the clouds in montereyyyy


this weekend we went to monterey, california, to attend the CONCURSO DE ITALIANO and CONCURSO DE ELEGANCE car shows.  it also happened to be my 23rd birthday so we celebrated with extravagant meals and nights full of good wine and car auctions.  as much as this weekend seemed to be NOT my cup of tea, it was actually fabulous and i cannot wait to attend the shows next august.


2010 lamborghini murcielago SV in the concurso de italiano.  my dad and brother managed to get our lunch tickets locked in the "bonnet" so we lunched on bud light and italian pretzels.  we also found a cute little animal jeweler and watched a terrible fashion show.



classic yellow lamborhginis at concurso de italiano


classic red ferraris at concurso de italiano.  there must have been at least 200 ferraris at this show and they all gleamed bright colors in the sun (the one day we even saw the sun).


at auction, a 2008 bugatti veyron



also at auction, a 1971 lamborghini muira (favorite)



23rd bday festivities at cibo - also a memorialization of my terrible sunburn!


we did some car photoshoots - note my dad's "italian stampede" baseball hat


2010 lamborghini murcielago SUPER VELOCE


2009 maserati quatraporte glamor shot :)



my favorite favorite part of monterey/carmel = the sea life.  our hectic schedule left no time to visit the monterey bay aquarium but it is an absolute MUST when on vacation in this quaint beach village!

outfit posts coming soon!
