Maybe it was the tease of this weekend’s 75 degree weather and sunshine, but I started daydreaming about summer tans, crisp white t-shirts, and faded denim. I am always immediately drawn to creams and whites, as soon as it gets a little warmer. After recently cleaning my closet, it makes it easy to reassess what you have and what pieces you may want to incorporate.
Happy Sunday! I’m currently week-ending in Palm Springs, and that little bit of sunshine has been a warm welcome compared to the “chilly” temperatures California has seen lately. (Sorry East Coast friends!) But for me, this time of year is when California really shines. It is cool in the day, but the sun is out, putting you in a good mood. You can wear a jacket, but a with T-shirt underneath.
Last weekend, we took an impromptu road trip. We packed up the car, the kids (aka the dog) and headed 90 minutes east of Los Angeles to Palm Springs. One of the best reasons about living in California is being able to take a last minute outing to a myriad of places like Santa Barbara, Big Sur, Ojai, Los Olivos, etc.
As it is January and it seems that everyone in the world is “kondo-ing” their homes, I wanted to post some of my favorite kitchen essentials. I recently streamlined my equipment and utensils, and compiled my most used items in the kitchen.
This time of year I have the art of ‘hygge’ down to a science, one that includes warm and cozy loungewear. I really love this pajama duo from Madewell at the moment. I like the ease and accidental stylishness of a matching set, replacing a mismatched jumble of pieces from years past.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a nice holiday celebrating and welcoming in 2019. I have to say I am usually ready to immediately take down the holiday decorations, but my house feels so festive, I am a little sad to put it all away.
The Christmas countdown is on! I can’t believe it’s less than a week away. I have done some Christmas shopping and made some spiked eggnog with my friends to get into the festive spirit. Now it is crunch time to finish up those final Christmas errands!
