Cheers, to a woman who has always been the light of my life and my very best friend. One whom I am able to call just about every day, just to see what’s happenin’. (Some days when I’m on my way home from work, I brainstorm, trying to think of any reason to call.) This is for a woman who gives anything and everything to her children and who’s main concern is making everyone happy. To a woman who can put together a spread like you’ve never seen in about 4 seconds flat, (complete with every cracker imaginable, a plethora of cheeses, chocolates, fruits & veggies, and anything else you can imagine… really…). To a woman who can tie a scarf and accessorize like a pro, who gives fabulous advice and has the solution for any problem. She has been my confidant, my teacher, friend, editor, (how many high school and college papers do you think you proofread for me throughout my schooling career!?), cheerleader, and definitely my biggest fan. Thank you mama for everything you have taught me in my life. You mean more to me than you know.
Happy Mothers Day to a true beauty queen, inside and out. I hope you feel very loved, because you are.

I have been so obsessive about finding the perfect set of rings lately that I can wear everyday… that are my staple… that i will love forever. It’s getting to the point of madness. All 8 windows on my phone will be open to different rings at one time… debating… considering… man my life is seeming very frivolous right at this moment. Anyway, these are my picks. I picked up the Erica Anenberg Beau Ideal ring this morning on Hautelook! What a steal!

There is nothing fancy schmancy about this get-up. But this is me. If I ran into you on the street and was like “oh, hey! I was just on my way to Trader Joe’s to pick up some dried mangos,” there is a 95.4% chance that I would be wearing this exact outfit… because I wear it every day.
The gray linen v-neck from J.Crew is probably my staple and number one go to. I should probably buy another one just incase I wear my first one out. Comfy worn jeans are second. I carry a scarf with me at all times because I am always cold no matter where I am… (even in summer). My gold arrow bracelet and marc jacobs watch EVVVERYDAY. And some fabulous Chloe sunglasses I just scored on Hautelook… killer deal. The one thing that is different is the bag. Mine is leopard print. But alas, couldn’t find it.

What do you constantly wear that you couldn’t live without?
Lots of Love and Happy Weekend!

I have found that most days there is a high cloud cover that blankets most of Encinitas. I never knew about this until we moved here… and through talking with people have found that many stay away from living on the beach because of the gray. It is funny, when you drive inland about 5-10 minutes, skies are blue without a cloud in the sky, but if you look toward the ocean, you can see a gray wall that lines the water perfectly. After much consideration, I have decided I don’t mind being blanketed in gray. It makes the blue days that much better.
Our typical day: 2 dirty dogs needing baths, beach walks, gray sweaters, high messy pony tails, and Clay usually repping his Lakers hat (even after their terrible loss… sometimes I wonder if he even cares about basketball. He calls himself a Lakers fan, but we haven’t watched a game in over a year…)
Encinitas is starting to feel like home.

Let’s start with the best thing that happened to me this week… and probably for many many weeks to come. A new addition to the family entered this world at only 5 lbs. 9 oz. and he is perfect.
A happy pedicure and a new pair of shoes.
Driving down the 101 to our favorite Mexican food joint.
Only the best dessert in the history of dessert. (I may be the only one who thinks this.) MOCHI BALLS! Anyone? Anyone? Ya, probably the only one.
Some light reading at the beach.
Passion Fruit tea bringing a little joy to my morning.
And just a little experiment: Raw Quartz earrings, soon to Fringe and Floral! (I am actually very much in love with them…)
Now… I am headed off to meet the new little one! I am so excited, can’t hardly stand it!!!!

The skies are very gray today. But I know that somewhere above the clouds spring is in full force… The heavens are just keeping it to themselves for a little while. So while I am waiting for the clouds to part, I am conjuring up my spring must haves list to make this season even more glorious.

1 // Anthropologie Swimsuit. Sold out the day after I make the silly collage. But one similar and equally cute HERE!
2 // Warby Parker Tortoise Shades
3 // Rachel Roy Dal Embellished Sandals
4 // Lavender Shine Collar
5 // Keds for Kate Spade
6 // Living In a Modern Way
7 // Noel Stewart Beach Hat
8 // Free People Head Wrap
What are your go-to pieces this Spring? I’d love to know!!

Spring is finally here and there is nothing I want more than to open my windows, doors, and let in some FRESH air! These spaces scream spring and everything spring entails: Light, bright, airy and serene.
The old me, from 2011, believed that a wall unpainted, or left stark white was more boring than ordering pepperoni pizza at a gourmet pizza parlor. (sorry Clay, but it’s true.) Since then, my mind has done a complete 180 and the vast white wall is looking enticing for some reason. I love these spring spaces with their clean lines and touches of the outdoors here and there. I’m inspired to bring the outside in this spring!
