Carmel to San Francisco

This jacket had the perfect pop of polish to take my jeans and gingham out to dinner. We dined at my old favorite Nob Hill Cafe on my last night in San Francisco. The Tweed Lady jacket with ties was also at home in a Carmel garden earlier that week. It a great piece for fall in my favorite navy with pops of pink.

Memories from the Big Chair

“Welcome to your life, there’s no turning back”, was one of my favorite lines from “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears from the Songs from the Big Chair album.  My recent return to the Monterey Peninsula brought back all those memories.  XM radio 80s on 8 has made my seven year old a fan of the music at least.  He smiled when the cover band at the Tonga Room played it on our last night in San Francisco.

This preppy look is not much different from what I would have worn in high school other than I’m sure I was more hesitant to mix navy and black BACK THEN.

Horsing Around in Carmel

“You have to keep it”, said the VPS when I tried to return this sweatshirt to J. Crew.  I had gone on a bit of spree and was editing my choices.  It it sold out soon after and I ended up wearing it a lot (and I am still wearing it several years later).  There is nothing better than a well worn and loved item of clothing.  There is another sweatshirt (linked below) that I picked up in Carmel and have already worn on repeat.  I will feature it in Fridays’ post.  I styled this one with tweed mules, denim and a button down.

Tigers and Green Juice

My son and I kicked off our twelve day mother and son road trip with a week in my old stomping grounds, the Monterey Peninsula.  He attended camp with a few of his school friends and it was so fun to bring him back to where I grew up.  A childhood friend showed me Earthbound Farms the first day and got me hooked on her favorite fresh pressed green juice (kale, spinach, parsley, cucumber).  It became my daily afternoon pick me up and I have now found it at home in Los Angeles.  She was happy to oblige and be my photographer in this beautiful setting.

I styled a new favorite tee with my vintage cropped jeans, gingham cardigan, sunglasses, leopard print pouch and my brand new navy and rose gold kicks.
