Four Favorites: Sweaters

Four Favorites : Sweaters | Sacramento Street


Here in San Francisco it’s almost always sweater weather. I either have one on or in my bag in case the fog rolls in. Let’s just say my collection of sweaters doesn’t go unused since we wear them year round. I’ve been on the hunt for a few new ones to add to my closet and these are the front runners – all of them timeless that won’t go out of style.

Do you have any favorite sweaters that you love or that are on your wish list?


1.) Wool Blend Sweater

3.) Double Faced Wool Hooded Poncho

4.) Cashmere Chunkey Turtleneck Sweater

Interiors: My Dream Chair

| Sacramento Street


When we moved into our new apartment a year and a half ago I had a vision and wish list for the pieces I wanted. There is nothing I love more than mixing old and new together. With that being said, incorporating a touch of modern with antiques in each room is important to me.


The quest began for a chair for a corner in our dining room. It’s been sitting empty, waiting to be filled with the perfect lounge chair.

I’ve always had a love affair with white Barcelona chairs. I’ve dreamt of having one in my own home for years. When I began my search for one I found that my dream chair was a little to pricey for my budget. That’s when I was introduced to Rove Concepts who offers mid-century modern replica designs that are more affordable. Friends, it’s one of my new go-to sources for client projects. When my Barcelona chair (in Siena White) arrived I was in awe of its beautiful soft leather.

Let’s just say, what used to be an unused spot in our home is now my favorite spot to sit back to enjoy a warm cup of tea, a stack of magazines or catching up on my favorite sites. I have to say, although this chair is modern – it will forever be timeless in my eyes. I know that I’ll be able to move it from room to room if I ever get the itch to redecorate. And we all know that happens quite often!

Layer It: Grey On Grey

Layer It : Grey on Grey | Sacramento Street


There is no denying that I’m in quite obsessed with anything grey – sweaters, pants, handbags, and even jewelry. Usually I mix and match my grey pieces with black or white, but lately I’ve been going grey on grey. At first I was a little wary of the whole thing, but after gathering some inspiration over on Pinterest I decided to give it a go. I haven’t looked back since!

a brand new week . . .

View from the Presidio, SF

Hope all of you have had a great start to your week. Weekends seem to come and go so quickly – especially when we have beautiful spring like weather. While most of the East Coast was preparing for the snow storm, we enjoyed lunches outside and a long hike around the Presidio. It was just what the doctor ordered since our household has felt like we are coming down with colds. A little fresh air made us feel so much better.

To all of you on the East Coast – stay warm and be safe out there!

On The Menu: Acai Bowl

On The Menu: Acai Bowl | Sacramento Street

Breakfast is one of those things that’s really good for you but no one seems to have time for it. Or at least I don’t. For a while my breakfast was two cups of coffee and nothing else. I quickly learned that by 11 am I was so hungry that I would eat anything that was in sight. Hangry doesn’t even begin to describe it. Also, it is not the best tactic if you are ever trying to watch what you eat.

These days I am making more of an effort to remember breakfast, not in a brunching French toast sort of way, but in a healthy, lets start the day off right kind of way. Enter the acai bowl. If you haven’t heard about acai before (I only recently discovered it) it is a superfood berry that is filled with antioxidants and nutrients. The fruit is from South America and is extremely perishable, so it is usually sent to stores frozen or in powder form. For my acai breakfast bowl, I use the frozen packets that are found in the frozen food aisle of many supermarkets and grocery stores. I recently found it at Costco so I think it is safe to say that acai is pretty readily available.

Because it is frozen it is perfect for a breakfast bowl or smoothie. I like to blend acai with some frozen fruit, coconut milk, and honey, then top it with whatever fruit, granola and other toppings I can find. My favorite these days is granola, lots of fruit, a sprinkle of bee pollen (which is also really good for you) and my newest food obsession, Dang Coconut – if you haven’t had Dang yet, run, don’t walk to your nearest specialty food store, I am obsessed with it, it is so good.

Enjoy! ~ Amanda
