Sacramento Street

Living With Great Style

a new week . . .

This weekend I danced my way into summer by filling our apartment with beautiful blooms (dying over these dogwood branches), fresh homemade meals and of course busting out my summer sandals. This long weekend was incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating – it was one of those weekends where I was finally able to sit at home with a cup of tea and enjoy some good reads. I even went and picked up two new summer reads: How Did You Get This Number and Atlas of Unknowns. Taking time to slow down, sleep in a little longer and enjoying time at home is exactly the way I needed to start summer. How did all of you begin your summer? I hope all of you relished an extra day off as much as I did – it felt like such a luxury!

Have a wonderful start to your week!

happy friday!

Happy long weekend lovelies! I’ve got a pretty relaxing weekend ahead of me, which I couldn’t be more excited about. I plan on spending some quality time at home with Eric, tackling my bookcase that is busting at the seams and most importantly getting through my stack of glossies and new books. Hopefully we’ll be graced with some sunshine so I can take some walks around the neighborhood – they always bring me loads of inspiration.

I can’t wait to press the pause button this weekend and just do whatever comes my way. It’s so important to have days that you can do this. How are you spending this Memorial Day weekend?

Have a lovely weekend and see you back here on Tuesday!

xx, Caitlin

ps. All of you sure do know how to make a girl feel special! Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday.

time to celebrate . . .

I’m officially in my late-twenties! Sort of strange to say it out loud, but I’m embracing it. It’s amazing to look back on what you have done over the course of a year and this one in particular has felt like I’ve accomplished so many milestones.

What’s on the agenda . . . last night I had a lovely girls dinner with my best friends, today I’ll be driving up to Napa to spend the day at the pool soaking up some much needed sunshine and relaxing in a mineral pool. To top off the day Eric and I will be going to our friends new restaurant that just opened in the city.

Hope all of you have a lovely day and I’ll see all of you back here tomorrow!

fireplace: which one do you adore?

Although we’re creeping up on June (can you believe it?) – I suddenly came across loads of fireplaces that gave me a lot of inspiration (which is probably due to the fact that it’s cold and rainy in San Francisco today). Who knew it could be so chilly in May? I’ve had dreams about having a fireplace one day, but if I had to decide I can honestly say that I have no idea what kind of fireplace I would want. Would you have a modern or classic fireplace? I know we all dream of having one, so chime in!

sneak peek: glitter guide shoot

This past Sunday the Flemming household was taken over by the amazingly talented Glitter Guide team, Taylor and Alicia. Let me tell you, there was never a dull moment – from the constant humming and dancing of Alicia, to the wardrobe changes, to the wind blowing my hat off my head (got to love SF’s gusts of wind). Let’s just say we had a blast and I’m excited to share just a few sneak peek photos that Alicia took throughout the day. You’ll have to wait to see the rest once Glitter Guide launches mid-June. Enjoy!
