Sacramento Street

Living With Great Style

keeping it casual . . .

With the holiday weekend right around the corner, all my mind can think about is enjoying the beautiful weather, eating delicious food and throwing on my comfy basics – I mean what more could a girl ask for? I can’t wait to enjoy the empty city with family and friends.

What are you looking forward to this holiday weekend? I’m counting the hours until we are out tomorrow afternoon!

a stunning abode . . .

When I came across this stunning petite bungalow over on Jessica’s blog – my mouth popped open, my heart started beating rapidly and my eyes couldn’t stop looking at all of the lovely details in every photo. From the Spanish architecture to the marble fireplace to the way it’s designed – it completely embodies what I love most about homes. Can you imagine how lovely this must be in person? I can only dream . . .

Miss Jessica sure is lucky to work for such a brilliant designer – lucky duck!

let it shine . . .

I was just thinking that San Francisco wasn’t going to get any June gloom, but today felt like we zoomed past summer and fall, right into December. It was pouring buckets of rain, dark and humid – not a great combination. So I started day dreaming about the sunny days that are about to grace us and how I want to relish them. San Franciscans don’t take warm sunny weather for granted. If you’ve got the sun shining down on you – get outside, only if it’s for a walk or to run errands or to sit with a cold glass of ice tea and your favorite summer read. Enjoy it!

a taste of summer . . .

Although there is fog in the city, it doesn’t mean that we don’t get to enjoy summer weather – let’s just say you’ve got to get creative. Like hopping in a car and driving up north to Napa. But on the rare summer days that are warm in the city, you’ll find me soaking in the sun in the back yard with my a good book and enjoying one of these delicious mojitos. My best friend from high school and I always meet up for them at our favorite joint in Portland, but this year we might have to make them ourselves. I can tell you one thing, I’ll definitely be indulging in these over the next few months!

a brand new week . . .

Happy Monday everyone! I hope all of you had a fun, rejuvenating weekend – I sure did. I felt like I accomplished so much the past two days and enjoyed some quality time relaxing. It ended with an impromptu trip up to Napa yesterday for a garden party – lots of delicious food (I ate entirely too much), lots of sunshine and I met some amazing people.

Now, I know on Friday I said that today would be the day that you would see my apartment, but I received an email this morning that it’s been postponed two weeks. I’m terribly sorry and I hope you understand. The photographer that I worked with, Michelle Drewes and I put together a little something special for Sacramento Street readers for when it’s finally revealed – it’s worth the wait, I promise. In the meantime, I wanted to share one photo that isn’t being used. I love the way these anemones look in photos.

Hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead of you. Be sure to enter the amazing West Elm giveaway that went live yesterday and thanks for understanding!
