Sacramento Street

Living With Great Style

a brand new week . . .

What a spectacular weekend – it was filled with gorgeous warm weather, quality time catching up with girlfriends, a little Halloween fun and a lazy Sunday that I needed in a huge way. All in all I wish every weekend could be just like it.


A few things that inspired me this week . . . peonies from the flower market, a postcard from my dear friend Amy, my new go-to necklace by Kora, a weekend find at Cris consignment – my new Dries heels (can’t wait to wear these beauties) and lastly, a Muse magazine that is filled with tons of warm weather fashion inspiration. What’s been inspiring you lately?

Cheers to a productive week ahead for all of us! Can you believe tomorrow is November?

I’m Loving . . .

Perfecting a messy bun seems more challenging than wearing my hair down. Do any of you feel the same way? This one in particular is at the perfect height and is slightly messy, but not too messy that it looks like you just rolled out of bed. I’ll be attempting it this weekend.

A delicious treat that’s perfect for a movie night at home. It’s the grownup version of milk and cookies!

Who doesn’t need a little metallic on their desk? This is going on my Christmas wish list.

It’s been another whirlwind week at work and after tomorrow’s photo shoot I’ll be ready to unwind at home being lazy and cozying up in bed with my stack of magazines I’ve been neglecting. Wish we could skip Friday and go straight into the weekend!

it’s all in the case + giveaway . . .

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect iPad case for some time now – to be honest it’s almost been a year. First we bought the standard black one that Apple sells, but it was way too boring in my opinion. Then I ditched the regular iPad case and stored it in one of my Clare Vivier clutches, but Eric wasn’t a huge fan of that. So the search for the perfect one continued for months and months. Then one day I had a little time to do some research and went to one of my favorite sites Graphic Image – I have their address book, business card holder, and agenda (yes, I’m obsessed). As I poked around I saw that they were now carrying iPad cases!

Tada, this is the case that I picked and it came just in time for our Dallas trip this past weekend. It goes with all of my other Graphic Image products. It’s like the textbook cover you always wanted in high school.

I know that there are a lot of you out there that have probably been on the same hunt. Well, it’s all ending today readers because today I’m giving away a personalized iPad case!

Here’s how to enter:

- Pop over to Graphic Image to let me know which color is your favorite.

- Follow Graphic Image on twitter.

- For an extra entry follow Graphic Image on Facebook.

A winner will be selected next Monday at 3pm PST.

In the meantime, Graphic Image had kindly offered a discount for Sacramento Street readers. Upon checkout enter STREET to receive 20% off the entire store! This discount will be available for a month (hello, get some early Christmas shopping done!).

Good luck everyone!

to bare or not to bare . . .

We’re currently in that time of year where you don’t know if you can go outside with bare legs or if tights are needed. Yesterday, I took a leap of faith with the weather and went sans tights. Well, let me tell you, I had shivers all day long – the blue sky and sunshine are such a tease this time of year.

This outfit is the perfect look that could go bare legged with or cover with a sleek pair of tights and look equally as chic. Don’t you think?

Are you having the same problem? I hope I’m not alone . . .

a brand new week + a winner . . .

Happy Monday! After a fabulous trip to Dallas this weekend it’s nice to be back home and settled back into the daily routine. Some highlights from this weekend were the beautiful Belmont Hotel where we stayed, the incredible food we had at Bolsa and Oddfellows, shopping at some of Joslyn’s secret spots around town and going to the Dallas Museum of Art. The best part though was spending some quality time with Joslyn and her family. After going over to her house on Friday night I was incredibly inspired by her home that I wanted to copy everything she’s done. I’m in awe!

Now for the winner of the Estée Lauder giveaway . . . . CONGRATS Viviana!

Don’t worry readers – I’ve got another amazing giveaway going live on Wednesday! Believe me, you won’t want to miss this one.

Have a lovely week!
