Living With Great Style

a brand new week . . .

Client project fabric. | Caitlin Flemming DesignHappy Monday everyone! After taking a much needed week off to enjoy visiting family and friends, relishing the summer days we’ve had here in the Bay Area, making homemade meals at home and just taking a few extra hours to do whatever my heart desired, I’m ready to get back in the swing of things. Usually I’m in the mind set of go, go, go but this summer I’ve had this feeling of unplugging and truly carving out time to do the simplest things – knitting, making jam with my mom, reading – it’s amazing what an hour here can do for your soul. How do all of you find the time to do the things you love?


This week is action packed – I’ll be sharing my latest jam recipe (I’ve already gone through a few jars!), a new layer it post that you’ll be wanting to see if you live in a hot city, a new workspace feature that has me wanting to re-arrange my own workspace and much more.


I hope all of you have a fabulous week ahead!

This weekend I was a tourist in my own city with guests in town. We drove over to Marin, went to the Legion of Honor, took a leisurely drive to the beach, went to our favorite restaurants, but best of all. It actually felt as though it was summer in the city. It was warm enough I didn’t need a sweater – friends this is rare. We’ve been having some spectacular weather lately. I can tell you one thing, I’ve been taking weekends off to relish these non-foggy days.


I hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead! It’s a short one for me – I’ll be road-tripping up to Oregon to visit friends and family. Do you have any plans for the 4th of July?

Taste of Summer | Sacramento StreetSummer has finally arrived and it feels so sweet. This weekend I took advantage of what I feel embodies summer – a little laziness, trips to the farmers market and long walks enjoying the sunshine. It definitely rejuvenated my soul for the busyness of the week that lies ahead. Don’t you love that feeling going into a new week? I sure do!


This week there is a lot in store – a layer it post that is basically what I want to wear every single day, a delicious recipe that was inspired by the farmers market, Natalie is bringing us a new blooms in season post (it’s stunning) and there is a lot more coming your way!


I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful sun-filled week!

a brand new week . . .

Vogue Living | Sacramento StreetHappy Monday! I hope all of you had a splendid weekend. These past few weeks have been pretty wonderful – I love being home, going to the farmers market and enjoying the city as it empties out for the summer. There is something so delightful about getting lost in your own city, discovering new things to do and doing the simplest things like taking walks around the neighborhood. I’m quite content with this non-traveling month.


This weekend I was able to break open some magazines, which completely inspired me for a couple of projects I have in the works. I need to remember that taking time to get inspired for projects is essential.


Cheers to the new week that lies ahead – whether you are at home or off on an incredible summer getaway!

Inspiration | Sacramento StreetThis weekend I suddenly got the urge to make a massive to-do list of everything I wanted to accomplish in our apartment this summer. It’s lengthy – from organizing closets, our pantry, the office, the linen closet, to installing wallpaper in our bathroom, to painting the guest bedroom . . . the list goes on and on. Sometimes I get caught up in my client projects and getting them settled and organized that I forget about my own life. This summer that isn’t happening. I’m carving out weekends to get these things checked off my list. It’s always hard for me to begin these projects because first comes the mess but then in the end it’s so worthwhile. Do you ever find yourself having the urge to finally organize every nook in your home?

 

Over the weekend, with the help of my mom, I was able to purge through my entire closet. It was quite a task! We took every single piece of clothing out and if I hadn’t worn it in the last year, it was going to Goodwill. Friends, Goodwill got a goldmine. Four trash bags later and two for my local consignment store and we were done. Can I just tell you that being back to actually seeing my clothes has already made my mornings that much sweeter. It was the perfect way to step into a new month.

 

My goal for this summer – get organized! What are you goals for these summer months ahead?
