Layer It: A Hot/Humid Day

LayerIt - Hot/Humid Day | Sacramento StreetSummer weather has hit most of the country in full force. Last week when I was road tripping through Oregon we hit some areas that were in the triple digits. Honestly, thats a little too hot for my taste. Since I’m not used to those temperatures I had some wardrobe adjusting to do. This look was my go-to ensemble for most of the trip. Who can go wrong with jean shorts and a sleeveless tunic? It’s the perfect combo. What do you normally wear to beat the heat?

it’s friday + link love!

Goodbye summer! Hello holiday weekend! I’m welcoming it with open arms, especially since we’re finally getting a burst of warm weather here in the city. It’s been a dreadfully cold summer. This week has been quite crazy in the Flemming household – work, dinners, events, and more. This afternoon I’m off to pamper myself before a busy weekend – a mani/pedi is in order that will be followed by a trip to Birch to fill our apartment with beautiful blooms.

Before you take off for the long weekend be sure to pop over and check out these fabulous post that I’m in love with this week:

* First, I’d like to welcome two new sponsors to Sacramento Street – Comfort & Samuel, Pinhole Press and Storkie.

* Loving this will be my Fall uniform . . .

* I’ll be making next week’s meal menu from this wonderful blog and I thank Daniella for introducing us.

* I’m glad all of you are equally obsessed with Pinterest as I am . . .

* Joslyn is constantly making me lust after wonderful things she features every week in this post . . .

* And lastly, it was my pleasure getting these lovely ladies to covet Astier as much as I do . . .

Cheers to a long holiday weekend – have fun, be safe and enjoy every minute of it! Hope you all have a lovely one.

xx, Caitlin

camp terrain . . .

I’ve been following Terrain for many years and daydreamed about what the store was like in person. Let me tell you, it’s beyond what you would expect. I’m going to warn you now, once you read this you’ll want to jump in your car or a plane and go visit. It’s out of this world and I wish it was around the corner from my house – although that would be dangerous.

As we embarked on our blogger’s day at Terrain we were welcomed by nature surrounding us in every which way, and the staff made us feel right at home. Everywhere you turned your head you were greeted with beauty – the plants, buildings and merchandise. I was in awe.

We had a full day of activities from a terrarium workshop, to a tour of the entire property that included them telling us about how they come up with inspiration for the entire store. We also has some amazing spa time in a mushroom hut and ended the marvelous day with a seven course meal that was out of this world (not to mention the group of people sitting around me were amazing and made me laugh so hard).

Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better day – it’s just what I needed. It’s something I wish I would do every day. Thank you to the entire Terrain team for bringing us out for summer camp and making it a day I will always remember. Next time we’ll have to sing around a camp fire.

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!

what are your getaway essentials?

Summer vacations are starting to get booked, wardrobe staples are being coveted and I think all of us are ready for some much needed getaways in the sunshine. This Vogue “Summer Getaway” article instantly got me thinking about what my summer essentials would be. The items that immediately pop into my head are my K. Jacques patent nude sandals, Vanessa Bruno tote, Eres bikini and of course OPI bright nail polish . . . I’m sure there are many more essentials.

I’d love to know what are your getaway essentials? I’m always on the lookout for what others are loving. Chime in!
