Living With Great Style


As temperatures rise across the country I’m longing to see a break in the clouds with a sliver of sunshine beaming down. It’s high time for Bay Area weather to peak over 58 degrees. So I’m bringing myself a little bit of hope and inspiration for when those days come in the near future (right Mother Nature?) . . .

A light and airy summer dress is definitely a must-have for warmer temps and of course who wouldn’t want to pair it with a chic hat . . . do you have a favorite this season?

Warm days call for spending as much time outdoors – eating breakfast while reading the newspaper, curling up in that perfect spot to catch some rays and of course throwing impromptu dinner parties to savor the sun setting a little later as each day passes. What do you have planned to take advantage of the warmer temperatures? Indulge me because it’s supposed to rain this weekend.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Enjoy the sunshine where ever you might be.

striking sun light

With the sun shining bright and the air oh-so warm, it’s time to break out long dresses, bright pops of color and of course, show off your legs. With temperatures raising to above 80 degrees in San Francisco it’s definitely the perfect opportunity to do so. What’s not to love about warm sunshine?

a breath of warm weather . . .

The saying “April showers brings May flowers” is what I find myself saying when a cold rainy day approaches in April. I always hope that it will turn my frown up-side-down. This year has been unseasonably cold throughout the entire country and I think we’re all ready for some warm days spent outside reading with a cold glass of lemonade and gathering around an outside table for late night dinners or mimosa brunches. So mother nature, if you can hear me, could you please send all of us some warm rays of sunshine?

It’s time to step into April – I’m excited for the weather to warm up (hello 75 degrees), wearing bright bold dresses and picnics in the park. It’s time to enjoy the outdoors!

This weekend is going to embrace all of these things. I’m looking forward to soaking up some sun while we play softball and a light sea breeze keeps us cool. I’ll also be heading to the Alameda flea market – I’m hoping to find some treasures for a client. What are all of you up to this weekend?

May April bring fun new endeavors to all of us! Have a lovely weekend everyone.

xx, Caitlin

easy breezy . . .

Everyone around the Bay Area is cherishing this glorious weather. The sunshine and light sea breeze is heavenly. In came crisp cotton sheets, light summer blankets and beautiful blooms. I’m soaking up all of the rays while I can, because let’s face it, we’ll be experiencing “June gloom” soon.
