Living With Great Style

a brand new week . . .

Kate Arends | The Everygirl


Happy Monday! With a new season, comes new traditions. I start out each week with a tidy house, laundry put away and a to-do list ready for me to conquer. The Monday blues are common for so many people but lately I’ve found that with this new tradition I have a completely different “let’s go” attitude when Monday rolls around. I feel energized to get tasks crossed off my daunting to-do list. I highly recommend doing this if you need a way to get motivated for your work week.


Do you have any tips for kicking the Monday blues goodbye?


I hope all of you have a splendid week ahead!

Weekend Inspiration

White blooms

I hope all of you are having a lovely weekend so far! After a week of spring cleaning the office, we started working our way through the house slowly but steadily. It makes it feel like spring is officially here! Have you been doing any spring cleaning? I always have to remind myself that first comes the mess, which makes me crazy. I’d love to here if you have any tips on how you go about organizing your house!


Also please enjoy a few of my favorite links from this week:


Looking for items to add to your house this spring? Check out this feature over on Refinery 29 where I shared my top 5 items.


I’m constantly looking for new things to do in Napa. Camille put together a fabulous guide and I’m honored to be one of the insiders she interviewed.


These six mirror options would look good in any home.


I’ve been helping Alicia with her new Sacramento loft. Check out how the bedroom is coming together.


I’m kind of obsessed with this art work.

I’m Loving . . .

Spring Whites
I don’t know about you, but now that it’s officially spring I’ve been busting out more and more of my summer whites. I can’t wait for warmer weather to come this weekend.


White Peonies
It’s peony season! My favorite flower is finally back and I can’t wait to pick up my first bunch.


Wallpaper for a Kids Room
This kids room is absolutely adorable – the star wallpaper totally makes it.


Block Shelving

 

Love the way you can put things inside and on top of these box shelves.


Window Seat

 

Since getting back from my trip I’ve been more and more into taking the time to enjoy a few books that I’ve been dying to read. It’s amazing how a vacation brings on new habits.

Shop Talk: Lilify in Monterey

Shop Talk- Lilify | Sacramento StreetShop Talk- Lilify | Sacramento StreetShop Talk- Lilify | Sacramento Street

 

As you know, I’m constantly on the hunt for new boutiques or antique shops here in San Francisco and when I travel. After a road trip down to Carmel to visit family a couple years ago, I was introduced to Lilify – one of my aunt’s go-to shops for unique finds. It quickly became one of my favorite places to visit when in town. Lilify is filled with so much goodness and inspiration. It’s a feast for your eyes. From the plethora of artisan goods, to the vintages finds, to the jewelry, and so much more – Hanni and Jesse have curated Lilify to perfection. Each time I’ve stepped inside it’s as though I’ve been transported into inspiration heaven. I instantly find myself picking up a handful of goodies that need to come home with me immediately.

A little history on the owners. Hanni and Jesse moved to Monterey, California with the goal of putting their talents to good use by completely renovating a dilapidated building. They saw an incredible vision for what the building could be transformed into, especially when it came to the commercial space downstairs – formerly a bar, which is now home to Lilify. After two years of putting their hearts and souls into the space, Lilify opened its doors in late 2012.

Since opening, Lilify has just added another layer of excellence to make the experience that much sweeter. You can now enjoy a cup of Bright Coffee as you wander through the shop finding beautiful treasures.

 

The next time you find yourself down in the Carmel/Monterey area add this treasured gem to your list of places to go. You won’t regret it!

Layer It: A Day at the Museum

Layer It: Day at the Museum | Sacramento Street
There is nothing I love more than spending the day bottling up inspiration at a museum. We’re fortunate here in San Francisco to have a handful of museums that not only get one of a kind collections, but are also architecturally stunning in their own right. I cannot wait to head over to the DeYoung Museum to see the brand new Georgia O’Keefe exhibit. I fell in love with her work when I traveled to Santa Fe a few years ago. I have a feeling I’ll be going a few times to see this particular exhibit.

 

The Basics:

 

2.) Paris Mid Rise Jeans 

 

The Layers:
3.) ‘Diorshow Extase’ Mascara 

 

4.) Retro Weave Infinity Scarf 

 

5.) Secret Garden Mixed Stone Studs 

 

 

 

8.) Tom Ford 50 mm Optical Glasses 

 

9.) Anne Klein Round Slim Leather Watch
