Living With Great Style

Layer It: Not That Simple

Layer It : Not Too Simple | Sacramento Street


LatelyI’ve mastered the casual wear. While it may seem simple, I’ve been trying to jazz it up a bit by pairing a leather jacket with what otherwise might be considered a lazy day ensemble. I’m all about comfort!


Layer It : Not Too Simple | Sacramento Street

 

WhileI usually throw on a pair of leggings before leaving the house, I realized that if I paired together the right pieces I could continue to wear my comfy drawstring pants for walks around our neighborhood, play dates and trips to the grocery store. This is the look that has been on regular rotation the past few weeks. I’m loving it. Don’t you love finding a new look within your own wardrobe?


The Basics

1.) Outdoor Voices Sweats


2.) Ultimate Leather Jacket (I also have my eyes on this one!)


The Layers

3.) Metro Round Leather Strap Watch


4.) Mini Knot Ring


5.) Relaxed Merino Wool Sweater


6.) Jinsy Slip-On Sneaker


7.) The Transport Tote

a brand new week . . .

weekend reading

 

After a wonderful weekend with family in town I’m ready for this week to begin. Although I don’t have a lot of “me” time, I realized this weekend that I haven’t opened up a book in quite some time. And since I don’t have any on my radar I wanted to turn to you for suggestions. Have you read any good books lately? Can’t wait to hear what you’ve all been reading lately.

Bring the Picnic Indoors

Bring the Picnic Indoors | Sacramento Street


Everyone is dreaming of spring, blossoming trees, warm sunshine and temperatures above freezing. With Arctic temperatures hitting most of the country, no one wants to go outside. It’s time to get creative with what you can do indoors. I’ve been day dreaming about gathering friends for an outdoor picnic for months but that’s not really possible for awhile so I decided to bring my picnic indoors. Why should I wait until the weather gets warmer?

My first order of business was to create a cozy spot where everyone would want to sit, eat, drink and enjoy themselves for hours on end. The key ingredient – comfy pillows and blankets to cover the floor. When creating an indoor picnic you want to be sure everyone will want to kick off their shoes, curl up and enjoy each other’s company. Be sure to have yummy treats and wine of course. I referenced our guide to creating the perfect cheese board that our team put together this past fall.

On The Hunt: Jams and Spreads

On The Hunt : Jams and Spreads | Sacramento Street

 

This past summer and fall I went through a serious nesting phase while pregnant. I made dozens of canned pickles and jam. Well, I just used the last spoon full of my homemade jam and my heart sank a little bit. Since it’s not berry season I went on a quest to find an alternative because my mornings and snacks would not be completely with either a jar of preserves, jam or honey. There is nothing I love more than a warm biscuit and tea in the morning.

Press: Jackson’s Nursery Reveal

Nursery | Design by Caitlin Flemming | Photo by Bess Friday

 

Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.


Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.

A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.
