Living With Great Style

a brand new week . . .

Alaska | Sacramento StreetPopping in from Alaska – I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed the long weekend! Eric and I have been enjoying our babymoon up in Alaska. The beauty that you find around every single corner is breathtaking. It’s amazing what a little time surrounded by nature can do for your soul. The tranquility of being on the water has made it extra special.

I’m excited for the next few adventures that are ahead. I can’t wait to share my travel tales when I get back!

Enjoy this short week and be sure to pop by for a handful of fun posts.

Travel Essentials: Alaska

Travel Essentials : Alaska | Sacramento Street Travel Essentials : Alaska | Sacramento Street It was almost 20 years ago that I took my very first trip to Alaska. I remember the stunning glaciers, sea otters and whales. When Eric and I sat down to plan our babymoon we wanted to go someplace adventurous, beautiful and unexpected. I’d say this isn’t your typical babymoon. Plus, it has been on Eric’s bucket list for quite some time. With that being said, we are combining luxury with adventure by going on a cruise. I can’t wait for our boat – the Celebrity Solstice to take us from one port to the next where we’ll be disembarking to different excursions (including hiking on glaciers!!!).

When packing for Alaska I knew I’d have to prepare for any kind of weather – sun, rain, and ice cold temperatures when hiking. A few readers reached out about what I was bringing because they are planning trips to Alaska as well – looks like it’s a popular destination! That’s why I wanted to share my packing list with all of you. The most important essential – a super warm Woolrich jacket that I have a feeling I’ll be living in the entire trip.

1.) Plaid Mix Scarf

2.) Igor Caviar Velvet

3.) ‘Pronto’ Dry Shampoo

4.) The Vacationers

5.) Tiny Dot Socks

6.) Alexis Hat

7.) Perfect Cardigan

8.) Arctic Parka

9.) Zhumell 10x 42mm Short Barrel Waterproof Binoculars

10.) Roam Black Metallic Boots

I hope this helps you pack for your next cold weather getaway – the winter months will be here before you know it!

Weekend Inspiration

AlaskaAfter an incredibly productive week, today Eric and I are setting sail for our last getaway before baby Flemming arrives. We’re traveling up to Seattle to embark on a week-long cruise to Alaska. We cannot wait for the adventure that awaits! While this isn’t your typical babymoon, we wanted to go somewhere that was adventurous, but still relaxing. I can’t wait for our glacier helicopter ride and dogsledding. You can follow along on instagram for updates but I promise I’ll be sharing every detail when I return. And don’t worry, I have a whole line of amazing posts for next week!

In the meantime, pop over to these sites for some fabulous reads this weekend.

- I’m obsessing over this home tour over on Camille Styles.

- How adorable is this New Mom & Baby box? Simone did an amazing job with this gift box!

- Get an inside look into the RealReal offices.

- Love the way Jenny’s library bookshelves came together!

- When I get back from my trip I’ll be making this Fall Cornbread Panzanella salad.

*and a few fun things you may have missed!

- Looking to update your house a little bit? Throw pillows are always an easy way to do it.

- Natalie put together a stunning arrangement this month.

- I can’t wait for fall – I can’t wait for lots of layers and finding new scarves to wrap myself up in.

I hope all of you have a lovely Labor Day weekend!

On The Hunt : Throw Pillows

On The Hunt : Throw Pillows | Sacramento Street

With a new season beginning, there isn’t a better way to update your home than with a couple of new throw pillows! Whenever I’m in the mood to change things up around our apartment or if a client wants a little something new, I always begin with the pillows. It’s the easiest and most cost effective purchase.

I’ve sourced from some of my go-to sites for clients to bring you my top six pillows I would bring into your home this season. Hope these make it into some of your homes.

1.) Akerkulla Cushion Cover (Save!)
2.) Damask Toss Pillow
3.) Tiered Fringe Pillow
4.) Crewel Key Pillow Cover
5.) Kamile Pillow, Chalkboard
6.) Nisa Pillow (Splurge.)

Here are a few more of my favorite pillows:

I’m Loving . . .

Scandinavian Bathroom | Style Files

There is nothing I love more than an all white bathroom. This one in particular is gorgeous!

Leek and chèvre soufflé omelette | Gourmet Traveller

Lately, breakfast for dinner has been happening quite a bit – this leek and chèvre soufflé omelette might have to be on the dinner table soon.

street style

This week my go-to look has been black jeans or leggings and a grey tee. There isn’t anything better than running around town in something comfy while sourcing for clients.

kitchen | blood and champagne

Honestly, could my kitchen look like this? Love the combination of white subway tile, marble and the rustic open shelving.

nursery | sissy + marley

Not only am I designing my own nursery, but I’m also designing a few for clients as well. This nursery has given me tons of inspiration lately.

What are you loving this week?
