I love adding a pop of color when I wear black and white. I am in total lust with this Panacea chunky Howlite necklace. I can see so many different outfits that it can be paired with all through the year. This is definitely a statement piece that can add to any ensemble and did I mention it’s on sale for $56 bucks?
Last week, my husband and I spent the day in San Francisco. I love that we live 45 minutes away and if you leave early enough, you miss any traffic! We ate chocolate croissants and lattes at a little French cafe’. Our 4 year old son, Will, came with us and while I had my hair done at the salon, Neil and Will explored the city. After I was done, we walked around Chinatown which still had the Chinese New Year’s decorations up. I love visiting San Francisco. There has always been a huge part of me that feels like a city girl inside even though I grew up in a town full of vineyards and cowboys. When I was a teenager, I spent three Summers in New York City, by myself in a Julliard dorm, dancing with School of American Ballet. Maybe that is where this longing to be in a big city stems from?
I don’t love Valentine’s Day for the gifts, the chocolates or the mushy card. I love it because it’s a day dedicated to showing the person or persons in your life how much YOU love THEM. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a mushy card but who it’s from is what puts a smile on my face and melts my heart. Life becomes so busy and chaotic with four kiddos that we probably don’t celebrate our love enough. This year, Valentine’s Day is a little more symbolic for us.
I love any excuse to rock my leather moto jacket. It can be easily used for a relaxed look or even paired with a cute dress. I have also worn this jacket with yoga pants and a sweatshirt to drop my kids off at school. That’s how awesome it is!
