Happy Wednesday my friends!  I’m very much in the thick of decorating still and scouring the interwebs for all of the pretty things, so today’s post is a few favorites I found at Candelabra!  As usual I’m a fan of organic, modern and all gold everything!  And mixing them all is my absolute favorite.  Friday I’ll be sharing the second half of our living room, and our fireplace makeover,which I’m extra excited about!  Since we’ve moved my nose has been to the ground trying to tackle project after project and it’s so fun to see some of them wrapping up and be able to share with you!  Ok, have a great day and happy decorating!  xx- Sarah { 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // }

Tommy Bahama & SELF Magazine #3

Hey friends!  I’m back with more Tommy Bahama/Self Magazine goodness today in part three of my four post series where I share some Spring/Summer beachy fashion inspiration and exercises to get you in shape for my new favorite sport-stand up paddle boarding!  {Play catch up here and here if you missed}

Ok, let’s start with these pants.  Crazy good, RIGHT?!  I’m pretty much wearing them non-stop.  High waisted, comfortable, adorable- they check all my boxes.  And on beach days, with this top, I’m just thinking it doesn’t get much cuter (except those two girls running into the ocean with their floaties!)  Click through for the second part of the post- exercises to work that upper body!  Hope you love!  xx- Sarah    {Photos: Lou Mora}

Happy Friday my friends!  For those of you celebrating a long weekend- horray!  I hope you’ve got some fun on the books!  We’re in the middle of house projects (we may never again NOT be in the middle of house projects, I’ve come to realize).  Good thing we like  good project!  HA!  But we’ve also got some time with friends and some other fun ahead.  Lastly, I just want to thank you.  Thank you for showing up here and reading.  Or just looking… I know that there are those of you who just look at the photos and bounce- I’m grateful for you too.  And below, some links I rounded up for your weekend entertainment.  I love them, I hope you will too!  xx- Sarah {image via}

May Grey Survival Wear

a_house_in_the_hills_joie_romper_lulu_frost_pin-4

The most effortless outfits are always my favorite.  Case in point- this romper.  It’s a throw-on piece, it’ll always work and can be dressed up or down. Layered with a jacket it’s my go-to for these May grey days we’re having where it starts out gloomy and cold but mid morning turns into a perfectly sunny beautiful day! And the Lulu Frost traveler pin (which happens to be my new favorite accessory) adds the perfect little pop to the waistband, don’t you think?  Happy styling my friends!  See you mañana.  xx- Sarah

Quinoa, Mint and Stone Fruit Salad

a_house_in_the_hills_quinoa_stone_fruit_salad-8

Stone fruits are coming into season, hallelujah!  Cherries are my favorite of all of them- and since they’re so expensive and in season for such a short time they’re like juicy, extra-coveted little gems to me!  The amount of flavor in each one reminds me how magical this world is- how incredible it is that the earth provides us with such a vast amount of things to eat, taste, enjoy. We’re lucky ones!

This salad is a mixture of farmer’s market finds- apricots, cherries, heaps of mint, sheep’s milk feta, quinoa and pistachios.  So much flavor, so light and perfect for Spring, so beautiful to look at.  Magical indeed.  Recipe below, I hope you love!   xx- Sarah

Tommy Bahama & Self Magazine #2

Hey friends!  I’m back again with more Tommy Bahama/SELF goodness!  Is this romper not the cutest?!  And so, so comfortable- I can’t help but wish everything I put on was this easy breezy!  As promised I’m providing a full body workout in these four posts we’re producing, so after the jump you’ll find today’s portion- and it’s all about the ABS!  Having a strong core is so important with stand up paddle boarding, so I’ve been working mine like crazy to get in shape.  I figure the stronger I am, the longer I can be out on the water having fun and getting in what I consider to be a sneaky workout (one that doesn’t feel like it)!   Click through for the rest and work out those abs with me!!!  (Here is last week’s post, in case you’re interested!)  xx- Sarah   {Photos: Lou Mora}
