Winter Whites


Happy Monday my friends, hope you had a great weekend!  I was going through this slideshow on Harper’s Bazaar last night and stopped dead in my interwebbing tracks when I saw this look.  How incredibly chic and lovely, isn’t it?!  It also reminded me that my favorite season to wear white is just around the corner, and I want to make sure my winter white game is on point this year.   And that sent me tumbling down the online shopping rabbit holes in search of my favorite white pieces.  I’m sharing them below, saving you some reasearch time in case you too love winter whites and wanna spruce up the old wardrobe before all piggy bank money gets set aside for holiday presents!!  (I’m thinking ahead- that time is also creeping right up on us!!!)  Happy shopping!!  xx- Sarah

Grilled Veggies with Pan Fried Chickpeas and Chimichurri


These are my favorite kind of meals to eat as we adventure around California- colorful, healthy, easy to throw together and so, so delicious!  And all of these veggies messily piled on top of each other and then topped with the chickpeas and chimichurri- it makes for a fun casual dinner!  I’m starting to get more comfortable with the grill and am even preferring it over our stove (and for those of you not camping- a grill pan in your kitchen would cook up this feast just as nicely, as would any backyard bbq).  You could also swap out any of these veggies for those you prefer more- I’m certain there isn’t a vegetable that doesn’t taste amazing grilled and then topped with chimichurri.  Recipe below…hope you love!  Have a great weekend my friends!  xx- Sarah

Lake Tahoe Adventures!


Hi friends!  Sorry for the radio silence yesterday, we arrived in Yosemite and haven’t had much luck on finding cell reception- which is to be expected (and embraced!) of course.  It’s beautiful here, I’ll share more on that later.  But for now, photos from our time in Tahoe!  I’m sharing too many photos and details on our adventures for those of you who are planning a trip (and for those of you who are living vicariously…)  It’s an incredible place with so much to do and see, I know we’ll head back there again.  Hope you love!!!  xx- Sarah

Be Wild and Free


One of the things I love about our life on the road is that it requires us to simplify in major ways.  My closet in the RV is 18″.  I have a couple of small cubbies besides for the closet that I can store clothes in.  So it requires me to be highly selective in my packing, and to create a sort of capsule wardrobe for the road.  And there’s something beautiful about having so little to choose from- and something fun about mixing and matching every which way I can.  In this situation I find that simple pieces, paired with a few choice accessories, allows me to feel effortlessly well-styled.  And these black jeans are getting ALL of the wear.  We’re off to Yosemite today, but here are a few snaps from Tahoe (I have a backlog of Tahoe snaps to share, so look forward to more soon and another recipe post as well!!) Until then….xx- Sarah  {photos: Lou Mora}

Fig and Cheddar Grilled Cheese


Hello my friends, happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Our was pretty magical-  hopefully you’ve been following along on my Instagram where I’m sharing all the incredible things we’re seeing!    We’re still in Tahoe- I don’t want to leave!  Saturday we hiked Rubicon trail- and since our RV is too long to be allowed in the park and we had to walk in to the trailhead, it ended up being a 17 mile hike.  I’ve never walked that far before- my legs ached and there were moments when I was so walk-weary that I thought I might rather sleep in the forest than take another step. Which made for an ENORMOUS sense of accomplishment when we made it back to our home on wheels!

All of that brings me to this meal- a fig and cheddar grilled cheese with a simple green salad. AKA the best thing I’ve eaten in weeks.  Food tastes great when eaten outdoors and even better when your legs feel like they’re going to fall off, apparently.  HA!  But seriously, if you haven’t cooked a grilled cheese on an actual grill (this was my first time) DO IT!  Do it now.  Figs are going out of season, so snap them up and make this sandwich, I promise you’ll love it.  Until tomorrow…. xx- Sarah  PS- yes that is me wrapping chocolate in roasted marshmallows with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen.  I’m quite happy here on the road, in the forest, beside campfires, and most especially when eating grilled cheese and marshmallows.  Life if good.

Lake Tahoe Style


Hi my friends, happy Friyay!!!!!  Our woodsy adventures are continuing in Lake Tahoe- it’s insanely beautiful up here!  I’ll share photos of the landscape soon- we’re wandering around taking a million photos today.  In the meantime, a quick style post for you.  I think I mentioned it before but I’m the nerd who wears plaid camping- always.  And I snagged this warm jacket since I own almost no winter clothes after years of living in the desert.  I’m having fun getting bundled up for the cold- we woke up to 40 degrees today!  Brrrrrrr!!!!  The dogs couldn’t wait to jump in our bed this am!  Hoping it’ll reach 68 by the afternoon so we can get out on a stand up paddleboard.  fingers crossed!   Have a great weekend, more soon…. xx- Sarah
