Winter Coat Hunting

Vince_leather_trimmed_jacket_A_House_in_the_Hills-1

I finally found the perfect winter coat!  Since we decided to move back to SanDiego I’ve known that I’m going to need to step up my winter game and get a few pieces to keep me cozy.  And first on the list was a lightweight winter jacket.  I hunted and stalked and finally landed on this Vince number.  I love it so much!  I can dress it up or down, the color is beautiful, it’s not bulky (my pet peeve about winter clothes) and it’s so soft + cozy!  Thank you Vince, well done!!!  xx- Sarah

Style Round Up – Black on Black

12587019264_831ed3570d_o

I’ve got a thing for wearing all one color.  And by thing I mean deep burning love.  I don’t know if it’s the simplicity of it, or the ease in getting dressed, or if the appeal is really just that it almost never fails! Whatever it is, I don’t care.  I’m going to continue to embrace monochrome until my very last day, I know it.  Viva all black everything!  And, in case you’re in the mood for some dangerous shopping, Shopbop is having one of their epic sales- 25% off sitewide with the code FAMILY25!  I’ve already gotten myself into a little bit of trouble.  My favorite kind of trouble.  Have at it!   xx- Sarah {more and sources after the jump}

All About Neutrals

sarah_yates_a_house_in_the_hills_meli_mello_-1

We’re almost to the weekend!  It feels like a really big deal this week, doesn’t it?!  We’re in the middle of rental house hunting- with the clock ticking down the minutes until we have to move, so we’re feeling the pressure.  I wish we could just fast forward to mid-November, this is stresssful!  But, all of that aside, can we talk about this bag?  It’s my new go-to daytime bag and I’m loving the quality, versatility and that color!  It’s making everything better, at least for moments at a time.  And that’s also a really big deal right now.  Cheers to that!  xx- Sarah

Shop this outfit:  jeans: Citizens of Humanity, jacket: Shakuhachi, bag: Meli Melo (also love it in this color), shoes: Zara (similar), sunnies: Karen Walker

Oh Hey Meow, Fall!

equipment_aubrey__dress_A_house_in_the_hills-1

FALL IS HAPPENING!  Sometimes it feels like there will never be any other season here in Palm Springs except HEAT WAVE, so this is a big deal for me.  We had our windows open all weekend (!!!!!!).  I actually felt cold at a few different points, this is a really big deal!  So, the best way I celebrate- BOOTS!  Yes, paired with dress because I don’t need a coat just yet still, but this is still major!  And I love them, want to marry them, am considering a move to Chicago just so I can wear them more.  All totally normal.  xx- Sarah

Freelance Style

nine_west_A_House_in_the_Hills-6

One of my favorite things about my work life is that every day is different- I’ve quickly learned to expect the unexpected!  Being a freelance creative was always my dream- I was never good at sitting in one place for too long and felt like a fish out of water with 9-5 hours.  So of course my closet reflects all of this!  I may wear casual clothes for a day in the office/errand running one day, style an appropriately creative/professional look for meetings the next, and then get dolled up for an evening event after that.  I love it- variety is the spice of my life!  Today I’m partnering with Nine West to share 3 looks to inspire your creative-work life!  I hope you love!  xx- Sarah  {click through for more of each look and shopping details!}

Ted Baker #PinpoinTED

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m excited to tell you about a fun contest that Ted Baker is hosting called #PinpoinTED.  How it works: you create a Pinterest board for a friend, name it “PinpoinTED for {friend’s name}”, Pin to it from Ted Baker’s pinpoinTed boards, and then submit it here for a chance for you AND your friend to win $800 to shop at Ted Baker!  Brilliant, right?!  How much would your friend who you created the board love you if you won for them!  I think it definitely warrants a batch of thank- you cookies, at the very least!  The only hard part in all of this would be choosing what to buy, there’s so much goodness in stock right now! Good luck my friends!  xx- Sarah
