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}

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

Happy Thursday my friends!  As I mentioned before, we’re on the road again (horray!).  This time we’re exploring Lake Tahoe.  The drive up here was amazing, California never ceases to amaze me with it’s vastness, variety of landscapes and beauty.  I’m just in love.  We pulled over at this one spot on highway 395 and did an impromptu mini shoot.  This hat has been my saving grace as I haven’t washed my hair since we left (although a dip in the lake yesterday kind of counts, right?!)  I have to say, this RV was the best thing we have ever, EVER purchased.  I’m loving life on the road so, so much. Having our furry family with us, a kitchen and bathroom make roadtrips just a dream.  Today it’s rainng and we’re cozied up at our campsite listening to it hit the roof and on the lookout for bears.  It might be heaven.  More soon…. xx- Sarah

Stripes For Life


Hey friends, happy Monday!!!  We spent the better part of last week in Big Sur, which is now at the top of my favorites list.  It’s insane pretty.  Like: make-you-believe-in-a- higher-power beautiful.  I can’t wait to share the photos with you soon!  In the meantime, today’s style post featuring camping-wear, which will quickly turn into weekend wear after this silly heat wave dies down!  I love cozy comfortable outfits like this one, perfect for lounging around and eating my body weight in s’mores!!! More soon! xx- Sarah   (Shop this outfit: pants, shirt, sneakers)


Central Coast Wanderings in Reformation

Have you been to San Simeon?  Just up the coast a bit from Pismo Beach, it’s incredible.  The coastline reminds me of Northern California- beautiful cliffs that run right up against the coastline.  So many enormous trees, kelp swirling in the water, rocks jutting out of the sea, seals and whales popping up for air- it’s just glorious.  There is so much magic in California, I swear it’s a version of heaven.

Also, this dress from Reformation.  I snagged it a couple of months ago and I’ve worn it so much that I’m considering grabbing it in another color.   And lastly, matte black nails- thanks to this genius.  They’re how I’m embracing Fall even if Fall isn’t embracing California.  xx- Sarah {Shop this outfit: dress, shoes (DVF Spring 2015), hat, bracelets: here and here}

Stripes and Plaid


We’re currently enjoying Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo, which are both AMAZING!!!  The coastline up here, which is new to me, is seriously breathtaking.  If I wasn’t in a committed relationship with San Diego I would totally consider calling this area home!  I’ll share more from our trip soon, but in the meantime- a style post.  These are the kind of outfits I’m loving for traveling- and these overalls are my jam.  It’s a little campy (no pun intended) to be wearing them while camping, but I can’t help myself.  I’m a sucker for high waisted anything.  And plaid.  And stripes.  I’m basicallly just a sucker.  Ha!  More soon…. xx- Sarah
