Shoes and Bags and Skirts Oh My!

IRO_sandals_A_House_in_the_hills-4966

Happy Monday friends, I hope you had a great weekend!  Today’s outfit is really just an excuse to wear two things in my closet that I’ve been dying to get out for a spin- these IRO sandals that I stalked like a panther in the night until they went on crazy sale a couple of months ago (fear not my shoe lovers, I’ve also stalked these IRO beauts and they’re also on crazy sale and just as great!) and this bag that I have been dying over and wearing non-stop since it arrived.  There’s nothing I love more in my closet that bags and shoes.  They speak my language, they perk me up, they turn my outfits into things I want to dance in.  That’s somethin.  Just like this skirt.  Until tomorrow…. xx- Sarah

High Waisted For Ever

Mother_Denim_A_House_in_the_Hills-65

I actually think I might start making high-waisted a denim closet requirement.  Would that be weird of me, to only wear jeans that hit at least an inch above my belly button?  It’s just that I find them so flattering.  And leg-amplifying.  If that’s a thing?  It is a thing, it must be!  Anyway, I posted these a couple of weeks ago on my Spring wishlist, and then I manifested them straight on into my closet.  #noregrets  They’re amazing.  I’ll have to pack them away for the weekend though because it’s supposed to be NINETY DEGREES!  What the actual —-????  I’m sorry if you live somewhere cold and that sounds lovely and I’m being a jerk.  But we moved off the surface of the sun for a little coastal breezy Southern, CA winter and this 90° business is just not what we signed up for!  Someone, please anyone, invite me to your woodsy cabin where the snow is just starting to melt and little flowers are trying to find their way out of the ground so I can remember what Spring is like….  xx- Sarah

A Little of This, a Little of That

joie_blouse_chloe_booties_A_House_in_the_Hills-59

How pretty are the details of this Joie blouse?!  And the color, I just can’t get enough of blushes and nudes, as you well know.  (FYI Joie is having their friends and family sale, 25% off -details here)  I love pairing silky, feminine tops with boots that have a little sass.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my girly-to-the-max moments too, but lately I’ve just been feeling a bit more… well, I guess just mix and match-y.  It’s Friday my pals, I’m wishing you all an amazing weekend filled with goodness!  xx- Sarah

A Bohemian Inspired Moment

Free_people_Dress_A_House_in_the_Hills-70

I bought this dress (on sale!) to wear to my future God-son’s baptism in Mexico.  I really wanted to buy  this dress, and this dress but then I remembered who I am- ME, and whose bank account I do not have- OPRAH’S.  So, here it is!  The dress I chose instead.  I’ll dress it up for the baptism with heels and more sophisticated accessories, but in the meantime I’m wearing it like crazy with over the knee boots and sometimes with these booties (also sold here).  I’m mildly obsessed with it, and at that sale price it’s just such a steal.  Okee, that’s all for now!   Have a great day my friends!  xx- Sarah

Spring Wish List

classic_staples_a_house_in_the_hills_2015

Happy Monday my friends!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I rounded up some pieces that are currently sitting atop my wishlist, taunting me to ADD TO CART!  It makes me feel better about not being able to, to see them here like this.  I also think maybe it’ll help me manifest them into my closet!?  And in the spirit of that, I have a whole wishlist carousel below.  {insert wide-eyed serious emoji face here}  Someone please buy all the pretty things I’m coveting at the moment, please!!!  xx- Sarah 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Pleats and Over the Knee Boots

a_house_in_the_hills_turmeric_chloe_marcie_tote_-8979

Well, I never made it out of pajamas on Tuesday.  I spent the whole day unpacking and got swept away by the wonders of a walk in closet!  I’ve never had a walk-in closet, so this magic is new to me.  But O.M.G!  I want to just live in it.  Seeing all of my clothes hung as if it’s a little boutique- it was a Pretty Woman moment.  Except I’m not a prostitute and Richard Gere wasn’t there, and no one told me I was in the wrong store.  But you know what I mean.  Holy bananas it’s a beautiful thing, a closet that you can walk into!

And if that wasn’t glorious enough, I got dressed yesterday!  It might be sad that I feel accomplished when I take pajamas off these days, or it might just be that I’m getting good at celebrating small victories.  Like this one.  This is pretty much the uniform I’ll be wearing until Summer hits.  Dresses and skirts with over the knee boots and a jacket- that’s my game.  And this blue dress is gonna see a lot of wear (it’s on major sale if you love it as much as I do!).  I’ll also wear it with these booties  when it gets a little warmer.  Oh warm summer, I’m looking forward to you! Ok, signing off now.  Have a great Thursday my friends!  xx- Sarah
