White on White in Venice


Hi my friends, happy Monday!  We’ve been in LA since last Wednesday and I’ve already worn this outfit twice- which is basically a miracle because WHITE!!!!  And me, the clumsiest eater known to mankind + all of the incredible food in this town- you’d figure it’d be a stained mess by now.  BUT IT ISN’T!!!!  The clothing Gods are smiling down on me, they must be!!!  On top of all of that goodness, this outfit has all sorts of my new favorites- these shoes, that hat, that tank. They’ll be in heavy rotation so expect to see more of all of them, I’ll be styling them every which way I can.  More soon!  xx- Sarah   {Shop this Outfit:  jeans, tank, shoes, bralette (Cheap Monday- sold out), hat, bag, necklace, bracelets }

Seriously, Endless Summer


Summer has no intentions of going ANYWHERE here in southern Ca.  I’ve become convinced that I’ll be tan in January this year.  Not the worst thing!!!  It means I get to stretch out my days of eating tons of fruit, wearing mini dresses, and spending lazy afternoons at the beach.  We arrived home yesterday and are headed out today to LA for a week!  After weeks in the mountains we’re looking forward to a good dose of urban.  And restaurants!!!!  I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this little get up at least once, possibly twice.  How cute is this dress?!  It’s so flattering, comfortable and cute- plus I’ll be able to style it so many ways.  Super happy with this find!  And Shopbop is having their friends + family sale (25% off EVERYTHING, even sale items!!)  It’s my favorite time for shopping for staples, splurge pieces and things I’ve been coveting but haven’t pulled the trigger on.  I’ve rounded up a bunch of my favorites below if you’re looking for a sale steal!  Ok, more soon!!!!  xx- Sarah

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

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
