Golden Hour

loccitane 1loccitane 2loccitane 5loccitane 4loccitane 3 Chasing sunsets in Tiburon at the good ol’ hippie swing and taking advantage of this beautiful Springtime light too! I recently received a bottle of L’Occitane’s newest fragrance collection, Terre de Lumiere. It is exactly how I love my perfume to be: delicate and low-key with a hint of citrus – and yet somehow it’s warm and sensual at the same time. It’s lovely.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you’re having a good week!

Springtime Workwear

vince-trouser-1vince-trouser-2vince-trouser-3 Time for a Springtime work wardrobe update! My classics are always on rotation, but adding just a few new pieces in the season’s freshest colors and shapes make it feel like I have a whole new wardrobe. Some of my favorites for the season include:

  • The Pant: if you’re up for the looser, relaxed shape this season, the ones I’m wearing here from Nordstrom are a favorite. If not, I would go for a pair in a color that yells “Spring!” and I think these are just the ticket
  • The Investment piece: if there were one coat I would invest in, and subsequently wear non-stop all season, it would be this silk trench. It’s elegant, work-appropriate and still very modern and “now.”
  • The Workhorse: the one item that I will wear constantly is a silk blouse. My favorites are in the $200-price range, but in terms of cost per wear it always becomes one of the best buys of the year for me. This one is an essential.
  • The Trend item: at $55 this trendy blouse with statement sleeves is a steal.
  • The Flat: I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect springtime loafer myself, at $120 here.

What’s on your Spring wishlist?

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a wonderful start to your week!
