Lavender Skies

Now that spring is officially here and temperatures are beginning to climb, opportunities to wear my winter wardrobe are quickly diminishing. Before it gets too warm, I decided to take my corduroys out for a spin. I love these pants! Their lavender color is ideal for early spring. Making them the center piece of this look. Flowers don’t have a monopoly on this lavish hue!  Continue reading

The Outback

I know we still have a few weeks until the spring equinox, but I don’t think anyone told Northern California that. We’re seeing cherry blossoms in bloom, beautiful blue skies, and temperatures in the 70’s. And I am LOVING it! Today was so gorgeous I couldn’t help baring a little extra skin for the sun to kiss. 🙂   Continue reading

An Olive Branch

Olive skirt, striped shirtOne of the best things about my neighborhood is that it’s less than a mile from a farming community. Strolling down country roads flanked with green pastures is becoming my greatest escape. Whenever I need a break from the hustle and bustle of the capital city, I go where cows, sheep, goats, horses, chicken, and even turkeys are more plentiful than people. It’s this modern day Noah’s Ark that inspired me to wear a muted olive skirt today.

With Super Bowl XLIX right around the corner it’s time to start planning parties, deciding on hors d’oeuvres, and of course, figuring out what to wear! 🙂  Many of my friends are huge American football fans. Every year we all get together to watch the big game. Even though I’m a much bigger basketball fan than football fan, I still want to look the part.

The Struggle

white dress, green jacketA few years ago I saw a movie called Office Space. In this satirical comedy about the work-life of a typical mid-’90’s American software company, a few characters mention something called “a case of the Mondays.” I’d never heard that term before, but when returning to work, after two weeks off, I was struggling with a serious case of the Mondays. Determined to not bring that humdrum attitude into the rest of my week, today I decided to fight back. Continue reading

The Breakfast Club

Oatmeal full body

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. And now that we’re seeing some pretty cool temperatures in Northern California I can indulge in hot cereals like malt-o-meal, grits, and oatmeal porridge.

It’s this type of morning comfort food that inspired me to wear my oatmeal colored V-neck sweater today. This winter essential is the fashion equivalent to a warm bowl of oatmeal. It’s super soft, comfy, and cozy. Continue reading

Cali Girls Wear Chucks

chucksIn 1908 Converse were the new kicks on the block. Only 9 years later, the company introduced the most successful selling basketball shoe in history, the Converse All-Stars. But it wasn’t until 1932 that these classic shoes adorned the name and signature of former basketball player Charles “Chuck” Taylor.  Since then, I don’t think a decade has gone by without Chucks making their mark on American history. Like in 1962 when basketball player Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a game against the New York Knicks while wearing a pair of Chuck Taylors. Or when the character, Sho’nuff from the movie The Last Dragon (1985) says his infamous line, “Kiss my Converse.” And as we quickly approach 2015, Chuck Taylors continues to be a shoe of choice.  Continue reading

Holiday Cheer

plaid skirt With a last name like Frost it’s no wonder I’m all about the Christmas season. I love the time spent with family, the sparking lights, and the jello and rompope! And now that December is well underway, it’s holiday cheer that inspired today’s Claus worthy outfit. This festive red pencil skirt is ideal for winter holidays. It’s midi length adds warmth without looking like a bulky winter piece. Continue reading
