Rob and I took a day last weekend to get to Santa Cruz to enjoy the sunshine and we picked the most perfect day to do so. It was a gorgeous day with a tasty lunch followed by a dynamic sunset. I know I may be a bit sunset obsessed but the colors always captivate me. How can you not find enjoyment from this view?! We soaked it all in at Steamer Lane.
I’ve always loved the ocean. The sound, the sight, and just the pure peacefulness.

Am I the only sunset junkie out there?

I’m a big fan of simple and don’t like to wear anything too loud. However, I am a huge fan of colors so I’m always playing with ways to add a little bit of color. I love the lounge bras from Victoria Secret’s Pink! section for fun comfy pieces. At the end of each season, they usually clearance out everything from the season ending which is where I swoop up some good stuff.
Another way I like to add to a simple black, white, or grey outfit is to add a fun lipstick. I love love love this NARS lip color Angela that I’m wearing above. It’s a cooler hue and lasts for hours.
How do you add color to your basics?

Recently during my trip to San Luis Obispo I made a pit stop at the famous Madonna Inn. It’s tacky, lavish, pink, and AWESOME! It was like I stepped into Dolly Parton’s closet, I didn’t expect to see all of the glitz that I did!
(The entire building is covered in stone and everything is embellished, check out the front doors)
(Pink, pink, pink! The bar has the cutest swirly chairs)
(A giant floral arrangement stood from the center of the restaurant, where all things pink of coursed lived)
(The staircase was covered in bright floral carpet. LOVE)
(And of course nothing but pink roses)
It’s like a little piece of Vegas in the middle of San Luis Obispo! I am starting to learn more about the place and why it is the way it is, but I think it’s pretty cool!
With this beautiful coming weather, also comes some beautiful full blooms. My landlord has a fantastic green thumb and the backyard is always looking full of life and color. The gardens looked so beautiful the other day, I took some time to go out there and shoot some photos of all the beautiful flowers she has planted. It doesn’t hurt to have such beautiful views right out your window first thing in the morning 🙂
(I LOVE iris’s – these ones are huge and vibrant right now)
Some TLC to a garden can really bring it to life. I’m not sure how exactly she maintains these gorgeous flowers but they look magnificent. Happy Friday!

Spring is on it’s way and with the arrival comes pastel in our closets! I am super excited about this trend because my favorite shades of colors are always light, I think it looks better with my pale skin. See this simple look we put together, I wore something very similar to work the other day!
(Shirt- Forever 21, Purse- Urban Outfitters, Earrings- Forever 21)
(Snap detail, I love this alternative to buttons!)
(These earrings are flashy in an understated way- the light blue color tones it down)
(Shoes- Franco Sarto. These are so comfy and soft, I love the feel of these kitten heels)
This look is simple and easy to pull off, just don’t be afraid to mix your colors!

I can’t explain my fascination with comparing things to crack. It just seems like people use the term crack when talking about very addicting things and you know, sprinkles are very addicting to me. Therefore I present, Sprinkle Crack! You may remember these pretty sprinkles that I used in this recent post when making Cake in a Cup. They have resurfaced in creating special lattes/coffees! This is just to add a little more happy to your day.
(It’s these beautiful crystalized, sprinkles again. You can use them for so many great things)
(Just add them to the top of your frothed milk. I have this little handheld frother that works great or when at my parents’, they have a milk steamer which is heaven!)
(To enjoy it even more, I throw on some heart glasses and drink that bad boy down. Instant motivation to have an over the top fabulous day. With Valentine’s Day coming up, you just become more festive. Who would’ve thought that all it takes is some sprinkles and some fabulous shades?!)
I can’t even begin to explain the joy coffee brings to me so just adding a little extra sprinkle to my day, really starts things off right. And hey, why not pass the joy on?? When making a latte or coffee for a friend, surprise them by adding a few pretty sprinkles to their cup. You will have a bestie for life!
