welcome back sun

January 12, 2016

After a full week of rain and gloom, the sun is welcomed back with open arms. I pull open all the curtains and let the lovely sun stream in. Let’s be real, it’s California, and the sun is welcome here anytime, and we really did need all that rain, but it’s nice to have variety in our weather. I love the rain and grey, but I also love the sun and blue skies.

I want to take the girls on some sort of outdoor adventure this week, but I haven’t figured out what yet. Maybe explore a new park, go on a hiking trail, or just have a picnic. I don’t let them adventure outside as much as I should, and that’s something I want to do more of this year.

When I put on this skirt, Soul said, “Oh that is so pretty! I love all the colors! Can you save it for me when I grow up?” She’s the one that is first to call dibs on things in my closet; Soul is definitely my little fashionista. It’s fun to get dressed up after living in pajamas for a week; it’s been so (California) cold that pajamas is all I have wanted to wear. I don’t know how you folks who deal with snow all winter long manage to do it, I think I’d be in pajamas forever.

on me: top, everlane. skirt, thrifted. shoes, rachel comey via eBay. bag, handmade (see it here).

    You have such a great sense of style! Also, Everlane teeshirts really are a much better quality. i got a couple as well as a cashmere sweater when you first mentioned the brand and they are all still looking like new. thanks for the tip! And yes, grey , colder weather really helps appreciate sunny warm weather:)

      Yes, they are my favorite tees! They hold up to repeated wear and washing well. Did you know they have kids now too? I wanna try out a couple basics for the girls.

    Hi Ruby,

    I was just wondering what size you usually get for Everlane tshirts. I have been wanting to place an order and love how they fit on you!

      I usually get an XS, but I do have a couple tees in small. I’d say the XS is my go-to size.
