We just spent a fun winter-y weekend in Big Bear with friends. All last week the forecast called for lots of snow so we frantically pulled out our warmest clothes and even ordered chains for the car. Well mother nature had slightly different plans. While it wasn’t quite blizzard conditions we arrived to a teeny bit of snow and got about an inch Saturday night. Just enough to make a bunch of Orange County kids happy… and not too much that we froze.
Last week winter decided to make an appearance in Southern California, and it had been so long I’d forgotten what it was like to be cold! Out came the jackets, coats and sweaters as I tried to be as layered as possible. I had back-to-back brunches mid-week, so it was fun to get a little more dressed up than I normally do. But I’m back to basics this week as I catch up on work and prepare for a fun weekend away.
Happy Tuesday! We’re having a blast of winter weather this week, but over the weekend it was warm and amazing and I was able to wear this fun new spring top. I love the floral print and ruffle detailing and it’s currently on sale! I’m hoping this cold weather doesn’t last long because I’ve started shopping for spring and I can’t wait to wear more of my new things!
A few weeks ago it was cold and cloudy and even rained once or twice. I was going a little stir crazy after being inside with a baby all week so we decided to head out on an adventure. We drove up the coast a ways and discovered some nearby beach towns we’d never really visited before. And even though it was cold and felt like our one week of winter, it was such a fun day.
A few weeks ago I went on a little spring shopping trip after a closet purge and came home with this top. I try to clean out my closet every other month or so… it’s so necessary with the amount of clothing I accumulate. Anyway, I noticed I was lacking some fun springy things and loved everything about this top. The colors are perfect for spring/summer/even winter in Southern California and I love the tie detail. I plan on wearing it again this week with my new “mom jeans.”
