Light Wash

27 February

Despite the fact that it was raining all day yesterday (hurrah–we need it!), I’ve had spring on the mind as of late and have really been into lighter wash denim. I’m now finally back in Sacramento after a fun-filled family weekend in Arizona followed by a day of meetings in San Francisco, and it feels good to be home. I picked up these pink ranunculas (at Cheese Plus–my old neighborhood go-to) as I headed out of the city because I really haven’t found a great flower shop in Sac yet. Any recs? Maybe I need to open my ownJust putting it out there… I mean, someone needs to get on that. Wink, wink.


Wearing:  Genetic Denim Jacket (on sale).  Pomandére Top.  Current/Elliott Jeans.  Vince Sweater.  Iro Sandals (also loving).  Milly Purse.

PS: So happy to hear so many of you enjoyed my five blogging lessons! And also, since I’ve received lots of emails re: having CITNB show up in your readers… please take the time to update it to: (the www. was dropped with the move to WordPress and that seems to be the problem). Let me know if that works, and thank you so much for continuing to follow along!

    Can you share with us where to get nice breton tops? It seems really hard to find! I mean there are few nice breton sweaters, but I just need a medium thick, cotton shirt. The one that you are rocking is beautiful!

    Gorgeous blooms! And stripes + denim always makes for a fab combo! xx

  22. @Tina ~ this one I bought at a boutique in San Francisco — the brand is Pomandére. It’s not thick though, it’s super soft and thin. I would try Saint James if you’re looking for something thicker.
