Say You Won’t Let Go — James Arthur
The weather is finally starting to warm up in San Francisco, so I’ve got all of my favorite Spring items at the ready. From a sleeveless turtleneck for those slightly chillier days to pastel pink ballet flats, here’s what I’ll be sporting this season.
P.S. Check out what I was wearing last Spring here.
The past couple of years, I’ve gone all out and hosted my birthday at my home (see my tea party and picnic), but this year I decided to do things differently. While I love entertaining, there’s no denying that it is a ton of work and I wanted to take things a little easier this year. The best part? Even though I didn’t go all out and host a fête at home, I still had one of the best birthdays ever.
Since my actual birthday fell on a Wednesday, my boyfriend and I celebrated it by going to dinner at the stunning Tartine Manufactory. This place was everything I could have asked for and more. I mean, just look at the photos!
That Friday, we took the day off work, packed the car, and headed to Napa County. While we had originally planned to spend the entire day in Yountville–a quaint little town in the North Bay–we ended up making our way to St. Helena and Calistoga, too. Just driving from town to town is breathtaking, let alone walking around each neighborhood and breathing in the fresh, warm air. Needless to say, it was a really good day.
I ended my birthday weekend with a brunch at Serpentine, surrounded by my closest friends. It was such a lovely morning filled with lots of mimosas, conversation, and celebration.
Getting my house in the Spring spirit is probably one of my favorite things to do because it signals the longer, warmer days just around the corner. As soon as April kicks into gear, I know it’s time to bust out all of my colorful vases, flowers, and accessories. Here’s exactly what I did to welcome the season:
Moved these beautiful vases from our bookshelf onto the coffee table.
Similarly brought out this beautiful chair from our bedroom corner.
Colorful and sweet candies at the ready.
