This weekend we plan to take full advantage and hit up a few beach spots. Since it's Mother's Day and Jack's mom is coming into town, we have a few seaside dinners/lunches/brunches planned. I hate living far away from my Mom on Mother's Day but we have a little surprise for her up our sleeves (No Mom, we are not making a surprise trip out there, but hopefully you will know we are thinking of you!)
Seaside brunching is one of my favorite things. It's peaceful and calm and a great time to just take a deep breath and appreciate the natural scenery - with good food of course! It's also a great time to wear some of my favorite beachy pieces from my closet. It's still a little chilly here in SD and not yet warm enough for summer dresses but it's the perfect time to rock the white jeans, raffia sandals (I have a long term love affair with raffia platforms) and my new summery favorite - the linen sweater. Linen sweaters are lightweight and airy - perfect for this time of year. I highly recommend you pick one up...Nordstrom has some great ones; as does Banana Republic.
Featured items: Theory Linen Sweater (yellow featured here), Kate Spade Triple Row Necklace, Rachel Zoe Belted Leather Tote, Hudson Bootcut Jeans, Hive & Honey Belt, Rose Gold Gucci Sunnies, Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch, & Ralph Lauren Raffia Wedges.
Notice, the pops of rose gold and yellow... San Diego has what's known as "May Gray" and "June Gloom" so colors & shiny metals help brighten everything up a bit!
