Resolutions

Morgan Quinn

This blog is dedicated to one of the many resolutions I have for 2016. Keep in mind I'm not too
serious about New Years resolutions only because I don't think you should wait till January to be  disciplined or start something you've always wanted to start. So all of mine are more silly and easy going. 

I was shuffling through some old photos and found a few of me from when I was probably three looking fabulous as ever. Amazing dresses, big hats, heels. As a dancer and yogi I usually
spend my life in yoga pants and sports bras, (which I love) but it would be nice to throw on some stylish clothes and feel like my fabulous three old self a few times a week. Now obviously my mom was responsible for my chic style back then but seeing these photos made me realize how fun it is to dress up.

I love a good vintage 20s or 70s look. Both great times for fashion. Twenties you had beautiful knee length dresses that were embroidered or dripping with jewels with sleek hair. Seventies you have a very tailored look. Maybe an amazing blouse with the perfect fitting flowing pant and luscious hair. 

Comment below and tell me your favorite things to wear, and what era of fashion you love.

A Spring Day in the Country

Sasha De Sola

Anyone who knows me well knows that one of my favorite pastimes is visiting gorgeous gardens and estates. One of my favorites is just about forty minutes south of San Francisco in Woodside, California. Nestled on the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz mountains, the Filoli estate and gardens is on the National Register of Historic Places and is open to the public. I spent a lovely afternoon there last weekend and it was such a nice way to unwind and bask in the warmth of the sun. Its all about the simple pleasures, right?!?

 The entry to the home is surrounded by large trees and lush greenery. Chirping birds create quite the atmosphere!

 Built between 1915 and 1917, Filoli still boasts classic elegance and an incredible vintage feel. The kitchen is even armed with a walk-in safe!

 However, my absolute favorite part about Filoli is definitely the gardens that are currently in bloom!

Im so grateful to live in an area where it is so easy to escape the city and find an oasis amongst the trees. Im
 looking forward to my next adventure!
