Well, I never thought I would be one for a casual California look. Sincerely Jules, Aimee Song, Rumi Neely all put their own spin on it and made it look so effortless and COOL if you will. I was always the more is more kinda girl --- print on print, layer until you can't layer anymore and always adding just one more accessory before I head out the door vs. taking one off. So it's more of a surprise to me than you, dear reader, that in the last 10 years I actually like this laid back California cool style more than I thought. I guess Silicon Valley finally influenced me, I never thought it possible to influence the local, but here we are. I digress, it's cool, I'm into it. 

Here is my take on that effortless Cali cool, bohemian chic whatever-you-want-to-call-it-style. Throw on an easy don't-need-to-think-about-it backless dress with a statement albeit classic fedora, some white sneaks, and a ton of gold jewelry like this gorge chunky ring, we're talking more is truly more here, and viola, Cali cool accomplished. While the dress isn't the most flattering, I accidentally grabbed the wrong size, I think it could be super cute if you bought it in the right size, anyone a 0? The last one in a size 0 and on major sale, right this way!

There are not a lot of things you can do on the weekend like you used to be able to when you didn't have a 4-month-old. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, it's just a totally different life. This look was shot several months ago (facepalm!) when we were adventurous enough to visit the De Young Museum with Lucia. Back then she slept a lot more so she literally came in and out without a peep, so to speak. Granted we only saw two exhibits but for this new-ish mom, it was a lovely outing none the less. 

I've always been an introvert who enjoys extrovert activities. Spending the weekend at home was never me, I love to be outside -- running outdoors, perusing a new neighborhood or doing rounds in my own with Lucia strapped to me in her baby backpack, of course. It was no wonder the week after giving birth I invited my friend Julie to an event at the Museum of Ice Cream. While it seems more natural for me to be out and about I think it could also have a lot to do with reclaiming my freedom post-Lucia. Finding my groove as a woman and as a new mother, still making time for me while caring for my family. For now, we're navigating one weekend at a time over here.
