new shorts

kco2

The other day I received two new paris of Krass & Co. shorts in the mail. I got Beachcomber in navy and Wildflower in white. I already loved the few pairs I had, but these take it to a whole new level. They are absolutely perfect. The navy pair makes me feel oh-so-fit while the white pair makes my legs look sooo tan! There is nothing better than the feeling of working out, and there is no better way to work out than while looking great! Krass & Co’s new line of shorts are to-die-for and you should treat yourself to a pair right away 😉 Perfect for easy jogs, quick runs, and cat walks!

spring looks

spring looks

There are two looks that I am absolutely loving for the spring season right now. The first is a pair of high-waisted shorts with an easy tank and some cool aviators, and the second is a pair of white denim jeans with a flow-y top and go-to Jack Rogers sandals. I love the festival feel of the first look just as much as I adore the dinner-at-sunset feel of the second. Now it’s time to decide how to spend my very limited budget…

morning, noon, & night

mnnThis spring break I will be headed down to Florida to visit my grandma and meet up with my twin sister who also has her spring break at the same time! I am so looking forward to the warm weather (remember Monday’s post?) and already brainstorming awesome outfits for some fun in the sun. I think this bright and blue collection would be perfect for a day down south. A casual tank and shorts for errands in the morning, a cute dress for an afternoon snack, and a flow-y frock and a classic jean jacket for a breezy night walking in the sand. Anyone else have fun plans for their spring break this year?

my week in photos

I can’t believe I’ve been in Cali for nearly two weeks now! Where has the time gone?! Here’s a little photo montage to give you a better picture (hehehe) of what my past week has looked like:

The Boy and I went to Muir Woods to check out the giant red wood trees. It was absolutely incredible and I wish we had had more time to explore the park!

I treated myself to a new Lululemon top (see here). Words can’t even begin to  describe the attention to detail or how much I love it.

We ventured into the city to visit a friend from Union who was in town for a geology conference. We really only drove through, but I am looking forward to exploring more next week with my sister.

Got a beautiful shot of the Golden Gate from a great look-out to the north.

The Boy and I are taking full advantage of Union extensive winter break (read: 6 weeks what whatttt) and reconnecting with our childhood roots. I was creating a house out of Legos when the cat stepped in and decided to add his own touches.

On Wednesday we drove 6 and a half hours down the state of California to visit my sister at Caltech! Here she is with the beautiful boys.

I had the most incredible Waffle Chicken Salad for lunch at Caltech‘s faculty club, The Athenaeum — “a buckwheat waffle made with pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries, topped with frisee, apple, crispy chicken, goat cheese and maple vinaigrette” — that’s one equation that equals YUM.

The Boy enjoyed exploring the Caltech campus and seeing all of the neat scientific displays, including this artwork representing 4D space.

friday friday

happy black friday shoppers!

happy black friday shoppers!

So, my little sister and I did end up venturing out for Black Friday — at 7pm on Thursday of all times! At Victoria’s Secret they almost split us up because they were only letting 25 people in at time and when my sister and I got to the register and compared finds we discovered that we had picked up the same exact things (like sister, like sister!). When we hit Target things were suspiciously calm until my sister noted that there were a lot of people in the make-up area so there must be some good deals there… No. It was the line for the register. Over a half an hour wait. We ended up ditching our potential Target finds, but going out was a great adventure nonetheless. I didn’t go wild this Black Friday, but I always love seeing the buzz and the excitement. Did you get anything great this weekend??

xmas

In honor of Black Friday I have decided to share with you my personal Christmas wish list. It includes a number of Lululemon treats, wine accessories (I’m an old girl, it’s ok!), lovely love knot earrings (see Monday’s post), gift cards and, of course, (Mom’s go-to) socks (which I actually love). To be honest, I’m not hugely into Black Friday deals because I feel like most of the really good ones revolve around technology and I fell pretty set with that, but I do like the buzz and the excitement and the getting up early and I can always go for a good Target DVD deal bin so I might just venture out today… What’s on your list this year?

print worth celebrating

I follow a lot of blogs, but one of the most colorful ones (literally) is the Lilly Pulitzer blog. A lot of the posts revolve around store openings here or there or travel guides to magnificent warm places (sigh…), but my favorite regular features on The Juice Stand are the “Print Worth Celebrating” posts. They’re so bright and beautiful and feature what Lilly is known for best: her prints! I have a thing about color… I love buying magazines not really for the stories, but for all of the wonderful colors (it must be related to the same part of my brain that enjoys reading blogs…). Colors elicit an emotional response from me; something is either “happy,” “colorful,” and “bright” or “sad,” dark,” and “dismal.” This time of year in particular I am super sensitive to colors and all the emotions that come with them. That’s why I love to set my computer desktop background to these delicious Lilly prints. They’re spunky and creative and help me stay cheerful when I’m doing work and the sun is setting at 5pm.
