In true California style, the weather was stunningly beautiful for mid-February this past holiday weekend.

I made plans to go commune with nature and visit the redwoods, and I don't think I could've picked a better day. It was nearly 80 degrees where I started the day off, hence the sandals and bright fuschia afro baby tee with fatigues. This is a little number I dubbed my "gangster of love" outfit, lol. Although these heels are not at all practical for hiking, I couldn't resist letting my feet get some sun action before pulling on my motorcycle boots later in the day.

 

With champagne, fruit, cheese, wine, and caprese sandwiches in tow, we began to make our way towards Marin county. We decided to take the scenic route through the city which, of course, resulted in a slight detour at the Golden Gate. The breeze was just enough to keep us from breaking a sweat on our stroll across the bridge. But it was definitely warm enough that I wished I'd opted to wear my pink flip flops instead.

By the time we made it to Muir Woods it was pretty late in the afternoon and the sun was barely peeking through the tops of the branches. As a result there were only a few places that were lit well enough to get some good photos.

The woods were so majestic and ethereal that I felt terribly underdressed. A fairy nymph-style shimmery, off the shoulder ball gown would've been far more appropriate. Next time, maybe.

 

And finally, unexpectedly... the beach!

On a whim, we decided to hit up Muir Beach. We made it just in time to catch a brilliant sunset and pop that bottle for mimosas. And thank goodness for the kindness of strangers who let us take over their fire pits as they were leaving and bequeathed us their logs. This night surely would've ended much sooner and on a far colder and less whimsical note.

Hope your weekend was full of fun & love... have you had a chance to listen to the Sexy is the New Sassy V-Day Playlist I made for you yet? Well... what are you waiting for? Check it out here.

Summer Solstice just arrived! I know I, for one, will be spending mucho time at the pool (working of course!). Here is one of my fave bathing suits styled two different ways for those days when there are still errands to run.  Unless you live someplace where there’s sand and an ocean nearby (I know I don’t), strangers might be giving some serious side-eye for coming into the store with just a sarong and bikini top on. So here is my solution and attempt at dresscode formality in the face of extreme summer sizzling temps. Y’all will deal!! Lol.

Hope you enjoyed the first day of summer as much as I did. To shop the looks that you see here check out The Sassy Nation Shoppe (affiliate link) for more poolside fashion + my favorite summer skincare essentials. ‘Til next time…
