Now that the weather has been warm here we have been spending alot of time outdoors and at the beach. I think a sun hat looks so chic. I picture this with my black strapless one piece. It is a steal from The Gap of all places!

This is my latest lunch obsession. I make a batch at the beginning of the week and then eat it all week long for lunch. I usually serve it with hummus, pita chips, and sauteed kale. All you have to do is add hot water to the mix and let it sit for 30 mins. I always add fresh lemon juice, olive oil, chopped tomato, onion, and fresh mint to mine. This salad is so good!

I just got this book and love it. It is filled with interviews with so many great people like DVF, Lauren Hutton and MK and Ashley. It is gorgeous coffee table book.

I heart these shorts. I only own plain jean shorts and I am looking to spice up my shorts wardrobe this summer. Would you believe I never owned a pair of shorts til after I had Sterling! I never thought I was a shorts type of girl. But now I love them. I think this Tibi pair is perfect because they would be cute for running errands with a white tee or dressed up with a blouse and heels!

I have really been into statement necklaces lately. I love this one and it is only $24! The white would go with everything!

    I love those shorts. Show off those legs, Mama!! I hope you get that hat. It's a very chic look with a black one-piece…very Chanel I think.

    oh my gosh, I was obsessed with tabouleh my senior year of college and made it for some pre-party cocktail party for a sorority function and still have not heard the end of it. I like to think I was just a step ahead of chips and salsa but my friends weren't quite ready at the time!

    I want to pick up that book. Love the Tibis. Tabouleh is one of my favorites.

    I love a good floppy hat….It's a Cali beach staple. Luckily for me I have all the ingredients to make your lunch. Yay.

    That hat is CUTE! I could definitely get some good use out of it with all of my black bathing suits!

    While in Florida last month I saw a very similar hat at Banana, though the stripes were thinner, I regret not getting it so much! So please, go and get this one 😉
