...4 years that is. I'm a terrible, terrible blogger. Not only am I down to once a week posts, I also missed my 4 year blogiversary this past Saturday. I would apologize and tell you I am going to do better, but instead I will just say thank you for reading, thank you for your comments and emails, thank you for following and thank you for inspiring me to keep at it each and every time I want to give it up. I'm taking it one step at a time, but for now, cheers to another great year to come :)

P.S. I'm thinking a giveaway is a good way to celebrate 4 years! Any suggestions on what I should give away?

I'm officially renaming bad hair days, hat hair days because when you can put a hat on, there's no such thing as a bad hair day

As soon as I spotted THIS acid wash baseball cap in Target, I knew I had to have it. It's multifunctional, protecting my skin from the sun, hiding hair that needs some TLC, and adding interest to an outfit whether you choose to dress up, dress down or land somewhere in between like I did here.

Remember THIS post, where I was battling the wind? Well, this is the purple and pink version of that same sweater, and once again I was battling the wind. That's what happens when you're always surrounded by water. #CaliGirlProblems

Do you ever buy the same thing in multiple colors? This is very rare for me, but I caught a super duper deal on these cardigans and I had to do it!

When it comes to trends I'm always two steps behind. Printed pants have been all the rage for a couple of seasons, right? I don't know, but I'm just now getting into them and we have this $12.99 pair from H&M to thank for that.

easter dress

When I got dressed on Sunday morning, I thought to myself "there is nothing about this that says Easter". But you know how it is when you really want to wear something, and don't have time to change even if you wanted to?

The lovely folks at eShakti sent this dress to me ages ago, and there was never a good time to wear it because I rarely dress up. My office is casual and my church is casual, so I knew Easter Sunday needed to be the occasion to wear it. Luckily it rained a lot, and I didn't feel so bad about not being in bright colors

How was your Easter? Did you go traditional with whites, brights and pastels?
