Sometimes after a hellish day, chilling out isn’t the easiest thing to do on your own. However, in my experience, I’ve found that there are a few things that can be done with minimal effort that can yield maximum results.
There’s nothing I love more than a printed dress. I have over 40 dresses in my closet (stay tuned for more on that), but none quite like this one. With mesh panels and a sporty feel to it, I took some bold moves and paired it with touches of silver metallic.
OK, so it’s hard to believe it’s winter when we’ve had such amazing weather here in Sac, but in fact, it is winter for a few more days! Regardless of the season, my legs are a part of my body that rarely get cold, so with temperatures hitting the upper 70’s for the next several days, there’s no better time to show some leg in these suede shorts.
I like beer. I like it a lot. And there’s no better time to indulge than Sacramento Beer Week. All week long there have been events at local restaurants and breweries to commemorate this annual occasion, and this weekend they’re going out with a bang. On top of the various events happening on and off the grid, the finale event Capitol Beer Fest will take over Capitol Mall this Sunday afternoon.
Testing, testing – is this thing on? Hey y’all!
Yes, I am still here, alive and well.
I was taking a “holiday hiatus” if you will, focused on spending time with loved ones and doing lots of self care. Despite a couple of detours, 2014 was a good year for me, and an even better one for The Lipstick Giraffe. As I put this post together, I couldn’t believe all that I accomplished, all while working full time and doing my best to be a good daughter and friend. But I did it! Here are some highlights of my 2014 as The Lipstick Giraffe:
This post is a few weeks too late, but it’s finally cooled off enough to wear I can wear sweaters and boots. As soon as I saw this crane sweater from the Altuzarra for Target collection, I knew I had to have it. And it was made in two of my favorite combinations of all time: black and gold.
Hope you’re enjoying your Tuesday. It’s still pretty warm here in Sacramento, and there’s nothing better than sitting on a patio, enjoying a cool beverage, doing a little work and people watching, too. This time, I chose the Chocolate Fish Coffee patio. The East Sac one is in my neighborhood and is a great place to read, gather and enjoy some killer coffee and teas. There are two locations and both have super friendly staff. This location was closing as Christie and I took pictures on the patio, but they didn’t rush us out, which was very nice.
