good spirits

calivintage: good spirits

on saturday morning, i woke up bright and early with weekend plans to drive up to marin to enjoy the beautiful beginning of fall. i perched on my computer with a cup of coffee, as per usual, when an unexpected package arrived in the mail: this pretty pretty dress from nina of family affairs! i immediately threw it on and did a little dance in my apartment before heading out of town with brendan. we made our way to one of our favorite spots in san rafael, sol food. if you’re ever in the area, you need to stop by for the best puerto rican cuisine ever! this time, i tried ponche, a mix of iced tea and limeade, and i have been dreaming about it since! i need to head to the grocery store so i can make a huge jug of it to keep in my refrigerator, even if the weather is beginning to cool down!

then we meandered around the area, popping into local thrift stores and boutiques before taking a very scenic route partway up mt. tamalpais and through the california coastline. and, whenever we find ourselves up in the area, we always have to stop at another favorite restaurant, avatar’s! which, i know, as with sol food, i’ve mentioned it before, but you really have to try it if you find yourself in northern california. nothing beats their sweet potato punjabi enchiladas! and of course, we had to round out our very decadent day with a big cup of coffee for the drive home.

    1. hehe, thank you! i actually forgot to tell the story about my watch! i met the girl who writes closet collage and she was wearing this watch! i loved it so much that i looked it up and ran to the department store to get it. my boyfriend convinced me to hold off, and a week later, it arrived in the mail all wrapped up for me! sweetest present ever!

  2. I love this! Love your blog, I find myself reading it before bedtime so that I can dream about all the beautiful clothes featured. Thanks!

    1. thank you! it was funny, we met up with brendan’s folks that night and she laughed at me saying it looked like something she would have worn when she was in 4th grade. i was hoping that she wasn’t trying to say i was dressed as a child and more that this style was a trend back when she was a kid… but i wanted to tell her that it’s also very ’30s inspired, so it’s nice to hear you say that!
