On this weekend.. the San Mateo Home tour, a recap of my Rails event, Everlane’s new linen, Tevas x Chloe collection and more..
Last Saturday’s fun at Rails at Stanford Shopping Center….
Hope your week was good! This week was busy, so this Saturday post is a little short…Last weekend I hosted a little shopping event at the Palo Alto Rails and it was a lot of fun. So many nice people came by and some were new to the brand and wanted to know more about it. I had a great time helping style people with these beautiful clothes. Thank you Susie, Kristin and Lee Ann for letting me share you in some of the Rails looks.. Thanks also to the lovely team of women working at this Rails store. They made it a great experience!
If you missed this, stop by one of the stores- Hayes Valley in San Francisco- or the Stanford Shopping Center. I think seeing the items up close and trying them on you will see why I love them…They have a cool men’s collection as well. Thank you also to my pal Jeanne for helping and snapping some photos.
I brought a few items home with me and realized they could make a great little capsule for summer. Next week on the blog, I’ll share all of the looks and details.. ( Sorry ran out of time this week to do it.)
On My Radar..
I’m a fan of all things Liberty and the few pieces I own, I treasure. This Fleur top from J. Crew is lovely for summer and also comes in other fabrics and colors.. 30% off now with code SUNNY
Everlane has a new collection and the tan stripes in linen bias dresses and tops are really chic..The whole collection here.
Serena & Lily is having 20% off for their Memorial Sale…This Larkin Rug has been on my wish list and darn it if it didn’t go on clearance .. There are a few sizes left and i am going to see if I can maybe make the 6x 9 work in my bedroom. I also adore these towels and want another of these storage baskets. The additional 20% works on sale items too. Use code GOFIRST when you checkout.
What to Pack For…
On Wednesday, we did a big collaboration of seven bloggers sharing ‘What to Pack…’ for their part of the country. I thought it would be a great way for everyone to share their expertise about their area…and just in time for summer getaways.
I shared my packing list and tips for what to wear in Lake Tahoe in summertime. We also had posts on Napa Valley, Paso Robles, Santa Cruz, New York City, Florida and North Carolina.. So many places I want to go now… Stop on by the post where I am linking to everyone here.
Tevas x Chloe
I just had to laugh as I went on the Teva site to find my granola pair for my Tahoe post this week and was shocked to see there is a Chloe x Teva collaboration! It’s apparently very exclusive as I had to submit my email to see it. There are interesting and fun if you have the extra dollars.. They are made of all recycled material. You can see the collection of the three designs here.
Personally I adore my regular Tevas for Tahoe and the beach and long walks. Mine are here. I know I never thought I’d own a pair either, but they are so comfy and kind of cool in places like Tahoe and the beach.. Good for long days on the feet as well.
The SOL Mateo Kitchen Tour
Juliet and I had a chance to attend the SOL Mateo Kitchen Tour which is in San Mateo, Burlingame, and Hillsborough on Friday. We are both house lovers so it was wonderful and for a good cause. All the money goes to help with mental health and how they help their community here.
The homes were in some charming neighborhoods..and we so wish photos were allowed, but they were not. Here are some exterior shots and some the pretty yards. If you are into home decor, you should do this next year. A lot of home tours went away during Covid, and I hope they are starting back again. It is so fun to see how others live -up close!

Juliet will have more on her post too on the tour.
If you missed last weekend’s post, it was on the cropped trench, some ideas for refreshing the patio, and Mother’s Day thoughts..
Hope you have a great weekend,
