... hello Monday ... hello gratitude ...

Hello Monday... hello gratitude for the most wonderful weather.

If you ever get a chance to visit SoCal...
may I recommend the end of September and October...
 This time of year the weather can make for the most breathtaking views...
It's warm, but not too warm.
The skies are clear...
with fall gently blowing in...
especially along the beach...
and
 at one of my all time favorite places in the world...
the Montage.
Sunday I was reading all about Paris fashion week...
and wishing I was there....

so I decided...where CAN I go today...
that would be fabulous...
and the Montage is always a good idea!
As is...
Splashes at the Surf and Sand in Laguna...
at sunset.
all are reasons for a fun outfit  (more on they here).

Dana Point early in a fall morning...
and Doheney Beach for a stroll.
One of my all time iconic Laguna Beach spots...
 French 75 was sold this year...
which was pretty sad.
But...
 the good news...
we were lucky enough to have a walk through of the soon to open new restaurant...
and I am so happy and grateful to report...

that not only did they retain the charm of the original 1920's architecture...
they have imbued it with a current aesthetic
that embraces the past while throwing new light and excitement into the space.
I'll be counting down to this opening at the end of the month!


as always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. Beautiful, Tamera. Thank you for taking us to such wonderful places. I am grateful today that San Antonio temps will be in the high 80s and not the high 90s as we have had. I am so ready for some fall...I hear it might be coming this weekend. I am also grateful for my blog friends and so many wonderful reads across the blogosphere. Have a great day. Blessings!!

  5. Gorgeous photos, Tamera!
    Laguna Beach is ensconced in the warm waning sun as well, as breakfast on the patio at Greeters afforded the magical disappearance of morning fog.

    Perhaps a girls night out to enjoy the opening, if Jeff doesn't mind!

  9. I love your glamorous outfit! You make California look so good, it makes me want to return for a visit and I haven't felt like that for a long time! Thank you for joining us for "How I Wear My: Animal Print". I added your picture with the great leopard shoes to my post. I am in love with the jacket you are wearing in that photo. Where did you get it? XO, Jill
