San Diego's Puesto At Headquarters

We were back in San Diego this week!
This time to take my daughter and her husband
(first time I've typed that word since the wedding)
out to a mid week dinner.

I once again chose one of my favorite kimonos 
this time pairing it with a recent Free People maxi dress purchase.
I once again finished the ensemble with straw accessories.

I have found this hair style to be a 
'perfect hat do'.

I buy my hats one size up usually
to compensate for my hair
so inside or at night I can take my hat off
not suffer the usual hat hair hardships.

We got to San Diego early
so we were abel to have a cocktail down in the Marina District
at one of my favorite
Mexican Restaurant Watering Holes

I love the open air patios
with their eclectic decor.

I have a special affinity to their open air bar!

Puesto has been built into the Headquarters plaza
which is actually a redevelopment of the old San Diego Police Headquarters.
The open air plaza is now full of shops and eateries.

And includes some traveling 'Street Art' as well!

How wonderful is this piece by Artist Kelsey Montague

What Lifts You!!

What a wonderful concept to spend time pondering!

And so may I ask …

What Lifts You?

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life


  1. I love "what Lifts You"! And you look totally gorgeous in this kimono plus maxi dress. thanks for linking up, xo


  2. A perfect match between your new dress and the beautiful kimono, making you a gorgeous butterfly! What clever pictures Tamera. What lifts me? Blue skies, sunshine, plants and flowers, always raise my spirits. xo

  3. Always spectacular, this dress is wonderful!

  4. Wonderful shots of San Diego, a place I hope to re visit one day.Love what lifts you up and you posed perfectly with those wings.Good friends, good conversation and time in my garden are special to me, so they lift me up.

  5. Nobody wears a hat like you! The entire look is simply stunning!

  6. Other than an incredible strong underwire bra with incredible padding to lift my sagging girls from years and years of breastfeeding, my travels to France lift me. Honestly, they place me in a higher and happier place. BTW. I'm lemming your hairdo. How did you get it like that? It's so perfect!!!!

  7. Gorgeous. Love the tip about hat hair, but how do you get your hat to stay on in a breeze if it isn't a firm fit?
