Happy Monday friends!! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I am bummed to say that I spent mine at work.  Boo! I work today and then I get a nice 3 day stretch off!! Whooohooo!! Last week however, was lovely.  Our family was here from Turkey! We explored downtown Sacramento together, the capital  and the most beautiful rose garden.  Below you’ll see one of the many gorgeous roses I spotted in these lush gardens! The following day we spent in SF eating yummy food, window shopping and drinking coffee.  I felt so blessed all day.  Just to be with family and to be hanging with Ben all day was such a treat.  We also stopped at Stinton Beach but didn’t stay because there wasn’t any parking for miles! We later discovered that it was Spring break down there for them.  Either way, the beach was gorgeous and the perfect temp!

Ok, enough about last week! This week is super exciting as well!! Style Collective,  our premier community for style bloggers to connect and go after our dreams launches their third style challenge this week! Each day has a different theme and a shop sponsoring each day.  All participants have a chance to win shop credit from the boutique that is sponsoring the challenge that day! Here is what you can expect for our challenge: Monday: 2016 Pantone Colors with Haute Bauble Boutique.     Tuesday: Spring Bag or Clutch with Hello Grace Boutique.   Wednesday: Pattern Mixing with Rire Boutique.   Thursday: Floral Prints with Boa Boutique. Friday: Pop of White with Crane & Lion.  

Today is all about the 2016 Pantone colors of the year! I was fortunate to have both Rose Quartz and Serenity in my closet. I LOVE these colors so much.  In my opinion, they scream peace and joy! The whole look is super girly which is so me! What do you think about the Pantone colors this year?!  Be sure to follow or join our #SCSpringStyle challenge here.  Thank you again for stopping by the blog! Have an amazing week.  Much love,

Ruthie xo
