At this point in my life, I just simply don’t have time for anything that doesn’t make me feel good- both mentally and physically good. I’m not quite ready to throw in the towel on caring about feeling stylish. But for me to add an item to my closet, it needs to be comfortable, well made & practical too.
As winter turns to Spring here in the hi-desert, my family has been feeling ready to get out and about to enjoy the simple pleasures of our desert home! We love to spend our afternoons cruising in our van, Goldie, and looking for new spots to explore. We like to wander around and search for desert animals coming out of their winter hiding places. We stop and listen for birds, spot lizards sunning on rocks, and watch jackrabbits scurry by. If we get real lucky, we may even spot a desert tortoise!
For this casual afternoon outing, I wanted to dress comfortably so I could spend the afternoon running around with my daughter with no worries. My kaftan was made by one of my favorite local shops- Shop on the Mesa, and I paired it with my new SeaVees mules. Started in 1964, SeaVees is based in Santa Barbara, where they maintain that classic California cool even today. I love that they’re comfortable and casual yet sophisticated, and I love the thoughtful way they’re produced- in small batches, at a family owned factory in China that pays fair wages, and strives to use environmentally friendly materials.
