How’s everyone doing? I can’t believe it’s already the end of August. It happens every year but summer goes by in the blink of an eye. It’s already feeling like fall here. I have mixed feelings about that. Hoping we can get some late summer beach days in with Marin before it gets too cold. Not sure if you remember the style challenge I wanted to do in September but it’s coming! Going to share more details this weekend.

The striped organic cotton knit that sells out every time. The Sezane Leontine jumper is back in stock! I have it in a medium for a more relaxed fit. It’s a bit cropped so sizing up doesn’t seem to add much length.
Charming! Frog & Toad leave the house after quarantine, updated stories for Covid times.
This is such a cool clean beauty brand I discovered at Sephora. It was founded by a former Sephora employee and she is a one woman show. It’s clean, vegan, cruelty free, recyclable packaging and the makeup is infused with crystals. I love this palette. (J)

Have you watched Outcry? It’s about a Texas teen convicted of sexual assault of a 4 year old boy and the ensuing support that emerges for him calling into question the investigation and the validity of the conviction. It was incredibly well done.
