The Sunday Routine

posted on: 7.29.2014

Pants: Gap, Sandals: Madewell, Bag: Ralph Lauren (similar here)

Sundays in Santa Barbara are my favorite, aside from the inevitability of Monday. The weekenders slowly trickle back to their hometowns, SB natives sleep in, and Erik and I partake in our Sunday routine. We lounge in bed until until Erik's hunger can no longer be silenced, after a light breakfast we walk to our favorite coffee shop and treat ourselves to whole milk cappuccinos, occasionally we partake in a bit of window shopping on State Street, then finally settle in our small yet cozy home once again. We relax and/or piddle in silence, paint, read, cook whatever it is, we are together and that is more than enough. 

In truth, Sundays like this only come around every month or so as we always seem to be off doing something somewhere. Yet, it is their rarity that makes me treasure them that much more. 

On that note, cheers to surviving Monday.

  5. I adore the simplicity of your outfit girl! It's refreshing the minimal look is in (I wouldn't doubt you could rock it whenever, though!) -- it makes me feel more ladylike and mature!

    Also, whole milk cappuccinos? That sounds delicious!

  12. This sounds like the ideal Sunday. I remember those BC (before children). My husband and I would go out for fresh bagels and coffee and read the NY Times the majority of the morning. Savor these days while they last :)

  14. That sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday! I'm usually doing boring things like laundry and grocery shopping to prepare for the week.

  24. Love your Sunday style, so simple, yet elegant! Do you have a suggestion for similar pants in a petite style? The Gap has excellent styles, yet they're all too big for me.
