Marin County. October 2017.
I love that this dress is Zara, purchased at Goodwill
look, she’s a pretty mom with a pretty floral dress/romper… and a sweet bun. I imagine she looks great in anything. And I’m happy to appreciate her style and effort – – 🙂
Yes, this mom is thin – but remember from ME, CURVES are SLAMMIN’ & any of you Haute Moms can pull this off & look gorgeous!!!
Stacia. M.H.Bread and Butter Bakery. Marin County, California. 2015.
I spotted Stacia on a weekday morning wearing high heels and tight jeans, all while balancing coffee and a kid. This is a rare sighting in the cute town of San Anselmo in Northern California. I wasn’t surprised to learn Stacia had just moved to Marin County from San Francisco…and I was quite happy to see a mom making a solid effort, early on a weekday.
M.H. Bakery, www.mhbreadandbutter.com is my go to spot to write and eat “breakfast pastries”. I know, I probably shouldn’t be eating pastries so frequently, but I feel so Parisian, sitting in a cafe sipping coffee…how do they stay so thin again?
Fashion Notes: Tank: Halogen from Nordstrom, Sweater: H&M, Jeans: Joie, Wedges: Banana Republic, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
A little advice – jeans should be REALLY fitted! Especially if you don’t have an ample back side.
Most recently, Stacia worked at POPSUGAR, a lifestyle, pop-culture site. www.popsugar.com
Carla and Jon. San Anselmo, California. November 2014.
Fashion Notes: Carla: Leather Jacket: Obey, Sweater: Madewell, Tank (worn as dress): Michael Stars, Boots: Betsy Johnson. Jon: Jacket: Levi’s, Pants and Top: J.Crew, Boots: Ariat
I was minding my own business shopping at the local consignment store Sax, when this family walked by – I dropped my newly purchased ankle boots, and lunged at them. It was a rare sighting for a Sunday in this Marin County town….. Carla is a photographer and artist. They live in Marin County with their offspring, who was on her way to ballet.
I love Carla’s bun – it’s so high and chic, but you can tell she has wavy hair – so it’s also wild and free…she happens to be beautiful and pulls it off amazingly well. What can I say, this was an exciting day for me. The combination of Jon’s red pants and black boots, all work so well. It’s nice to see a family in “fashion partnership”.

Lala. San Anselmo, California. October 2014.
I realize this photo is not the best quality, but I had to capture this mom’s style. And all I had was my old iPhone. Something about a head scarf and oversized glasses brings me to a happy place – a place filled with glamorous women, part bohemian 1970’s and part Italian bomb shell.. I guess it’s the Sophia Loren factor.
I’ve used scarves for skirts, tops, bras and for my head – my mom once made me wait in the car as a teen, because my scarf as a “shirt” was inappropriate to visit my uncle in the hospital… well, now i’m an adult, so I can wear my scarf as I please. And let me start with my head….
San Anselmo, California. February 2014.
I feel like I was an outsider observing such a sweet moment with this dad and his daughter. They were listening to a band play, while taking a break from cruising on their boards. Safety first, they are both with helmets!!
This shot is not about the fashion..it’s capturing “a stop and smell the roses” moment on a gorgeous California day. Oh and this dad has some seriously good hair…
Aaron. San Anselmo, California. December 2013.
Love Aaron’s beard and laid back skater look. It’s simple, but still shows that he cares about style. Aaron’s look exemplifies Northern California style.
Happy Sunday! xx Mara
Allison. San Anselmo, California. September 2013.
“Fashion” Truck Notes: 1976 International Harvester Scout in bright Yellow.
I spotted this truck and was picturing myself cruising around a beach town with a huge surf board in the back, all part of the “look”. And out comes Allison and her crew of little ones, who hopped in their Scout…I had to take a photo.
Allison is wearing her grandmother’s Coach bag from the 1970’s. I’ve noticed that in this area, fashion is expressed in so many different ways – not necessarily via clothing, but in other creative ways..like amazing trucks.
Have a great Sunday..look out for stylin’ vehicles xx Mara
