Favorites Under $100

FP Alexis Set | Comfy Sweatshirt and Skirt Set
I just ordered five things from Free People that I ended up loving – each under $100! Have you guys bought from their “Beach” line before? Sometimes I like to go on the site and just shop “FP Beach” – it’s usually less expensive and super comfy! I bought this dress in two colors, this set in two colors, and this romper. This set is SO soft and comfy – I’ve literally worn it for…

Shorter Days | Longer Overcoats

Free people coat and street style by Jen Hawkins on Palms to Pines style blog
Guys, I can’t get over how short the days seem now!  Part of me hates it, but with the temperatures in the 80s around here lately it seems to be the only way to tell that it’s actually winter.  I’m hoping for some chillier days ahead, and I’ll be dreaming about wearing long coats in the meantime.  I’m obsessed with the one I’m wearing here – it was sold out for a while and JUST…

Early Morning Grind | Captain’s Grounds

Jen Hawkins california street style on Palms to Pines style blog
One morning last week, I got up early, put Lo in the car, and headed down to Oceanside to get some work done with my friend Rusty Spencer.  (Lo LOVES to play with his little pug, Finch.  They are a match made in heaven!)  We met up at my favorite little spot in Oceanside – Captain’s Grounds.  I splurged on a dirty chai with almond milk.  It was amazing, both because they made it so…

Printed Tunic Top | California Fall

Printed tunic top on Jen Hawkins Palms to Pines
I can’t believe October has creeped in!  I wish the weather here matched how I’m feeling – I’ve been seeing pictures of the fall leaves with lots of envy.  I think Blake is really sick of me saying how much I want to be in the mountains right now, but I can’t help it.  I feel like living in California always puts me behind on the holidays.  It just doesn’t seem right to put up…

Mellow Yellow

Guys, I love this dress, and it’s on sale right now!  It’s basically summer in a dress – bright yellow and breezy!  It’s conservative if it needs to be, and can be dressed up for a wedding or an event.  Sizes are selling out fast, so get it while you still can!

Mock Neck | Faux Suede Fringe

It’s all about mock and faux ;).  Usually I go through phases where I’m constantly shopping for the same thing, even if I’ve already bought various forms of it.  For example, right now I keep searching for mock neck anything, and fringe.  That seems to be my jam this fall! Fringe Jacket | Mock Neck Top | Super Flare Jeans | Matisse Booties | Electric Aviator Sunglasses | St. Eve Necklace I love this mock neck shirt from…

Headed to the RiSE Festival

Last year, Blake and I were able to attend the RiSE Festival with our good friends, Jason and Sydney.  We documented our experience together – Jason took photos and made a beautiful video.  We were also lucky to collaborate with Free People, who also used the post I wrote for their blog.  I can’t believe that was a year ago, and now we’re getting ready to attend RiSE for the second time this weekend, with…

Warm Sweater | Chilly Beach Nights

If you’ve seen me in the last few weeks, you’ve seen me wearing this sweater ;).  It’s quickly become my favorite – so cozy and so cute.  And can we talk about how I can’t get rid of the HUGE misconception I have about living in Southern California?!  It may be a warm place during the day, but the nights are CHILLY.  Despite what I think I want to wear to go out at night,…

Drybar | A Girls’ Kind of Morning

This morning my good friend Tiffany and I started out our day with a session at The Drybar in Newport Beach.  If you haven’t heard of Drybar before, it’s a pretty amazing little place where they specialize in blowouts.  No cutting or coloring, just a great shampoo and style for $40.  For me, it’s kind of like a dream come true, considering blow drying my hair is one of my least favorite things to do…

Black on Black…on Blake

I love this flowy Free People mock neck tunic, so comfy and simple.  Last weekend I wore it with my black destroyed J. Brands.  Black on black…with my little gold necklace that says “Blake!”  Recently, I’ve been in love with it.  I’ve gotten so many compliments on it, and I kind of love when people I don’t know see it and ask, “Is your name Blake?”  I’m a weirdo, I know. This is a good day…
