Rainy Day | Black & Grey

How to wear a hat on Jen Hawkins | Palms to Pines style blog
It’s finally cooled off around here (and even been raining) and I’ve maaaaybe worn this cozy vest the last three days….and might wear it again tomorrow ;).  The rain has made me feel at home (what up, Seattle!) so I figured I might as well reveert to my black and grey.  Never gets old!  I paired the vest with all my current favorite black basics – this black bodysuit, black skinny jeans, black booties, and…

My Minnetonka | Gifting Boots and Slippers

Minnetonka shoe style by Jen Hawkins on Palms to Pines
As I’m just now starting my holiday shopping, I got excited to share this post with you guys.  In the past, I’ve give Minnetonka mocs and slippers as gifts, and this year I’m loving their boots.  There’s something about the brand that makes me feel nostalgic, so I love that they never go out of style.  I also love that they’re made out of high-quality leathers and are SO comfortable, but the price point is…

“Girlsgiving” | DIY Succulent Pumpkins with Moranda

Succulents and Pumpkin thanksgiving day centerpiece
Last night, my house was full of succulents, pumpkins, girlfriends, food, and one really amazing florist.  It was kind of my dream come true.  You know those super pretty pumpkins with succulents “in” them?  Well my friend Moranda Fielding taught us to make our own, and it was SO fun!  They are the perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece and/or gift for whoever is hosting you for Thanksgiving.  And they last for literally weeks, so much more longevity…

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…

Thanksgiving hostess gift | Palms to pines style blog
Ok so, this post was supposed to go up Friday, but better late than never, right? A Cute Host/Hostess Gift.  There are so many fun holiday parties and events this time of year, and I always struggle with what to bring the host/hostess.  I found the cutest thing at Williams Sonoma – this white marble monogrammed cheese board.  You can keep it simple and just get the board, or get the matching cheese slicer to…

Election Day | Sales and Such

Jen Hawkins california street style on Palms to Pines style blog
It seems like just yesterday this day was so far away, and now it’s here.  So many mixed emotions going in to it!  Part of me will be grateful for it to be over, but the other part of me is dreading the result and what comes next.  I have noticed in the past couple of days a few people who have been noticeably positive about the election result and the future, and I admire that!…

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…

Rose gold Nikes on Jen Hawkins | Palms to Pines
These Rose Gold Nikes.  Is it weird that I want a pair of Air Max in every color?  I’ve been wearing my all white ones nonstop, but this rose gold pair might have just taken their place.

The Cubs.  Speaking of Nike, this video Nike put out called “Goodbye Someday” gives…

Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck…and this Romper

Jen Hawkins retro beach style on Palms to Pines style blog
Today I’m posting because I finally have photos of the romper I wear way too much, and because I’ve had so many people ask me where it’s from.  Also because I took photos with Rusty Spencer and he’s the coolest, and the truck he brought was pretty cool too ;).  Guys, trust me when I say you NEED this romper (probably in every color)! Black Romper | One-Shoulder Bodysuit | Black Booties | Driving Cap | Sunglasses Black…

Oxford water dress | Jen Hawkins Palms to Pines style blog
New fall arrivals from The Oxford Trunk – I’m obsessed with this sweater dress.  Trust me, you’ll want to live in it. Turtle-neck Sweater Dress | Camel Overcoat | Over-the-knee Boots | Sunnies | Beanie | Gold Rings Pumpkin Everything.  So, I’ve avoided the subject of pumpkin so far this fall, but I had a pumpkin souffle last night and it must have opened Pandora’s box.  Sorry but I’m not sorry.  That, and I’m officially off Whole30, which…
