Mother Knows Best

Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. Over the weekend I watched the Slim Aarons documentary The High Life. It was so well done, I highly recommend it. Yesterday I hiked the Paseo Miramar Trail which is always challenging but so beautiful! During the week is the perfect time to go, it wasn’t crowded (easy parking now that it’s restricted on the weekends). Yesterday, I took advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and also ordered this simple Alex Mill Slip Dress. Now onto Mother Knows Best….
