Brother Michael Turns 30

A couple of Fridays ago, my dear brother-in-law Michael turned 30! Us Klein Kids were so excited to help him celebrate. We met at his place in Monrovia and then headed to old town Pasadena for a little dinner, wine, and jazz at Redwhite+bluezzz. A good time was had by all and our dear Michael got to celebrate this milestone birthday. The only hitch? 30 candles on the cake turned into a forest fire! Luckily, Brother Michael blew them out right away. I think this might be the last time we do a candle for each year for him. ;-)

Inspiration: Breakfast at Tiffany's

Photo Credit
My sister and I have a shared love of all things Audrey Hepburn. We loved her movies growing up: Sabrina, My Fair Lady, Roman Holiday, but the clear favorite was always Breakfast at Tiffany's. Well, joy of joys it is finally on Netflix!! I spent most of yesterday enjoying this fine film and was so inspired. You can turn to Miss Holly Golightly for everything!

Interior? Keep it simple with a pop of color.

Sunday outfit? Keep is casual and add a scarf.

Party time? Good friends, music, and a classic bar cart! (Check out Society Social for the bar cart perfected.)

More outfit inspiration? The classic trench. I love Target's version, chic and cheap.

Also, head over to The Silver Screen Affair and meet Emily. She has the most darling and inspiring blog where I found most of these photos.

Forks Over Knives

Alrighty. We are doing it. Going whole foods, plant based. Basically vegan with a fancy name. I grew up vegetarian so I don't think it will be too hard, but I will miss many dairy products. Cheese and eggs will be the most difficult. I love breakfast food and I love pizza. But Hubs and I recently watched the movie Forks Over Knives and decided to make a change. Check it out. I recently purchased two cookbooks to help us figure this out. I will keep you guys updated. Wish us luck!

A Week of Instagram

I have fallen in LOVE with the Instagram app on my iPhone. So many infinite options and I feel like a better photographer than I really am. My brain is always processing how I can document daily life with this wonderful little app. I thought I would share a weeks worth of Instagram images. Enjoy!

A Change of Season

Although we don't see the typical four seasons here in southern California, I think we all look forward to fall fashions regardless. Just another reason to dress up. As it slowly starts to cool down I've been pining like crazy in Pinterest all my fall inspirations. Here are a few things I am currently craving.

Back to blogging and back from Big Sur

Campsite 21 at Kirk Creek Campground
Wow, where have I been? I'll tell you. Starting a little bloggity blog for work. A little thing called www.modernshopgirl.com has eaten up all my creativity and time. But now that things have finally mellowed out, I'm back in the saddle. Summer is over. To prove it here are some pics from our last vacation of the season.
Husband and I cruised up to beautiful Big Sur with one of our favorite couples, Brett and Cara. We had 4 relaxing days of exploring, hiking, sunsets, and good talks around the campfire. It was truly unforgettable and a great way to say good bye to summer.

It's ok to still look cute while roughing it.
