Feeling Lucky this Saint Patrick’s Day

Friday-march-17

Hello there! It’s crazy to think that we are already half way through the month of March. This year seems to be flying by. Saint Patrick’s day is here and it’s important to be prepared so you don’t get pinched! Different shades of green are pouring into our store this season and we would love to share with you how to wear them.

For a more casual look we have paired together a fun pair of Green Skinny Cargo pants that are just perfect for the holiday! With a simple white off the shoulder top, the jeans will be sure to give you a pop of green showing your Saint Patrick’s Day spirit.

Another one of our favorite green tops is the Muse Key Hole Tie Top by Blue Life. It’s rich color really stands out with the Omaha Necklace. A simple pair of dark wash jeans and our Neptune sandals really bring this outfit all together.

If you’re planning on having a date night this holiday, the Castilla Ruffle Dress is the perfect combination of fun and sophisticated. This dress can be worn simply on its own or with a pair of skinnies. Throw on our new olive green Party Up Suede heel and the Plum Teardrop Druse Necklace to really complete the look.

We hope you have a wonderful and safe Saint Patrick’s Day!

Introducing: Bella Dahl

thursday-mar-2

One of our new favorite brands has just recently hit the racks at PB&J Boutique and we couldn’t be more excited. Bella Dahl was established in 2010 in Los Angeles. Their brand has such soft materials and relaxed pieces that pull in that Southern California style. From buttons ups to skirts, Bella Dahl has it all. Here at PB&J Boutique we had a little fun pairing some of our new items from the brand and styling them together for you! Enjoy 🙂

monday-feb-27

With spring weather just around the corner, the Cala Lilly Tank is such a lightweight piece that we are crazy about! The blouse has light vertical stripes of pink throughout that are so faint but create the perfect pink color. Here we have it paired with a light wash boyfriend style jean.

wednesday-mar-8

For this outfit we put together both a blouse and a pair of pants from Bella Dahl. The Frosted Tulip Button Down is a sheer top that can be worn with the sleeves rolled up for some of those warmer days. The Cargo Jogger pant are oh so comfortable and stylish! Tuck in a blouse with these pants and wear a pair of sandals and you are set for the spring.

For another full Bella Dahl inspired outfit we have paired together the Lavender Cloud Button Down (which is one of our all time favorites!) and the Side Button Skirt. We put the skirt a little more high waisted and tied the button down top just above it. The hints of blue from the top and skirt worked so well together. Again, so in love with the softness of all of these pieces.

thursday-mar-9

The detail on the Truffle Button Back blouse is just so darling. It’s such a simple tee but the button back gives it some extra style. We just love how there’s also a little slit in the back where the buttons end to show more of jeans you pair with it.

wednesday-mar-1

We had so much fun styling our new pieces and hope we inspired you for some new outfits for this spring. Be sure to check out our new arrivals!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Happy almost February! It’s crazy how fast January has flown by. With that being said, it is never too early to start preparing for the next holiday. Valentine’s Day is an important day to show your love and affection towards your special ones. We have put together some cute and special gift ideas that can help you find the perfect presents to give to your loved ones.

editpbj1

When I think of Valentine’s Day I immediately think of the color pink. Pink is such a fun and girly color, so having any excuse to rock some pink accessories I will take the first chance I get! This Metallic Pink Cross Body bag is perfect for adding some color to any outfit. Pair it with the Eclipse Pink sunglasses and you will be sure to turn some heads! Tie it all together with the Sunset Clouds necklace which has just a hint of pink. Spray on our ever so delicious Honeycomb Fragrance for the perfect Valentine’s Day attire.

For another great gift idea, I have paired together the hand painted All My Love Sign with some cute little items like the Pink Tissue Ruffle Slip, some sweet little hair ties, some delicious smelling Field and Flowers shower gel and a sweet little striped tray that is perfect for putting jewelry on like the GF Magenta Agate Necklace.

pbj1-25-2017 (129 of 14)

For some red accessories we have the Hunter Carmine flannel that is super comfy and soft, it really pops with the Red Camden Buckle Wristlet and the Dixi Orange glasses. The Love Sign is such a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day and you can never go wrong with the Golden Coast Double Wick Candle.

pbj1-25-2017 (130 of 14)

One of my favorite purses that we have in the store is the Red Oakley Cross Body Fringe purse by Fredd and Basha. Another great product that we carry is the Willow and Water Bubble Bath, which smells absolutely amazing. The Love You More sign is also perfect for the occasion!

Hopefully this was able to spark some ideas for the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift! Happy Saturday.

The Black & White Textured Blazer 3 Ways

Hello there! It’s almost the weekend and we are all so excited. After all of the stormy weather we had this week in Chico, CA, blue skies this weekend is going to be such a treat. If you’re looking for a versatile blazer that is perfect for transitioning from the office to a night out, the Black and White Textured Blazer is just the piece for you! We’ve put together three different outfits with the blazer that have different looks such as business casual, a dressed up look, and a casual fit. We hope you enjoy 🙂

pbj1-4-2017 (9 of 18)-2 copy

When I think of a blazer I immediately think of a business attire look. The Black and White Textured blazer is not your ordinary business blazer, yet has a new and fun spin on it. The lapel of the blazer has a black embroidered circular pattern that pops against a white top.

pbj1-4-2017 (10 of 18)-2

For this look we have paired the Blazer with the Luna Lace Blouse, Anna Ponti Trousers, and the Well Known Grey flats.

pbj1-4-2017 (15 of 18)-2

The Zoey Dress and the Joyride Heels paired with the Blazer is the perfect outfit for a night out on the town.

For a more casual look, the Blazer pairs nicely with a white blouse and a pair of denim jeans. These basic colors really work well together. Add a pair of neutral flats to pull the whole outfit together.

Flora Grubb Gardens

If you are visiting San Francisco, I can’t recommend Flora Grubb Gardens enough.

This garden is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been in the area and it makes for the perfect weekend adventure. Whether you’re going to purchase some plants, take a gardening class, spark inspiration or grab a cup coffee – it is sure to be a treat.

img_8122-2

The entire space is surrounded by greenery which will give you inspiration for your bedroom, living space or outdoor gardens.

Flora Grubb also has the cutest cafe inside called Ritual Coffee. After we spent some time admiring the beautiful plants and succulents, we stepped inside for a latte and homemade Oreo cookie.

We were also greeted by the garden’s resident cat. He was the sweetest thing!

I knew when we decided to visit Flora Grubb that we would be walking and searching for plants, so I wanted to keep my wardrobe casual.

We spent a few hours in the gardens walking around and my Odell booties provided the right amount of support and comfort while still looking cute.

If you have the opportunity to visit Flora Grubb Gardens, it will not disappoint! A wonderful cup of coffee and a beautiful garden makes for relaxing and wonderful Saturday morning.

PB&J Reunion-Mendocino

img_0088So very Thankful for these amazing women!

7 years ago I started PB&J Boutique and with the help of these women (& some not photographed-next year ladies) it has become so much more to me than I could have ever imagined. On this day as we reflect on what we are thankful for, I have to say that I have had the absolute pleasure of working along side some pretty incredible women who have shown me true friendship and I’m so incredibly grateful that each of them are such a big part of my life. They have taught me that there are women in this world that want other women to succeed and that silly girl drama does not need to exist in the work place or in relationships for that matter. When we get together we laugh until our cheeks hurt, cry together and always know that no matter what direction life takes us that we always will be there for one another. We always say we are a little family and it is so very true. This amazing group of ladies are without a doubt some of the most honest, kind, fun and smart precious souls I know. I am so beyond grateful for the friendships each and every one of them have shown me. I love you ladies so much and thank you for bringing so much joy to our PB&J Fam!
img_0037

Here is a little peak into our girls trip to Mendocino. We had an amazing stay at one of the most charming towns on this planet. For those of you who haven’t been, you need to! Mendocino is a place of pure beauty where you can get out doors and simply relax.

img_0310

The first night we arrived we were lucky enough to make it in to town by sunset! We all took a stroll through Headlands State Park and the view was just phenomenal. The crisp fresh air in Mendocino is just one of a kind paired with the relaxing sounds of the waves.

img_0313

During our weekend trip we stayed in a beautiful cottage that had an ocean front view. Every morning waking up to the sun rise over the ocean was so peaceful and relaxing.

img_0306

We also had a few little deer friends that liked to watch the view with us.

img_0304

Another fun part about Mendocino is all of the cute little shops that they have down town. We spent an entire day shopping our little hearts out. To top our afternoon off we ate lunch at a cute little place called Flow Restaurant and Lounge. The view from here was just breathtaking and the food was super yummy!

img_0312

We made sure to make it back to our cozy cottage just in time for the sunset on Saturday evening. The lighting was just perfect for photo’s. After a long day of shopping, relaxing and watching the sunset on the coast was just what we needed.

img_0321

img_0308

img_0303

We all shared so many giggles, reminisced a bit and made so many new memories.

img_0309

With a view like that in our backyard we never wanted the weekend to end. Looking forward to our next reunion already!

Cheers!

MOMA Visit

Hello lovelies! We hope you had a wonderful week and are ready for this upcoming weekend. We were so lucky to have one of PB&J’s former girls, Kayla and her boyfriend Bryan shoot these awesome shots! They visited the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) which is located on 151 3rd St, San Francisco, CA. It is a must to visit. Here’s what they had to say about it:

img_5782

The MOMA recently reopened this year after a three-year long expansion and it did not disappoint

img_5898

img_5924

img_5892

One of our favorites from the museum was the living wall.

img_5883

img_5962

The wall is filled with greenery and succulents spanning 4,400 square feet wide and 30 feet tall. It’s the largest in the United States.

img_5952

img_5811

Another must-see is the Anthony Hernandez exhibit which is open now through January 1, 2017. This L.A. photographer captures black and white, and color photography from the 70’s and 80’s. Shot with 35mm to large-format cameras, his photography is a candid look into the streets of L.A., Rome and Italy. He vividly captures the lives of working/middle class, homeless and the beauty in everyday lives.
