California Dreaming

by | Oct 27, 2016 | Fashion, Style | 4 comments

Monarch Beach, California, is seriously one of my most favorite places on the planet! I had the pleasure of visiting Monaco this past May with my girlfriends, (which was definitely a close second), but there is just something about this place in Orange County. When my plane touches down, I just feel like I am “home”. I get this amazing burst of energy, as soon as the Cali sun hits my skin and I inhale the ocean and feel the slight breeze! I always say to my husband; I was born in Canada, I love living in Texas, but want to retire in California! It’s just so magical for me!

This summer Alana and Lindsey came out to Monarch Beach to visit my family. (We rent a house there for a month each summer to escape the Houston heat) This has been a tradition in my husband’s family forever! With the gorgeous California landscape as a backdrop, we shot many of the photos you’ve been seeing out there, and this particular evening, after shooting during the day, we headed out for a fabulous girls night, starting with dinner at the Monarch Beach Resort (formerly the St. Regis Monarch Beach). Over  cocktails and amazing dishes, we started the plans for the relaunch of ST that you are seeing today!

One thing I love to do when I get together with my friends is talk about future goals, in this case, we talked about what we wanted to see for the next year ahead for Sandra Tiffany, and we set some personal goals too! I think it is so important to put your dreams out into the universe. I have witnessed so many times in my own life, these manifestations coming back to me. I believe it is a form of asking God to lend a hand and really sets you up to take the necessary steps to achieve your dreams!

In these photos, I am wearing 7 for all mankind jeans, my blouse is Intermix’s brand, shoes are Saint Laurent and my cute clip board is from Target and the brand is called Sugar Paper.
