i'll have what she's having...

I'm all for my heels but lately, I've been craving flats more and more.  The pointier and strappier, the better. Oh, and that striped Nicholas Kirkwood pair doesn't hurt either.

sunday afternoon

Dress: Calypso St. Barth; Hat: J.Crew; Sandals: Witchery; Bag: Everlane; Jacket: Old Navy; Sunglasses: Chloe (on sale!)

As part of my New Year's resolutions, I really want to make a conscious effort to disconnect more this year and try to find a better work, life, and yes, even social media balance. What I'm finding is that a little bit of routine (and a lot of self control) goes a long way. Lately, I've been making myself stick to a late Sunday afternoon regimen -- and it's relatively simple actually. I'll head out to Crissy field or Fort Funston for a little beach time with Elvis, usually with a good book or magazine and catch the sunset. 

As trivial as it may sound, sometimes you have to remind yourself that you don't need to check your email for a few hours -- the world will (and definitely does!) keep spinning. What I love about disconnecting on Sundays in particular is that it's extremely easy to just "get a jump start" on the week ahead on Sunday afternoons (which my guy affectionately calls my 'Sunday blues'), that you end up short changing yourself valuable down time. In general, I feel far more refreshed and ready to tackle my week after I take just those few hours for myself.

I'm curious -- what do you guys do to disconnect?
