California Girl Carolyn Murphy's Style

I've admired Carolyn Murphy's homes, personal style, and green living ethic for a long time. 


This home was featured in old House & Garden. I really miss that magazine.




This single mom gardens and has her own chickens too.

Another home she had was featured in Vogue a few years back...



This Provencal inspired house was designed by Schuyler Samperton.




Love!


These two photos Vogue.



She's very much the California girl and surfs.


I always love her clothes and how she puts things together.


Fashion wise she tends towards classic shapes. 

She seems to wear a lot of black and white.

 He's a cute accessory. :D








Makes me want a white dress in my closet.


I found this article on Into the Gloss where she shares what she uses on her lovely skin. Even though she's a spokesmodel for Estee Lauder she admits using Cetaphil, Carmex and Spectrum coconut oil from the supermarket as well as Lauder's Advanced Night Repair, which she swears by. I'm thinking I might need to try some myself looking at her skin!!

  1. She's one of my favourite blonds and think she has uptown and California properties which is rare for one person!

  5. How fun to learn more about this very stylish, and beautiful, fellow California girl, Kim. The images are lovely..simple and yet elegant. I can see why you are a fan of her style-her fashion is fabulous. My mom swears by Estee Lauder products for skin as well...I'm seeing beautiful results all around so maybe it's time to give it a try. Fun post! Hope you are enjoying your time off with family.

  8. She is so beautiful...wish I had that complexion! I use Cetaphil and my skin does not look like that ha ha. However I will say it's a lot better since I started using it a couple years ago. Some other cleansers were just too harsh for my mature skin.

    Love her style, thanks for sharing.
