Casual Tuesday

 Battling a cold right now so between my sneezing fits and stuffed up nose I’m wrapping myself up in this cozy blanket scarf. My husband had the same cold before me so I know I’m up for an interesting few days ahead! Items I’ve worn over the last few months are finally on sale, I’ve rounded […]

 It’s that time of year again: SALE season! I always have my eye on a few things hoping that they’ll make it to a markdown (or two) which would make it that much sweeter of a find for me. I’m a deal-finder at heart, that’s for sure! Here’s what’s on my holiday wishlist (at 40% […]

 Good morning and happy Friday! I recently partnered with Ricardo Beverly Hills and their new Aileron collection luggage to help me with my packing last week for the Napa Valley Film Festival! I was excited to see these cases in person and I was even more excited when I opened them up and traveled with […]

Dots and Studs

 In the perfect Fall outfit for work but dreaming of a Fall weekend in cozy sweaters and denim. A few of my latest finds at Sezane (they’ve just nailed the effortless, romantic Parisian chic look!): a cashmere blend sweater in bold red but with soft, feminine ruffles here a romantic take on the lace-up sweater with satin ribbon lacing […]

Blush and Olive

 My top favorite moments during the Napa Valley Film Festival: Watching Skid Row Marathon the documentary – and being moved to tears. An incredibly inspiring story with an incredibly inspiring group of people. Learn more here. Participating in a blind tasting of wines led by some of the best known sommeliers. It was awesome to hear […]

 Happy Friday! I’m kicking off the weekend early in Napa for the Napa Valley Film Festival: film, food and wine are all things I’ll happily enjoy. I packed this gorgeous beret for the occasion because if there’s one accessory to add this season, it is definitely a classic beret. More accessories at Nordstrom I’m eyeing: […]

 Good morning and happy Wednesday! Finally getting to bring out my suede loafers (which I picked up on super sale a few months ago), replacing the white raffia ones from Summer. I absolutely love the Gucci loafers that are everywhere (I’m constantly eyeing them but never quite took the plunge), but I love that this pair […]

Olive and Black

 Finally getting to wear my ultra sheer tights, and it’s going to be hard not wear it with everything this season (while the weather is not too cold anyway)! We enjoyed a quick little overnighter in the city at the lovely Hotel Nikko, which used to be just a walk downhill from where we used to live. […]

 In a number of classics at a great price point: a silk shirt for $98, a cashmere scarf for $150 and sustainably made denim for $68. Two thumbs up from me! PS: Two additional words: Bruno Mars. Such an awesome night out for his concert on Friday – I’m a fan! The weekend flew by […]

 Re-wearing some recently worn pieces in different ways. There is nothing more classic for work than navy and I’ve always coveted all things in navy. It’s such a beautiful alternative to basic black! Happy Friday and hope you have a great weekend! PS: Picked up this $69 sweater – my first off-the-shoulder sweater and love […]

 I’m experimenting with a mix of colors and bold patterns today, which was inspired by this amazing coat when I first saw it at W Concept. I don’t have anything like it in my closet: a little sporty but luxe at the same time. It also has a detachable faux fur collar for those days that need […]

 Last week, Biossance swept me off my feet (literally) for a little getaway: we spent a day at their lab in Emeryville learning all about their sustainable techniques for developing their clean beauty products, and a day of relaxation at Half Moon Bay taking in the gorgeous scenery. I have been a longtime fan of their 100% Squalane […]

 One of the items on my Fall list was a duster cardigan – something that can look polished and relaxed at the same time. I found the one by Halston Heritage at Neiman Marcus. Wearing it with a dress here but it will easily work over jeans, leggings, or even joggers for travel days. While […]

 A bold pairing in a streamlined silhouette today. I liked that they’re two unexpected patterns (a moody floral with a more masculine check print). I also liked that the dress (at $49) reminded me of Hawaii in the winter… and now I’m dreaming of a mid-winter getaway with the family. Sigh. I recently mentioned on […]

The Handsome

 Good morning and happy Monday! I’ve been so excited to share my latest discovery: The Handsome. It’s one thing to fall in love with everything that you see on a site – another to actually receive everything and love it all even more! The fabrics are gorgeous and luxe, and the fit is perfect. If […]

 I’ve had this belt for years… I “borrowed” it from my mom’s closet maybe 8 years ago and, not surprisingly, it never made its way back home. I’m looking forward to the day Lucia starts hunting through my closet! Thought I’d share a few things about what I’m wearing in this post: This coat: I […]

 The blazer of the season: it’s oversized but still slim, longer past the hips and in prints that are borrowed from the boys. Sign me right up! What are your weekend plans? I’ll be spending some time with the Biossance team (more about that soon!), getting together with friends to kick off Halloween (Lucia and […]

In Memphis

 Let’s talk about the food in Memphis! In just 48 hours we: devoured BBQ, the Memphis way, at Central BBQ (tasting everything from a plate of 3 meats and some sides, but the biggest surprise was the banana pudding dessert) feasted on southern-style courses at Itta Bena above BB Kings Blues Club (I ordered the duck and […]

 Happy Wednesday! The last 48 hours have been a blur… if you want to see what I’ve been up to, please see my Instagram Stories before it’s gone! Besides an inspiring tour of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we also got a chance to experience Memphis food (BBQ! Fried Chicken! Sweet Potato Pancakes!). And a […]

La Liste

 Finally! The ultimate cool-girl Parisian brand, Sezane, has launched La Liste: a collection of timeless items they’ll be continually restocking on site. And they’re classic pieces so, of course, they are right up my alley: I have this ruffled blouse in ecru – it’s just as pretty in person and fits nice and slim throughout (usually in […]

 I didn’t have an “occasion” for a dress when I found this lovely velvet one at Nordstrom (it’s only $148!), but funny how that works sometimes because soon after it was hanging in my closet my husband and I were able to enjoy a rare date night out in the city. I’ve been pairing flats with everything lately, […]

 Sweet button detailing down the arms of this sweater were a perfect match for romantic pleats, and I threw in an oversized denim jacket for some contrast. *** Denim jacket – Sezane (here | also picked up this gorgeous forest green coat while in Paris at their L’appartement!)

Cognac, France

 It’s hard to believe, but after all of my trips to France (and even living in Paris for 5 weeks when I was 17), I had never once ventured out to the countryside. My days in Cognac were so memorable and the scenery was just breathtaking – it’s making me crave a visit to all of the other […]

 Good morning and happy Monday! Back home from my whirlwind trip to Paris and ready to jump back into things. I didn’t nap all day yesterday, so I’m crossing fingers for minimal jet-lag… do you have any tried and true jet-lag cures? *** Trousers – H&M (here | similar styles: here and here) Shirt – Madewell (the […]

at Le Logis

 Bonjour from the countryside in beautiful Cognac! I’ve been here less than 48 hours and it has been an absolute dream. Waking up in a chateau, spending our days at Le Logis on its picture-perfect grounds, and tasting a lot of delicious drinks a la Grey Goose. My friends and family will attest to the […]
