Wrap

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend! *** Dress – MM.LaFleur (here | loving their new arrivals: this […]

Weekend to Workweek (part two)

 With a quick swap of my sandals for pumps, my weekend bag for my work tote, and a gray oversized blazer to pull it all together, I’ve gone from weekend to workweek in a hurry. Workwear wishlisting in classic workwear colors: In navy: these pleated and belted pants and this amazing coat (similar to my […]

Metallic Pleats

 Remember my recent post about pleated skirts? They’re still on my mind apparently – loved this metallic one the moment I saw it! I’ll be pairing it with oversized, long cozy sweaters and ankle boots as the temperatures cool. A busy week and a surprise visit from my cousin – things have been nonstop! In a good […]

Quick Stop

 Good morning and happy Thursday! This place behind me? My favorite quick bite in the city for Vietnamese sandwiches (get the combo) and salt & pepper fries. Craving some right now actually…! At Bun Mee on Fillmore. PS: I shared this photo of Lucia and I recently – a sweet gift from the cutest Mini […]

Getting Cozy

 It’s September so I think I can safely share my excitement over all of Fall’s textures: wool, cashmere, suede…right?? And San Francisco is essentially Fall-weather year round, so I get so much wear out of these splurge-worthy pieces. Here are some of my designer must-haves for the cooler temps this season: A wear-with-anything camel coat. In […]

Pleats

 Good morning and happy Friday! I’m convinced that a pleated skirt is a wardrobe staple – over the years I’ve worn several favorites over and over again. Most of mine have been of the chiffon variety (perfect for spring and summer) and I was sold the moment I saw this lightweight wool cashmere version for 80% […]

Switch

 Happy Tuesday! Excited about today’s post because I feel like I have a whole new closet of designer jewelry! …and not because I went on a shopping spree… I joined Switch. To describe it in just 5 words: it’s Netflix for designer jewelry. It’s giving me access to jewelry I’ve always “heart-eyed”, have wanted to […]

ciao

 A playful way to start the week! Red is the color this season and seeing all of the red-hued new arrivals inspired me to pull out this old skirt – one of my favorite sale finds from years ago. A reminder that when I find a classic on sale like this one, it’s a worthy investment. Thank […]

Weekend

 My weekend task? We need more green in our house! The struggle is: how do we keep them alive? We’ve fared pretty well with our outdoor plants, but they’re pretty resilient so I’m not sure how much credit we can take for that. Some indoor plant research is in order! Do you have a green […]

Taupe

 Good morning and happy Wednesday! In all shades of taupe today wearing the skirt of the summer: a ruffle wrap skirt. Lots of great options out there but I really liked this one at $82, plus it’ll work for Fall with a light sweater tucked instead. PS: Did you see the eclipse? Luck had it […]

Fall List

 It’s mid-August and we’re already seeing signs of Fall in San Francisco – heavy fog and we’re lucky if we get temperatures in the 70s. San Francisco is made for Fall fashion, and it’s not a coincidence that Fall is my favorite season for clothing. A few things that are on my must-have list at […]

Tiered

 A brand new week! I was ambitious when I mentioned trying to take a real bath over the weekend… it seems even with a quiet weekend time manages to slip away. Hope that’s not the case with my to-do list this week, it’s a long one! Thanks for visiting and happy Monday! *** Skirt – Zimmermann […]

Camel

 Looking forward to a quiet family weekend – the kind that involves a lot of cuddles with Lucia, walks with the dogs and slow easy mornings. We are not morning people so weekdays are (literally) a rude awakening. I might even try to carve out some time for a real bath – that would be […]

Everyday Ballet

 Lucia got her fill of ballet this summer with a number of ballet camps and classes. Seeing her put on her ballet shoes reminded me of mine from when I was young and practiced at a little studio in Fremont with a wonderful woman named Yoko. All of those years taught me that how you […]

Alaska (Three)

 Exploring Alaska with my little one – a FOUR-YEAR-OLD now(!). She’s opinionated about what she wears (dresses, always – not sure how I managed to get her in just a top and pants for this day!), how her hair is done (I clearly need to work on my braiding skills), and which stuffed animal joins […]

Alaska (Two)

 A stop-off at Ward Lake on the way to our cousin’s house for the evening get-together with our 40(!) family members. I still can’t get over the neverending sea of trees – so much beauty in this place, and yet we’re only seeing .00001% of what Alaska has to offer (it’s the size of 3 […]

Navy

 Stepping into the week in an easy one-piece wonder (it’s the way to go in the summer!). I had ordered this new chain for my current favorite bag ages ago (or what feels like ages ago!) – so worth the wait. It “dresses” it up, and I’ll be trying it on a few other purses as […]
