Flared

 Happy Monday! I’m not ready to let go of my skinny jeans just yet, but I am ready to throw some flare-leg options into the mix (see below for more!). Hope you had a great weekend! *** Turtleneck – Marc Jacobs (scored at the very end of the fall/winter sales, similar here 40% off) Jeans […]

Flats

 Happy Monday! Living in flats lately and my feet are thanking me. I’m juggling two big projects at work and both are on very strict deadlines – time to get extra-productive (and extra caffeinated!)! Hope you have a great start to your week! PS: Maybe I’m due for a beauty update (because I’d love to […]

New Weekend Uniform

 It’s been a crazy last 48 hours involving a trip to the ER and emergency surgery for my hubby – but thankfully all is well! I’ll  have to keep this short and sweet but I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting! *** Jacket – thanks to Rebecca Minkoff (here) Dress […]

Olive

 Back to work and prepping for another big work meeting on Wednesday. I’ve been taking midweek tennis classes (so fun!) which have helped me feel better balanced and overall healthier. Chasing around a toddler on off-duty hours is a lot of work, but it’s nothing like walking 2 miles per day (which is what I […]

Black/White

 Happy Monday – hope you had a great weekend! *** Jacket – thanks to Emerson Fry (here) Turtleneck – Ann Taylor Pants – Miu Miu (found them at a Prada outlet, very similar here) Scarf – thanks to Equipment (here) Bracelet – Kate Spade (here) Flats – Celine (similar here) Purse – Celine Sunglasses – […]

Navy

 Lately, this (or some variant of this) has been my work uniform on days where I haven’t posted an outfit. I’ve been working behind the scenes or from home a lot, so comfort has been key. And I’ve been wearing these flats nonstop – it has made my wardrobe feel instantly fresh and new. *** […]

Olive

 Dress-over-pants: would you do it?    Thought it was time to give it a try… and it felt more in my comfort zone in a tone-on-tone color scheme. Our weekend was perfect – not too much to do or accomplish other than quality time together outdoors (sunny and high 60s). Hope yours was wonderful too! […]

New York 1

 It’s always wonderful to be in New York, even when it’s at its coldest!! I’ll definitely share more soon – hope you had a nice weekend! *** Coat – Fleurette (just picked up a light springtime version in navy here for under $150!) Dress – Tibi (love so many of their new Spring arrivals here!) […]

Hoi An & Quy Nhon

 4th & 5th stops: Hoi An & Quy Nhon. Hoi An is a wonderful, charming little city. We toured the countryside by bicycle, peddling through narrow pathways between rice paddies and along the riverfront scenery. It was enough to work up an appetite for a 9 course meal in town (spicy clam soup! crispy fish […]

At Sea: Romper

 Matchy-matchy for another day at sea. Missing Lucia like crazy, but this 2-week vacation is a rare one for us – we’re making the most of it! Happy Friday, hope you have a wonderful weekend! *** Romper – thanks to Ted Baker (here and here. Also: they re-opened their San Francisco Union Square boutique after a […]

Winter White & Camel

 Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’m freshly bruised (and sore!) from another fun day-after Christmas family game of floor hockey and thoroughly filled with holiday meals and treats… I’ve even managed to fit in a bit of shopping! Here are my favorite finds so far: this cut-out dress (which was an additional 30% off […]

Long Weekend

 Celebrating the start of an extra long weekend with an extra comfy outfit. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas Eve! *** Sweater – J.Crew Tunic blouse – Vince (here) Jeans – thanks to 7 For All Mankind (love – so comfy! here) Sneakers – Superga (here) Purse – thanks to Everlane (here) Bracelet – Kate […]

Classic

 Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to be sharing a full look from British heritage brand L.K.Bennett today. Their pieces are luxurious, timeless, and elegant: all things I love.  Heading out to a few meetings before joining in on some holiday festivities – hope you have a wonderful day! PS: This is worth watching if you’re interested […]

High/Low

 Happy Monday! After a stormy week, we enjoyed a brief (and much appreciated) bit of sunshine over the weekend. I’m in panic mode for holiday shopping (have to meet those shipping deadlines!), so having a dry day or two to run from store to store at the outdoor mall was helpful. Although every year I […]

White and Gray

 Last year, my husband and I bought Lucia separate holiday gifts so that we could surprise each other (she was, after all, only 5 months old!). Now at 16 months, she loves opening presents, getting mail is her favorite time of day (and she reminds us if we haven’t gotten it yet!), and she loves […]

Casual Friday

 Happy Sunday! After an intense and tiring workweek, I had only one thing planned for this weekend: relaxation. That and some extra cuddle time with Lucia. Hope you’re enjoying yours! *** Turtleneck – J.Crew (here) Jacket – thanks to MM.LaFleur (here) Jeans – Mother Denim (similar here with the ankle zip too!) Bracelet – Kate […]

Running Around

 Happy Wednesday! I’ve been running around nonstop for a big work event so I’ll keep it short and sweet today… Thank you for visiting! *** Jacket – Diane von Furstenberg (still available here for 40% off!) Sweater – J.Crew (on sale and an extra 30% off here) Jeans – thanks to Citizens of Humanity (here) Bracelet – […]

Crisp

 A crisp, extra-long white shirt by Vince at Nordstrom feels refreshing (and refreshingly summer-like). Although I’m wearing it solo for San Diego’s weather here, I’ll be layering it with sweaters and scarves for San Francisco. White shirts are the ultimate essential. Hope you’re having a great week so far! *** Shirt – Vince at Nordstrom […]

Mini

 When in San Diego for a 76-degree Thanksgiving weekend: wear the leather mini. We enjoyed a ‘cousins’ night out in Del Mar – the kind that made your belly ache from laughter and that ended with french fries and chicken tenders at the local late-night restaurant. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! PS: Scored a […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

 We’re having a wonderful time so far with friends and family – happy, happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!! PS: here are a few of my must-visit Black Friday sale sites: this DvF embellished jacket from the Saks sale (that I’ve worn on the blog a few times) is now 40% off!! this Manolo Blahnik pump from […]

Thanksgiving Travel

 My Thanksgiving travel outfit consisted of my stretchiest jeans, a simple tee and this navy Vince wrap sweater coat recently purchased at Nordstrom. It’s warm and cozy like a blanket and easy enough to take on/off through the airport and on the plane. Lucia loves playing hide-and-seek with it – and anything that can keep […]

Sleeveless

 I can’t help but fall back on this simple recipe all too often: a white blouse (an essential), a pencil skirt (in this case, in leather or faux leather to add a little interest) and a trench coat (cool details on this one made it hard to resist). I enjoyed a quick little getaway to […]

Dressed

 I’m not huge fan of one-hit wonders for holiday dresses (although there’s always a good reason for one of those sometimes!). I like a dress that’s going to be wearable long after the holiday decorations have disappeared (and bonus points if they can work for work too!). This L’Agence dress from Nordstrom is pretty on […]

Belted

 Belted, for a change. And I can’t kick my current obsession with all things sleeveless (for easy layering!): I recently scored this sleeveless trench version for 60% off! It’s now sold out, but still available on sale here and here. Never one to resist a good sale… *** Coat – Fleurette (sold out but similar version under […]

Stripes

 My tendency to buy stripes doesn’t end with me – Lucia has amassed an equally impressive amount (striped shirts, striped sweaters, striped leggings…striped zebras!). This sweater had a unique neckline (not quite a turtleneck, but kind of a turtleneck) (aka mockneck) and it had a touch of cashmere. Stripes and cashmere? Always welcome in my closet! *** […]

Pop of Color

 I’m finally seeing the light at the end of a tunnel for a big work project: important milestones have been reached and elements are finally falling into place. Don’t you love that feeling? No time for celebration just yet… although if there were to be a prize right now, surely it could be this gorgeous thing? […]

Going Long

 An extra long coat has been on my wish list since last year and I finally found one that fit the bill: a Loro Piana by Fleurette at Nordstrom. It’s going to be the winter stand-in for my lightweight Tibi trench (which I reached for over and over again this past Spring/Summer!). The camel color is absolutely […]

Fringe

 Added a little fringe to my closet in the form of this top – I thought it was such an easy (and wallet-friendly) way to test drive the latest trend. One thing’s for sure: Lucia’s a fan (more for her fingers to tug on!). PS: Thank you so, so much to the Tory Burch team […]

Cape

 Happy Monday! I’m so excited to be part of ShopStyle’s first Trend Book: a 36-page inspiration-filled holiday catalog mailed to one million ShopStyle shoppers this past weekend! For the feature, I was invited to style the cape (one of this season’s hottest search terms) and instantly fell for this one (now on sale!) – it’s heavier and warmer than […]

Navy

 Happy Wednesday! Thanks for visiting and hope you’re having a wonderful week! PS: A lot of my recently worn items have gone on sale! This white silk blouse is an essential and it’s under $150 (I’m considering buying a back-up…), this plaid vest is surprisingly versatile and now 40% off, this leather moto jacket is […]

Burberry

 I have a soft spot for Burberry and this iconic trench is just one of the many reasons why. It’s where I look when I’m at Nordstrom (or browsing online!) and on the hunt for something extra special. My favorites for him, her and kids this holiday season, below! *** Trench – Burberry at Nordstrom (here) Blouse – thanks to […]

B&W

 Halloween was so much fun – Lucia was in awe of everything. She was most excited about an adult Gumby and a toddler zebra (she calls her stuffed version “bee-bra”). And she didn’t seem to mind her own costume, surprisingly! Another weekend down, another workweek ahead! Happy Monday! *** Leather jacket – IRO thanks to Intermix […]

Great Lengths

 Playing with proportions in this outfit and pairing lengths I would have never dared to pair years ago (wasn’t it one of the ‘rules’?). As it seems nowadays, there aren’t any rules. And I love that. *** Vest – Rachel Comey (here and here) Blouse – Theory (here) Trousers – Zara (from 2 years ago, […]

Embellished

 I was looking through my closet a while ago and thinking about the special and unique items that I’d love to give Lucia one day (“vintage” by then, of course). Among those: a citrine ring (which is engraved with her name), a floral pencil skirt (which I wore when my husband proposed to me), and […]

Weekend Trench

 Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend! *** Turtleneck sweater – J.Crew (here) Trench – thanks to Everlane (here) Boyfriend jeans – J.Crew (here) Watch – Tory Burch (here) Bracelet – Kate Spade (here) Heels – Manolo Blahnik (here) Sunglasses – Celine Purse – Celine

Pink

 At 14 months, Lucia is a bundle of energy and she’s learning her words so quickly! She’s also starting to figure out what it means to retaliate – teaching a little one “principles” is a lot harder than we imagined! Loving this age and so completely in love… Can’t wait for the weekend! Hope you […]

Classic

 Classic is what I’m drawn to, so it’s no surprise that I’ve had my eye on this particular watch from Tory Burch’s newly launched line at Nordstrom. I love the gold hardware and size… It’s classic but also a little bold at the same time – perfect. PS: I’ve had this skirt for a long […]

Plaid

 With a tough week behind me, I’m looking forward to restoring a little bit of balance this week. That includes some park time with Lucia (big-kids slide! tire swing! see-saw! and endless stairs!), park time with the dogs (the kind with lots of other dogs, of course), and perhaps even a game of tennis or […]

Trousers

 These trousers must be about 8 years old by now but I just can’t part with them (here’s a post from 3 years ago!). They’re the perfect fit in the perfect fabric (they don’t wrinkle too much, don’t stretch out too much, and when I was traveling the country nonstop for my previous job, they […]

Silver

 Last week, I woke up in NYC (dreamy!) and spent the evening with the wonderful LAGOS team to celebrate their My LAGOS My Way campaign. I’m wearing what happens to be three of my favorites by LAGOS: the bold caviar bracelet is a statement-maker (perfect with this dress!), the thinner caviar bracelet is something that I can […]

Weekend Casual

 Today’s a big day at work… so in stark contrast to these images from the weekend, I’m buttoned up in business attire. It’s going to be a long one! Hope your week is off to a great start! PS: The annual Shopbop Friends & Family sale starts today! It’s a great time to pick up […]

Monday

 Happy Monday! I’d been searching high and low for a new gold-tone necklace and this was exactly what I had in mind! Love how it’s simultaneously bold and minimalistic. It definitely ups the game on a simple tee and skirt combo. Hope you had a great weekend! PS: I’ve been obsessed with contouring (a la […]

Ruffle

 Not all sweaters are created equal, and this one certainly stands out on its own! I’ve slowly built a closet of classics over time, but more and more I’ve found myself craving those extra-special, big-impact (yet still timeless!) pieces. Which means: I’ve been scouring Nordstrom’s Via C department (for brands like Carven, 3.1 Phillip Lim, […]

Denim Days

 Good morning! I have a quick little trip to NYC this week so I’ve been running around with some last minute must-dos for work and home. Exactly what denim days were for. Hope you’re having a great week so far! PS: The 7FAM Slim Illusion line is, without a doubt, my favorite dark blue denim […]

Burgundy

 Happy Monday! Pulling out my favorite fall color in a few different textures (leather and knits all season long!). Hope you have a great start to your week! *** Sweater – Zara (here) Blouse – Theory (here) Skirt – ALC (old, but similar here) Loafers – thanks to Everlane (love them! here) Purse – Chanel […]

Relaxed

 Tried something new recently: a more relaxed denim fit. I don’t think I could say goodbye to my skinny jeans just yet, but I do love this change of pace! With several major deadlines looming, my work has shifted into high gear… so although the denim might be relaxed, my workspace certainly isn’t…! Hope you’re […]

Easy Layers

 Good morning! It’s so wonderful to pull out my classic trench again – ’tis the season! My week is off to a crazy start and meetings are piling up – time for a much needed coffee. Thanks for visiting! PS: Great to have discovered Goodnight Macaroon (where this dress is from)! The sweater/skirt layers are […]

Navy

 Happy Monday! Had a busy weekend with the in-laws: sushi, a game of tennis, a (really good) Cal vs. Colorado football game, food trucks… all fun things. Hope you had a wonderful weekend too! PS: I was so thrilled to be included in the SF Chronicle’s Top 100 Shops issue this year (wearing this dress […]

Friday

 New season, new skincare routine? I think yes! Over the last few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to try the full suite of brightening products from Equitance, a Japanese skincare brand with over 18 years of research in dark spots and discolorations (& recently launched in the US!). The timing for me could not have […]

Gray & Blue

 Good morning! Lucia’s almost 14 months now and she is a bundle of energy – so much fun! Restaurants have been a challenge, so when we do eat out, you can find us among the 5:30 crowd. Her vocabulary grows every day (down, out, belly, dog, nana for banana, hair, door…), as are her animal […]

Sweater Dress

 Happy Monday! I didn’t do too much shopping while I was in New York, but I did make sure to pop into the Tibi boutique in Soho – such a treat to see so much Tibi in one place (although I love that Tibi is now also available online here)! I bought this tie-waist sweater […]

New York (Three)

 My final outfit from New York – although I promptly changed into these sneakers for the last bit of exploring before heading out for the airport. A couple of wonderful discoveries on this trip: Momofuku Saam Bar (pork belly buns!) and their Milk bar across the street (compost cookie!), The Ship (for a relaxing drink […]

New York (Two)

 Packing for New York was fun (after all, I’ve only had a few solo trips since Lucia’s arrival!) – I had stumbled upon this gorgeous leather dress and knew it would be one of my outfits for the trip. Layering with a simple silk blouse is an easy go-to (and because I get so much […]

Navy & Leopard

 Sharing another new piece from Tory Burch’s Fall collection purchased at Nordstrom: this navy metallic knit skirt. Just the right amount of shimmer for some texture and a knit that feels substantial and warm enough for boots in winter! This has to be my favorite Tory Burch season yet – you’ll see why in the […]

New York (One)

 Hello New York! There is definitely a magic about this city – love it. As soon as I arrived, I had the opportunity to enjoy my first Monique Lhuillier show, then headed to Jill Stuart, Rebecca Taylor and Tibi the following morning. What a whirlwind 24 hours! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! *** Blouse […]

Prep

 Happy Friday! I’m spending the next 4 days or so in New York – can’t wait to see friends new and old, experience a handful of shows and explore the city with Kristine. It’s going to be a fun girl’s trip! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for visiting! *** […]

White

 Leaving for New York in just a few days and so much on my to-do list still! Hope you’re having a great week! *** Skirt – Nicholas (here) Blouse – Equipment (here) Necklace – thanks to Gorjana (here) Bracelet – Kate Spade (here) Ring – Elizabeth and James (here) Heels – Manolo Blahnik (on sale […]

Burgundy

 There’s no doubt about it: when it comes to clothing and shoes, my favorite season is Fall. I love the rich hues, the layers, the cozy-factor… And one of the most inspiring Fall shows I experienced last February was the Tory Burch show – so excited to finally get my hands on a piece from […]

Navy

 I think navy is the ultimate color for a working girl’s wardrobe. There’s a reason why I’ve collected all of my favorite handbags in navy: my Celine luggage tote (Anthracite, a gray-navy), my Sophie Hulme tote (Midnight, a deep almost-black navy), and this Celine box bag (Classic navy). I love that navy means business, but […]

Weekend Casual

 Happy Monday! Spending a full day in Pebble Beach on Sunday (for the Concours d’Elegance!) meant that all of our errands fell on Saturday. Running around (and after Lucia) is infinitely easier in these comfy sneakers – they’ve been such a worthwhile investment! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! *** Sleeveless trench – Ann Taylor […]
