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!) […]

Stripes & Leather

 The Lunar New Year is coming up (it’s the year of the Ram!) and I’m so excited to partner with Westfield Valley Fair to celebrate! Vietnamese New Year was a special time of year for me growing up: it was family tradition to celebrate at my grandparents’ house and wish all of our aunts and […]


 Working in (and in some ways, for) the same town that I live in has its obvious benefits – I’m just moments away from our cute downtown/waterfront area where most of my work meetings occur. I do miss the fun ferry commute I used to take to SF, as well as the bustling streets of […]


 Our recent vacation didn’t involve too much shopping (although it couldn’t be avoided in Hong Kong!), plus packing carry-on-baggage-only meant that I was already limited in space. But for this skirt I figured I could manage the space problem. Work has been nonstop since coming home (no surprise there). Amid meetings in town, a backlog […]

Last Day at Sea

 Two weeks after landing in Hong Kong, we were finally at the end of our journey down the coast of Vietnam (but not without a quick visit to our final destination, Saigon!). This was an entirely unique trip (by sea!) for me and I absolutely loved the experience! There were one or two days of […]

Nha Trang

 6th stop: Nha Trang, Vietnam. Finally, the world-famous beaches of Nha Trang. This is my happy place: sun, sand, water and waves. I definitely could have enjoyed several more days of this! PS: This is my new favorite swimsuit! I’d love it in white too – the fabric is thick, stretchy and the full swimsuit is […]

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: Stripes

 At sea in the Gulf of Tonkin. I brought no heels on this trip (not a single inch!), so I’ve been living in these flats, these sandals, and these sneakers. Relaxed and simple is what I had in mind for some time off! *** Sweater – Banana Republic (here) Swimsuit – Chloe (here) Shorts – […]

Halong Bay

 2nd stop: Halong Bay, Vietnam. This post is heavy on the scenery and light on outfit photos… For one, it was the first time I’d set foot in a kayak (but now I’m convinced it won’t be my last!). And we kayaked through incredible caves and into vast, serene coves. And were surrounded by this […]


 The husband gifted me with some tennis lessons to start the year and I can’t wait to get going! The last few times we’ve played, my chief concern has been to hit the ball… period.  Hopefully in a few months’ time I’ll be able to hit the ball at the right time and to the […]

 A simple look for work today (and I’ve really loved wearing/re-wearing these trousers – they have the perfect amount of stretch!).  I’m getting excited for Christmas (and ok, I can’t lie: my excitement is in part because my sister shipped Lucia this present – can’t wait to see her face when she opens it)! If you’re traveling […]


 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 […]

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 […]


 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 […]


 Sale season is the best time to “invest” in classic tailored pieces… and as you can see with this new dress I’m wearing, I finally did some sale season “investing” over the weekend! I always seek out pencil skirts (like this one under $120), trousers (like this gorgeous navy pair), blouses (like this one from Equipment), blazers […]


 Happy weekend! I spent Thursday evening at Domaine Chandon in Yountville learning how to make delicious sparkling cocktails (strawberries and summer savory was my favorite!), and enjoying dinner and the company of some wonderful people. It was the perfect way to kick off a long weekend. Hope you’re enjoying yours! *** Blazer – Theory (sold […]


 Happy Monday! I had such a gorgeous weekend at home! We “picnicked” in shade on our deck for a big part of the day and made our weekly visit to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh fruit and flowers. Cheered for the US team for the World Cup and enjoyed dinner at a new local […]

Summer Suit

 When PayPal and Neiman Marcus asked me to contribute to their summer style guide, I knew exactly what I wanted to share: my summer suit. This version might not be for office hours (although it could easily be with an ankle length pant or even a longer bermuda-style short, depending on the dress code!) but it’s certainly […]


 Happy Monday! I’m sporting tiny little bangs now (the result of my postpartum hair loss and the forever-long growing out process!!) – and although they look a little haphazard, I’m pretty glad they’re no longer sticking straight up. Phew. PS: You know that you have a stylish best friend (since jr. high school!) when you […]

Sun & Swim

 In anticipation of our first summer in our new home and sun-filled deck, we’ve been visiting nurseries and picking out plants, planters and soil… Testing out our green thumb (and hoping we can keep the plants alive and happy!). I’ve also picked up some new sun & swim gear at Nordstrom (this crisp white cover-up, […]


 Happy Monday! Had a wonderful weekend celebrating our town’s 50th anniversary on Friday (huge street party, food trucks, fireworks, live music, dancing on main street – so much fun!), enjoying sushi at our favorite local spot Sushi Ran on Saturday, and (because we saved the “best” for last) running what seemed like a million errands […]
