 Bayside living at its best: a little preppy and a little beachy. I’ve loved living in this sailing community called Tiburon, even though I’ve not yet stepped on board a sailboat. But I can pretend – and I’ll go about pretending in these lovely espadrilles by Tory Burch at Nordstrom. I love the lace detail […]

Piece & Co.

 Good morning! Today I’m wearing my favorite piece from the Piece & Co. collaboration with Nordstrom and amazing brands such as Tory Burch (this skirt!), Theory (this top!) and Joie. Piece & Co. works with female artisans in the developing world, creating job opportunities to help better their families and communities. The top I’m wearing […]


 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. *** […]

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 […]


 3rd stop: Hanoi, Vietnam. It was a long bus ride from the coast to get to Hanoi, but so worth it. We walked along the Old Quarter, visited the Temple of Literature and peeked into Ho Chi Minh’s former living quarters. A strong Vietnamese coffee and the best chicken Pho I’ve ever had were some […]

Hope you have a wonderful day! *** Coat – Zara (their big annual sale is on now!) Dress – thanks to Rebecca Taylor (here) Watch – Tory Burch (here) Scarf – thanks […]

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 […]


 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 […]


 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 […]


 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 […]

Cream & Khaki

 Happy Sunday! Preparing for the holidays has been fun, but I’ve also been enjoying preparations for an upcoming trip to Vietnam. I’m really looking forward to warm, sunny beach weather (and I bought this one-piece and these shades at 25% off for it!). We plan to do a lot of walking so I also picked up […]


 Moving out of the city last year presented itself with some major changes, not least of which is my newfound proximity to (gasp!) nature. I’m steps away from trails with sweeping 360-degree views of the bay (Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge and Richmond Bridge are all in sight!), a short drive from the beautiful Redwood […]

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 […]


 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 […]


 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! *** […]


 Along with the holidays come the holiday dresses: some sparkly (New Year’s fete?), some elegant (cocktail party?) and some cozy (Thanksgiving at home?). I was looking for the latter, given that I’ll be feasting on my sister’s cooking for Thanksgiving and chasing a toddler in between bites. This James Perse sweater dress from Nordstrom is […]

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? […]


 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 […]


 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 […]

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, […]

 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 […]


 2pm. I’m running between a few casual work meetings and making a pit stop at my local coffee shop. Just enough time to make a quick call (ironing out those last minute details for an upcoming photoshoot for the website!), and a little lipstick refresh à la Charlotte Tilbury. Out the door in 20 minutes flat! PS: […]

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 […]


 As a new mother, I’ve learned to look forward to things that make me feel like I’ve indulged in a quick little “me” moment, for example, putting on lipstick. Even better? A new lipstick. I don’t quite have time for a massive overhaul of my beauty routine, so when I want to feel like I’m […]


 During my pregnancy I collected many non-maternity dresses (that I bought several sizes too big), with the intention of wearing them again after pregnancy. Some of them work just fine with a belt now, but others were calling for something a little more special. Something that could be slung a little lower on the waist, something […]

All Black

 Lucia is almost 7 months old now! She loves her assortment of toys, but the “adult” things are what pique her interest: my husband’s watch, my bracelets (like these pretty leather woven ones from Pari Desai), our water glasses (which is her preferred method of drinking water – this girl skipped right past the sippy […]

New York (Four)

Rebecca Taylor was filled with rich shades of lavender and navy and, as always, the clothing was feminine and elegant. I loved the detail on this gray dress. ***  Tibi was an absolute dream for me – the coats, the hats, the heavy knit dresses… I can’t wait for these pieces to hit stores in […]
