Tokyo (One)

 In Tokyo again and we still can’t believe how much we absolutely love Japan – everything about it. Walking several miles every day and checking off activities on our list. I’ll be sure to recap everything after our trip! For now: happy Wednesday and thank you so much for visiting! *** Valentino cape (from last […]

5 Things I Do for ‘Me’

This post is in partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond, a brand I love. All opinions here are my own. With each passing year, the days, weeks and months feel shorter… the list of required daily tasks grows longer… and moments of quiet calm seem rarer. Usually it’s because they’ve been filled with Lucia’s laughter […]

All gray

 All gray on a sunny, almost-winter day. I know it’s not yet December (close enough!) but I already feel behind in my Christmas shopping for family and friends. We’ve been big fan of giving experiences over the last few years, but I always love wrapping something tangible… Here are some of my favorite gift pairings: A night […]


 Good morning and happy Tuesday! When I joined Biossance at their lab last month, I had the honor of creating my own custom blend of essential oils with 100% Squalane for today, Giving Tuesday. My blend has Bergamot, Neroli, Lavender and a touch of Frankincense – I love it! Biossance is pledging 100% of proceeds from sales […]


 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 […]

Polka Dot

 A quick weekend in San Diego for my cousin’s wedding with the family and now I’m off to France! Will be a whirlwind week and can’t wait to share more! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! PS: So excited to be featured alongside some lovely SF ladies for Farfetch’s editorial feature with Temperley London! Absolutely […]

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 […]


 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 […]


 Happy Friday!! My current obsession: full midi skirts (love this striped version here) paired with tucked-in tees. It’s comfortable to wear all day and feels like summer! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. *** Tee – Ann Taylor (now 40% off! here | similar styles: here, here and here with crew neck) Skirt – Ann Taylor (now 40% off! here | also […]

Hope you’re having a good week so far! *** Sweater – Milly (here | similar styles under $200 priced high to low: here, here and here) […]


 It feels like summer is firmly here: we’ve been experiencing a heatwave over the last few days, Lucia is in summer school having fun, and we’re hosting family and friends who are staying with us over the next few weeks. Lots to look forward to! Hope your week is going well, thanks for stopping by! […]


 We got a rare date night out and headed to our favorite meal: sushi. After our trip to Japan last year, we decided that we would, without hesitation, travel there every year if we could. Probably not going to happen this year (sad face!), but there’s always next! ‘Til then, we’ll take our sushi dinner and think […]

Dress & Tee

 Happy Monday! Wearing this dress again for a hot, hot day in New York. It’s pretty low cut so rather than fidget with it all day, adding a tee underneath made it comfortable and fuss-free. In the fall I’ll switch up the tee for a turtleneck. Same dress, year-round. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! […]


 Always on the lookout for a good trouser and love these. The material is thicker and sturdier, so it looks more expensive than it actually is. Enjoying the long weekend with Lucia before heading out to New York later this week! Hope you’re having a wonderful Labor Day weekend too! *** Trousers – & Other […]

Black & Gray

 Good morning and happy Monday! Classic in black and gray today, wearing staple pieces that can typically be found in any closet: a longline blazer (I like ones that are cut extra-slim in the arms to balance out the otherwise boxy cut! this style is 60% off), a silk blouse (this one is slightly sheer […]


 It’s been a while since I pulled out one of my belts – what an easy way to change up an outfit! This week flew by – so relieved and excited! My weekend “list” involves: trying out this new eye palette – I’m so often in a rush on weekdays that weekends are the days I […]

A Day in The Life with Tory Burch: Tel Aviv

7:00am | Brown Beach Hotel, Tel Aviv For the first time in a while, I’m not jetlagged! It changes everything: I wake up feeling excited for the day. After checking emails and scrolling quickly through social media, I put on my new favorite Tory Burch watch, get ready and make my way downstairs for breakfast. Jetlagged or […]

StyleLab (One)

 Perched on a bridge looking over at the Ponte Vecchio in Firenze for my first StyleLab shoot with LuisaViaRoma. I was absolutely thrilled to travel to Florence last weekend for this event – and it was every bit as dreamy as I imagined it would be! The StyleLab is a big part of the event: […]

In Rome

 In my happy place and dancing in the middle of a street in Rome. I had the incredible opportunity to travel to Florence over the weekend with Luisa Via Roma for Firenze4Ever (more on the StyleLab photoshoot soon!), and couldn’t come all this way without making a little jump over to Rome too. It’s my […]


 Happy Memorial Day!

 Good morning and happy Monday! The weekend went by way too quickly… and now it’s time to get back to work! I work mostly from home now but frequently take meetings outside of the home. Dresses are such a simple go-to for a quick change and I love that this one can easily transition from […]

Bold Stripes

 Happy Monday! We had a fun weekend filled with easter egg hunts (both at our local park and in our home), and after one round of practicing “find the eggs!” at home, Lucia was already a pro. Holidays really are much more fun with kids around! Time to get to work… Hope you have a […]

New York 2

 Happy Wednesday! I’m back home in Tiburon now (with a mountain of work to tackle!!), but the trip was definitely worth it. Loved seeing the shows, catching up with friends, and of course, the shopping! I met some wonderful ladies at the Bergdorf event (thank you for stopping by!), and even bought another pair of […]


 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 […]

 I know I’ve already sung their praises in regards to their dresses, but I can’t get enough of MM.LaFleur! I’m madly in love with this jacket – a modern boxy cut that is slim enough in the arms and shoulders for a more feminine look. It also has a quilted lining, so it’s deceptively warm. Next […]


 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 […]


 Starting sweater season off right (I picked up a few on sale!). And a confession: I’ve already worn the striped one twice… this week! Heading straight for the airport after a whirlwind trip to NYC… Happy Thursday! Lace detail sweater – J.Crew (on sale and extra 40% here) Navy leather pocket sweater – J.Crew (on sale […]

Year round…

 I do love a touch of leopard (like this clutch) – and there is so much good leopard out there right now! Here are some of my favorites:


 Work has been keeping me on my toes…there never seems to be enough hours in the day! I’ll be taking a rare work trip with a colleague next week and it feels like there is so much to prepare at home (the days of intense traveling for my previous job seem so long ago!). Hopefully […]

Simple Tee

 Sometimes, just a simple white tee does the trick. I’ve made my way out to Dallas for the weekend – it’s exactly the change of pace and scenery that I needed! Hope you have a wonderful weekend too! *** T-shirt – thanks to AG Jeans at their San Francisco Union Square boutique (love the perfect, […]

 Even though I live and work in Tiburon now, I’ve held on to all of my favorite doctors, dentist, hair stylist (and even dry cleaner!) in San Francisco so that there’s always a reason to make the quick trip across the Golden Gate Bridge. Plus a lot of them happen to be in or around […]
