Velvet

 Going all-out in midnight blue with rich velvet and cozy textures for the holidays, from Ann Taylor’s newest collection. This blazer is even more gorgeous in person, perfect for my festive night out with friends. I also picked up the matching velvet pant – love having the option to match it or wear the pieces separately (I […]

Polka Dots

 Three things I’ve been crazy about in one look: berets (I also picked one up in gray), polka dots (I can’t wait to wear this dress again and I love my new pumps from Nordstrom’s Designer Collections), and belting my coats. It’s all in there today, that and the kitchen sink, ha! Switching out my pumps […]

Casual Tuesday

 Battling a cold right now so between my sneezing fits and stuffed up nose I’m wrapping myself up in this cozy blanket scarf. My husband had the same cold before me so I know I’m up for an interesting few days ahead! Items I’ve worn over the last few months are finally on sale, I’ve rounded […]

Moss

 It’s that time of year again: SALE season! I always have my eye on a few things hoping that they’ll make it to a markdown (or two) which would make it that much sweeter of a find for me. I’m a deal-finder at heart, that’s for sure! Here’s what’s on my holiday wishlist (at 40% […]

Packing

 Good morning and happy Friday! I recently partnered with Ricardo Beverly Hills and their new Aileron collection luggage to help me with my packing last week for the Napa Valley Film Festival! I was excited to see these cases in person and I was even more excited when I opened them up and traveled with […]

Dots and Studs

 In the perfect Fall outfit for work but dreaming of a Fall weekend in cozy sweaters and denim. A few of my latest finds at Sezane (they’ve just nailed the effortless, romantic Parisian chic look!): a cashmere blend sweater in bold red but with soft, feminine ruffles here a romantic take on the lace-up sweater with satin ribbon lacing […]

Blush and Olive

 My top favorite moments during the Napa Valley Film Festival: Watching Skid Row Marathon the documentary – and being moved to tears. An incredibly inspiring story with an incredibly inspiring group of people. Learn more here. Participating in a blind tasting of wines led by some of the best known sommeliers. It was awesome to hear […]

Beret

 Happy Friday! I’m kicking off the weekend early in Napa for the Napa Valley Film Festival: film, food and wine are all things I’ll happily enjoy. I packed this gorgeous beret for the occasion because if there’s one accessory to add this season, it is definitely a classic beret. More accessories at Nordstrom I’m eyeing: […]

Tweed

 Good morning and happy Wednesday! Finally getting to bring out my suede loafers (which I picked up on super sale a few months ago), replacing the white raffia ones from Summer. I absolutely love the Gucci loafers that are everywhere (I’m constantly eyeing them but never quite took the plunge), but I love that this pair […]

Olive and Black

 Finally getting to wear my ultra sheer tights, and it’s going to be hard not wear it with everything this season (while the weather is not too cold anyway)! We enjoyed a quick little overnighter in the city at the lovely Hotel Nikko, which used to be just a walk downhill from where we used to live. […]

Stripes

 In a number of classics at a great price point: a silk shirt for $98, a cashmere scarf for $150 and sustainably made denim for $68. Two thumbs up from me! PS: Two additional words: Bruno Mars. Such an awesome night out for his concert on Friday – I’m a fan! The weekend flew by […]

Navy

 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 […]

Casual

 Good morning! Keeping it casual today – hope you’re having a great week! *** Mockneck top – La Vie Rebecca Taylor (here) Jeans – La Vie Rebecca Taylor (here and here) Blazer – Reformation (here) Heels – Gianvito Rossi (bought them here | more styles available here and really love this camel lace version here) Purse […]

Mix

 I’m experimenting with a mix of colors and bold patterns today, which was inspired by this amazing coat when I first saw it at W Concept. I don’t have anything like it in my closet: a little sporty but luxe at the same time. It also has a detachable faux fur collar for those days that need […]

Velvet

 I say this every year, but I absolutely love the changing weather. Cooler temperatures = jackets, coats, scarves… All of my favorite things. Happy Halloween! *** Coat – SJSJ (here) Top – Madewell (here) Pants – Joseph (here) Shoes – Ferragamo (here) Purse – Mark Cross (here | also saw it on consignment for less in a beautiful […]

Getaway

 Last week, Biossance swept me off my feet (literally) for a little getaway: we spent a day at their lab in Emeryville learning all about their sustainable techniques for developing their clean beauty products, and a day of relaxation at Half Moon Bay taking in the gorgeous scenery. I have been a longtime fan of their 100% Squalane […]

Navy & Camel

 Happy weekend! A quick post today before we head out and enjoy this gorgeous weather in San Francisco. Hope you have a good one! *** Wool coat – SJSJ (here, also in a nice deep red here | similar styles priced high to low: here, here and here) Sweater – SJSJ (here) Pleated skirt – […]

Transitional

 One of the items on my Fall list was a duster cardigan – something that can look polished and relaxed at the same time. I found the one by Halston Heritage at Neiman Marcus. Wearing it with a dress here but it will easily work over jeans, leggings, or even joggers for travel days. While […]

Check

 A bold pairing in a streamlined silhouette today. I liked that they’re two unexpected patterns (a moody floral with a more masculine check print). I also liked that the dress (at $49) reminded me of Hawaii in the winter… and now I’m dreaming of a mid-winter getaway with the family. Sigh. I recently mentioned on […]

The Handsome

 Good morning and happy Monday! I’ve been so excited to share my latest discovery: The Handsome. It’s one thing to fall in love with everything that you see on a site – another to actually receive everything and love it all even more! The fabrics are gorgeous and luxe, and the fit is perfect. If […]

Texture

 I’ve had this belt for years… I “borrowed” it from my mom’s closet maybe 8 years ago and, not surprisingly, it never made its way back home. I’m looking forward to the day Lucia starts hunting through my closet! Thought I’d share a few things about what I’m wearing in this post: This coat: I […]

Blazer

 The blazer of the season: it’s oversized but still slim, longer past the hips and in prints that are borrowed from the boys. Sign me right up! What are your weekend plans? I’ll be spending some time with the Biossance team (more about that soon!), getting together with friends to kick off Halloween (Lucia and […]

In Memphis

 Let’s talk about the food in Memphis! In just 48 hours we: devoured BBQ, the Memphis way, at Central BBQ (tasting everything from a plate of 3 meats and some sides, but the biggest surprise was the banana pudding dessert) feasted on southern-style courses at Itta Bena above BB Kings Blues Club (I ordered the duck and […]

Wrap

 Happy Wednesday! The last 48 hours have been a blur… if you want to see what I’ve been up to, please see my Instagram Stories before it’s gone! Besides an inspiring tour of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we also got a chance to experience Memphis food (BBQ! Fried Chicken! Sweet Potato Pancakes!). And a […]

La Liste

 Finally! The ultimate cool-girl Parisian brand, Sezane, has launched La Liste: a collection of timeless items they’ll be continually restocking on site. And they’re classic pieces so, of course, they are right up my alley: I have this ruffled blouse in ecru – it’s just as pretty in person and fits nice and slim throughout (usually in […]

Velvet

 I didn’t have an “occasion” for a dress when I found this lovely velvet one at Nordstrom (it’s only $148!), but funny how that works sometimes because soon after it was hanging in my closet my husband and I were able to enjoy a rare date night out in the city. I’ve been pairing flats with everything lately, […]

Buttons

 Sweet button detailing down the arms of this sweater were a perfect match for romantic pleats, and I threw in an oversized denim jacket for some contrast. *** Denim jacket – Sezane (here | also picked up this gorgeous forest green coat while in Paris at their L’appartement!) Sweater – Sezane (here) Skirt – Piazza Sempione […]

Cognac, France

 It’s hard to believe, but after all of my trips to France (and even living in Paris for 5 weeks when I was 17), I had never once ventured out to the countryside. My days in Cognac were so memorable and the scenery was just breathtaking – it’s making me crave a visit to all of the other […]

Plaid

 Good morning and happy Monday! Back home from my whirlwind trip to Paris and ready to jump back into things. I didn’t nap all day yesterday, so I’m crossing fingers for minimal jet-lag… do you have any tried and true jet-lag cures? *** Trousers – H&M (here | similar styles: here and here) Shirt – Madewell (the […]

Cusp

 Good morning and happy Friday! It’s been a whirlwind week in Cognac and Paris! It’s my first time in the french countryside and I’m in love with the peaceful, beautiful change of scenery compared to my many stays in Paris. But today I’m sharing a look from before I left for Paris! I’ve partnered with […]

at Le Logis

 Bonjour from the countryside in beautiful Cognac! I’ve been here less than 48 hours and it has been an absolute dream. Waking up in a chateau, spending our days at Le Logis on its picture-perfect grounds, and tasting a lot of delicious drinks a la Grey Goose. My friends and family will attest to the […]

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 […]

Weekends with Lucia

 This little girl is adventurous, independent, bold and funny – her sense of humor (and on-point comedic timing) still surprises us all. the. time. We recently spent the weekend doing touristy things in our own city, enjoying things we often take for granted. With our matching sneakers from DSW (Adidas for me, Converse for her; […]

Red

 I’ve been bringing a pop of red into my outfits lately, whether it’s with my little YSL bag or my Paul Andrew slingback flats (25% off in black here!). These pumps will be in rotation now too – it’s a shorter mid-heel so it’s perfect for those busy days on the go. More ways to add […]

Camel

 Good morning and happy Tuesday! It’s the start of coat season! I’m the kind of person who even wears a coat indoors… because anything under 72 degrees is a little chilly for me. So coat season is, obviously, my favorite. Sharing more of my favorite styles for the season below! Squeezing every last hour out of this […]

Luxewear

 I’ve partnered with Ann Taylor today and found myself gravitating to my comfort zone of grays – but with luxe materials like wool cashmere and super soft, stretch knit. I’m truly in love with Ann Taylor’s latest Luxewear collection and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time: we spent the weekend in Boulder, Colorado for a […]

Fall Feelings

 This post is sponsored by Sole Society. Thank you for partnering with me! A day running out and about in the city requires comfortable shoes and a big carry-all. Love the grosgrain fabric on this cap-toe flat by Sole Society. They have a very subtle square-toe – such a luxe and elegant detail! And right now I’m crazy about the […]

Muted

  Muted tones and cool-weather textures. One day it’s warm and sunny and and the next day it’s drizzling (barely) and overcast. Welcome to September in San Francisco! PS: I ran around in these shoes all day – no pain! Gotta love a low heel and super comfy suede. *** Sweater – H&M (an amazing price at $19.99 here | […]

Weekend Vibes

 I was on the hunt for an easy, laid-back late-summer dress and found it in this one. The kind that doesn’t make you fidget and feels carefree. Because weekends are made for it. *** Dress – Ann Taylor (here) Jacket – Rachel Comey (old, bought it here | similar here for $100) Purse – YSL (can’t find […]

Wrap

 Wearing a wrap dress and shouting emphatically “that’s a wrap!” on this rough, rough week. A weekend sounds like the perfect way to get my bearings back! What are your weekend plans? 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 […]

Weekend to Workweek (part one)

 This top (the prettiest little thing!) and jean combo for weekend. And next up on the blog: I’ll be wearing the same combo for work. Hope you have a great start to your week! *** Top – Rebecca Taylor (here and here) Jeans – Mother denim (found it in one size left for 40% off here – 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 […]

Gray Layers

 Keeping it short and sweet today – hope you’re having a wonderful 3 day weekend and happy Labor Day! *** Silk blouse – MM.LaFleur (the button details on this! here) Trousers – Fabiana Filippi (love this luxe line… here) Sweater – Acne Studios (old | found one that’s almost identical for $120 here) Work tote – […]

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 […]

Crisp

 Crisp white shirting and comfy gray trousers make for an easy summer work outfit. Hope you have a great start to your week and thanks for stopping by! *** Shirt – Ann Taylor (plus today is the last day for 40% off! here | similar styles: here, here and here) Trousers – Ayr (old | similar […]

Ruffle

 Feminine ruffles and a whimsical polka dot print in dress form: my summer Friday look. Also, I love and wear these loafers so much – I *finally* jumped at getting the suede version after watching it get marked down again and again (here!). Hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by! *** Ruffle […]

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 […]

Alaska (One)

 We made it to Ketchikan, Alaska! Will share more in the coming days but suffice it to say: it’s breathtakingly beautiful. Nature at its finest. Thanks for stopping by! *** Top – H&M (here) Jeans – Madewell (here) Purse – Lo & Sons (such a good travel buy for $148! here) Sneakers – Kenneth Cole (my […]
