Showing Results for: Wearing Now


 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! […]

Springtime Blues

 Blue cashmere and blue stripes – a combo I’ll be re-wearing in no time. How was your weekend? Ours was a great one… finally our weekends are becoming ours again. No more renovation, no more moving, phew! We met up with friends at the  Tiburon Classic Car Show, had a Father’s Day sushi dinner (Daigo is […]


 Three things: This skirt (located the exact same one on consignment here!) – In my closet for *I think* 9 years, it has always been a special one. I found it during a huge sale here (and is it cheesy that I still remember the thrill of finding it in the sale section in the store?!)… I […]

Floral and Tweed

 Feeling all kinds of flirty, feminine and confident in this matching floral set for work today. It’s equal parts romantic and sophisticated – the fuss-free day-to-night outfit that I can depend on to get me through the day. That, and a double vanilla latte, of course! Hope you’re having a wonderful week and thank you for […]

Black and Camel

 Weekend relaxation at its best! I “shopped” my closet and pulled out this old full midi skirt from a few years ago. Classic will always outlast trendy – which makes it an easy excuse for investing in pieces that fit the classic category. Hope you had a wonderful weekend too! *** Jacket – Ann Taylor (here) Top […]

Trench Coat Love

 It’s no secret that I love, love, love trench coats. They are the epitome of classic, the best investments I’ve made (remember the Stella McCartney one I wore endlessly for several years?), and among my favorite items in my closet. I’ve scored many of them at sale season (including the Gucci one I’m wearing here), […]

3 Days in Bar III

 Good morning! I partnered with Bar III to share some of their latest arrivals: modern pieces to mix in with what I already have in my closet to make things feel fresh and current. My favorite piece is the romantic white cold-shoulder top but the jumpsuit was a surprise winner for me too! Loved how my […]


 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 […]


 Weekend goals: unpack everything and enjoy our newly installed floors! Phew. It’s been a journey (that’s for sure) – one that we didn’t expect would be so complicated and fraught with challenges. I’ll save those lessons learned for another post (it’ll be a long one!). PS: The moment I saw this jacket at Ann Taylor, I knew […]


 Good morning and happy Thursday! I took notes from Vince’s Spring collection and paired a rust colored jacket and pant (under $100!) with a baby blue sweater.

Linen Stripes

 Good morning and happy Thursday! Sharing a recent trench find under $150 – and I’m pretty sure it’s one of the best versions out there at this price range. Three more great options under $150: This one by Topshop is well under $150 and I love the oversized cut and detail at the sleeve. This […]

Easier than Silk

 Good morning and happy Monday! Excited to be partnering with Ministry of Supply again (remember this post here?) – and this time I’m in my favorite shades of gray. The blouse is super stretchy and so easy to move in. Better yet? It’s machine washable and wrinkle resistant too. One less thing to dry clean […]

 Good morning and happy Friday! You might have seen on my Instagram, but we’re getting a little dusty over here! New hardwood floors are being installed and I cannot be more excited. The process itself has been a little intimidating…who knew all of the types, finishes, and specifications involved in choosing hardwood floor?! Certainly not […]

Lucia at Three

 I’m feeling pretty lucky: I get to celebrate my third Mother’s Day with my favorite girl this weekend. Lucia at three is a hoot: she is a natural little actress, with comedic timing even! She wants to wear dresses all of the time, loves to climb trees and eats sushi. After a really wet, stormy winter, […]

PS: My new favorite lipstick, and it’s in a chubby crayon format! Talk about easy to apply! It’s “Rose Violin” here. *** […]

Casual Monday

 “Shopping” my own closet and pulling out a blazer I’ve had for years now. Classic pieces like these never go out of style. Making it modern by pairing it with a romantic ruffle-sleeved blouse and my current favorite denim. I’m diving right into Monday – extra motivated to make it a productive one. Hope you had […]


 Finally – a sunshine-filled and warm weekend in the Bay Area! And the forecast says it’ll continue for the foreseeable (i.e. weeklong) future… Cheers to that.

 Wearing my most playful pair of sandals, recently found at Monnier Freres (a new online destination for fashion accessories!).

UNOde50 in San Francisco

 Good morning and happy weekend!! Excited to be sharing news about UNOde50, a Madrid-born handcrafted jewelry brand: they’ve opened their first SF store at Westfield San Francisco Centre! Exclusivity is their philosophy (hence the name UNOde50, or “one of fifty”), and they started out with the concept of creating only 50 one-of-a-kind units of each […]

Last from Hawaii

 I’m trying to figure out how two weeks have gone by since our trip to Oahu for my in-laws’ 50th wedding anniversary, but I can’t decide if it feels like ages ago or if it feels like yesterday. It’s been a whirlwind, to say the least. Give me the sun, sand and a warm beach […]

Golden Hour

 Chasing sunsets in Tiburon at the good ol’ hippie swing and taking advantage of this beautiful Springtime light too! I recently received a bottle of L’Occitane’s newest fragrance collection, Terre de Lumiere. It is exactly how I love my perfume to be: delicate and low-key with a hint of citrus – and yet somehow it’s warm and sensual […]

Getting a head start on Easter in this Easter-appropriate look. Uncontrollably drawn to all this blush pink this season (more about that soon!! hint: I found the sneaker of my dreams!).

Resort Ready

 Good morning and happy Monday! We got back over the weekend and had a day or two to adjust – but time to get back in the swing of things! But first, this outfit from Hawaii by Worth New York: crinkle pleats and the sweetest shell shank buttons across the shoulders and down the sides. […]

Easy Dressing

 A few days ago we paddle boarded out from Kailua beach to the aptly named Flat Island, a little bird sanctuary off the coast. We needed the 10 minutes of rest it took to circle the entire island after battling the waves to get there! Luckily, the ride back was fast and easy. My first time […]


 Good morning! Finding it more appropriate to dance (not walk) my way around while wearing this polka dotted dress from the new Karlie Kloss collection at Express. It’s one of those rare ones that just make you smile when you’re wearing it. Plus, the fabric is light and travels well (no creases!), it’s comfy and best […]

Beach Poncho

A few things I’ll be packing: in White: because nothing says sunshine and warm weather like a white leather bag in […]

All about the Pant

 Good morning and happy Tuesday! Sharing my love for trousers today, the working woman’s must-have.

Weekend in Pink

 Good morning! Remember my last post about my favorite body oil by Biossance?

They’ve undergone a lovely rebrand, but the product is still 100% squalane. Squalane has […]

Spring Suede

 Such an incredible Spring-like weekend in the city wearing my latest Worth New York finds: the perfect suede anorak, a navy shirtdress (for work and weekends!) and a lovely leather shoulder bag.

 My weekend warrior: the classic quilted jacket. This one has “field jacket” detailing and Burberry’s lovely lining, which I love.

 Nothing like getting in a (very minor) car accident on a freeway by a hit and tried-to-run driver to remind you that as crappy as things might seem in that minute, it could always be worse.
