Weekend in Pink

 Good morning! Remember my last post about my favorite body oil by Biossance? I’m so excited to be sharing the news: they’re available now at Sephora and they’re offering a free deluxe sample duo right now here (enough product for about two weeks!). They’ve undergone a lovely rebrand, but the product is still 100% squalane. Squalane has […]


 Good morning! We were supposed to get more rain this week but it’s been pleasantly sunny and Spring-like instead. No complaints! Time to bring out the Springtime flats (and for a pair under $120, this is my favorite!). *** Trench – thanks to St. John (here) Blouse – Jonathan Simkhai (bought it on sale | […]

Spring Neutrals

 Spring neutrals in my new favorite trench by St. John – love the deep chic color and luxurious (but relaxed!) drape. It’s perfect for work and weekends, over jeans or trousers alike. Thanks for visiting and happy Wednesday! *** Items thanks to St. John (more Spring looks here!) Soft drape suiting trench (here) Soft drape suiting pant […]

M.Gemi’s 2nd Anniversary

 Good morning!! M.Gemi invited me to celebrate their 2nd Anniversary with them and I was more than thrilled – plus how could I possibly turn down these fun, giant balloons?! Want to get in on the celebration? M.Gemi is giving away $50 off your first online purchase from 3/20-4/3 with code “9TO5” here. I’m wearing one of […]


 Good morning and happy Friday! Ascribing to the idea that opposites attract with casual camo and a touch of shiny, metallic rose gold. That, and a silk blouse (my permanent go-to!). Hope you have a wonderful weekend! *** Jacket – thanks to Sanctuary (here, here and here; another version for less here) Blouse – Jonathan Simkhai […]


 All blush, everyday. Simple and easy! Hope your week is going well! *** Coat – Topshop (best jacket find for $150! here) Top – Ann Taylor (I own another top in this same fabric and color from a previous season – sticking with what works! here) Pants – & Other Stories (similar styles here and […]

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. This staycation weekend was exactly what we needed! We were back in our old San Francisco neighborhood at the Ritz-Carlton in Nob Hill, […]


 My weekend warrior: the classic quilted jacket. This one has “field jacket” detailing and Burberry’s lovely lining, which I love. Over the years, the one brand my husband and I have repeatedly turned to for very special occasions is Burberry. It’s a classic investment gift and always a winner. Sharing some of my favorite pieces […]

Pop of Color

 A splash of color. My little New Year’s Resolution is going strong, if I may say so myself! Happy Thursday! *** Dress – MM.LaFleur (fits and feels like a dream, as their clothing always does! found it at their NY showroom and couldn’t leave without it. here) Trench – Gucci (similar styles in different price ranges: […]

Olive and Stripes

 It’s a brand new week! Starting fresh with a few new lip colors in my makeup bag (my first foray into the lip crayon – such a fan now!) here and here. So smooth and easy to apply! Sometimes it’s the little things! Hope you have a great start to your week and thanks for […]


 After this pretty eventful week, I’m ready for a relaxing weekend. I might not even mind the rain one bit – more reason to stay cozy indoors. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! PS: found a similar version to my gingham trench for less here! *** Dress – Ann Taylor (I think this one is […]


 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. So grateful. Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a lovely week! *** Dress – thanks to Arizia (here) […]


 A relaxed look comprised of classic items: denim, a peacoat and a simple white tee. Happy Monday! *** Coat – Nili Lotan (same cut in trench coat material here | similar styles priced high to low: here, here, here and here; and these two are super similar for under $40: here and here) T-shirt – Loft (here […]

Weekend Casual

 Good morning and happy Friday! In my easy weekend casual uniform for coffee and errands: walkable booties and a tote from Sole Society, and go-to skinny jeans. These are the perfect city boots! They’re low heeled (but still-heeled!), in soft suede and are just unique enough with the cut-out ankle detail. Also loving the taupe version. Had a quick trip […]

Last from NYC

 The last from my New York trip and feeling like a kid again with the fresh snow! Loved being in a winter wonderland. Hope you’re having a great week! *** Trench – Sonia Rykiel (here | similar for less here and here) Sweater – thanks to LOFT (here, previously worn here) Jeans – Acne Studios (here) […]


 It might not come as a surprise, but my love for neutrals doesn’t end with clothes. When ThirdLove, a new bra company, reached out to me about their New Nakeds Collection (two years in the making!), I was excited to find all of my favorite shades (a rainbow of neutrals!) and happily gave their bras a try […]


 Good morning and happy Monday! Living in flats lately and today’s outfit is no different. Rounded up some of my favorites below! Hope you have a great start to your week! *** Blouse – Theory (still available here for $175 | also similar for less: here) Cape – Valentino (found it for 75% off | […]

New York (Four)

 My first Spring purchase, and it was at the top of my wishlist: a gingham trench coat. It’ll be a great pop of print against my typical uniform of neutrals. What are you wishlisting for Spring? *** Trench – Sonia Rykiel (here and here | a gingham trench coat is my favorite item for this coming Spring! […]

New York (Three)

Happy Wednesday! I’m back home now but still have so many photos from NYC to share. It has been cold, but not nearly as cold as it was last year (record low temperatures during my trip then!)! I’m still glad I remembered to pack my heat tech layers (I have both the crew neck and […]

New York (Two)

 Good morning and happy Monday! Keeping busy in New York: walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, visited MoMA, saw the Tadashi Shoji, Noon by Noor and Jenny Packham runway shows, stopped by the Kate Spade and Club Monaco presentations… and so many good meals. Will be back soon with another outfit from NY! Hope you have […]

New York (One)

 Good morning from snowy New York!! Always good to be back in this lively city, visiting old friends and seeing a few shows and presentations. In my comfort zone when it comes to colors for my first day here and looking forward to the rest of the trip. Friends, food and fashion – the perfect weekend […]

 Good morning and happy Wednesday! Trying to put a few brutal sick days behind me and looking forward to a long weekend in New York. Not sure how my head is going to fare in the colder temperatures, but I’m thinking positive thoughts (and packing my warmest scarves and sweaters). Hope you’re having a great […]


 Good morning and happy Thursday! I’ve been slow to look at Spring’s new arrivals, but I already have my eye on my next pair of trousers: this fresh pair in deep rose or this tapered version in a similar color. I have a feeling it will be my new favorite color come Spring. Hope you’re having a […]


 Blue florals for last weekend’s wedding (on the Lunar New Year!). Always so good to see family and extended family. PS: If you’re on the hunt for a floral set, I love this one and it’s on super sale: here for the top and here for the skirt. *** Top – Zimmermann (here) Skirt – Zimmermann […]

Pale Rose

 Good morning and happy Saturday! Lots of family-related events for my cousin’s wedding this weekend – will be a fun and busy few days, can’t wait! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by! PS: MM.LaFleur is back in town at the Dryanski Gallery in Cow Hollow – join them for a styling […]


 Loving the exaggerated sleeves on this blouse. I keep my eye out for blouses during sale season because I can get higher quality for less (and this one is currently $90 marked down from $360!). It’s a no brainer. Found a few more great blouses on sale below! *** Coat – Tibi (more pink coats here, here, […]

Pink & Gray

 Good morning and happy Monday! Bringing together all the neutrals with a pop of pink today. Hope you have a great start to your week and thanks for stopping by! *** Coat – Tibi (wearing pink makes me smile! more pick coats: here, here, here and here) Cardigan – Cuyana (here | similar styles: here, here) Turtleneck […]

Garnet and Gold

 Growing up, we always celebrated Lunar New Year with our extended family, the Vietnamese way: one by one wishing our elders good fortune for the New Year. It was strictly formal; all eyes were on you when it was your turn to wish your aunt or grandparent a year of health and happiness (and other […]


 Good morning and happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week and the to-do list is even longer than it was on Monday…! Thanks for visiting and hope you’re having a good week! *** Sweater – Gabriela Hearst (sale find here) Skirt – Helmut Lang (old on sale here | similar style here in navy) Flats – Paul […]


 A striped set I wish I had with me when I was in Hawaii (with flat slides – perfect resort wear!). Styling it for a San Francisco winter now though, with a cozy sweater and trench on top. Thanks for visiting and happy Monday! *** Sweater – Helmut Lang (from last year’s sale | similar […]

Hawaii (four)

 I’ve partnered with Macy’s and ShopStyle today to share our travel gear by Joy Mangano. Have you seen the movie “Joy” with Jennifer Lawrence?? It’s so good! Watching it a few months ago made discovering this Christie luggage set super fun: she definitely stayed true to her inventive spirit. Each luggage is equipped with collapsable “drawers,” […]

Hawaii (three)

 Happy Wednesday! Enjoying every last bit of Hawaii on this trip because we’re back to reality tomorrow! We’ve gone canoeing, paddle boarding, and have been spending endless hours going back and forth between the beach and the pool. Already scheming for our next trip (even if it won’t be for a while…)! Thank you for visiting […]

Hawaii (two)

 Getting some R&R and loads of playtime with Lucia. Days are filled with sun, sand, beach and pool. Not a bad way to start the new year! Back to reality soon… Hope you have a great start to your week! *** Dress – Cinq a Sept (bought it on super sale here but now sold […]


 We made it to Hawaii! We’re getting lucky with weather here (sunshine and high 70s!), and Lucia is having the best time. Beach, sand, pool – can’t ask for anything else. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by! *** Blouse – Saloni (on sale here) Shorts – Levi’s (here) Hat […]


 I get so much wear out of my trench coats – they’re versatile and classic. This cape version is one I’ll be keeping forever – love the length and drama! Back to reality but not for long: looking forward to a warm-weather family getaway with Lucia later this week! Hope you’re having a wonderful week and […]

To the Nutcracker

 My Christmas present to Lucia were tickets to the SF Ballet’s Nutcracker last week. We had a little family dinner date near War Memorial Opera House and walked to the ballet. Lucia loved it. And I loved it. The production was absolutely beautiful (and I had no idea the very first time Nutcracker was performed […]

Bright and Cheery

 Ending the year on a bright and cheery note in this fancy floral blouse (under $30 on sale!). And because it’s New Year’s Eve, let this be my New Year’s (silly) resolution: more color in my wardrobe! I always lean towards my go-to neutrals but it’s so refreshing to wear color! Especially on a cold(ish) winter […]

On ice

 A little known fact: I figure skated when I was younger. I found my idol in an elegant and graceful Kristi Yamaguchi and spent 8 years giving it my all (early morning practices, after school practices, weekends…). Following your dream doesn’t always amount to a shiny medal on the National stage, but I have only […]


 In the week between Christmas and the New Year, all I want to wear is: cozy and comfy. Hope you had a wonderful holiday with friends and family – thank you so much for visiting! *** Cardigan – Intermix (it was on super sale – extra 50% off! more sale items here | similar styles under $30: […]

Rose Gold

 Good morning and Merry almost-Christmas! Our gift-giving efforts for friends and family were completed early this year (patting myself on the back for that one!), and many of my finds were at Nordstrom. Luckily for last minute shoppers, you can still get your gifts by Christmas Eve with free rush shipping today (and with $10 extra-rush shipping […]

Pink and Navy

 An easy go-to combination with a pretty blouse, colorful coat and embellished pumps for today. This holiday season we’ll be taking Lucia to the ballet for the first time to see the Nutcracker – she’s excited to wear a pretty dress and go to the ballet (although she asked if she gets to dance too!). […]


 Good morning and happy Tuesday! My very first Stella McCartney bag from LuisaViaRoma, the classic Falabella style. It’s such a great size – not too small, not too big…casual but refined at the same time. Spending the next few days prepping for the holidays with family, so much to do and so little time! Thanks for visiting […]


 Monday funday, hurray for a short week! Wearing this gorgeous top again (this time without a coat so the details show better!) and pairing it with these great wide-leg trousers. Gray all day! Thank you for visiting! *** Blouse – Derek Lam 10 Crosby (still available on sale in various sizes: here, here and here) […]

Casual Friday

 Happy Friday! Weekend goals: wrap, wrap, wrap away and ship it all off to friends and family. And hopefully head to the ice rink for a little holiday skate! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by! *** Coat – Derek Lam 10 Crosby (here | looking for a coat in the same […]


 Getting my hands on all of the holiday’s best textures with Old Navy: jacquard, velvet, wool and faux fur. Allover velvet or allover brocade can feel a bit daring, so I like to sprinkle in pieces here and there, creating layers of interest without overwhelming the look. Bring on the holiday festivities! Thank you for visiting […]


 A little silk scarf goes a long way, don’t you think? Trying to finish this year’s gift shopping list so that I can wrap and ship in time – wrapping is my favorite part of the whole process! Always down to the wire during the holidays and it’s no wonder everything always feels so hurried. […]


 Good morning and happy Tuesday! Getting dressed for the holidays with Intermix for today’s post, inspired by their holiday lookbook! Wearing a festive plaid top (love the sleeves – I’ll be wearing this top as often as I can!), a tweed jacket (nothing is more holiday than RED!), easy denim (for a touch of casual), and an […]

Bell Sleeve

 Good morning and happy Monday! I found the best $60 bell sleeve sweater (similar to the one I have worn several times by Tibi!). Pairing it with a more relaxed denim fit (my latest crush!) and the highest heels I own. Hope you have a good start to your week! *** Sweater – Topshop (here | […]


 ‘Tis the season: our mini Christmas tree is up, I’m wearing holiday tartan, and wrapping supplies are lined up and ready. I’ll be sharing a gift guide later this week with some of my go-to gifts under $100 (including this all-in-one body oil and this monogrammed leather passport case!) Thank you for visiting and hope your […]


 Good morning! A statement-making pink ruffled blazer has made its way into my closet and it feels, perhaps surprisingly, right at home. Also obsessed with this classic suede pump – it would be a dream to have one in every color! Got back from the Big Island yesterday – back to reality! Hope you’re having a […]

 In all white and a pop of red (lip and sole). I recently saw this sweater online at Nordstrom (for $149) and it reminded me exactly of the version I have from last year (I get compliments on it all the time!). It reminded me to pull out my boxed up fall and winter sweaters – […]


 Good morning and happy (cyber) Monday! These are the sales I’m clicking through today: for designer duds: Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Net-a-porter, Bergdorf Goodman for the best Theory workwear sale selection: here and here for my upcoming girls weekend in Hawaii: swimsuits here for Lucia: Zara (got her this dress for Christmas!) for early gift finds: beauty gifts here […]


 I’m partnering with Ann Taylor and getting into the holiday spirit by adding just a little bit of sparkle to my look. After all, a little goes a long way! I was excited to find these trousers at Ann Taylor: they are the perfect wide leg, flared and cropped cut (the style was what all […]

Thanksgiving in San Diego

 Good morning and happy Saturday! Having a wonderful Thanksgiving break in San Diego and can’t believe it’s almost time to head back home. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! *** Cape/shawl – Acne Studios from last year (the brand’s oversize wool sweater is 40% off here) Blouse – LOFT (I love this one because I […]


 Good morning and happy Black Friday! Coincidentally in an all black ensemble for today’s post wearing a pair of velvet boots I’d been eyeing at Nordstrom since they arrived several months ago – my statement velvet pick for the velvet-crazed season! I love embracing all the textures of the holiday season: jacquard, metallic knits (like this sweater […]

These embellished Jimmy Choo pumps are 40% off; this Victoria Victoria Beckham white blouse with […]

Navy & Gray

 Happy Wednesday and Thanksgiving Eve! Lucia’s starting to get the hang of holidays and the concept that they happen over and over again (after a long while anyway!). And especially the ones we get to spend with family, like Thanksgiving. What are your Thanksgiving plans? PS: I think I found the perfect party top here! Thank […]
