Hoi An & Quy Nhon

 4th & 5th stops: Hoi An & Quy Nhon. Hoi An is a wonderful, charming little city. We toured the countryside by bicycle, peddling through narrow pathways between rice paddies and along the riverfront scenery. It was enough to work up an appetite for a 9 course meal in town (spicy clam soup! crispy fish […]


 Cozy in cashmere for a windy, windy day last week. For the colder days, I layer heat-tech long sleeve shirts by Uniqlo under my sweaters (it’s life-changing!). I could probably use the same for my legs, ha! Hope you’re having a great week so far! *** Cashmere sweater – thanks to TSE (from last season) […]

 The husband gifted me with some tennis lessons to start the year and I can’t wait to get going! The last few times we’ve played, my chief concern has been to hit the ball… period.  Hopefully in a few months’ time I’ll be able to hit the ball at the right time and to the […]

Great Lengths

 The sun is out but the temperature has finally dropped to a California “wintery” 61-degrees. Cozy layers and longer lengths for today’s look! 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 […]


 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 […]

White and Gray

 Last year, my husband and I bought Lucia separate holiday gifts so that we could surprise each other (she was, after all, only 5 months old!). Now at 16 months, she loves opening presents, getting mail is her favorite time of day (and she reminds us if we haven’t gotten it yet!), and she loves […]

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 […]


 I’m not huge fan of one-hit wonders for holiday dresses (although there’s always a good reason for one of those sometimes!). I like a dress that’s going to be wearable long after the holiday decorations have disappeared (and bonus points if they can work for work too!). This L’Agence dress from Nordstrom is pretty on […]

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, […]

 New season, new skincare routine? I think yes! Over the last few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to try the full suite of brightening products from Equitance, a Japanese skincare brand with over 18 years of research in dark spots and discolorations (& recently launched in the US!). The timing for me could not have […]


 Happy Friday! I’m spending the next 4 days or so in New York – can’t wait to see friends new and old, experience a handful of shows and explore the city with Kristine. It’s going to be a fun girl’s trip! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for visiting! *** […]

Feeling Fall

 Since it’s rapidly approaching September, transitional Fall dressing can start now, right? I’ve been obsessing over some of the new season arrivals (see my wishlist below!), but one seasonless item item that’s been on my mind for quite some time now are these simple black Givenchy heels from LuisaViaRoma. They might soon become one of […]


 Good morning! With a big launch happening (hopefully) later this year, work has kept me busy and looking firmly ahead. I can’t wait to share more! PS: I finally found the perfect modern blouse (here) for my high-waisted wide-leg trousers – time to bring out my old favorites and make them new again! *** Blouse – […]

Mint & Mustard

 Whether it’s a result of Lucia’s arrival last year or due to our move out of Nob Hill (a short walk from Union Square) a month later, one thing is for sure: a majority of my shopping is done online now. I like checking in on my favorite sites’ new arrivals sections, something I do […]

Summer Suit

 When PayPal and Neiman Marcus asked me to contribute to their summer style guide, I knew exactly what I wanted to share: my summer suit. This version might not be for office hours (although it could easily be with an ankle length pant or even a longer bermuda-style short, depending on the dress code!) but it’s certainly […]

Pink & Navy

 Happy Friday! I’m sporting a more slouchy look for work today, inspired by my new pink & gold-tone Ray-Bans from Nordstrom. Nothing says “it’s about to be summer” more than a new pair of shades! PS: I have a wide face – it is SO helpful that Nordstrom actually lists the temple length of each […]

Black & White

 A testament to the value of an investment piece: I bought this classic pencil skirt as a young professional just entering the workforce (on clearance at a Neiman Marcus Last Call – it was a huge splurge for me at the time!). Many black pencil skirts have come and gone since then, but this is […]


 Experimenting with an all-blue look. It might be more practical than an all-white look (in terms of getting little smudges and stains throughout the day), but somehow feels much more daring. Happy Thursday!! *** Top – thanks to Warehouse (under $75 here) Skirt – Zara (still available in a beige/pink color here) Bracelet – J.Crew […]


 I’m thoroughly enjoying my new job and the flexibility I have while doing it! Suddenly it seems like all of the anxiety I had over making such a major industry change was unfounded. One day it might make sense to go back to the medical industry (it is, after all, where my passion lies) but […]

Blue & Khaki

 Life has been incredibly busy lately: work has started to take off (in a good way!), friends and family have been visiting and staying with us  (and we absolutely love it!), and Lucia seems to require more and more attention by the day (growing so fast!). We can’t take our eyes off her for even […]
