We got a little head start on Spring last week (70s and sunny!), just in time to finally seek out winter – we’re heading to Tahoe this weekend! Lucia first saw snow one morning in Kyoto, but it wasn’t nearly enough to build a snowman or have a snowball fight (that’s what she’s most excited for!). Crossing fingers for some snow!

Back tomorrow with an outfit (and a peek into my typical day), can’t wait to share! Thanks for stopping by!

 Good morning and happy Valentine’s Day! Today’s an office day in the city – it’s a fun break compared to working from home. Plus I’ll be able to pop into a little shop to pick up some Valentine’s Day treats for Lucia before I head home.

Did you know that 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy It Now” option? I’ve been checking eBay before I buy anything because I can often find it there for less. Case in point: this Tory Burch satchel (with a longer detachable strap!) from their Tory Burch Valentine’s Day sale here. I love the rich camel color and inside it has 3 sections (one zippered) for organizing my things. A few more of my favorites: this smaller crossbody bag, this tall tote bag in camel, and this classic shoulder bag in beige.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you’re having a great week!

 Pulling out an old polo-style top after seeing a few styles catch my eye in new arrivals sections of stores I frequent (see below!). Have you been watching the Olympics? We have been glued to the TV watching athletes in all sports – always inspiring to watch. My favorite? Figure skating, of course! Hope you had a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by!
