Chambray Shirtdress





Some weekends just call for a simple and casual outfit.  The shirtdress is the perfect answer.  It takes you from running errands to lunch to a coffee date.  I love this chambray version because it is a great color for spring and easy to style.  My new Converse kicks gives the whole look that ‘California casual’ vibe.  You’ll definitely be seeing this dress often on the blog!  I can’t wait to pair it with some wedge heels for a bit of glamour.

Happy Monday!  xoxo

Denim on Denim





Pairing denim with denim is just the perfect staple.  An almost neutral palette, it allows you to add color in many ways–in this case, a pair of orange patent pumps and some pink lips and accessories.  I would love to wear this again with a bright blazer and beige or black heels.  Also, this is one of the few times I put my hair up…had to, it was very warm outside!

What is your staple look?

Happy 1st of October!  Wow, how time flies.  To celebrate the new month, I decided to wear this jeweled short-sleeve sweatshirt.


It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the jewels have a purple hue and are hand-sewn onto the shirt.  The perfect combination of luxe and laid-back.



It’s going to be a busy month coming up, both in and outside of work, but I’m looking forward to every minute of it!

Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

Into the Blue

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!  Counting down to midnight has begun.

I spent my last Sunday in 2012 taking a stroll through San Francisco’s Ferry Building.  It was a gorgeous afternoon to walk around, grab a coffee, people watch, and visit all my favorite food vendors and stores in the Ferry Building.  How did you all spend your last weekend in 2012?  Hope you and yours have a wonderful New Year’s and best wishes in the new year!

I’m headed to LA this weekend to celebrate Christmas with the family.  I’ve been waiting patiently for this trip yet have already begun packing!  Since I will be spending much needed play time with four nieces (three of them are triplets!) I will be keeping the outfits comfortable and casual.  For fun and since it is the holidays, I will be throwing in a few accessories into the mix.  The A-thread necklace has been on repeat this month, because, well, it’s such a pretty statement piece!  I love this Gorjana wrap bracelet (sold out for now, but check their website here).  It is super chic and versatile.  The Baublebar jewelry and Coach purse are brand new so check back to see how I will be styling them!

Hope y’all have a wonderful holiday and spend lots of quality time with family and friends! I will be posting tomorrow, but will be taking a break on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Have a happy Friday!

Instagram Jam

So I have been thinking about what direction to push my blog towards going forward.  It looks like most of my readers and followers enjoy the fashion posts, particularly of unique finds and trends.  I’ve decided to start posting more of my own clothes and share how I style/accessorize these outfits.  In the meantime, here are some recent instagram snapshots of what I’ve been up to and my wardrobe highlights!
