Sharing some recent (and belated) photos from Instagram:

  • My daily morning routine in Taiwan was getting a cup of espresso
  • Shopping in Taiwan
  • During my most recent visit to Chicago, I walked along Lake Shore and saw the beautiful skyline
  • Every day at the beach in Bali, I tackled the New York Times crossword puzzle!
  • A view from the top of Rock Bar, a famous bar in Bali located right along the ocean

Hope you’re having a great week!  It’s another super busy week here in Silicon Valley…

Good morning and happy Thursday!  I have been traveling a lot lately and capturing images via Instagram.  Here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to from my Instagram page.  It is shaping up to be quite a busy summer and I will be back on the road again this Memorial Day long weekend!  Please find my latest photos on Instagram at EspressowithEm.  Have a great day!

We made it to Friday!  It has been a long, but good first week back from the holidays.  It’s been a while since I’ve shared some Instagram photos.  In case you haven’t been to EspressowithEm on Instagram, here’s what I’ve been up to during the past few weeks.  Hmm, a lot of espresso/coffee was consumed!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!  xoxo

It’s been a super busy week thus far at work.  Here are some Instagram snapshots of the last couple of days.  Photos are from a recent trip to Vegas (I was able to drive a Ferrari!), a wine tasting, delicious desserts, and other fun times from my weekends.  Enjoy and please follow me at EspressowithEm on Instagram for more recent photos!

Hope you are having a wonderful week!  xoxo

During J.Crew’s sale a few weeks back, I bought this gorgeous blue scarf.  It’s hard to see the details on the scarf, but there’s a pretty black and coral pattern on it.  I wore it last week and have received so many compliments.  Le sigh…I could definitely buy J.Crew’s entire scarf collection.

The third photo is one I took of a beautiful archway in Sonoma at Benziger Winery.  Romantic, isn’t it?

Scarf: J.Crew (also loving this one) / Pants: J.Crew Minnie (on sale!) / Shirt: J.Crew (love these) / Coat: Old, from Asia

ImageImageHappy Monday everyone!  I’m sharing with you some outfits I wore recently for a dinner and for a fun Sunday shopping for home decor.


I recently added these Pour La Victoire heels to the repertoire and love wearing them.  Classic cool in black, they are just the right height to amplify a simple skirt.  Also, I am loving this buttery, warm Botkier purse.  It is the perfect accompaniment for a fall outfit.


I added to the daily mix this BCBG Edie Duffle Bag.  Great color and functionality means I can use it for both work and play!  It also comes in kelly green, dusty saffron, and color-blocked styles.  It is a favorite in my rotation right now.  This weekend I scored this  vintage jewelry bust from a flea market.  The black and cream makes it very French, no?

Any new additions to your wardrobe or accessories closet these days?

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!
