3 Things.

Even though my long week at the beach is now over, S and I still managed to find some fun in the city before settling back into reality. Currently, I'm trying to avoid this at all costs, but failing miserably. Happy Monday to those of you who are finding themselves at work today, you're good people. And an even happier Monday to those fortunate enough to have the day off - you're smart people.

1. Quality time spent with my darling grandmother - priceless.

2. Heading to The Fillmore to see S's favorite band, The Devil Makes Three

3. Riding around town with the cutest co-pilot #teamZiggy

Friday Blues.

Everlane cardigan // Gap shirt // Kut from the Kloth jeans // JCrew scarf // Crown Vintage booties // Gucci handbag // VonZipper sunglasses

This week away at the beach has gone by far too quickly, but you know what they say about having fun - time flies. I'm spending my last day away layered up and enjoying the Santa Cruz sunshine. I hope your holiday has treated you well. xo

Cherished Moments.

Feeling peaceful this morning walking along the beach with my grandmother as she tells stories about her life. These are the moments I live for. 

Happy Thursday!

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and fashionable holiday! xo

Merry, Merry.

Merry Everything. Happy Whatever. It's not about which holiday you celebrate. It's about who you celebrate with. xo

3 Things.

After work on Friday, S, Ziggy and I piled into the car and headed to the beach to get started celebrating the holidays. Unfortunately, S woke up Saturday morning with a fever and I quickly quarantined him so that the rest of the household didn't catch whatever it was that he had caught. I kept busy by decorating the house for Christmas, wrapping presents and went to dinner with my mom at the Rock Room. S is on the mend and my grandmother arrives tomorrow. Now, it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas.

1. Morning views over brunch

2. Piping hot chicken noodle soup for my sick guy

3. Holiday cookie decorating

Bundled Up.

Gloomy days call for layers and hot chocolate. Stay warm out there!

3 Things.

With back to back to back holiday and birthday parties from Thursday thru Saturday, this weekend was busy celebrating. This is my first holiday living with S and have had so much fun introducing him to some of traditions I share with family and friends. We even created a few traditions of our own. 

1. Season's greetings with my boo.

2. Abominable snowman ice luge = Best Holiday part. Ever.

3. Cozy Sunday nights at home {recovering from the crazy weekend}

Happy Birthday.

Today, I'm celebrating the best man I know, my dad. Thank you for your love, protection and that beautiful face. xoxo

3 Things.

Apparently I missed the memo about the rain hitting San Francisco on Friday evening and ended up walking home in the rain without an umbrella. After this chilly experience, I dedicated my weekend to all things relaxing and warm. From sleeping in to taking in a movie to watching the 49ers win from my cozy bed, I did accomplished exactly what I had set out to do.

1. Friday night rainfall - I love it so much from indoors, but not so much through it after a long week at work

2. Matinee day date with my boo

3. Waking up to this sweet face each morning. Love.

Happy Friday.

I love waking up to an email from Gilt notifying me that the cutest Dolce Vita booties from my wishlist are now available. Happy Friday indeed!

Lip Therapy.

How darling is this blinged out container? Certainly enough to bring a little sparkle to your day. Love.

Lesson Learned.

During a recent trip to New York, I came across a simple Conair blow dryer that has taken my hair game to a new level - not only did it cut my dry time in half, my hair looked fantastic each day. Admittedly, I've never been one to spend much on hair products, but the reality is, you wear your hair everyday. And that alone is reason enough to upgrade your hair care products immediately.

3 Things.

There's nothing I love more than spending time with my Grandmother - she's the cutest little thing ever! A few years ago, I made her a promise that my mom and I would spend Thanksgiving at her home in Texas going forward. It's fun to pause for a moment and spend time with the ones you love the most. One things for sure, there is never a shortage of laughs with those two.

1. Something old, something new - my grandmother's Nantucket High School class ring from 1946. Haven't taken it off since I put it on.

2. Finding this lovely photo of my dressed as a cowgirl. That hair!

3. Goofing around with my favorite traveling partner, my mom.

Holiday Cheer.

S and I headed over to Everlane's (stunning) office this past Saturday to view the Fall collection and toast to the holiday season kicking off things just right.

Thursday, November 28, 2013


For having the live I've always dreamt of. For my family, my friends, my fiance, and my Ziggy. Thankful for the places I've traveled to and excited for those I've yet to discover. Thankful for my crazy mind that few understand; they truly see me for who I am and make me strive to be better. Thankful for all the creativity and inspiration around me. Thankful for the bad days that make the good ones a million times better. Thankful for living this life and so much more to come. Happy Thanksgiving! xo

Fall Flat.

Fall Flats

Chanel 1920s shoes / Bionda Castana oxford shoes / Charlotte Olympia cat flat shoes / Versace leather flat / 3.1 Phillip Lim leopard print shoes, $660 / Zara black moccasin / ASOS pointy flat / Carvela Kurt Geiger patent leather shoes, $64

I'm a firm believer, a girl can never have too many pairs of flats, especially living in a city with so many hills. Here are a few options I'm currently weighing to add to my collection. Love.

3 Things.

This weekend was packed full of activities from birthday celebrations to visiting with my dad to a Summer preview at Everlane's showroom. But even with the busy schedule, we managed to find that right amount of down time to actually enjoy the weekend. This balancing quality is one I admire in S and love that he has introduced this to me. Before I would either be go, go, go or lazy for an entire weekend, but now really making the most of it all.

1. Ziggy enjoying the sunshine on his chair

2. Cool things we see hanging out in SOMA

3. Celebrating another year of greatness that is my godfather

Something Navy.

Everlane shirt // Kut from the Kloth jeans // Charles Jourdan heels // Dockers sunglasses

It doesn't get much simpler (and comfortable) than jeans and a tee. I kicked things up a notch by adding great pair of pumps. California casual.

Been Dreaming About You.

This stylish wedge compliments every look with ease. I can't believe I lived without this long.

3 Things.

After a long week in New York City, a quiet weekend at home was exactly what I needed, although not exactly what I got. All-in-all, it was a productive, yet restful weekend.

1. Reuniting with my favorite guy, Ziggy. Love him!

2. Lunch of champions with my mom. Sometimes, Pinkberry makes everything better.

3. Stunning views from a walk in the park.

Sunset Take Off.

Although busy, I had such a great time in New York this week. Looking forward to catching up on sleep this weekend!
