Summer time in SF

Dress: Aritzia
Sunnies: Prada

This photo set was taken in what I called the prime San Francisco summer weather. Which is also known as windy, overcast and freezing. It definitely fits the bill for that classic San Francisco summer fling mood. Hope you all had a nice 4th of July, and wishing everyone a fabulous Tuesday!

Dress: Topshop x Kate Moss
Bag: Celine
Shoes: Zara

When I first saw this dress in TopShop, I was actually a bit torn on how I feel about it. I loved the cellulite but wasn't sure if it was special enough to pull the plug. I spend over an hour at the store (how can you not, the store is awesome!), and this was the last dress I tried on. In the end, it was the slightly suggestive zipper design that won me over.

Wishing you all a very happy and safe fourth of July!

There's something so sweet about a simple floral dress. The cut, the light fabric, and the perfect print make this the outfit for any easy summer days. I added a pair of silver oxford and structured bag to add a little edge to the feminine feel. Now I'm ready for long late night strolls and some ice cream! Happy summer!


Slip into summer

A funny story with this dress. A couple weeks ago, my sister and I met up to go shopping. While I had in mind to find a perfect summer dress, she needed to pick up a dress she already ordered. 

While browsing, I came across the gorgeous slip-like-dress by Alice & Olivia. Needless to say, I feel in love immediately. During my hunt to track down the dress in store that's in my size, my sister went off to customer service to pick up a separate dress she ordered online a while back. 

And as luck will have it, the store ran out of dress in my size. In the mist of my disappointment, my sister magically re-appeared in front of me with the biggest grin on her face. Turns out, the dress she had purchased was the exact dress, in the exact size that I was looking for! We had a good laugh about how sisters really do think alike, and then I proceed to persuade her to let me buy the dress from her. Luckily for me, she agreed and I was able to slip into the summer season in this effortless dress all thanks to some "Unagi" power (if you watch Friends, you will know what I'm talking about)!

Hope you all have a great weekend!


Ripped and distressed

Life has been hectic lately, but I also couldn't be happier at this point in my life with all the changes and new beginnings. To top it off, Marcus and his wife finally came home after their almost three weeks of vacation abroad! Which also means I get my Saturday brunch buddies back and my photographer as well. Win!

For the record, if I could, I think I would live in jeans all day everyday. Unfortunately for me, looking for the "perfect" match has always been ridiculously difficult. That is, until I found this pair by AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans. I can't begin to tell you how comfortable it is. While this pair is a splurge, the fit, fabric, comfort and style were all characteristic of what my ideal jeans soulmate would be like (if there is such a thing). Either way, I am pretty certain that this pair of distressed denim will be making multiple appearances throughout the summer, fall, winter, spring.. you get the picture.
