outfit // plaid + a puffer











I wore a very similar look to this one when I headed upstate the other weekend for the 2014 annual #falliday with my girlfriends. We obviously went all out with plaid (similar to last year!) and I adore the fit of this J.Crew flannel plaid button down. The vest? My roommate loved it so much she promptly purchased it as well. It’s thin enough that it doesn’t add bulk (which nobody needs.) And a good pop of red? Clearly I’m a fan as seen here and here.

This ensemble was worn during my parents’ visit when I took Friday off to explore downtown with them and see The Tenement Museum and find my very own set of wings. I have a great track record trusting Joie for comfortable shoes so I added these gray beauties to my Fall wardrobe rotation during the Piperlime Friends & Family sale a few weeks ago (I actually adore the suede version, too).

And a quick PSA for the lipstick I’m wearing in this post- it’s Laura Mercier (color is Red Amour)  and I received it as a part of this program and instantly fell in love. It’s a red that’s not overwhelming or too striking so it’s wearable during the daytime, it goes on soooo smoothly and has staying power.

Hope you have a great Thursday! I’ll be spending mine reveling in The Giants winning the World Series last night – wishing I was back in my old home of San Francisco for it!

Outfit: J.Crew Buffalo Check Shirt + Puffer Vest // Joie Boots  (in black here) // Gap Jeans (last seen here) // Lauren Ralph Lauren Bag (c/o), Karen Walker Sunglasses (sold out most places!), Michael Kors Watch (c/o TenGems)

outfit // travel style








I travel routinely for both work and pleasure throughout the year and have gotten to be an A+ carry on traveler (if I do say so myself). The perfect bag for everything you want tucked under your seat and to accompany your roller bag? The Lo & Sons OMG Bag. It was designed by, in my opinion, a sheer genius as it as so many great features that make it perfect for travel and also my go-to gym bag.

First, the adjustable back panel sleeve works to secure the bag over your luggage handle (ready, set, go!) And oh the pockets! I always hate the feeling when you’re digging and riffling through your bag unable to find anything so the fact that this bag has a main compartment with a padded pocket for your laptop, a smaller padded pocket for your iPad or files, 1 small zipper pocket for keys and other valuables and two smaller open pockets for extras is so.darn.convenient. One more yet even? A side pocket for shoes or heels and a front zippered compartment with internal pockets and a key leash.

I wore this outfit as I headed West the other week to Lake Tahoe  (not first before fueling up at my favorite neighborhood caffeine spot). A cozy tee, deconstructed denim and boots or my chucks have become my go-to when traveling. This other Lo & Sons bag is also on my wish list for future travels. What are your travel essentials?

Outfit: Old Navy tee, Gap jeans (on sale!), Lo & Sons OMG Bag (c/o and on sale now), Ray Ban Aviators, Michael Kors watch, Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet, Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers

outfit // casual kicks





For some reason last Monday I woke up and dressed like it was Fall…despite the 70+ degree temps. I guess I’m missing my denim and layers routine but my hair instantly went POUF when I stepped outside and by the time I reached work after my 30 minute daily routine heading into work, I was less than thrilled about my outfit choice. Must have had Monday brain I guess? Anyhow I still can’t get enough of this Rebecca Taylor jacket and have kept it in rotation in the office when the AC is blasting.

Did you have a good weekend? I had train troubles to/from Washington D.C. but had a great time visiting my godmother in Georgetown where laughter and amazingly deep sleeps always are common themes.  Happy Monday, all!

Outfit: Joie tank, Rebecca Taylor jacket, Gap jeans, Converse sneakers, Vince Camuto bag (recently seen here), Karen Walker sunglasses
