On this day many people feel resentment when spending this day alone, but what most people forget is the relationship you have with yourself is the most important than any relationship. If you're single, why not spend the day "doing you" and prioritizing self-care and compassion.
There's nothing like feeling your absolute best around Valentine's Day. Whether you're single and ready to mingle or if you're in a committed relationship, it's the time of year when we're back in rhythm and groovin' after the holidays. We can see light at the end of the Winter Blues tunnel are looking forward to Spring. For me, this is the time of year I start getting antsy to book a trip or plan to head somewhere with warmer weather.
Culottes and cropped jeans are my absolute favorite to wear during Spring. I love them so much that I hate to just let them just gather dust on my shelves in the Winter, so I found a way to incorporate them in to my Winter looks. I don’t think they look that great with booties, but when I tried them with a tall boot it was a game changer!
Sometimes I find an item while shopping and I can close my eyes and see all the items I would wear it with. That's exactly what happened when I saw this beautiful suede skirt. I first thought I could go for for the monochromatic look with a wine on wine color scheme pairing a chunky knit sweater, fun booties & of course this statement skirt.
Can we talk about how fringe came back in a bold way this year? From sweaters, to bags, jackets, earrings and shoes. It's back with vengeance & I'm the first to hop on that trend train.
Starting the New Year with big goals is always exciting. It can also be a bit daunting if you're jumping in full throttle & you've never been successful at achieving your goals thus far. When it comes to fitness, I see people start out strong every year. The first week after New Years the gym is packed and it's hard for me to find a spot where I can workout, but by week 6 the crowd is usually gone. Motivation isn't something you can just bottle up & sell, if it were that easy everyone would be motivated and there the 6th week after New Years. Here are five of my biggest tips to help you get and stay motivated.
Whoever said "You can't wear white after labor day" has definitely never read an issue of Vogue magazine in December. Winter Whites have been "in" for a while and I don't see them going anywhere any time soon. There is something about a combo of whites that makes an outfit look super chic.
When heading to the Ferry Building Farmers Market I paired my most comfy mom jeans with a chunky knit sweater & some sneaks. There's nothing I love more than looking stylish, but also being super comfortable. This look is easy to replicate with stuff you already have in your closet. Why not step out of the box and switch things up a bit?
I found girlfriend collective recently while scrolling on instagram. I knew I needed to try their line, when I saw their amazing Poloma sports bra, modeled on curvy girls. Finding a comfortable, cute & supportive bra is tough for me as I'm quite busty. When I got it in the mail & saw the fit, I fell in love with the line.
Some holiday parties you have to pull out all the stops. Dresses, high heels and all the va-va-voom you can bring. However, there are SO many parties to attend & not all of them are places you need to be super dressy. For those nice dinners, company happy hours or holidays show you can totally wear something like a sweater and fun pants.
This city is my favorite for so many reasons, but one of the big ones is the food and drink. New restaurants and shops open up weekly and I feel like there's always a place to go. I want to share with you my favorite coffee spots, brunch spots, dinner spots and places to hit up for good cocktails
Twenty eight was the year of learning for me. I look back and am in awe of how much i've emotionally matured in the last 365 days. I went through some ups and downs and have learned so much. I want to share some of my biggest learnings..
Holiday parties are so fun to dress up for. I just love getting all dolled up, slipping on a fun outfit and dancing the night away. I have been trying to be better about not shopping too much (trying is the key word) and I have been putting myself on a budget.
This dress may have actually whispered "buy me" when I walked by it in the store. Maybe I'm crazy, but this bad boy needed me and I needed it. Isn't this the most perfect taupe beige and the most fun cut? It's by far my favorite Fall item i've purchased this year.
What you really need in your life this year are the perfect basics. Yes, keepin' it simple. To be honest, most of my closet is filled with basics that I love & from there I just layer fun things with it. My must-haves for this season are high waist light wash ripped jeans, black booties and a black turtle neck.
Do you recognize this jumpsuit? Well, it's likely because you've seen me wear it a ton throughout the Summer. I wore it out to dinner on vacation, to a friends wedding and to a birthday party. When I buy something nice, I want to make sure I can get my use out of it. I paired what was marketed as a summer jumpsuit, with a turtle neck and immediately got a whole new outfit from this piece.
You guys know I'm obsessed with jumpsuits, but did you know I also have a real obsession for culottes as well? There's nothing more amazing than being able to dress up and still be comfortable. Sorry, but I can't lie to you all. I can't last a night in stilettos or a bandage dress. It's just not my jam. I want to feel confident, comfortable & still super stylish when I go out. These culottes are one of my holiday staples.
Thanksgiving is just a few days away you guys. I have a Friendsgiving to head to and a big family Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house this week. One of my favorite things about the holidays is the fashion. On my moms side of the family, the ladies are SO fashionable. Last year my aunt walked in the door with a silk jumpsuit and a faux-fur coat. My other aunt is a huge thrifter, so she always shows off her designer steals styled from head-to-toe. My cousin Caity is also super fashion-forward and always has a new knit sweater, leather legging or bag to show off.
I am newly obsessed with Boba, specifically Boba Guys in SF. My friend Tamryn (@wannabefashionblogger) blogs about them all the time and raves about how amazing and delicious it is. I had to try it for myself & when I tried her signature drink, I was like... ok I get it. She gets the Iced Matcha Latte (with OatMylk, boba, and no sweetener) & this stuff is crack. I swear you'll have to try it for yourself, it's that good!
There's nothing like the weather getting cooler & a little crisp, prepping for all the fun holiday events coming your way & finishing up your final deadlines at work. Isn't there just really something special about knowing that in just a few days you'll get the chance to spend some quality time to celebrate and relax with friends and family? Today I woke up, got a coffee (and a waffle) & took some time to plan out my holiYAYs.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, can you believe it's just 10 days away? What better way to dress for the holiday than in something Fall-ish & comfortable. Jumpsuits have been my go-to holiday outfit choice for a few years now for a few major reasons. Jumpsuits are usually very breathable (eat the cake & say no to corsets). I love that there are so many styles out now that you can find that flatter YOUR body. I also just love that they are an entire outfit in one (no need to buy separates).
