monday already?


Ever have one of those weekends that just fly by? I had a great weekend- spent it celebrating a friend's birthday, doing every last bit of laundry (all four loads of it), and squelching an Egg McMuffin craving by making my own version- but it just wasn't long enough. I say we ask for a redo! Who's with me? And who's heading to Lucky FABB this week?! I can't wait.

aesthetics

{VS Pink schoolboy blazer, by Luciana tee gifted, silk scarf, Zara skinny jeans, J. Crew heels (similar), lipstick: mix of two Milani colors, Kardashian Kollection sunglasses}

It's important to me that fashion is comfortable but it's not often that it is- sky high heels, super tight skinny jeans- the things we do for fashion, right? This by Luciana tee changed all of that for me. The supremely soft jersey texture, the roomy fit (feels like a very chic pair of pj's to me), and not to mention the simplistically chic logo that makes this a standout repeater piece to me.

I styled this tee a little more "done-up" with my favorite- the red lips (a blend of two shades)- and a silk scarf which feels a little bit French, threw on my signature blazer, and since we can't let fashion fall by the wayside on those sky-high heels went!

vivid florals

{Zara pinstripe blazer, Madewell chambray gifted, Prabal Gurang for Target dress (another cute style), Sam Edelman Posey booties gifted via DSW, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli}

You guys, this dress makes me so happy! It was one of those pieces that was definitely overlooked when I was planning out my Prabal x Target purchase on the eve before the release. But when I saw it in person- the varying textures, the drop waist, and the vividness of the color- it had me sold. I wear this dress lots, and even a few times on the blog- remember this, and this time? I anticipate getting a lot of wear out of this gem all spring!

overall

{Obey overalls c/o, Target striped top, FashionElles bomber jacket (similar), Zara stud loafers, vintage scarab necklace (similar), Katie Dean feather necklace, Bally purse, rings:vintage, Katie Dean, Fiat Lux, Hermes}

I'm a little bit obsessed with these overalls. They are super comfortable and have great potential to be equally dressed up for something a little more formal- think an asymmetrical blazer, sharp pumps, and a swipe of done-up red lips! I foresee a great deal of outfit repeats in these guys, especially since my guy digs these on me.

my moments: last week



You know when you have a rough start to the week, but by the time the middle of the week rolls around it picks up and things get good again? Well that was last week for me. I had an awful first few days, had a pretty good middle of the week, and an even better weekend! 

I was lucky enough to be able to attend a few events, and even hosted my Bloomies COLLECTIVE event on Thursday. We had the cutest red velvet-glitter cake pops, French 75 cocktails, and mini Sofia champagne cans for guests as well as all the latest spring trends like Clover Canyon, Tibi and Milly! It was a ton of fun- thanks so much to all my SF friends who came out to support!

I kicked off Friday night with a bottle of La Marca that I've been saving for some time now, and realized I didn't need a bigger celebration that that fact that it was Friday, and I made it through another week. So I dusted off my fancy gold-rimmed champagne flutes and poured myself a glass…or two.

Saturday mourning I started my day with a boot camp class, and finally dug though some fabulous beauty products that were graciously gifted to me. Let's just say I'm obsessed with a lighter spring palette and can't wait to share my favorites with you! Later that day I took a little trip into the city and visited the ever-so-sweet Kate Dean Jewelry team at their sample sale at the Bell Jar boutique in the Mission. And as dusk rolled around I ended my evening engrossed in a fascinating cocktail making workshop. We learned the proper way to make yummy drinks like a Negroni, a Manhattan and even an Old-Fashioned! 

Overall, it was one of the better weekends I've had in a while, and that didn't even include Sunday. Here's hoping we all have a good one again this time around!

off-duty

 
{Zara jacket (similar style), thrifted denim jacket, Zara dress (similar drop-waist style), customized Reebok sneakers, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli, NYX Indie Flick lipstick, SEE mirror sunglasses, TOKYObay watch (similar styles)}

I was able to customize my very own pair of Reebok's awhile back and of course I wanted the casual feel of the everyday sneaker in the brightest colors possible- so neon it was! The colors seem a bit intimidating but they really go with everything from something a bit more off-duty casual like this, to the all-black ensemble you saw on my instagram not too long ago.

stripes & tweed

{Zara overcoat (similar), H&M tweed shift, Uniqlo shirt (similar), Dior tights, Zara studded loafers}

I don't do the buttoned up professional look often- but when it happens I think I clean up quite nice. ;)

By the way, I'm hosting an event at Bloomingdales tomorrow night, hope you can make it!

my favorites

{Wallis jacket (similar) c/o, Uniqlo shirt (similar), Asos bowtie, J. Crew denim, J. Crew Valentina heels, handbag via Prague, Forever 21 beanie}

Some of these items- like my beanie, white button-up oxford, and bow-tie, ok all of them- are pieces I just can't live without. They are definitely some of my favorites and have a tendency to get wore quite often. What are some of your favorite closet staples?

the lab event recap

 


These past few weekends I've been a busy lady. From checking out wedding venues to attending and walking in The Lab Event's (a bridal fair) runway show--I'm really, finally, doing some I-just-got-engaged wedding stuff. And it's pretty exciting!

If you already follow my instagram account you'll have seen snaps from the event. Everything from me strutting my stuff in a big poufy white gown with lashes for days, to a girly cocktail called 'Blushing Bride' in the perfect coupe- which got a ton of love!

I had an amazing time with some of my favorite SF bloggers and my beautiful sister who came out to support me. The vendors came prepared with beautiful vignettes and yummy sweets- from lavender fudge mini-pots to salted caramel macaroons- it was all delicious and I can't wait to start taste testing for my own big day!

Thanks for having me, The Lab, looking forward to this fabulous event next year.
