pink suede

Never have I been more obsessed with the color pink than now. I was never a pink girl growing up. I decided at an early age that I'd go against the grain and proclaim my undying affinity for purple as my forever favorite color. Pink reminded me of bubble gum, and vanilla, and all things sweet and girly- which I was not- and yet for some reason these very pink, very girly, bubblegum-hued-booties have me pinning for this muted shade. If I could wear a suit entirely made up of this color I would. But you already knew that.

sunny days ahead

Don't you just love it when the weekend has an unexpected warm streak? When you can wear all white, show some skin and say goodbye to your felt hats? Well, we're not quite there yet, but definitely headed in the right direction. This is me being optimistic. The slightest hint of blue sky and an average of high 60's has me thinking sunny days ahead, happy hours on the patio, and rosé instead of red. And hell, why not? If they say dress for the job you want, then why not dress for the weather you want? 

Here's to a sane Monday and the path to a quick Friday.

couchella


{Ilano pillow c/o, Kohl's Deer head, Target faux-fur throw, Catherine Ellen Candles c/o}

While all you fabulous people were out at Coachella the last few weekends, I was here... Couchella. Oh hell, who am I kidding? I reside here most evenings after work, and when there is an important marathon to watch, Game of Thrones anyone? So this space needs to be relaxing and happy for me. It's also one of the places that is constantly being updated and "redone" to reflect the time of year. With Festival Season barely starting and the warmer temps heating up I'm in full redecorating mode, and this setup is exactly where I want to "live" on my down time. 

The ultimate for me are vivid colors with an interesting texture. That's why these Ilano pillows are everything! I can't get over the bohemian feel and brightness they bring to my space. Besides being beautiful there are two things I love about them- they are handwoven wool on one side and leather on the other (!), and they are made in Oaxaca, Mexico by generations of women master weavers who have been featured in the Smithsonian Museum. Impressive and beautiful. What do you guys think, anyone else need one of these Ilano pillows on their couch?

windy day


Weekends just make me happy. Anyone else with me? This one in particular was awesome. Windy days in floral, flowy skirts and good company make for fabulous days off. What did you do this weekend?

printed poodles

I used to have a thing for matchy-matchy separates worn together, oh who am I kidding, I still do but recently I'm seen rocking them in a more minimal way. Take for instance this blazer, it's fabulous, no? Take a closer look now. Yep, you got it- they're poodles! I'll never get rid of this blazer because of the fun, cheeky print. I have the matching skirt too (of course I do), one day I'll wear them together just for you.

fade into

These images aren't my typical outfit photos but there was something beautiful about the way they came out and I wanted to share them with you! I almost look like a different person which is interesting. The pulled back hair is something I love to do- it's a bit masculine and I enjoy pairing it with a bold lip to feminize the look. What do you guys think?

la days

{Clover Canyon dress c/o Bloomingdales, Ash Sandals, SheInside blazer, SEE tortoise sunnies}

Everyone have a good weekend? Mine was lovely, alas, as always it was too short. Isn't that always the case though? This is the full outfit post from day one of Lucky FABB. I was going for business-chic and this Clover Canyon dress was exactly what I needed to pull it off. The studded wedge sandals and the white blazer were the perfect extras to style this little number with.

lucky fabb: rooftop sunset

{SheInside blazer c/o, Clover Canyon dress c/o Bloomingdales, Ash sandals, TOKYObay watch}


At the end of everyday at Lucky FABB the ladies and I ended our day at the SLS rooftop pool. Whether it was enjoying mini bottles of La Marca at sunset, or sunning ourselves right next to Coco Rocha in her gym gear it was always nice to end up here and go over the days events. Here are some outtakes from a mini photoshoot my girl Donna shot. It's so Miami Vice right?! Stay tuned tomorrow for the rest of this look.

pj's



A super easy and relaxed look for the first night of Lucky FABB, I wore these faux-pj pants on the flight to Los Angeles and threw on fun extras and heels to complete my night-out look! By the way if you follow me on my instagram, I cut my hair (!), this is the first of many outfit posts to show you how to style shorter curly hair. Happy Tuesday, ya'll!

my moments: lucky FABB recap


If you follow me on my Instagram you know I spent this past weekend in Los Angeles for the Lucky FABB conference, a fashion and beauty blogger conference. The conference was held at the SLS, but I stayed at the lovely boutique Crescent Hotel right down the street, so much better in my opinion. This is my third year in a row attending the West Coast conference. I met up with my fellow SF blogger ladies there and we had a blast attending panels, sipping cocktails by the pool at the end of each day, and catching up! Here are some of my favorite pictures, from my daily outfit shots, to the moment when Lucky magazine Instagrammed my heels on the last day!
