I am back in San Francisco and could not be more pleased! While Las Vegas is great (for a night) there is nothing like coming home to my city by the bay!
Putting this look together was not easy…
(maybe laundry + unpacking are in my future)
But, it did force me to get creative + pull together a look filled with a few of my favorite San Francisco brands!
What I Wore:
Jacket: Gap, 1969 Denim Jacket
Tank: Banana Republic, Essential Cami
Skirt: Banana Republic, Eyelet-Hem Angled Skirt
Boots: Sutro, Ellis Lace Boots
After a brief hiatus, I am back to blogging! I have been busy at the shop, rocking out at Outside Lands and now recovering from Outside Lands in wine country.
Monday morning I dragged my ass out of bed and hit the road to meet up with the girls (and Benji) in Cloverdale. Cloverdale is about 10/15 minutes north of Healdsburg in Sonoma County and filled with all the secret treasures.
Our first stop was Pick’s Drive-In. This old school burger joint is the perfect place to snag a milkshake and force your friends into an impromptu photo shoot!
The Clover Theater looks like the perfect date night spot and at $7 a ticket it won’t break the bank!
And Cloverdale just got an amazing new addition, Trading Post Market & Bakery. Right now just the bakery is open while they finish final renovations for the restaurant, but trust me it is worth checking it out. We snagged some bread before heading over to Ruth McGowans Brew Pub + the ‘meat & cheese’ focaccia was gone after just one beer!
So….on your next wine country adventure be sure to stop by Cloverdale
(and eat all the focaccia)!

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of spending my afternoon
shopping browsing the AMAZING couture collection at Joy Bianchi’s, Helpers House of Couture. Now Joy throws some major events in San Francisco and this was one of them. On top of the MAJOR collection of couture, she already houses in her 3 homes that line Golden Gate Park this was event celebrated the lives of Amber Marie Bentley and Oscar de la Renta.
Now, what does one wear to this kind of an event?
My closet is not filled with couture so I had to make it work! After a major hunt, I found this Chanel blouse (who knew) that I scored on Poshmark for $100 years ago. After all the wardrobe changes, I ended up looking like an amazing mix of Joy Bianchi and Carmen Sandiego…perfect.
I found this killer throwback picture of me wearing a McQueen cape the very first time I met Joy a year or so ago at Helpers.
Check out Joy in the background! Her style is flawless.
I also had an amazing time catching up with fellow bloggers Angela, from Auvê Daily and Ryan aka The Little King on instagram. After 4 or 5 glasses of white wine everyone was ready to pose in front of Joy’s house! But, hey isn’t that what bloggers do?
What I Wore:
Top: Chanel via Poshmark. Love these two options from The Real Real here + here.
Tank: Groceries via Les Mechantes, Swing Tank
Jeans: Gap, 1969 Destructed Authentic Boyfriend Jeans
Shoes: Christian Louboutin, ‘Petit Rat 100′ Pumps (old). Need these.
Sunglasses: Prada, Round Baroque Sunglasses
Rings: Alexis Bittar + Tiffany & Co
Shop a good chunk of Joy’s collection here on 1st Dibs!
Tell me about it, stud.
Last night I accidently walked out of the house dressed like Sandy from the movie Grease.
What I Wore:
Top: Banana Republic, Draped Lace Top
Pants: American Apparel, Shiny Legging. Love this option from Topshop here.
Shoes: Valentino, Tango Pump
Necklace: Kamryn Dame via Les Méchantes (sold out)
Shop life has proven to be very fun + smooth sailing so far. Because of this I decided to venture out to the mission once we closed our doors at 6 pm last night. The team at Everlane hosted an open studio event and I was very curious to check out their space!
Now, their space did not disappoint. I am pretty sure that everyone who walked in immediately wanted to work/live there + I am pretty sure every attractive person in San Francisco was in attendance. This event was also packed! So packed that I failed to take any pictures because the thought of reaching for my camera from my purse made me very nervous!
So this was not the outfit I started the day in…I spent my entire day staring at this dress and decided that since I WAS going to an event I needed to wear something new from the shop (insert my 2nd purchase of the day). So I threw it on + headed to the mission!
What I Wore:
Dress: Caralina K via Les Méchantes (in store only).
Shoes: Shoes: Paper Fox via Shoedazzle, Sterling
Sunglasses: Celine via Saks Off 5th (c/o), Retro Flared Sunglasses. Love this option from Celine here.
