Outwitting The Weather With Joules

Joules - Rain CollectionThe wet weather has finally hit San Francisco…

And everyone decided to update their Facebook status to announce that they would NOT be leaving the house + ordering Caviar delivery.

Well, I am here to banish those rainy day blues – KIND OF!

I teamed up with British brand Joules (again) –

To spice up our wet weather wardrobes. Who said waterproof fabrics had to be black + basic?

The eye-catching prints and colors from Joules collection can be found on their waterproof fabrics + hidden details can be found alongside functional features that make outwitting the weather easy.

The hidden details can be found on these Crockington Rainboots.

They used a textured mock croc print to make these rain boots an altogether different + exciting looking pair of boots.

And I’m into them!

Friday Forecast: Athleta Street Tights

Can I wear leggings to…

[insert] every event I attend?

I send that text to my girlfriends 99% before I leave the house.

Can I wear leggings to work? Can I wear leggings on my Tinder date? Can I wear leggings to Happy Hour?

The answer is always YES.

BUT there is a correct way to style leggings as an adult.

THANKFULLY the crew over at Athleta created a MAGICAL street tight collection.

-This post is in no way sponsored FYI-

I just happened to have wandered into the new Athleta store in San Francisco and found this collection. The street tight collection was literally made for every 30 something-year-old in the city.

High-Waisted, total support and coverage, a faux-leather front with a slight sheen, and a stretchy back to support your every move – UM… who invented these magical tights and can I just take a moment to thank them?! These street tights are the perfect fit for my lifestyle. I wear them with boots, sneakers + pumps. I dress them up for work or a date and I dress them down for running errands.

I now own two pairs of the pair of tights featured above – High Rise Gleam Tight 2.0.

And just snagged this pair the other night with ALL the zippers.

Warning: These tights are very addictive. They are like Pokemon: you gotta catch em all.

What I Ate: Tamarind Hall

Tamarind Hall - Thai Food - North Beach

Allow me to introduce you to North Beach’s newest Thai restaurant Tamarind Hall.

I love San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood almost as much as I love Benji, so when word got out that there was going to be a new spot opening in my hood I could not have been more excited.

Now, Tamarind Hall may be in the old home of King of Thai Noodle, the borderline frat house Thai restaurant that sat in the same location for almost a decade – but they’ve got nothing in common. Starting with the decor. The team at Tamarind Hall swapped out the graffiti filled walls for an understated and inviting vibe – perfect for a casual date night or after work drinks.

The chef/owner, Salisa Skinner serves up all the entertainment with a side of killer Thai street food. She spent the majority of our meal chatting with us about what inspired Tamarind Hall while encouraging us to CHUG every VERY strong cocktail on the menu. The cocktail list has a special flair for utilizing infused Thai flavors featuring exotic fruits, basil, ginger, kaffir lime and lemongrass. Once we got the cocktails following we moved on to eats.

Salisa and her team brought out almost the entire menu – some of the tables favorites included:

Sai Ua & Namprik Noom (Chiang Mai sausage), Khao Soy Gai (curry noodle soup), Thai Salmon Ceviche, and Steak Lao (USDA prime rib-eye steak marinated in cabernet sauvignon + milk).

Check out some of our favorites below:

Tamarind Hall is a North Beach must…but if you don’t feel like leaving the house hit them up on GrubHub, UberEats, Postmates or DoorDash.

[Ruti + Goorin Bros.] Street Style With Two Of My Favorite Bay Area Brands

KatWalkSF - Ruti - Goorin Bros

As a blogger, there is nothing that I enjoy more than working directly with the designers and teams behind some of my favorite brands.

For this look, I teamed up with local Bay Area brands Ruti and Goorin Bros.

I was able to work directly with the designers and key members of their teams to create a look that made me feel like a million bucks – and a look that I most likely would have never put together on my own.
