I did it! I said goodbye to my trusty everyday Stan Smith sneakers and a big HELLO to the Leather Street Shoe from Everlane. The Everlane Street Shoe serves it up in a luxurious + durable full-grain leather. The elastic at the shoe tongue allows for an easy fit + hand cut soles made from four layers of foam elevates the shoes. That little boost in the sole makes it the perfect shoe for your commute to work, work + after work.
Now I’ve had these shoes for about two months and during those two months, I’ve worn them to the airport multiple times. If you travel a lot these shoes are an absolute must! They are super simple to slide on and off (insert airport security friendly) and elevate your look just enough to make you look like you didn’t just roll out of bed…even though 90% of the time I am at the airport I just rolled out of bed and am panic jogging from security to my gate.
Snag them in EVERY color!
Snag your sneakers now. The Everlane website states that these shoes are selling fast!
So I teamed up with Farmer John to create the ultimate holiday ham..and by teamed up I mean I begged Michael of My L.A. Chef to make me a ham…because we all know that cooking is not on my resume.
So I present to you Chef Michael’s Easter Ham with an Orange Balsamic Glaze + Fresh Rosemary:
-Juice + zest of 2 Valencia Oranges (any orange will do)
-2/3 of a cup of Balsamic Vinegar
-1/8 tsp Kosher Salt
-1/8 tsp Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
-1 Fresh Sprig of Rosemary (about 2” in length)
-1 tsp sugar or honey
-Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium to medium-low heat.
-Bring to a simmer and let reduce, stirring occasionally until the mixture becomes slightly thickened and syrup like (it will thicken more as it cools).
-Once thickened, generously brush the Farmer John Ham with the glaze and cook the ham per the instructions on the package. Baste the ham with the glaze every 20 minutes until a nice caramelized crust is formed.
-Use any leftover glaze to pour over ham just before serving.
Although I didn’t really participate in the preparation of this ham – I did observe the preparation + I 100% ate it.

I think we can all agree that we need a little BREAK from the winter weather. After just a couple days in the snow and freezing rain in NYC, I know that I am California dreaming and oh-so-ready to pack up the furs and break out my spring wardrobe.
Even though we are not quite ready for spring fashion, I partnered with my local Anthropologie store in San Francisco to style some spring looks and give us a little something to look forward to. Of all the looks I styled this one is by far my favorite – I even snagged the pants on my own. The pull on styling and front slits make them the perfect pant for lounging around the house, a beach day or a casual brunch with my girls. Off-the-shoulder tops are making an appearance for spring again and I am not mad at it. No matter how much my weight fluctuates I somehow always manage to keep it off my shoulders, making off-the-shoulder tops a staple in my wardrobe.

First things first let me take a minute and disclose that YES, I do have webbed toes. In fact a couple of years ago someone called out my webbed toes on Instagram (in a not so nice way) and it motivated me to start using the hashtag #WebbedToes4Lyfe. I love my toes! They make me ME and I just happen to be a great swimmer thanks to them!
Now that we’ve got that out of the way – Let’s talk about PEARLS. Pearls are a timeless symbol of elegance, grace, and femininity: and they are really everywhere. They’re on blouses, skirts, dresses, headbands and bags, and even, actually especially, on shoes.
While the pearls are 100% faux the ladylike vibes are REAL and I am 100% committed to this trend. The slider sandal (above) gets an unexpected girlie twist with this unique pink pair from Topshop. The velvet strap and pearl beaded detailing give them a luxe finish AND I can not wait to style them this Spring and into Summer!
Are you a fan of this trend?
These Topshop slides are currently out of stock, but I did find some new options below.
