Flares For Fall – What am I back in high school?

Nope…I graduated well over ten years ago, but flares are back and in a BIG way. From flared bell sleeves on tops + sweaters to flared leg openings on pants + denim flares are here…and I’m not mad about it.

Now let’s take a minute to chat about the flared pants that I am wearing in this post. I have worn them a couple of times on Instagram and received quite a few questions about them because they are really fu*cking flattering. First things first, they are technically workout pants. Yep, they are from Show Me Your Mumu’s activewear collection. And their Firm Stretch fabric is nice and thick with the perfect amount of stretch. These pants are perfect for being active or they make a great travel companion. They are seriously so comfy yet still provide a put together look. These workout pants are chic enough to sport on a plane and have become a staple in my closet.

And the stunning background for these images come from classic Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. I enjoyed a lovely staycation at the Argonaut a couple of weeks ago with my girlfriends and Benji.

If you are heading to San Francisco this is the perfect location in San Francisco to stay and even better if you are traveling with your pup.

Tuesday Shoesday: Slipper Talk. Stock Up On Slippers This Season.

If you are anything like me you never really think to stock up on slippers…until the holidays roll around and your mother buys you and your sister matching pajamas and slippers. OK, well maybe that hasn’t happened in YEARS, but it took a recent staycation for me to STOP and take a moment to recognize just how fabulous they are.

Slippers are an everyday necessity for me for oh-so-many reasons. The first being that I live on the 2nd floor of my building WITH A DOG. This means that every morning I drag my tired booty out of bed and take Prince Benji out in my Scuffette Slippers. These slippers are ALWAYS next to my bed and ALWAYS saving my life!

And while I wish that I needed a pair of warm cozy slippers to stay warm in San Francisco – there is NO SIGN of Fall over here, so the Abela Flip Flops are the perfect pair of shoes to bum around the house, chase the UPS man and run from my apartment to the laundry room in style.

So my advice to you is to stock up on slippers this season…before the holiday rush and they all sell out!

I just discovered these slippers from Urban Outfitters and they are my new go-to affordable slipper. The fur may be faux, but the comfort is a REAL.

One last thing…

Before we say goodbye I had to share this extra cozy photo from my recent staycation at the Argonaut Hotel. It is a little tricky to see what it says on our sweatshirts, but they say ‘Babes Supporting Babes.’ A quick and friendly reminder from our friends over at BRUNETTE THE LABEL, that we are all on the same team and magical things can happen when Babes Support Babes.

Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo

Since her days on MTV’s reality show The Hills (as the evil socialite working with Lauren Conrad at Teen Vogue), Olivia Palermo has always been fascinating to me. Her impeccably styled outfits and sassy attitude kept me locked on MTV and secretly had me wishing I could be her…

Fast forward to this past September when I had the honor of attending the Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo Fall 2017 Presentation at New York Fashion Week. A couple of highlights from the presentation were:

1. The fact that it was a see now, buy now presentation – meaning that THIS stunning topcoat came home with me THE DAY OF THE PRESENTATION. How cool is that?

2. Olivia Palermo was there. Yep, she was standing directly in front of me AND everything about her is perfect. Perfect style, perfect husband, and perfect dog.

It has been over 10 years since The Hills and I officially still want to be her.
