the new look: pink, pink, pink.






recently i've been all about coordinating colors...love how this top i've had in my closet forever (coincidentally from forever 21) matched this skirt perfectly.

hope you're having a good week...

editorial focus: into the woods.










came across this editorial over the weekend, and i loved how modern yet undone it felt. the pieces chosen by street style star christine centenera have a subtle sophistication in a palette of white, cream, black, navy, and light blue and the beauty look of full brows, luminous skin, and slightly wet hair is a nice juxtaposition.

shop the looks below...

the new look: spring stripes.






zappos has long been a source for me to find great footwear (with choices from zappos and the more luxurious couture shop), but more recently, i've discovered some of my favorite clothing lines, like seven for all mankind, velvet, rebecca taylor, and parker are part of the zappos coveted boutique. you can shop by lookbook, buyers' picks, outfit, or trend, and of course find fab accessories to make your look unique. i fell in love with this striped trina turk dress and its flirty dropped waist, perfect with flats for work or sandals for a day for an afternoon of brunch and shopping.

stay tuned for another zappos coveted look for a night out...

the new look: tuxedo and cargos.





there are days that i love pairing two things that really have no business in the same look, and this was one of those days. i love these pants...LOVE. another j.crew purchase from around 2009-2010 (yay for the marissa webb years and another big YAY for her appointment as creative director of banana republic!) that have stood the test of time. so on this particular morning instead of reaching for a grey sweatshirt or plaid shirt, i pulled out this black silk tuxedo blouse (super soft on the skin because the shiny part is on the inside), coincidentally from banana republic. the old and the new coming together.

banana republic shirt (similar, also comes in white), j. crew pants (old, similar at 25% off with code inthefamily14), boutique 9 sandals (similar), vince camuto earrings, linda farrow x alexander wang sunglasses, zara bag, club monaco belt, monserat de lucca (similar), céline, and jewelmint bracelets

currently coveting: spring jewelry.



i left two things off of my spring shopping list, probably for two reasons: first, i've already bought them and secondly because they've become such a part of my daily wardrobe.

the first is the céline knot bracelet i picked up in february. i had long admired céline's jewelry, but the stores in sf (neiman marcus, saks, and barneys) only carried one size in the bracelets. so when i was in new york, i popped in to check out the selection, and the thin knot was too beautiful to resist. even though it's an open design, getting a small ensures that it won't slip off my wrist (there's enough of an opening to get it off and on).

my other purchase happened because of new york as well. i had lunch with sarah and she was raving about her mise en dior earrings. then the same day i went to céline, i stopped into the dior flagship and saw the pearl and colored versions. while i loved the design, i wasn't crazy about the colors or the pearls, so i passed. but back in san francisco, after taking a peek into the dior shop within bloomingales, the salesperson casually mentioned the metal versions were soon coming in. oh, you don't say? "i can give you a call when they arrive." well why not? i went for the smaller silver/larger gold combo, which looked better against my skintone, and they've become my alternate to the diamond stud—still tasteful but a little more interesting.

céline bracelets, available at neiman marcus, barneys, saks fifth avenue in san francisco, or céline in los angeles and new york
dior "mise en dior" earrings available at the dior boutique inside bloomingdales in san francisco
