While searching through some files on my computer, I ran into these shots from a month or so ago that I never got around to posting. Outside my old office building, where me and Heather used to take our outfit pics. Ahhhh, it’s my old life! In a total San Francisco outfit. The no tights in November and sunnies give it away…. It is hard not to feel nostalgic, but I have to say, I am kind of in a mini early stage love affair phase with my new life. I love my new job tons and have a new-found rejuvenation for getting out of bed in the morning. It was getting to be a struggle back there. I am thinking about experimenting with some new hairstyles and makeup outside of my standard go-to look (!!). I can’t wait to get reunited with my entire wardrobe (which is making its way across the country in a moving truck, very slowly…) to start remixing in new and creative ways. Being pulled away from your old habits makes you start to really think about mixing it all up, just to see where you might land in the end.
I do love this C&C California leather inserted sweater dress, though, and I think I’ll be wearing it a lot outside of California. Maybe with some tights…
An oversized sweater, leggings and distressed motorcycle boots? sounds like cozy winter dressing at it’s best. I practically lived in this outfit this past weekend while home in Seattle for Thanksgiving. Winter seems to be truly upon us. Isn’t the Northwest afternoon light the prettiest?

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a ‘Tastemaker Brunch’ here in San Francisco hosted by the lovely & talented Sarah Seven in honor of the debut of her Fall 2013 Ready to Wear and Bridal lines. It was the most adorable and girly glam set-up in the tented and heat-lamped backyard of Sarah’s showroom, complete with a singer-songwriter serenading us. Along with 20 or so other bloggers and tastemakers, I brunched on quiche and scones and fun pink drinks and watched an up close and personal showing of Sarah’s latest magical creations. I really couldn’t have asked for a better Sunday. As an ode to Sarah’s aesthetic I wore my favorite metallic maxi skirt and my beloved jeweled headpiece.
If you haven’t heard of Sarah Seven and her designs, you must check her out. They are so girly and glamorous, yet sophistocated and free-spirited. I especially love her all over sequined numbers – truly exquisite in real life. And the magic she does with sweetheart bodices…. I actually first met Sarah while at a bridal fitting with one of my best friends this past summer, so it was so fun to come back and see her latest collection. She has the kind of unconventional and whimsical Bridal aesthetic that I could see myself going for one day.
I hope everyone had fab weekends. I can’t believe it will be Thanksgiving in a few short days. I am lucky to be headed home tomorrow night to be with my family for 6 days, yay! xx
a little burgundy, my fav killer new frye black booties and some fine and chunky gauge knits. a perfect November cozy outfit xx.
I know it’s technically all about Oxblood these days, but I am having fun with the whole range of burgundys and cranberrys. They make my hot pink feel fresh and seasonally appropriate. x
After a whirlwind and honestly, tough, couple of weeks here in wondergirl life, things are finally starting to really look up. good thing everything really is cyclical right? it all comes back around.
I couldn’t really say no to this long sleeved Madewell floral number, as I pretty much try to take any opportunity to blend my free spirited Seattle girl roots/fantasy bohemian life with my actual 9 to 5 city working girl reality. This dress just fit the bill so nicely and proved to be excellent retail therapy. TGIF loves! Thanks, as always, for visiting xx
