Casual Valentine’s Day Look with Coton Frais

This weekend the husband and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day early and headed down to Santa Cruz for a weekend away. We kept things pretty low key and casual and I wanted an outfit to reflect that. I chose something that would still be cute and girly enough for the weekend but casual enough for walks on the beach. I am a huge fan of athleisure wear right now so I opted for leggings and my famous black Nike Free. On...

Valentines Day OOTD feat. Pro Flowers

Today’s post comes just in time for Valentines Day. I am usually not one to get glammed up (think jeans, t-shirts and boots/wedges), but today I thought I would throw on this beautiful romper from Charlotte Russe, gorgeous earrings from Nordstrom & Stila liquid matte lipstick and Chanel Chance perfume from Sephora. The whole look was pulled together with soft waves that I pulled back into a twisted half up-do. Definitely romantic and sweet for an evening out with my hubby. Another sweet aspect...

Thankful for You + Black Friday Deals from Small Handmade Shops

As a small business owner I truly feel the importance of each sale I receive around the holidays. It is such a testament to how our country chooses to spend their money and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. By shopping small you are not only feeding a family dinner for the week, you are helping pay for bills and ultimately helping a mother stay home with her children. So thank you to everyone who has ever...

Ponchos, Pumpkin Patches + Bell Bottoms

fashion blogger fall

I can never get enough of fall. From the fashion to to the weather and everything in between. This weekend the Hubby and I took the afternoon to explore Half Moon Bay. My must have on our list for the day was to stop at a pumpkin patch (& yes I took happily too the photo opportunity that came along with it). We drove around the area, got lost and took so many amazing photos. Since the weather was nice...

Affordable Fall Fashion

If you know me you know I couldn’t be more thrilled that fall weather has finally arrived here in San Francisco, and with fall weather comes amazing fall fashion. Yesterday we finally had our first chilly/rainy day of fall and I was able to break out my favorite outfits of the season. Right now I am loving how affordable Target’s selection blanket scarves are. I picked up the one I am wearing in their dollar section for $7. They had...

Styling Sessions: The Classic Plaid Shirt

Because fall is just around the corner, and Starbucks has already dropped the first PSL of the season (hands high if you are a #basicbitch like me) you’ll know fall fashion has also arrived. As like many of you I am a huge lover of boots, scarves, plaid shirts, floppy hats and everything that encompasses fall fashion. That being said I thought I would create a series on my blog entitled “Styling Sessions”. This comes after much thought of adding a...

Jewelry Organization Redo (for under $30)

Diamonds are a girls best friends, or so they say. For me its pretty jewelry displayed and organized neatly. Since our wedding I have felt the need to organize and redo everything. First it was our bathroom (you can find our bathroom redo here) then it was my jewelry area. It was a complete disaster and because I couldn’t find anything I wanted to wear I wore no jewelry at all. Now as you can see everything is neatly displayed and...

America the Beautiful

Since 4th of July is upon us I thought I would give you all one last outfit inspiration for everyone’s favorite summer holiday. Today I am featuring a simple look that is easy to recreate with most items in your closet. I added my favorite kimono from Simply 1 Love (here) with white jeans, layered a few tanks and added a floppy hat and wedges to complete the look. Super chic and simple and perfect for that backyard bbq or watching fireworks...
