Being all of 5’4 and a bit petite, I usually write-off jumpsuits and maxi dresses completely for fear of swimming in layers of fabric. But, as with anything, finding the right fit for your body type is key.
I found this incredible jumpsuit on a day shopping around San Francisco with my mom while she was in town visiting. We had been popping in and out of some of my favorite boutiques in the city (will do a post on these soon!), and I was striking out while she was hitting it out of the park finding some stunning pieces (think white summer silk capelets!). I had all but given up when I stumbled upon this jumpsuit and the fit was nearly perfect. With the addition of a structured belt to give some shape, and a tapered heel (my trick to not tripping over the wide legs), the jumpsuit has now become a staple.
While this is an ideal outfit for a big event or a night out, sometimes a fresh haircut is all the inspiration you need to get a little bit more dressed up for a beautiful day exploring around San Francisco!

Like many women, I have a love/hate relationship with swimsuit season. Finding the right swimsuit for your body is one of the hardest (shopping ;)) decisions a woman has to make – I don’t care who you are!
As women, most of us inherently have our own insecurities that can make swimsuit shopping painful. But, NEWS ALERT, the funny thing about our insecurities is that we’re really the only person who cares about them. Only we as individuals will stand in front of the mirror for hours and notice the one thing we feel is wrong that is completely and totally unremarkable to anyone else. We waste so much time picking and prodding on these little things, that could be better spent enjoying a nice glass of Summer Water out by the beach.
While it may sound silly/cliche, you never know how many Summers you will get in life, so you might as well make the most of each day and look cute while doing it of course! Here are some of my absolute favorite suits to do just that.
p.s. I have been obsessed with number 4 for the whole Summer now. I love the criss cross straps in the back and I’m CONVINCED that it must do wonders for your butt!
I’ll be honest, this past year it has been incredibly hard for me to keep up with this blog. With the move to San Francisco and so many life changes on the personal and professional front, I have let this passion, that means so much to me, fall to the wayside. But there are no excuses. While blogging about fashion may seem silly to many, it is one of the things that brings me the most joy in life. Ever since I was a little girl I have been obsessed with fashion. Watching my mom (a former model) get glammed up in the most incredible outfits, I became fascinated with the details of the clothes and the feelings a certain look would evoke. As someone who excelled in math and sciences, I have always been convinced that I was a strictly left-brained non-creative type, unlike the rest of my family. As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned that one cannot effectively be successful in one area if they do not have balance in others. You cannot live a successful life within the confines of a spreadsheet, if you don’t wildly color outside of the lines in other aspects of life.
Now, it has become evident that fashion is my creative outlet, it is my art.
