Last Sunday started with one of those perfectly still mornings. The streets were clear (a rarity here), the wind was only a slight breeze, and the weather cool, but bearable. Andrew and I took a drive through Pacific Heights and it seemed like all the flowers had sprung overnight. A promising sign after years in drought!

We got out and walked through the neighborhood admiring the impressive homes. Also, I’d be lying if I didn’t mention I was trying to get my Fitbit steps up on a usually sedentary Sunday. Taking these walks through Pac Heights is something we love to do. Each time I’m amazed at intricate design of each of the homes, it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Even more beautiful are the flowers that bloom across the trellises adorning many of the homes. The outside of the homes are literally covered in these flowers!

This Ted Baker skirt was made just for days like these. This season, I love pairing textured tops with a floral bottoms to add a bit of dimension to the look. If you have a statement jacket, layer it to enhance the look even more. This green coat is one of my favorites because it evokes a classic Kate Middleton feel. With many jackets going on sale now, check out a few other options here, here, and here.

This Spring I’m challenging myself to cut back on all of the black and mix more light neutrals into my wardrobe. My go to neutrals are light pink and leopard – these never go out of style! If I’m running errands around town, I’m all about these jeans that I’ve taken the hem out of (no need to pay for the new jeans without the hem) or these white jeans and my leopard flats.

Happy Easter!

Never one to shy away from overdressing, I do love the prospect of finding just that perfect outfit each morning that says “Hey, I *think* I’ve got this whole ‘life’ thing figured out” – like this or this one. But, there is always that secret stash of expertly ripped jeans in the back of my closet that are reserved for either moving, painting, or Saturdays. Paired with the staple, can’t-live-without-it white tee, the look is as classic as time. But who are we kidding, is fashion really about the convenience of classic looks? Break away from the norm. Fluff it up. Throw caution to the wind and top it off with Summer’s version of Kim K’s Teddy Bear coat – the Fluffy cardigan.

Shopping on Geary Street

With as busy as life gets some times, its easy to take for granted the simple pleasures. Thanks to Instagram I’ve chronicled some of my most memorable moments of life lately. 
A perfect San Francisco afternoon
Enjoying much needed time with family at the marina

Sunday Best: Spring Fever

This past Wednesday officially marked the start of my favorite season, Spring. The weather gets warmer, March Madness ensues, flowers are blooming, that better half of our wardrobe sees some action, baseball begins, music festivals are everywhere, many cities start hosting “First Friday” events, and you basically just WANT to be outside doing something. So, in celebration of this delightful season, here are some of my favorite picks for Spring.


When the weather is nice out, I love opening up the windows and lighting candles. By the end of the day, the whole house smells fresh and airy. Capri Blue’s “Sheer Peony” candle is the perfect scent for Spring and has a burn time of at least 85 hours! $29.95
Between work, sporting events, outdoor activities, beach days, nights out with friends, my phone’s battery typically lasts me until at least 10:30a.m. (from the time I leave the house at 7:30a.m.). So, a portable charger is a MUST. This You’re in Charge iPhone Battery Pack in “Blossoms” by ModCloth helps your iPhone keep up with your busy lifestyle no matter where you are. $34.99

The mild temperatures of Spring have many of us pounding the pavement or hitting the trails for our fitness fix. Whether you’re preparing for a marathon event, walking the dog, or simply getting in a good run, these Nike Free 5.0+ iD running shoes will having you doing so in style. Even better, they’re super light-weight! I customized mine in the colors of my favorite NBA Basketball team, the Oklahoma City Thunder (my #1 team no matter the distance), and my workout motivation tag, “Go Harder.” $135

The timeless Saint-Louis Goyard tote is a classic fashion staple. Not only is this coveted bag customizable, but its versatile shape makes it a great carry-all for all of your Spring essentials. These exclusive bags can ONLY be purchased in person at a Maison Goyard store (of which there are only 5 in the U.S.) or at certain Barney’s locations. $1,615

The simplicity of the Spring season calls for no-fuss, long-lasting makeup. The Satin Lip Pencil by NARS ensures a flawless application to swipe on for an all-over color while you’re on the go. They also come in an array of resplendent colors to perk up your pucker. I’m loving “Jardin de Plantes.” $25
