Dress Well: Sunday Dinners

Y'all - it was WARM this weekend. It was warm and sunny enough this past weekend to cause me to get sunburned in all kinds of weird patterns - on my wrists (???), on my shoulders, on the tip of my nose, on my knees. Being exposed to that kind of sun is so rare for us San Francisco dwellers that I almost feel like I spent the past two days on a beach vacation - I mean, there was no swimming, and no bathing suits, but....it was close enough.




DSC_5146There were multiple moments this past weekend where I stopped, looked around, and dedicated a few seconds to thinking, "does it GET any better than this?" The first time was when I was reading up on my roof on Saturday afternoon - the sun was shining, the temperature was perfect, and I had a beautiful panorama view of San Francisco. Seriously - what's better than that? The second time I had that same thought, I was running the Lyon Street steps, getting to the top, basking in the breezy 75 degree weather, and looking out over the San Francisco Bay.

When I wasn't admiring my surroundings, I was enjoying time, meals, and laughs with my husband or friends. It was truly a weekend for the record books - low-stress, high happiness, and gorgeous in every minute. How did I get so lucky?

Hopefully you had a similarly wonderful weekend. 'Til the next one...

Dress Well: Lock Me Up


Anthropologie dress, Chie Mihara wedges (on MAJOR sale!), Super old necklace, J. Crew bracelet (old), ASOS clutch, Ray-Ban sunglasses (very similar)

I wore this dress to work for the first time yesterday, and when I walked through the door I was met with a barrage of compliments from my very wonderful co-workers. Everyone loved this dress, as they should - not only is it fun and different, but it is RIDICULOUSLY comfortable. It was my outfit of choice for a recent dinner at Flour + Water because the lack of a waistband made it perfect for eating copious amounts of pasta. Seriously ladies, run don't walk to Anthropologie to pick it up - this baby's a keeper!




DSC_3084Can I get a show of hands for who's excited about the release of Season 2 of Orange is the New Black today? If you're not excited, go watch Season 1 and get back to me. My husband and I are planning on staying in tonight, cooking dinner, drinking wine, and taking in as many episodes as possible. After a long, productive, exhausting week, I'm more than ready to immerse myself for a few hours in a great show. Here's hoping it lives up to its own precedent.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dress Well: Watercolor


Anthropologie blouse, J. Crew jeans, Chie Mihara wedges (on MAJOR sale), J. Crew necklace (old), Rebecca Minkoff bag

This shirt is the second of my Anthropologie grabs from their sale a few weeks back. Like I've said before, I feel like I'm stockpiling silk shirts - they're just so perfect for work. And this one has the added benefit of being so busy that you won't be able to tell when I inevitably spill food on it.

I'm sure I'll be wearing the other two things I picked up at Anthropologie this weekend, but I can't promise that I'll be able to fit outfit photos in between all the eating, laughing, and wine-drinking me, my husband, my sister, and her fiancé will be doing this weekend. Life is rough, life is rough.








 Have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend.

Dress Well: Those Summer Nights

Confession: I am a HUGE Grease fan. You know, in case you were wondering about the title of this post.

You guys - summer has arrived! It got up to 90 degrees in San Francisco today - if that isn't summer what is? Of course, I could barely sleep last night because it was so warm (we don't do air conditioning in this neck of the woods) but overall I would say that it was worth it, if for nothing else than to get to experience the all-too-rare feeling of walking outside and having my first thought NOT be "man, I could really use a jacket."

The unseasonably warm weather gave me a great reason to pull this old-but-good blouse out of my closet. Also, didn't I tell you I was going to be living in these wedges?




From the files of "bizarre things that make me smile": yesterday was definitely an interesting day for driving. On my way home from work, I pulled onto the freeway next to a guy who was playing a trumpet...while driving. Like, left hand on the steering wheel, right hand on the trumpet. It was wild. What was even better, though, was the electronic traffic sign I saw on my way into work. I thought it was notifying me of a wreck, but no - it said, "TURN BACK. GODZILLA ATTACK." To whoever programmed that sign - I request the highest of fives.

Rounding out what is already a great week - I got the items I ordered from Anthropologie over the weekend (they had a 15% off sale - I had to) last night! I'm really excited about what I snagged - can't wait to show you guys.

Have a great Wednesday.
