A Girls’ Weekend in Napa


Wearing super old Forever 21 dress (similar here or here), Prada sunglasses, Sam Edelman sandals

This last weekend was one for the record books. Specifically, Saturday was one of the greatest days. A few girlfriends and I had been trying to plan a day trip out of the city for quite a while. Given that the two ladies i’d be traveling with worked in the wine industry, Napa felt more than appropriate. We left San Francisco at around 9am and made our way slowly through Bouchon bakery in Yountville, Olivier in St. Helena and Farmstead for lunch, into some of the most gorgeous wineries I had ever seen.


We visited Swanson, Raymond and Chandon wineries and couldn’t help but snap a few pictures amidst the stunning vines.





I have the most beautiful friends and it makes me so happy to capture their pure joy in photos.



Cheers to many more girls’ weekends this Summer!

Guess Moto Swing Dress


GUESS moto swing dress (wearing a size 10) (on sale!), ASOS necklace, Steve Madden wedge booties

I’ve had this adorable little black dress for a couple of months, and am just getting around to sharing it with you all. It has become one of my go-to pieces for sexy nights out with friends, or saucy date-night dinners. It is quite low-cut in the front and doesn’t provide a lot of coverage in the arm/back areas, so it is definitely more evening appropriate, but I love the subtle appeal it provides. The dress itself is quite short and I have yet to wear it without some type of tight (sheer or otherwise) underneath. Here i’m wearing my trusty SPANX opaque tights and they provide the perfect amount of coverage for this short length.




Looking at these photos i’m reminded once again how much i’ve been gravitating towards black clothing. For many years I was morally opposed to wearing black. I always felt it was too dark and brooding for my outgoing personality. But as of late i’ve loved the chic simplicity it provides and have no qualms about donning an all-black ensemble.


Also, this ASOS necklace has gotten more compliments over the last few weeks than any other purchase. Definitely a must have.


Have a fantastic week!

Lululemon Wunder Under Pant


Lululemon Wunder Under pant, Steve Madden boots, Alexander McQueen bag, LOFT top (old), Zara vest (old)

Call me a fashion sinner, but i’m SO obsessed with Lululemon’s Wunder Under pant that I wore them in public and wasn’t headed to the gym… Reserve your judgement! Sometimes a girl just needs a little bit of comfort. I spend all week in fashionable, restricting pieces that on the weekend I just want stretchy pants. Sue me.

The one caveat I will make is that I always try and wear layers on top to contrast the tighter bottom. I’ve invested in quite a few tunics and longer pieces to create a little more modesty in outfits like this.


Also. Mirrored sunglasses? Hello, obsessed.


Ok, so tell me. How much of a fashion sinner am I? Have you ever worn workout pants during the day? Tell me you understand my thought process.

ASOS Swing Dress


ASOS dress, CHANEL vintage flats, Alexander McQueen bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses

I ordered this dress during ASOS’ 20% off Memorial Day sale and am so happy I did. It cost all of $25 and is the most comfortable, easily chic piece I own. I love the unexpected turtleneck coupled with the longer length but sleeveless top. It creates a sexy contrast that is just subtle enough to be appropriate for work.


I paired it with basic black accessories and a bold red lip. These Chanel flats elevated the outfit just a touch and were comfortable for all day walking.
