Studded Sandals

imageWhile everyone is getting ready for fall, it’s been warming up in the city. It’s been so nice and I even got to enjoy a beach day this past weekend!  I was excited to see that my favorite sandals were back in stock and I got to pick up the other color (I have them in black as well). These sandals are almost identical to the Valentino sandals but at a much more affordable price. They’re the closest I’ve found and I was a little bummed the first time that I bought the black ones, that they didn’t have my size in stock in the tan color. I would definitely recommend picking these up while they’re in stock if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the Valentino’s. Although summer’s almost over, they’d be great for next year. I tend to wear sandals all year though 🙂

Favorite Tee

imageT-shirts are a very important part of my wardrobe. They’re so easy and can be paired with anything. The most important thing to look for when shopping for t-shirts is the fit. I personally love a loose fitting v-neck. There are so many t-shirts in all different price ranges and I’ve had a hard time finding my perfect one. About a year ago I purchased my favorite one from Zara and when I went back to buy more colors they didn’t sell it anymore. I was so happy to see that they recently brought it back so I bought it in every color because I know I’ll get so much wear out of them. Do you have a favorite t-shirt? I’d love to know which one!

T-Shirt Dress in Alamo Square

IMG_0494Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies are some of the most iconic places in the city and a great spot to hang out on a nice sunny day.  Another thing that’s great on a sunny day is a t-shirt dress.  I absolutely adore this one because its so simple and the fit is perfect, not too tight and not too loose.  It’s a couple inches longer in the back than in the front which might be great if you’re taller.  I’m short (only 5’1) so I feel like the back is a little bit too long since its about touching the back of my knee.  Paired with my favorite Rebecca Minkoff accessories, this made for the perfect casual but cute look for a sunny day at the park.

Rose Gold Accents on the Boardwalk


This past weekend my husband and I took a little road trip to Santa Cruz to escape the city and get some sun!  I wore this outfit for an evening on the boardwalk and a casual dinner.

Ever since rose gold became super popular a few years ago, I’ve been in love!  Gold and pink together?!  I can’t get enough of it!  For this casual look I used all rose gold accessories (except my sunglasses) to make it a little more fun since my shorts and top were so basic.

I love taking this purse on trips with me where I’m going to be walking around a lot and don’t want to have to worry about carrying a big bag all day.  It looks pretty small but surprisingly, you can fit a lot of stuff into it.  Perfect for all of my essentials!  What also makes it great is that you can adjust the chain to be shorter, remove the chain to use as a clutch, or wear it crossbody.  It’s basically every bag you need in one, which is why I love taking it traveling.

Rose gold has shown up in just about everything, so it’s easy to find any accessory with this gorgeous tone!
