Friday’s Five

san francisco home office

– cleaning up my office and thinking, “ok… this room actually turned out pretty cute” –

sofa | rug c/o Summerhouse | similar desk | white fur pillow | spotted pillow | pink pillow

courtly check ice cream bowl

– the cutest mini courtly check bowls that I can’t wait to use for all kinds of things –

relish dish | ice cream bowl | sugar bowl

baublebar hoop earrings

san francisco apartment

– adding these black and white pillows to the den and loving them even more than I thought I would –

outdoor voices techsweat leggings

– a new pair of exercise leggings that make me smile – such a fun color! –

Happy Friday fab friends!  I’ve been nestled in the apartment this week and it definitely feels like fall over here in San Francisco. AKA cozy time.  Every morning I’ve been layering up to walk Bailey, coming back to the apartment to pour a hot cup of coffee and lighting a candle at my desk… I love it.  But I hear it warms up come September/October… so we’ll see!

Christian and I watched Mrs. Doubtfire this week.  I haven’t seen that movie in so many years, and we laughed so hard! Robin Williams really was on another level. The movie is filmed in San Francisco less than a mile from where we are living, so it was neat to watch with that perspective.  If you know of any other SF-based movies or TV shows worth watching (of course I know about Full House and Party of Five), I’d love to hear!

We’re planning on playing tourists again this weekend, seeing a comedy show and exploring the city.  Even though Christian is on call every weekend, we’ve never had this much time together so consistently, so it’s something I definitely don’t take for granted.

Hope y’all have a beautiful weekend! Thanks so much for reading – XO –

Cold Shoulder Button Down

I know I’m not necessarily early to this trend, but let’s talk cold shoulder tops, shall we? When I got this top, I couldn’t wait to style it. Then I put it on and pulled and tugged at it 10 different ways… I was stumped! I realized a few key things to styling the trend of the collared, slouchy, off the shoulder top that I thought I would share.  I think the finished look is chic and effortless looking… but the truth is that it takes some effort! Or I…

Button Up Lace Dress Top

Earlier this year I got really stuck on this whole dress-as-a-top situation. I was raiding my closet for ways I could put different looks together. I came up with this one that is similar and summery and this one that is a little more appropriate for the office. This button down dress is perfect dress-as-a-top material.  It has buttons halfway down and then opens into a flowy, drapey dream!  If you have any button front dresses, you can totally recreate this look at home on your own by only buttoning…

Guide to Los Angeles

One of the most frequently asked questions I get from you guys is what to do in OC + LA. I have a Guide to OC, but I lived an hour south of Los Angeles… so I never really considered myself the guru of all things LA. BUT, my brother, Patrick, and his fam have lived in LA for the past four years, and thanks to him, I have a list of recommendations for those of you looking for tips and tricks to the city! I’m also including some of…
