Hot child in the city

Hot child in the city

This weekend was hot. And I do not use this word lightly — in fact, I probably only describe the weather as such 3 or 4 times a year in San Francisco! It was the perfect climate for celebrating the three-day weekend outside. I did a little vintage shopping, hit the Nordstrom half-yearly sale, and hung out on our stoop with Blake, Lola, and a bottle of vino. 

I would usually be a little sad to see a long weekend come to an end, but in two days I set off to Orange County for a friend’s wedding! I cannot wait to see my family. I love going home. If only Blake and Lola were coming with me it would be the perfect little trip.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend filled with fun and happy memories! xx

I love how simple and beautiful these photos are. Colorless and natural with an Alexander Wang kind of vibe. Who ever would have thought football-style jerseys would be fashionable?

I wish I looked this good with no makeup on. Or even with makeup on, for that matter. Makes me want to take my pants off and smoke.

La Lacey Leo

27 May

I have recently found myself wanting a lace leotard. No,  not the most practical article of clothing, but I desire one nonetheless.  Whether worn under a low-cut dress, with a pair of denim shorts & a blazer, or all by itself (in the bedroom only, please) – the sheer onesie is sure to add just the right dose of sexiness to your look. Here are some of my favorite lacey leos:

I plan to do some shopping this weekend and will definitely be on the lookout for the perfect bodysuit. If my attempts fail, I will probably order the Only Hearts one from above!

Too bad if this icky SF weather keeps up I will have to bury my pretty onesie under layers and layers of sweaters, coats, and scarves. Boo!

All chalked up

25 May

I spent most of my childhood swinging the uneven bars (I was a gymnast for 11 years), so being covered head-to-toe in chalk is not new to me. However, I never thought this to be an even remotely glamorous look until laying eyes upon this editorial from Vogue China.

I have always thought ballerinas to be beautiful beings…even before the Chanel tutu (video below). They’re tall, skinny, and graceful — ultra- rhythmic fashion models, if you will. I think I’ll get tickets to The Nutcracker this year.

Bittersweet Sundays

Bittersweet Sundays

Sundays are bittersweet. Today I slept in and laid in bed for a solid amount of time before taking on the day. But what a day it was! I shopped and chillaxed at the park with LizAimee, and our clan of wild puppies. Lola, Linguini, and Charcoal really hit it off. I am confident that surrounding oneself with 100+ puppies is the key to happiness. Blake thinks I am insane.

But with Sunday comes Monday (always too soon), and with Monday comes another week of hard work. I am not complaining but I will definitely miss the laziness.

<p>I have a pair of <a title=sunglasses sort of like these, without the bi-colored lenses. I do love mine, but I think I love these much more. This picture is darling!

After a lazy day yesterday (a very lazy day) I am gearing up to head downtown and make a few returns. And you know what that means… extra $$ to shop with! Life is good. Hope the weather is nicer than yesterday.

Happy Sunday ♥

Stilts on a Stoop

20 May

Stilts on a Stoop

These are the shoes I told you about here. I decided to give them the debut they deserve and wear ’em out to ChicSocial – the Chictopia x Crossroads shopping event this week. I sipped cosmos and chitchatted with Liz of Late Afternoon and Kristine of Eli Presentacion – two lovely, talented bloggers I have befriended along the way.

I was delighted to find a great pair of high-wasted shorts & an incredible vintage Vivienne Westwood fanny pack… it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. I mean, seriously, how awesome to not have to lug around my giant purse! 

So glad it’s almost the weekend. Tomorrow Blake and I are attending a “team cook”  so that should be interesting. Blake will have to carry our team for sure. I will stand close by and provide moral support while consuming copious amounts of wine. We all have our talents, right?
