Work From SF

Dress – Aritzia / Denim shirt – Madewell / Black boots – borrowed from mom years ago!

The other day we had the opportunity to work from the city instead of our office in South Bay – an opportunity I always take when I have the chance! It’s actually such a great perk from the company because we get to rent an Airbnb for the day, have breakfast and lunch and then celebrate with drinks after. We were all working pretty diligently in The Mission that day, but Alberto and I snuck out for a mini photo break to capture our latest OOTD.

Dem Pants

 

Black Sleeveless Blouse – Madewell / Pants – Urban Outfitters / Black Heels – Vince Camuto via Nordstrom

 

I used to feel a little bit nervous wearing these hot pink pants out, but happy to say nearly five years later, I’m wearing them with a lot more confidence! They’re also made of silk so that pretty much makes them the most comfortable pants ever. In so many ways, this outfit is kind of a throwback. For one. The pants. Secondly, I went through a phase in middle school where hot pink and black were my favorite colors and I only purchased items that were in these color families. I used to wear these pants maybe once a year, but I’ve busted them out more often lately and why not? I got these for $20 bucks on sale at Urban way back when!

I Got Hops

Chambray shirt – Madewell / Skirt – H&M / Scarf – Aritzia / Booties – Munro via Nordstrom

It turned out to be pretty gray today so we bundled up! This is actually kind of a drastic change from the all white outfit I wore just a couple of days ago when it was completely sunny. We decided to have a little bit more fun with this post though so Leah captured a photograph of me getting some air! Surprisingly, we only needed just 4 takes to get this! Having grown up in Seattle, I never really realized how much of a damper (pun intended) the weather can have on our overall health and wellbeing. Even though it rained just a little bit today, I found myself feeling more tired and at one point even a little sick. Turns out a few of my co-workers shared the same sentiments as well. Maybe it’s all in my head or maybe it’s just what the weather does to us all. Whatever the case, I’m really glad I got to feel like I was skipping ahead to fall today!

White and Gold

Top – Aritzia / Belt – Madewell / Skirt – Urban Outfitters / Wedges – DV by Dolce Vita

We rarely ever do OOTD posts and when we did do them, I was wearing a space helmet! RIP Space Girl and Space Street Style. I still get super self-conscious when we do photos like this these days, but it totally helps to have great co-workers who also double up as photographers! Caught: a laughing me in the wild with the new S’mores Frappuccino from Starbucks (more on that later!) I actually bought this skirt almost immediately after I came out of my SoulCycle workout on Monday night since Urban Outfitters was next door. And because I deserved it after that session! It was between this and a white lace romper, but this one is much more versatile and a perfect fit with the rest of my wardrobe. I was also hesitant to be wearing an all white outfit since I’d never done it before, but have always wanted to and a little hint of gold goes a long way.

The Closet: March 2015

Victoria’s Secret The Strappy Bandeau – $24.50

Victoria’s Secret The Cheeky – $22.50

*Sidenote. I totally already bought this. Since it was my birthday month and all, we got a little loose with the wallet. Actually I can’t even say that because I don’t even own a working wallet right now and should’ve probably made that my first purchase. Happy spring! I’m so excited to welcome new items into my life! Don’t worry – I didn’t buy ALL of these things.

Madewell’s Fall 2015 Lookbook

Madewell releases their lookbook every year around this time – just when I’m getting excited for spring! But hey – I’m never going to turn down the viewing of a lookbook especially not from one of my favorite brands. Madewell does fall very well. The colors, the layering, the accessories. It’s probably one of the few things that even gets me excited for fall! So with that, we’re excited to share what we have to look forward to after spring and then summer of course. You know me, I like to plan ahead.

Madewell Teams Up W/ Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter

When I think of Madwell, I am reminded of two things. They’re the sister store of J. Crew and they’re home to some of the most exquisite pieces of denim I’ve ever come across in my life. Full disclosure – I don’t actually own a pair of Madewell denim… yet, but I will someday! I’m saving up! I’ve tried on a couple of pairs in their stores a few times now and each time, I find that they fit like a glove and perfectly which is difficult for me as I’m 5’1 and very petite. Jeans aren’t something that come easy for me which is why I always lean towards dresses and skirts.

Earlier this week, the company announced a major collaboration! They’ll be joining forces with both Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter to sell their pieces with them similar to how there’s a Free People section within Nordstrom’s TBD. Starting February 24th, 70 of Madewell’s pieces can be found on Nordstrom.com with physical pieces being in 15 Nordstrom stores on March 6th. On February 25th, 50 Madwell items will be avaialble for purchase online at Net-A-Porter. I’m pretty excited about this news because sometimes when I want to go shopping at all, I’ll JUST go to a Nordstrom (because it’s like home) so now I don’t need to find myself walking through the mall to get to another Madwell.

Valentine’s Day Dresses For Your Perfect Evening

Happy February! Ever since I moved to California, I think I’ve loved February much more than when I lived in Seattle because unlike Seattle, February here kind of is like a little bit of a colder summer. There’s not much difference. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I usually love asking all of my couple friends what they have planned. Some get to be very elaborate while others barely celebrate the holiday  or doing something really easy by telling one another what they want and getting exactly that. I haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day that much, but if I had to pick an ideal date, it would just be dinner, dessert, and drinks! Last year, I was treated out to dinner and drinks at a nearby wine bar and that was just enough for me. It’s amazing how much pressure there can be on one holiday – gifts, plans, expectations, and lastly – what to wear! Red and pink are usual go-to’s, but I really love when people toss in blue and that’s why I’m highlighting this dress above from Urban Outfitters. Need more inspiration? Click the cut!

Proud Owner:

What person doesn’t love to start out the year with a brand new spankin’ wardrobe?! Not only was “dressing better” one of my resolutions this year, it was also just dressing smarter. I wanted to really invest in long-lasting pieces that I knew I could wear over and over again and with other pieces that I already love. That means not succumbing to trends that are going to go away in a season and making sure that when I buy a piece I really love it. Over the holidays, I went on a little splurge at one of my favorite stores – Aritzia. I already own so much from them, but for the past couple of weeks they have been having a massive sale and naturally we had to take advantage of it. In fact, I’ve already been wearing a new piece from them every day this week and I’m bummed that I didn’t get to document it – but my new clothes aren’t going anywhere so they’ll be another opportunity for this.

I kicked off this past Monday with my new Babaton Dexter Pant. I knew that this was going to be something that I was hunting for in the new year so when I went to Aritzia I picked out a couple of black pants in similar styles. This one was actually picked out for me by a woman working at the store and granted it was the most expensive pair…but it was by far, the best pair. I love the way that I feel in these. Completely comfortable and ready to do anything. The elastic waist band was exactly what I was looking for because I didn’t want to struggle with a drawstring (too casual) and buttons and a clasp (too complicated.) When I wear these pants, I can just put them on and go. I paired these with a black sleeveless Madewell blouse and my Vince Camuto heels. It was fancy, but not too fancy. We satisfied the “I, at least, look put together on a Monday” look.

The Closet: December 2014

Catbird Choupette Necklace – Rose Gold – $298

Typically I publish this list a week or so before Christmas since Kevin has said that he has used it for inspiration when shopping for presents for me in the past, but this year we just went straight to it and told each other what we wanted. This post is extremely accessory/jewelry heavy which is completely new for me, but with 2015 just around the corner, I figured – why not? I’m probably not going to get any of the things on this list, but I’m very much okay with it. Adult me needs to save $$$ anyways.

Madewell Spring 2015 Lookbook

After the storm we just went through here in the Bay, I’m ready for spring with Madewell! I guess I should clarify that the storm that they shut schools down for here in the Bay was equivalent to just a normal rainy day in Seattle. It was slightly ridiculous. Whatever the case, spring wear is always so much more fun than winter in my eyes anyways.

Black Friday Shopping Woes

Apparently, when it comes to jewelry I’m still a complete n00b. I stopped into Madewell this past Black Friday and when I spotted these rings on sale for just $10, I knew they were a steal. After putting that bottom one on (it’s a size 5 and I’m a size 4) I found myself completely stuck with my finger starting to turn white. My skin looked completely squeezed from the ring and I was panicking. I didn’t think that would happen since it was one size larger, but I later found out from my cousin that thicker rings size differently?

So I ask the salesperson for help on getting the ring off and she says, “No, I don’t want to hurt you.”

Okay, but like what are we going to do about this ring?

She suggests that the front has lotion, but they really only have Purell. That may work. When she sees that I’m trying to be careful with the Purell, she goes “I don’t care how much you get on the ring.” She probably just wanted it off or maybe she just hated me. If you think about it, I’m kind of like this bratty kid that had to try on everything at home and she was the babysitter that wanted me to not touch anything. And honestly, I didn’t think it was going to come off! Until it did, and I was so mortified about the situation that at that point I couldn’t even buy it.

Thank god for Cyber Monday, right?

Madewell Fall 2014 Catalog

I just thought about how many times I’ve posted about a Madewell catalog being out for the season and I think it has been many. Many times. I actually do love their catalogs though – more than any other retailer. There’s always a paper version mailed out and in stores and a digital version for what we use to transfer our favorite snapshots over into a post! Actually, I’m very impressed with Madewell’s digital catalog this season because instead of flipping through “fake pages” all I have to do is scroll downwards. So it doesn’t reflect a “true” catalog, but who needs that anyways? At least they’re not trying to hide that I’m viewing this catalog on a website. With that, here are our favorite fall looks. Gimme gimme.

The Sill x Madewell

I’m such a huge sucker when it comes to all things decorating my desk. I constantly feel like I have so many ideas for it, but given my role at my workplace, I sometimes feel like I am swimming in papers. Last year, I was given a succulent from my co-worker which didn’t survive. And ever since it died, I’ve been itching to have another one. The Sill is a start-up out of New York that I blogged about back in November and now they’ve gone ahead with a collaboration that is making me love them even more! Working with one of my favorite retailers, Madewell – The Sill has created an exclusive line of planters that I absolutely need to have. If only they could ship it to me…

How great would this look on my desk though? Or even… your desk!
