FASHION, WHAT I WORE

classic cool

F21 top, Madewell Polka Dot Skirt, Vince Camuto heels, Baublebar twitter nameplate necklace, CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Spellbound

While out about about in Bernal Heights in SF yesterday, my BFF and I discovered this adorable neon limey yellow classic vintage Mini Cooper just hanging out in the street. We were instantly obsessed and in love and this photo session was born. I have always loved Minis ever since The Italian Job but this vintage one is just too cool. I can imagine Sean Connery as James Bond driving one in the late 60s, can’t you?

FASHION, WHAT I WORE

bringing it all back home

beyond vintage lace top (on sale), j brand ‘aoki’ skinny boyfriend jeans, ray ban aviators, kooba bag, old BR shoes, baublebar twitter nameplate necklace, F21 & Urban Outfitters turquoise necklaces (i love this one and this one too), various bracelets – some fun ones here, here, here and here

..

back to business as usual here on the blog…

This outfit to me just screams easy romantic bohemian in the city – a look I try to emulate often when getting dressed in the morning. Layered turquoise jewelry, white vintage lace and slouchy lived-in light denim with neutral accessories. Please note: if you are looking for the world’s most comfortable cropped jeans, look no further. Seriously, these are the softest, most perfectly slouchy jeans. I could not recommend them more! I am sure they will for sure be making some repeat appearances here.

I hope everyone’s weekend is going swell!

TRAVEL

travel diary: costa rica part 1

I just returned from my trip to Costa Rica, and we had the best time. A complete adventure from start to finish, which was right up my wanderlusting alley. Costa Rica is such a lush and beautiful country, with an exotic jungle landscape that runs right into the Pacific ocean surf. If you haven’t been there, you really need to go. We hiked to a secret waterfall, played in the ocean for days on end, read books while listening to afternoon rainfall, caught every sunset and ate delicious fresh seafood and plenty of tropical fruit. Wish I was still there….
