Booties On Rotation

 

Happy December 1st! This is my favorite month of the year, and I am so excited that it is cold enough to wear booties every day, sit by the fire and drink hot cocoa ūüôā These booties seem to be my four faves that never go back in the closet these days. Stay tuned later this week for my gift guide for your bestie!

Check out this awesome¬†site¬†and happy hump day! Thanks for stopping by ūüôā

Statement Pieces and Statement Pizza

So I am a girl that is all about fashion and timeless pieces, and I do not need to have the “IT” bag every season. I am very passionate about the classics that are an investment instead of a money pit. ¬†Two pieces that I have been lusting after for years are the Chanel maxi classic flap bag and the Valentino noir rock stud pump. I look at buying the real thing in the store like driving a new car off the lot: it loses value when you walk out of the store, so I prefer to consign. There are two sites that I love and guarantee authenticity for a full refund if mis-represented… I purchased my flap bag at fashionphile.com, and my rockstuds at tradesy.com and I could not be happier ūüôā For date night, I paired these statement staples with Madewell high rise coated skinnies, my “Bae Area” sweatshirt from Private Party, and my fave red lipstick, Rouge D’Armani #400.

We went out for a date night in Temescal at Pizzaiolo, a gourmet Italian kitchen that I have been hearing about since we moved to Oakland, and it did not disappoint. I started with the “Ward” cocktail:¬†rye, lemon, orange juice + housemade grenadine = YUM, then sweet water oysters with Prosecco mignonette, and for the main course, the delectable¬†Arugula, Guanciale, hot pepper + Grana pizza (with an added farm egg). We loved the ambiance, server and food, and will definitely be returning.

Happy hump day, and thanks for stopping by ūüôā

Military Jacket and Stripes

Now that it has FINALLY cooled down in California, I can bring out my fall layers.  One of my staples for this season is this military jacket (similar) that I paired with my summer striped t-shirt dress (similar).  I love being able to transition my summer favorites into fall with just a second layer.  My other go-to is my Hunter Boots, rain or shine they are a classic that I love with dresses or skinny jeans.  I hope you guys are having a great week, thanks for stopping by!

Stephanie

Teal and Red

Last year, my amazing hair guru Ash VanHousen at Taylor Monroe SF and I went on a pastel hair color adventure. ¬†We started with the coolest shade of teal, and while rocking this color, I added a red lip and realized that red and green are not only for Christmas time! ¬†Teal and green is a refreshing combo that is so fun for fall/winter style. ¬†Today was a gorgeous cloudy day in the hills (my favorite), and perfect for shooting. ¬†I paired a trapeze dress with my fave plaid blanket scarf¬†(both Forever 21), Genetic Denim¬†white skinnies, these fab Jeffrey Campbell¬†red booties and a teal bag by Balenciaga. Layering during fall is my jam, so stay tuned for more cozy and chic fall layers! ¬†Thanks for stopping by ūüôā
