Careful With The Crop Top

16 Apr

There’s this…

<p>And then there’s this…</p>

<p><strong><em>Please</em> take note of the difference.</strong></p>
<p>There is a fine line between an appropriate crop top and hoed-out belly shirt, but if done properly the mild bare midriff can be super chic! If you’re going for this riskier look, opt for a crop top that’s loose-fitting, and try pairing it with high-waisted, modest bottoms. Here are a few crop tops I’m coveting:</p>

CondoMiniSkirt

We were graced with some rare SF sunshine recently. In the spirit of spring I threw on my boyfriend button down and a flapper mini and set off to SOMA – the industrial neighborhood we work in – and found a hot spot that was softened with a little greenery.

This stringy skirt was such a steal, and it has been a treasured part of my wardrobe for a few years now. I am most inspired by 1920′s fashion and take every opportunity I can to channel this decade with my outfit choices…

Wearing: LF sun hat, vintage pearl necklace, Zara top & chain bag, Express flapper skirt, Juicy Couture faux fur jacket, Jeffrey Campbell clogs, David Yurman, Tiffany, & Ron Herman bracelets.

Take me to Coachella

14 Apr

Hey all you lucky ducks headed to Coachella, this post is for you! I’d love nothing more than to gather a pile of rompers & bandeau tops and skip off to the desert for the weekend. Sad to say I won’t be there this year, but for those of you who are making the trek, have a blast!

Candy locks

12 Apr

I have been seeing lots of candy colored hair lately. I love this adventurous look and think it makes for fantastic photos.

I used to sport purple streaks back when my hair was short. Don’t believe me? See for yourself! (ha ha)

Wishing I could pull off the full-blown pastel hair, but I’d be tired of it the second I ran out of outfits that didn’t clash. Ashley Olsen has the right idea with the subtle highlights, though – I think she looks so pretty!

Would you try candy colored locks?

San Francisco Vintners Market

San Francisco Vintners Market

Yesterday we went to the San Francisco Vintners Market at Fort Mason. It was a first of it’s kind, farmer’s market-style event where you could taste and buy wines from the 200+ participating wineries. Needless to say it was a delightful afternoon and we came home with a few fantastic bottles.

<p style=Dozens of tastings & a handful of purchases later I can safely say the event was a success! Sure hope they come back next year.

Headed back to Fort Mason for the San Francisco International Beer Festival (aka Beerfest) in two weeks…we just can’t stay away!

The bright side of black and white

10 Apr

It’s a gloomy Saturday – it’s cold and dark and icky outside. But we’re not about to let that stop us! We are going to the San Francisco Vintners Market (dubbed the farmers market for wine) to taste and buy. Even though the sky is gray, if this day can turn out half as lovely as these colorless photos, I think we’ll be in good shape.
