Blake, Lola and I are back in SF after a long, glorious weekend of eating, drinking, and hanging out with family and friends. Tonight we went for a late night walk… embraced the cold weather and scoped out freshly hung Xmas lights! I feel Monday nights are a great time to celebrate, and I really can’t get enough of the city during the holidays. So festive!

Hope everyone had a happy, delicious, and relaxing Thanksgiving. Thanks to you for reading my silly little blog… I am seriously thankful – you bring me so much joy with your comments and kind words! <3

I mentioned a couple posts back that I recently filmed a little video with  DNA for the launch of the JNBY pop-up shop at The Common in SF. It was so much fun! I got to rummage through racks of really awesome clothing — check out the video below for some of my favorite winter looks.

Stop by The Common if you live in SF, or browse the F/W collection at ShopBop! Also check out JNBY’s complete Style VIP Series featuring some really great bloggers.

Thanksgiving is my favorite day of the year, so I decided to embrace my premature excitement, and throw on a festive mustard sweater! It’s totally starting to feel like the holidays around here — little, sparkly Christmas lights are going up on Union Street, and everyone seems to be walking around with a Starbucks cup in hand.  If only it snowed in San Francisco!

Tomorrow Lola and I are road tripping down to Orange County to spend the holidays with family (Blake is already there). The drive down the 5 freeway is beyond boring – thank goodness for energy drinks and books on tape! It’ll be worth it, though… there’s just no place like home. <3

Check out the little interview I did with Closetista and Style Bust below! :)

Closetista is a brand new site that offers limited-edition pieces from future seasons by designers like Geren Ford, Dallin Chase, Jesse Kamm, and Liz Law. Yep , thats right — the items they feature can be yours before they’re available to the fashion hungry masses. And in honor of the launch they are giving 10% of all sales to charity now through December 3rd! Pretty, pretty cool.

Check back regularly for designer Q&A and more blogger interviews – my gals Jennie & Christina have videos going live soon! <3

Lonely Hearts: cut out bra and brief set, cut out bodysuit

I’m really loving these kind of crazy, strappy/cut-out bras lately. They are so perfect with a sheer shirt, or something low-cut enough to show them off in all their glory.

Last week we attended the launch party for the JNBY pop-up shop at The Common. The day before this, I shot a little video with them where I got to play dress up with the cool, architectural collection. The best part was I got to take home this sassy little sweater dress – trust me, these pics do not give it justice! 

Stay tuned for the video (or click here to watch the teaser), and if you are in SF be sure to stop by The Common and check out the JNBY pop-up!

I love it when I can just grab a few random things off the floor of my closet and they somehow come together to create an outfit that works! Wore this easy little number out for lunch and wine tasting at Spuntino recently… Spuntino is my new favorite wine shop. They have affordable varietals from all over the world and you can drop in for a flight tasting (complete with an informative little presentation) any day of the week! They have amazing cheeses, gourmet snacks, etc. to boot.

Huge thanks to everyone who entered my contest with Thrifted! I had SO much fun hosting it! Congratulations to our winner – Kristen from Some Hot Dishes.

Stay tuned for more exciting giveaways to come! <3
