I am in love with the color of this dress. I think minty green and electric blue are my favorite colors these days — I can’t get enough. My nails were painted bright blue for about 3 months straight. So long that they were actually stained from the polish…ridiculous. I have finally decided to switch it up for a lighter shade of blue. :)

Took a little drive down south this weekend to have dinner with friends. Came across this charming trailer park and couldn’t resist snapping a few photos! I kind of have a weird thing for trailer parks.

On another note, I am excited to welcome our kick-ass new sponsor, Mint Mall! Check ‘em out for amazingly cool vintage.

You guys…I bought this jacket on a whim in New York (3+ glasses of wine in). One of those purchases where you know you want it, but then you feel guilty because you cannot afford it. BUT… then I found out the jacket is called “Laura”. Obviously meant to be.

One of my favorite things to do is combine edgier staples with girlie pieces: hence the leather/sweetie heart skirt combo. Until SF gets a little warmer (God, please!), I will be duplicating this look left and right.

OH! Have you voted for me yet? So excited that I have made it to the final round of Elle and Nokia’s Search for the Next Style Correspondent contest. I really appreciate the support! <3

The past week has been a whirlwind. But I am back in action, ready to rumble! New York was a blast. Among my handful of closet additions are these sweet ass Alexander Wang heels. AND I got them on sale (score!). Though I probably should have zipped my wallet closed after purchasing…never drink and shop. :)

And now, for the really good stuff…the winner of the Thrifted Kimono isssssss…SHANNON S. from California. Congrats, girl! Thanks SO much to everyone who entered, and stay tuned for another super awesome giveaway next month. <3

Wore this seriously pink getup to a Benefit Cosmetics event last night. I felt a little bit like Barbie, which I thoroughly enjoyed!

My favorite thing about this purse (from Calico) is that it looks like something I would have worn to death between the ages of 3 and 8. You know, during my “princess” phase. The colors and gaudy jewel embellishments make me smile.

Well, I am officially New York bound! I plan to eat, drink shop as much as possible. All while wearing as little clothing as possible. Photos from my mini adventure to come! xoxo

Mark Twain hit the nail on the head when he said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco”. The weather could not be less desirable right now. One of the many reasons I am excited to be heading to out of town this week! I am ready for some hot hot heat…bring it on NYC.

Also feeding my excitement is this new Foley + Corinna purse. Not only is it the perfect travel bag, but I am loving it for everyday wear, too. Kind of life changing after carrying around the world’s most impractical purse for months.

Have any shopping/eating/drinking recommendations in New York? I would loooove to hear them, pretty please share!! <3
