A houndstooth

So a little while back, I found this dreamy dress. It’s a little Mad Men, it has a great print, and the length is perfect (I like my dresses to be long enough to wear in and out of work). Back in the 90′s, my mom used to have a few houndstooth print things in her closet. I am my mother’s daughter, I love it too. But finding good pieces in the print are hard to come by. So then, to find a coat in the same print as the dress, but slightly different color variation, is nothing short of a wardrobe miracle. The two pieces just had to be worn together right?!

I look like Sherlock Holmes’ daughter right? :) But I think I hit the jackpot with these two.

My holiday dressing, my way

I like a good opportunity dress up, just like anyone else. But I can sure appreciate and enjoy the ability to be comfortable with your friends and family, instead of fancy but uncomfortable. I was saving this dress for a special occasion just like the holidays – because honestly, it is my first foray into wearing maxi dresses, when I said I would never wear one. *and this is the most maxi I think I will get!*

When I found this special dress, I really had to make an exception. Sea NYC is a brand I’ve admired from afar for some time. But I found a great deal at my local gem, Jeremy’s. It really is a perfect holiday dress to wear between our rainy days. I hope you had a happy holiday (or if you don’t celebrate, just an awesome week :) ) I’m wrapping up some projects and posts to ring in 2015!

Romper time

When in Rome! I haven’t worn this romper in a hot minute (no pun intended). So I figured, if I can’t wear it in San Francisco, I’d have to wear it when I visited Palm Springs (posts are delayed because of Halloween posts, I promise this is the last time you see shorts here this season – but I have winterized this romper before, evident in this past post).

Hello Fall – I’ve gotten some coats and boots replaced recently, and can’t wait to introduce you to them!

Oh Palm Springs

Palm Springs ended up being one of those places I never really went to (spent one night there years ago while passing through to somewhere else) – that was until we were able to head there for a wedding. I wore my summer finest, which gave me flashbacks of living in Las Vegas during the hot summers – the heat sticks to your body and you avoid going out during the peak heat moments. But, because I’ve been deprived of this type of weather so long, I just went with it. Poolside by the day, wedding fun at night. All I could have asked for. This lady has needed a break.
