What To Wear

Fashion 0 Comments

It’s Spring in most cities, but in San Francisco there’s still a chill in the air.  We call it “Fake-out February” for a reason.  Feb was gorgeous.  This happenes every year, you’d think we’d know better by now… everyone gets excited when the sun comes out in February and starts shopping for summer dresses, lightening their hair and painting their toes.  Well, that sun is hiding behind the fog until September.  Out comes Fall wardrobe: sweaters, trench coats, black pants and dark textiles!

Maybe I’m just being dramatic because I just got back from Baja – sun surf sand and ceviche every day for 2 weeks!

Stay warm in style my San Franciscan friends..

Ah SO exciting! Today my good friend Melanie Kluger of Head of Heels was published in Style Me Pretty… and I had the pleasure of dressing up for the shoot too! From New York City, Melanie brings style, glam and class to the San Francisco wedding scene.  With the energy  and personality (and NYC accent!) like no other person I know, Melanie is one fabulous chica, my cheeks actually hurt from laughing so much when we’re together!

Beautiful flower arrangements were created by Daisy Rose Floral.  Behind the lense was talented Krista Marie Photography.  Check out the FULL article.



HairDo for an I Do Night

Side Braid and Bun for a Wedding

Last night was a very special night.  One of my best friends, Kaity, got hitched!
I’m so fortunate to have a really tight group of girlfriends.   There’s actually about 15 of us chicas who make up our special group, and to add to the special-ness we have all known each other since elementary school or middle school!
Anyway, Kaity is the first one of us to get married, making this all the more special and memorable.

This is so simple that even I can do it.  I am not very girly when it comes to hair and makeup and actually kind of clueless.  My mom taught me many things, but how to french braid was not one of them.  If you know how to braid, this will probably be easy for you, if not, just do what I did and make it look messy on purpose.  Think Anthropologie BHLDN

How to get the look:
Part your hair on the side
Pull forward a section of hair you want to braid
Clip back the rest of your hair to keep out of the way
Begin braiding the front section, adding in more pieces and you go
Secure the end behind your ear with a bobby pin
Make a side pony tale
Secure a messy bun with little clips like these shown below
Attack with hairspray
