Sheinside coat [Similar: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5], Francescas shirt [similar], Bebe boyfriend shorts [Similar: 1, 2], Ivanka Trump heels [Similar: 1, 2], Etienne Aigner Stag Bag, Whiting and Davis chain bracelet, MAC Rebel lipstick

Enter a gorgeous bronze and deep red Stag Bag from Etienne Aigner into my closet and of course, I just can't wait to throw together yet another summer to fall friendly look. Layer a nice black coat over a printed top with some boyfriend shorts, heels/booties and boxy bag and you're good to go.

I'm on the hunt for some really great new coats, bags, sweaters, scarves, hats and boots for fall. There is no such thing as enough... STUFF!! Although I'm truly running out of hallway space to store my extra goodies. And yes I know...hallways should never be used for storage... :(

Have a great weekend folks!

A few weeks ago Hannah Suh, a Bay Area wedding and engagement photographer, contacted me about modeling (just for fun) in this super adorable tree house she found on Airbnb. I checked out her portfolio and fell in love with her work. Mike was down so we planned it out and made it happen. The owners were so kind to let us shoot there, and I was really amazed to find that you can actually rent it out and stay there overnight, like a fairy tale hotel. 

Hannah's friend, Kiana Underwood, has a flower arrangement business called Tulipina and gave us a couple of really beautiful flower crowns to use for the shoot. From the decor, to the location, the props, meeting and working with a very talented Hannah and getting some amazing shots with Mike (who really is camera shy), it truly was an enchanting experience. To top it off, after the shoot we decided to check out downtown Burlingame which quite instantly became one of my new favorite local places. It seemed to be recently renovated and everything about it was so cute, clean and just really appealing overall. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this different kind of post today!
TGIF!
XOXO

Edge of Autumn

Now I've had this awesome pair of denim for a while, thinking I had to take them to the tailor because they're A) too long (typical) and B) too wide for my skinny calves (also typical). It finally hit me like a breath of fresh air that rolling them up in addition to pairing them with a pair of heels with a mid size ankle strap might just be the free solution I hadn't realized I was looking for. And just like that, balance. 

Paired with some nice seasonal colors like navy and forest green makes a great look for autumn :) I will also add that I finally noticed the trees starting to change color. To me, glowing fall leaves are like the light before the storm.

Happy Wednesday all!
