About a week ago I was so lucky to be able to celebrate the Chinese New Year with my sister at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco. I flew in the previous night from a wild NYFW straight to a glam dinner at one of the most prestigious hotels in SF - now if that isn't #LIVINGGRAND already! They set me up in one of their most luxurious rooms with a view of nearly the whole city. In the evening my sister came over and we got ready together for the dinner party. 

They created one of the most unique experiences with splendid decorations, a totally wild dragon (there was a fortune teller and harp player as well), and truly scrumptious food. I wore a Keepsake the Label dress from DailyLook which you can get here. I met some wonderful people and wish I could go back and live through it all again and again. You can also see a short video recapturing some of the night here!

If you are looking for a hotel to stay at or to host your event (they are right next to Union Square too!), I can assure you the Grand Hyatt SF knows how to do it right. 

Have a great weekend ladies and gents!

silver pumps
Express Suit Jacket, Cami, Lace Skirt, Emporio Armani Sunglasses, Similar Clutch, Fossil Watch [Similar Michael Kors], ShoeDazzle Heels [Similar Jimmy Choo]

Express is my go-to whenever I’m in need of tailored, on trend and affordable office wear. What I love most about these pieces is how when combined they are adorably yet indisputably work appropriate. And yet once separated they can each make a jaw dropping ensemble on their own! My pink lace pencil skirt is perfect for spring and my suit jacket will also look amazing with jeans. My instinct these days is to go with gold accents but I think the silver was a perfect touch.

I’m excited to let you guys know that I’ll be hosting an Express Spring Fling event on March 3rd at their store in Union Square! It will be an exciting opportunity to hang out with Kate Upton and other SF bloggers plus shop their new spring collection all the while enjoying great music and hor d'oeuvres.

One lucky person will win a shopping spree with Kate Upton and a select group of Express customers on 3/3/15 between 7:15pm – 8:00 pm PST at the EXPRESS Union Square, San Francisco store.

Boyfriend Jeans

Old Navy Button Down, Tank, Denim, BCBG Blazer, Steve Madden Heels, Prada Bag, Peggy Li Necklace, Daniel Wellington Watch

Styling boyfriend jeans for the first time was a fun challenge. I typically like to go for really tailored pieces and the whole idea of boyfriend jeans is casual... messy... fun. I decided to just go with my gut and offset the "messiness" with a super structured blazer and accessories. I did pair the denim with a button down blouse to keep the look a bit more masculine. When it gets warmer I'll be pairing my boyfriend denim with crop tops and flip flops. They are the perfect kind of jeans to throw on if you just want to look effortless. My suggestion is to always compensate and wear something tailored, cropped or super feminine like strappy stilettos.

Monochrome

new york fashion week
old navy coat English Rose Blouse [similar], Sheinside Red Pants, Peggy Li Necklace, Schutz Heels, Aldo Clutch and Ring

Monochrome outfits are an easy way to look more wealthy, polished and mature. Of course fit is extremely important (loose yet fitted - nothing should be tight) and it is best to choose suit separates more often than not. The little details like my gorgeous necklace and the blouse caged cut outs make it more interesting. I hope you guys love this look. I tried something new and would love to hear what you think. xoxo

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Pink Kicks

I wear heels so often it is easy to forget how much I love wearing comfortable kicks too. It is also easier to have a chance adventure when you are wearing sneakers, versus trying to spontaneously run to the park in stilettos :) Especially Sperry shoes which have just the right amount of grip and are so incredibly classic. (As seen during #SperryNYFW) I dressed uber casual yesterday as I was enjoying the California sunshine and perfect temps. I love the pink color of my shoes and you can bet I'll be wearing them a lot this spring and summer. 

Have a fab Friday all!
xoxo
