The Skirt That Puts a Spring in Your Step


  Why do we wear clothes? To protect from the elements. To show our status. To elevate our mood. Or to hide from the world. Every now and then I’ll find a piece that makes everything more fun. I wish it would be all the time, but it’s actually quite rare. Last week, upon my regular visits to The Real …

Summer Staple: The Denim Shirtdress


Since moving to San Francisco, I have become a weather wimp. Like, if it dips below 60° I’m cold. If it goes above 68° I’m hot. So basically, there is an 8° window when I’m just fine. Luckily, that’s most days here, but since moving to Potrero Hill, we get more sunny warm days than any other part of the …

Weekend in Southern California

How I Learned to Love Wearing Shorts


I used to be afraid of shorts. Maybe just now they’re coming out with the “right” length for me. Or maybe I just don’t care like I used to care on whether or not I looked good in shorts. But nowadays, there seems to be great shorts all around. Like the faux leather shorts I found at Zara, love them. …

A Nautical Inspired Outfit for the Landlubber


Even though I am a Navy brat, I’ve only been sailing once in my life. One spring break, I visited my friend in Rome, who took me sailing in Tuscany. Sounds amazing doesn’t it? Well, as soon as we left the harbor, for six hours straight I vomited. Six hours. Since then, I may ride the ferry across the San …
