Rain or Shine

DSC_9091_2I just returned from a week and half long vacation to NYC and Boston.  Truth be told, I wasn’t all that excited about my chilly vacation as I was packing all my bulky winter gear.  I have been in spring, bordering on summer, mentality and fashion for a while now.  As it turns out, it rained about a third of my vacation, but it was still one of the best vacations I’ve had!  Nothing like a cobalt blue fur collar to let Mother Nature know she can’t rain on my parade! Rain or shine, I had the time of my life!

These photos were taken at my favorite hotel in Manhattan, Le Parker Meridien.  I love the lobby architecture and wrought iron details.  The bar/lounge area has such a sultry mood with gothic decor and light fixtures!  If you find yourself in Midtown Manhattan, stop by, and you won’t want to leave!

Hope you had a great weekend and happy Monday! xo

Grey Zone

DSC_1720_2Like an annual tradition, every winter I tell myself grey is the new black.  It’s probably my most beloved color.  It is genuinely a neutral color covering all colorless shades between black and white.  And because it is achromatic, or colorless, it pairs with ANY color.  That’s a beautiful thing!  However, in spite of it, I decided to wear this achromatic color as a monochromatic look.  This grey on grey with bold stripes and pinstripes ensemble looks casually chic together!  Lastly, for that effortless vibe, a grey slouchy beanie finishes off this monochromatic look.

DSC_1740_2DSC_1862_2DSC_1682_2DSC_1747_2DSC_1908_2DSC_1831_2I picked up these Zara shorts while in New York.  The black is available online right now.  I think this pinstripe version will be available online soon.  So check their site in the next couple of weeks.  It’s a great staple!

Akin to Lingerie

DSC_3902_2Considering my obsession for lace, it’s only natural I gravitate towards lingerie inspired clothing.  Especially, when adorned with none other than…LACE 😉  This dress is really not as daunting as ‘akin to lingerie’ may sound.  Plaid is a print I automatically associate with proper, conservatism, even religion.  Must be an association formulated by my Catholic school upbringing!  Thus, to me, the print offsets the risqué factor which comes along with lingerie inspired fashion and legitimizes it as a daytime dress.  When I bought this dress, I envisioned layering it over a black, thin, long-sleeve shirt paired with stockings or knee high boots.  Something very cozy and autumn-like.  However, with the San Francisco Indian summer still strongly upon us, I couldn’t fathom the thought of that many layers when doing this shoot.  The elimination process began and this is what I was left with.  I did add a casual jacket which would pair effortlessly with this look.  I will try to circle back to this dress during the colder months and show it styled for fall or winter.

Bond Girl

DSC_3211_2Following my brother’s weekend wedding, we spent the next day tying up loose ends.  Here, you see me behind the wheel of my brother’s Aston Martin Vantage which naturally reminds me of 007.  It’s the elegant and iconic James Bond vehicle!  I’m having fun channeling the Bond girl within me wearing a slightly sexy and comfortable dress which would allow me to perform my special agent duties.  Fashion is fantasy! 😉

DSC_3229_2This is the second time I’ve styled these booties with knee high socks.  (Previously styled here!)  It’s such a great way to wear booties as it’s not only chic, it’s also comfortable and warm.
