Rocker Chic

Wardrobe Essential: a leather jacket.  I didn't have one for a long time and now that I finally do, I know what I've been missing: it's the perfect go to jacket.  Since mine is black it matches with everything and it has style!  So I chose to showcase my DOMA leather jacket with my Helmut Lang cutout skirt (see brunch post for more on this skirt), a white Reiss top, and of course my black stilettos.  I love this outfit because it's where edgy meets classy.  Also, this skirt is very versatile and has already become one of my favorite pieces.

It’s Never too Early for White Pants

I understand that many people live by the rule: no white pants before memorial day and after labor day:  meaning summer is the only appropriate time to wear them.  Well I think that rule is rubbish, as the Brits would say, and I'm here to prove it!  It's never too early or late to get a great pair of white pants for anytime of the year.  I recently found a great fitting pair of AG (Adriano Goldschmied) white pants that were the perfect pick for this year.  My previous pair by J Brand had to be retired (they will be missed) but this new pair is not disappointing.  I love a cropped skinny pant so I chose that cut for this pair.  I styled them with a loose fitting Joie sweater, in a soft…

The City by the Bay

After about three years in NYC I am back in the gorgeous Bay Area and the Bay Bridge is the perfect backdrop for one of my first post!  This is California in March: sorry NYC but CA has you beat in the weather department (although I do appreciate a season change).  As much as I miss NYC and all it has to offer it is good to be home... I took advantage of this beautiful Sunday to showcase my new black stilettos, a little black dress, and a bright blue blazer.   Dress: Helmut Lang, Blazer: Drew, Shoes: Barney's Co-op, Belt: J.crew, Cuff: Cusp by Neiman Marcus Satchel: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Clutch: Dries Van Noten, Notebook: Ted Baker Photos by Mike Adelson aka Dad

Sunday Brunch in Periwinkle & Grey

Best Coffee in the Bay Area

In NYC I developed a penchant for brunch.  I think Charlie from 'Girls' gave an appropriate nod to brunch in the Girls series' finale when he snidely remarked under his breath: 'brunch.'  It's one of those activities that you want to steer clear of and go to a spin class instead but bottomless mimosas always win: always.  Since being back in CA I have brought my obsession with brunch along with me even though it's a little harder to track down here (i.e. hours are slightly limited and menus not as extensive).  But I'll find an egg, a mimosa, and a coffee on a Sunday if it's the last thing I do.  So I put on the perfect brunch outfit: a long form fitting skirt with a playful cutout, and a loose fitting collared top…
