Just arrived home from a crazy Vegas vacation late Saturday and spent all day Sunday recovering. Jason had to drag my lazy ass out of bed, the only way this happened was by tempting me with a movie and pho from Kevin’s Noodle House.
I definitely needed a no fuss ensemble and this new cardi I got at the recent LF sale is perfect for those casual days. As of late this uber light weight chambray shirt has been my go to uniform. Found this bad boy in the trendy “mom” department at Nordstrom. Don’t you love finding those unexpected pieces?

Funny story about this skirt..it was a a last minute impulse purchase for a vegas trip about 6 months back. Naturally I didn’t wear but I figured I could wear it to some holiday party (it was around that time) and that didn’t happen either.
The weather has been so dreary lately so this was a the perfect opportunity to brighten up my mood. Of course got some pretty weird looks when strolling through Hayes Valley after grabbing lunch at Frjtz. Since I was in the area I couldn’t pass up a soy latte from La Boulange.
Happy hump hopefully everyones was better than mine.

While I appreciate the craftsmanship of many handbags I am not just a handbag girl at heart. Much rather spend my money on shoes, jewelry, etc. One reason being that when it comes to my basic staple items (ie: black flats, white button up, watch) I am so freaking picky. For example, my favorite pair of perfect black flats had to be ditched due to the fact that I wore them to shreds…literally shreds, we parted ways in 2009 and I still don’t have a pair of black flats. If it is going to be a basic then for me at least it has to be “basic”, no funky fabric, silhouettes, or bedazzles. Which leads me to the fact that I never find handbags that fit the part, after all I can’t afford anything Chanel, Celine, or Hermes. However, the tides may have turned. Coach came out with an updated version of the Willis bag. Prior to this logo craze that will hopefully die soon, Coach made amazing leather bags. To me it is perfect in every sense.. the size, straps, hardware, leather, EVERYTHING.
Possibly my next purchase?
Yesterday was one of those amazing days that makes any San Franciscan realize why they love this city..the sun was shinning, it was above 60 degrees, no wind, and everyone was in such great spirits, including myself.
My morning started off perfectly with a trip to Trouble Coffee, it is quickly becoming my Sunday ritual. If you have an addiction to caffeine you have to make the trek to the outer sunset for this quirky joint. My co-worker who shares a similar addiction to strong coffee told me about it and after I went the first time I couldn’t believe I had been living in the sunset all this time and didnt know about it. Spent the rest of the day drinking, reading, and hanging out with friends in Alamo Square.
One of the only downfalls to the chilly weather in SF is that my summer wardrobe has whittled down to almost nothing. It is a rarity that I am seeking out spring/summer pieces (chunky cardis always in the forefront ) but there are the few occasions when I purchase something (ie my shirt) in hopes that it will one day make an appearance. This shirt has been sitting in my closet collecting dust for almost a year and it probably wont come out for another.
Lastly, my little bag above is a purchase from my recent trip to New York. Its the closest I will ever get to a Balenciaga motorcycle bag but I don’t mind since mine fits a six pack, magazines, and my camera perfectly. Treasure & Bond just got a huge shipment in the morning I stopped by and I couldn’t resist taking one back with me.
Sometimes I dread mondays already waiting for Friday to come.

Story of my life, the one week day I have off it it rainy and shitty weather but in the end it turned out to be the perfect relaxing day. One of my two obsessions that occupied my day yesterday was this oversized sweater dress piece from Aritzia. It is perfect in so many ways, from the fabric to the shape, its everything you could ask for and more. It was an impulse purchase prior to my trip to NY and it is already becoming one of my go to pieces. This will be one I wear to shreds for sure. You’ll hear me say it until your ears bleed that I LOVE that store, if you haven’t made a visit your missing out.
Since it was raining yesterday what else to do than catch up on some movies you’ve have been dieing to watch. I have been patiently waiting to watch the documentary film, Bill Cunningham New York, and I finally got the chance to watch it. Beyond obsessed with the film. For the entire 90 minutes I don’t think I stopped smiling, it was so inspiring. I have been a fan of Bill Cunningham for some time (the original sartorialist in my words) and everything about him is truly fascinating. That is the beauty of documentary films, you get to see a completely other side of someones life. Any self respected fashionista needs to check it out.
I haven done enough rambling for the night. Hope everyone is starting their weekend off right.
