Loving This Week: Black and White Office Basics

Madewell Pants - Massimo Dutti Dress - Aella Pants - Barneys New York Shoes - Zara Shirt

Over the past few weeks I’ve slowly collected some great workwear finds. I finally reached critical mass for a post, so it’s time to share.

I didn’t plan it this way, but all of my picks are black and white. I can’t help it. I love black and white for the office. That doesn’t mean that these picks are boring, though. I found really interesting shapes, textures, and cuts, all at affordable prices.

Check out all of my shopping picks this week…

1. Madewell Stockton Culotte Pants, $79.99 (was $108.00)
Swingy, wide-leg cropped pants have become a modern office staple, along the lines of the ubiquitous black trouser. Can you really ever have too many pair? This not-too-precious Madwell version is priced right and has a flattering higher waist.

Loving This Week: Modern Pumps + Travel Beauty

Issa Dress - J Brand Jeans - Aesop Toiletries - M.Gemi Shoes - COS Top

I’ve been wading through the San Francisco Symphony season ticket options for the upcoming 2016-17 season this week. So many options, so many fun nights ahead. This time of year always gets me in the mood for a new night out dress, and I found a great deal on one from Issa.

Also on my shopping radar this week, travel beauty goodies and a pair of modern pumps that will look great with just about everything.

Check out all of my favorite shopping picks this week…

1. Issa Veda Silk Crepe de Chine and Georgette Dress, $478.00 (was $1,195.00)

The arts scene in San Francisco is, for the most part, a low-key affair. With the exception of a handful of galas and cocktail parties, you can pretty much get away with wearing your “Sunday” jeans everywhere. But, that doesn’t stop me from craving a new going out dress the minute the new Symphony season calendar comes out. This one strikes the perfect balance between chic and not-too-dressy. Plus, that sale price.

Loving This Week: Classic Swimsuit + Gucci Logo Cross-Body

Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer - Helmut Lang Tee Shirt - Citizens of Humanity Pants - Base Range Swimsuit - Gucci Handbag

Everything old is new again this week, from early ‘90s dropped crotch pants to early ‘00s Gucci logo-wear. How is it that these fashion flashbacks are feeling suddenly fresh and new?

Speaking of fresh, the beauty glossies and blogs are all saying great things about the natural glow attainable with Charlotte Tilbury’s highlighter/ bronzer compact. I’m ready to bite.

Check out all of my favorite online shopping finds this week…

1. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight, $68.00
Beauty editors all over the internet have been raving about this bronzer + highlighter duo. But, it was a Byrdie post detailing Olivia Culpo’s everyday makeup routine that sold me. She described using the bronzer portion as a soft eyeshadow, and snapped a pic of her well-worn palette as proof of her wear-everywhere devotion. I’d try anything to recreate her fresh-faced Byrdie glow.

Loving This Week: Work Travel Trousers + a New MAC Palette

Everlane Trousers - Wilfred Blouse - See by Chloe Flats - MAC Eyeshadow - Citizens of Humanity Jeans

The worst part of work travel has got to be looking put together, while still feeling comfortable, on the plane. These new wool trousers from Everlane may be the answer. At the very least, they are getting rave reviews and they are super affordable

In other shopping news, a Pinterest fashion find and a brand new eyeshadow palette from MAC that is full of super wearable shades. Check out all of my top online shopping picks for the week…

1. Everlane GoWeave Crop Trouser, $115.00
These 100% wool pants are from the new GoWeave line at luxe ethical retailer Everlane. This line is based around a wool twill fabric that is smooth and wrinkle-resistant. It’s pretty much made for work travel, and has been getting amazing positive reviews. A definite must-buy.

Under $100: Sunglasses by The Row, Ray-Ban, Chloe, and More!

Spring has sprung. The days are getting longer, and there's a whole lot more sunshine to go around. It's definitely time for a new pair of sunglasses.

Want to snag a pair of high end designer sunglasses for an absurdly low sale price? I'm giving the "Under $100" treatment to sunglasses from high-end contemporary labels. I found sale options from some super desirable brands like The Row, Stella McCartney, Derek Lam, and Saint Laurent. Personally, I'm leaning towards the 3.1 Phillip Lim pair -- so striking!
