Loving This Week: Block Heel Pumps + a Cape Sweater

Club Monaco Blouse - Massimo Dutti Sweater - 6397 Jeans - Marc Fisher Pumps - The Great Maxi Dress

It may be the first day of spring, but it’s raining here in the Bay Area. This meteorological turn of events is making it very hard for me to seriously consider warm-weather styles. So, this week I present a mish-mash of a couple spring looks and a couple items that will still work for cooler days.

Take a look at all of my favorite shopping picks for this week…

1. Club Monaco Tatelyn Tie Top, $119.50
Architectural white blouses are all the rage right now. This poly blend version with a single front tie feels more wearable than most.

Loving This Week: NARS Highlighter + a Versatile Jumpsuit

Club Monaco Sweater - Massimo Dutti Sandals - Uniqlo U Sweater - NARS Highlighter - GOOP Label Jumpsuit

Cashmere that’s classic, but not boring, and an investment jumpsuit that is miraculously machine washable top my list of online shopping picks this week. Check out all of the new finds that turned my head below…

1. Club Monaco Riel Lace-Up Cashmere Sweater, $329.00
Cashmere sweaters are a closet staple. But, after a while, they all start to look the same. This grey cashmere sweater with grommeted lace-up detail has a fresh look, but without sacrificing the classic luxury vibe that makes cashmere a worthy investment.

Loving This Week: Rose Gold Leather Boots + Travel Fitness

Alexander Wang Boots - American Giant Leggings - Madewell Top - REISS Sweater - Flight 001 Fitness Kit

Spring is right around the corner. The best part: swingy, off-shoulder tops like the Madewell option featured this week. The worst part: only a couple more months to wear these gorgeous Alexander Wang boots. What’s a girl to do?

Take a look at all of my favorite online shopping finds this week…

1. Alexander Wang Gabi Boot w/ Rosegold, $675.00
Black leather and rose gold is pretty much the chicest combination ever already. But, in the context of these lambskin boots from Alexander Wang, the duo gets elevated. It’s kind of hard to top the cool factor of ankle boots with a cut out heel covered in a rose gold metal plate.

Loving This Week: Nordstrom Winter Sale Finds

Diane von Furstenberg Dress - Stuart Weitzman Boots - Vince Sweater - Bobbi Brown Makeup - Vince Trousers - Marc Jacobs Handbag

There’s no sale quite like a Nordstrom sale, right? There are always great deals to be found on top notch items.

The Nordstrom Winter Sale is on now, with prices good through Sunday, February 26. There are hundreds of items on sale across all departments, but I’ve pulled a handful of my favorite finds from the contemporary section here. If you have some free time on your hands, take a spin around the entire sale section. But, I promise, these are six of the best deals in the entire sale:

1. Diane von Furstenberg Tali Popover Bodice Dress, $196.80 (was $328.00)
This simple dress has a sophisticated shape that will be perfect for the office. The two-piece look is flattering, while the funnel neck provides a modern silhouette. And you can’t beat DvF dresses for fit.

These Are the Socks to Wear with Your Cropped Pants

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 • Permalink • 

Having more or less lived my entire life in California I’ve developed a pretty strong aversion to socks. I know it sounds weird to people who live in places that have actual seasons, but, unless we’re working out, Californian women tend to go sockless.

Pumps, flats, brogues, booties, sneakers…all worn sans socks in sunny California. This presents quite a bit of confusion when we are forced to travel to cold climates. I remember the first time I visited my day job’s Minneapolis office in winter. How do women wear dress shoes when it’s seventeen below?

Fast forward a few years. Socks have moved beyond chilly-weather utilitarian wear and into the fashion mainstream. It’s cool to wear socks again, especially when paired with unconventional pieces like open-toe sandals and cropped jeans. I’m so loving this look.

But, what kind of socks do you wear with cropped pants? This is not the time or place for your gym-tastic Hanes ankle socks. I’ve done a bit of research and found three distinct frontrunners for the title of best socks to pair with cropped pants.

First up, classic white socks, upgraded. To get this look, it’s important to choose a sophisticated white sock, unless you enjoy looking like a second grader.
