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.

2. J Brand Jude Mid-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans, $80.15 (was $229.00)
Speaking of sale prices. These jeans are just too good of a deal to pass up. Unbelievably, they are still available in almost every size.

3. Aesop London Travel Kit, $73.00
Hotel toiletries are notoriously hit or miss. This handy kit has all of the necessities for avoiding potentially horrific hotel goods, in formulas suitable for men and women, and sizes compatible with carry-on restrictions. Contains: shampoo, conditioner, body cleanser, body balm, facial cleanser, facial toner, hydrator, and mouthwash.

4. M.Gemi The Mossa Pump, $248.00
I’ve had my eye on this for a while. I love the clean, modern lines of this leather pump. It’s classic, but a little funky too. I can picture it with business clothes as easily as I can with jeans and a tee shirt. And that heel has got to be super comfortable.

5. COS Top With Twist Detail, $89.00
It’s a deep-v black tee with a twist, literally. The twisted front detail makes this shirt a little more interesting and a lot more forgiving through the torso.
