Spring Has Sprung

// Dress: Bebe, Jacket: H&M, Sneakers: Vans, Handbag: Louis Vuitton //

Spring has sprung! Well maybe not literally, but it certainly has in my outfit! I got this dress from Bebe quite some time ago and still love it so much that I decided to giving it some attention. Yes it is cold outside, but with the right amount of layering (I wore a bigger coat but you wouldn't be able to see the details) and pairing it with a simple grey and black jacket, I think it works!

Snow Day

Our trip to the snow has come and gone in a flash. With two exciting days of adventure and laughing behind us, we now have to get back in the swing of things. Back to work, back to school and back to a dried out, cat-abused christmas tree that finally needs to come down. While I would define myself as a "warm weather" person, the beauty of the snow and the drive through the Sierra Mountains is so peaceful and scenic. Being seasoned pros at mini-vacations, I'm sure we will return to the area before the snow melts. Until then, its nice to recap with some pictures from our stay.

Me being quite the history buff, I had to check out the Mark Twain Museum. Look what I found, his desk from the 1800's!

Our favorite hotel in Virginia City... it's haunted too!

Bring on the Snow

Tomorrow evening after work, my boyfriend and I are headed to the snow. While it will be a short, 2-day excursion, I am excited to get away from the city and visit two places we frequent often, Reno and Lake Tahoe. With the weather being on average 30 degrees, and me finding San Francisco weather to be freezing, I am faced with the problem of what to pack. This is always a battle for me because I tend to be an, "I need to bring everything," sorta packer. This time around, I need to tighten the reins and only include items that are of course weather appropriate, comfortable and realistic.  What I decided to do was use Polyvore to create an inspiration board of similar items I own and have decided to bring. The right side of the board shows my staple day pieces, thermals, scarves, badass boots and a parka. To switch up the days, I've chosen to also bring light-weight tops and thermals to layer depending on how cold it is each day. On the left of the board includes a few unrealistic but wearable pieces, each time my boyfriend and I visit Reno or Tahoe we have date night. The items I choose to bring can easily be folded in my suitcase and will look lovely for our one, "fancy" night out. While my day items will get much more use, I just loved the look of the white denim with a black velvet blazer. We'll see how it turns out! More pictures to follow.

Bay Area Legend

// Tweed Jacket: Nasty Gal, Cropped Undershirt: H &M, Oxblood Denim: Zara, Wedges: Aldo, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Louis Vuitton //

Happy New Year's Eve! Thought I'd break out my beloved Giants hat today as inspiration to the upcoming 2013 season. Also, received my new jacket from Nasty Gal a few days ago and love the idea of mixing something so casual (baseball hat) with a cute cropped tweed jacket. I love this jacket because it can be worn with jeans, dresses or really just about anything, it is a great staple piece I have added to my closet! Nasty Gal always has the best stuff on their site. I am highly addicted and must worn new shoppers that you will become addicted just as fast. Check them out here. Here's to 2013 and all that may await in the future. Oh, and of course, can't wait for baseball season to start again.
