A Ted Baker Holiday

01tedbaker
I was recently invited to the newly renovated Ted Baker store in SF to check out the new collection and pick out a few holiday favorites. My eyes lit up upon entering the beautifully displayed store filled with holiday dresses, tailored coats, cozy fur accessories and many more. I probably did quite a few laps around the store before proceeding to the dressing room. I refrained myself from pulling too many things off the racks because I know I would just want them all and have an even harder time deciding. As soon as I slipped into the Florell palm floral dress, I knew it was the one! It just fits in all the right places and I always love a good winter floral print. I paired it with the Bracti wool peplum coat in pale pink and the Cierra tassel clutch in black suede which makes the most perfect holiday clutch! Thank you Ted Baker for glamming me up this holiday season!

Take a Hike

02oldnavyoutdoor
First it was Thanksgiving, now comes Christmas, this is the time of the year when we feast on delicious food and indulge in desserts. It's ok to let loose a little since it is a time to be merry after all, but to help ease the guilt, I like to go hiking (my exercise of choice). I especially love to hike during wintertime when the air feels extra fresh and crisp! To stay cozy and toasty, I wore some awesome Old Navy products... a down-filled jacket in the loveliest cinder smoke color which is a slate gray with a tint of seafoam (sooo pretty and warm!), black and white fair isle sweater (for the holidays), and these stylish yet comfy sneakers perfect for hiking! Who knew Old Navy have such great products for the outdoors? Oh and don't forget about my new Woodzee sunglasses! They are made from real wood, sustainably sourced zebra wood to be exact! How awesome is that?

Leaf Me Alone

01felton
I don't exactly consider myself the outdoorsy type but once in awhile I do enjoy being left alone out in the wild. In the midst of our busy lives and constant interaction with technology, it is nice to unplug for a bit and get in touch with nature. I mentioned, in my last Travel Diary post, that we ventured to Santa Cruz last week. After having breakfast at Rocky's (a hidden gem up in Felton), we wandered around the redwoods and breathed in tons of fresh air. When I am traveling around, I usually wear something more laid back like this outfit here... a simple chiffon blouse, a vintage cocoon sweater coat, corduroy pants, and these incredible cow print Swedish clogs! Oh, and don't forget a hat! I almost always keep a hat in the car!

Travel Diary

00sctravel
I can't believe we are half way through December! I also can't believe it's been 6 months since we've moved from Santa Cruz! Thanks to JdV Hotels for hosting us at the Dream Inn, we were able to visit our old stomping ground for a couple of days last week. We walked on the beach, strolled along the coast, and ate at some of our old favorites. However, we did spend most of our time at the hotel because our view was absolutely breathtaking! Imagine towering over the beach and wharf with a view of the Monterey Bay and waking up to the sound of the ocean... it was truly a nostalgic and relaxing experience!

Wintery Pink

01winterypink
Not into wearing bold red and flashy green during the holidays? No worries! Pastel such as muted pink is surprisingly quite appropriate for winter time if you do it right! All you need is a dusty pink textured longline coat, a pair of pink suede booties, a delicate lace peplum top, and a faux fur bag for that extra coziness... VoilĂ ! You've got a perfect wintery pink look! Who ever said you can't wear pastel in winter? Afterall, fashion has no rules!
