I have been to New York City five times now but this city has so much to offer that I can never check everything off my list. It had always been a dream of mine to shoot on a boat in Central Park and that dream came true last month. Was it everything I dreamed of, you ask? Yes, except for the fact that these row boats are very difficult to navigate. Me? No way (I don't have the strength for that). Jeremy? Barely (haha). Luckily, our friend Brandon was with us and he was surprisingly skilled at rowing the boat so we assigned him that job. It was at sunset, the lighting was perfectly filtered, we floated around the lake and got some nice photos. I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our last evening in NYC.

Some things never get old, like the Brooklyn Bridge. Last year around the same time I woke up at 6am to catch the sunrise on the bridge (see that post here) and I just did it again! Early morning is the best time to go if you want to avoid the crowd and get some decent photos. There was still a decent amount of joggers and bikers but if you are patient enough you will get brief moments where no one will be in your shot. Also, if you are shooting on the Manhattan side facing Brooklyn, the morning sun will be perfectly backlit behind you. It was the morning of 9/11 and there was definitely some intensity in the air. And I thought I would be slightly patriotic by wearing this red silky top by Lovers + Friends from Revolve with tiny star print. I rarely wear red but I adore this top... the ruffles, the asymmetrical sleeves, and the tied details around the neckline. I styled it with a pair of denim from PacSun, a chained mini bag by Henri Bendel, and these fabulous black and white leather booties with the coolest heels by Zvelle. It's been well over two weeks since these photos were taken but I tend to save the best for last so there you have it...

As I mentioned in my previous post that I went up to San Francisco for work a little over a week ago and while I was in town, I stopped by the Camp Campari event hosted by Sunset Magazine and of course Campari America. It was such a lovely day to spend under the sun on the grass at the Log Cabin in Presidio overlooking the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. We got to do activities such as cocktail making, lettering, and shibori dying while sipping on delicious cocktails and munching on yummy bites from Off the Grid. Since the theme of the event was "camp/camping", it was only appropriate that I wore my floral embroidered army jacket by ASTR and my suede combat boots by Hushpuppies! The highlight of the day though was that I got to see many of my SF blogger friends!

A walk down Maiden Lane last week in San Francisco was more of a walk down memory lane for me. While I was in town for work, I stopped by a couple events with one being a cocktail evening at the Christian Louboutin store on Maiden Lane with Christian Louboutin himself. It was so nice to be able to wear slightly more Fall-esque pieces in SF because this heat in LA ain't going nowhere. I wore a cozy longline cardigan by J.Jill, knit cropped top, a pair of windowpane printed pants also by J.Jill, a pair of suede loafers from Chinese Laundry, and a darling pearl embellished handbag by Zac Zac Posen. Keeping things neutral yet fun with some print on print action!

PS. I have partnered up with Chinese Laundry to giveaway a $200 gift card to shop their amazing shoes collection! Go to my Instagram for more info!

I have been living out of a suitcase lately... tiring but keeps me on my toes (literally). Last Sunday I took a last-minute trip up to San Francisco to do some freelance styling work for the company I used to work at. Totally unplanned but it was so nice to see so many familiar faces, it felt like I never left. Hotel Carlton in Nob Hill kindly hosted me in their one and only suite overlooking the city with a view of Sutro Tower. This boutique hotel is just around the corner from the infamous Mr. Holmes Bakehouse and I was so surprised to see a box of their pastries waiting for me in my room! My suite was absolutely beautiful and quirky, I love the fun colors mixed with the black and white (you know I love my black and white). It was a whirlwind but so glad I got to visit the city I once called home.
