I can’t say the weather was too pleasant in San Francisco for our briefest of stays but when is it ever, right? Can always rely on seeing tourists in flip flops though. Our trip was nonstop. We stayed at my parent’s house the first night after a long drive up the 101, barely catching my dad to hang out for a bit before he left for Japan the next morning. He and Colin get along to a degree that confounds me..sometimes I have to vacate the area while they sample obscure beers, unveil all kinds of embarrassing infantile photos, and threaten to disappear in a cloud of cigar smoke beneath his vintage rifle. Disturbing. We checked into our hotel on Nob Hill the next day after I did the requisite hunting for old clothes that suddenly seem interesting again (rasta crochet bikini, hooded robe-like sweater) and got a little crazy with the champagne and the iPod until receiving a call asking us to simmer down due to a couple noise complaints. Nice hotel = old people that go to sleep at 9:00. So he apologetically said anyway. Took to the streets bundled up, froze anyway, and were exposed to far more exercise than was necessary due to the almost 90 degree slopes surrounding in all directions. Hmm. Killer sushi at Sanraku, assorted smoothie drinks and peanut butter m&ms from the liquor store, and a hilariously failed attempt to decide on a bar that would be the most fun later put us right back where we started. Followed up with a breakfast at my favorite Curbside Cafe, it was essentially the perfectly imperfect night. I’ll try to be back later in the summer, SF..

Northern California is so beautiful.
I had kind of a Cher Horowitz moment getting dressed here..this AA piece is pretty damn sheer so I threw on this ever so substantial scarf I picked up at a cheesy boutique by my house last year and stuck my arms through the holes to keep it in place. Anyone know what scene I’m talking about? Sometimes it takes me a really long time to find the right time to wear something. And a new $17 tote from Forever21! I love the print.
I was in the middle of working on a post right now when my extremely lovely booker Jen emailed me that the Style Guide I shot for Revolve is up..make sure to check out the video complete with utterly embarrassing clips of me playing a violin missing half it’s strings. Much love to everyone at Revolve!

I rediscovered this sweater I cut up last fall when I was packing my bags for SF, I never noticed before how cool the bell sleeves are. I think I’d be a much better dressed person if I had any kind of organizational system going on in my closets. I hope to someday render the concept of rediscovery invalid.
I had an amazing weekend in the Bay Area that I can’t wait to share but for now I’m exhausted to the point of delirium..all I have to say is that California is way too big.

Never got around to posting these from right before I got my hair cut…I’ll admit it’s healthier now but I’m doing everything in my power to get it to grow back faster. I’m open to tips!
This is one of the lovely pieces that Topshop sent me that I decided to cut up to create my own slouchy version of the Sophomore dress I’ve been eyeing for months now. Couldn’t be breezier. Literally.
