Summer is turning to fall quickly this year, and I’m more than ready for the shift of seasons. One of my favorite fall fashion pieces is scarves. They can dress up and add style to an average look, and their cozy feel is comforting on a brisk, chilly morning. Living under the redwoods, I find myself wearing a big, warm scarf at home in my loungewear on most fall evenings. One of my favorite fall looks is a messy bun or ponytail and a scarf, perfect for days when I am not up for doing my hair. If you’re not on the scarf bandwagon yet, keep scrolling for major scarf inspiration.

When I was in Paris this Summer, I was immensely inspired to upgrade my daily look. The Parisians know how to elevate their style effortlessly with a bold lip color or fun accessory. One element I noticed again and again was their creativity when it came to silk scarves. Paris is known for the classic silk scarf tied around the neck, but my visit proved they have broadened their signature look quite a bit. If you’re like me and constantly try to emulate a Parisian, check out a few simple ways adding a silk scarf to your wardrobe can do just that…

Most trends are cyclical, moving in and out of vogue over time. What was fashionable for an older generation, i.e. bellbottoms, may be a dreaded faux pas later; yet some pieces are so iconic that they have made repeated encores. Here are a few examples of style fads that have made impressive comebacks:
High Waisted Bathing Suit
Wide Leg Pant
Oversized Sun Hat
Off The Shoulder
High Waisted Jeans

I associate the color Burgundy with Fall. It’s deep, warm, and romantic. I wear it all year long, but especially this time of year. Shop some of my favorite shades of Burgundy for Fall:
Free People, Wine
Madewell, Deepest Burgundy
Topshop, Check Mix
Lucky Brand, Beet Suede
Nordstrom, Burgundy Stem Jen Plaid
Madewell, Dark Cabernet
Topshop, Berry Red
“The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can’t but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching.” -Enya
I have been LIVING in this LBD–date night, girls night, every night!

My favorite book of all time. I love to re-read it every chance I get. “Trusting yourself means living out what you already know to be true.” -Cheryl Strayed
P.S. Dear Sugar Radio is the best for long car rides, long walks, and just about any other time you feel like it.
Has anyone else been wondering what the difference between sweatpants and joggers are? I’m pretty sure the only difference is that joggers are socially acceptable to wear out and about, whereas sweatpants are frowned upon. These are basically the only thing I wore in Disneyland. And yes, I call them joggers.
Something else I can’t stop wearing: this scarf. It’s soft, warm, and burgundy. Need I say more?
I have found the holy grail of skin care products. Tarte’s Maracuja Oil is a miracle. Acne? Cured. Dry skin? Gone. Glowing? Yes. You’re welcome.
Stay tuned for new obsessions–they change every week.
Since it is now 2016, I think it is appropriate to reflect on some of my favorite blog posts–going all the way back to the beginning! I love looking back and seeing how my style has evolved. I’m proud of these looks. This blog has been a wonderful outlet, and I’m so excited for what’s to come!
Happy New Year!!!

With the holidays approaching, I can’t help but start thinking about warm beverages, late mornings, Christmas movies, good books, and a warm fire to curl up next to. To really relax, however, I need to be properly dressed for the occasion. And that means… loungewear. It’s comfortable, but cute enough to run down to the market in when you run out of eggnog.
“That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.”
― Ray Bradbury
I LOVE Fall. In the spirit of things, I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I associate with my favorite season.
Big Bowls of Hot Chocolate and Chai at Zazie
Dark Shades of Lipstick
A New Book (preferably read by a fire)
Knee High Boots
Macy’s and Gap have had so many sales recently! Here’s what I bought:
These buys will be perfect for summer in San Fransisco, and warmer parts of the state!
My everyday outfit right now consists of a heavy coat, skinny jeans, booties, and a scarf. For me, Fall Fashion is all about wearing the warm, yet pale tones in the air.
H&M’s coats are the affordable, and trendy. The shade of your coat is important in keeping the theme of your outfit alive.
To match, I’ve chosen a cozy Anthropologie infinity scarf.
Fall is the perfect time to experiment with your jeans— specifically different colors and patterns. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone!
I like my booties on the darker side, that way they’re more versatile. Sole Society is one of my favorite shoe brands. These boots help bring your look full circle.
