What To Own Before You Turn 30.

What To Own Before You Turn 30.

Yes, 30 years old is a real number and yes Melissa and I are almost 30 in a few years. Its hard to believe that in a few years we will be 30. I came across this article on Harper’s Bazaar last night while checking my twitter account. And yes I am the girl who checks her social media in the morning and when I go to bed.. just like a newspaper.  I cam across this article about What To Own Before You Turn 30. I was of course curious and had to read this. First of all a lot of these things would be wonderful to own its just hard to sink in that I am about to turn 30.  The article goes on to state that you need a great pair of shoes, your signature scent, artwork, your favorite flower and of course a great handbag. I feel like I am almost close to have a few things check off this list! But I do have a few years to see if my signature scent will change and which handbag will be my ultimate favorite. I am a handbag whore lets be honest.

Check out this article and let us know what you think you should have before you turn 30!

SF. Winter Style.

San Francisco Winter STyle
 
San Francisco winter weather has been great over the past few days! Its not too cold but not too hot! I am in love with it. Even thou I am stuck in bed with a cold I had to share my outfit inspiration for this great weather! All you need is some winter essentials such as boots, beanie and of course lip balm! I want to keep it causal but still street chic at the same time!

Polar Vortex – Snow Day Survival Style

I didn’t think the storm would be THAT bad. Boy, was I wrong! Silly me, I walked out in classic black Keds (definitely not snow appropriate)…yes, I changed to boots.

Hmmm…I wonder what Chauncey’s wearing today. Apparently, it’s 65 – 70 degrees in San Francisco. She’s sick in bed :( and I hope she feels better soon.

It has been snowing for over 10 hours, so here’s what I wore to stay toasty during  blizzard Janus (…since when did they start naming snow storms?):

1. C.Wonder knit cable beanie with fur topper (similar C. Wonder hat here or ASOS faux fur pom beanie here)

2. Striped scarf (similar LOFT scarf here)

3. Betsey Johnson hooded wool coat with heart twisty toggles (old, similar coats here)

4.  Black Hunter Original Tall Rain Boots with Pink Welly Fleece Boot Socks (old, similar here)

Also, no snow day is complete without hot chocolate & oversized marshmallows. Mmmmmm! 

Stay warm!

Trends to Die in 2013

I wrote this post for TrendHungry.com. See it here.

2013 was full of fabulous and not so fabulous fashion trends. It’s the beginning of a new year and I’m crossing my fingers that these five trends will die out this year. Do you agree? Do tell in the comments below!

5. Overalls

How did overalls become 2013’s latest trend? Overalls remind me of playgrounds and farming. This denim piece should have stayed in the ‘90s and only come in children sizes.
