It is hard to believe how quickly January came and went. Like usual, it was a busy month for me. I celebrated the New Year with a small gathering at my house, took full advantage of several brunches with the ladies, and dyed my hair back to dark. I attended a 1920’s themed party, had a fab photoshoot (coming soon) with the talented Maria, and of course swooped up some new goodies (see here here here and here)
Are we Insta pals? If not be sure to follow me here!
So many blessings to celebrate the past month or so. My brother got engaged, we celebrated my mom’s bday, Dapper Fellow’s mom’s bday, had a girls weekend in Scottsdale with my bests, went to the Soja concert w/Dapper Fellow, and of course bought a few new pairs of shoes. xoxo,
Is anyone else super excited that today is Thursday!? I need this week to end, pronto!! I haven’t done an Instagram Roundup in a minute and thought I would share with you my outfit snaps over the past couple weeks…
1) I am currently coveting all hats at the moment. This is an oldie but goodie from Urban Outfitters. 2) I picked up these lace peak-a-boo leggings in NYC and I love the subtle sass they bring. 3) Head to toe vintage right here. Some of my fav fall colors as well. 4) Plaid, jeans and Miu Mius…Need I say more.
A favorite combo of mine is Leopard and well ANYTHING.
1) Love for Chi 2) Cozy Sunday at Bradies 3) It’s 90 degrees in November 4) Brunch outside? Say what????
Fun day in the grass playing with my pups.
I hope everyone is having a great week! Cheers to Friday being tomorrow!
This is a hard Instagram roundup for me. I am heartsick for NYC and reliving these snapshots are very dear to me. They remind me of the fun I had, the life-changing experiences that happened, the memories with friends, reuniting with old friends, and overall magic I lived in for the week I was there. I am already planning my next trip in the Spring where I intend to spend a few more days in Williamsburg!
1) Straight off the plane and I am smiling ear to ear! 2) The cutest mini bagel and lox, 3) The gorgeous Kate Spade flagship store where I wish I lived 4) My two gf’s I met in NYC, Annie and Joelle on our first night in the city. 1) My first Broadway show, Newsies. I was so overwhelmed with emotion. It was one of my favorite movies as a kid. 2) Drinks at Beauty & Essex (where we just missed Mila Kunis) 3) Sissy and I at Hudson Station 4) Selfie inside Annie’s apt she rented, the walls were covered with awesome art and quotes. 1) Noah Champion Buck, we went to college together in Vancouver, he lives in LA, Annie lives in SF and I live in PHX, reunited in NYC!! 2) My babe Ashley, she recently relocated to NYC from AZ and this is who I stayed with. 3) Katie is also someone we went to college with in Van, she now lives in Boston and has the cutest little Addy. So thankful for her joining us for a day in NYC. 4) My fab sorority sister and I reunited after 8 years. Pi Phi’s for life! 1) The best slice of pizza I have ever had. 2) Queens graffiti 3) Central Park <3 4) Annie and I at Finnerty’s
We biked across the Brooklyn Bridge, around Brooklyn and then back across the Manhattan Bridge. It was a highlight of my trip and I definitely recommend it. By the end of the ride I was weaving in and out acting like a NYC’erSt Paul’s Chapel is one of my favorite spots to visit while in NYC. It is magical and will move you to tears every time. There is this sense of peace and flooding love that I feel every time I visit it there. It was an added bonus that across the street from where we Annie & Joelle were staying just so happened to be the newest Banksy exhibit. We thankfully got there before the car door was stolen.
Me, getting teary eyed at the airport because I had to leave.
I hope you’re all having a great week.

Hey hey hey!
Is it just me or has everyone and everything been non-stop lately? The end of Summer is always a hectic time, but this year especially I am finding it difficult to stay above water. I am looking forward to the remaining of September being pretty low key. Last weekend Dapper Fellow, my mom and I went to San Diego. We stayed downtown at one of my fav SD hotels, the US Grant! My mom and I swam in the La Jolla Rough Water Swim. This was a first for both of us and let me tell you…it was INTENSE! It was such a special event to share with my mom and I think she is going to convince me to do it again next year. 1) Hello Gorgeous shirt from Old Navy. 2) We checked out the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens at Liberty Station. It was amazing! 3) I met a Pommy named Leo while walking downtown SD. 4) Wearing Dapper Fellow’s hat.
5) Amazing chandeliers at the US Grant. 6) An awesome quote that has been on my mind lately. 7) #ootd ALL Old Navy, killing it! 8) Chess at the Pannikin in La Jolla, CA. 9) Stripes and Leopard #ootd 10) My new Origami Owl necklace c/o Lisa 11) Snakeskin is going to be sooooo huge this fall, picked up these Donald Pliner sneaks this week. 12) My <3 and I <313) Starbucks’ new Squash croissant 14) THE CUTEST King Charles puppies. 15) Junkyard diving 16) Mom and I just before our race started.
I hope you have a wonderful day today!

Fun at Scribe Winery (see my review here) and a rooftop view of Oakland.
Our Sonoma trip was full of amazing tastings, a day at the lake, laughing on the porch and eating delicious food. The best part of the trip was that my mom surprised me and flew in for a day! I have the best girlfriends in the world. <3Don’t even get me started on this Lobster Roll. AMAZING! The best sign ever. A sweet note from my favs over at Hearts Fashion. One of the better Ebay purchases as of late. My fav pressed juice from Chopshop. The best peace out end piece that I need in my house ASAP. A night in to celebrate my bestie’s bday. Casual Friday. Date night at a new spot we fell in love with called 5th and Wine. You all helped me decide between black and white…I chose white! Stay-cation at the W Scottsdale. Ironically our favorite Rose from Domaine Carneros was 1/2 off, imagine that! Cocktails by the pool. Mucho mixed prints for a busy work day. Followed by some coffee and relaxation time. Last, but not least a FABULOUS visit to the Kendra Scott store where I was able to create my own piece at the Color Bar. Stay tuned for tomorrow!!
