Lo’s Loves

Hello friends!

This past week has been a fun one, with many out and about activities in The City. I checked out the Aladdin show at The Orpheum which was fun for the Goldstar ticket price, but not a must-see. I also went to the Asian Art Museum’s exhibit on Korean couture, which proved a little disappointing since the historical garments featured are all modern reproductions. Looking forward to spending some time outside this weekend as the weather clears up.

What fun plans do you have for Veteran’s Day weekend?

Here are a few things I have been loving this week:

  1. The “Queen’s” Last Hurrah: Such a random thing, but United Airlines had a goodbye party for its last 747 flight from SFO to Hawaii and it looked so cute! I have been flying on United since I was a little girl, and this party made me reminiscent of the flights I have taken on the 747 jet. And honestly, how cute is the lei that they put on the airplane?!
  2. Sufjan Stevens’ Song: I am such a fan of this angsty artist and I am loving his new-ish song “Mystery of Love“. It is a little whiny and definitely not for everyone (my brother who is a fan usually of Sufjan promptly professed his dislike for the song when I shared it with him) but personally, I’ll be listening to it all weekend.
  3. Meryl Streep Meets Anna Wintour at Vogue: Vogue’s YouTube channel is easily one of my favorites, and I love this recent video with two powerhouse women! They talk about their work and their belief in a future female POTUS, plus there’s plenty of Devil Wears Prada references!
  4. A Confused Cow: I think cows might be my favorite animal they always seem so playful and sweet (if not already plainly obvious by that sentence, I don’t eat red meat). This video of a cow who thinks he is a dog brought an instant smile to my face.
  5. Bow Shoes from Eugenia Kim X Banana Republic: How perfect are these heels for the holidays? The price is not so perfect, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for them if they go on sale!

 

Weekly Vlog Week of September 25th

Happy Thursday aka Friday Jr!

Today I am sharing the next video in my vlog series, this is another one from back in September. It is a little bit more of a window into my everyday life, since I don’t go on any trips or get stranded at an airport in this vlog!

I hope you have been enjoying these videos, I’m currently working on one vlog for all of October that I will upload next week.

Weekly Vlog Week of September 17th

Hello readers!

Alright, so I will quickly admit I am a little late in posting this video, but it was my first time filming and editing a vlog so it took longer than expected! I am so proud of how this project turned out and definitely will be posting more video content in the future.

You can watch this vlog and get an update about what I do in a typical week. In this vlog I attend an art festival, hang out with friends and travel to the midwest.

Please enjoy and let me know what you think!

Gingham Goodbye

 

fullsizeoutput_2318Gingham has kind of the preppy-yet-trendy runaway hit the summer, and it was a total must-have for me all season long. Since the weather in Northern California is still pretty warm I have been wearing my favorite summer looks one last time as sort of a goodbye gesture.

To me, this look perfectly summed up the summer 2017 trends— gingham, ruffles, off the shoulder tops, and a bright color. I loved pairing the busy pattern of the top with the bright solid skirt. The ruffle wrap in the skirt gave it such a great flare, but it did make me a little nervous when I would wear the skirt on windy days!

 

What have some of your favorite summer looks been?

State of Grace

IMG_2571I recently found myself with some free time during an afternoon in San Francisco. So, I did what any sensible style blogger would do—I acted like a tourist in my own city and took some blog pictured in one of my favorite areas of the city, Union Square. This is one of my go-to outfits during spring. I love this dress and how easy it is to dress up with accessories. Since it’s finally spring, I had to add some mint and lavender jewelry pieces! I toted around my favorite kate spade new york carry-all (perfect for days in the city when I need to bring a lot of things). I wore a pair of chic and comfortable snakeskin flats. The outfit comes together in simple, understated elegance— it puts me in a “State of Grace”.
