SF Summer of Love

hippie

It’s the 5oth Anniversary of SF’s Summer of Love, people! And so many “summer of lovey” things have been happening lately…

  1. First of all, I actually went to the Summer of Love exhibit at the Deyoung just a week back and it was to DIE for. Totally geeked out and got the audio tour, wrote notes on my phone, and made the whole group wait at the end for me since I was reveling in all it’s glory just a little toooo long.
  2. Outsidelands was last weekend! Which is basically hippies dancing in fields ala Summer of Love right? โœŒ๏ธ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŒพ ย (I skipped it for the first year, in forever ,ย  and went out to Guerneville instead BUTย the point is I was still out in nature, exploring and consuming trees ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ‘ฃย  so….#summeroflove vibes for sure ๐ŸŒž
  3. Speaking of, love in the air! It was just Katie and my 7 year anniversary!! Yayyyy for us! I know you’re prob not reading this babe, but I love you.๐Ÿ’žโœจ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ’‹โ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโœจ๐Ÿ’ž

Anyway, I don’t know if this shoot was inspired by alllllย that has transpiredย the last few weeks or if I’m just naturally a hippie boho kinda chick (๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ‘ ) but I’m really digging the sense of freedom that came of it. I could feelย the wind blow through the lace kaftanย (literally cause I was freezing my ass off ๐Ÿ˜‚), lifting and tousling my hair, chill the tip of my nose.๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’จ ย Brisk yet peaceful…

That is SF, and all I wanted to do was keep dancing in this field; I’m sure the people at the Trips Festival ofย 1966ย got nipped by the cold SF air a time or two….๐Ÿค” I wonder… I mean, it was Golden Gate Park after all…ย ๐ŸŒฅ๐Ÿ‘ฏ ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒพ

Psst: Earlier this summer I was also a part of Free People’s Summer of Love campaign! Check out more on the FPย blog, and see if you can find my contribution to their Summer of Love playlist ๐Ÿ˜‰

Beer Rec: Rare Barrel Supermassive

The Facts
Style:ย Dark Sour
ABV:ย 6.9%
Brewer: Theย Rare Barrel
Location: Berkely, CA

So it’s been awhile since I’ve done a beer post, oops. Too busy drinking Aperol Spritz lately.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Wanted to bring it back though with one of my local favs, Rare Barrel. An East Bay house of sours, ย these guys make some of the most mouth puckering brews around! ๐Ÿ˜™ That being said…they mellowed out ever so slightly with this dark sour. Still sour but softened a bit by theย aging in oak barrels and brettanomyces fermentation.

TASTE TEST: Minimal carbonation. Sour for sure but less then most extreme bright Rare Barrel beers.ย Dark cherry color. Ripe blueberry notes. Grapes (red not green). Not overly mouth puckering. Definitely notes of blackberry, and black currants. Hint of dark chocolate and raisens in the mouth but tart/tannic on the finish.ย ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’

What’s the point of living in a city if you can’t enjoy rooftop drinking? Looking out over the cityscape on a warm summers eve….HA jokes on me cause it’s cloudy AF on this Sunday. Thank you, SF. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‘๐ŸŒ But that won’t stop me from living my best rooftop beer dreams.ย ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

So….Roof beers anyone?? Sippinsundays? Let’s do it! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿบ

The Wrap Maxi Skirt

The Wrap Maxi Skirt – My Go Toย Vacation Piece

I bought this floral maxi skirt from Reformationย at the start of summerย for alllll my upcoming travels, butย now I have to blog about it sinceย it’s been (and will continue to be) my go-to vacation look. Let’s be honest, when & where would this skirt notย work? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I took it to Ibiza and will be taking it to Italy in Sept, Hawaii in November and Mexico in December. So, seeeee?! It’s really a year round purchase, as “summery” as it may look.ย ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰

I loveeee the flexibility it brings to my vacation wardrobe because I can dress it down with some slides and a bikini top for the beach or dress it up with heels and a blouse for dinner.๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ‘ 

Pairing a high waisted wrapย skirt with just a simple white cami or off-the-shoulder crop is the perfect level of casual chic that I like to go for on vacation.๐ŸŒผ ๐ŸŒธ ๐ŸŒบ ย That effortless cool, like when Iย just get off the beach but then 5 minutes later, ready for a glamorous dinner.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰โœจโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’…

With that trail of fabric flowing behind me, I always feel like a goddess in a wrapped maxi. ๐Ÿ‘˜๐Ÿ‘‘

All Red Is All In

red-trend1

Let it be known: ALL RED IS IN.

From traveling around Europe this summer and seeing it with my own eyes, to the new Haim single, to this look I creepily snappedย from Solange’s Insta-story (my major style icon) I have in fact confirmed the rumors are true…the newest trend is all red all the time. ๐Ÿ”ป๐Ÿ”บ๐Ÿ”ป๐Ÿ”บ๐Ÿ”ป๐Ÿ”บ๐Ÿ”ป๐Ÿ”บ

This can be a seriously intimidating look, only meant for the fiercest of women; but I don’t let that intimidate me, I let it empower me. ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ Fuck YES I can wear all red. Fuck YES I’ll make some heads turn. And fuck YES I will feel like a boss, and that is most definitely what matter most. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผโšก๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Think of it like, wearing a sexy new piece of lingerieย when you’re going to sleep with someone for the first time. ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ™ˆ Chances are they’re going to undo it and toss it aside before they even see it! So why do we wear it? Sheer bold confidence. ๐Ÿ”ฅ The all red trend is my outer lingerie. Same purpose, more visibility. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผโœจ

(…And yes, I don’t stop there). Add some red shoes and accessories to finish off the look:

Getting Festival Ready with Levi’s

levis1

I'm SO excited to announce that I'll be hosting the first of Levi's Summer Fridays series! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😄 Each Friday, for the next 3 weeks, Levi's Emeryville will be throwing an evening of drinks, denim and dancing; all while getting some rad customizations for your denim pieces. ✔️👖🍺🎶

So naturally, I'M THERE! (but literally) 🤣😝

From distressing to patchwork, embroidery and repair, the Tailor Shop will make sure you're ready for anything in a one-of-a-kind look. 👌🏼🆒 This Friday (8/6), get festival-ready with me and learn how to add fun patches to your favorite pair of jeans or denim jacket for a completely original festival outfit. Honestly, the world Tailor Shop is your oyster and you can make your wildest denim dreams come true. 🙌🏼✨👖☺️

Trust me, I just went there last night for my first custom Levi's experience and left the store BEAMING, all my dreams DEF came true. Who knew all of that was possible?! Not me! Even though I wear Levi's 5/7 days a week, I've never had any experience using their Tailor shop, and (I'll admit) didn't even fully understand it's capabilities. 😬😳 I can't unveil my custom design yet, but scroll down for a sneak peak (and check out my Insta-story for some BTS footie while it lasts)! 💯

So, come join me this Friday in-store, as I show my styling and and customizing processes for my all original festival look. 🙏🏼😛 The event runs from 5-9pm (but mama's gotta workkk), so I'll be there at 6pm for the first customization workshop. Second workshop is at 8pm, but I'll be at available all night to help you decide on customizations or answer any styling questions you might have! 🙂🤗

Drinks, Denim, DJ, Dancing… I mean that's ALL the best D words! 😜😎 Wayyyy too much fun to pass up. (RSVP here) 🎶🥂👖✨🍸👯

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: The Fall Edit

^ Click the product directly to shop ^

 

I know “basics” are one of the most popular thing to shop at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but aside from my favorite bra in the entire world, I like to splurge a bit during sales, not buy basics. It’s time to get some solid new pieces to make sure I’m fall ready… I can get a t-shirt tomorrow.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

For me, fall is about three things: new pants, new coats and new soft sweaters!!!!

Shop my top picks forย Anniversary Sale denim:

Even though winter isn’t here yet, the lifespan of myย light denim jacket is soon to be short lived. Time to start swapping for some longer, cozier coats! Quite literally, I uncover all my statement coats and pack-up the lightweight crops – not enough room in that closet, ya feel me?!

Shop my favorite cozy coats and sweaters:

Each year when the The Nordstrom Anniversary Saleย comes around, one thing is on my mind: shoes. As the seasons are about to turn, it’s a great time to stock up on boots for fall, get your last pair of cute SS17 slides in, and grab a few much needed basics while you’re at it.ย ๐Ÿ˜„

Shop my favorite sneakers (slash really favorite shoe because sneakers are all I really wear ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ):

Shop the best loafers and flats ๐Ÿ‘ž:

Shop fall boots ๐Ÿ‘ข:

Don’t forget, you can always check up onย ALL my NSale favoritesย under the “SHOP” link on my navigation bar.
