Spent some much needed time at the beach yesterday. I was lucky to grow up about a block away from the water and it still has such a calming effect on me.

(Also, I’m super in love with this chunky scarf I just picked up from H&M. It looks like it’s sold out online right now, but they seem to still have them in stores.)


Barney cuddles!


Bubbly and Christmas movies with the best friend. Can’t believe we have known each other since we were 7-years-old.


Festive poinsettias at Swanson’s Nursery, and my new loafers from Everlane. :)


Real live reindeer! I had never seen one before and was in total awe. Don’t worry, they were well taken care of and seemed very relaxed and happy.


My parents and I went and checked out the new Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room last week, and I have to say, it was pretty impressive. I am all for independent coffee shops and roasters, but let’s be honest. I was born and raised in Seattle, so I do still feel some loyalty to Starbucks.



Me and Barney taking a rest after helping Mom decorate the tree. He is actually laying on top of me. If you look by the leg of the coffee table down on the left, you can see my slipper. His head and upper half of his body are resting on my stomach and legs. He’s so funny!


I love red wine in the winter. Helena also loves it when I switch over to red from my usual Sauvignon Blanc, haha.


Spotted this amazing coat while in Nordstrom and just had to have it. Don’t worry it’s faux, but still so soft and cozy.


SWOOOON. (Especially the one on the top left.)


Wore this funny holiday turtleneck to an ugly sweater party. It has little skiing bears on it, which made me smile. I paired it with red pants, tied a chunky cream turtleneck sweater around my waist, and topped the look off with a red bow in my hair. Classy as can be!


The love bug, ready to play.


Me and my 98-year-old grandmother, Ruthie, out for a little walk, taking in the sights. :)


My parents surprised me with a ticket to see the Seattle Men’s Chorus perform their annual holiday tradition, “Our Gay Apparel.” It was phenomenal. We all left laughing, singing and really feeling the spirit of the holiday. Thanks, Mom and Dad, I had a blast! xo

Well, that’s all for now from my current neck of the woods.

Hope you are enjoying the holiday season wherever you are.

Merry (almost) Christmas! xoxo


Hi guys, happy Monday! Hope everyone’s weekend was great. I spent mine relaxing with my family and catching up with friends. It feels so good to be home.


My Dad shot these photos for me when we were out and about running errands in Fremont. I thought this wall mural was a nice, colorful change and felt like it contrasted nicely with my mostly grey and blue outfit, which now brings me to my look.

So, I had my eye on these grey leather pants and finally was able to snag them due to them being heavily on sale and some unused credit at Shopbop. They are so comfortable and such a pretty color. I actually took them to the tailor to get them shortened, right after photographing them, and can’t wait to get them back in a few weeks. I have a feeling they will be in heavy rotation over the next couple of months.




My new, most favorite flats…The Modern Loafer in Midnight by Everlane.

They are super comfortable and really well made. The leather is soft and flexible but also weather resilient at the same time. I absolutely love them and am currently on the wait list for the burgundy, and black version as well.






Have a happy week! xoxo

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am so excited because I am flying to Seattle today for the holidays. I can’t wait to see my friends, family and of course, Barney! I packed this skirt with me and plan on wearing it on New Year’s Eve with Casey. Not sure what we are doing yet, but regardless, I always like to dress up a bit and this number is the perfect piece to work into my outfit. The tiny scallops, box pleats and silvery fabric add a festive touch and gives off a sweet and feminine vibe, which I really like. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show you easy ways to style it up, simply by changing out the top and necklace, creating two different fun and festive looks!

During the winter months I live in some sort of puffy sleeping bag coat that covers up anything cute I might be wearing underneath and doesn’t really allow for a lot of bangles or bracelet stacking, since they tend to get caught up in the sleeve while I’m removing my coat. With that said, I find myself wearing less and less jewelry as it gets colder but I still like to have at least one pretty and classic piece on, which ends up being a watch of some sort. When Movado approached me about their holiday program, I jumped at the chance to style up a piece from their collection since I am a huge fan of the brand. I styled up their Movado Museum Wrap watch, which is made of stainless steel with a white mother-of-pearl Museum dial and Swiss quartz movement. It’s such an elegant and versatile piece and can be worn alone or stacked with delicate bangles.

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you’re surviving this wet and dreary weather. Thankfully, this weekend is supposed to be a bit nicer, so if you’re downtown in the city during the afternoon, come hang out with me at the Bloomingdales in Soho! I will be there from 1-4 along with Nixon Watches and InStyle magazine, where we will be sharing the new watch styles available (a perfect holiday gift!) as well as offering helpful accessory styling and stacking tips! (See official invite below.)

Hope to see you all there!
