Rainbow Flowers

RED Valentino Dress (top and jacket version), Burberry Trench, Alice + Olivia Bag c/o, Valentino Heels

First off, If you’re in SF, I would love for you to join me this evening from 7-9 pm for a girls’ night out at Joie on Fillmore. You can find the details here. Hope to see you there!

I saved up a few gift cards to purchase this RED Valentino dress from Shopbop. I’ve been a huge fan of the brand for a long time and can’t believe I finally have one of their beautiful creations. I knew our one year wedding anniversary this past Sunday was the perfect occasion to debut it. I would gladly fill my entire wardrobe with every RED Valentino dress out there! Here are a few other favorites from their collection:

Leather Jackets

Theory Leather Jacket $1195
Alice + Olivia Jacket $998
Marc by Marc Jacobs Jacket $858
Club Monaco Jacket $695
Veda x Madewell Jacket $555
Zara Jacket $239
BCBGeneration Jacket $128
Ark & Co. Jacket $98
Mango Jacket $80

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect black leather jacket for some time now. I’ve had my camel colored one for a few years and get so much wear out of it. I can’t even count how many times I’ve said to myself “I wish I had a black leather jacket to go with this” when I’m getting ready in the morning. I know you can find great leather (or faux) jackets at all price points, but I’m thinking about investing in something based on the quality so that I can still wear it 20+ years from now. I bought a faux leather jacket from Forever 21 a while back, but ended up not getting much use out of it because it started to fall apart after a few wears. I’ve put together my list of favorites- ranging at all different prices- but have yet to make a decision. So, which jacket would you pick? Would you save up to buy something nice or go for a less expensive alternative?

Bow Tie Blouse

Jenni Kayne Blouse, Club Monaco Skirt, Alice + Olivia Bag c/o, H & M Trench (old, similar here), Valentino Heels, Estée Lauder Lipgloss in “Fuchsia Fantasy”

This outfit combines two of my favorite things- bows and stripes- but in a polished way. It’s easy for me to get carried away and end up look too girly, so I love how my studded pumps give it a bit of edge. Club Monaco also makes the most flattering (length and fit) skirts ever! I recently bought this striped one after loving this one I bought last fall and wore over and over.
