How-To: Top Knot

Step 1: Part hair down the middle and gather at base of neck
Step 2: Pull hair into a high ponytail, leaving the part
Step 3: Hold base of ponytail with one hand a twist the ponytail with the other hand

Step 4: Once the ponytail is twisted, start to wrap around into a bun
Step 5. Secure with a hair tie

Step 6. Pull a few loose hairs down for a laid-back look

I wear my hair like this multiple times throughout the week when I’m
too lazy to do anything else. It’s quick, simple and easy and can be
worn up high or at the base of the neck as well.

Fall Colors

Blouse Madewell, Shorts UO, Scarf c/o Awear, Sunglasses Ray Ban, Purse c/o Rebecca Minkoff, Cuff H&M, Heels Banana Republic

Yesterday was one of warmest, prettiest days in SF. It felt weird bringing shorts back out in October, but I paired them with some of my favorite fall colors. Thomas and I started out our day by heading to the bookstore where I picked up “The Paris Wife” to read in my spare time. What are some books you’re reading?

A Little Sparkle

Sweater J. Crew (on sale!), Blouse Karen Kane, Jeans c/o James Jeans, Necklace Forever21, Bag Chicos, Flats c/o ShoeMint, Sunglasses Dior

Every Sunday Thomas and I head to the farmer’s market to stock up on fresh produce and fruit. We would usually go to the Ferry building but now that we live in the Marina, we tried out the smaller market at Fort Mason. Since our weekends are pretty low key, I always opt for something comfortable and easy to walk in. These James Jeans (I am wearing the Couture Skinny Vesper) are the perfect pair of skinny jeans that can go with everything. I love the way they fit and the quality is amazing. I wore them a couple times during the week and they didn’t stretch out like most jeans, which I find so annoying. They are definitely my new favorite pair of jeans and you will be seeing a lot more of them! Check out James Jean’s new collection here and get 25% off your whole order! Use code: JJ007 now until 10/15 Trust me, you will love them!
