Jackson Square

This past weekend Kevin and I had the opportunity to catch up and shoot with our wedding photographer and friend, Jasmine Lee.  We kind of fell in love with our wedding team (I hate to call them 'vendors') and have become friends with almost all of them.  Jasmine shot our engagement photos as well as our wedding and let me tell you she is nothing short of amazing and has become a dear friend to the both of us (you can click here to check out our engagement shoot and here to see our wedding on Style Me Pretty)

Girls’ Weekend Guide: LA

It’s been over a week now since we had our girls’ (#BFFWeekend) in Los Angeles and I am still reminiscing about how much fun we had.  Truth be told, I have not spent much time in LA until this year and have really been enjoying my time there.  A good girlfriend of mine from college just moved there from NYC so I have been overdosing this summer on LA girl time and have come to the conclusion that it’s an amazing city to host a weekend with friends.  Good food, sunshine, and the possibility of a Ryan Gosling sighting- it’s perfect. read more

In CINC: Behind the Scenes with Chriselle Lim

A little over a month or so ago one of my favorite bloggers, Chriselle Lim (the beauty behind The Chriselle Factor) held a contest for two friends to come and spend a day with her and her team at their Los Angeles studio.  I immediately thought of one of my best friends from college, Julie, who lives on the opposite coast and I haven't gotten to spend time with since our wedding.  I figured 'what do we have to lose' and told her about the contest and that we should enter.  Julie (who is a teacher and has such a way with words) submitted an entry and about a week later to our complete shock- we won!  We were beside ourselves at not only the thought of spending the day with Chriselle but getting to spend a girls weekend together in LA.

Summer Layers in SF

No matter what the weather is during the day here in San Francisco, it goes without saying that you'll be needing extra layers for the evening.   For summer nights I love to wear a lightweight jacket or trench- and have been getting a lot of use out of this silk trench coat.  Besides this one being my favorite color (blush), it really is the perfect layering piece to stow away in your purse and throw on as soon as it gets chilly. Not to mention that it can easily take a simple outfit like a t-shirt an jeans into something totally chic and pulled together.

Weekend in Calistoga

Kevin and I spent this past weekend in Calistoga and let me tell you, it is in incredible place.  Surrounded by nature, Calistoga is filled with countless wineries, shops, resorts and sunshine and we found it to be the perfect little weekend getaway from the city.  I really enjoyed the more low-key aspect of Calistoga in comparison to Napa and Sonoma as we found places were never too packed and it was easy to navigate around town.

We were in town for a wedding and extended our stay so we spent most of our time at the
