I'm talking about a little place called Napa

A place where every girl in sight wears wedges and big hats. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Napa.

All jokes aside, Napa is so insanely beautiful. Our little work day trip opened my eyes to the wonder of Napa. Sitting outside in the Vineyard at Peju Winery felt like I was on the set of a movie or in an enchanted vineyard from a Disney cartoon…even with how kitschy the gift shop was. Welcome to Wine country, I guess?  

This sexy yet sweet Charlotte Russe lace up front romper was perfect for the day trip to Napa. I  have been so delighted by Charlotte Russe's new product as of late and want to wear this gorgeous lacy romper every weekend now!

Coachella Photo Diary


“You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”


Coachella was such a magical experience. The positivity that radiates through my friends is beyond me. I felt so lucky to have a group of people around me that would talk about positivity, emotions, love, and theoretical thoughts on life. And even when tragedy struck, they knew how to smile and dance on. We experienced an gigantic loss at Coachella this year when one of the nicest boys I knew, left us, for the time being. His life was taken early and the effects, both good and bad, will continue to be with us until our time comes to leave. My friend Jannik was a gem. He was an angel already and will now be one forever. I wish I could describe to you is aura. He radiated positivity and welcomed new friends with open arms. When I reflect, I think about how college was a very weird time for me, where I was never comfortable opening up to people, or letting anyone in. I could barely talk to anyone without feeling incredibly withdrawn. I had a hard time going out. But every time my friends Jannik and Tom would have people over, I remember acting like a complete goofball and never felt ashamed of my dance moves or silly for acting like an idiot. My fond memories of Boulder lie within these times. Feeling like I could open up to someone in whatever way provided me with feelings of love for the city I lived it. I will never forget this precious boy. Now Jannik watches over us, guiding us, showing us how to boogie on. Sorry for getting too personal here, I am not exactly sure it's appropriate but the practice of writing makes me feel like I can help his story live on, without it being a tragic one. I want the words that follow him for the rest of his life to be whole heartedly positive ones, filled with love. Because that's what he was all about.

Sprinkles With a Side of Diamonds Please

Awhile ago I really thought about pranking everyone on April Fools Day with an engagement post, but Rob didn't think that would be very funny. But...it would have been such an awesome way to tell you about these beautiful rings from Anjolee! Another time. Another time. We'll just have to make due with cupcakes and diamonds, I guess. Life is so hard. Maybe I am just in a pranking mood today. We sent a fellow startup an envelope of glitter and are currently in the process of instacarting them Smirnoff Ices. Oh Friday in San Francisco, how I love thee! So why not get on with your bad self and check out Anjolee's beautiful diamonds? Then pin away your dream wedding, because like I said, it's Friday and it's time to let loose!

HSKT - Sylvan Esso

Cotton On sweater, Dange Dover mini tote, studded Rebecca Minkoff Loafers, Red Lips and Blonde Hair! Edgy Boho Style on Bryn Newman of Stone Fox Style
A giant chunky sweater in the Spring? What? I know. Welcome to SF where it's sweater weather year round. Plus these photos are a bit old, as you can probably tell from my blonde locks! Oh how I miss them. So...I just returned from Coachella the other day and have been jamming out to some new tunes and I wanted to feature one song that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. This catchy tune by Sylvan Esso had us dancing for hours after the set and we played HSKT (head shoulders knees and toes) almost every day before we headed out to the festival! Such fun. Hope you enjoy it!

Let The Sunshine

What's better than sunshine? Nothing. Well maybe this AYK Versa Clutch. "AYK is a hand-dyed leather goods company where modern classics are made personal with a one-of-a-kind gradient treatment." The designer, Angie Kim, has delighted me with the beautiful craftsmanship of the pieces in her collection. AYK is truly inspiring me to #LIVETHECRAFT. Driving me to begin creating jewelry, art, and so much more once again. And now let the warm and fuzzy feelings commence while you listen to this song about sunshine.

Festival Style Tips with LuLu's: Mo Rompers Mo Problems

Top Knot for Festival Season, long velvet burnout kimono, matching short suit, mink pink.
I am having a hard time just picking one song to share. I love both of these artists so much, so I had to share both. Milky Chance won my heart over a couple of years ago and my boyfriend turned me on to Hot Natured. Both just give me this giddy feeling of happiness when I listen to their music! See below for my festival style advice and don't forget to check out the LuLu's Festival Essentials Shop!

TIP THREE: STAY AWAY FROM ROMPERS
This is the most important rule. I know rompers are adorable, I mean look at this RVCA romper, this baby blue off the shoulder number (I NEED), and finally this JOA romper with a touch of ruffles. How could you resist? Well let me tell you.
Why: Portable bathrooms. Yes, porta potties. Imagine having to maneuver your way out of a romper, in the tiny confines of a neon sea foam green container of smells. There are just some things germex can't take care of. BUT this Mink Pink two-piece short suit set is the solution! Or any matching separates for that matter. The same look, yet more convenient. 
Trend Alert: We all know that the half up top knot is happening. And I for one, love it. But when I discovered these hair charms the other day, I couldn't look back. They'll be so perfect to spice up your hair do for the festival. Especially if you're like me and you never know what to do with your hair.  Or you could try a bun crown, what do you think of these?
