I really wanted to share Jamie xx's new album with you. So please excuse the poorly thought out post you're about to encounter. I saw him at Coachella and it was one of the best shows I've seen in my entire life and sometimes I really can't help but reminisce i.e. all of the photos + videos from this post. When you have a moment, take an hour out of your day to relax, read a book, flip through magazines, and turn on your surround sound stereo with this album on. Don't forget a nice cup of coffee and sit back to enjoy the tunes. OR listen to it at work. Whatever floats your boat. One of my favorite things to do with my boyfriend is cook dinner with music on, I can't wait to find a fun new recipe for this week and listen to In Colour by Jamie xx again. Now, unlucky for me, his shows in SF are completely sold out! Take a listen and let me know what you think. I am just happy an artist released a new album after gaining more fandom, and didn't sell our their original sound.

I think I have already talked about Summer in San Francisco and how it's very confusing. Or at least you've heard the quote, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." So you can understand my delight in wearing cozy sweaters and constantly feeling like it's fall, but you can probably also understand how much I long for summer weather. Luckily for me, at least I get to wear giant shearling jackets and bad ass jumpsuits year round...so while my friends in Florida and New York are sweating their makeup off, I am biking in bliss to the office. In honor of the confusing fall-esque weather, I have put together a "Falling For Fall" playlist and a few selects to recreate this look and rock it at Outside Lands (trust me, you'll need to bring layers + dress warm) check it out below!

What happens when four fashion influencers watch an inspiring video that challenges them to bend the rules? We bring the boutique to the street, that’s what.
Coming from a family that is a little bit obsessed with art, hunting for deals, and creating, the HP Bend The Rules video inspired me to host a pop-up, on my sidewalk in San Francisco. Back in Florida, living in a gated community meant we weren’t allowed to have garage sales; the homeowners associations were very strict. My mom was barely allowed to hang a swing in our yard! I loved the town I grew up in but I often felt suffocated and as if my creativity was constantly being suppressed. I would often come home from school, head right upstairs to my mom’s art studio, and play music and paint. It was really cool seeing the watercolor animation in the video, it brought back a lot of memories of painting and how mesmerizing it was to watch watercolors take life and turn into something you’d never imagine! As I was going through storage looking for pieces to incorporate in our Street Boutique, I found one of my old paintings, it looks like something that totally would have been in the video!
After finding enough pieces to sell, I wanted to hit the ground running. I emailed my favorite SF bloggers and we all came up with a plan. Donuts and mimosas were first on the checklist, but for me, as a graphic designer, the first thing I was excited to create was the invitation. The video had elements of watercolor and a brush font that inspired me to use the same textures on my invitation. The Dalmatian print was a way for me to bring an element of playfulness that resonated with the HP video that inspired me and all of the bloggers’ personal style.HP x360 computer at the sale was godsend! It was a great way for us to keep track of payments and which blogger sold what. We could also give attendees inspiration on how to wear the item by showing them how we styled the pieces on our blogs!
Our sale was a massive success! We definitely brought the boutique to the street for one of the most unique sales San Francisco has ever seen. People were blown away and kept asking us if we were models and why we had such cute clothes. But they don’t know the pain of having so many clothes your closet rips out of the wall (yes that seriously happened to me).
Nothing is better than coming together when you’re inspired. Working with these girls has helped us build a close relationship where we want to collaborate on a regular basis. Who knows, we might have a girl band on our hands…because the first photo in this post definitely looks like our album cover. What are you waiting for? Check out the video that inspired us below!

After much debate and making my boyfriend help me choose an outfit for the poshmark party last night, I went with this lace Charlotte Russe dress and a faux leather vest from Missguided. I think I tried on 10 outfits before my boyfriend said, "Can we stop playing this game." Poor fella. In the end I absolutely adored this look. It was girly with a touch of edginess....because if it's too much lace, it just doesn't feel like me! I had such a blast hosting my first ever poshparty and I am so thankful to everyone who attended. xoxo.

As San Francisco summer swallows us in its fog, I long for my days in the Florida sun. The gray weather has me curled up in cozy sweaters and boyfriend jeans nearly everyday. So I'm bringing it back to my beach days with my accessories. The Chinese Laundry macrame slip on sneakers are perfect for summer! And my new Rebecca Minkoff straw macrame bag is my go-to summer accessory! Both of these paired with effortlessly cool overalls make for a easy and cute (wannabe) summer look. Now if only SF could bring back the sun it was giving us in February!
