THREADS:: Black and Roses

Here's the latest threads feature -- I love wearing black and this is one of my favorite outfits. The rose print skirt stands out so it was perfect to pair a black top and jacket with. The skirt has two front slits which shows some leg and makes it easier to walk. See more of this look below...

Online Shopping

So... I love shopping, especially online shopping. What girl doesn't? There's so much excitement that comes from packages arriving at your doorstep.

I recently ordered my first item off of GILT - a pair of House of Harlow sunglasses for only $45!
I love my new sunglasses, they came really quickly and were packaged really well.

THREADS:: Graphic Printed Cut-Out Maxi

Wearing: Topshop dress, Member's Only vegan leather jacket, Zara heels, Michael Kors purse.

Can I just say, how in love with this maxi dress I am? It's got a really fun print that can be worn in any season. There's two front paneled slits that make it easy for walking and show just a hint of leg :) The front cut-out shows just a touch of skin and doesn't give it all away. I've paired it with my favorite vegan leather jacket and structured handbag. I kept it simple with nude single sole heels.

One of my favorite cities to visit is San Francisco -- there's so much to do and so much to EAT! :) Here's a breakdown of my eating adventures from my recent trip in the city. (This nighttime city photo was taken at the top of twin peaks.)
