Stacker Style: DVF Kissed My Cheek

pancakestacker blog x dvf x levis x #dvfstudioxlevis #dvfstudioxsanfrancisco

An alternate name for this blog post was "Where's Waldo," which is coincidentally what I was for Halloween, thanks to this stunner of a sweater. But, I thought "DVF Kissed My Cheek" was more appropriate, because, well, it happened. You've already heard me preach on how much I was feeling myself after the whirlwind of a night that was the #DVFStudioxLevi event, but like I said, I have a vault of photos and it's time to share them all.

After the jump, read up on my evening out with DVF, catch photos from the event, plus more shots of my full look!

Friendsgiving with DoorDash

pancakestacker blog x doordash friendsgiving thanksgiving sam talbott

Thanksgiving is in two days, you guys. Two days! Is it just me, or did this year totally zoom by? I honestly can't believe it's nearly December. Every year, around this time, my friends and I host a Friendsgiving potluck, where we gather 'round and stuff ourselves silly with amazingly delicious food and drinks. (Think lumpia, ribs, pies galore, cider, sweet potato mash and more... mmmmm.) Because we lost track of time and forgot to plan, this will be our first year out of the last several that we won't be having one. (Insert sad face, here.) Luckily, we also host an annual Friendsmas gathering, so not all is lost. Even better, Bay Area-based restaurant delivery service, DoorDash recently saved a seat at the table for me at their's, so I didn't have to totally miss out on the Friendsgiving tradition. Aside from chowing down alongside some of my blogging pals,  I also walked away with some fresh ideas for how to "wow" guests at my next gathering. Anyone out there hosting people this year and could use some extra tips, too? Well, my friends, you're going to want to read more after the jump.

Stacker Style: Red-y to Ruffle

I've come to acknowledge that my favorite color might just be red. I love a red lip, a red statement bag, and now, this red dress. I'm often found wearing the basics - black, white, navy - but the more I put this color on, the more I feel good and alive, confident, and happy. Can you tell? How's that for feeling like a million bucks?

Food Friday: Bluestem Brasserie's New Brunch Menu

Bluestem Brasserie 1 Yerba Buena Lane

Bluestem Brasserie recently welcomed Trevor Ogden into their kitchen as their new Executive Chef. Chef Trevor hails from Park Tavern and brings with him over 15 years of experience, as well as a new weekend brunch menu, which I got to experience for the first time just this past Saturday. It should be no surprise that I couldn't pass up a brunch tasting at Bluestem. I frequent the restaurant often for happy hour and anytime I have a hankering for my favorite cake in the city.  I was really excited to try Chef's take on brunch, because it's truly my favorite meal. So what was on the menu? See more after the jump.

Stacker Style: Austin City Limits 2017, Day Three

pancakestacker blog x austin texas x austin city limits 2017

What I didn't tell you about my Austin City Limits adventure is that the day before my trip, I got attacked by a crazy mosquito. It bit my forehead six times and my arms about another six to eight more times. Yes, it did look like I got hit in the face. And then, just as my face and arm swelling started to go down... I got bit by MORE mosquitoes on my legs when I got to Austin. It was sad and funny all at the same time. I was swollen, it was humid and hot, and I got no relief. Why am I telling you this? Because on day three of ACL, the sun came out in full force and it was almost miserable. My bites were more swollen than ever thanks to the heat, and if you look really, really closely... you can see a few in these photos. Luckily, Juice Land saved my soul, and the Gorillaz and Zhu met my musical expectations. Now, time to start saving and planning for Austin, year four.

Stacker Style: Austin City Limits 2017, Day Two

pancakestacker blog x austin texas x austin city limits 2017

I found these pants at a random shop in the mall and they cost me less than $20. Aside from being insanely affordable, they also happened to be the most comfortable pants I own. Hyperbole? Nope - they're really that comfortable. Maybe it's because they were loose and free flowing and allowed me to eat queso and bbq to my heart (and stomach's) content. Whatever the case, day two's festival fit was my favorite of the whole weekend. It also helped that I had a matching bag and some dope platform sandals to give me an inch or two above the concert crowd. Aside from that, I was having a really good hair day, so there's that.

Stacker Style: Austin City Limits 2017, Day One

pancakestacker blog x austin texas x austin city limits 2017

I'm finally getting around to this ole thing and let me tell you - the photo vault is fully and plenty. So, it's time to start churning these babies out. Starting with this one. A little over a month ago, your girl took a trip to her favorite city in the country, Austin, Texas. It was my third visit to the city and my third Austin City Limits in the books. This year's lineup was pretty rad - Zhu, Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Portugal. The Man, and more! Truth be told, I'd seen most of the performer's on this year's bill. But, I was really excited to finally see the Gorillaz and the xx, and I was even more excited to catch Zhu and the Peppers again. The xx closed day one and they were my favorite set of the whole weekend - so magical to see them perform live!
