Stacker Style: Overalls (Sometimes a Fashion-No)

pancakeSTACKER Blog x Overalls

Sometimes, you wear overalls and you look pretty cool. Other times, you wear overalls and you look like this. HA. I debated whether or not these photos would make it up on the blog, because I wasn't sure if I wanted y'all to see my fashion flub. But, because I don't take myself too seriously and you shouldn't either, I said why the hell not. Sometimes we wear things and we feel really good. Other times, we wear things and we have a really long w-t-f moment. This is my moment. On to the next!

Food Friday: Four Favorite Foodie Spots in San Mateo

pancakeSTACKER Blog x Food Friday: San Mateo
Alright, you guys. Here's the scoop. I recently partnered with HP, who is currently on tour with Meghan Trainor (you know her from her catchy "All About the Bass" hit), to #BendTheRules bring you a different kind of Food Friday stack today. Taking inspiration from their HP x360's four modes (laptop, tablet, tent and stand), they've asked me to interpret the number four in any way I'd like. What a better way to do so than with a super stacked Food Friday post, right? (Four times the noms, y'all!)

You know that I'm always sharing what I eat with you over on Instagram, but not all the places I dine at are SF-based. Take for instance, last week's trip to Oakland. Thought I'd flip the script once again and take you to the other side of town. Having grown up in the Peninsula, I have more than a couple of favorite places that I like to give my money to on the regular. And because I love them, I thought you just might, too. So, if you find yourself in San Mateo, here are four foodie spots you've just got to visit.

Stacker Style: Zoo Party

pancakeSTACKER Blog x Distressed Denim x Zara Leopard Booties x Nordstrom Furry Vest

I like to think of this outfit as an intersection of my animal pals. I've got my faux-leather reptile-embossed sleeves, leopard-print booties, and a furry, Zebra (or Panda?)-colored faux-fur vest. It's like a trip to the zoo, but on my body. (That was kind of a weird sentence, no?) It wasn't planned; I just mixed all the things I've been wearing on rotating and decided to wear them all at once. But, the best outfits often come together unplanned. Pretty cool when it just works out like that. Remind me to plan-less more often. (I'll cross my fingers it turns out as hip as this.)

Stacker Style: Whoop! There It Is

pancakeSTACKER Blog x Madewell Saucony x Aeropostale

I'm taking it back to the old school, 'cause I'm an old fool, who's so cool... with these Saucony kicks and the flannel around the waist. I scooped up these sneakers because I remember having a couple pairs back in middle school. They were so, so incredibly comfortable that I figured I'd treat my feet and bring these babies back. Now, what color for my next pair?

Food Friday: Hopscotch Oakland

Hopscotch 1915 San Pablo Ave. Oakland, CA 94612
3/5 Stacks 
pancakeSTACKER Blog x Hopscotch Oakland

Let me start off this post by saying, I never go to Oakland. I really, really want to make more of an effort to get out there and enjoy the sunshine, but I'm like a lost puppy when I get there and just have no idea where to go. So, I make it out there about once a year (yikes) and it's usually for their Eat Real Fest at Jack London Square. Well, I'm happy to say I made it out early this year (cue claps and cheers) for none other than Oakland Restaurant Week. I asked my savvy Easy Bay friends where I should go and everyone said Hopscotch was well worth the hype. After taking a gander at their menu and seeing Kimchee Fried Rice and Shoyu Eggs with Pork Belly, I was sold. So, I put on my Oakland sweatshirt (which is probably the most ironic thing I own by the way - 1. because I bought it at UO, of all places and 2. I live in the most non-hip neighborhood in SF) and made a trip of it.

Stacker Style: #Momentsofchic with Piperlime

pancakeSTACKER Blog x Piperlime x Finders Keepers x #Momentsofchic

Every once in a while, when I'm not galavanting in sneaks or boots, I like to put on a pair of heels. And with that, comes the opportunity to slip on a pretty dress or bold skirt - cue this Finders Keepers skirt from Piperlime. When it comes to skirts, I'm typically more of a midi / maxi gal. I get a little shy showing off my stems, so I prefer keeping it conservative. But, every now and then you can't help but make a statement and show a little leg. I initially tried to wear this bad boy with sneakers (yes, I really did try very hard),  but none of my sneakers would do it justice and I realized only a pair of heels would. Doesn't mean I won't try again, though. Stay tuned on that - we'll see if I can make it happen.
