Stacker Style: Longer Lengths

The sun has started poking its rays out in San Francisco, meaning that tee shirt weather is almost upon us. Of course, if you're lived in this city for as long as I have, you know that a little heat is not enough reason to forgo the layers. So, warm as I am, my jacket still comes with me. I got this one this past holiday season simply because I loved the statement faux-fur stole attachment adorned upon the jacket. It's basically a scarf and jacket in one. You've seen this jean and OTK boot combo many a time (here and here last), but when something works, why not keep at it? I recently received this tee and wear it everywhere, all the time. It's soft, sheer, and has that high-low detail that makes it more than just a tee. Because its neckline is on the lower side, I typically pair it with a lace bralette for an added touch. And when I say I'm wearing this tee everywhere I mean it. You can catch me in it when I'm running errands and when I'm heading out for a night on the town. It's the perfect work and play tee.

Food Friday: Nico

Nico 3228 Sacramento Street

San Francisco is envied for more reasons than one. Despite its occasional Karl the Fog days and higher than average rental market rates, everyone wants a little piece of the city by the bay. One of my favorite reasons for living in this city is being able to experience all of the magical restaurants that pop up around town. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to dine at Pacific Height's Michelin-rated, Nico. Nico quietly sits on Sacramento Street and you can easily walk by it's simple exterior not knowing about the hidden gem you're about to pass by. But, if you're in the know (and you usually are if you're a true San Franciscan foodie), you know that Nico is a place you don't want to pass up.

Food Friday: Hog and Rocks

Hog and Rocks 3431 19th Street 
5/5 Stacks

I don't know if I've officially gone on the record about this, but if not, here it is - brunch is my favorite meal of the day. Don't get me wrong, I love a good dinner, but there's nothing like a good brunch in my humble opinion. So, when the Hog and Rocks team invited me to try their brunch menu one lovely Saturday afternoon, there was just no way I could say no. So, I didn't.

Stacker Style: Beanie Baby

We're a couple months into the new year, but everyday's a great time to start new, right? Earlier this year I decided it was time for a new pair of frames, because new year, new me, duh. No, but really, I hadn't changed up my frames in a while (2013, maybe?) and I thought 2016 was a good time to switch it up. Most of the time, you will find me in my contacts, but during the evenings and days after a long one, my eyes cry for glasses. I recently found out about JINS Eyewear's 15 minute in and out refraction service provided by 20/20 NOW, so I decided to give it a whirl and update my eyeglass prescription. I appreciated the fast and easy experience and really enjoyed that JINS was just a short walk away from Union Square and downtown SF. Honestly, the hardest (and longest) part about the whole experience was picking out my frames because JINS has more frames than you can imagine. After sifting through the grand selection of frames, I finally settled on these hip clear frames. The best part about the whole JINS experience is that you can settled on a pair and pick them up in 30 minutes or less! So, you're looking at an hour (or two, if you're like me and need forever and a day to pick out that perfect pair of new frames) in and out - from getting your eyes checked to putting your fresh frames on your face. So far, I've gotten a lot of love for my new lenses. And, I've got to say, it was nice stepping out of my love affair with tortoise shell frames. Special thanks to JINS for making everything so quick and easy.

Stacker Style: Cool Kid

Have you guys ever read that one quote that goes something like, "I thought that having a leather jacket would change my life and I was literally 100% totally right"? Well, that's pretty much how this little lady has felt since adding a true black leather jacket to her closet. There are always those staple items that everyone talks about - the power pump, the camel trench, the crisp white button-up, the leather jacket... Now that I'm getting even older (think late 20's, you guys, which is nutty when you think about how old I was when I started this blog), I've been more into investment pieces. Less into fast fashion, except when it comes to festival season and those little one-off's here and there, and more into good quality items. I've got to say that since this leather jacket made its way into my arms, my closet has felt so much more complete. I wear it all the time, everywhere, because it's classic and literally goes with everything! Do you guys have a clothing item that changed the game of your closet? I know I can't be the only one.
