Tasty Tuesday

I'm lucky enough to have food on my plate everyday and a plethora of restaurants to choose from any time I dine out. It's never something that crosses my mind twice - where the next meal is coming from, or if I'll even have enough to eat. But, not everyone is that lucky. Did you know that in California alone, more than 1 in 4 children don't know where their next meal will come from? Did you know that 23.1% of children in California live in poverty? In San Francisco alone, 37% of demand for food assistance is unmet. Those are some pretty startling facts, my friends.

This year, I'm partnering with No Kid Hungry to raise awareness about their 9th annual Taste of the Nation event here in San Francisco, which takes place this Thursday, March 24th at the City View at the Metreon. The No Kid Hungry campaign aims to end child hunger in America by ensuring that children get the food they need, each and every day. Taste of the Nation brings together the city's top restaurants, wineries, breweries and more to help donate their time and culinary skills to help raise proceeds to fight childhood hunger. All proceeds from ticket purchases go straight to the beneficiaries who help bring food to locals in need.

Stacker Style: Fuzzy Stripes

Didn't I tell you that I live in these pants? I really do. Turns out, my love for classics and basics still remains true, too. You've probably noticed by now, but my style is really very simple - I'm not much for all the bells and whistles. Just give me the basics and I'll find my way into making them mine. More often than not, that means me rocking red as an accent color - whether it's my lips (and it usually is), or my favorite coral bucket with flats to match, it's there (just look for it). Red is just one of those colors that makes an outfit pop like none other, and I can't help but love it.

Stacker Style: Green Being

I don't know that I've loved a series of photos as much as these - they're so clean and effortless. I give mad props to JennyMay for that. For this look, I pieced together some old faves with some new ones. The draped jacket has been a nice addition to my closet - I must have about six green coats now, but when you like something, you like something. I paired it with a button up camo / leopard / spotted? print blouse I've had in my closet for years now and my favorite pants ever. (They're so comfy, you guys!) As for accessories, I recently received this leather backpack from J.Jill and I swear I get compliments on it, every time I wear it out. It's so classic - I can't wait until the leather softens and it has some wear to it. Added some sunnies and mules to finish off the look and voila!

Stacker Style: Stay Gold

Sometimes, it's awesome to try something new. So on this day, I met up with Fabio. whose work I've been a fan of for some time, and we did a quick shoot as the sun was setting. I've never experimented with nighttime shots, but Fabio's practically a pro in them, so I knew I was in good hands. I decided to sport my new Benny Gold x Miller High Life collab tee paired with some comfy (and super duper baggy) boyfriend jeans and some heels to dress it all up. For those who may not be familiar, Benny Gold is a local SF-based designer who specializes in menswear. He's got some pretty cool tees, the cutest kids ever, and a famous little pup named Levi. A few weeks ago, Benny and Miller threw a little celebration party for the launch of their collab - if you haven't yet seen the cans, scroll below and take a peek. I was pretty stoked to get my hands on one of their tees, which encompasses the two brands' mantras, "Stay Gold," and "Live the High Life." If you ask me, I think Fabio did a great job in encompassing that feeling.

Stacker Style: Can I Wear Birks with That?

More often than not, I find myself asking how I can make my outfit comfier without sacrificing style. Sometimes it gets tricky. I end up going through checkpoints of: "Can I really wear that oversized sweater without looking like I just rolled out of bed," or "Hmm.. Does this look okay with flats," or even, "Does this make me look homeless chic, or just homeless?" Really. This outfit is a perfect example of how I have managed to balance the art of style and comfort. I originally planned to wear these chic mules with this look (made it look very put together), but right before heading out the door I asked myself (and Jenny), "Can I wear Birks with this?" We both mutually agreed that Birks were just fine and my feet were that much more happier for it. Ultimately, the trick to getting away with anything is just putting on some red lipstick (and dry shampoo). You can quote me on that.
