Summer Sweater







H&M Sweater // J. Crew Tote (similar) // Dolce Vita Bootie (different color) // Rockstar Skinnies

Until I moved to San Francisco last year the words “summer” and “sweater” were never used in the same sentence, at least not out of my mouth!  Once the sun starts going down and the wind starts picking up, it’s time to find something warm to throw on your body.  All of my sweaters looked more like I’m transitioning into fall and not so much “summer” so I’ve had to change around my wardrobe.  This multicolored top is my favorite summer sweater at the moment and it’s less than $20!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s that time again… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It is the perfect time to pick up those fall favorites at a major discount.  Or if you’re like me, purchase a bunch of things you really don’t need but must have like this adorable gold dotted Kate Spade travel mug and the 17 -Month Agenda.  I’m a sucker for writing things down, even in this iPhone only age.  You’re probably thinking “….toothpaste?” This Marvis toothpaste is such a luxury (discovered it last year via Birchbox) and I feel much less ridiculous purchasing at over 30% off!

If you already have a Nordstrom card then go right ahead and take advantage of the Cardmember Early Access!  If not, check back to see what’s available on July 17th for all shoppers.

Kimono Love



A_000042Nude Flats // Umgee Floral Kimono // Rockstar Skinnies

Oh, the kimono. I’m not sure if it’s San Francisco’s wonky weather or the ease of just throwing on a tank and a cute kimono and you look half way put together but I am obsessed with them. Add some tassels or some bright pom poms to the edges and we are good to go! I save my thicker ones for chilly nights and use the lightweight ones for day time. The best thing about them, for all of you lucky ladies who are still enjoying pool weather, is they make sure perfect cover ups as well.

SF Spotlight: ClassPass

ClassPass is a monthly membership to great quality boutique fitness classes in your city. There are literally thousands of classes available to ClassPass members, including cycling, outdoor bootcamps, barre, pilates, yoga, strength training, dance, martial arts and more.

For $99 a month, ClassPass members get unlimited classes to studios in the ClassPass network. You can take as many classes per month as you’d like but only visit the same studio up to 3 times per monthly membership cycle. Super busy one month?  You’re able to put your membership on hold for a $19 fee and still get to take one class which I am actually doing at the moment.  It has been a busy last few weeks!

I’ve been a ClassPass member for 9 months now. In 9 months, I’ve tried so many different barre classes which have increased my flexibility and confidence. I’ve conquered several Barry’s Bootcamp classes which I’ve been wanting to try for years but have been too scared of committing to the price of a class and the intensity. I’ve gotten to know San Francisco much better since I’ve tried many classes in different parts of the city that I normally wouldn’t frequent. I’ve been on a regular workout routine since I want to get my money’s worth out of my membership.

Did I mention they have an amazing app as well?  Yes, book classes with ease via your smartphone!

My absolute favorite studios in San Francisco:


Am I buff yet? Nope.

Do I feel better about myself and my abilities? Absolutely.

I cannot say enough good things about the quality of classes available, their customer service and the value of ClassPass.
