Friday Buy Day July 8 2016

We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July Holiday!  We spent the weekend split between wine tasting in Wine Country and glamping in Santa Barbara, and we are still recovering from our over-indulgences in food and drink...

July is one of the best times of year for shopping, and the sales going on right now are awesome.  This week we are bringing you a mix of classic staples, Summer favorites and even a more"Fall" feeling jacket (we do live in San Francisco after all)...all on Sale!

First up, this darling pair of gladiator style sandals.  Simple, with clean and unfussy straps, these sandals offer the perfect amount of edge without trying too hard.  They come in nude and black and are now only $75 (from $150).  They look great with a flirty skirt, or denim shorts and are stylish enough to pair with ankle length denim and an off-the-shoulder blouse for date night.

A smocked waist, exposed shoulder and embroidered hemline make this dress your perfect Summer frock.  Pair it with the sandals above and grab your cropped leather jacket for an ensemble that will take you from Brunch to a BBQ in style (P.S. it is $130 with all sizes left, for now)

Claire V is one of our go-to handbag brands, particularly for the oversized clutch...and we love this linen version in a powder blue.  Crisp, classic and roomy enough for sunglasses, lipstick and your keys, this clutch has timeless appeal and an easy price tag (on sale for $82 from $165).

This is my favorite type of blouse...slightly romantic, a bit sexy and interesting without being overly noticeable (so you can wear it many times, styled in different ways).  I love the pleated silk, the tassel tie detail and the ruffled neckline...and the front is just as ethereal and breezy as the back.  Priced 40% off with all sizes left, this is a blouse you will wear now with denim shorts and gladiator sandals, and in the Fall layered under a tweed jacket with booties.


Citizens of Humanity denim are a great fit for a lot of people, and if you are one of them...these Avedon skinny jeans are the perfect "cropped" ankle length, have a good amount of stretch for a snug yet comfortable fit and the wash will take you from Summer right into Fall.  At $138 with all sizes left, your cost per wear will be well worth it. 

I know it's Summer in a lot of places, but it is overcast and cold in San Francisco (sigh) so this textured weave IRO Jacket is for all of you.  A leather belt, roomy bracelet sleeves and an open collar make this jacket the perfect topper to skinny jeans and sneakers or try it with leather leggings and boots in the Fall.  It is 60%OFF making it almost impossible not to purchase !

Okay, now back to clothing for the rest of the Country who get to enjoy sunshine in summertime. Our last Friday Buy Day pick is this darling gingham peplum blouse . Try it with white denim and ankle-tie sandals for a clean and classic look.  Or I'd pair it with distressed denim shorts and white Superga high-tops for a more tomboy take.  In the Fall, I love this with a black pencil skirt and leopard pumps for Back-to-School night, or try it with a fitted blazer, dark denim and smoking slippers. On sale for $79 with an ADDITIONAL 40% off using code SALETIME, buy your size today before it is gone.

Hope you enjoyed our favorite sale pick for this week.  Happy Friday.  Happy Weekend.  Happy Shopping.



Friday Buy Day (on Monday)

Summer is finally here and we are bringing you our favorite sale picks from around the web to kick off your leg-baring days ahead.


First up, this sexy dress by for Love and Lemons.  Nude lining peaks through the beautiful lace cut-outs and the flared sleeves are a perfect complement to the deep-v.  If you are a little nervous about the low neckline, try wearing this with a delicate lace bralette in a similar ivory color that provides a little extra coverage without taking away from the feminine playfulness of this beautiful dress.  Now on sale for 40% off the original price, this sexy dress can be worn with a leather jacket and suede cut-out heels for a night out, or with ankle-wrapped sandals and a top knot for a birthday brunch.

We absolutely love these bralettes from Urban Outfitters!   With a scalloped neckline in the front and a sheer lace back they are perfect for layering under a racer-back tank or peaking out of a low cut dress when you want a little extra coverage (see above).  They come in a variety of colors and are now on sale for $20!  Stock up and thank us later...

There isn't too much else to say about these sandals except that you NEED them in your closet.  Part espadrille, part gladiator they are the perfect Summer accomplice to cropped jeans, flirty skirts, floaty cover-ups and off the shoulder dresses.  At under $130, the price is hard to beat for a pair of shoes that should forever replace those flip-flops you have (unless you are getting a pedicure of course).

There are few outfits we love more than an embroidered, slinky blouse with ripped jeans and high-heels.  There is something so simple, yet so sexy about such an effortlessly chic look.  This tunic is divine.  The tassel trim, the gathered wrists, and the intricate embroidery make it a necessary addition to your closet.  Pair it with destroyed denim and suede cut-out heels, or try it tucked into flared denim with stacked wedges.  This blouse is the definition of bohemian elegance.

The perfect Summer denim is here...distressed at the knee and frayed at the hem, these Joe's Jeans will take you from sneakers to stilettos.  With all sizes left and hovering on sale around $130, act fast and scoop up your size of this stylish Summer staple!

And you know Summer is on our minds when we start blogging about swimwear.  This crochet black one-piece is sleek and chic.  With a plunging neckline and open back it channels classic glamour and modern lines...not to mention it hides any tummy while still looking utterly sexy.

And lastly, this cover-up.  Cover-ups are kinda like sneakers...we really (really) love them and we are constantly on the hunt for some new additions to our collections.  But, much like sneakers, they can get really pricey...and so it is even more thrilling to fall in love with one that is super reasonable priced (and by super, we're talking $54!!!).  This breezy caftan is effortless, chic and belongs in your suitcase for your next sunny getaway.


We hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day...Today is the first official day of Summer and so it feels fitting that we are bringing you our favorite sale/value picks from around the web with sunshine on our minds!


Friday Buy Day 4.15.16

Hey party people it is Friday and we are so excited for a warm weekend here in SF (a scorcher in Palm Desert for sure)!  As usual, we have scoured the internet for the best finds at the best are our top picks this week:

Because it is definitely beginning to feel like Spring around here, we had to include a chic cover up.   This one from Eberjey is barely $100 and is flattering on all shapes and sizes!  A cotton blend with beautiful lacey draped sleeves and intricate cut-outs this bathing suit topper is feminine and chic.  

These sandals make me happy just looking at them.  The bright colors, the pom-pom fringe and the wrap around ankle are spot-on trend with zero guilt for indulging ($89).  The perfect accessory for a simple white dress, denim on denim or the cover-up above.  

Coated raspberry skinny jeans with moto-inspired zippers?  Yes, please.  Level 99 treated denim are sure to please your inner vixen and your bank account (on sale for under $100 with all sizes left except 27...).  Pair these during the day with black gladiator sandals and a draped tee shirt.  For a night out, try them with a racer-back tank, black blazer and heels.  They'll also look great come Fall with a chunky knit sweater and high-tops.

Simple, sexy, sophisticated. We love the draped neckline (add a black bralette for more coverage), the length (this dress is probably best on us girls who are under 5''s a shorty), and the 3/4 sleeve to show off a cool cuff or two.  Add an ankle-wrapped heel and a pink pout and be on your way.

This oversized Vince pullover is a great addition to your favorite basics.  Pair it with ripped denim and sandals for a chic and casual look.  Or wear it over leather leggings with sneakers for a plane flight.  Flattering on all body types and a heatherred cream color that goes with virtually everything, this pullover is now 40% off with all sizes left.

If you're in the market for a new swimsuit, this Mara Hoffman one is amazing.  The keyhole cut is sexy while the side-vents are high enough to cover any "love-handles" that might be lingering around your mid-section(:  Throw on a pair of wide leg linen pants and a straw hat and you will surely be the chicest guest at the pool.


Lastly, we'd be remiss if we didn't include a hat during the beginning of this festival weekend(:  This classic one by Hat Attack is now more than 50% off with a timeless color combination of grey and black.  Protect your beautiful face in style.


We hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day...whether you are at Coachella, here in San Francisco or elsewhere we hope your plans include enjoying a cocktail 9or cocktail) and some sunshine.


Friday Buy Day 2.5.16

This is that funny time of year in Fashion when it is still chilly out (especially for you East Coasters) but Spring is around the corner.  This week's Friday Buy Day covers all the bases with some cold weather staples and some pieces that will definitely get you excited for Spring.

First up, this chic puffer by Rebecca Minkoff.  Sporty enough to wear with your "active wear" while stylish enough to layer over a cashmere sweater with a scarf, jeans and boots.  I love the bracelet length sleeves allowing your layers to peek through and the glossy finish adds polish to an otherwise casual jacket.

Next up, this chic clutch by Claire Vivier.  Black and blue have long since been a favorite color combination of ours and this bag nails it with the suede body and the patent leather pinstripe.  

These booties are divine.  There are plenty of options when it comes to booties but it is really hard to find a perfect pair.  These check all the boxes.  The fold-over cuff, a slightly slouchy style and the 3 inch heel height allows you to wear these all day and into the night.  The suede is a perfect transitional material to take you from Winter into Spring.  Wear them now with ankle length denim and a chunky knit, or pair them with a flirty sundress or jean shorts come Spring.  On Sale for $168 with almost all sizes left, these booties are a must-have,

This navy and white printed wrap dress is feminine, flirty and utterly wearable (keep in mind the model is 5'10 so it's a great length for "most" of us).  Love the cap sleeves and the wrap waist is super flattering, I picture this dress with gladiator sandals and a woven hat for a day of wine-tasting, or amped up a bit with the booties above and a black moto-inspired leather jacket to watch a concert. If you're worried the v is too low, layer it over a lace bralette for added coverage.


Chunky ribbed knit.  Off the shoulder.  Vented hem.  Charcoal grey wool and cashmere blend (and on sale, of course).  Done.

The Vince Shootie: Part Sandal, Part Bootie.  Made of the most versatile taupe suede, this shoe can be worn with ripped denim and a slouchy tee just as easily as it can be worn with a flirty skirt and knit tank.  On sale with almost all sizes left, this will be your go-to sandal from now until...

And lastly, the flyaway sweater by Mara Hoffman.  Cream cotton, slightly frayed edges and an open back make this edgy outerwear perfect for layering over your favorite sports bra on your way to Pilates, or for layering over a longer tank with skinny jeans and high-tops.  Washable, wearable and 60% off the original price with all sizes left (:

Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day with our favorite sale picks for now and later.  Have a great weekend!


Friday Buy Day 1.1.15

I know shopping may seem like the last thing you want to do right now, but if you received any gifts you want to return or scored some gift cards you want to put to good use, now is one of the best times of year to take advantage of amazing sales all over the place.  We're bringing you our stylish favorites, all on sale.  Get your size before it's gone.

First up, this stylish sweater from Pam & Gela.  Business in the front, party in the back...this is the perfect cold weather pairing with leather skinnies and sneakers.  It drapes in just the right places to cover up the spare tire that has slowly been expanding since late November(:  Wear it with a lace bralette to avoid any unsightly bra straps, or layer it over a longer tee for a more casual look.  The stripes are perfect peeking out of an army green jacket and the dropped shoulder gives it a slouchy, relaxed feel.  Priced at $116 (from almost $200)and all sizes left...for now.


Next up, this darling dress (yes I said dress) by Free People.  I actually love stuff like this, because although it looks like a tunic on the 5'10 model I know it will be just the right length for someone (like me) who is half a foot shorter(:  For now, try it under a fur vest with over the knee boots and tights.  Come Spring, pack it on your next vacation as a chic cover-up, or try it with strappy gladiator sandals and a straw hat.  If you happen to be blessed with height, this would look great as a tunic over flared denim with wedges or with black skinnies and booties.  

The color, the heel height, the ankle strap, the price...fantastic.  It is difficult for me to wear 4" heels, and there is nothing less sexy than a girl awkwardly wobbling down the street in heels sky high.  These indigo suede heels by Joie are 3.5" inches and will add color and chic to any outfit.  Try them with an all black ensemble for an evening out, or pair them with a bright floral dress for a baby shower.  They would also look great with slouchy ripped jeans, a rocker tee and a blazer.  They are barely $100 from $300 and have most sizes left!  Get yours now and thank me later. 


As you all know, my passion for sneakers is almost matched by my passion for sweats.  I love them both.  A lot.  This pair by Current Elliot have a darkened camo print, side zip pockets (so they don't bulge at your hips) and a drawstring waist.  Wear them with...wait for it...high-tops and a leather jacket for a cozy but stylish Sunday movie night, or try them in the Summer with a slouchy tank, flip flops and a top knot for an uber cool "off duty" look.

I regularly buy dresses, even when I don't have an upcoming party or event (pretty much always on sale, thank you Friday Buy Day).  I do this because the few times I have not done this I end up spending hours and hours frantically shopping for a dress and then way too much money buying a dress I don't even like that much because I need the dress right away.  Save yourself the headache and consider doing the same for yourself.  This fantastic dress oozes cool.  With its champagne coloring and intricate beadwork it is feminine with a bohemian edge.  Pair it with cognac suede knee-high boots for a friend's birthday bash or slip on some strappy bronze heels for an evening wedding.  Priced under $245 get the look of Roberto Cavalli for 1/10 of the price. 

How cool is this necklace?  Made by Fiona Paxton with a bib of beads and feathers it is the perfect accessory to any outfit in need of one.  Try it with a black cashmere sweater, ripped jeans and moto boots now or layer it over a printed maxi dress in the Spring.  It is fresh, cool, timeless and a piece none of your friends will have but all of your friends will want.  Standing out for being stylish is always a good thing.


Lastly, this cozy poncho by Splendid.  With side-vents, a relaxed body and sophisticated color combination it is the perfect topper to a "jeans and tee" ensemble.  Priced under $150, it will become a go-to piece in your closet.  Throw it on over leather leggings for a chic travel outfit, or try it with skinny cords and sneakers for a park run.  It is classic, stylish and utterly wearable.

We hope you enjoyed our first Friday Buy Day of down, 51 more to go!  If you want these weekly sale picks delivered directly to your inbox feel free to add your email address below.

Cheers to a happy, healthy and fantastic New year!

Friday Buy Day 12.4.15

We took last week off for the Thanksgiving Holiday but are back at it this week...our favorite finds, always in style, always on sale.




Tis the Season for sparkles and fur, but it is sometimes hard for me to buy "Holiday" clothing because I know I will only wear it once, maybe twice and then I will tire of it.  I love a "Holiday" dress that can be worn for your festive fete now and your Spring Fling later.  This sueded, intricately embroidered dress by Parker checks both those boxes.  Pair it with snakeskin booties and the rich jewel tones and sueded fabrication make it a cool bohemian option for a Winter event.  Or, try it with a neutral platform in the Spring for a stylish nod to the Seventies trend.

Next up, two of my favorite things (leopard and gladiators) just had a baby...and I couldn't be more excited!!!!  The bows are just icing on the cake.  Wear them with leather skinnies and a cream cashmere sweater, or try them with ripped "girlfriend" denim and a navy striped top.  I love them with a flippy skirt and a tweed sweatshirt, or pair them with a shift dress for a chic work ensemble.  Love everything about them...price included.  And J. Crew is offering 30% off today with code GIVEMORE.  Give yourself more shoe options every morning, and buy these 



Everyone by now is aware of my (strong) affinity for Frame Denim, and this pair is no exception.  I love the slouchy fit, the perfectly distressed wash and the way that this type of denim makes anything "prim and proper" feel a little less so. I love these jeans with a ribbed henley and supergas.  And I really love this jeans with a slinky tank and heels. Try them with the J.Crew leopard gladiators above and a black cashmere turtleneck for the perfect mix of refined and rugged. But them, wash them, roll them, wear them. 


And how about these adorable black moto rain boots? Just because it's raining doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your personal style...and while there are plenty of rain boot options out there, many lean heavily towards the preppy dresser. If that isn't you, then these boots will be a welcome addition to your shoe closet...not to mention they would be a perfect gift (for yourself or someone you love).



And then I spotted this Veda jacket that literally oozes cool: The perfect black lamb skin leather paired with an outrageously stylish shearling collar...doesn't get much better. This is one of those jackets that you buy this year and 3 years later will wear just as frequently. It is a fantastic way to add some edge to an ensemble of jeans and a tee and I love the idea of wearing this as a topper for a floral bohemian maxi dress. Priced at 40% off the original price, this jacket is sure to sell out...get your size before it's gone. 


This top by ATM is one of those tops that once in your line-up, you will wonder what you ever wore before it entered your rotation.  A creamy vanilla color, and french terry construction make it classic and wearable while the dropped shoulder and raglan cuffs and hem add edge and interest.  I love it styled as pictured with other creamy whites and neutrals, or throw it over a denim button up with your favorite slouchy beanie.  It adds a casual element to a tweed skirt and would look fantastic with leather skinnies and high-tops.   


 Lastly, these fringed heels by Joie.  Pairing the perfect neutral color with the perfect amount of funk allows them to be on-point without being trendy.  I love these with (pretty much everything) but these are showstoppers when worn with rolled "girlfriend" jeans and a leather blazer.  Or try them with a long-sleeve maxi dress for a a chic take on the Seventies trend.  The padded insole provides added comfort and they are on sale for under $200 with most sizes left.

We hope you enjoyed this week's top picks for stylish finds at sale prices.  And in other, totally unrelated news...I am OBSESSED with Starbucks new Holiday Spice Flat White drink: espresso with steamed milk that has been infused with cinnamon and cloves.  Obsessed.  Oh, and if you want Friday Buy Day delivered directly to your inbox you can scroll down and add your email address.  Okay, that's it..have a great weekend! 

Friday Buy Day 10.30.15

It's another Friday. So it's another Buy Day. As always, we are sharing our favorite finds from around the web...and all are on sale!



First up, this cozy cardigan. Part boho with the Aztec print and part glam with the faux fur collar, this cardigan delivers serious fashion cred at an amazingly affordable price.  Wear it with black ripped jeans and moto boots or try it over your leather leggings with high-tops for a stylish mix of textures. With a price under $80 and all sizes left, this piece makes a big Fall statement with a little price tag.



Next up are these fantastic flares from Frame. As everyone knows, Frame is one of our favorite denim lines. They seem to be flattering on almost everyone and this particular cut is no different. With a higher rise, a slim leg and a flared hem, these jeans are a must-have. Pair them with a ruffled cropped blouse and chunky heels, or try them with a turtleneck sweater and wedge booties.  Get the denim style of the season on sale while they still have your size in stock.  



Is your mouth open? Mine was when I first laid eyes on this stunning creation. I absolutely adore everything about it. I love the lace neckline, the rich print, the subtle sexiness of the shape and the way it marries Victorian and Bohemian aesthetics. If you have an upcoming wedding, charity event or cocktail party, this dress is begging to dance.  


Back to a more basic requirement...this Enza Costa curved hem top. Seems so simple but is so necessary. Wear it under a vest as the perfect layering piece. Or try it with a cropped jacket, ripped jeans and sneakers for a casual and stylish uniform. It has enough interest to wear solo with its asymmetric hemline, boat neckline and thumb holes but will earn its keep in your closet as your favorite basic.



The perfect Fall vest should be part blanket:) and this one does the trick. Cozy, chic and utterly wearable. Sneakers or boots. Jeans or leather. Date night at the movies or volunteer duty at your child's school, it will work for both.  Most would pair it with something slim on the bottom half, but this vest looks equally as good with the Enza Costa top (above) the Frame flares (above) and a lace-up wedge. On sale and priced under $100, this vest is too good to be left out of your weekly wardrobe.



And to to top it all off, the perfect hat. I am loving the versatility of a slightly wider brim: appropriate for a cozy knit or a floral dress. While well made hats are certainly worth the investment, it is sometimes hard to justify spending $200 on a hat when you know your toddler (or you!) will crush it within weeks. So for all of you who would prefer a less "precious" option, this hat rings in at $49 and delivers all of the style without the hefty price tag. 



Lastly, this luscious wine colored top. I love the shape. I love the lace detailing, and I love this look with a skinny flare jean. I imagine this top worn with the denim featured above, a top knot and a deep pink stained lip. Effortless, cool and sexy in a way only something so stylish could be. 

Hope you enjoyed reading through this week's favorite sale finds!! Wishing you a safe and happy Halloween!! 

Friday Buy Day: Top Fall Picks for Under $300

The children are back in school, we have already had our first rain and things are really starting to  feel like Fall around here.  This week for Friday Buy Day we are bringing you our favorite Fall Essentiials...and all are under $300!

First up, this plaid shirt from Madewell will be a Fall go-to all season long.  Dubbed the "Ex-Boyfriend" shirt because of it's slightly roomier cut and lightweight flannel construction, we picked this as a Fall Essential to pair with leather skinnies, sneakers and a cropped parka.  For a more traditional look, wear it with your favorite denim, riding boots and a chunky knit.  It is machine washable, on-trend, and $79.50 with an additional 20% off.


Next up, your new favorite jeans.  Slight whiskering, a worn-in feel and hitting at the ankle...these Rag and Bone denim are spot on trend yet wearable.  No need to list all the ways to rock these perfectly cool and classic pants.

I am happy to report that these are not optional(:  Pony hair, d'orsay, animal print flats that you will wear with EVERYTHING.  Pair them with a plaid shirt and tomboy jeans.  Wear them with a leather skirt and printed tee, or try them with velvet cords and a turtleneck.  At $268, these are Italian-made, feel super luxe and are worth every penny.  Timeless, chic, bold.


And then there's the leather element...because there always has to be a leather element in your Fall wardrobe.  While the wrap is faux, the skirt is made of 100% real lambskin leather.  It is the perfect length, and high-fashion while being totally approachable (both in appearance, and in price).  Pair it with booties and a faux fur jacket for a night on the town, or rock it during the day with the leopard d'Orsay flats above and a cable-knit sweater.

A "Fall Essentials" list would not be complete without a clutch.  Whether a back-to-school mixer or a Friendsgiving celebration, the Fall is filled with events and you will need something to finish off your chic ensemble.  This navy suede fold-over clutch with a patent leather red stripe will do just that.  We love the classic color combination with the more edgy mix of leathers, and the price point is nice too ($228).  We would rock this clutch with other prints just as often as we would wear it with a monochromatic outfit.  A sample of the perfect outfit: a printed tee, leather jeans, a fur topper, leopard d'Orsay flats and this clutch.

For a fresh and more casual take on the traditional fur jacket, try this plush fleece version.  We love the toast color (although there is a navy option as well), and would wear it with almost anything, and definitely everything posted above.  Try it with a printed tee, leather skinny jeans and the leopard d'Orsay flats.  Or pair it with the flannel shirt, jeans and moto-boots for a more relaxed vibe.  It is a cozy travel companion, and would make the perfect Thanksgiving topper.  At under $200 with the sale code SHOPNOW, this is a Fall Essential that should not be missed.

This is one of those items that once in your closet, you will wonder how you ever lived without it.  A perfect layering piece under your favorite leather jacket with skinny sweats and sneakers, it also looks fantastic with black distressed skinnies, a plush fleece topper and leopard d'orsay flats(all above).  Or, try it tucked into a full, floral skirt with a vibrant necklace come Holiday parties. Paris for the Weekend?  Why you'll have all you need to get there in style.

It seems like everyone has a pair (or three pairs) of booties, and while we love the over-the-knee trend that is dominating the runways right now, that style of boot is not exactly "essential".  These boots are part deconstructed moto-boot and part riding boot, and all you will need to get your fix for a new pair of Fall boots.  Constructed of washed leather for a perfectly worn-in patina, with antiqued hardware and a slouchy shaft that ooze cool these boots are not too rocker, not too equestrian and not too expensive (under $200).  Buy them while they still have stock, and thank us later(:

Lastly, this ethereal dream by Anna Sui.  Tonal embroidery, slight peplum hem and blouson sleeves make this top tower over the other black lace options out there.  Couture in its construction, yet contemporary in its price this beautiful blouse begs to be invited to a cocktail party or a date night.  Timeless, bold, enviable combination.

And there you have it...Jack Ryan's top Fall Essentials for under $300.  Dress confidently knowing that can mix and match prints, textures and pieces to make the styles all your own.  Now get to shopping so that when the clouds roll in and skies open up, you have what you need to be chicly covered.

Have a great weekend!!


Friday Buy Day 9.4.15

Happy Friday.  And it's the happiest kind of Friday because it is Friday of a three-day weekend!  we hope you are doing something fun or relaxing or both, and are bringing you some must-have separates to pack for now...or layer for later.

Because it would be irresponsible to exclude a pair of white denim on Labor Day weekend considering all the controversy that surrounds these cloud-colored pants this time of year...

It is a matter of personal preference, but I wear white denim all year round.  I wear them with the usual pairings in the Spring/Summer, and during the Winter I love to pair them with a cream colored chunky sweater and booties, or a denim button-up, pea-coat and leopard flats.  This pair by my favorite denim line, Frame, and are now $73 from $209!!  They have a mid-rise, they are a perfect length and they are super-flattering...which is saying a lot because white jeans can be tough.  Almost all sizes left, for now....


Cute, right?  Love the gingham print, the eyelet lace detail at the bottom hem and the versatility of this button-up.  Wear it with white jeans, denim shorts or a straw hat for now.  Come fall, try it with the cropped cable-knit sweater featured in the last Friday Buy Day post and add distressed denim and tweed high-tops (another old Friday Buy Day item).  At $49.95 and an additional 30% off the sale price, it is too sweet to skip. 

These Ancient Greek sandals are insane.  Part sandal, part shootie....they are utterly cool.  The perforated leather, wrap around ankle and brass studs are just enough without being too much.  Amazing with printed silk shorts, sundresses, and seventies inspired rompers.  Also perfection with grey distressed denim, a printed tee and leather jacket.  Or try them with a silky blouse and leather skorts (yes, skorts).  There are only 4 sizes left, but I couldn't help posting them because they are so cool.  Originally $325, now $289 and an Additional 50% off!!!

Bohemian chic at it's best.  Softly draped sleeves, a creamy painterly palette, crochet lace trim.  Wear it with denim shorts and gladiators.  Wear it with flare jeans and wedges.  Wear it grey skinny cords and taupe suede booties.  Originally over $300, on sale for half that...and now marked another 30% off the sale will be the gift that keeps on giving.

Moving on from flowy bohemian to body-con rocker is this little number from Current & Elliott.  100% Cotton makes this the perfect, packable, wearable, washable dress.  Throw on a leather jacket for dinner out or wear it during the day with the sandals above for an effortless and edgy look.  For $78, from $156, get the look of Racquel Allegra at 1/3 of the price.


Might seem a little random to include an iPhone case, but I couldn't help myself because my bare iPhone was completely shattered by my 2 year-old last week and I was on the hunt for a chic cover when I found this one.  A nude-rose color of crushed sparkles...yes, please. (and on sale, of course)

Lastly, these grey wash, perfectly distressed jeans for those of you who do not buy into the "white after Labor Day ruling".  Shannon and I believe you should buy what you WILL wear, not what you THINK you will wear.  And these fit that mantra perfectly.  No need to go through all the outfit possibilities, only to point out that at $99 (from $248) this is a Fall (and year-round staple) that should be incorporated into your weekly line-up if you don't have a pair already.

Wishing you your best Labor Day yet.  Cheers!


Friday Buy Day 8.14.15

We are ALL over the map this Friday Buy Day.  We are loving the Summer sale items, but also can't contain our excitement about some cozy knits and leather skirts.  So consider yourself warned that this Friday Buy Day is a schizophrenic smattering of some amazing things we are digging right now.

First up, this beautiful textured maxi dress by Cynthia Vincent.  There are plenty of places that sell really inexpensive maxi dresses, but I've found that investing in a few that are beautiful enough to wear to dinner, and chic enough to last a few seasons are a much better "value" than buying a handful of "cheap" ones each Season.  The v-shaped pattern on the bodice is extremely slimming to the waistline, while the low-back is sexy and elegant.  The pattern and fabric are a timeless combination and at just over $200 (from over $400) you will surely get your money out of this dress for many Seasons to come.

Next Up, a new pair of skinny jeans.  These are from Point Sur's collaboration with J. Crew.  They are made of Japanese denim (the best) and have the perfect amount of whiskering and just a touch of distressing.  With a mid-rise (9 inches) and the perfect wash, these will surely be your go-to denim for now...and later.  On sale for $99 (from $198) with an Additional 30% off the sale price (code SHOPMORE), give these skinnies a try and see if you've discovered your new favorite line of denim.

The schizophrenic part of this post begins now: this (to me) is a non-negotiable staple.  I know that sounds ludicrous...a faux-fur pink cropped jacket with a gray stripe on the back as a "staple?"  And so...I'll explain.  Living in San Francisco, you become obsessed with jackets.  Outerwear in general is probably the most important aspect of one's outfit because it is the most (and sometimes) only piece visible.

I would wear this jacket over a long sleeve gray cashmere sweater with sneakers and skinny jeans, or with a cream blouse, distressed denim and high heels for an evening out.  I would wear it over a cocktail dress during the Holiday Season, and bring it along as my warmth when wearing an all-white outfit.  I love the shape, the color, the versatility and the price (half off...$300 from $600).  A fantastic addition to my jacket wardrobe.

For those of you who are not interested in a salmon-colored faux fur cropped jacket(: here is a more subtle staple.  This chambray tunic/mini-dress by Vince is chic, understated and timeless.  For now, pair it with strappy gladiator sandals and a sheer pink lip.  Later, wear it over leather leggings with leopard flats and a chunky cardigan.  It is the perfect travel companion and can be re-invented countless times depending on how you style it (add a scarf and boots, try it with a statement necklace and oxfords, or wear it with a cropped leather vest and your Superga high-tops...the list goes on)

These will be delivered to my doorstep in 1-3 days based on the shipping information(:  Love the matte black frames, gold detailing and unisex shape.  I'll let you know how they look on my face but very hopeful that these will be my new favorite sunnies.

A (faux) lizard leather mini skirt? Yes, please.  This is the perfect addition to everyone's wardrobe for Fall.  Now on sale for under $200, this piece feels ultra-luxe without the ultra-luxe price tag.  Wear it with a chunky knit and booties, or add a silky blouse and strappy heels for a party.  It is sexy, interesting and super versatile.

Lastly, this super cozy chunky knit sweater.  With it's wide-rolled sleeves, open knit detailing and side zipper, this sweater is sure to be a weekend favorite.  Pair it with skinny sweats for a stylish leisure look, or try it with leather leggings for a date at the movie theatre.  This is the perfect "I am not trying too hard, I just look this cool" sweater.  I know you know what I mean.

Congratulations!  You made it through this crazy post.  Hope you found some pieces that you love, whether for Summer, Fall or a little of both.  

Have a great weekend!! 


Friday Buy Day 8.7.15

Much like our wardrobes often need a little pick me up, this time of year often makes me want some fresh pieces to enliven my home.  This Friday we are bringing you some awesome (and cost-conscious) ideas to give your place the mini-facelift it needs.

1.  We absolutely adore this over-dyed rug from Lulu & Georgia.  The saturated, yet faded turquoise color looks fantastic with gray, beige, pink, navy...and the list goes on.  Use this instead of your boring Pottery Barn sisal to liven up your living space.  It is just as beautiful under a sofa as it is peeking out from under your bed.  Or try a smaller size in your kitchen...making coffee while standing on this beauty is a great way to start your day.

2.   Next up, this awesome leather butterfly chair.  Inspired by the Ralph Lauren Home one we drooled over recently (that was $4000), this one rings in at under $300!!  It comes in chocolate or ebony and would look great in the corner of your living room with a sheepskin and a floor lamp, or try a pair across from your sofa to update your space.

3.  This paper-maiche side table is the perfect way to lighten up a room, especially if you have a dark rug.  With it's sculptural shape and bright white color it would look great with a task lamp next to a corner chair or add one in between two arm chairs as the perfect perch for your cocktail.

4.  Depending on the pieces the home-owner (or renter) already has in her collection, Shannon and I often use art as a compass for the palette of the space.  This ethereal and happy piece by Jen Garrido lends itself to a fresh and collected space.  Try it on your mantel in a living room with blues and grays.  Or add it to your bedroom, with a navy blue campaign style dresser and crisp white bedding.  Throw a vintage Hmong lumbar on top and your bedroom will feel clean, modern and balanced.

5.  We love this white rose topiary (it's alive).  It is an easy, and low maintenance way to add greenery and life to your home.  The flowers bloom most of the year and the plant will last for about 4 months inside.  At $75, this is an economical and beautiful way bring the outdoors in.  Buy a pair to flank your fireplace, and wrap some tiny lights around the base.  You don't need a Holiday to make your home feel festive and special every night of the year.

6.  Lastly, this uber chic ceramic lamp.  Great texture, great size, and great price (under $200).  Add it to an entry console for a perfectly lit foyer, or try it on your bedroom dresser for a pop of color and layer of interest.


Much like a new jacket or pair of shoes for your wardrobe... a new rug, some greenery or a pair of chairs can give your space the little boost in confidence that it craves this time of year.

Friday Buy Day 7.31.15

The beginning of August is one of the best times to sale shop...arguably even better than sale shopping post Holiday.  There are Pre-Season sales that get everyone excited about cozy Fall knits and there are also Spring/Summer sales with boatloads of great warm-weather clothing dramatically reduced.  I am enticed by both:  Fall is around the corner, and (strangely) this is the perfect time to buy Spring/Summer when you live in San Francisco because we are fast approaching the warmest months of the year.

With 2 weddings coming up, I couldn't help but post this beautiful mermaid style dress by Mason.  The sexy bar straps and elegant shape make this a perfect choice for a rehearsal dinner, or an engagement party.  And if you are not the bride to be, buy this dress as a chic cocktail alternative.  Pair it with deco jeweled earrings, or a fanciful cuff.  White in the Fall/Winter is always welcome.

Next up, this open knit cardigan by Three Dots.  This is the kind of work-horse everyone needs in their closet.  With a chunky marbled knit, cotton construction and ribbed trim it is equal parts functional and stylish.  This is the perfect topper when you're traveling so that you feel comfortable and look pulled together.  It is machine washable, under $90 (from $180) and currently there are all sizes left.

Because things are really starting to heat up around here (SF), I would be remiss not to include a Summer maxi in the line-up of must-haves.  This cotton maxi has a darling batik print, a deep slit and an adjustable halter neck tie.  With a slightly boho feel, it is easy, breezy and wants to be worn at home or on vacation.

This blouse is the perfect blouse.  Timeless, yet modern, it has a  sexy draped neck, elegant silk fabrication and gently cuffed sleeves.  Wear this tucked into a pencil skirt, or try it with wide-leg trousers for a refined menswear inspired look.  It would also look fantastic with ripped jeans and stilettos.  Your new "go-to" blouse is under $100 and will be one of your favrorite Fall staples.

Because it is party (wedding) season, I couldn't help but include this amazing tulle and embroidered dress by Alice and Olivia.  A deep v neckline keeps it from feeling too sweet while the beading and scalloped hem show intricate, almost couture-like, detail.  The restrained and classic color combination ensures this dress has no time-stamp and the half-off price ensures this dress won't empty your piggy bank.  

Wishing you a wonderful (and stylish) weekend!!





Friday Buy Day 7.24.15

As always, this Friday Buy Day we are delivering you awesome fashion, all on sale.  

Take a look....

Might as well start with a show-stopper right?  This printed maxi dress by Parker is sexy (open-back not shown), versatile and yearns to be twirled on a dance floor.  Love the geometric bodice and the tropical print.  Try it with simple ankle strap heels and bold lips.... and wait for the compliments to roll in.

These Rag & Bone jeans are awesome.  It's hard to find denim, and we've found that Rag & Bone is flattering on virtually everyone.  These are cool because of the frayed hem and the straight leg.  We love these jeans with sneakers as much as we love them with stilettos (if too long, get them altered to ankle length).  And now, at $149 (from $198) and an Additional 30% off the Sale Price (most sizes left), it seems criminal not to put a pair in your cart and see if they are your new favorite denim. 

Next up, this darling chambray top.  The structured, slightly boxy fit and the flared sleeve are high fashion, while the price is anything but.  Wear this with flared denim and wedges, or try it with printed silk pants.  Simple, elegant and much more interesting than a white tee.

If you're going to indulge in the culotte trend, this is the way to do it.  This Alice & Olivia jumpsuit screams "cool".  The linen and the stripes are classic, while the cropped wide leg and cut-out back are decidedly modern.  Be bold, and wear this in lieu of a dress for your next brunch date or baby shower.

Lastly, these chic sandals from Vince.  They don't require much in terms of when to wear them because they are so versatile.  Love the snakeskin, love the woven platform and love the ankle strap. They are currently $154 from $275 with almost all sizes left (for now).  If I saw a girl walking down the street wearing the Rag and Bone frayed denim (above), the flutter sleeve chambray top (above), and these on her feet...I would definitely pause to admire.  Make your wardrobe envy worthy as well (:

Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day!  Have a great weekend.



Friday Buy Day 7.17.15

I am feeling guilty that I haven't been writing more, but we have been so busy with our design work that we have had little time to share our many thoughts about everything that's going on!  But, at minimum, we are committed to bringing you Friday Buy Day every week and as I'm sure many of you know... it's Nordstrom's Anniversary sale right now!  Crazy to think that we can already shop for Fall attire, but excited to share some awesome pieces at major discounts...

This cropped military jacket from Rag and Bone is a MUST.  I actually have last year's version (a little longer in length and a little more boxy) and I wear it non-stop.  This one is even more chic because it is the perfect length for layering over a longer cashmere sweater and tee, or try it over a printed dress with boots to toughen up a more feminine look.  It is washable, wearable and now on sale for $ will be back up to $350 when the sale is over, so get yours today.

Next up, this elegant and stylish jumpsuit from DVF.  Everyone knows Shannon and I love a onesie, but the pant jumpsuit is particularly elegant and chic.  Love the cobalt color, the draped sleeve and the slightly slouchy trouser style.  So effortless.  Wear this to a work event, a friend's birthday party or add some beautiful earrings and head to a cocktail party.  You will be the best-dressed guest.

Like the Rag and Bone military jacket above, this is another stylish workhorse.  This is one of those pieces that once it is in your closet, you will wonder how you ever lived without it.  Wear it over a striped cashmere sweater with skinny jeans and sneakers, or pair it with leather leggings and a silky blouse for a night on the town.  It instantly adds luxury and texture...and at $89 you can not afford to miss this buying opportunity.

FDBD 7.17 4.jpg

Because everyone needs a new Fall bag, and it doesn't always have to be an oversized one.  This clutch is a great size, has a luxurious sheen and texture and goes with everything.  Under $170.  Enough said.

Lastly, these "sweater" sneakers from Nike.  They come in three color ways ( I love the charcoal/black) and are just as pretty as they are practical.  I would wear the black/charcoal ones with skinny denim and and a leather jacket, or try them with skinny sweats and a chunky scarf.  Elevating your cozy weekend attire is mandatory in the Fall.  


Hope you enjoyed these Fall picks from Nordstrom's Anniversary sale.  Happy Shopping.  

Friday Buy Day 7.10.15

Clearly, San Francisco weather (it is currently raining) does not dictate our Summer purchases.  This week we are bringing you some more stylish must-haves...all on sale, of course.

First up, this darling top.  Slightly sweet, and slightly sexy it is a perfect top to pair with lacy shorts and sandals or flared denim and wedges.  It is $69.95 from $130 and an additional 20% off the sale price with code SALEAWAY.  Get yours, and head to your next backyard BBQ or Happy Hour in style.

Next up, these chic shorts from Ella Moss.  The lace is feminine and flirty, the banded waist is really flattering and they would look just as lovely with the silk blouse (above) as they would with a denim button-up.  At $78, you will get your wear out of these in no time.

I am totally obsessed with these sandals  They instantly make an outfit, and the olive green color goes with virtually everything.  I picture them with grey skinny jeans and a slouchy white tank, or try them with a Texas Tuxedo (denim on denim) to add a little glam factor.  They are now an ADDITIONAL 40% off the sale price...making them around $85 from $200.  Sold.

Lastly, I must confess...I bought this beautiful embroidered cover-up yesterday because I couldn't stand the thought of it selling out in my size.  I love the scalloped edges, the wide sleeves, the v neck and creamy color!  Gorgeous over a swimsuit..or add a gladiator sandal and a straw hat and for the perfect margarita sipping ensemble.  It is around $100 from over $200, and from now on will never go absent from my packing list.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Friday Buy Day 6.26.15

This Friday Buy Day is extra special as we approach the Fourth of July!  We are bringing you our top picks for this fantastic Holiday with enough time for shipments to arrive before the big BBQ.

First things first, high-waist denim shorts.  This collaboration with Alexa Chung and AG is a good one and these cut-offs are the perfect mix of casual cool.  Great rinse, perfect length and look just as cool with a cropped lace blouse as they do with a boyfriend button-down.

Next up, this beautiful embroidered blouse.  We love the softly flared sleeve, the tassle detail on the neck-tie (although personally I'd leave the tie undone for a more relaxed and open neck-line) and the bronze, royal and cream color combo.  Pair this with ripped denim and metallic sandals (see below) for a chic but effortless look, or try it with cut-offs and an open-toe bootie for an edgy and bohemian vibe.

This bathing suit by Lauren Moffatt epitomizes patriotic style.  The floral print is a little bit sweet while the bandeau cut-out is a little bit sexy.  This would look fantastic with denim shorts and a fringed straw hat for milling around the pool.

We love a graphic tee or sweater and this one is perfect to pack for your 4th of July getaway.  Wear it with ripped jeans and a head-scarf for a playful yet casual look, or try it with a denim shirt underneath, skinny sweats and sneakers for a cozy evening around a fire roasting s'mores!

I DIE for these cullottes.  If you are inclined to indulge in this latest trend, these are the pants (shorts?) for you..and they are now an ADDITIONAL 20% Off the sale price of $79 with code SALEAWAY!  Love the print, love the shape, love everything.  I picture them with a cropped blouse, and strappy heels (red suede would look great!) for a Fourth of July fete that is a little more dressy than a backyard BBQ.

Lastly, these rose gold sandals will be your go-to shoe of the season and are now on sale for $99 (from almost $200) and are an additional 20% for a limited time.  The twisted silk rope, rose gold color and the tassle details make for a sophisticated take on the Grecian trend.  They would look great with the ethereal embroidered blouse (mentioned above) and denim shorts, or pair them with a breezy maxi.  These are the perfect sandals for an evening when you want to feel a bit dressy but don't have the energy to wear a high-heel.

And there you have it...our top picks to be the best-dressed guest no matter where your Fourth of July plans are taking you!!


Friday Buy Day 6.19.15

It's Friday again which means it's time for us to share some of our favorite sale picks!  We are headed to Ojai next weekend for a girls trip so we chose pieces inspired by our upcoming getaway!

The color of the sun isn't for everyone, but if it's for you...then this is the dress.  Finished in a gauzy cotton fabric and off-the-shoulder, this dress is modern and clean with a boho appeal.  Wear it as a cover-up, or pair it with neutral flats and a bold turquoise earring for dinner al-fresco.  It is $39 (on sale at Zara) and is an inexpensive way to indulge in bold color and the shoulder baring trend.

Next up is this ethereal embroidered top.  We love the gathered sleeves, the blouson shape and the creamy color.  Pair this top with denim cut-offs and ankle wrapped sandals, or try it with skinny flare denim and natural colored wedges for a casual evening out.  It is less than $100 from almost $200 and you will wear it ALL the time.  This will be part of my traveling ensemble as it is comfortable to wear on a plane, while chic enough to wear while wine-tasting.

LOVE. love, love these jeans.  Made by Frame (one of our favorite denim lines), they are skinny flares.  Skinny at the top and through the thigh...flared from the knee down, making them THE most flattering style of denim ever!  Because they are slim at the top, feel free to experiment with different top styles.  They look fantastic with a more cropped, boxy style blouse or try them with a blouse tucked-in for an elegant outfit.  We also love them with a more drapey, boho style blouse (like the one pictured above) and wedges for an unexpected and chic combination.  These sell for $220, now are on sale for $149 and are an ADDITIONAL 50% OFF the sale price!  All sizes left...for now.


A little louder than our previous picks, we couldn't help but add this to our list because of it's sexy, yet boho shape and bold color palette.  Screams vacation, right?  This Mara Hoffman dress is perfect for Happy Hour margaritas, or lounging around the pool playing dice.   Pack it for a weekend trip to Southern Cal, or a week-long trip to Mexico or is fun, fresh and easy to wear.



These sandals complete all of the above, and anything/everything else you have in your closet.  They are super-stylish, while also remaining super neutral.  They don't compete with loud pattern, yet will add depth and interest to a "plain" outfit.  They are only $125, and are a fantastic and versatile addition to your sandal collection.


Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day picks...Have a wonderful weekend!

Friday Buy Day 6.5.15

We're doing something a little different this Friday Buy Day and instead of featuring a handful of separates to add to your wardrobe, we are bringing you our favorite Summer outfit.  Meaning, if the weather cooperated, and we had to wear one outfit everyday, this would be it (and of course it is all on sale!).

The ensemble is simple, yet stylish.  The heather gray racer-back muscle tee is the perfect foundation piece for the cotton candy tweed jacket, keeping it from looking too sweet.  The gray color picks up on the silver button and zipper of the jacket and the ripped cut-offs are an unexpected addition to a more "ladylike" jacket.  The jacket is a cotton-blend making it the perfect weight for an extra layer.  I wasn't sure if I could pull off the whole birkenstock didn't quite feel like me.  But somehow, add some sparkles and I am all about those "hippie" sandals (:

1.   Gray Racer-back Tee ($19.95)

2.   Pink Tweed Jacket (now $349 from $582)

3.   Distressed Cut-Offs (now $39)

4. Sparkly Sandals (now $79)

All of these items are fabulous separates, and as a whole they create our favorite Summer ensemble.

Friday Buy Day 5.22.15

As we head into this Memorial Weekend we are bringing you some easy breezy separates that appropriately lend themselves to BBQ'ing burgers and sipping on margaritas.

First up, these darling overalls from Madewell.  They are the perfect length with just the right amount of distressing.  I love overalls for Summer...they are really versatile, and while they certainly can seem "youthful", there are ways to make them feel a bit more sophisticated.  Try pairing them with an off-the-shoulder blouse and espadrilles for the perfect combination of feminine/tomboy.

Oh...those espadrilles I just mentioned.  Here they are.  These are so stylish and I absolutely love the ankle wrap for a bohemian take on a more classic shoe.  The color combination allows you to wear them with anything and the peep-toe will perfectly display your pedicure.  While these are sold-out online (except for mini sizes)...I took a lot of time to check stores all across California and they are largely IN-STOCK in stores (almost all sizes at the Grant Street location for you SF peeps).  They are an ADDITIONAL 40% off the palatable price of $118.  Reserve yours today (online) and pick up in a store near you.

This darling blouse from Topshop is a Memorial Day Weekend must have.  At $52 it is well within budget and oozes bohemian femininity.  The lace detailing is sweet, while the shoulder exposure is sexy.  This would look fantastic underneath overalls for a more fashion-forward ensemble, or try it with high-waisted denim and wedges for an evening with friends.

Some call it a mumu, I call it fantastic.  Any chance I get to wear a floaty trapeze dress, I take.  This one from Free People is on sale for $88, has a cool cut-out in the back, a flattering v-neckline, and long sleeves which I always appreciate.  Pair it with gladiators and a straw hat for a Memorial Day BBQ, or pack it on your next trip as a chic cover-up.  It's easy, stylish and needless to is comfortable.


Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day and hope you have a safe and celebratory Memorial Day weekend.


Friday Buy Day 5.15.15

It's another Friday which means it's another Buy Day.  Time to  scoop up some great pieces on sale so let's get down to it:

This is the bohemian version of a shirtdress (at the bohemian price of $76).  A drop waist, petite floral print and a flounce hem are the makings of a casually cool and feminine frock.  It would look just as good with gladiator sandals and a panama hat as it would with a denim jacket, wedges and a top knot for a late afternoon/evening event.  It's fresh, modern and sexy without being revealing.

Love this straw tote.  The fringe is spot-on trend without feeling trendy.  The natural raffia and black colors are a classic combination and will always be in style.  Add dark sunglasses, skinny jeans and espadrilles and this "beach bag" is a chic carry on.  Oh the places you'll go...

Everyone knows Shannon and I love a good romper.  Long sleeve, short sleeve, pants or shorts...we like them all!  We found this brand a little while ago and they make really affordable, really stylish pieces with a bohemian vibe.  This crochet romper is only $72 and is darling as a beach cover-up, or we love the idea of pairing it with two other Friday Buy Day items: the black bralette(from Urban Outfitters) and the black Matiko gladiators we featured two weeks ago.  Effortless and super stylish.

These Joie Kidmore sneakers are fantastic.  We found them for $154 (from $220), even though they are still full price at all other retail outlets we checked!  They have all sizes in stock except 9, for now....but I'm sure not for long.

These sneakers are sporty, stylish and the perfect color.  Can't think of another style of shoe that offers the elegance of a smoking slipper while offering the comfort of a sneaker.  These will become your go-to shoe with a cashmere sweater and jeans, as well as with a linen tee and cut-offs.  Get your size before it's sold out! 


We are definitely aware that this is a "trend" but we love it....and for $14.50, everyone is welcome to participate.  These mismatched earrings would be the perfect complement to that more conservative wedding dress ensemble, or a welcome addition to an all black outfit (or all white, or all denim).   With mismatched earrings, a petite choice is the best choice.  Nothing wrong with making your stylish statement subtly...

 It is actually really hard to find the perfectly cropped denim jacket.  Longer ones can look boxy and masculine.  Worse than a manly denim jacket is picking one that is TOO cropped.  No offense...but if your daughter can barely get away with her Justice ensemble, you certainly can't get away with it.  

This one from Paige is under $120 and has all sizes left.  This is a mandatory Spring/Summer staple to layer over your maxi dress or top off embroidered shorts.  With a mid-wash and classic styling, this jacket will last you for years to come.

Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day!  If you want this directly in your inbox, just scroll down and add your email address in the "Subscribe to the Blog" box below.  Have a great weekend!
