A Pop of Red

Monday, November 17, 2014

 I woke up to find that it was a very chilly morning in San Francisco. I  I knew I wanted to throw on a pair of cosy tights, but I wasn't sure what else. The easiest option was to pull a dark and comfy dress from the closet. I decided on a black lace Yumi dress from ASOS. This dress is flowy and has an adorable lace overlay, it's perfect for a morning coffee and croissant run. Btw, how cute is this wallpaper? I was loving the layout of this little coffee shop in the Marina called Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters. It's such a cute spot to sit and have a cup of coffee in the morning before a crazy busy day.

 I paired my all black and blue outfit with a bright pop of red in both my lipstick, Nars lip pencil in Cruella, and my Kate Spade Cedar Street Patent Aster purse. I picked up this cute little purse last week at a shopping party hosted by Kate Spade & AFAR magazine to showcase Kate Spade's new Las Vegas collection. I've said it before and I'm sure I will say it again, Kate Spade really knows how to throw a party. Roulette tables, photo booth photographers, champagne, macaroons, everything that goes into the making of a super fun soiree!
 My favorite part of this lace dress has to be the Peter Pan collar. I love, love, love Peter Pan collars on dresses. I think it gives the dress such a young and fun feel.
 The chilly weather is always quick to make its way to San Francisco so I knew I needed a warm coat to keep me cosy. I absolutely love toggle coats and I was on the hunt for a new one for the Fall that wasn't super bulky. I found this cute navy blue toggle coat at Forever 21 for under $30! This coat has everything I love in a coat; toggle buttons, a wide hood and pockets. I believe every coat in the universe needs to have pockets. It's also not a super heavy coat, which is awesome because it makes it perfect for the everyday.

  1. Your clothing mix is lovely! I love that pop of red color with the Kate Spade bag! And I like the ASOS lace dress. It's amazing how you can wear that all-year round. Add tights in the winter or go without in the summer :)
