Brittany gave me this uber soft infinity scarf for my birthday and I just love it. Now that Fall is finally here, it is the perfect touch to warm up pretty much any outfit. It matches perfectly with two new pieces that I just added to my wardrobe, a grey top and a pair of army green jeans.
I am constantly being inspired by pieces that I see put together on Pinterest. One look that I have loved for about a year now is preppy with a bit of grunge. Pairing this tartan print blazer with ripped jeans works great!
I’m the last person to rock a crop top but when I found this skirt and top, I just loved them. They are comfortable and I love love love the print. It’s also one of the only outfits I don’t feel like a giant when I wear heels because they are concealed by the skirt.
It seems weird to be still wearing sleeveless tops but with this Indian Summer here in SF, we will take it!
In San Francisco, September and October are the warmest months of the year. It gets warm enough for skirts and dresses during the day but brisk enough at night to pull out thick sweaters. It’s my favorite time for many reasons; the air is crisp, everything smells like pumpkin, and I get to pull out my warm toned clothing.
I’m a big fan of simple and don’t like to wear anything too loud. However, I am a huge fan of colors so I’m always playing with ways to add a little bit of color. I love the lounge bras from Victoria Secret’s Pink! section for fun comfy pieces. At the end of each season, they usually clearance out everything from the season ending which is where I swoop up some good stuff.
Another way I like to add to a simple black, white, or grey outfit is to add a fun lipstick. I love love love this NARS lip color Angela that I’m wearing above. It’s a cooler hue and lasts for hours.
How do you add color to your basics?
Since getting into climbing, I’ve been realistic with my own progression but also set goals for where I want to take it. I’ve always loved the idea of climbing outdoors so when I started climbing, I knew eventually I’d want to take it outside. After doing tons of research on places to climb in the bay area, my climbing friend Kevin and I, took to scoping out one of the well known spots along beautiful and coastal highway 1. We were planning to just scope it all out but once we saw some climbable boulders, we couldn’t resist. We were also able to scope out some lead climbing routes that will be something for us to conquer in the near future!

I’ve never dabbled with the chia seed craze but a friend at work shared this super simple recipe that I love. She even brought some into work for a few of us to try to sell us and it’s so delicious! It’s easy to make but you need to let it set over night in the fridge. Here’s the skinny on what you need and what to do:
- 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
- 2 T chia seeds
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 2-3 t agave nectar syrup
- Dash of cinnamon (I actually didn’t have cinnamon so I substituted with ground ginger)
- Wisk or shake in mason jar make sure that all seeds and syrup is incorporated
- Refrigerate overnight
- Eat with berries and chopped raw almonds if preferred
