I’ve been waiting to reveal my news to you until my last day of work – I quit my job! I’ve been afraid, nervous and also very excited to share this with all of you because I don’t have my business page up yet, but instead of keeping it a secret I wanted to get it out there in the world. I’ll be working with design clients, styling photo shoots for publications and lookbooks, and helping small (and large) businesses grow their social media strategies. I’m thrilled to focus on my own way now. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart and it seemed like the perfect window of opportunity to dive into this new endeavor. I know this road will be bumpy but if I didn’t take the leap I’d never know what it would be like or what I can accomplish. So, I’m giving myself this opportunity and hopefully as this window closes many more will open up to me.
I can’t wait to see Sacramento Street grow and dive into fun, challenging and exciting projects in the near future! Definitely keep me in mind if you hear of any opportunities where you think I’d fit.
Cheers to all of you for being amazing supporters of Sacramento Street – without you I would have never been able to take this leap!
Have a lovely first weekend of December! I’m off to Dallas and Austin to visit the lovely Joslyn and Camille for a week, but I’ll be back here Monday with an exciting week of posts.

I have to tell you, I’m in love with this little vignette. It’s simple and casual in the perfect way.
This has been my go-to look all month – short boots, skinny pants and a wool coat (I might have to add a hat once it gets colder).
I’m constantly telling myself this.
Bundling up and going out for a picnic to enjoy the chilly sunshine.
The scent of diptyque candles makes my heart sing.
This fall I was honored to be asked to participate in Gap’s Styld.by San Francisco series with Rue Magazine. I’m sure by now you’ve seen a bundle of tastemakers featured over on the Styld.by site – Apartment 34, Oh Happy Day, Shop Sweet Things and many more. SEE MORE STYLES
For this particular Styld.by series we were asked to pick our favorite Gap item – in this case an ivory Cable Knit Cowl Scarf caught my eye. The rest of the outfit was pulled together by a Rue stylist and items from our very own closet (my go-to Rag & Bone jeans and Isabel Marant boots).
Since we’re embarking on the holiday season of gift guides, Gap also asked each of us to make some gift picks – perfect for the December issue of Rue! We are featured amongst some amazing finds . . . it’s the ultimate holiday gift guide. Gap asked me to select a few special items for a Mini Fashionista – luckily I have a lot of girlfriends with daughters that are looking for the best Christmas presents for their little ones.
I had a blast working with all these talented ladies. I’d also like to thank both Gap and Rue for including me in this series!

A HUGE thank you goes out to Chloe Rose Boutique, Carrots and Academy of Art University for loaning me some fabulous pieces for the shoot.
When I set time for myself to unplug, I’m a complete book nerd. With the cold and rainy days ahead I’m ready to curl up with a few reads. Luckily, these books are good to purchase for friends or family as a Christmas gift or you can pick it up for yourself for those long flights home.

Friends, it’s that time – gift giving is upon us! Lucky for us To & From Magazine just launched, the magazine is a curated gift guide. The best part, founders Meg and Katie put it together with a fabulous group of bloggers and tastemakers! And yours truly was lucky enough to contribute. Since I’m a monochromatic gal I thought it was the perfect gift guide to put together.
