Living With Great Style

Travel Essentials: Alaska

Travel Essentials : Alaska | Sacramento Street Travel Essentials : Alaska | Sacramento Street It was almost 20 years ago that I took my very first trip to Alaska. I remember the stunning glaciers, sea otters and whales. When Eric and I sat down to plan our babymoon we wanted to go someplace adventurous, beautiful and unexpected. I’d say this isn’t your typical babymoon. Plus, it has been on Eric’s bucket list for quite some time. With that being said, we are combining luxury with adventure by going on a cruise. I can’t wait for our boat – the Celebrity Solstice to take us from one port to the next where we’ll be disembarking to different excursions (including hiking on glaciers!!!).

When packing for Alaska I knew I’d have to prepare for any kind of weather – sun, rain, and ice cold temperatures when hiking. A few readers reached out about what I was bringing because they are planning trips to Alaska as well – looks like it’s a popular destination! That’s why I wanted to share my packing list with all of you. The most important essential – a super warm Woolrich jacket that I have a feeling I’ll be living in the entire trip.

1.) Plaid Mix Scarf

2.) Igor Caviar Velvet

3.) ‘Pronto’ Dry Shampoo

4.) The Vacationers

5.) Tiny Dot Socks

6.) Alexis Hat

7.) Perfect Cardigan

8.) Arctic Parka

9.) Zhumell 10x 42mm Short Barrel Waterproof Binoculars

10.) Roam Black Metallic Boots

I hope this helps you pack for your next cold weather getaway – the winter months will be here before you know it!

Four Favorites : Scarves | Sacramento Street

In keeping with our “gearing up for fall” theme – I wanted to share a handful of scarves I’ve been eyeing. While it isn’t quite cool enough during the day (unless the fog decides to say hello), our nights have been a bit breezy. Last night in particular when we went for a walk, I noticed a slight chill to the air. I couldn’t believe it until I looked at my watch and realized the sun was setting before 8pm. It’s sad to see long summer nights go. I hope a few of these scarf options inspire you for the cool nights that are ahead.


1.) ‘Kala Camouflage’ Wool Infinity Scarf


2.) Woven Animal Print Scarf


3.) Silk Cashmere Wrap


4.) Open Stitch Infinity Scarf

Layer It : Gearing Up For Fall

   Layer It: Gallery Opening | Sacramento Street

Can you believe the last weekend of summer is approaching? I honestly don’t know where the month of August went. This summer went by incredibly fast and while I’m already giddy about the crisp fall weather that is around the corner, I’m a little sad to say goodbye to impromptu trips to the beach and pool. With that being said, I wanted to inspire you for what’s to come – more layered ensembles. While this is still keeping with lighter tones I wanted to share what I’ll be sporting in the next few weeks as we see a more crisp side of things come our way. Have you spotted any pre-fall musts out there that you’re coveting?

How is it already late August? Kids are going back to school, which automatically sets in that feeling of prepping for fall to come. Honestly, it’s my favorite time of year. I love the crisp, cool air. What gets me even more excited is fall fashion. There isn’t anything quite like layering up. One thing I’m always on the hunt for every fall is a new go to black bag that I can take with me to client meetings. The bag has to fit client notebooks, my tape measure, binders, fabric samples, you name it. These are a few options I’ve been eyeing this past week. Do you have a favorite tote that you love or are coveting? I’d love to know!


1.) ‘Super Zip’ Messenger Bag


2.) ‘Elite’ Tote


3.) ‘Mini Domo Arigato Packrat’ Backpack


4.) ‘Harriet Hobo’

Layer It: Happy Hour

Layer It: Gallery Opening | Sacramento Street
Happy hour is a rarity these days. Lately, I’ve been making more of an effort to meet up with friends after work. I have to say, bartenders are getting better and better at coming up with delicious mock-tails that excite me to go out. So, while I have this burst of energy in my second trimester, I’m taking all of the happy hour dates I can get. Since my bump is still somewhat small I’ve been wearing my broken-in boyfriend jeans with a blouse and booties (yes, fogust has all San Franciscans in boots until our indian summer arrives). Do you have a go to look for happy hour dates? A favorite blouse or look?

The Basics:

1.) Broken-In Boyfriend Jean in Ludington Wash


2.) Collection Picot Ruffle Blouse


The Layers:


3.) ‘Miss Havisham Kinetic Gold’ Stack Ring


4.) ‘Tiny Metro’ Leather Strap Watch, 20mm 


5.) ‘Vold’ Embossed Cap Toe Bootie 


6.) ‘Bedford Tassel- Medium’ Convertible Leather Shoulder Bag
