Stepping into Spring | Sacramento Street 6Today, we’re saying goodbye to winter because tomorrow we’ll be stepping into a new season. It’s time to think about putting away the wool and start bringing out your cotton favorites! I’m ready for warmer weather, open toed shoes and light weight scarves. There’s something special I love about spring – maybe it’s all of the beautiful flowers that line the streets, or the fact that I can finally show off my pedicure after months of being hidden inside my boots. Luckily, we’ve been graced with beautiful spring-like weather here in San Francisco the past week and I’ve been able to show off two new staples – the Gayle sandal and exotic infinity scarf with poms. These items will be making a regular appearance this spring from Sole Society. While thinking about my spring wardrobe I love mixing high and low items together. Since Sole Society is constantly adding new styles it has become one of my go-to shops for spicing up my wardrobe for a new season.


What do you love most about spring? Is it a fresh new wardrobe? The fact that it’s light out a little longer? Picnics in the park? I’d love to know!


Remember, if you need a few new items for warmer temperatures be sure to pop over to Sole Society or scroll through the shopping widget below.

Four Favorites

Four Favorites | Sacramento StreetSpring is right around the corner – I know I have been dreaming about it with all this rain we’ve been having. While I’m a firm believer in purchasing investment pieces, when it comes to adding fun seasonal items to my wardrobe I definitely don’t want to break the bank on them. Everyone deserves to look chic without a large price tag. That’s why I always turn to Sole Society for these items. With new styles being added every week I know I can always find something chic to add to my regular rotation. I’ve pulled together a handful of my favorite items that I’ll be adding into my regular wardrobe once it warms up. For now I’ll be bringing them down to Arizona for spring training with me.


1.) Regina Round Frame Sunglasses in Milky Taupe


2.) Layout Cutout Ring


3.) Lightweight Infinity Scarf in Stone


4.) Cooper Leather Gladiator Sandal in Frappe

More of my spring time favorites!

Holiday Style & Gift Guide with ShopStyle

ShopStyle_LuckyMagThe holiday season is now in full swing. I’ve been finding myself in a flurry thinking about different ensembles to wear to holiday events – you never know if they’ll be the same crowd at each party. However, who wants to spend a fortune on different options? This year, I’ve decided that instead of getting different outfits for each party, I’ll pair one dress with different accessories. So I turned to ShopStyle to help me out! That way I can feel confident in a dress that I love and play around with fun pieces to spice it up – I mean who doesn’t love a new pair of shoes or jewels? A little black dress has been my go to this season. Then I can add in leopard shoes or patent pumps and bling it up with either a pair of earrings or a statement necklace.

The Dress:

A.L.C Steff Dress

 

Option One:

Crystal and Metal Necklace | Kate Spade New York Pop Fizz Clink Clutch (Rent it!) | J.Crew Collection Valentina Calf Hair d’Orsay Pumps

 

Option Two: 

Erickson Beamon Girls On Film Crystal Statement Earrings | ASOS Clutch Bag With Metal Plate and Wrap | Valentino Studded Patent Leather Heels

 

Now that we’ve got out holiday ensemble figured out – it’s time to think about some holiday gifting you can do straight through ShopStyle. They’ve made it simple and easy. The site is fantastic, but for this time of year there’s one element that I truly love. If you’re looking for a particular item ShopStyle will show you everywhere you can purchase it! You don’t have to worry about running across the most terrifying words on the web, “sold out.” Now you have multiple options from where to find that must-have sweater, dress, or bag that you’ve been eyeing. I’ve pulled together a few of the most coveted items I’m hoping are under my Christmas tree this year. When I put together my list every year I try to incorporate higher-end items with a few stocking stuffers. Is that what you do? Here are my top picks!

Hosting the Holidays with Kate Spade

Holiday Tabletop | Sacramento StreetHoliday Flowers | Sacramento StreetHoliday Tabletop | Sacramento Street


The first week of December has come and gone – entirely too quickly in my opinion! With that being said, it’s time to get prepped for all of the holiday parties that await us at our house this season. Since it’s finally big enough to host more than four people. The holidays are in FULL effect and it’s time to do this thing with the help of Kate Spade of course! This season when prepping for the holidays and our holiday dinner party I wanted to find everything from one source – paper goods, fine china and gifts for guests that were fun and special that I could use again. Insert the help from Kate Spade. They have an amazing collection of fine china that is elegant with beautiful graphics, place cards that are unique, wine glass numbers that you can use at multiple soirees you host and I was even able to find gifts for everyone on my dinner party list.


When I sit down to design a tabletop I write out everything I’d love to do with the table (flowers, something unexpected, possibly a menu, centerpiece around the flowers, etc). This gets my “Let’s do this!” attitude into gear! Sometimes you have to turn to others to help you create your vision.


Holiday Flowers | Sacramento Street


For the flowers, Natalie Bowen and I created an arrangement that was white, whimsical and had a bit of holiday flair to it. It was placed in a large mint julep style vase to bring out the silver tones of the Kate Spade signature china. I personally love the mix of anemones with the greenery. More details on this arrangement coming up this week for our Blooms in Season post.

For the menus, I had envisioned from the beginning doing it in calligraphy. I reached out to Laura Hooper to execute these gorgeous menu’s that are beautiful enough to frame. You can easily create something similar with beautiful ivory paper and a gold pen – it most certainly doesn’t need to be done in calligraphy, but showing guests what they’ll be having is an added touch that guests don’t expect when coming to a dinner party.

To add a bit more whimsy to the table I called in my dear friend Myka – she’s the master at creating anything you have envisioned in your head. I wanted to use different ribbons that would inspire guests because each piece could be used to wrap a gift. I personally love wrapping all of my gifts in white, silver and gold. And then to round everything out we paired a pewter runner and charcoal napkins from La Tavola Linens – my go-to source for all of my dinner parties.

Now it’s time for you to pop open some bubbly, host your own party, and pick out a few gifts for your friends and family. The holidays go quickly, but just remember two things - enjoy yourself each moment and go into it with a “Let’s do this” attitude and it will all work out. Later today I’ll be sharing my favorite gifts from Kate Spade!
