Baseball Tee: Madewell (similar here), pants: Jcrew (old), Shoes: random shop in Buenos Aires, lipstick: NARS schiap

My stripe obsession continues! This time I paired a comfy baseball tee with some pastel pants. Even though it is officially fall, the weather here is still in the 90's (global warming much?) so I am taking advantage and dressing in bright summery colors. 

Museum sundays

Posted on: Thursday, September 20, 2012

This past weekend we took baby O to the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. If you have never been then slap yourself....ok that was a joke, but really you should go next time you find yourself in San Francisco. The building itself is worth a visit, it is completely made out of perforated copper which will turn green with time due to oxidation (thank you AP Chemistry!) and it will make the museum blend in with the park. We caught the last day of the "Real to Real" photography exhibit. If you are not into museums and/or art then you should still go and ride the elevator up to the observation tower (entrance is free!) and enjoy 360 degree (and one of the best) views of the city. Or if you are baby O just go up there to run around and have mommy chase you in front of strangers.

Inspired stripes

Dress Anthropologie (anniversary gift from the husband), shoes Nine West via Ross (on sale for $15, score!)

I have a slight obsession with stripes so when I spotted this dress on one of my favorite blogs Gal Meets Glam I was inspired to recreate the same look. It was the ideal dress to wear for my 5 year anniversary weekend in San Francisco...and by "weekend" I really mean one night away from my baby O. I bet you are asking yourself "You have been married 5 years already, but you look SO young!" (ok ok...I know I am the only one asking myself that). Well I am going to tell you a little love story that goes like this:

Act 1. Girl goes to college...meets cute but quiet guy in the dorm hallway...helps him find his dorm room a few doors down because he may or may not have imbibed in great quantities of beer soda.
Act 2. Girl and cute/quiet boy become friends
Act 3. Girl and boy go to a house party and recreate a Beatles song:

Well, my heart went "boom", 
When I crossed that room, 
And I held her hand in mine... 

Whoa, we danced through the night, 
And we held each other tight, 
And before too long I fell in love with her. 
Now I'll never dance with another, 
Since I saw her standing there.

Act 4. Cute boy tells girl he loves her (while wearing a toga...oh college I miss you!) and girl reciprocates the feeling.
Act 5. Boy borrows a suit jacket and asks the girls parents for her hand in marriage, they toast with soda (no, really they did...boy wasn't 21 yet)
Act 6. Boy proposes, girl says YES
Act 7. Girl marries cute boy from dorm hallway!

Many acts to be added to this little story, but so far I am a big fan.

All about dresses...

Posted on: Thursday, September 13, 2012

This is my first "outfit of the day" style's a little scary to write about yourself and there is a little voice in my head that sings "you're soooo vain..." when I take pictures of myself and the clothes I wear. But what is life without fears? So here goes....

Dress JCrew (on sale!), belt Anthropologie (old), sunglasses (stolen from husband), lipstick  NARS schiap

This summer I became a dress lover. I am usually a jeans and top person, but dresses became my obsession this summer for two main reasons:

1. Have you ever worn pants in 100+ degree weather?'s not a pretty picture. But then I can't really wear shorts and a tank-top to work so what to do???? Dress to the rescue!

2. You know those mornings when your husband turns off your alarm clock but then doesn't tell you (or he does tell you but he forgets you are not 100% conscious at 5:30am)?? And then you have to run around like a madwoman getting yourself and the precious baby ready and the last thing you have time to do is put together a decent look?? (oh you don't have those kind of mornings? Ok big eye roll high five from me to you!) Dress to the rescue! Just put it on and add shoes and you are ready to go.
