Norcal Road Trip!

It was a beautiful week for a road trip!  The sun was shining most of the days that we were in Petaluma and San Francisco.  Petaluma is so  lush and green this time of year.

The town has also been known as the World’s Egg Basket.  Chicken art in forms of paintings, figurines, etc are displayed in many of its downtown boutiques 🙂

Birds of a feather...

SO I had to include the photo of my feathery friends that I met along the way.

We ate some amazing sandwiches at Lucchesi’s Deli.  Highly recommended!  They also make a mighty dumpling soup and amazing chili!  Monday night at The Great American Music Hall was epic for Eagles of Death Metal record release show.  If you haven’t heard their music, be sure to check out their version of Save a Prayer.  It’s soooo good!!!  It was a gorgeous venue with that San Fran Victorian charm!  I went as a cat. Meow! 😉

It was a sold out show and packed from floor to floor!  Gram Rabbit was the opening band and also rocked it out!  Photos from the show can be seen on Crowd Album.  Towards the end of the trip, Posh and I did some birdwatching in my traveling Tieks.  It was a great weekend mix of music, traveling, and relaxation!  I hope everyone is having a beautiful week!  Besos y besos!!

Frisco Finds & Styling Tips!

On my recent NorCal work trip, I ventured Union Square & Market Street during down time.  I needed a new pair of professional black flats & went with pointy-toed croc print loafers.  My next Frisco finds were a few scarves.  Meanwhile, LA is in a hundred degree heat wave. Ha!  The white one looked so cheeky next to my Sonya Dakar makeup bag. The no makeup-makeup look with bright lip is one I’ve been wearing a lot. So I also picked up a set of creme cheek blushes that I’ll cover in future blog 🙂  I’m a big fan of designer, Anita Singh, and could not be without her chunky hoop earrings.  They have a vintage quality.  Also found a few gold chokers, geometric statement piece, a cool ring, light-catching pink drop earrings, bangles, & popsicle orange belt.

Couldn’t resist the 2-for-1 pre-Labor Day sales!  I’ve been dying for a two-toned choker, & finally got my hands on one. No pun intended 😉 The other gold choker is curved & drapes around the natural curves of your neck for an elegant, yet VERY subtle, Cleopatra look 😉  When I style shop I look for pieces that can be worn a number of ways. Depending on what the day brings, I style in three’s! I generally go with 3 of the following for each outfit:  1) a choker (or earrings/scarf/handbag/accessory etc), 2) belt, and 3) shoes. I think style for: a) top b) middle c) bottom.  One could have on a plain t-shirt/jeans and the outfit be turned up a few notches simply by adding those three bits and bobbles 🙂 Have a great weekend, everyone!

Moschi Rice Candy & San Francisco Treats!

This Powell/Market trolley wasn’t going anywhere soon, as it was stuck in its tracks!

Missing San Francisco so much already! I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite photos from my trip :)))  I spent most of my free days walking around, as there is always so much culture and charm to be absorbed in SF!  I began each trek with coffee, my fave green Chucks, Canon Rebel, and off I went!

I began each trek day in my fave green high top Chucks!

From the galleries, to the trolleys & trains, to the music venues, Indonesian Film Festival 2015, Union Square shopping destinations, and VM World at Moscone Convention Center, I was in my element last week! One of my favorite times of year to visit Union Square is around Christmas.  Hopefully I will return there in December! XO ~Kelle
