Tuesdays in the Park

Outfit Details:
Cardigan – Target (last year)
White Tank – Old Navy ($6 Super Sale!)
Pencil Skirt – Zara ($10 Sale!)
T-Strap Heels – Franco Sarto ($40)

Such a wonderful day here in SF today! I woke up and knew it would be.  I saw the sunrise at 6am and it was already pretty warm.  Ahhh, it might just be the Indian weather we all been craving for here! 
My coworker Cathy & I decided to walk near this little park near our work to relax and have some Baskin Robins.  I treated her to a Cappuccino Blast and she blamed me after for being so full!  I told her to start her fashion blog because she has an amazing collection of clothes from JCrew, Banana Republic, Free People, so on and so on. I even volunteered to be her photographer.  Will have to wait and see.  For now, her focus is on being creative with her writing and poetry, check her out here. 

As far as my outfit for today, just another work outfit I know, sorry!  Thought I’d bring this lovely cardigan out since it has a nice color and pretty tropical. I really love how this Zara pencil skirt accentuate a woman's curve. Cathy bought one too! 

<---My more than a leg shot! Don't you love her shoes?

Sheer on Sheer

Outfit Details:
Sheer Collared Blouse – Blue Bird
Sheer Top – Forever 21
Pants – Zara
 Purse – Cynthia Rowley
T-Strap Heels – Franco Sarto

I really love sheer tops, but had to figure out how to wear it at work so it can be more corporate appropriate.  So, why I thought I'd try a little bit of sheer on sheer action. 

Café Metropol
Should have posted this last week but forgot to.  Anyway, I found this little spot to have a drink with my co-worker.  It was my first time here and I was very impressed with the flower decoration inside the frame.  It looks so awesome and I think I might have to try and decorate my living room with something like it.  We had a couple drinks, I chose a cocktail called Lychee Lei , and the bartender made it pretty strong!  Will be coming back for more happy hour here!

My New Love

Outfit Details:
Cardigan – H&M
Skirt – Zara
Wedges (Selena) – Steve Madden
Leopard Bag (similar one click here) – Cynthia Rowley

It’s finally sunny here in San Francisco.  Took a break with my coworker to get some Toffee Nut Mocha Frap from good old Starbucks, and a couple photo shots since I hardly get any time after work. I can't believe we're half way through August!! 

Since August is my birth month, I did a little splurging this weekend.  Yes, BAD ME! But I finally was able to grab this gorgeous leopard bag (My New Love) that I had my eye on two weeks ago.  I didn’t get it the first time because there was only one and this lady grabbed it first.  So, I told myself if this purse is here in 2 weeks I will purchase it.  What do you know, I guess the bag goddesses was thinking of me..haha!  Along with the my new bag, I found two lovely shoes, a cardigan w/ the elbow patch, and my leopard gloves.  H&M has some fun and classy Fall collection that I can’t wait to buy next time.  I really wanted all the sweaters and blazer w/ the elbow patches! So far, I have one of the four! 

Just want to say THANK YOU all for the lovely comments.  I really appreciate each and every one of them!

Stitch Fix/Rack Habit

Outfit Details:
Dress & Top - Stitch Fix

I decided to try this new online service based out here in San Francisco, thanks to Britt & Whit for introducing me to this online service.  Got the package last week but never had the time to try them on and take pictures.  But here it is!  

All you have to do is sign up and fill out a quick survey about your style and how much you’re willing to pay for certain items like dresses, etc.  Then pay $20, which will be credited to any item you choose, and shipping is always free. You will receive five items to choose from.  The items I got I haven't seen in stores yet.  So if you love shopping online, why not try them out! Just click here to get started!  (Someone told me they needed a referral. You can use my name Shella! Thanks Alisha for trying & letting me know!)

Hope everyone is starting the week off to a good start! Also, thank you to everyone that has been leaving comments, I really appreciate them & love checking out all the blogs!
