Loving all-black this season for all new reasons. Of course, it’s gloomy outside, so I’m immediately drawn to darker colors, but the ladies above pull this look off with so much style and chicness. Like Rachel Zoe (above left), wearing gold metal accents with her fashion-forward black ensemble. And in the above right photo, she is pairing a bold striped sweater with nude and black flats, breaking up the black with neutrals. And the last photo shows mixing of greys, navys and blacks, and most importantly… sequins! I love this look. So chic and not at all “goth”.
So, the day is quickly approaching (you know, the day when I get to visit San Francisco for the very first time) — less than two months! And I am so unprepared! I’ve gathered billions of links and ideas in my head, but I haven’t sat down and actually planned anything. Which actually started me thinking, is it ok not to plan?
I’ve never had a vacation that was agenda-free. My parents (mostly my dad) were big planners, everything scheduled so that we got the most out of our trips. But maybe there’s something to feeling out the trip and what we want to do day-by-day. What are your thoughts?
Oh, and what are your favorite spots in San Fran?! We have five days, so even if I don’t plan the whole trip, I could probably just plan a couple of days :)
Y’all know that I live in Chicago, right? Well, I bet you didn’t know that I live in one of the coolest neighborhoods with amazing design and home furnishing boutiques! It’s like a melting pot for style, antique, funky, modern, and traditional. And one of the newest shops in my neighborhood is Haymaker, a haven for local designers and really a showcase for them too! These photos do not do it justice, though, because it’s so amazing inside. And the pieces for sale are amazing too! I bought a poster on my first visit and I plan on many more trips soon! If you’re in the Chicago area, you have to check this place out!
