My current fave trend: Paperbag pants

This trend has been around for a few months now, but I hope it never goes away! Paperbag pants (and shorts) are seriously the comfiest and easiest to wear. No more belly donuts over low-cut jeans, or camel-toes of high-waists. Now women everywhere can enjoy a flattering high-cut, cinched waist with the looseness of pjs. Aahhhh... what dreams are made of.

The perfect summer OTS shirt dress

I'm officially obsessed with this Forever21 off-the-shoulder striped shirt dress - I've literally worn it all weekend. The great thing is that although it's a summer dress, it can easily be worn with a cute leather or jean jacket for cooler weather (as it's been around 60 degrees here in San Francisco).

The yellow one-piece

You guys, I found the CUTEST little one-piece swimsuit, and it's only $15.99!! I've been searching for the perfect one-piece - most I've found are too high in the front or the back, or cut too low around the hips, or show through too much. But not this one.

Comfort + Style with Clarks at Macys

Ok babes, let's get real: I've never owned a pair of pumps. Why? I always just figured that if I was going to wear heels and be uncomfortable, I'd go BIG. And if I wanted to be comfortable, I'd go flat.

Hello 2018

2017 was an epic year. The things that were good were really good, and the things that were bad were pretty darn bad. Some things that happened this year:

The LTK wall in SF

Remember when the LIKEtoKNOW.it wall was in SF? No? That’s because it way back in late August (and it’s already gone). Went and loved it, but failed to post about it… until now!

And the rose goes to... this jumpsuit

I was instantly drawn to this jumpsuit. I mean, love-at-first-sight style. Like, it would've gotten the first impression rose if it was a contestant on the Bachelorette.

A romper for summer? Yes you can!

I've been a fan of rompers for a while, but I never thought I could pull of the trend - most rompers I tried on were too tight and too saggy in all the wrong places (saggy diaper butt anyone?). But then, I found it: the right-fit romper. It was definitely a hallelujah moment.

Why every woman needs a jumpsuit in her life

Jumpsuits are magical. A cute jumpsuit is literally the only piece of clothing you have to put on before walking out the door (though don't forget shoes!). You can accessorize a jumpsuit if you want, but you don't have to, and you'll still look put-together.

Blooms + tassels + first time bloggers

One of my favorite things to do is take photos of bloggers who haven't worked with a professional photographer before. The vibe is a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and endless possibility, which is intoxicating. It's so fun to answer questions and guide them through the experience, while also watching progress into getting comfortable, having fun, and finding the rhythm of being in front of a professional camera.

Mixing fashion with killer views

I love it when bloggers want to step out of the box and try something different, so when Christina (classtige.com) asked if there were any city views where we could shoot, I knew just the place!

Mom goals with Dita

I love working with new bloggers because I get to help them feel comfortable in front of a professional's lens for the first time, and to figure out their esthetic. Last week, I got the chance to photograph Dita, a young, super fashionable mom who recently moved to San Francisco from Stockholm (@sf.stockholm).

Styling with Lauren: Uniqlo all day

Lauren of pinkonthecheek.com recently styled a full outfit just from Uniqlo! Honestly, I kind of thought that Uniqlo only had super casual activewear, but apparently, they now also have seriously stylish pieces for the office and going out, called the Drape Collection. I love the way that Lauren styled boyfriend jeans with a long blazer - it's so comfortable but looks put together.

Winter in SF

Unlike my NYFW experience, winter weather in San Francisco is generally what you'd call Fall weather anywhere else in the country. So what does that mean? Sweaters and warm drinks and scarves, oh my! Amanda of Mela Moda wore the epitome of this season's winter sweater for this shoot. It was comfy over-sized, over-the-shoulder, neutral color, and had bell sleeves. What more could you want?
