End of Summer Blues

Blue maxi dress

Dress: H&M | Leather Jacket: Muubaa (similar on sale) | Shoes: Alexander Wang | Sunglasses: D&G | Necklace: Forever 21 | Bracelets: gorjana c/o, Colombia | Rings: Colombia, H&M, Tiffany & Co.

Can you believe it’s almost September? Seriously though…where did the summer go? We typically experience warm weather in San Francisco these next few months, so I’m looking for pieces that will transition easily into fall. That’s why I loved this dress when I spotted it at H&M a few days ago. Plus, for less than $20, it’s going to be the perfect maxi to take for my upcoming trip to Spain.

Speaking of Spain, I leave in two days (and I’m still not packed – oops!). I’m not sure how much blogging I’ll be doing while overseas for the next two weeks, but I’m going to definitely be snapping and sharing photos via Instagram, so please be sure to follow along (and give me tips on where to go, where to eat, etc!).

Who’s That Girl in the Jersey Tee?

 

Jersey Tee

T-Shirt: Poshmark (work) | Faux Leather Skirt: Nordstrom | Denim Jacket: Levi’s | Shoes: New Balance via Athleta | Purse: Zara | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

To celebrate my work’s latest big app update (available now in the App Store!), the entire company received these fun and on-trend custom t-shirts, which we all wore to work on the same day. I paired mine with my new faux leather skirt and sneakers for a sporty, yet polished look. I was normally going to wear this purse as a crossbody, but decided to see what it would look like as a fanny pack and, I must say, I don’t mind it one bit!

Go, Team Posh!

Balayage Hair Makeover

Hair balayage from Population Salon

Dress: Nordstrom | Boots: Michael Kors | Hair: Population Salon in San Francisco

I did it! And I love it!

I woke up early this past Saturday morning with butterflies in my stomach because I knew that in the afternoon, I was going to be staring at a slightly different person in the mirror. You could say that my hair has been my security blanket over the years – always dark brown, long, and “safe.” But I have to say that as soon as I stepped into Population, I felt at ease and even more so when I met my stylist and salon owner, Brian. The salon was busy, but organized and I felt welcomed by all those who worked there. Brian proceeded to dry cut my hair (faster, yet more precise than I’ve ever seen someone cut it, by the way) and took his time carefully executing his balayage technique. Four hours later, I was transformed and smiling from ear to ear.

Ladies (and those men who may be reading this), if you’re searching for a new salon, don’t hesitate to call Population. Bonus: They’re opening up their second salon in the Mission in a few weeks!
