Wearing: gold statement earrings / Chanel lipstick / white lace dress (under $100!!) / white tank top (under dress for coverage) / white tennis shorts (under dress for coverage) / blue and gold bead bracelet stack / gold and turquoise cuff / white watch / Chanel fall nail polish / Chloe bag / espadrilles (old, similar pair under $100 here)

I left my He(art) in San Francisco. Ah, this conjures up visions of Tony Bennett belting out our city’s unofficial theme song. It also conjures up a modern-day vision of LikeToKnow.it’s heart in a circle logo; which you might be familiar with from Instagram.

The summer of 2017 has been the summer of likes; Instagram likes that is. The LikeToKnow.it team has been traveling around the country installing pop-up wall’s in all of our major cities. These pop-up walls last about one month, and offer a colorful background for taking photos worthy of all the likes on Instagram. Like it? Ha! I love it!

In case you are reading this and wondering what in the world LikeToKnow.it is, it is an app where you can shop your favorite outfits, products, beauty products, home, products etc. from LikeToKnow.it enabled photos found on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. If you screenshot a photo bearing the LikeToKnow.it logo in the bottom right-hand corner, the photo and product details will appear in your LikeToKnow.it app with shoppable links. You can learn more about it from this post I wrote in April.

The San Francisco wall was officially launched on August 16, 2017. To celebrate, Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun and I went up to the city for meetings, lunch, and of course, photos in front of the wall! The San Francisco He(art) wall features so many pretty colors; but I have to admit I am in love with the portion bearing blue and green tones. Isn’t it fabulous!

You too can take your Instagram worthy photo in front of the wall; but hurry! It will only be there until September 16, 2017. The wall is located on the Palmer’s SF building on the  corner of Fillmore and Clay. Since it is in the Fillmore shopping district, you can combine your wall visit with lunch or brunch; and some serious shopping! Love! Or should I say; Like!

So I have rambled on about this fabulous wall, but can we change gears for a minute and chat about this dress?! In anticipation of the wall, I purchased this white dress so that I would not clash with the color palette; which was still a secret when I was shopping for a wall-worthy ensemble!

I was thrilled to find this dress. It is under $100 and turned out to be extremely comfortable. What threw me for a loop was when a woman walking on Fillmore street stopped to tell me how much she liked my dress! This does not happen often, so when it does, I know I need to re-wear the dress as often as possible!

If you are looking for a little white dress, which can be a fabulous go-to piece in your closet, this one is under $100; so you can’t go wrong! Plus, my Mom accused me of spending $400+ on it, so it looks like it cost much more then it did. I am not sure she believed me when I told her the price! haha

The dress is a little sheer, so I wore white tennis shorts and a white tank top underneath to make sure everything was covered. Worked like a charm!

Let me know if you stop at the wall in San Francisco! If you have snapped photos in front of one of the other LikeToKnow.it walls around the country this summer, I would love to see the pictures! Drop your link below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Walking into fall with ModCloth

Wearing items c/o of ModCloth: Shirtdress / Mustard Shoulder Bag / Brown Cardigan Sweater / Green Western Style Blouse / Plaid Midi Skirt

Can you believe it is almost the fall season? Despite the fact that it is technically still the summer season, we are getting cool morning fog, and school starts this week; so technically it feels like fall has started!

This is the time of year when I love to transition my wardrobe from summer into fall. I love wearing the hottest fall trends while staying comfortable in the warm summer temperatures. ModCloth has a such a great collection of early fall merchandise; it makes it easy to rock the new fall trends while staying comfortable in the summer weather.

ModCloth has so many amazing pieces for walking into the fall season. Plus, it is so easy to find something which fits perfectly! ModCloth offers sizes for every body type imaginable; with sizes ranging from XXS to 4XL. Nothing makes me feel more positive about my body then knowing I can find my size!  It really is empowering.

I love seeing clothing on real people, rather than professional models. ModCloth has taken the concept of seeing the clothing on real people by including a Style Gallery on ModCloth.com. It is so cool to be able to see the clothing on multiple body-types; you instantly know what it will look like on you!

If you are having trouble putting an outfit together, or finding the right look for an event, ModCloth.com has Mod Stylists available who can help you shop the site. It is like being in a store, without having to dodge crowds or try to grab a Sales Assistant’s attention. Mod Stylists are readily available online, and you don’t have to dodge any crowds for their help. It’s so luxurious!

You can visit ModCloth.com for more information about the uber cool Style Gallery, or for personal assistance from a Mod Stylist. Now, let’s chat about my favorite pieces for walking into fall from ModCloth.

I absolutely adore separates for the early fall season; also known as pre-fall. The outfit pictured above is a great collection of separates to help get from summer into fall. The cardigan is a classic must-have for foggy mornings, and cool evenings. It can be worn over jeans and a tee, a summer slip dress, and then worked into a fall ensemble like the one I am wearing. This cardigan is a must-have workhorse for transitioning from summer into fall! Love!

This western style green blouse is a great piece for fall. The western trend is emerging, and in 2018, will prove to be an important one. I plan on wearing it with jeans on casual days, and with this skirt all season long! It will be fabulous in early spring too with a denim skirt and slides. Love it!

Can we talk about this plaid skirt for a moment? It really is the centerpiece of my summer into fall wardrobe from ModCloth. This skirt can also be paired with a linen tee on warm days, along with mules or slides. When the weather gets colder, it will look amazing with over the knee boots, and a cozy sweater for a casual look, or for a more dressy look, tights, heels, and a wool blazer. There are so many possibilities with this skirt! That must be why ModCloth named it the “Hero Skirt.” It is a wardrobe hero!

I truly believe for any summer into fall wardrobe to be complete, one must have separates to integrate into one’s summer wardrobe, as well as one fabulous dress. Oh this dress! It has an on trend 1970s vibe; which is a hot trend for fall. It also has a slimming effect, as well as offers a comfortable fit. I am in love! I wore this dress back to school shopping with my kids, and my mom told me she had a dress like it in the 1970s. Rocking a fall trend while staying comfortable in summer weather; pre-fall fashion mission accomplished!

Since I am a handbag superfan, you might be wondering why I have not mentioned this cute little shoulder bag yet! Well, you know me, save the best for last! I love this bag! It has a built-in wallet system with four separate compartments. This bag can be worn over the shoulder for a 1970s vibe, or it can be worn cross body for comfort, and ease of use. I have been wearing it both ways, and love it!

There are many more pieces from ModCloth.com which are perfect for transitioning from summer into fall. Be sure to visit ModCloth.com to see everything they have right now!

Stripes for fall 2017

stripes fall 2017 stripes fall 2017 fall 2017 it bags stripes fall 2017 stripes fall 2017 stripes fall 2017

wearing: gold statement earrings / Chanel lipstick / fall stripe blouse / gold-tone bracelet / black leather watch / pale blue nail polish / fall dark rinse girlfriend jeans / red shoulder bag / fall suede booties (so comfy!!)

Stripes fall 2017 is a hot trend which started on the fall 2017 runways and has hit the streets for the upcoming cool weather season. I absolutely love stripes; especially when they are mixed up and going in all different directions. haha That is how they were shown on the runways!!

This stripes blouse for fall 2017 has turned into a great late summer, early fall piece. The fabric is lightweight, so it is easy to wear when the temperatures are in the 70’s. It is supposed to be a one shoulder top, but it appears to have slide up my shoulder when we took these pictures. It still looks cute! I just love this blouse!

I wore this outfit to meet up with my friend Laura from Have-Need-Want at Santana Row on Wednesday evening. It was fun for us both to take a little mommy break and get some adult time to ourselves! Big thanks to our hubbies who fed our kids dinner while we ate out!!

We met at 5pm in order to attend Kendra Scott’s fall collection kick-off party. Oh my! This collection is to-die-for! Watch for an upcoming post all about the fall collection. I really love it!

After the party, Laura and I ate a yummy dinner at Left Bank, and then window shopped around the Row. We did end up splurging a little bit at Sugarfina. So much for trying to lose ten pounds! Haha, those pounds are never going to come off me!

Stay tuned! Next week I will post my recap of the Kendra Scott fall kick-off party and show you all of my favorites from her beautiful new fall collection!
