Spring is starting to peek through! Here in the Bay Area, it feels like winter in the morning, and then temperatures rise to high 60’s and low 70’s during the day. This means we get to wear our winter into spring outfits. A spring dress can be layered with a jacket, and a spring handbag can be paired with any outfit. Of course, spring nail polish can brighten up a winter day, and add a little bit of sunshine when the clouds come in.

These spring nail polish colors, and this spring top coat, are perfect to wear right now; and they happen to be hot on the streets! Hobo handbags are a hot silhouette right now, as well as small top handle bags. You can start wearing these spring handbag styles now! Love that!

Of course, since it isn’t technically spring yet, and the evenings are quite cool, a good lug sole shoe is in order to keep from slipping on icy sidewalks. Love this pair of lug sole loafers. They are both practical and on trend. After all, the 90’s are still a hot decade of influence as we move through 2022.

Well, not much has changed since last week! What was hot last Friday, is pretty much still hot today! Everyone is loving hobo bags, classic cut jeans, warm and puffy jackets, spring nail polish, and these fabulous, faux fur boots which happen to be on major sale. Love that!

These are all great items to stock up on now since hobo bags, pouch bags, classic cut jeans, and spring nail polish will carry us all from winter into spring. We still get cold weather in the early spring, so these faux fur boots are perfect to get now since they are on sale and can be used for several months, as well as saved for next winter. This puffy jacket is also perfect for right now and into early spring. After all, the groundhog said six more weeks of winter!

Today is National Wear Red Day, so in order to raise awareness for heart disease, be sure to rock some red. I will be wearing my red hobo bag. It’s perfect for National Wear Red Day, plus, it’s lucky for Lunar New Year. Love!

NYFW is a week away, and I will be covering it from home again this season as several of the shows will be digital as opposed to in person. If you want to watch too, be sure to head over to to create an account and check out the schedule. Designers from New York will be showing their fall/winter 2022/23 collections. I will be sharing my favorite looks via Instagram, and on the blog.

Classic and casual winter look

It’s that time of year when temperatures drop overnight, and then the sun comes out! When the sun comes out, we get to enjoy 60-degree weather and lots of sunshine. Love that!

This layered, classic and casual look was perfect the other day for walking around in the mild, sunny weather we have been having. The layers are warm enough for sixty-degree weather, yet thin enough to wear underneath a winter coat when the temperatures drop in the evening hours, or to wear early in the morning when temperatures hover in the thirties and forties.

My foot injury is still healing, so I wore my comfy, go-to sneakers so that I could easily walk around Santana Row. It worked out well since I was able to window shop and also get a little bit of exercise without pain in my foot. We ate lunch at Zazil and I enjoyed the cheese enchiladas with mole sauce. They have really good mole sauce! If you haven’t been to Zazil, I highly recommend trying it out. They have ample outdoor seating, and the indoor seats have really good ventilation. We enjoyed our meal and overall experience. Love!
