I love this time of year because there are so many reasons so get dressed up!! I found this Jovani dress from edressme and immediately knew that I had to have it for the holidays. I mean, how cute would this dress be for a Christmas card photo or for a fancy holiday party? This shade of red has the most gorgeous sheen to it and the silhouette is so classy and feminine. It is a definite must-have for every woman’s closet.
I fell in love with Bliss Tulle and their incredibly whimsical skirts years ago. It was always a challenge to find the perfect top to pair with the skirts. They had to be the right length, fit and needed to compliment the beauty of the skirt. When Bliss Tulle announced that they were making delicate lace tops that would match the beauty of their skirts, it was a total game-changer. The tops have a slight stretch in them that makes them perfect for what they are typically made for: events and photoshoots. They also come in several different styles and colors, with this one being the newest from the range. I love the scalloped-edges, the bell sleeves and the pale nude shade that this one comes in. I paired the pale nude top with Bliss Tulle’s newest skirt style, The Willow. The Willow also has a slit in it, which I have always wanted in the tulle skirts! This all pale nude look is so elegant and perfect for engagement photos, bridal showers, birthday parties, etc. etc. etc.

Patrick has spent the last 3 years taking the CFA exam, all while excelling in his career, landing his dream job, giving me his very little free time and agreeing to be a part-time model (okay but can you blame me for wanting a million pictures of him?). If you are familiar with the exam then you know how proud I am to say he passed the 3rd and final exam after 3 years and countless hours of studying. Every single day he amazes me more and inspires me in the most powerful ways. We are so glad it is OVER and we have our weekends back for good!!!
Sorry for the random mushy love post, but I am so proud I can’t contain it! I just made reservations at Acquerello in Russian Hill to celebrate. Have any of you been?! I heard it’s incredible!
There is nothing better than seeing hard work pay off. I hope you are all having a great week! Work hard, then play harder.
All my love! xx
I personally love Monday’s. Monday’s are “my” days. My typical routine is that I wake up, clean up the apartment a bit from the weekend while coffee is brewing and then sit at my desk to make a do-to list for the day/week. It is the most essential time for me to get organized for the week ahead and start off on the right page.
My first priority is to catch up on emails. I try my best to answer everyone in less than 48-hours. I swear this is one things that everyone can work on and will help set you apart from the rest. It makes you easier to work with, more professional, the list goes on and on. Also – if you make sure to reply right away, nothing will be able to get skipped over or have a chance to slip through the cracks. It is one of the most important tips I can offer people. Be reliable!!
I’m going to be catching up on emails until I head to my antigravity yoga class at noon. If you haven’t tried it you have to!! It is yoga, stretching and a visit to the chiropractor all in one. Try it and thank me later.
