I'm back!!!  I had such a great time on the west coast.  The weather was amazing, the people were so friendly and I got to explore the great city of San Francisco.  The picture above was from the day that the lovely Rebecca took me to the Japanese tea garden, located in the Golden Gate park.  The key to dressing in San Francisco is layers - it can be scorching one minute and then freezing the next!  I'm wearing a dress from All Saints, leather jacket from Emu and pyrrha necklaces.  I also treated myself to some new frames when I was in NYC (McQueen - swoon)...

Here are my awesome hosts - Rebecca and Scott in Sonoma.  The California style is truly laid back - I'm wearing a Scotch & Soda linen top, a French Connection bikini top and Kersh shorts.  This was considered "dressed up".  I can't wait to go back...SLJ branch on the west coast?!

One more day and I'm heading out on vacation!  I'm going to NYC first to order the Giles and Brother fall collectionI've seen the line sheets and it looks AMAZING!  The first group is called Dark Glamour - think sirens, sorceresses and goddesses.  Oh yeah, I might be placing a lot of personal pieces in this order.  

After my showroom appointment, I meeting up with The Shiny Squirrel (Jessica) for lunch.  Her showroom is responsible for all of the new fabulous pieces we've been carrying.  If you don't follow her on facebook or instagram, you should.  Her pictures are to die for.  

Jessica suggested that we meet at Freemans for lunch - yes please! 
Now all I have to do is pack.  I'm planning on bringing mostly black and white, some denim, and layers, since the second half of my trip will bring me to San Francisco!  I have to bring the Corey Lynn Calter jumpsuit pictured at the top of the page -it's too cute to leave home!
