{Draped In The Bay} Reversible Sweater

posted by on 2013.06.17, under Outfit Of The Day




HAPPY MONDAY loves! Hope you all had a lovely weekend, as for me I just got back to LA  after a restful weekend in the bay area, we surprised my dad for Father’s day. I grew up in the bay most of my life, 18 + years, and I can say that I left my heart there!  There’s something about the crisp air, eclectic people, childhood friends, and mama’s home cooking that fills my heart with joy. I grew up in a small town called Danville, about an hour away from the city, and rarely do we find enough time to explore San Francisco when we go home for the weekend. But this time around the hubs & I decided that take advantage of the gorgeous weather (HERE), and stay with our cousins whos place is walking distance to the Ferry Building. We woke up bright and early Friday morning to take a stroll along the bay (wore my running sneakers HERE), and to meet my photographer friend Ryan Chua, who shot these images, for a delicious brunch.

I recieved this draped sweater last week, and have been waiting to wear it for the perfect moment! The best part about this sweater is that it is reversible as seen HERE. I’m always looking to maximize the usage of certain pieces in my closet, and the fact that this sweater is reversible just made it 100 times more amazing!

Anyways we have a VERY exciting project launching {hopefully} today, so make sure to come back on the blog in a few hours to see what its about! Wishing you a great week and a beautiful day!!

Hi Doll!!!!
I want to ask you something, I hope you can help me.

I have my college graduation soon, and I want something sweet and clear for my dress, like White or Cream colors, I would like a lot if you could help me to find something like that and advise me how to style it….

I love all what you do and admire you so much xo
