Man oh man, it has been a WHILE. Summer seriously flew by (yes, September counts as Summer in San Francisco), and I’ve been running around all over the place for the past few months. Summer in the city was so much fun – Outside Lands, Oyster Fest and plenty of park days – but it was a blast to sneak away to Tahoe, Vegas and Chicago, too.
While there’s nothing like summer, Fall has always been my absolute favorite season. Maybe it’s because I’m a Libra baby, but Fall always ushers in the feeling of starting over for me. I have the urge to set goals for the year ahead, make plans for the holidays and of course, revamp my wardrobe.
Summer is here in San Francisco, meaning – while there are pockets of sunshine – most of our days are pretty much blanketed in fog. I’m finding myself dreaming of summer somewhere a little sunnier – Charleston, perhaps? Every summer for the past lord-knows-how-many years, we’ve spent summertime in South Carolina with my cousins, and we always take a day trip (or two!) to Charleston. I’m missing the Southern sunshine a little today, so this week’s 10 Things to Love is a little inspired by that special place.

Yep. Those are bangles that look like hair ties.
Fashion publicist Katie Schloss founded Three Jane NY about a year ago, and is most recognized for The Map Necklace — a 14K gold plate that can have any location engraved on it. Your childhood home, where you had your first kiss, your favorite place in the world, etc., etc.
I love her line, and as I follow her on Instagram (obsessed, much?), I’ve really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes peaks at the recent pieces she’s been working on. Especially this bubble wand necklace. GIMME.

I am so excited to have a week and a half off of work that I get to spend in Portland with my family. All I plan on doing is shopping around, watching movies, baking Christmas cookies, maybe doing a little shopping and spending a lot of time with my kitties. Okay, I guess that’s still a lot of stuff…but I guess the point is that it will be relaxing.
I hope that everyone gets to enjoy a cozy “winter break” with friends and family wherever home may be!

But seriously…give it to me.
Also, can we just talk about Chris Benz’s partnership with Cambridge? LOVE the lavender and white bag.
Well, since I’m trying to live frugally until the holidays to save money for prezzies, I guess i’ll just have to dream of all of these amazing goodies from Target and Neiman Marcus’ collab with the CFDA. I’m so excited it’s all finally out — although I do hope that all of those weird commercials during Revenge are coming to a close soon…I am so not into it! Maybe someday i’ll be able to pedal around on an Alice + Olivia bike and bake hipster cookies…
