White Sands National Monument


White Sands National Monument is definitely one of the most magical places I have ever been.  So happy to finally be sharing these pics!  Although, I don't think the images do the landscape total justice. We decided to break up our drive from Santa Fe to Marfa with a stop at this incredible National park.  It worked out well, as it was about the halfway point, and we felt like we had two exciting destinations ahead of us instead of just one.

Day Dress


This summer has been abnormally warm in the bay area.  We saw record high temperatures over labor day weekend, and although it is cooling down the warm weather seems like it will stretch well into Fall.  As we are full swing into September, I am definitely not ready for big sweaters or booties yet.  I always like to have a few good go to pieces that work in the warm temperature but can transition well from Summer to Fall.  I recently purchased this long sleeve embroidered dress from Free People and basically want to wear it every weekend.

Emmy Red Carpet

This year's Emmy red carpet was pretty impressive.  In the 6 years I have been posting red carpet re-caps I think this was my favorite at the Emmys.  It was quite difficult to narrow down to a top ten.  It really was a star studded event this year, and almost every one turned up in show stopping looks.  I didn't see many dresses that I didn't like.  I also loved that some of casts or onscreen partnerships walked the carpet together, including my personal favorite, Claire Foy and Matt Smith from the Crown (already counting down to season 2)!  I didn't notice any obvious trends, it seemed the gowns that went down the carpet were quite the eclectic mix of colors, styles, and designers.  Maybe that is why it felt like a tough task this year, having to pick favorites from a sea of standouts.

Big Sur


One of the things I love most about living in the Bay Area, are the beautiful places that are accessible within a 1-2 hour drive.  I also absolutely love the dramatic coastline.  Growing up on Maui, I have always been drawn to the ocean.  Discovering different viewpoints of the Pacific never gets old.  Some of the most beautiful scenic views of the coastline I have ever seen, are those on the drive from Carmel to Big Sur.

Basics and a He(art) Wall


For those of you who follow LIKEtoKNOW.it on Instagram, have probably noticed they are traveling to different cities and installing really fun He(art) walls.  Once each wall is installed it will be up for viewing and snapping pics for about a month.  I recently stopped by the San Francisco installment, which will only be up for another week until September 17th!
