This weekend, I’ve got a little bit of this and that to share; the sneaker trend that is happening now, a fab bomber find (on sale!), The Cashmere Sale, on now in Burlingame, and two inexpensive items, that will prove to be the best investments you make, this season!
White Sneaker Trend
It seems like everywhere I go these days, the white sneaker is there. Sure, Adidas Stan Smith’s have been around so long, they were my husbands go-to sneaker in the 80’s. I’m guessing many of you owned the iconic Reebok white aerobic shoe, about that time as well. These guys have made a comeback – this time as a street shoe, being worn with everything from denim, to tulle skirts.
Spotted last week at the Burbank Airport (left), and with a maxi skirt at The Grove (right).
Here in town, at a coffee/lunch spot.
Pair your look with a fab oversized bag, like Celine – or something there of, and off you go!

Trend Alert! The Bomber Jacket
It’s taken me a few months to warm up to the idea of a bomber jacket. Realizing the styling possibilities of this retro silhouette, I’ve now found many I love! I recently came across this versatile piece over at TopShop (HERE). Currently being price matched over at Nordstrom, I think the MA1 Bomber is a great piece for $60.00! In black and olive green, for reference, I’m wearing a size 6, here in the photo.
I also like the long style, if crop is not your thing (HERE)
The Cashmere Sale
This roving pop-up shop is currently in our neighborhood! In Burlingame thru December 10th, if you are a cashmere lover, you may want to take a look. The selection is HUGE, this is just a few of the new pieces for this year.
Gail can help you with anything you may need, she’ll even try pieces on for you!
I love the pom pom wrap (above left), and purchased it in the charcoal grey combo with black pom noms,
The pop-up shop can be busy, and overwhelming, but the ladies are so helpful! Wear easy to try on clothing, and allow yourself some time. Can’t make a decision on a piece? Black classic pieces are timeless, and you’ll wear them for years to come!
Don’t live in the Bay Area?

Small Investments with Huge Rewards
(both under $20.00!)
I lost my Beltaway, somewhere in my closet last weekend, and I have been at a loss all week. Amazon can’t get my replacement order to me soon enough. With today’s denim, full of wonderful stretch, our pants tend to fall down. The Beltaway keeps your pants right where they should be, with no belt poking out under your top!
Sidekicks Foldable Flats (HERE)
Cab to curb. That’s what we call a gorgeous shoe – meant just for that. But, what to do when you need to actually walk more than 30 feet? Since being forced to walk the streets of San Francisco in the rain, when my feet couldn’t take the gorgeous pumps I was wearing for one more second; I now carry a pair of Sidekicks in my clutch – wherever I go.
Don’t get caught in the rain like me,
invest in a pair of packable flats!
Do you have any lifesaving style secrets to share?
How about bomber jackets, will you be giving one a try?
Have you, or will you be giving the white sneaker trend a go?
Have a great weekend!

The cashmere pop up sale sounds so very, very tempting…
If you find you are in the neighborhood, pop in! There are some great investment pieces! I still wear the pieces I bought last year, all the time…they still look great! xx
The bomber jacket is a classic that has branched out to prints and other fabics and just makes any outfit look fresh imo , The ones you featured are great.. I think the cargo jacket needs a rest for awhile. The bombers look great on guys too. Paired up with some white sneaks and jeans is a cute look for sure…I like all the looks you featured for casual and comfortable days ahead this fall. That sporty letter jacket bomber look is just perfect with athleisure and can go morning to evening with a change of shoes…off with the white sneaks and on with a cute bootie ..and dressier earrings. Pus that cashmere scarf…love it all!
