the reunion






Dress: Alexander McQueen (a few seasons old, similar style here); Shoes: Valentino; Clutch: Vintage; Sunglasses: Target; Watch: Daniel Wellington; Bracelet: Gorjana; Ring: Jennifer Zeuner

As I mentioned last week, I headed back home to Reno this weekend for my 10 year high school reunion (10 years -- I still can't wrap my head around that!). While I really had no idea what to expect for the evening, I did know I was dying to wear this pearl embellished, fits-like-a-glove McQueen dress I recently picked up on sale at Jeremy's a few weeks back. Combined with a little stud action on the shoes, I felt very me in a slightly demure meets edgy kind of way. 

As for the reunion? It's funny, so many different scenes featuring a certain Romy and a certain Michele played out in my head while driving into town. Maybe everyone will hang out in cliques? Maybe unrequited crushes will have a second chance? Maybe someone actually did invent Post Its (or the figurative equivalent). But really, it wasn't quite like any of that at all -- and I mean that in the best way possible. It was great catching up with so many old friends, teammates, confidants, and yes, perhaps an old crush or two, and seeing where the last ten years have taken them. While so much has changed, in a weird way, it felt like we kind of picked up where we left off. 

Although, yes, I'd be lying if I didn't admit I was slightly disappointed there weren't any dance numbers quite like this. Maybe at the 20 year reunion? ;)

life lately


1. My uniform lately (which you can shop now directly from your inbox by signing up for Like to Know It).
2. A casual Saturday outfit with these red Valentino pumps, originally featured here.
3. My Friday afternoon routine usually revolves around picking up my second coffee for the day plus fresh blooms.
4. The view heading to happy hour after work. It just never gets old.
5. I forgot how much I loved this Stella McCartney citrus print skirt. Too perfect for warm summer days.
6. The accessory edit on heavy rotation these days.
7. Recently stumbled upon my new favorite house in San Francisco -- check out all those potted gems!
8. A quiet Saturday morning alone. 
9. A few girlfriends and I went out to wine country this past weekend for the Napa Valley Wine Train -- highly recommend if you're in the area! Had a beautiful dinner on a restored 1915 diner car (very Darjeeling Limited-esque) and I loved every minute of it!

As always, you can follow along right here on Instagram. Happy weekend, everyone!
