August Sartorial Round-Up

There was nothing consistent about my sartorial choices during August. But I suppose that makes sense since I was going from weekends lounging lakeside to fashion events here in San Francisco to work – You’ve got to adjust for your circumstances after all!

Keep scrolling for a peek at some of my looks from this month!

{My office style tends towards classic styles and fairly demure hemlines. I’m all about printed BCBGMAXAZRIA dresses and colorful, flattering frocks that I can take from day-to-night.}

{When I’m on the road you can count on my travel style being simple, comfortable, and chic. Basic black layering with a killer bag like this oversized Givenchy Antigona Satchel and a fun scarf like this skull print Alexander Wang beauty.

How did YOU finish up Summer style-wise this year?

August In Review

August was all about soaking up the sun – With suitable SPF applied, mais bien sur. Weekends away spent on the water learning how to water ski and paddle board, pool parties, river adventures… This water baby was quite pleased with all the chances to splash that this month offered.

This wasn’t a terribly consistent month in terms of fashion – I happily vacillated between black-on-black for my travel style to brightly colored prints at the office to sporty stripes for a casual weekend look.

With all my travel the past couple months I’ve become a pro at packing snacks and meal prep so that I’m getting all my nutrients while I’m on the road. I’m lucky its farmers market season too since it’s so easy to find fresh, delicious produce wherever you go right now!

August was all about trying new activities and getting outside. From trail runs with my favorite Workout Playlist to quality time on the lakes and rivers of NorCal doing everything from swimming to paddleboarding and kayaking.

  1. Publish: I started getting serious about researching my next novel this month. I have so many ideas, I’m excited to get through this phase and start writing!
  2. Move: This month I learned how to water ski and paddle board, both of which I loved, and I got in a killer trail run that was one of the exercise highlights for me this month.
  3. Grateful: All my weekend getaways have reminded me how grateful I am to live in such an amazing location – It’s as easy as a few hours in the car to find beaches, rivers, lakes, mountains, and – Most importantly – Vineyards. Couldn’t be happier getting outside this time of year in Northern California!
  4. Habits: This month, more than ever before, I was given the opportunity to really live in the moment and say yes without worrying or stressing or planning. And you know what? Once I let go, it wasn’t too scary! 🙂

Are YOU ready for Fall?
