June In Review

I hit a huge milestone this June at my office and while it was a bit overwhelming to think about, it also brought up some great questions and forced me to really think about what I hope to achieve in the future. I felt very lucky that it happened in June as well since it was the halfway point in 2015 – So I have 6 months to work on my goals for this year.


I transitioned from being a redhead to a blond this month and for some reason I haven’t been able to stop wearing black and white ever since. Lots of faux leather and stripes and capes, mais bien sur.

Be sure to check out my June Sartorial Round-Up to see all of these looks from this month!

Healthy breakfasts were a big part of my month – Shifting from intermittent fasting to eating breakfast has been a challenge but I’ve really enjoyed trying new recipes and old favorites like protein smoothie bowls.

If you’re not keeping up with the MCLV kitchen on Instagram be sure to head over and take a look!


My love of black & white bled into my workouts this month when I fell in love with these Nike Free shoes and started putting together monochrome running looks.

  1. Publish: In addition to contributing to GEV and Fashion Xchange‘s Summer Issues this month, I also gave my personal writing some much-needed attention.
  2. Move: Despite a minor foot injury June was a running-heavy month. I can’t get enough of my gorgeous city this time of year and can’t seem to stay inside!
  3. Grateful: I’ve been exploring new neighborhoods and trying new shops and restaurants this Summer and falling in love with San Francisco all over again. So grateful to live somewhere that I love this much!
  4. Habits: I decided to only give my attention to valuable opportunities and projects this month and I’ve felt much more focused since I stopped spreading myself too thin by taking on everything.

What’s going through YOUR mind now that 2015 is half over?

June Sartorial Round-Up

June has come to an end so before heading into a fabulous and fashionable July, I wanted to take a moment to appreciate some of my favorite sartorial moments from June.

Faux Leather Jacket Black & White Stripes Red Quilted Bucket Bag San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

{Faux Leather Jacket – Finding the perfect cropped jacket that you can throw over everything from jeans to a maxi dress is a serious milestone for any fashion lover. I’d been haunting my favorite local vintage shop looking for a distressed version when I inadvertently stumbled on this faux leather jacket at Express.

Cape Blazer Outerwear Layering Black & White Stripes San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

{Cape Blazer – I’m a huge fan of capes. Throw one over any look and suddenly you’re channeling Grace Kelly. This Cape Blazer is an amazingly versatile piece, the structured silhouette really takes it up a notch. I fell head over heels when I saw it and wore it for at least a week straight.}

Moody Miss Havisham Dark Florals Kimono San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

{Moody Miss Havisham – My love affair with sheer floral kimonos continues! This shot makes me smile because I’m wearing layered jewelry from some of my favorite designers & boutiques.}

Boho Little Black Dress San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Bohemian Hat

{Boho Fashion: What I loved most about this look was the wide-brimmed fedora! I adore hats but rarely wear them – Mostly because my hair is always in a bun. So when I get a chance to wear one – I get pretty excited.}

Which of these June looks is YOUR favorite?
