Insta-R2W


The Genentech employee concert had our favorite emoji. Luckily Whit gets an extra ticket! We saw Jason Derulo (who of course took his shirt off), Imagine Dragons, and Katy Perry with the left shark.


Yummy macarons came just in time for Mal's birthday c/o MacarOn Cafe.  
Flavors shown: PB&J, Chocolate Raspberry, Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Coconut and Raspberry. Chocolate raspberry was the favorite and coconut the least favorite (Mal is not a fan of coconut in general). 




Loved these Birchbox exclusives from Stila and Marcelle! How cute is the packaging?

The Stila lipstick doesn't joke around...it really doesn't budge.  Mal is wearing Bella.



We had such a blast at the #ConnectedbyOT event.  We noshed at Trou Nourmand and Mourad!



Whit's recent adventure at Yosemite; she was super excited to get to climb outside!


The prettiest atrium at One Sansome.  Hard to find a table, but worth it.


Sutro Baths, one of our favorite SF spots (with the best sunsets!).

C/MEO Bounce Back




A couple days ago, I was super excited to find some C/MEO pieces on super-sale on BNKR.  I nabbed this dress and a couple of other pieces for only $19 each! I told Whit about the sale and she picked up the top version of this dress, so now we can twin :):)

The other amazing thing is that my order arrived only 3 days after I purchased.  Which was perfect, because I ordered as a birthday gift for myself and it came in time to wear this dress on my birthday!

On Whit: c/o State of G White Poplin Shirt, Forever 21 Genuine Suede Flat Front Shorts, Jeffrey Campbell Brea Leopard Kitten Heel Pumps, 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Medium Satchel


Working at a biotech company, dressing casually is the norm.  I'm lucky enough that I can wear any casual getup I want so long as 1) I'm not in PJs and 2) I'm wearing long pants with close toed shoes.  I always did have a small desire to have to dress up for work though.  This white poplin shirt would be the perfect staple piece.  The material is comfortable and opaque enough that it is appropriate for more formal situations, or for more casual situations with the sleeves rolled up.

P.S. State of G is offering 15% off your order with code readytwowear+stateofg for the next two weeks :)

Lampshade


on Mal: Forever 21 Contemporary Fringe Dress, J. Crew Sandals (sold out in gold but available in hologram!), Delfonics Pouch, Karen Walker Harvest Sunglasses, Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bella c/o Birchbox

Photos by Ty

If you couldn't already tell by these two posts, I love fringe. It has great movement and feels so airy.  That being said, this fringe is made of loops that literally got caught on everything.  Every. Single. Cabinet. Knob.


On another note, let's talk about this lipstick! It sets really quickly and feels more like a stain then a lipstick...a big plus for hot summer days. The description on Birchbox states, ' Take care when you apply because once it sets, it'’s not budging!' and they are not kidding. If you mess up, it is a pain because the name of this product is truly accurate.

Comme Des Garçons Play





When I went to Japan, I found this top in blue for $75 (it is $155 in the US). I skipped on the blue, as I prefer black and white stripes (and also it was the wrong size).  Lucky for me, my boyfriend Royce travelled to Japan a short time after and was nice enough to hunt down the black and white one for me!

For me, $75 is steep for a t-shirt.  However, as I get older, I have learned to replace items I wear all the time with better-quality versions.  Anyone who knows me has seen that I wear stripes almost every day, so I am sure I will get my money's worth!
