What are you wearing? 

Denim shirt by re:named, Jil Sander skirt, Franco Sarto sandals, Wildfox sunglasses, and Sophie Hulme bag.

How would you describe your style? 

I'd like to describe my style as "edgy-preppy," since I tend to go with the classics, but add in edgy details. Leather shorts with a button-down shirt for example. Or here, an A-line skirt with a denim shirt with raw edges. I'd like to be more edgy, but I'm so not a bad ass. I'd like to be more preppy, but I'm not that nicey-nice or whatever it is that preppy people are. So, this is my take on both.

How would you describe San Francisco style...or is there even such a thing? 

SF style is the nerdy middle sister between New York and Los Angeles. Quirky, unique, and adventurous, is how I'd describe it. S.F. has a history of being a town of outlaws, of people who didn't fit in anywhere else, so people generally do their own thing style-wise."

If you had to live anywhere else, where would it be? 

Oh my goodness, this is my third time moving back to San Francisco in my adult life. I love it here and always have a reason to come back, so I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

 What are your top 5 San Francisco spots? 

Piccino, Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous (espescially when it has Birthday Cake ice cream), Sightglass Coffee, McKinley Park, and Fort Funston. 

What 3 things are you most obsessed with right now? 

My son! Also, homemade iced coffee, and getting a few moments of quiet time.

What's up next for you? Anything exciting? 

I just relaunched my personal style blog, The Coveted, which has been a lot of fun. I'm also working with a partner to bring a blogger conference to San Francisco. Can't wait to share more about that!
