With a ready-for-anything lugged sole, these modern Chelsea boots take your ensemble to new heights.
Who knew that these waterproof Chelsea boots would forever change my shoe collection?!?
This hybrid of a Chelsea boot and an all-weather boot by Sam Edelman is a serious game changer! The chunky style looks amazing with everything from denim to faux leather leggings. They slide on <- making them oh-so-easy to wear AND they’re waterproof (without being treated)!!
I am a huge fan of Bombas socks right now. On top of making excellent socks, Bombas was founded on the philosophy of donating to those in need. The more socks they sell, the more they donate. One purchased = one donated.

First things first we can take a minute and address the fact that these photos were taken on the frigid streets of San Francisco in December – so needless to say it was maybe 60 degrees (not cold) and I had just walked out of a Soul Cycle class on Union Street.
Was there a need for base layers for this look? Hard no.
Did I just want to wear my new Sweaty Betty gear after Soul Cycle? Hard yes!
But I am also planning an upcoming ski trip to Utah and needed to test out my gear!
Now, what exactly are base layers?
Base layers are the first part of the layering systems starting next to the skin. The baselayers sit snug against the skin and are designed to trap a thin layer of warm air against the body.
Ok, that sounds good – not necessarily a layer we need in San Francisco, but a layer we could all use on a ski trip, especially the way I ski (or roll down the mountain). So when Sweaty Betty sent over these stunning base layers I was ready to trap the warmth against my body (even when I didn’t need it) and style a little winter weather look for you.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I’m a single girl 35-year-old in San Francisco with a small white dog who has a love for fantastic fashion, food, skincare, and BRAVO.
Now, I’ve had quite a few facials in my day and I can tell you with confidence that I know the difference between a good facial and a bad facial.
My love for all things BRAVO recently let me to Heather Gay’s spa, Beauty Lab + Laser in Salt Lake City, Utah. I should have known better than to have booked a $150 30-minute hydrafacial at a spot known for a mini lip plump owned by a BRAVOLEB, but I did it for the gram, and wow wow wow. This was NOT a good facial. I’d actually compare the entire experience to the haircut I got when I was 10 at Supercuts. The facial was fast, efficient, and in a room with FOUR other clients. I kept my clothes on, there was no massage (I always need a massage) and I was out of there in 30 minutes flat. Yes, I was glowing after the facial…but NOTHING like the glow I got at Isabelle McLeod Aesthetics in San Francisco.
My entire experience at Isabelle McLeod Aesthetics. was a dream compared to Beauty Lab + Laser. If you are looking for the ultimate facial with medical-grade products and tools, just scroll down and book an appointment with my girl Isabelle right this minute. She’s a master esthetician with over 10 years of experience and does an amazing job of creating a soothing and relaxing experience while going to town on your skin.
For my first visit with Isabelle, I had the FRESH START RX PLUS TREATMENT (90 MIN) – $325 includes face, neck & chest
The popular FRESH START RX PLUS TREATMENT provides dramatic results in a single session. While they customize the products and strengths of active ingredients for each client individually, the treatments typically follow the same protocol unless you specify otherwise. Every time you visit, they determine what’s required and get to work. They feel strongly about educating their patients about their skin, no one leaves the office without a full understanding of what they need to keep their skin looking great and why!
