Lake Como, Italy as a travel destination; The Butternut Squash & Mascarpone Ravioli made with sage brown butter, parmesan, amaretti at Half Moon Bay’s Pasta Moon (no one does butternut squash pasta better); For an extra special dining experience enjoy the incredible tasting menu at Sons & Daughters in San Francisco (they earned their first Michelin Star only one year after opening); For sweet indulgences with the girls, try Persian Rose & Tahitian Vanilla macarons paired with Mariage Freres tea at Chantal Guillon in Palo Alto (there are so many more exquisite macaron & tea flavors to choose from); Get your coffee fix at the adorable Papa November coffee truck at 15th and Kansas in Showplace Square, San Francisco (they brew high quality coffee using Stumptown beans – delicious!); J.Crew’s Cece Leather Ballet Flats (comfortable and chic – these are great for the office!); The Maddie Top from Candela (the swirls of rich embroidery sewn on a delicate layer of mesh reminds me of vintage Vivienne Tam); The Sequin Collar Shirtdress from Gryphon (I am a sucker for a gorgeous print!); The Lori Top from Elizabeth and James (I love the sumptuous dark-emerald hue & the fluid cut); The Dicker Boot from Isabel Marant in dark brown (pair them with a gauzy blouse and skinny jeans); Reading: Diana Vreeland’s best-selling autobiography, D.V.
