What to Wear: the Fall Suit


Theory top and blazer, Banana Republic pants, J Crew necklace, similar here, Tory Burch bracelet, Kate Spade bag, Steve Madden pumps.

Suits are an inevitability in my line of work. Meeting with folks in more formal businesses or cultures (think finance or Asia) they are a must. But that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. I love these wide-legged trousers (seen here and here) and pairing them with a dark-patterned silk top makes them feel fresh for fall.

On another note…I have a lot of downtime between meetings in my workweek. It can leave me feeling somewhat homeless, looking for places with parking and a good spot to work. That combo is almost nonexistent around San Francisco! But Potrero Hill has it. From easy street parking to great haunts from breakfast (Plow) to coffee (Farley’s) to dinner (Chez Maman) it’s got everything I need to pass time between sets.

What is your go-to spot on the road?
