Jacket: Banana Republic (old) / Top: Rachel Roy / Skirt: Ann Taylor / Shoes: Kate Spade Licorice 

I have to admit, I might just work in one of the best buildings located in FiDi. Not only am I walking distance to SOMA, Union Square, North Beach and the Embarcadero, our building has this gorgeous rooftop garden. Many folks in the area come here to dine or just to enjoy the view. I really enjoy the floral garden getaway!

One of my favorite bold colors, if you consider it bold, is Oxblood (or vamp blood if that's your thing)! I'm drawn to anything darker than my favorite vino ;-) There's something regal, mysterious and alluring about this color! When I saw this wool wrap trench at Banana Republic it was a no brainer. I got it a few seasons ago but there are tons of great options out there, a few here and here. Today I paired my wool coat with a Rachel Roy black lace button up top. What won me over was the extended lace material over the hand and the meticulously placed dark oxblood colored buttons. So many of my favorite little things rolled up into one top!
