Having a wardrobe full of basics makes packing for anywhere pretty easy. When I was getting ready for India I knew that I'll need really comfy versitile pieces with me so 70% of what I packed were Grana basics :) As you know I have a promo code with them (it expires end of January so hurry!): Use ZORYxGRANA for 10% off + free shipping.
After experimenting with head to toe pink look I decided to give head to toe blue look a try.
Wearing monochromatic outfits is super simple and looks really chic. Getting dressed in the morning is exponentially quicker and you can rest assured that your clothes match perfectly:) You can also be more adventurous with trendier accessories. Today I'm drawing attention to an awesome pom pom bag I bought from a small artist in Taipei, Taiwan.
I love sales but sometimes Black Friday is too overwhelming! There is just too much noise coming at you and it's near impossible to filter through all the promotions.
You can actually find great deals on the internet everyday. One of my favorite brands, Grana, creates high quality basics that look good for a fraction of the price of other popular fashion labels. I've been raving about them a lot but if you try them you'll understand why. :)
Today's outfit is all about soft fabrics in warm neutrals. We have a cashmere crew neck sweater in Heather Blush or as I like to call it Pink Oatmeal and ankle silk pants in Rose Down. I love everything about these two pieces to the point where I've been wearing it everyday for a week 😜😜😜. It's just so easy, so practical and it looks good!
If you want to try Grana (You won't regret investing in pieces that will effortlessly transition from one season to another) here is a promo code for 10% OFF and free shipping: ZORYxGRANA
Another obsession I'm nursing these days : fur shoes :)) Ever since I watched CFDA Fashion Fund and saw the gorgeous Brother Vellies slippers I was hooked.
Winter is the perfect time to curl up on the couch and bing watch tv shows. It's the season to be cozy! Use the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals to stock on some comfy slippers and home wear OR prepare early for your office Secret Santa!

Portland must eats
Chances are all food in Portland you gonna have is good. People there know what they are doing and care profoundly about the food they are serving you. For the 30 days we spent in Hipster capital we ate our faces off and here are the absolute must eat dishes:
If brunch is your thing I will say go to Tasty'n'Adler. Eggy Bread Pudding (I believe the name is something like The Whole Toad) - I ordered the bread pudding thinking it's a desert. Well, it wasn't. It's a savory, eggy, scrumptious dish that just blew me away. Probably one of my top 3 things I ate in Portland. Korean Friend Chicken - Really well Borrata Watermelon Salad Radicchio salad
Salt and Straw
Fennel ice cream Olive oil ice cream
Random Order Pies
Quiche of the day: I don't remember which flavour it was but it was soo custerdy and so amazing. Banana crea pie
Roasted beets with coconut milk and curry leaves Kati roll Daily specials: Tomato chaad
Fois Gras Profiteroles
Hat Yai Fried Chicken w/ House Based Curry & Rosti
EVERYTHING is yummy and made with love. Clean eating paradise. Collard wrap Indian Curry plate Organic potato salad/Sunflower cheeze
The Waffle Window
Good classic chicken and waffles with gravy is not to be missed
HYPED PLACES WE DID NOT LIKE:
Pine State Biscuit - Lines, lines, lines. This iconic place on Alberta did not impress us. Unfortunately the biscuits and chicken were average and were not worth the wait. Best thing there were the Cajun Fries and the Sausage gravy Cajun fries.
Screen Door - This place was a BIG disappointment. All the food was lacking flavor. Fried chicken and biscuits were kind of dry, grits were bland, Portions were big but none of the meals were delicious.
I love basics. They make my life easy and comfortable. Finding basics that are high quality, good cut, contemporary design and reasonably priced is a challenge. However I think I succeeded in finding my favorite company - GRANA. Ever since I got their denim I've been wearing it almost every day (you can fact check on my Instagram) The fit is perfect! I've been saying this over and over again but the best way to describe it is if mom jeans and boyfriend jeans had a baby:)) Also if you are looking for a little slice of luxury in your daily life their cashemere tees are amazing
You've seen those shoes on every street style icon out there. They are simple, they are classic, they are adidas:)) If you are about to get your first pair of adidas sneakers here are the top 4 choices I recommend.
Adidas Original Super Star Sneaker photo credit: Urban Outfitters
This one was first introduced in 1969 as a basketball low-top shoe/sneaker. Since then it's made it's way into the wardrobe of all fashionistas. The design is the bulkiest of the 4 models. It comes in men sizing so if you have not bought from Adidas before I recommend you pop in their store or in Urban Outfitters and try the sneakers for a perfect fit.In my opinion the shoe runs a little big. I wear size 8 in most brands and for Adidas Super Star I wear men size 6. Availeble at Urban Outfitters, Nordstorm and Macy's
Adidas Samoa photo credit: Urban Outfitters
Samoa was introduced as a classic all purpuse/soccer shoe. It's less bulky than Super Star and it has an iconic retro look. That being said Adidas Samoa is my favorite of the bunch. I love the beige rubber detail on the sole and how the shape hugs your foot in a very comfortable way. Men sizing, runs big, I wear size 6 (normally size 8 women) Available at Urban Outfitters
Adidas Samba photo credit: Urban Outfitters
This is the most elegant silhouette of the 4. It carries the old school vibe of the Super Star but has a lightness and ease to it. If you are going for something less sporty this is the Adidas for you. Men sizing, runs big, I wear size 6 (normally size 8 women) Available at Urban Outfitters
Adidas NEO baseline I'm including this Adidas alternative because it has the appeal of all 3 models that I've already listed and it's the easiest to find on a budget price. If you shop with DSW you can get these babies for a real bargain. During your birthday month DSW gives you 10$ OFF coupon which you can combine with their other regular 10$ OFF coupons and get adidas NEO kicks for as low as 40$. Style on a budget:) It runs big. Get it from DSW or here
Summers in San Francisco call for..sweaters. Yup, that's right! Weather here is not what most people think. Going anywhere without a top layer is a rookie mistake!
