how do I dress for a beach dinner

Hi there! My name is Cathy and I would like to welcome you to Bay Area Fashionista!

I am a GenX, Bay Area Native, happy wife, fitness junkie, and Mother of three. My professional experience is in fashion, high tech and finance. My undergraduate degree is from the University of San Francisco, and my MBA is from Dominican University.

My weaknesses include handbags, shoes, jewelry, ice cream, popcorn, and M&M’s.

In my spare time I enjoy a good book, spending time with my family, swimming, playing tennis, working out, volunteer work, fundraising, and enjoying nature.

I would define my personal style as California Casual with a touch of glam. I love designer duds, as well as budget deals. On any given day you will find me pairing an budget-friendly top with a designer handbag. It’s how I roll 😉

I also use emoticons, and happy faces, way too much.

Welcome to my blog, and I look forward to connecting with you!

Join me around the web on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google +, Tumblr and Pinterest.
