Must Have: a winter coat

Posted By Jamie Wong >>> 1 Comments

J for Jamie Blog | Winter Coat

We’re leaving for Europe in just few weeks! I’ve been looking for the perfect winter coat to take with me – one that’s warm, stylish and easy to travel with (like I can stuff it in my suitcase if needed). Do I go with a wool pea coat, a down parka, a military-chic jacket, or a light-weight jacket I can layer with? Choosing the right coat has been challenging but thankfully, sites like Pinterest and Polyvore provide endless ideas and options. I love the wool coat by J.Crew I’m wearing but I think it might too heavy to travel with. What do you think? Share your recommendations in the comments below or tag me on Instagram or Twitter!

Framed Art

J for Jamie Blog | Framebridge Feature

One thing Chris and I are trying to do is improve our art collection. We’ve graduated from movie posters and are moving on to selective art pieces that will make our living space more unique and colorful. When our artist friend, Jeff McMillan, put his Sloth Giclee up for sale, we had to have it. With our order, Jeff also included a beautiful pencil drawing. Framebridge sent us prepaid packaging to send back the prints to have them professionally framed. For the Sloth painting, we chose the Marin natural wood frame and for the pencil drawing, we went with the black Mercer frame. Our other friends also gifted us a custom illustration by Lisa of My Little Buffalo. We put that one in the Marin frame as well. The three prints came back professionally and beautifully framed. We are quite pleased with our art upgrade and they look even better in Framebridge frames, along side our wedding photos. J for Jamie readers, receive 15% off your entire Framebridge order until October 31st with code:FRAME15

I received custom framing and additional compensation in exchange for writing a review on J for Jamie. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions and photos are my own.

Living Room Refresher

One thing that’s been bothering me is that we haven’t had any of our wedding photos printed. Plus getting photos professionally framed is so expensive so it’s easy to put off. When I had the opportunity to partner with Framebridge, I knew this was the perfect time fix that problem. And, we just had our first our wedding anniversary so how better to celebrate than to finally hang up some photos of our special day? Framebridge made the process so easy – we chose our frames and sizes from over 25 options, uploaded our photos, then they were professionally framed and shipped directly to our home. It even came with all the tools to hang the frames, so easy! I’m truly so impressed with the quality, customer service and ease of Framebridge. For this project, we chose the clean and modern Irvine frame for all our wedding photos so we can easily transition them into a future home. I am so happy with how it turned out and how much it’s transformed our living room. I am excitedly awaiting some artwork I also had framed and can’t wait to share. Receive 15% off your entire Framebridge order until October 31st with code: FRAME15

Half Moon Bay

J for Jamie Blog | Half Moon Bay

Chris and I recently took a day trip out to Half Moon Bay. It’s only about a 30 minute drive north of us so it’s the perfect little getaway. It’s also more of a foggy and overcast climate year-round so it was nice to escape our never-ending heat wave. We love to take these little trips to get a breath of fresh air and spend some quality time together. We grabbed sandwiches for lunch, walked around town and bought some beautiful succulents, visited the lighthouse and then ended the day with coffee and a snack in Pescadero.

J for Jamie | First Anniversary

Our first wedding anniversary fell on Labor Day and, although we were both busy with work, we decided to take the day off and go to our favorite place (and where it all began), San Francisco. We had no agenda except dinner at 6pm at a new restaurant in Hayes Valley called Monsieur Benjamin. We just drove up and decided to play tourist in the city we’re so familiar with. We started with brunch at Outerlands, followed by the Botanical Gardens and then coffee and shopping for our Europe trip in Hayes Valley until it was time for dinner. It was the perfect low-key day and time much needed together.
