Mini is More

I found this cute little mini dress at a recent Gilt City warehouse sale.  I love the bright floral print, which is a vibrant contrast to the dark background color.  For a day in the city I wore it with a pair of black motorcycle boots.  If I were headed to wine country or warmer temperatures I would throw on a pair of strappy sandals.  Either shoe choice works well to finish off a fun and comfortable outfit!

Black + White

All black and white looks have been on trend for a while now.  Depending on how the combination is styled it can be very bold, or retro, or classically simple.  In honor of the post Memorial Day season, I opted for an all white look with touches of black.  I love the unexpected embroidery detail on these white jeans.  Since the summer in SF does not get very warm, white jeans have become a summertime staple for me and I am slowly adding to my collection.

Sunday Cool

One of our favorite Sunday morning activities is walking over to the neighborhood farmer's market to pick up fresh veggies, fruit, and flowers.  It is especially enjoyable on sunny summer mornings.  One of my weekend summertime staples in NYC were knit dresses.  Anything that kept me cool and comfortable in the hot muggy weather was a must.  I still like to wear knit dresses for casual weekend outings, but have learned to add on different layers due to the constantly changing SF climate.  Throwing on a sweater or cute over shirt usually does the trick!
