A few things about this outfit: 1) I made this somewhat-basic top even more basic by tucking in the tie. And 2) the dog decided this clutch was a chew toy and tore the pom-pom to shreds. I remember when it happened—last Friday, the room was quiet… a little too quiet. We scanned the area and found him covered in yarn (caught red-pawed!). After a light scolding, he told me it was okay, but I should never leave my things on the floor again. He sure showed me.

#OOTD: Summer In San Francisco

The 4th of July crept up on me this year and I think it had to do with the weather. Without a sweltering hot day every now and then, it’s easy to forget we’re in the heart of summer. With breezy temps often in the 60s, here’s what to consider when visiting San Francisco in the summer:

 

  1. The Bay Area winds can sneak up on you. Be sure to bring a summer approved-layer—like a white jean jacket or moto jacket. If you’re wearing a short dress or skirt, throw on biker shorts underneath to prevent a Marilyn Monroe moment. 
  2. While it doesn’t feel hot, your skin may think otherwise. I wore a 3/4 sleeve top the other day and didn’t think about my wrists being exposed to the sun. When I got home, they were a bit pink. Next time I’ll lather up in sunblock and opt for a lightweight long sleeve.
  3. As much as I want to wear wedges and platform sandals, the San Francisco hills don’t care. Sneakers FTW.
  4. Go across the city with a cross-body bag—long walks are better hands free.
  5. Lastly, if you’re as clumsy as me and plan on wearing this much white, don’t forget the stain-removing pen!

#OOTD: Everlane Cotton Striped Tank Dress

Everlane The Cotton Striped Tank Dress,

A.P.C. Demi Lune Bag, Le Specs The Prince 57mm Sunglasses,

Pony Topstar OX Low-Top Sneakers via Madewell (on sale, under $50!) 

 

I’ve added two more seasonal staples to my closet and they’re both under $50. I’m not going to lie, the $36 price tag on this cotton dress is what sold me. I love Everlane for many reasons and this is one of them—affordable basics with service I can rely on. Secondly, let’s talk about these lightweight low-tops from Pony (talk about #ThrowBackThursday!). They’re currently on sale AND you can get an extra 30% off sale items at Madewell with code: EXTRA30 (ends at midnight!).

Fancy Finds: Asymmetrical Skirt Sale

The Fancy Pants Report | www.thefancypantsreport.com

Skirts from left to right, top to bottom:

Not one for shorts, a knit skirt is my go-to summer staple. While I love a short hemline from time to time, a mid-length skirt allows you to sit down, bend over, and walk without the worries of a wardrobe malfunction. And duh, they’re ridiculously comfortable. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be living in one (or a few) of these this season:

#OOTD: Paper Thin

Madewell Central Shirt in Lismore Stripe c/o, A Gold E Sophie High Rise Jeans,

Zara Espadrilles (love this pair under $20), Cuyana Saddle Bag,

Cluse La Boheme Watch c/o, Zara Fringe Denim Jacket,

Banana Republic Satya Sunglasses

 

This top is a new favorite and I’m pretty proud that it’s not off-the-shoulder. The fabric is soft, lightweight, and super thin—good for hot & sweaty days. It’s not only practical, it’s versatile too—can’t wait to wear it poolside as a swim coverup. I’ll be swapping out my linen and chambray button-ups for this gauzy, 100% cotton piece. It comes in a few colors and styles and while I can only speak to this one, I have an inkling I’d feel the same about the others.
