A couple weekends ago I saw a mom pushing her child in a stroller wearing the most fashion-forward yet low-key outfit I’d ever seen on a mom. I instantly wished that I could be so stylish, especially since I don’t have a child to use as my excuse for wanting to wear sweatpants everywhere. Here is a recreation…

It seems like every summer pieces of Indian culture and style make their way into western fashion, from “ethnic” jewelry to colorful embroidery and silk prints. Over the last few seasons two styles that have really emerged are jodhpur pants and the topknot hairstyle, which paired together make fashionistas look more like Sikhs than hipsters. That said, I think it’s fun that people are looking to different cultures to set new trends and experiment, and as someone who had to wear shalwars for family events I love that jodhpurs are in, however hard they may be to pull off.
Here are seven styles that look great with sandals and a soft blouse or tee.

Crochet is slowly making it’s way back into style and I am all for it. Maybe it’s the California hippy in me, but I think a crochet top or dress makes a really sexy addition to a summer wardrobe.

For a breezy yet sunny summer day, I enjoy wearing long sleeves with shorts, especially in San Francisco where your legs heat up from walking up all the steep hills! This outfit is colorful & playful yet sophisticated & not over the top. I love the contrast of a flouncy blouse paired with tailored shorts.
