My husband and I have dinner plans tonight with our good friends from New York. I’m really excited to see them as we missed our annual New Years eve trip together this past year and we are all looking forward to meeting up and planning for 2011. We were thinking Guatemala…but I digress.
What I really should talk about is what I’ll be wearing tonight, a black Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Dress with shoulder detailing that looks not too far off from this one. Even though it’s almost officially summer, I still love wearing all black and I love to contrast feminine details with more edgy and/or earthy accessories.

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.
