Summer Dressing

21 Jun

Today is officially the first day of summer, which I cannot be happier about. The longer days keeps me out longer, which makes for more vibrant memories and less time in front of the tube. One thing I especially love about summer is the influx of fun jewelry, like this gorgeous silver necklace from Lee Angel which adds flare to any basic outfit.

Hello Weekend!

18 Jun

There’s nothing better than a casual summer outfit for reading in the park or taking a leisurely stroll through San Francisco. Summer days here can be inconsistent-while one area is a hot, another may be cold, hence the need for long sleeves and/or layering. I love the comfort and ease of this outfit. I may have to purchase the whole lot!

Vintage Shoes on ETSY

2 Jun

People tend to have mixed feelings about buying vintage shoes. I have no problem with it-I just clean them very well before wearing them! They are a great choice when you want something unique or, say, good Italian leather without the hefty price tag. I have a ton of my mom’s old Italian sandals from the early 70s and not only are they perfect for summer but they are much more comfortable than new hard leather shoes…plus unlike something you’d find at Urban Outfitters, no one else has them. Here is a variety from ETSY.
