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!

As previously noted, I wear a lot of black and white, but I love to mix things up with a good splash of color, especially when it’s unexpected. I am coveting these shoes from Marais, a brand whose shoes are always comfortable, a bit retro, and consistently in the cutest colors. I also love this new take on Wayfarers, which are a little more feminine than the classic version.

For Memorial Day weekend my husband and I were invited to our friend’s beach house in Bodega Bay. I am seriously looking forward to relaxing on the beach, barbecuing and catching up with old friends.

When I think of summer dressing, I think of light and airy, with touches of gold and sea blues. I adore the breeziness of this Joie dress, especially when contrasted with this colorful Ikat bag. The best outfits tend to be a mix of high and low, vintage and new. (Note: “high” to me is a $250 dress. Anything couture I’ll probably just call “the unaffordable” or “the dream on”.)
