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.

If I had $1500 to spend now, this is what I’d buy. Philip Lim’s cashmere and silk sweater is soft and elegant with modern, cool details while the butterfly shorts are trendy with a retro silhouette.
