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!

The Ikat trend has hit shoes! Keds did a great job of creating a summery, light and on-trend shoe. I saw these yesterday while out shopping in Hayes Valley and I’m surprised TOMS hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon. These would look great with cut off jean shorts and a relaxed t-shirt!

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. The Persol sunglasses fold in the center and stems and the Foley & Corinna purse is the perfect color for spring, summer and fall. Hello weekend!

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”.)
