weekend look

{Zara blazer, By Luciana tee, Abercrombie skirt- similar style (from college days- don't judge!), Goorin Bros. fedora, custom Converse c/o, Madewell calfhair clutch}

I'm determined to run around in bare legs for the majority of this summer even if San Francisco weather refuses to cooperate with me. This was my mantra and look for the weekend. In even more exciting and relevant news- we've moved from the suburbs into San Francisco. Now I don't just work here, but I get to enjoy it off-hours too and it's been pretty amazing! I love walking around exploring my neighborhood and making a mental list of all the places I want to eat at and spots I want visit.

This look is a little bit street, but it could also be considered "festival-style"- and with Outside Lands coming up, check out this style guide on what to wear this festival season...

 If you’re going to an open air music festival, you want to look hot and cool. Of course, you don’t have to wear the same clothes as you did in those Treasure Island wedding photos of your aunt. First of all, let me give you a general advice: the goal of your outfit is to make you feel good 5-6 hours in a big crowd, in the rain or in the summer heat.
     The main idea of your open air outfit is to provide an opportunity for you to leave away the urban outfits and try a new grungy style that’s cool, bohemian and makes you feel natural. The chosen outfit should represent your personality by maintaining that youthful air, without looking artificial. The perfect clothes are the ones that will make you look at the same time careless and chic.
    In the category “Don’t wear it” enter any office outfit (shirts, business suits), high heels, trainings, leggings, cocktail dresses and slippers. All these must be avoided, forget about them. When going to a music festival, you don’t want to look like the angry manager of the band playing, lost in a crowd of cool people.
    Here are some examples of looks that are visually pleasing and appropriate to the context, which may be adapted according to your own style and wardrobe:
- Shorts + white shirt half-tucked + airy kimono with colored print + santiags boots (cowboy) suede low heel + sunglasses;
- Casual slip dress + denim shirt left unbuttoned and worn with the sleeves rolled up + long necklace + gold + espadrilles sunglasses;
- Shorts or skirt + silky blouse + black sneakers + sunglasses with very dark lenses;
- Floral jumpsuit (long or short) + vest + gladiator sandals + small messenger bag;
- Asymmetrical dress (the 'tail' or train ")+ vest + denim or suede low heel boots, (Native American Style );
- Midi printed skirt+ a cropped top or bustier + sneakers;
- Shirtdress + sneakers;
- Transparent lace dress + male boxers ( underneath, of course!) + Biker boots;
- Jogger pants or boyfriend jeans + sports shirt+ espadrilles / canvas sneakers / Birkenstock sandals.

  2. Love the Abercrombie skirt! Anyone is lying if they say they didn't own one, you are just probably the only one of us who can still fit in it!
