San Francisco has it's warm summer days and it's not so warm summer days. This weekend was a mix of both — Saturday I wore a sweet summer dress and Sunday I was a bit more bundled up. This fringe sweater is perfect for a casual weekend look when the weather isn't too hot. Shop my similiar favorites below.

A kimono is one of those delicate and beautiful items of clothing that deserve to be the star of any outfit but sometimes they are hard to style even for someone like me who loves a taste of the eclectic. I decided in order to do this robe justice I needed to keep the rest of the look simple. A slip tank, denim leggings, birkenstocks, and a basket bag — nothing more, nothing less. How would you style this kimono?

where I'd rather be: sunset beach in oahu

Ugh, it's Monday. Today is the most Monday there ever was with a week in Panama behind me, a head full of memories, and a tan that will hopefully last me the rest of the week. I'm back in San Francisco and already plotting my next trip.

This beach look was when we were in Hawaii a few months ago, we went surfing at Diamond Head so it only made sense to have a tré cute wetsuit, and nobody does those better than Cynthia Rowley herself. When I wasn't shredding the waves I was working on said tan and this striped bottom and ruffled crop top set was perfect for that activity. For a more appropriate day-time outfit I threw on a flirty skirt and called it a day.

What are your summer plans? I wanna know!

I can't get enough of gingham, I want every last checked piece and this two piece set is allowing me to live out my warm weather summer dreams. I first wore this set in Lisbon last summer, and didn't pull it out again until last month when I was in Hawaii because if we are being honest — SF weather is just not the right place for this lightweight set. I do however love that it fits like a one-piece dress if I pull the skirt up a bit higher, and a two-piece, showing a sliver of skin, if I lower the waistline on the skirt. 

Have you bit the bullet and bought any gingham looks yet?

This dress is by far one of the most beautiful, lightweight, and floaty pieces I've ever worn. Cynthia Rowley sent me a couple of pieces to play around with and this off-the-shoulder, silk number was perfect to bring with me to Hawaii last month. I wore it to grab coffee with Julie while in town, but it could easily double as an elegant dinner look or even for cocktails overlooking the sea. 

We shot at the Laylow, Autograph Collection while in town and decided it's absolutely photogenic and we need to book at stay there next time.
