Dress Well: Signs of Summer

Gap sweater, Citizens of Humanity jeans, Rebecca Minkoff sandals, Anthropologie scarf (old), J. Crew bangle, Anthropologie bag (old), Coach sunglasses (similar)

I tried to make this outfit trendy, I swear. There was chambray involved at one point, and a leopard-print belt at another. In fact, I accidentally forgot to take off the leopard-print belt before we left to go over to our friends' apartment on Sunday night - you can kind of see the strange little outline around my hips. You can imagine my relief when I realized that my jeans were uncomfortably tight because of the belt, and not because of the circumference of my waist. Dodged a bullet there.

I realize that basically nothing about this outfit shouts "summer!" to any of you poor souls who don't live in San Francisco. However, summer weather here is basically no different than winter weather here, so it's sweaters and scarves year-round. However, I still managed to make this outfit seasonally appropriate - I wore sandals! That's all you need for summer, right?










Sometimes when we're out taking photos from the blog, I look up to see my husband behind the camera, smiling at me smiling at the camera. There's something about our infinitely contagious smiles in those moments that always end up inspiring photos like these. His jokes about my awkward poses don't help, either:DSC_2170

Have a wonderful day.
