Gingham Again: The SF to Monterey Edit

Even though I haven’t had this skirt very long – I’ve already worn it to bits (evidence here and here). I wore it again for a day in San Francisco with my trusty Jack Rogers loafers (the most versatile and comfortable loafers I own) and to keep the wind at bay with a white denim jacket over my black sweater set.

Denim Jacket: Lucky Brand (similar here)
Belt: Banana Republic (similar here and here)
Loafers: Jack Rogers (seriously, the best, so much so that I’ve been snapping up any and all colors I see)
Bag: Francesco Biasa (bought probably 10 years ago, and it doesn’t look like they’ve updated recently, but you can find some of their line here)
Sunnies: Lacoste (this season’s here)




I couldn’t help wearing the whole thing again in Monterey with a windproof jacket. I walked comfortably over 3 miles in those Jack Rogers loafers, and up a bunch of rocks – so you know you can trust me when I say that those loafers are truly the best.

Pattern Play + Vermillion

Playing with stripes and gingham! I adore how the stripes and gingham play off each other – and how the vermillion shoes and belt contrast with the white and navy. What is your favorite way to play with patterns?

Tent in the Woods

I found this dress a few years ago – and it has been on repeat for me during the warmer months. The tented shape makes for a breezy and comfortable outfit during the hotter months…. I couldn’t wait to wear it so I’ve paired it with boots, and a slip underneath to keep me warm. What do you have in your closet that you can’t wait to wear in the warmer months?

Rain: Think Pink

Is there something in your wardrobe that you just knew you had to have it?? This jacket is one of those things for me. I saw it and that was it. I picked it out of my local Lord and Taylor when I was in high school, and I’ve cherished it ever since. It’s the perfect shape, and the perfect color to brighten up any rainy day! It helps to have a fluffy scarf and pink bag to round everything out!
