I'm starting off the week with this ADORABLE gingham set from one of my favorite SF boutiques, The Harbingers! The selection of pieces from this store are all amazing, but I was immediately drawn to these pieces, especially since I'm loving matching sets these days. Honestly, it just makes life so much easier since you don't really have to worry about what you're going to wear! Just throw on the matching pieces and you're good to go.
So, I kind of have this weakness for denim dresses. I've worn them off the shoulder, short hemline, long hemline, and even embroidered! I love them all. However, I especially have a soft spot for this denim pinafore dress that I bought from ASOS two years ago, which, in ASOS years, is the equivalent of owning something for a decade.
Summer weather is officially here in San Francisco! Yesterday, it reached the high 90's and even creeped into the 100's in some areas of the Bay. As a lifelong resident of this part of California, I always want what I can't have weather-wise. If it's cold, I want it to be hot and if it's hot I complain that I can't stop sweating.
Ahhhhh, summers in San Francisco can be beautiful but, geez, the weather is so unpredictable. A sunny morning can turn into a windy afternoon, which in turn can turn into a foggy and freezing evening. As a fourth generation San Franciscan, you would think that I would be used to this spazzy weather at this point, but to be completely honest it drives me CRAZY!
If you've followed my for awhile, you've probably noticed that I love to be unique when it comes to my sense of personal style. I love pairing different pieces together to see if they compliment each other, mixing and matching different patterns, and trying out new silhouettes to see if I find something new to fall in love with. I first fell in love with tulle skirts when I started this blog, about three and a half years ago, and my love for them hasn't really gone away. I have been really gravitating towards neutrals and tones of brown and rust so when I was given the opportunity to feature this gorgeous tulle skirt, I jumped at the chance, especially since it's custom made for ME. As a gal gifted with height, I find that most skirts don't hit me where I'd like and often look awkward on me. However, with Bows and Tulle, I didn't have to worry about that! I was able to customize my length and all my measurements so that the skirt would be a perfect fit right out of the box. Plus, who doesn't want to feel like Carrie Bradshaw on a Monday morning?
