It's not every day that I wear an outfit like this.  Although it's super cute and retro, I find that it's also a little revealing for every day life in this small town.  I wore this outfit on the hottest day of the year.  The AC in my car wasn't working and I was stuck in traffic for almost an hour.  You guys, I felt like I was cooking inside of my car.  You can actually see beads of sweat on my upper lip if you look close enough in these photos lol.  That's how hot it was outside!  If you follow me on SnapChat, you know how much I love the heat...but this was just too much.  It was over 100 that day.  And probably much hotter inside my car.

I wish I could wear coordinates every day.  I'm actually really obsessed with them.  Right now I have over 10.  My infatuation with matching co-ords is getting a little out of hand.  This I know.

Do you ever wear something you thought was so cute you couldn't wait to take photos with it?  And then you look at them and realize that what you thought was a cute outfit wasn't so cute after all?  Sometimes what we wear doesn't translate very well on the camera.  This is what happened to this outfit.  I absolutely love this pinafore.  I think it's adorable, fun, and such a cute throwback to the 90s.   I can't say enough good things about this piece.  It's comfortable, soft, and everything I want to wear when I just want to relax.  But for some reason the camera doesn't seem to agree with me.  It looks better in person, I promise :)

What made me want to buy this jumpsuit (or romper...or pinafore lol) in the first place is a photo I came across.  It's an old photo of my mom in the early 90s wearing a corduroy pinafore jumpsuit.  It was a dusty sky blue color.  She wore a dark blue floral print turtleneck underneath.  That outfit looked so good on her!  I knew at that point I had to get my hands on something similar.  Topshop had a few cordury pinafore jumpsuits last year, but unfortunately I missed out.  Lucky for me, no one seemed to be buying this one in my size...so I snagged it.

What do you guys think of this pinafore?  I totally get why some women hate them.  They can look frumpy.  But layer it up right and you've got a perfect outfit to wear for the weekend.

Foggy Mornings / Summer Layers

Foggy Morning 1 Foggy Morning 2 Foggy Morning 3 Foggy Morning 4 Foggy Morning 5 Foggy Morning 6 Foggy Morning 7 Foggy Morning 8 Tulle pink coat
BB Dakota lace shift dress
Topshop Jolene silver pumps
YSL Ultimate Beige lipstick
Vintage purse
Dolce and Gabbana almond flower sunglasses

Location: Sonoma

Summer mornings are usually foggy here in Sonoma.  It's chilly and Fall like.  It almost feels like you're at the beach.  Just after 10 am, most of the fog burns off and the sun will warm everything back up again.  Well, for most of the morning I wear a nice warm coat.  We have to dress in layers here...or at least I do because I'm always cold.

I've worn this dress numerous times on and off the blog.  While I think shift dresses are cute, the boxy fit is something I can't quite get used to.  The beautiful lace layer on this dress is what makes me love it.  It's perfect when it's peeking out from under a coat or underneath a blazer.  That's kind of what I normally wear to work anyway.

What do you wear to work during the summer?

Floral Romper

Missguided embroidered short sleeve romper
Kate Spade Isis platform sandals
Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses
Estee Lauder Stay Scarlet lipstick

I found this mesh bodice romper at ASOS.  I fell in love with the beautiful embroidery on the front and back.  I had to wear my Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses to match it.  The long sleeve version is also available but I couldn't find the link for you guys...sorry.

I've already worn this romper twice since buying it a few weeks ago.  I'll have to do a post on the multiple ways you can wear one romper.  They're actually really versatile.

Summer Sweater

Summer Sweater 1 Summer Sweater 2 Summer Sweater 3 Summer Sweater 4 Summer Sweater 5 Summer Outfit  6 Summer sweater 7 Summer Sweater 8 Summer Sweater 9 Summer Sweater 10 Summer Sweater 11 Wearing:
Vintage sweater
Joe's Jeans cut off shorts
Topshop 2 part geek sandals
Roxy bikini
Chanel bag
YSL Rage lipstick

A few weeks ago, I wore this outfit to the beach (minus the bag...I wore a wicker one instead).  And this past weekend wore it all over again.  This cropped sweater is a vintage sweater from the 90s.  It belonged to my mom, like most of my vintage items.

I think this outfit is perfect for a summer bbq, brunch with the girls, or just a lazy saturday.  I always repeat outfits and this will definitely be one of my go-to casual looks for summer.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty excited about it officially being summer.  It's the best time of year for me.  I live for the summer <3
