Hope you're all having a great weekend!  Here's an outfit I wore when I was in Berkeley for a quick trip.  It was a good 30 degrees cooler here than back home.  Warm enough still to wear an off the shoulder top and a skirt.

If you're reading this and you want to leave a comment, tell me about something good that happened to you today.  Or yesterday.  Or this weekend.  I wanna hear about it.  There's been an awful lot of complaining going on in my Facebook feed and I want to undo everything my sore eyes have seen.  I don't like to focus on negativity.  There is always something good that happens to us...no matter what we are going through.  It might be a small little gesture of kindness or affection.  Or an inspiring quote you came across that helped you feel better.  Or it can be something more obvious, like a promotion or a goal we have reached.  But there is always always something positive, something beautiful to look forward to.

I hope all of you have an amazing day <3

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?
