August has been cold. Let’s face it. In the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area, August is normally a very warm place. We enjoy temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s. We crank our air conditioners all day and all night; but summer 2013 has been different. Having grown up in Marin and lived in San Francisco, I know what a cold, foggy summer is like. I thought I left 60 degree summers behind when relocating to the south bay, but not this year. August has been COLD!

Due to the daily fog and mild temperatures, I find myself wearing jeans or pants during the day and needing a jacket at night. That is where this fabulous blazer from Wallis comes in to save the day. Wallis has created the perfect, lightweight blazer for foggy days and nights. The fabric is light enough for when temperatures hover in the 60’s or low 70’s, yet warm enough to cut off the crisp cold felt when the fog rolls in from the ocean or the bay. Love this!

In the above photos I paired my Wallis blazer with an evening outfit. I love the relaxed shape and fit of the blazer. It was perfect when the fog rolled in over the Santa Cruz Mountains and cooled everything off.

If you like the blazer, and/or you like how I styled it for a recent summer night out in the photos above, please vote for me in a contest on the Wallis Facebook page! To learn more about Wallis, please Thank you so much for your support!

Happy shopping, and stay fabulous
