As summer winds down and our eyes become accustomed to a fall color palette, it can be a challenge to get dressed in the morning! Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we are seeing cool fog in the morning and warm temperatures in the afternoon. This means we need to wear layers!

I love this beautiful dress from IBISS Boutique located in downtown Willow Glen at 1100 Lincoln Avenue. The 3/4 sleeve dress is made from a lightweight cotton in a beautiful shade of burgundy. The maxi-dress looks like a fall piece yet offers lightweight appeal making it perfect for warm summer days. All I need before the fog burns off is my denim jacket! Love that!

The necklace I wore with the dress is also from IBISS Boutique. I love how it blends perfectly with the stripes. The neutral ivory color is perfect as we move from summer into fall since it can be worn with any color palette, any season, any year! How is that for the perfect investment?!

IBISS Boutique has a huge selection of jewelry which is both on-trend and classic. Their website, has a great selection from the store, but of course the store itself has a huge and fabulous inventory which is not to be missed!

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, please take some time to pop into IBISS Boutique at 1100 Lincoln Avenue in San Jose. You will love the shop! You can also shop a sample of their inventory online Use code BAF20 to save 20% off your online purchase. (code cannot be used in-store).
