I love soft, cotton maxi dresses in the warm summer months. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have been experiencing a heat wave which is taking temperatures up into the 90’s. Since those are normally July temperatures, I have been pulling out my summer wardrobe and enjoying the heat!

This dress by Soft Joie is comfortable and airy; perfect for a hot summer day. I also envision wearing it to the beach as a swimsuit cover-up; or even a summer pool party!

What are your favorite types of clothing for hot weather?

Comfy and casual spring day

The weather is starting to warm up and spring activities are in full swing for my kids. This means I need comfortable and casual clothing for the weekend which is easy to wear at a Little League game, soccer game or by the pool. I get bored always wearing regular jeans so these bright skinnies from the Gap are the perfect way to break the boredom of plain ol’ denim. They are also comfortable and on-trend color-wise. Love that!

I am also a huge fan of the current slip-on sneaker trend. I love how sneakers this season are being made in leather and other unexpected fabrications. It makes a comfortable shoe more interesting and less “frumpy” than just wearing plain ol’ sneakers! This pair from Joie is soft and comfortable; the perfect combination!

How are you staying comfortable and on-trend as spring kicks into gear?

Twilight and berry hues

Outfit: Lipstick: c/o Laura Mercier “Sin” / Earrings: c/o Twisted Silver “Twilight” / Necklace: c/o Twisted Silver “Twilight” / Tank Top: Mossimo / Sweater: Carmen by Carmen Marc Valvo (on sale!) / Belt: Prada / Pants: Gap / Handbag: Chloe / Nail Polish: Chanel Alchemie / Boots: c/o Joie

Twisted Silver has done it again! With beads in shades of grey and a warm heart set on antique brass, the new “Twilight: collection from Twisted Silver is perfect for fall! The necklace can be worn several different ways; four of which are shown above. With this outfit I wore the necklace with the clasp in back. The clasp can also be worn in front and adjusted to any length to create a y-necklace. Love that!

Of course like many of Twisted Silver’s necklaces, the “Twilight” necklace can also be worn as a bracelet. I love wearing it as a bracelet with 3/4 length sleeves or short sleeves.

The “Twilight” collection is dainty, which is right in line with the current runway and street trend toward dainty jewelry. The neutral colors make the collection easy to wear with fall 2013’s color palette. Love!

I paired Twisted Silver’s new “Twilight” collection with my favorite pair of khaki’s and a comfortable lace cardigan sweater by Carmen by Carmen Marc Valvo. The booties, which are incredibly soft and comfortable, were a fun way to mix berry hues with the tank top. This was perfect on a recent warm fall day here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
