We finally have sunshine here in the San Francisco Bay Area! Our spring weather was so crazy cold. It felt like late fall instead of late spring. Last week we had fog and 60 degree temperatures, this week we have 90 degree weather. It is quite a change!

Since sunshine is naturally cheerful, I felt like wearing a happy, yellow top to kick off summer vacation when I met my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun for lunch, and of course, blog photos! I felt like the cheery yellow hue represented summer sunshine.

We snapped a few photos on the streets of Campbell, and then enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Flights on Campbell Ave. If you are local, and haven’t eaten there yet, it is a must-do! They have a fun menu you can mix and match, and a hip atmosphere. You will love it!

Our lunch conversation consisted of our favorite brands to take on vacation with us this summer, and New York Fashion Week! It’s never too soon to start talking about fashion week. After all, it’s the biggest fashion gathering of the year; well, technically it happens twice a year, but who is being technical?? haha, I’m not!

Twirling in tie dye

OK, so I discovered tie dye blurs when you try to snap pictures of your skirt while in motion, with a point and shoot. As blurry as my skirt appears in some of these photos, it does add a dreamy aspect to the tie dye fabric, don’t you think? After all, tie-dye is from an era when people dreamed of an Utopian society filled with peace, love and happiness. Isn’t that dreamy?

I really wanted this skirt to stand-out, so I paired it with a simple black tee, and black pumps. Since there was also some brown blended in with black, grey, and other neutrals, I pulled the brown out with my fun little train case. This was a great outfit to wear to church last Sunday, which is when we snapped these photos. This outfit will also be ideal for professional meeting this summer, and anytime I want to wear a skirt! Love it!

Tie dye is such a fun trend. It was all over the spring 2019 runways, and it is proving to be a trend that the streets love. People are wearing tie dye everywhere I look! I love the nostalgia of this trend, as well as the artistic value it adds to peoples’ wardrobes. It is very rare to spot the same tie dye twice! Love that!

This tie dye skirt will also look cute with street sneakers and tee on casual days. I always love finding casual ways to wear skirts and dresses in the warmer weather. They are such nice alternatives to shorts!

This has been an interesting spring season so far! We will enjoy high 70’s one day, and then the next day, we have a grey sky with temps down in the 60’s and 50’s. It’s a bit cooler than usual! April usually bring us a steady stream of high 60’s and 70’s!

My go-to, casual look in the spring season is typically jeans, tee, boots or espadrilles, and a cute bag. I thought this go-to look would work perfectly the other day, but alas, I was freezing in my tee! It’s April, and I need a jacket? Whaaaaat?

Despite the chill, I gutted it out and enjoyed a fun little morning stroll with my girl Dawn from FashionShouldBeFun.com. We walked in downtown Los Gatos and then grabbed some brunch at Southern Kitchen on Main St. in Los Gatos. It was really yummy, and so much fun to catch up! I enjoyed the churros waffles with fresh strawberries, and Dawn had a delicious make-your-own omelette. If you’re local, give it a try!

Although I was a bit chilly, I know the weather has to warm up very soon. It’s just plain science! So, I am thrilled to be prepared with this comfy tee, and my favorite pair of jeans. If you’re looking for a classic meets edgy tee, this striped boxy tee is perfect! Plus, it’s at a great price!

How is the spring weather shaping up in your next of the woods? Are you having cooler temps this year too?
