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!

Cool spring summer mornings

wearing: silver door knocker earrings / summer lipstick / white v-neck tee / vintage China necklace (one of a kind, similar here) / blue and white stripe waterfall cardigan / black snake belt / classic cut jeans / Gucci bag / summer nail polish / gold ring / floral print wedge espadrilles /

This time of year we have fog at night, and in the mornings. This means it can be in the 50’s during the morning hours, and then rise up into the 70’s during the day. When we have such large temperature swings, it is important to dress in layers in order to combat the cool morning fog, and be prepared for warm, afternoon spring weather.

Anyone who lives in the Bay Area knows to wear layers! Layers are the easiest way to live with fog which burns off, then rolls back in when you least expect it. I love this waterfall cardigan for foggy days such as these. It is perfect for combating the morning fog, and it is easy to take off when the fog rolls back out towards the Pacific. Since it’s thinner than a sweater or jacket, it can easily fold up and get stuffed into a handbag, or carried around. Love it!

I wore this outfit last week when picking up breakfast pastries at 85 degrees. They have the yummiest pastries which are great for breakfast or lunch. It was really fun grabbing a box-full for my family to share. When paired with warm tea or coffee, 85 Degrees pastries are perfect for a cool foggy morning! Love them!

Casual spring denim day

Spring weather is always so volatile. One minute it is warm, clear, and beautiful; the next minute it’s fifty degrees and pouring rain! So, when the weather cannot make up its mind, I love wearing classic jeans and a fun tee.

This cute little tee is comfortable and casual, yet is has a little unexpected twist which makes it look more put together than your average everyday tee. I love throwing it over jeans and wearing comfortable espadrille’s for a casual, spring look I can wear it for running errands as well as meeting friends for lunch at Santana Row.

On this particular day I had a ton of errands to run, and I was still exhausted from the busy weekend. I wanted to be comfortable, but I couldn’t walk around in sweats. This twist tee paired with jeans was perfect. It was a comfortable outfit, and when paired with espadrilles that feel like slippers, it was ideal for my busy day.
