Summer accents

9/21/11






Romwe knit sweater, Forever 21 sheer blouse, Chicwish lace shorts, Urban Expressions clutch, Lucky Brand 'Bambi' boots

I'm always wavering between what I like more, the bright sunshine and slight breeze, or the crisp autumn air. I was beginning to complain about the increasingly hot week we were experiencing until during that magic hour it cooled down a bit... and I felt so at peace riding alongside the golden gleam (I think this may be why I love the color yellow so much). This summer has been great, and I'm trying to remind myself, before the summer is completely over, that I am incredibly blessed to live in such gorgeous weather. Sometimes you take the good, simple things for granted, you know?

The weather in Cali really has gone up this week! It's been mid-high 90's all week in the North Bay, but thankfully the rain will be coming in ♥ I'm a SF girl, I love me some fog and cold weather, since I love layering. Love the yellow button up, it's a beautiful color and looks wonderful with the lace shorts and striped sweater~

I know what you mean. I come from a country ( Singapore) that is HOT and HUMID all year round, so I really appreciate the weather in LA. I love it here.

xo!

Ahh that last shot is my fav! I love the details. Definitely going to try out a combo like this in the near future. Indian Summer has finally hit SF and I couldn't be happier!

We really have great weather in southern California. It can get hot, but I think it's better than hurricanes and pouring rain. Love the pop of color with the yellow and your cute lace shorts. I'm ready for crisp fall temperatures!

yes, i've also been at war with myself: missing the sun of the summer but eager for the foliage (live with 4 seasons over here!).

this sweater is a dream! and i'm loving this touch of golden with your button down.

Lisa said...

I envy you so much for living in Cali, the weather in the Netherlands is always depressing except for those four, five days in summer during which the sun finally starts to shine. I always have to wear tights or jeans, even in summer! So seeing all those pics of bloggers jumping around in lace shorts, floral dresses, and bare legs makes me so jealous! But loving the combo, the lace and the yellow goes perfectly well with the knit!

Love, Lisa

That first picture really looks great with the warm and cool colors mixed together. The knit sweater looks really good (I love the bold stripes!) especially with the button up shirt underneath... wow.

Yeah this week was burning hot, but today wasn't so bad. I love experiencing nice weather at my college campus (where it looks like a park, practically).

Jaya said...

You look fabulous as always! :) Love this look! And you are indeed lucky for the amazing weather of where you live!! Our canadian winter is just around the corner... and i am not excited.
