Stripes With Just a Touch of Denim


Yesterday, I wore ALL denim. Head to toe. Today… it’s going to be super hot, and well, when the heat rises, out come the jersey dresses. The one thing aside from denim that I have in droves in my wardrobe are stripes, stripes and denim go hand in hand this year, and for the foreseeable future (do you remember a time when stripes weren’t a thing?) Anyway… One thing I have as a long time resident of San Francisco is the fear that the weather will cool off at any given second. Even if the forecast says nothing of the fog rolling in, I still like to have easy access to additional layers, just in case. Because it’s like, every time I don’t have those layers the wind picks up and I’m FREEZING.

So here, I have a striped jersey dress which is perfect for hot days, with my Sophie Hulme mini envelope bag, d’orsay flat sandals, and to complete the outfit I always go to my favorite standby, the denim shirt. This one has been in one of my favorites for a long time, by 7 for All Mankind, it’s got the perfect soft texture and great contrast of color between the black and white of my outfit.

What kind of layer do you use for the cool summer nights? A denim shirt? A silk scarf? A jacket? Do tell!
