Nothing more perfect than a chunky knit sweater, coated jeans, and a beanie to keep you cozy in the...Summer? San Francisco is known for it's freezing Summer, and a couple of days ago we certainly experienced that. The fog was so low all day, that I could't even make out the house across the street from me. It's cold, and eery, but for the past seven years, I've known nothing else, so it's home.

Blown Away

One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to blogging is taking pictures when it's windy out. Everything, especially my hair, comes off as disheveled and unkempt. What's worse is that you can see my annoyance on my face. This time though, I wanted to take advantage of the wind to show the movement of layers I've incorporated into this look. I still love the look of a trench coat layered under a leather jacket, and this color combo was new take on something I've been wearing over and over again.

Kimono Details

I love seeing different cultural influences in fashion, especially Asians influences. We saw a lot of that during the Fall Fashion Week presentations, so I was super excited to see this jacket at a local consignment shop. What was even more exciting was that it's a Dries piece that fit to perfection. It was my lucky day for sure. For it's debut I thought a simple black maxi skirt and belt would highlight the kimono influence of the jacket, and really streamline the pattern.

Jacket: Dries Van Noten (old). Skirt: c/o Tart. Belt: Vintage. Shoes: Steve Madden. Earrings: Target.

Below are a few favorite images I've posted on instagram lately! You'll quickly notice I love taking pictures of this city (it's so beautiful) and desserts... Follow me @postgradchic

San Francisco Skyline from the Bay.

Strawberries and cream: My new favorite dessert from the Corner Store

The Bay Bridge from under. Has anyone checked out the new light installation? Pretty awesome!

Brief signs of Spring in the city.

Our office's new entry way! We have mannequins that do all the greeting ;)

Chambray and Aztec

I've said this before, and I'll say it again- chambray shirts are by far the most versatile piece of clothing, in my opinion! I've worn this shirt in particular so many ways, and I'm still not sick of it. Here I've paired it with my favorite pencil skirt, and metallic heels, for work. The shirt helps dress the shoes down, and mute the pattern on the skirt, which makes this look actually quite neutral.

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm not going to lie, but the past two weeks have been extremely exhausting. By the time 5 pm hit last Friday, my eye lids were already heavy as anchors. Work has been tough, but also very rewarding, so I know I probably shouldn't complain. The outfit below is something I wore last week, as I was dressing in a rush, since the snooze button was hit a few too many times. The giant cozy sweater made me feel as though I was still at home, even while at my desk.

Trend-Spotting: Tropical Bombers

Trend-Spotting: Tropical Bombers

I've been noticing a lot of late 80's early 90's fashions influencing trends as of late. Mainly, I've been seeing a lot of tropical prints; think palm leaves, floral, etc. I really like the idea of wearing a loud bomber over a simple tee and jeans, with sneakers on a casual evening. To make the look more modern, pay attention to fit, wear with slim dark denim, and keep your make-up fresh!

Back To Basics

When it comes to wearing the very, very basic pieces in your closet, you have to make sure it fits. A tee and jeans can go from chic to frumpy if the fit is off. Below I am wearing a tee and jeans that I accessorized with a necklace, belt, and heels. This is something I would wear to the office on Friday, so it can easily transition to happy hour and beyond! It's so simple, but I think still very fashionable.

Tee: Target. Jeans and Shoes: Madewell. Belt: Vintage. Necklace: H&M.
