June Gloom: How To Layer Accordingly

    When it comes to layering, it’s safe to say I’ve mastered the art. Living in San Francisco, you kind of have to because you just never know what you’re going to get. The forecast is not only all over the place most of the time, but pretty unreliable too. I heart you SF, no hard feelings! This skill has been helpful though to continue building out my wardrobe – stocking up on versatile, neutral, and basic essentials that help make getting ready each day a breeze. And while these items aren’t the ones that make the biggest splash, they’re the things I simply can’t live without. June gloom is a particular time where these pieces come in handy – layering is key because it’s #niceoutbutnot.

    Has anyone else noticed that I’ve practically become a cartoon character –perpetually topped off with a hat? My collection is growing strong, so much that I’ve hung them on our walls as décor, reminding me to grab one on the go. This one is a favorite as of late and perfect for those cooler spring/summer days (and fall, let’s be honest, this isn’t the last time you’ll see me wearing this). My tip is to layer with light pieces in case the sun decides to grace us with its presence, and balance your outfit out. I love complementing a black leather jacket with neutrals – it grounds the look a bit more for daytime dressing.


    Let me tell you: I fall more and more in love with this Mansur bag. I love the way it slowly wears (it gets better with age) and how simple and chic it is. AND – it’s big enough to lug around my camera with me. To put it simply – it’s my Mary Poppin’s bag and it’s practically perfect in every way.


    In other news, I am off to a little wine retreat this afternoon up in Napa and I’m looking forward to the 78º! Be sure to follow along on snapchat (brunchsnaps) and Instagram for some vineyard shenanigans! Have a great humpday, friends! xx
