The sun has honored us San Franciscans with its presence quite a bit lately, which is awesome because my closet is filled with knee-length dresses! I had to run some errands, so I thought a cute outfit was in order. Bare legs made their first appearance in 2013 on May Day (ha!). I really wish I could get a little color on my legs with the sun, but I’ll probably have to go the sunless tanner route. I’m sure most of SF is pretty pasty right now anyway, so blind away white legs, blind away!

This is a pretty versatile outfit; change the shoes and you can wear it to work. Wear it for errands, lunch with your girlfriends or in-laws, if the sun is out, wear it!

First bare legged day of 2013!

I kept the jewelry simple and wore my new favorite sandals with gold accents. I love this Juicy Couture necklace so much. The heart at the bottom is a charm, you can buy more Juicy charms to add to the necklace. The length is adjustable, so I can wear it so many different ways! It’s one of my pricier pieces in my jewelry collection, but it’s definitely worth investing in nice pieces.  The earrings are from Forever 21 and came with two more pairs of geometric shapes.

Hopefully there will be more dress posts to come with the sunny forecast!

One of my favorite things to do with color is mix it up with other tones in the same family. Here, I’m wearing cobalt blue slacks with a navy blazer. The way I break up the color is to throw in a printed blouse in a neutral color underneath the blazer and pair it with warm metallic accessories (rose gold, yellow gold and chocolate metal). The earrings have turquoise, which is in the same family as the blues, so it works! The final touch are my Miz Mooz Nash oxfords. I absolutely LOVE these shoes, so much that I have them in black and brown. This is the kind of outfit I would wear to work on a “dressy” day or to an interview.  To make it a little less formal, I’d throw on a cardigan in navy or beige.
