Heading West...

10:00 PM









I attended a friend’s wedding in San Francisco a few weeks ago. Typically, the thick pacific fog always creeps in when I stop by SF. Surprisingly, during a somewhat chilly September afternoon, I saw the clearest and bluest skies I have ever seen in the city!

Despite the fact that color blocks and solid pastels are trending today, I have always been a big fan of patterns. I wrote about this dress two years ago with a woodsy backdrop. This time, I felt it was appropriate to bring it out again since coral does better with a seaside view.

Both the dress and the scarf are from Lilly Pulitzer, a name you rarely see on on the West Coast. It may come as a shock to some but YES - I recently moved from DC to the Pacific Northwest, where the scale favors the hipster rather than the preppy. This outfit is a perfect representation of me styling in between the two - preppy East Coast floral prints plus hipster Northwestern retro ankle boots. I don’t think I will abandon my East Coast roots, but I’d like to refine my traditional preppy style with some new PNW elements.
