venturing out

Top: Express: Skirt: Banana Republic: Shoes: Zara, Handbag: Coach
Summer time in San Francisco is the best time of the year! It starts to get “hot”and a little less windy.  Today I ventured out of my typical spot and headed to Presidio area in San Francisco.  The housing and landscape in this area is breathtaking.  I can only imagine the view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the houses.
The last few weeks I’ve been doing a lot of evaluating of my closet.  I sell a lot of clothes on Poshmark and I thought with the move to NY in a few months, it would be a great time to “spring clean”.  During my cleaning I noticed a few trends, I love peplums and I need more colorful tops. This being my top shopping initiative, I found this beautiful peplum at Express.  They have several other colors, as well as white and black.  I think I’ll have to purchase a few more to make it though spring.  The top is wonderful because it can be worn with a skirt or pants.  When working in an office, you always have to consider clothes that will convert between skirts and pants and to everyday outfits.
What do you think about black and white for spring? Are you as excited as me!!! Yippee!

  3. I love peplum! for the bag, I might use a bight blue bag if I were you, so to keep the colors of the outfit more consistent 🙂 Or using a statement necklace that matches with the bag color 😉
