Good morning!  After a week of rain and gloom (I know, I know, we need it 😉 ), I decided to throw on some pastel hues to brighten my mood.  I was meeting a friend for coffee in one of my fav neighborhoods in SF, Hayes Valley, and the crisp weather was calling for chunky knits.  I got this breezy shirt dress at a boutique on Melrose in LA which I used to love rocking with sandals but I’ve now found a way to make it NorCal approved by layering it with a warm sweater and O-T-K boots!

These funky shades turn any outfit glam!  I love the pentagon style, a unique twist to the cult favorite cat eye shape!

Petite Tip!

Don’t be afraid of piling on too much with the layers!  I balanced the volume out with a short hemline and elongating boots.  Rock this look all day with that extra hour of sunlight 🙂
