Style | Black + White = Grey

I envy all you Californians who can wear shorts and dresses year round.

Up here in Vancouver you could do that, I suppose, you’d just be miserably wet and cold. So instead we bundle. Sometimes to the point of wearing a sweater so gigantic and cozy, it’s practically a blanket.

I paired my Dolce Vita sweater with a vintage eel-skin clutch (how thrilled was I to find one so big?!?! These old clutches are often so dainty I can barely fit my camera and cell phone inside) from Ver Unica, a vintage shop in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley.

Ahhh… to be back there, amidst the California air and those beautiful palm trees. If I were in the Golden State right now I’d rock this exact same look. Except I’d turn my jeans into cutoffs.
