Foggy Morning Requirements

I took the bus (two buses & walking several blocks, to be precise) to work today, so that determined my outfit as much as anything. Northern California summers can flip from horribly hot one week to quite mild the next, & that's exactly what happened. Today was fogged in for the morning. People think that only San Francisco gets foggy summers (insert cliched Mark Twain quote that he probably never said), but that applies to some degree (hah) to most of the Bay Area. The fog layer comes in overnight, & it burns off by noon where live in Silicon Valley.

This means a little schizophrenic dressing, or at least, wearing layers. Especially when taking public transit. So, in addition to wearing flats for the extra walking, I wore tights & a sweater. Definitely needed.

What I'm wearing:
Pink patterned cardigan, Chadwicks
Black T-shirt, Old Navy
Black cotton tiered skirt, gift from Lisa
Black tights, unknown brand
Black T-strap flats, Aldo
Colored pearl & silver bead necklace with cameos, dangly pearls, & silver charms, made by me
Pink filigree earrings, from Blackbird Jewels on Etsy, won in a giveaway from Miss Vinyl Ahoy


  1. The necklace is awesome. And I will have to check out the etsy site -- I really like those earrings. I really want that skirt too. Great outfit!

  2. Siouxsie - Thanks! I've been trying to get a decent photo of this necklace, bec. I love all the little charms on it (collected over the years).

  3. That sweater is very pretty.

    Very jealous of your foggy mornings.

  4. LovleAnjel - The sweater is a fave. Wish we had more foggy mornings as summer progressed!
