after a wonderfully relaxing five days in mexico, i’m back in san francisco feeling refreshed and recharged. it’s amazing what a short getaway can do for you physically and mentally. and since i’m back at work getting sh*t done, i thought this was the perfect look to feature. i spied this dress during an internal walkthrough and immediately put it at the top of my shopping list. the fabric is a bit heavier, so it can be worn year round with a jacket over or a layer under, or even open as a long vest (and you know i love those). it also effortlessly goes from desk to dinner with the right accessories and undoing a few of the bottom buttons. and if you aren’t into all things neutral (like i tend to be), it also comes in a gorgeous red.

vintage jacket (similar here and here), banana republic dress (wearing a size 4, also comes in red), saint laurent pumps (similar in snakeskin and in zebra), céline bag, lulu frost and banana republic pins, super sunglasses, bite beauty amuse bouche lipstick in beetroot
