Fall Sweater, Chambray, and Shorts

I refuse to put away my summer clothing items until it starts to rain. The weather is very unpredictable in the Bay Area, with 80 degrees weather one weekend and 60 degrees the next weekend! Summer items can always be transitioned into Fall/Winter items by layering, I like layering shorts or skirts with stockings or thigh high socks. So if you have a few favorite summer items that you can't bare to put away, try layering them and you might find out that they are a great year round item. 

This weekend is the other half's and my 4 year anniversary! We are going on a romantic weekend getaway to Monterey, its a special place for us because we went there on one of our first dates. I'm looking forward to reminiscing about our past and dreaming about of our future.
