Sunshining Armor

11 Oct

This has been one of the best weekends I’ve had in a while. Blake, Lola and I spent so much time outside enjoying the glorious warm weather that finally struck San Francisco. It makes me so happy to be able to leave the house without a jacket, and its about time I got to wear these leather Zara shorts I got over a month ago!

Isn’t this “sweater” neat? The thread its knit with is very metal-esque… it has an armored knight kind of vibe, I feel.

It was Fleet Week so we watched the jaw-dropping air show two days in a row… Saturday from my brother’s roof deck, and Sunday from the patio of a local Mexican restaurant, while snacking and sipping margaritas. The Blue Angels are mind-blowing – it’s incredible to see planes fly that close together!

I was one of the lucky few that had a work holiday today. There’s nothing better than a 3-day weekend. Happy Columbus Day! I spoiled myself with a massage at Burke Williams, which was nothing short of glorious. I’m a total advocate of the occasional pamper-fest… it’s just good for the soul.

*wearing: Zara shorts, Vince sweater, JC sandals, vintage Christian Dior sunglasses

    I’ve never seen shorts like this in stores and I love that you paired the tan with the metal “sweater”. You always have a fun twist that works. Your talent for mixing the unique reminds me of Karen from Wheredidyougetthat. I’m convinced that in your closet anything goes and everything works! Haha. I wish

    Those leather shorts are fabulous! I have been looking for a good pair of leather shorts to add to my wardrobe, I think I may go for a pair I spotted at Urban Outfitters or a faux leather pair from Rachel Rachel Roy. Don’t worry you won’t have to put them away when the cold weather is back you can wear them with tights and I am sure they will look just as lovely. Great combo as always!

    Amazing outfit, I love how the sunglasses’ lenses pick up the warm tone of the shorts. Very chic and cool, you look beautiful as per usual.

    In love with leather shorts. They’d look good with boots as well..they’re definitely a year round item.
