June Gloom

blue vintage dress 1

So sorry, but I just had to steal this dress out of our shop and wear it to keep me warm on the wintery feeling day we had. The longer sleeves, high collar and cozy material kept out the wind and foggy chill. I know a lot of you are battling the heat right now, my dear Jennifer in Ann Arbor for one, and I'm just a little bit jealous! I wish it felt more like summer here in San Francisco, instead of this gloomy weather. 
The embroidered handbag is one of my fantastic finds from North Carolina's "Dapper Dan's". The colors and pretty floral pattern totally stole my heart. I love to dream about my time sitting by the pool and walking on the beach in such lovely warm weather. I'm hoping that it will be a bit warmer today in Napa Valley when I'm there for my friend Corinne's bachelorette party.

I so love that bag! Sorry you have such crappy weather. I totally feel your pain - we have a week of drizzle here last week and it just made me want to stay in bed!

Vanilla - notes from my closet :

it's rain, rain and more rain here as well... didn't stop you looking fabulous though! :) Love your hat! It is just darling :)

Love, Vanilla

The colors are so lovely! I adore your hat!
It's cold and rainy here as well today...no fun! And the weather forecast is saying that it's gonna be like this all week!

Alice, Pretty Confused :

It's all rain here as well, if that makes you feel any better. Although I haven't been dealing with it nearly as stylishly as you have! I adore that hat! Very dashing xo

Lucy Nation :

I love everything about this outfit. Great colour, great shoes and that bag is amazing. The blue totally works with the green hat too.

Maria E. :

There's been really nasty weather where I'm at too. It's been cloudy, cold, windy, and rainy for the past week, and will be so for another whole week. *sigh* But hey, then at least we can wear some of the clothes we'd otherwise be saving for autumn. ;)

I adore your hat like crazy...it's like the hat of my dreams! Haha. It goes really well with your dress and gorgeous bag. :)

I woud have stolen the dress out of the shop too! Its simply gorgeous!
I know what you mean about the weather, its so gloomy here too! I thought June as summer haha!

This dress was made for you! I love the length of the sleeves too.

Seriously though, we need some warmth over here. Just a little sun on my shoulders would be nice. That's all I'm asking. :)
