This season I’m all about neutral tones and pieces that are easy to mix and match.  True, not as inspired and interesting as I would normally go for, but stretching my wardrobe is a must right now.  Items like this cute polka dot sweater add a bit of personality while still being extremely comfortable. (Comfort is essential at this stage of my pregnancy. I can’t believe I only have 7 weeks until my due date.)   A bit of sparkle and shine can elevate even the simplest of  looks.

One of my reasons for loving Fall fashion is all the lovely layers.  I adore layering!  It’s flattering and adds visual interest to any outfit.  With hot summers, like we’ve been having, layering becomes a bit more tricky.  Over the years, I’ve found ways to incorporate layers into my warm weather wardrobe.  Chiffon print cardis like this one along with cotton vests have become my go-to.  They add that little something extra without the unnecessary added warmth.  Do you layer in the summer?  How do you make it work?

To keep a more casual outfit looking polished, pay attention to all the details.  Little touches can amp up your jersey’s and knits.  For this look I kept my colour palette quite neutral and then added a few richer looking accessories.  I went with a studded bag and sandals, long silver necklace, layered bracelet, and sparkly stud earrings.  Other details like a fresh hair cut ( and color) and polished toes and nails allow me to feel great in whatever I put on…even casual looks.

If I was to list some of my favorite things, cherry blossoms and Sunday brunch would definitely top the list.  Yesterday I got to enjoy both.  I had a fabulous brunch with three of my best gal pals at one of our fave spots in Kits, Trattoria.  We noshed on eggs benny, bruschetta, and the most amazing french toast.   After catching up and solving the worlds problems, I headed home to my hubby where we spent a bit of time outside enjoying the sunshine and cherry blossom filled streets in our neighborhood   All in all it was a lovely Sunday.

April showers bring May flowers.  I keep reminding myself of this when I wake up to an overcast sky and puddles on the ground.  I’ve packed all my boots away for the year but one pair I can’t give up would be my wellies.  An absolute West Coast must.  To make sure I don’t look like I’m going out to do some gardening or digging for clams, I try to keep my rainboots looking just a bit more refined.

My maxi skirts have been perfect to keep me warm but they often get soaked on the bottom.  To avoid looking soggy, I tie a knot at the bottom of the skirt to shorten the hemline just a bit.  This fabulously cozy sweater by Left of Houston is the perfect layering piece.  It doesn’t look heavy and bulky but it adds just enough warmth to keep the chill off.    How do you stay chic in the rain?
