Lookbook: Tex[tured] in the City

4/29/2013

These photos were actually taken a week ago after a beautiful brunch day with friends in the city. We ate at Epic Roasthouse because it's located right on Embarcadero with a lovely view of the Bay Bridge and the sailboats on the water. It was some of the best weather that I've ever experienced in San Francisco.While sipping on white wine sangria and munching on French toast, I was fortunate enough to see three older gentlemen riding bikes in the nude. And what goes better with brunch than old men in the buff?When I first tried on this dress I didn't like the fit at all. It made me look frumpy. But then I realized that all I needed was a good belt and my opinion of this dress completely changed. Don't you just love the texture? 100% cotton, baby! And I never wear white, by the way, so this was a pretty big deal for me.| Rory Beca floral lace blazer | H&M textured jersey dress | Glint & Gleam knuckle rings c/o ShopLately | Thrifted woven belt | Michael Kors Jet Set tote | In Pink Art Deco choker | La Mer Spring garden charm wrap watch | Glint & Gleam ammo glam bracelet c/o ShopLately | Prabal Gurung for Target flat sandals | What do you think of this look?

  1. I think you look really amazing in white. The dress looks like a great fit and shape and I definitely agree it can often be the belt which makes this happen.
