Lookbook: Oxblood & Operas

San Francisco is full of interesting things to see and do. I like that I live in south bay, but it's always nice to go to the city for fun events like Opera in the Park, especially when everyone is drinking wine and some are even dressed up in crazy getups--follow me on Instagram to see what I mean.

I wore this oxblood ensemble to the city and was so happy that I brought this hat. It was quite sunny in the city, which doesn't happen often. We parleyed some free ice from one of the vendors because I was not down with drinking warm white wine. And can I tell you something? I don't own many cardigans, and I really don't know why because this was the most comfy thing ever. Lightweight enough to keep me from being too hot and cozy enough to keep away the windchill. Don't think you can see here, but the cardi has the cutest stud buttons!

And how cute is my arrow necklace from Blue Nile? I'm really into both chunky, statement necklaces and dainty ones too--is that weird? I just love the dual tone with the rose gold vermeil of the arrow pendant against the sterling silver chain. By the way, all you Muses get 10% off your next Blue Nile order with the code BNFALL10.
What do you think of this look?
