Mara Hoffman Jumpsuit

Mara Hoffman Jumpsuit (I’m wearing a small, also available here and here), Dolce Vita Sandals, Chanel Bag, Heart Sunglasses (old, similar here and here), ”Julia” necklace (old, simliar here), Sarah Chloe Bangle, Anthropologie “Love” Cuff (old, similar here), Samantha Wills BangleAll The Wire RingBobbi Brown Lipgloss in “Petal”, Tiffany & Co Pearl Studs

Mara Hoffman does the best prints around, hands down. Before even asking someone or looking at the label, you can identify her unique and colorful designs from a mile away. They’re bright and bold and the ideal summer/vacation look that I love. I brought out this Mara Hoffman jumpsuit a few weeks back while we were in LA and it’s so incredibly comfy. It’s definitely one of the most colorful pieces I own, but I’ve never been one to shy away from a little color. Also, these Dolce Vita sandals have been my go-to shoes for warm weather since I bought them for Mexico a few months back. A nude shoe is always the most flattering and elongating and these are the perfect shade.

When the weather is gloomy in SF, we can always count on heading over the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin to get our dose of sunshine. One of my favorite spots is Marin Country Mart. They have everything from Intermix, Calypso St. Barth, Hudson Grace and my personal favorite lunch spot, Rustic Bakery.

This Joie chambray top is a staple and I highly recommend buying it while it’s on sale or finding something similar. You will wear it again and again and chambray goes with everything. These little leopard shorts are quickly becoming a favorite as well. They’re high-waisted, lightweight and perfect for those warm weekends!

Joie Top c/o (a must-have! + it’s on sale until 6/8), Equipment Shorts (available in more sizes here), Saint Laurent Bag, Chanel Espadrilles (similar version here), Ray Ban Aviators, Janessa Leone Hat, Monica Vinader Rings c/o (here and here), Sarah Chloe Bangle, Anthropologie “Love” Cuff (old, similar here), C.

With the first day of summer just weeks away, I’ve teamed up with Sunglass Hut to bring you three of my favorite looks with three of my favorite pairs of sunglasses! Ray Ban wayfarers have always been a staple in my eyewear and I love switching it up for summer and adding a colored pair. While the turquoise pulls out the blue hues in my shorts, I’m looking forward to wearing them with an all white ensemble this summer as well. These will definitely be my beach shades for summer!

Cat eye sunglasses are timeless and classic, so an all black, white and neutral look seems appropriate for this Miu Miu pair. They’re ladylike and bold, so I paired them with more androgynous and tailored pieces to balance it out.

My new favorite style of sunglasses are ones with reflective lenses. I have the classic Ray Ban aviators, but the clubmaster style adds a fun retro element to any look. I’ve been wearing this pair with everything and love how the colored lenses pull out the different shades of color in whatever you’re wearing.

Look 1: Ray Ban Sunglasses, Zara Top, ASOS Shorts, Joie Sandals, Balenciaga Bag

Look 2: Miu Miu Sunglasses, Burberry Trench, J Brand Top, kate spade ny shorts c/0, Mulberry Heels, Mulberry Bag, Lulu Frost Brooch

Look 3: Ray Ban Sunglasses, Sea NY Dress, Lilly Pulitzer Scarf c/o, Tory Burch Bag c/o, Banana Republic Heels

A big thank you to Sunglass Hut x InStyle for sponsoring this post.
