T By Alexander Wang Blouse, Big Star Denim Jeans, Forever 21 Necklace, Zara Sandals, Miu Miu Bag

Layering becomes a key element in dressing for San Francisco. I’ve found that sheer blouses and light sweaters are the best way to do this without looking bulky. I love this chiffon T by Alexander Wang blouse because it has the elements of being tailored and relaxed at the same time. This look is also inspired by one of my favorite trends- Pastel and Sorbet Shades. Since the blouse is a light mint color, I thought adding a soft pink bag would be the perfect complement to it.

Blazer Theory/ Shirt StyleMint/ Pants J.Crew/ Sandals Vince/ Bag Reed Krakoff 

A comfortable pair of pants that are both chic and practical are definitely a SF essential and end up being one of the first things I go to grab in the morning. I always look for something that’s cropped at the ankle because I find that it’s more flattering on my frame. I love the look of this pair of statement J.Crew pants and incorporated this season’s “Vibrant Colors” trend through these neon yellow trousers. Since the color is so bold, I paired it with neutral shades of grey, white and tan and added an extra pop with an orange Reed Krakoff bag.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Leather Jacket, Zara Sweater, Current/Elliott Jeans, Theory Sneakers, Stella McCartney Bag

People are always really surprised when they come to San Francisco because they are expecting “California” weather, aka sunny and warm. Unfortunately, this city by the bay always has a slight breeze and is a little backwards with the Spring/Summer being one of the coldest times of the year. This usually leaves people a little confused on what to wear and is a frequent question I receive.

I’ve recently teamed up with NET-A-PORTER.COM to showcase five SF Essentials that anyone living or visiting San Francisco will need! I’ll be posting a new essential each day this week that corresponds with one of NET-A-PORTER’s top trends for Spring – so be sure to check back daily!

The first essential is a leather jacket (this one is MICHAEL Michael Kors). The reason why I choose a leather jacket over any other jacket is because it’s so versatile. You can wear it to work, you can wear it out for drinks and you can wear it on the weekends and it’ll also keep you warm. You really can’t go wrong with a classic black leather jacket that pairs with practically everything in your closet. I created this look based on the “Parisian Glamour” trend, which I perceive as effortlessly cool and chic. Ripped jeans, a striped sweater, leather jacket, timelessly chic black handbag and red lipstick are always a winning combo.
