Stepping into Summer

It’s time to get out our whites!  Actually I have been wearing white jeans year round, but this weekend still signals the start of the summer season.  Not much changes in California.  I miss living in a four season climate and putting away hats, boots and scarves and working at a more leisurely pace than in the winter.  I also miss being so excited for summer clothes.  My son and I may travel to San Francisco this summer (where I lived for ten years), so I know better than to put those sweaters too far into storage.  Regardless of the climate, the days will be longer and more leisurely.  The time from Memorial Day to the equinox and the official start of summer on June 21st are my favorite.  The days get just a little longer each day and feel full of the promise of summer fun.

This look puts me in a summer mood.  I styled this breezy top with my current favorite jeans, clutch and the first shoes I bought as a result of Instagram inspiration two years ago (I have linked several other options below).
