Mark Twain hit the nail on the head when he said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco”. The weather could not be less desirable right now. One of the many reasons I am excited to be heading to out of town this week! I am ready for some hot hot heat…bring it on NYC.

Also feeding my excitement is this new Foley + Corinna purse. Not only is it the perfect travel bag, but I am loving it for everyday wear, too. Kind of life changing after carrying around the world’s most impractical purse for months.

Have any shopping/eating/drinking recommendations in New York? I would loooove to hear them, pretty please share!! <3

    I love this outfit, especially the sweater and ASOS striped shirt. Absolutely phenomenal.

    Oh I love that MT quote. And right now, I’d pay a lot of money for a San Fran summer (dealing with 102+ in the midwest). Your outfit makes me REALLY want the cool.

    I love this shoot. The outfit plays well with the colors and tones of the building in the background. Can you tell me what building that is? I just got back from a week long visit in San Francisco and I fell in love the architecture. (and the people and the food and the vintage shops!)

  4. Anna 16. Jul, 2011 at 8:21 pm #

    late comment but definitely look up PDT (aka please don’t tell) when you’re in NY! It’s a speakeasy kind of like Bourbon & Branch in SF. Worth checking out for sure and try the Humm Dog while you’re there.

    Love the look…where is the ring from? I have been eyeing a similar Marcia Moran…could it be?

  6. Sofia 15. Jul, 2011 at 8:14 am #

    Sooooo strange to have to wear a sweater in July. Lovely sweater, though.

  7. Marie 15. Jul, 2011 at 3:07 am #

    Love this outfit!Where did you get this awesome three ring. I’m loving it!
    In New York you should defintely go to Williamsburg and have a chicken/cranberry sandwich at Fabienne’s on bedford avenue! And i really recommand Café Gitane (242 Mott Street). Enjoy the avocado sandwich! And Highline Park in Chelsea is perfect!

  8. Sara 14. Jul, 2011 at 10:36 pm #

    Have a great time in NY! I’m jealous you get to experience some hot weather for a change! I think I may need a pair of pants like yours… They seem so warm and perfect for SF!

  9. Lauren 14. Jul, 2011 at 9:29 pm #

    Great contrast!!! I love the yellow stripes layered with a chunky knit! Oh and the shoes are gorgeous..


  10. Cortnie Elizabeth 14. Jul, 2011 at 9:19 pm #

  14. sam 14. Jul, 2011 at 10:57 am #

    LOOOVE this look so much! i love that your sweater has a hood!!! And yes, I’m from SF, but currently in Manila, and I know what you mean about the cold weather! As much as I hate to admit it, I kinda miss it! haha! i miss being able to wear my chucky sweaters and warm leggings :)

  15. In elegance we trust 14. Jul, 2011 at 10:55 am #

    I aadore the outfit! The accessories are stunning!

  16. Cara 14. Jul, 2011 at 9:30 am #

    Love the big sweater, and the fact that it has that amazing hood just puts it over the top! Love the look, so chic! Hopefully it warms up for you ;)

    What is with this weather uhhh. I need some sun ASAP! Love the look nonetheless.


  20. the desert fox 13. Jul, 2011 at 6:19 pm #

    Oh man, I agree. I was freezing in the city on Monday. Usually downtown/civic center is sunnier but no chance. But anyways, you look amazing as usual. Love the knit and the sunnies. And your hair.


  21. monkeyshines 13. Jul, 2011 at 5:00 pm #

    dandy look! adore the wedges and the layering of the shirts!

  22. Karoline 13. Jul, 2011 at 4:40 pm #

    :) everywhere an anywhere you go in new york is fun so no recommendations just meander! :) hahaha

    love Sigrid


  28. Melissa 13. Jul, 2011 at 9:29 am #

    NY, how fun! I agree about summers in SF being cold. When it’s too hot in southern CAlifornia, a mini road trip to SF always does the trick. As far as shopping in NY, my favorite area is Soho – along Broadway/Broom area and…Topshop, of course! I also like the wide assortment of boutiques in the area, as it’s a good mix of high, low, and everything in between. Enjoy!

  29. eat.sleep.wear. 13. Jul, 2011 at 9:14 am #

    EPIC shoes!!! And I am so jealous of you in these layers right now considering its in the 90s here and HUMIDDD. LOVE the look and photos as always! xo, Kim

  30. jamie 13. Jul, 2011 at 9:10 am #

    That F+C bag is gorgeous!!! Mine is so much smaller but I’ve been dying for a bigger one. I love the shape of this, it’s not the same as the city tote and it’s a nice change!!!

  31. CessOviedo 13. Jul, 2011 at 7:54 am #

    NYC is perfect on summer! Loved the shoes, are very unique!

    I can’t even imagine wearing that sweater here! You are in for a huge heat wave! Love the look though!

  33. Leah 13. Jul, 2011 at 7:15 am #

    LOVE this sweater with the bright stripes sticking out of the bottom!

    xo L.

    You look amazing in this!! Love those pants!!

    I’m SO jealous of the weather you guys are having – it is 110 degrees here with the heat index and I am melting!


  35. Liz 13. Jul, 2011 at 7:02 am #

    <3 the bag. I would take a walk on the highline in Chelsea, and wind up a beergarden either at the Standard or Tom Colicchio's new one at the top of the walk.

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks so much for the tip! I have always wanted to check out the highline…I hear it is really cool. And we’re staying at the Standard so super convenient! :)

  36. Kristina 13. Jul, 2011 at 6:59 am #

    Love the peak of stripes! Such a perfectly layered outfit for the cold days we’re having here in SF.


  37. Belle de Couture 13. Jul, 2011 at 6:41 am #

    Effortless and so chic! Those heels are KILLING me!

  41. Penny Pincher Fashionista 13. Jul, 2011 at 4:22 am #

    Wow – can’t believe you’re able to wear a sweater right now! I gotta admit, I’m a little jealous. I love those chunky loose knits over something slim cut, like your pants – great combo!

  42. The Fancy Teacup 13. Jul, 2011 at 4:13 am #

    Wishing we had cooler weather here, it was 115 degrees yesterday. You look so chic and beautiful! Especially enamored with your Foley + Corinna bag, the leather leggings, and those laser cut wedges.

    ♥, Jamie

    Thank you! <3

    115?! Wowza! That is crazy hot. I think that our climates need to meet halfway. :)

    awesome knit, love these leather pants too

  44. Christine 13. Jul, 2011 at 12:30 am #

    Is that a recent Anthropologie sweater?? I think I’m in love! The weather in England is sucky too right now but at least you’re in beautiful San Francisco! I’d still be jealous even if it rained for a year! :) x

    Laura Reply:

    Unfortunately I got it on sale about a year ago. They might still have it online but probably a long shot. Good luck!

    I hope your weather improves — I am dying to visit England! :)

    I love your shoes!! This year seems to be a crazy summer everywhere, here in Germany it’s hot on one day and cold ton the next.

    How did I know before clicking on your tweet that these “Summer In San Francisco” pictures would be entirely sun-less? Haha :) Love the knit, the pants, and the bag girl.

    Shake Shack, Katz Delicatessen, Levain, Wafles and Dinges, Il Laboratorio del Gelato, Pommes Frites, Ippudo, 53rd and 6th Halal Cart, Momofuku = my recommendations for NY. Ohh and Nolita House was an awesome pub/lounge. Enjoy NY and all that sun!!

    Laura Reply:

    Woohoo! Thanks SO much for the awesome recommendations — I am obsessed with Katz. I will definitely be stopping by for a sandwich. :)

  52. Eli 12. Jul, 2011 at 10:28 pm #

    I think even your photos deceivingly make it seem not as gloomy, it was practically raining in my neighborhood!

    It’s so funny when you can’t relate to other blogger outfits, I love the chic casualness of yours, summery but still warm to survive here. Not to mention the amazing details of your shoes! Hope you have an amazing time in NY!

  53. Julie khuu 12. Jul, 2011 at 10:04 pm #

    I’m really digging the weather as of late…all the better to rock those chunky knits like Fall’s coming twice this year! Like you, I’m a girl who loves my layers! Beautifully styled doll!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

    Love your outfit and the iconic background. Those pants are fierce! NY..Buddakan for dinner with friends, Minetta Tavern for a romantic dinner a deux, 11 Madison Park for when you’re breaking the bank. 1 Oak for partying, Boom Boom Room for when you’re really partying, Bubbys or Tribeca Grill for brunch. Shopping, head to Topshop, Intermix and everything in between and if you’ve never been, the landmark Tiffany on 5th. Enjoy!!!

    Laura Reply:

    Wow, you rock! Thanks for the great tips. I will definitely look into all of these places. Appreciate it!! xo

  55. Kristen 12. Jul, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    Funny, one of my co-workers recently mentioned the same Mark Twain quote…guess we are really feeling it this summer! Loving those wedges!

  56. giedre 12. Jul, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    I’ve never been to SF before, but did you visit Kaunas when you were in LT? The area you’re standing in looks so much like Laisves Aleija (the main street) right next to the soboras, that I had to look twice. :p Alsoooo, kind of in love with your bag.

    Laura Reply:

    I believe we did!! That trip was a whirlwind, we saw so many awesome things it is hard to remember what was what, haha! :)


  57. pushups with polish 12. Jul, 2011 at 9:58 pm #

    gahh I know, it is so cold in SF right now I HATE IT. I had to bust out my boots today. but seriously, way to make a negative into a positive with this outfit.

  58. Maria 12. Jul, 2011 at 9:57 pm #

    Love this outfit! The hood on that sweater is perfect. xx
