4th of July in San Francisco is unlike anywhere else. I remember my first year here, I moved in May, and by the time the 4th came around I was so ready for a summer experience (I moved from Phoenix, so I was used to summer BBQ’s and pool parties) and I got so excited for the 4th. Then, when the day finally came around, we cooked BBQ chicken and corn and went up to our building’s roof to watch the fireworks. I kid you not, it was about 40 degrees, windy and freezing. I spent about 3 minutes on the roof (in a parka and scarf) and then ended up going downstairs to get warm.

Needless to say, 4th of July in the city is typically cold and windy, hence today’s getup. I love this J.Crew scarf (it’s so easy to throw on and go, instantly tying together any outfit) paired with my new Pleated Empire tunic that’s so soft I wear it all day to work and then to bed that night.

Luckily for me, I’m jetting off to Seattle this weekend to spend the 4th with my friends. Fingers crossed for blue skies and bikini weather!

It was about 80 degrees in Salt Lake, so I wore lightweight dresses and this hat to shade from the sun. Along with the garden scene and heat, this was the perfect summer look.

The Grand America in Salt Lake City is truly one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever been to — and it was the perfect backdrop for some fun outfit pics ;). My friend Claire was nice enough to play photographer for the week and I can’t believe how great the photos turned out!
