Our long weekend was wonderful, and the city was just as quiet and uncrowded as I expected it would be (of course, we stayed well away from Union Square). On Thanksgiving Mark and I met some friends for dinner at one of our favorite comfort food restaurants, Home. On Saturday we saw the fantastic Yard Dogs Road Show, which is sort of a vaudevillian revue with music, dancers, magic, and burlesque. If you're in Los Angeles, the Yard Dogs will be playing on New Year's Eve at the Edison, which I'm sure will be an incredible show.

It certainly isn't warm enough for shorts and bare arms this week, but thankfully I made the most of it when it was. Funny that I had to wait until late November to wear some of my summertime outfits, but such is the bizarro weather in San Francisco. 

With this outfit I used one of my loose, open knit vests as a shirt, securing it with a fitted waistcoat as a top layer. To my surprise, the vest stayed put all day with no readjustment necessary; I think having the tank top underneath made the difference, because the vest was then sandwiched between two non-slippery layers of fabric.

Tank: American Eagle
Knit vest: F21
Waistcoat: Promod
Shorts: White House Black Market
Shoes: MIA

Since seeing how cute they are on you, I've been really wanting to try the flowing, drapey cotton vests. But I KNOW they won't look good on me. This, Audi, this though? I could get behind this. Pairing it with someone fitted over it... now I'm a bit more curious, to say the least.

Really cute - I love the little ruffles on the socks. And I want that waistcoat!

I love the mix of the drapey top and the fitted waistcoat. I would never have thought of doing that but it looks great.

I love the pretty neutral colors. That's awesome you got the vest to stay put all day, and it all looks really nice layered like that.

We've been having weird weather here in Southern California too! It was hot for a while, but now it's in the 50's and 60's, and the 30's and 40's and night/early morning. Loving the cooler weather for sure!
