For day 2 of conferencing I figured I couldn't go wrong with my Helmut Lang blazer. Originally I intended to wear this blazer with the All Saints dress I posted yesterday, but sadly the proportions aren't right; the blazer is just a little too long in front for the dress. Thankfully these cropped pants had just arrived via Gilt, and the sunny weather that day offered the perfect chance to try them out. They're really comfortable, and the pale beige color means they match my skin tone and thus don't shorten my legs. Expect to see a lot more of these pants -- and surprisingly soon, too.

If I look extra happy here, it's for two reasons: Jess was in town, and I was spending my workday in San Francisco. If it isn't already obvious, let me just state for the record that I am giddy with love for the city I live in. It never gets old for me; all the interesting things to do, amazing restaurants to try out, beautiful scenery, and most of all the people. Not a day goes by that I'm not filled with pride and gratitude to be a part of this unique and special place. I love it SO MUCH!!

Ahem. As I was saying... After I got home from the conference, I dressed the outfit down by swapping out my jacket, shoes, and necklace. Georgie was there to supervise.

Black blazer: Helmut Lang
Top: Ann Taylor
Pants: Cynthia Steffe

Really, that blazer looks great with everything.

Hi Audi,
I'm a long-time reader and I'm always struck by how much you love where you live; I was wondering if you'd consider writing a post on your favourite haunts in San Francisco? I'm planning a trip there from the UK this September and I'd be really interested to hear your take on the best things about the city. I know the blog is mainly fashion and style, but I thought I'd ask just in case!
Beautiful blazer, by the way :)

Ah, San Francisco. #1 on the list of places I would move to if I won the lottery.

I've really liked your conference looks. The new pants are very cool.

K. Line: Everything but the All Saints dress, apparently. But you're right, the blazer is astoundingly versatile; I'm still congratulating myself on that purchase.

Anna: Actually I've had that idea milling about in my head for some time. So yes, it's on the agenda! I was thinking to do a series; one post about shopping, one about sightseeing, and one about food and entertainment.

The cut of that blazer is so beautiful!

Might that blazer qualify as your best purchase ever?

Anna said...

Audi - Fantastic! I'll be looking forward to it!

I can't decide which I like better, the black blazer or the green military jacket. Both look amazing! I'm new to your blog, so I don't want to be too presumptuous, but you know what would really top off all your outfits? The right glasses! Do you ever wear them? If you happen to be cursed with perfect eyesight, I highly recommend straining your eyes for several days in a row just to burn them out. Then you can get some glasses! They are the perfect accessory for any nerd.

Gina: Ha! Sadly, I DO have perfect vision and apparently lack the sartorial commitment to blow out my eyesight for some stylish specs. I'll try to do better!
