Indian Summer and Early Birthday Weekend

Sometime in October every year, we get a short period of unusually hot and humid weather in the Bay Area (aka Indian Summer). This is the time for us to pull out our shorts, tanks, and sandals to enjoy this rare occasion. This year it came right on time last week and of course I was ready for it even though it lasted a mere 3 days! Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for me to get a decent tan as evidenced by my photos below...
 Old Navy ruffle tank (similar) -- studded cutoff shorts from my sister (similar) -- Gap braided belt (similar) -- Delicious wedges (similar
 Accessories: unbranded sunglasses (similar) -- F21 white rose earrings (similar) -- Michael Kors mini runway watch (buy) -- "K" initial bracelet from UO (buy) -- faux pearl bracelet (similar) -- H&M braided bracelet (similar)

I also celebrated my birthday early this past weekend and watched the Blue Angels fly around San Francisco during Fleet Week...what an eventful and fun-filled couple of days!

 Thanks Ping for coming! I just realized we were kinda matching with our animal print and red outfits =P
