What to Wear: Summer in San Francisco

It is cold in the city right now. Foggy, windy - classic July in San Francisco. In order to enjoy summer fashion, you have to be creative about sneaking in light pieces in layers. Here's a perfect outfit for the varied climate. At the base layer, you could be at Stinson Beach, with all the pieces you're ready to brave the Golden Gate Bridge:

Shirt - Navy blue cotton blouse with full sleeves from DVF on sale.
Sweater - Metallic beach cardigan from J.Crew.
Trench - Amazing prussian blue trench from Burberry, for inspiration.
Jeans - In white from the Gap.
Scarf - White scarf from Forever 21.
Sunglasses - Aviators.
Purse - Canvas and leather bag is beach tote-inspired for the office from Land's End.

I love how you pulled that together; it's warm without looking all bundled up. I really like the look of scarfs, but I can never get them to look the way they have them styled in the stores. Any scarf advice?

I have to admit that I've watched how-to videos on scarf tying online! That's a good place to start.
