The great thing about dressing patriotic in America is that our colors go so well together. Chances are, you already have loads of red, white and blue in your wardrobe -- just be careful not to look like a walking flag this Monday. Instead, try mixing textures and adding neutral colors to create a more modern Independence Day outfit.

SF Street Style: Breezy Colors, the Marc by Marc Jacobs It Bag, Denim Done Right + Cork Pumps on Yerba Buena Lane
I photographed Christine Tusher, SF editor for TheRundown.com, after our fun lunch at Bluestem Brasserie, on Yerba Buena Lane. It makes me so happy to see people flash their bright colors when the sun's out in SF. The cheerful color combo, paired with the sheer, flowiness of this top made Christine's casual denim day look really stand out again the business-casual downtown lunch crowd.

There were so many great casual looks at Off The Grid Ft. Mason, that it was hard to shoot just one person. In fact, I ended up finding a very stylish Madrid-turned-SF trio: Silvia, a Language Specialist at eBay, looking cute in her blue and yellow; little Leah, 18-months-old, with fantastic hair; Markus, head of SEO at Yahoo!, talk about a swoony dad.
SF Street Style: A Thrifted Leather Jacket, Killer Light Blue Balenciaga Bag + Summer Cut-out Oxfords at Off The Grid
Here's Linna Trinh, looking fabulous at Off The Grid, Fort Mason. Bay Area summer's are all about layering, and this look hits all the right lengths. Linna's ultra-cool, cream leather jacket has such a great cut, and a nice, relaxed fit. I couldn't believe she found it at a thrift store -- talk about a major score! It just goes to show, you can mix designer pieces (check out Linna's Balenciaga bag below) with thrift store finds, to make a composed, down-to-Earth look.
