I got this Isabel Marant skirt in Paris – the loincloth vibe and minimal surface area were so perfect for Coachella. I’ll post the full look from day one next!

Ombré hair is the most brainless, commitment-free hairstyle – roots aren’t even part of the vocabulary and you get to enjoy the mental freedom of being one minor haircut away from being a single process girl again. Getting it there in the first place is the complicated part. I’ve had so many colorists just not get how to execute the highlights in a lighthanded, subtle way, even with what is essentially a power point presentation I’ve created on my iPad to try to avoid misunderstandings. This happened yet again last November and I made it through an aftermath that involved getting it re-dyed darker, chopping off the ends, and conditioning it with every mask I read even one good thing about. This seemed an acceptable strategy until a couple weeks ago when I realized that the lowlights had faded away completely and I was blonde enough to look completely blonde in some hats. Not wanting to screw around this time, I went straight to the experts at Frederic Fekkai last week to tone down the blonde and I think I finally have reason to never go anywhere else again. People are always Formspringing me hair questions so hopefully this helps you avoid the dreaded multiple trips to the salon – ask for Begoña and nothing bad will happen to you.

These heels add a sleek purposefulness to everything, I love adding them to more undone looks. I’m even alright with what I would have thought until recently was such a noncommittal heel height, something weird going on here.

Thank you Ben aka the most unlikely DSLR handler I personally know for taking these photos this past weekend in Hancock Park. I love how they came out! I wore the ideal blank slate of a jumpsuit with Elizabeth and James t-straps. I probably should have taken a shot of his shoes too because they were BLINDING and they had some sort of story associated with them about being in scarce supply in a global context. Next time.
