I was wondering when I was going to come back to LA to find that it wasn’t summer anymore and hey the shift happened to coincide with my acquisition of the shaggiest cabin-appropriate cardigan from Isabel Marant for H&M. This piece is actually from the kid’s collection – size 12 year old is totally enough material to go around. Not one to discriminate clothing by intended audience, I picked up some men’s tshirts too..see more pieces on my Instagram. So obsessed with this collaboration!

One of my best Sundays this month was a wide open sunny one spent walking around Shimokitazawa, which I’m going to hate myself for describing as the Williamsburg of Tokyo but there it is. Just two subway stops from my Shibuya safety zone, this area is a complete requirement for anyone visiting the city. It’s full of tiny alleyways and things that charmingly look like they’re going to collapse and everything that you want to decorate your home with except it’s too pointy for suitcase transport. Make sure to visit Village Vanguard because they sell everything your subconscious has thus far failed to will into existence. I carried the Goyard tote I got in Paris to fill up with my purchases and wore a mock necked nude dress from The Dayz Tokyo whose shop in Laforet I weirdly visited multiple times. All about the simple silhouette and the ease with which it can be dressed down.

(BCBG poncho sweater, Isabel Marant folded skirt, Céline wedges and Audrey sunglasses, Valentino “My Own Code” clutch, Acne hat)

From exactly one week ago post-Tokyo and pre-Paris, a fun day around Abbott Kinney to check on the old Pacific, lunch at Lemonade, and stop by the always well edited Satine Boutique. I wore a Frankenstein-y sort of outfit with a Socal casual top half and France-originating bottom half. I love this softer take on the Mexican poncho so well loved by surfers and every student everywhere in the nineties. The perfect piece to try and fail to stay warm in at the beach and also fit hats under because head-layering matters.

Cause why should all bulletproof vests be functional? This was one of my favorite pieces that went down Barbara Bui’s fall runway. Sometimes dressing like a video game character is something I like to do. The Bui team tailored it perfectly so now I pretty much have to keep it forever. I wore this on one of Paris fashion week’s hottest days – these were shot walking through the Tuileries, outside the Sonia Rykiel show, and crossing Pont Neuf at sunset on the way to dinner.

Biker jackets bought a size too big on purpose and biker jackets that are designed pre-oversized by people that are perfect at what they do – very different things. This Acne jacket is slightly my new best friend. Worn in Paris with the least summery summer outfit my suitcase had to offer.
