This skirt is one of my favorite purchases this summer – double sided so it feels a little more substantial, and soft enough to want to commission a set of sheets in the same material. CONTINUE READING
I must have either have lost or sold off my denim shirt stash cause I never see them lying around anymore. So when I came across this one while making my way through the selection at The Kooples, it reminded me that I might wear one if only it were in my general mess radius. The overdyed pocket marks and a level of softness that could only have been achieved by significant battering make it a little bit more special too. Wore it with my black Zara skirt and cat eyes.

I picked up this leather skirt (yes, essentially a loincloth) in both red and black while I was in Paris, black was an obvious yes but the red one seemed like I could have fun with it too. Wore this on what was apparently the hottest day of the year in London. The humidity makes these summer days so much gnarlier than California’s! I couldn’t stand to keep my hair down for longer than it took to snap these photos. And I’m not even going to try to describe the conditions in the Tube on the way there. A couple days before this I was an intricate multiple knit and shearling combination to keep warm and even that was barely even doing the trick. Good thing I brought (or..bought while over here) options. Oh, and I have no idea why it looks like I put in purple hair extensions here, swear to you no such thing happened.
Cooling off in the shade in Green Park. London is amazing, so much to do here at every second and everyone is so nice! The first day I met with some lovely people from Topshop for breakfast and they convinced me – I’m definitely going to make it a point to come back for London Fashion Week in a couple months.

Taking a morning walk in Milan’s Brera district..I have to say all this travel and jet lag has really made me into the perfect morning person I never knew I had in me, I’m up by at least 7 every day no matter where I am. The world takes on a different feel when you aren’t maintaining consistent vampire hours. I even just managed to already make the the breakfast buffet at businessman hour at my hotel here in Roppongi. Made for some funny covert observation opportunities. I found these neutral suede wedges at a little store tucked away under an austere stone building on a rainy afternoon in Milan..love them with socks but can’t wait to wear them under the California sun bare legged with shorts and a tshirt.
