Mohair has never been more worth the fluff in your mouth syndrome before this sweater. Blanket-like and double thick to perfection. I ended up in Malibu tonight in my staple silk separates and this was just the thing to both keep me warm and turn my pajamas into something worth shooting against the painted red sky. Somewhat of a wild card piece but also weirdly something I pictured being able to wear 20,000 different ways upon sight.

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.

Matching way more than usual continues, shows promise of becoming a series. Proximity to the beach makes it more acceptable to wear two layers of sheer items as a full look, right? This Anine Bing combination is on the verge of being too sweet but the white ringer details give it that 1% athletic vibe to balance it all out. Paired with boots from a few seasons ago by The Kooples I found on eBay and my faithful giant duffle.

Bandana print has seeped into my closet like the liquid it isn’t over the past couple of years but this rendition is the most fun yet. Children’s summer pajama-like with a nice boxy cut and subtly slitted up shorts, a lot of requirements are being checked here. I wanted to keep the look sleek so paired the set with my beautiful new oh and first ever Manolos for an afternoon in Santa Monica. Not really casual but not too done – ideal.
