I’ve worn the black version of these shorts out to the nth degree and have convinced myself that lace shorts are now a wardrobe basic so it felt not too crazy to go for them in coral. More colors please Lover! I broke them in yesterday with a Rag & Bone mullet top and 2011 throwback footwear.

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.

Though I dread being asked to sum up my style in a neat coupling of synonyms, it happens often enough to where I’ve decided that “minimal yet bohemian” is a nice way to answer before mumbling something about how I get dressed based on my mood. But this look is exactly that. I love Aurélie Bidermann’s Copacabana collection – the thick colorful braids on gold just scream summer.

I’ve fallen behind on posting and having trouble believing that these were taken almost two weeks ago now! Shot on a bright perfect day in Silverlake aka my 2011 stomping grounds. Love the pointed hem and secondary spine detail on this whisper thin knit.

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.
