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.

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.
