Weird amount of things that I love going on with this little suit for being so simple – one piece, passable as pyjamas, hooded, smushy knit..and the easiest thing to throw on in three seconds when running out the door. Though the chances of having to do that might be slim since it’s also become my default for lazing around the house. Possible step backward.
I have a million boring things to do tomorrow before driving up to LA for the weekend to welcome Bryan for his first visit to California. Halloween ideas are non-existent..and I was so sure that inspiration would have struck by now. Slowly starting to scramble.

Sunset at Presidio Park in San Diego, a park that no one seems to care about based on its dependable desertedness. It’s high on a pinnacle above the tourist trap they call Old Town and overlooks a tangle of freeways heading to the beach…so many people drive around the base of it every and I’m pretty sure they never look up. I got these shorts at Opening Ceremony in LA..I think I like that they’re so thick and warm for how short they are. The slanted cut kills me. Actually a weird number of pieces in my wardrobe fall under this cozy/barely any surface area category so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised that my first Pendleton purchase would look like this instead of some sort of useful outerwear type of thing. Worn here with my favorite top and bag.

From a couple weekends ago at Paramount Studios, during the last full-on heat wave weekend we had here. My friend Andrew (Teen Vogue’s Style Blogger – Bryan and I mock him endlessly for not having an actual blog whilst throwing that title around) came out to LA to make sure everything went smoothly ie. accompany me while testing out Toast’s red velvet cupcakes and having drinks at bafflingly farmy smelling bars, peruse Pendleton at Opening Ceremony and try to convince me I needed a pair of Alexander Wang boots I probably need but continue to resist, and introduce me to the crooners at Dresden. Tangents. The party started off with a show put on by Michael Kors around the fountain, and the paper lanterns hanging in the trees and white couches scattered across the grass made for a beautiful scene. This month’s cover girl Lauren Conrad was in attendance looking impossibly polished, Alexa Chung DJ-ed, Amy Astley was as gracious as ever, and Andrew ran around looking slightly worried until we migrated to Hemingway’s so that actual worrisome things could happen.
What really matters: I’m joining in the choir of Lita obsessers. These are the most comfortable shoes to boost one so high, ever.

I decided that I like the backs of things more than the fronts of things. Also, I appreciate Topshop’s long-standing appreciaton of the exposed zipper. Just got to NY today and am stoked to tell you guys that I’ll be in the Rebecca Minkoff presentation on Sunday! She’s designed a dress inspired by me and I can’t wait to try it on at the fitting tomorrow and meet everyone. In addition I’ll be speaking at the IFB conference tomorrow (well, today at this point) on the subject of creating content and blogging in general – let me know specific questions you have on the matter that you’d like to hear me elaborate on cause the plan right now is looking terrifyingly improv.
