Simple sleek basics for hot days – the skirt is so thin it’s probably the most summer appropriate leather mini. If there is such a thing.

I’m so loving these days in LA before fashion month, I’m making sure to soak it all in before leaving for Stockholm on Saturday. Part of this translates to slipdresses and stilts in the afternoon sunshine, part of it is trying to pitch weird versions of tents in my backyard. This Reformation dress might look familiar, I wore the black version of it for a good part of Coachella and life in general so the navy plaid seemed felt like a good way to stockpile. Shot by Echo Park’s beautiful but also haunted looking houses today.

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.

More from earlier this month in Shibuya – dressing for a day walking all day through wall-like humidity was something that I didn’t really struggle with. Wispy and barely existent fabrics are both easy to pack and all I own. I wore a pair of metal-bedecked gauzy culotte shorts with a beaten up Ragdoll tshirt which I later switched out for something a little more feminine and fluttery to go visit my grandparents. Almost as much fun to shoot in sensory overload heaven Shibuya again as it was to shop for like, banana shaped iPhone cases and tear-look eyeliner. Ok I only bought half of the items mentioned but I never said I make all the right choices.

I’m gonna be honest, I thought I had every cutout out there under my belt and filed into the blog archives. I’ve done the gaping side slash, the shoulder in both bodycon and oversized renditions, the vintage t-shirt held together by two non-vintage bits of thread, and my maybe favorite, the thumb. Cause who can bother with actual gloves. This Stylestalker piece proved me wrong and also anyone under the impression that long sleeved dresses are summer irrelevant.
