I can’t even click in Zara’s direction without ordering the next piece I’ve convinced myself will bring together my spring wardrobe. An allure strong enough to validate a skort is never nothing – I love the clean lines and wrap effect going on here. I wore it with a paper thin leather top by J Brand and the sandals I barely took off last summer because it’s completely spring in LA and I couldn’t be happier about it.

Black ankle boots have no season and eternal applicability – obsessed with these four pairs lately.

Yesterday morning I stopped by Swedish transplant Anine Bing‘s studio in Silverlake, something I’ve been meaning to do for so long now. Her designs are simple and casual but the details make everything feel special – slightly roided out zippers, a bare bones moccasin done in pony hair, tshirts with heathered stripes. Everything seemed like it would be such an obvious addition to my frantically running around LA during the day section of my closet. And that biker jacket! How was I without it for so long, I can’t even compute.

The cracked out shoe + most basic clothing possible formula never fails me, so why not take it to the extreme? The Tom Ford story begins with the dark shift that occurred when I wore these shoes on a shoot last month here in LA. 20 minutes on my feet and it was over. I started to envision all the ways that they would impart meaning to the outfits both boring and event-appropriate and then just wasn’t strong enough to resist. I eased into my initiation with the most relaxed of outfits, a shrunken sweatshirt top and a perforated leather skirt that’s become a new go-to. Can’t wait to play around with these more.

Holographic accessories are addictive, I’m finding. I think it’s because they fall into that category of slightly infantile things that make you smile. And they look really good with outfits that are all white. That’s an important one.
