Sunday: a regular mid-March 85 degrees. I didn’t really plan to end up on sand but scrounged together something beach-ish from the nether regions of my Jeep once it became clear that was the plan. That moment being the one when we braved the 405 in an effort to get west. This Ref dress was simple enough to go moonlit dinner-appropriate with my palest skinniest heeled sandals. Handiness of garment + laziness of me = best.

Inky elevated basics for another beautiful Santa Monica sunset. This sweater had been haunting me since the exact moment it hit the runway – I love the notched hem and massive cutout. The most ’90s thing to somehow not actually look that ’90s on.

So lucky to have freakish 80 degree weather in LA this week cause something about the tshirt by itself option is such a relief. One of the angles I took when shopping the H&M collection with just the slightest bit of foaming at the mouth was buying every white tshirt in sight, including ones that were targeted at other genders. Cut and opacity-wise, there was a lot going on that was perfect. The rolled sleeve version is super ideal for dressing down this main line structured piece along with all things Goyard that came away from Paris fashion week with me.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to my beloved readers!

“Freezing” LA is the best – the streets are all to yourself and the sunshine is as relentless as ever. I’ve spent the past few days in these jeans which I came across during a closet rummage initiated by a search for something other than a leather miniskirt. Anine Bing got that elusive slouchy/skinny factor just right. Worn with a giant fluff cloud and the faithful olive wedges.

(Vintage Escada cardigan, T Alexander Wang tank, Isabel Marant skirt, Theyskens’ Theory Alito boots, Theory bag, Weekday earring, Céline Audrey sunglasses)

Not sure I’ve ever worn this many colors that mice come in at once before. I dressed this structured Isabel skirt down with one of my favorite thrift store finds of all time. Cocoon blankets over summer outfits = perfect for LA’s take on winter.
