Ombré hair is the most brainless, commitment-free hairstyle – roots aren’t even part of the vocabulary and you get to enjoy the mental freedom of being one minor haircut away from being a single process girl again. Getting it there in the first place is the complicated part. I’ve had so many colorists just not get how to execute the highlights in a lighthanded, subtle way, even with what is essentially a power point presentation I’ve created on my iPad to try to avoid misunderstandings. This happened yet again last November and I made it through an aftermath that involved getting it re-dyed darker, chopping off the ends, and conditioning it with every mask I read even one good thing about. This seemed an acceptable strategy until a couple weeks ago when I realized that the lowlights had faded away completely and I was blonde enough to look completely blonde in some hats. Not wanting to screw around this time, I went straight to the experts at Frederic Fekkai last week to tone down the blonde and I think I finally have reason to never go anywhere else again. People are always Formspringing me hair questions so hopefully this helps you avoid the dreaded multiple trips to the salon – ask for Begoña and nothing bad will happen to you.

These heels add a sleek purposefulness to everything, I love adding them to more undone looks. I’m even alright with what I would have thought until recently was such a noncommittal heel height, something weird going on here.

Thank you Ben aka the most unlikely DSLR handler I personally know for taking these photos this past weekend in Hancock Park. I love how they came out! I wore the ideal blank slate of a jumpsuit with Elizabeth and James t-straps. I probably should have taken a shot of his shoes too because they were BLINDING and they had some sort of story associated with them about being in scarce supply in a global context. Next time.

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.

I’ve been addicted to these two pieces together this past week. Suede boots for day and mirrored foot corsets for night, one of the easier outfit transitions that’s gone down in my backseat. There’s a sentence that didn’t need to sound as dirty as it did. Anyway, a few of us went to go celebrate Bryan’s birthday a few days early in Malibu and the random weeknight reservation made for a perfectly quiet-except-for-us cabana experience. The Fords are fun and all but the real best accessory for airy type clothing has to be a pair of infernal heat lamps. Lincoln Center in February, please take note.
