Between partying too hard last night and it being the hottest day of the summer yet, I couldn’t muster the energy to coordinate separates. I tried. The goal was to make it to a friend’s pool a few miles away but we ended up retreating home, making fresh salsa and lentil soup, and watching the sunset from the bedroom window. I really didn’t expect to get so attached to my now faded darker hair color..think I’m going to commit to it.

My Miu Miu wedges which had to be ordered from the Seattle Nordstrom (sale pickings are slim apparently) arrived this week, and though Colin keeps on mistaking the pink shoebox they came in for a donut box and being met with disappontment every time, they’ve otherwise brought great happiness. I’ve been looking for patchwork done right for what feels like and probably isn’t ages now, and they are ittttt. Now to find myself something patchy in dress format before summer’s end and I will be a happy little pseudo-bohemian.
Hi to everyone that came over from Kenza’s blog after she made a sweet and kind of funny post about me. I’ve been following her blog since last spring when my dear Swedish readers told me I looked like her and that I had to check out my twin..let me just say I WISH hahah, the girl is gorgeous, as well as being really sweet. Colin’s judgment is that I look more like Jessica Alba and she looks more like Jessica Biel..hmm weird. I think we just have very similar coloring..but anyway nothing but love for Kenza.

Variations on the same for the past couple days. This weighty sequined vest has been blending into the black in my closet for months and I’m thinking I’m crazy for not having worn it at least weekly.
We had a BBQ at our place for the 4th with our best friends that managed to go fairly undocumented, though with the number of lost phones it’s probably a good thing that cameras weren’t a larger part of the equation. It was apparently so fun that I didn’t find the need to leave the house the entire day or night..not to ride to the beach, not to observe fireworks, not to count the number of people from Arizona in the streets, nothing..I did learn that a lot can go down in a fairly small area. The only person wielding a camera was my buddy AK so I’m putting it on him to send me likely incriminating photos of me in aviators and a rasta crochet bikini examining my incinerated portobello mushroom (absentminded grill attendant) and mourning my sunscreen-defying extreme denim shorts tan. Zack and AK kindly pointed out that it looked ‘cool’, like ‘permanent thigh highs’..right. Jeans it is.

I’ve been lazily thinking about putting together my own economical version of that now infamous Christopher Kane chimp in distress dress for a few months now and finally got around to eBaying an appropriate tshirt. I reversed the tight top/full skirt silhouette but I still feel at least partially satiated on the Kane front.
Dragged Colin to Nordstrom yesterday and while I was trying on some heavily marked down Miu Miu patchwork wedges he pointed out this most beautiful sight..I made the mistake of trying them on too and you can now consider me obsessed. The price tag ruled them out..but oh my god. Alexander McQueen is a genius to make an homage to the motorcycle jacket in shoe format. I got the wedges though hahha. And the sweetest navy tie dyed cardigan from Forever21.
Praying for no clouds at the beach tomorrow, happy 4th :)

Nothing new but a new Topshop dress. From Saturday when we had some friends over and went out for some fun..too bad I look way too faded in most of the photos. Wore it with my white Wang Brenda bag. Two strange things about this dress – the website claims gray but it definitely shoots purple..a color I always avoid. And it’s cozy to the point of being boiling hot saved only by almost complete backlessness. Stranger that I love it anyway.
