Exploring perfect patches of clovers and low hanging branches with Colin…I found the jacket and collar at the same time at a thrift store a couple weeks ago. I’m pretty lazy and most everything I wear is based on things being present at the same time. So I wore them together in a bastardized ode to Vanessa Bruno. With my shiny new bag..I’m so happy with it, it’s sort of busy and simple and satchel-y and being both black and brown seems to go with everything even if it doesn’t.

Sunset at Presidio Park in San Diego, a park that no one seems to care about based on its dependable desertedness. It’s high on a pinnacle above the tourist trap they call Old Town and overlooks a tangle of freeways heading to the beach…so many people drive around the base of it every and I’m pretty sure they never look up. I got these shorts at Opening Ceremony in LA..I think I like that they’re so thick and warm for how short they are. The slanted cut kills me. Actually a weird number of pieces in my wardrobe fall under this cozy/barely any surface area category so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised that my first Pendleton purchase would look like this instead of some sort of useful outerwear type of thing. Worn here with my favorite top and bag.

An outfit I made up in the backseat of Bryan’s car out of basics I’d stuffed into Colin’s backpack over the course of a few days. Tights are always the most entertaining to battle in small spaces. But they’re also my favorite thing to wear in the rain (they never get as miserably soaked as pants)…along with platform shoes for the freedom to step directly into smallish puddles. This bag makes everything look like I wore it on purpose.

I’m not sure quite how to classify this Therese Rawsthorne piece..I definitely thought it was just a sheer long dress with a cool curved waist when I held it up off the rack at Black Box and even when I tried it on I must have stuck both legs through one hole (this was after enlisting both Colin’s and Anna’s help to figure out how to put it on) because I left convinced I had bought a dress..tried it on the next day and turns out it’s some sort of extreme sheer trousers hybrid. SWEET. I celebrated with a small jig. We took these shots during a couple free hours spent getting our last dose of New Zealand coffee (so good) and walking around aimlessly.

Waiting to head to the opening ceremony the first night of NZFW..lounging in the lobby of the Hilton and trying to look alive after the most disorienting of flights and time changes, wearing Bodkin sweater, vintage hooded jacket, Forever 21 black stone ring, 3.1 Phillip Lim leather shorts, fashiontoast x Dannijo Loveless ring, and BCBG Mendel boots.
