I’ve just returned from a week in Stockholm, one of my favorite cities. Ever. Like I want to be there still instead of other places. It was my third time visiting and I’m pretty comfortable with the lay of the land at this point, it’s pretty small in reality and their Williamburg is way closer to their Upper East Side if that makes any sense. Actually sort of right up against. Which makes a stroll by the Royal Palace a very real daily activity and which also means it’s always worth it to have your most cumbersome photo gear saddling you down. These shots were taken towards the end of my stay – the mission of the afternoon was to roam around medieval Gamla Stan, go to my favorite orange juice spot in the main square, and peer at the pelt shops. Bryan shot me on the rainy walk over in my favorite piece from his collaboration with Adrienne Landau, this sort of anime character appropriate cutout sweater shrug situation which is the snuggliest and also the weirdest way to keep warm. So nice in this deep jewel-ish blue. I layered it over a camisole I’ve had since high school and kept the bottom half sort of tough and waterproof. Seriously what is wrong with me to where this is more comfortable than a tshirt and jeans, I just don’t understand. Sorry to anyone else in LA looking at these photos the weather disconnect is all the way unforgivable. Never since moving in have I been driven to the point to seeing if my air conditioning actually works. Take me back to Northern Europe..
Simple sleek basics for hot days – the skirt is so thin it’s probably the most summer appropriate leather mini. If there is such a thing.

I’m so loving these days in LA before fashion month, I’m making sure to soak it all in before leaving for Stockholm on Saturday. Part of this translates to slipdresses and stilts in the afternoon sunshine, part of it is trying to pitch weird versions of tents in my backyard. This Reformation dress might look familiar, I wore the black version of it for a good part of Coachella and life in general so the navy plaid seemed felt like a good way to stockpile. Shot by Echo Park’s beautiful but also haunted looking houses today.

These basically pajamas would have been borderline socially unacceptable with any type of flat but slightly enhanced with the simple Chaos sandal I think it seems like I decided to wear this all on purpose. In public. The tank is from one of my favorite LA brands Mademoiselle, the pants I’ve been trying to figure out a good time to wear for a few months and this nine zillion degree week here was it.
