Why is the beach so empty? Cause the wind was of the strength level that would barely let a towel lie flat. Especially one with so many corners. So also a really funny day to break in this open all over the place dress! Before quietly stashing it away with my 90 other black slipdresses.
Also – a thing about me is that I’m obsessed with a Podcast called Weird Adults with Little Esther, and one of my life dreams came true when Esther had me on last week. You will only understand how much I actually mean that if you listen to it. This way to an hour you won’t want back.

So excited to be in Sydney to launch my collaboration with Sunday Somewhere! For the past year or so we’ve been working on sunglasses just basic enough and just crazy enough. And now we have two styles in three color ways each to bring you – the Tokyo and the Paris. Chris and I woke up at 4am the second day here in Australia and (his brutal idea) booked it to the beach to catch the Bondi sunrise. I’ll be sharing more photos of the shades soon but here’s your first official look on the blog! xx
(Alexander Wang hooded mohair shrug, T Alexander Wang chiffon tank, Lover shorts)
Mohair has never been more worth the fluff in your mouth syndrome before this sweater. Blanket-like and double thick to perfection. I ended up in Malibu tonight in my staple silk separates and this was just the thing to both keep me warm and turn my pajamas into something worth shooting against the painted red sky. Somewhat of a wild card piece but also weirdly something I pictured being able to wear 20,000 different ways upon sight.

From exactly one week ago post-Tokyo and pre-Paris, a fun day around Abbott Kinney to check on the old Pacific, lunch at Lemonade, and stop by the always well edited Satine Boutique. I wore a Frankenstein-y sort of outfit with a Socal casual top half and France-originating bottom half. I love this softer take on the Mexican poncho so well loved by surfers and every student everywhere in the nineties. The perfect piece to try and fail to stay warm in at the beach and also fit hats under because head-layering matters.
(Topshop bandana print shirt and shorts, Manolo Blahnik Chaos sandals, Dylan Kain Ryder bag)
Bandana print has seeped into my closet like the liquid it isn’t over the past couple of years but this rendition is the most fun yet. Children’s summer pajama-like with a nice boxy cut and subtly slitted up shorts, a lot of requirements are being checked here. I wanted to keep the look sleek so paired the set with my beautiful new oh and first ever Manolos for an afternoon in Santa Monica. Not really casual but not too done – ideal.

Hanging out at my favorite unincorporated surf town. Bolinas is only accessible via windy roads mountain goats might think twice about and purposefully unmarked by signs, but once you’re there it’s all wild raspberries growing on the side of the road, surfers loping towards the sand, and however you would describe the vibe where people are wringing out their laundry and setting up lawn chairs where the mayor’s office would probably have been if it existed. I wore bisque on ivory on white in the form of $6 liquor store shades. The easiest.
From last weekend in beautiful Nassau! I was invited by The Cove Atlantis to hang out for a couple days where the only brain utilization necessary was deciding how to allocate time properly to falling asleep in a cabana, swimming with dolphins, wandering around the casino in terrified awe, feasting at Nobu, and swimming in the actually warm ocean. Don’t hate me too much, the trip was so nonstop that it was kind of over in an instant. I wore about three and a half scraps of clothing the whole time, mostly consisting of a Marysia bikini, Ark & Co. scalloped shorts, and an old season Isabel Marant dress I pounced on recently. That chain bedecked knee boot season was one of the best. Thank you to The Cove for spoiling us and the crew Matthew, Pamela Love, Rebecca Minkoff, Samantha Barks, Selita Ebanks, and Bryanboy for general hijinks. Cue the Instagram dot connectors!
