Some shots from around my cozy home. We’re starting to pack up this week to move to a beautiful place more suited for the two of us and it just began to feel real and like maybe I can’t breathe. We’d been looking for months and encountered so many hiccups along the way that I was starting to think the whole thing was going to take years. I can be that way sometimes. Chris went to see a new listing on his own and seemed at once more serious and more excited when describing it to me than he’d been about any other place. The following afternoon we went together, him sort of hoping I would feel the same way about it and me sort of being slightly skeptical and weirdly nervous. And then I saw it was somehow everything we had dreamed of finding but better. As we took the next steps, everything fell into place almost eerily seamlessly and now at last it’s just hours before we get the keys! I can’t wait to make it feel like home and will be sure to share photos as we get there. SO. EXCITED.
Yes I’m jumping the gun with this shaggy beauty but sometimes you feel like throwing something over the slipdress. I have a little bit of a cream bathrobe for outdoors arsenal and am happy to add this one to the collection, from new line out of New York Ashley B. Luxurious outerwear that reads casual and gives instant Penny Lane vibe – YES.

This Mason by Michelle Mason romper is the ultimate easy piece..in my head it makes sense everywhere from the beach to a dinner with people you haven’t seen in a while. I love it dressed down with a hideous pool slide or -stock. Happy Labor day America!
(Acne dress, Chloé sandals, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream)
In collaboration with Marc Jacobs, I shot this series in Santa Monica to show my take on a free and dreamy vibe. Decided not to take this opportunity not to roll around in grass and instead shot these just after it got dark on the beach. Perfect 80 degree summer nights are the best thing about thousand degree days so it’s good to maximize those. I love this new version of Marc’s Daisy along with their idea of creating a dream capsule around it. Create your own capsule here and you’ll get it back in a year’s time! You’ll probably smile upon receipt.

Tasseled two piece (how scary does that sound though) for a blazing hot Friday in LA. Celebrated the end of the week over jalapeño infused tequila and guacamole mostly because tomorrow’s going to be spent packing and preparing for 15 hours in the air. Can’t wait to be back in Hong Kong!
Overalls shopping is wild card city so I mostly don’t do it. However, I’m not zoned out enough to not notice when the right pair finally appears. I love that these have the boyfriend fit thing figured out as well as that criss cross bleach-happy wash. I mucked around like so for a weekend afternoon at the Ace downtown waiting for people to ask me to paint stuff and got nothing. All this can mean is that everyone everywhere is ok with all in one denim! So exciting.
(Rory Beca camisole, Stone Cold Fox shorts, Chloé Paraty bag, Céline espadrilles, Brandy Melville hoodie)
My closet makes it easy to coordinate little white suits to run around in, so that’s what I do sometimes. Added some texture with my old favorite Chloé bag and a hoodie I keep on hand in the car to endure any environment temperature-regulated by a male.
I’ve been meaning to put this post together for so long but it was like, one more sunset photo, one more salad at Cafe Gratitude, one more documented nap on my roof. And also there was a little bit of God I love this no-sweater city so much, how do I try to do this right? And it would have been impossible to ever be finished shooting this photo diary but I’m going to cap it here.
(Reformation Taurus dress, Céline espadrilles and sunglasses, Maslin & Co. Towel)
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.
