Pandora approached me to put together some bracelets from their Essence collection to represent the women in my life – I love the idea of individually selecting charms that represent key values. I’ve always admired the relationship that my mom has with her sisters and tried my best to put together a combination of pieces to honor it. The way that she approaches life has been continually inspiring to me – she taught me that believing that anything is possible to the point of being irrational is basically the only way. She is the strongest person I know and I love being smart enough now to appreciate her relentless and heavily emoji sprinkled texts. I chose strength, confidence, and wisdom – all the things I hope she successfully taught me. The perfect gift for someone in your life who needs to know how much you appreciate them.

“Freezing” LA is the best – the streets are all to yourself and the sunshine is as relentless as ever. I’ve spent the past few days in these jeans which I came across during a closet rummage initiated by a search for something other than a leather miniskirt. Anine Bing got that elusive slouchy/skinny factor just right. Worn with a giant fluff cloud and the faithful olive wedges.

Not sure I’ve ever worn this many colors that mice come in at once before. I dressed this structured Isabel skirt down with one of my favorite thrift store finds of all time. Cocoon blankets over summer outfits = perfect for LA’s take on winter.

Some of the best jeans are the ones you meant to turn into one more pair of microscopic shorts but didn’t. I found these at Jet Rag on La Brea earlier this year and just got around to chopping them off to what I think is a length that’s gonna work for me. Worn with a current season super fuzzy Zara sweater and my endlessly useful Chloé sandals.

Shot in a time warp on the way out to Santa Monica on a November summer day (?!). Wearing a stack of your favorite things at once is sometimes a valid way to get dressed if you don’t think about it too hard. Slight winterization courtesy of the holy grail of fuzzy slouchy beanies which I picked up in Harajuku in the amount of three. And all I found out about Americas Finest Products is that a dull whirring is involved in creating them.
(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.

How to make body conscious look fresh: generic slip-ons from Harajuku and some of that pale Venice Blvd. sunshine. Plus Friend of Mine just does it right in the first place. Called the Danger dress for a reason, careful how you walk in this one..
(Lovers + Friends for Revolve Fun Times Jacket, Isabel Marant for H&M tank and sweatpants, Phillip Lim shearling clutch, Barbara Bui biker boots)
Today in and around downtown LA. Something about validating a tank and sweats combination with a double take is-that-an-animal bag, a simple jacket, and badass boots feels like you’re cheating the world in the best way. I’ve been a little obsessed with these pants since returning from Paris, see them styled with the matching top and a silver mesh belt over this way.
