Earlier this month I took a quick trip to Orlando for the opening of the second Carmen Steffens store in the US – it was my first time there, actually kind of my first time in Florida unless I’m forgetting a pre-brainwashing childhood trip. In which case my mom will make sure to tell me all about it like immediately. Anyway, I had such a good time exploring with Chiara even if we didn’t get too far from the hotel grounds. We had fun picking out shoes at the store, got weirdly chummy with the wait staff at the only normal restaurant around, and ended our last night with tandem water slide rides. Thanks so much for having us Carmen Steffens!

A simple but still kinda cracked out outfit from the last time I was in New York. Sorry Topshop but I kind of cut your pretty fairy shirt in half. I just flew into the city tonight for a shoot tomorrow in Brooklyn – make sure you’re following me on Instagram for updates! Also answered some questions on this old thing when I wasn’t being a window seat fetus so maybe go there too.
(Rag & Bone tank, Lover shorts, Céline sandals, Saint Laurent Chyc bag)
I’ve worn the black version of these shorts out to the nth degree and have convinced myself that lace shorts are now a wardrobe basic so it felt not too crazy to go for them in coral. More colors please Lover! I broke them in yesterday with a Rag & Bone mullet top and 2011 throwback footwear.
(Stone Cold Fox Coppola top, Mercury Duo shorts, Birkenstocks)
This is how you’ll find me puttering about my house on Sunday mornings engaging in a healthy routine of torturing Kumo, glorifying in messy sheets, and checking on the plant life in my backyard in an uneducated way. This Stone Cold Fox piece is so beautiful and lazy day relevant, I forgot how much I’m all about things that are oversized and backless. And before you say it, he’s the opposite of possessed, which to be precise is having the personality of a stuffed animal that was brought to life. But you know what, I know you’re not convinced, it’s ok.

More from earlier this month in Shibuya – dressing for a day walking all day through wall-like humidity was something that I didn’t really struggle with. Wispy and barely existent fabrics are both easy to pack and all I own. I wore a pair of metal-bedecked gauzy culotte shorts with a beaten up Ragdoll tshirt which I later switched out for something a little more feminine and fluttery to go visit my grandparents. Almost as much fun to shoot in sensory overload heaven Shibuya again as it was to shop for like, banana shaped iPhone cases and tear-look eyeliner. Ok I only bought half of the items mentioned but I never said I make all the right choices.
(Stylestalker Time Travel dress, Céline Audrey sunglasses and sandals)
I’m gonna be honest, I thought I had every cutout out there under my belt and filed into the blog archives. I’ve done the gaping side slash, the shoulder in both bodycon and oversized renditions, the vintage t-shirt held together by two non-vintage bits of thread, and my maybe favorite, the thumb. Cause who can bother with actual gloves. This Stylestalker piece proved me wrong and also anyone under the impression that long sleeved dresses are summer irrelevant.
(Sonia Rykiel coat, Dimepiece LA top, Reformation Storm mesh skirt, Céline wedge sandals and sunglasses, Proenza Schouler bag)
More from San Francisco in my old man coat/life mate. Hayes Valley is one of my favorite areas here, so many ideal loiter-worthy cafes and shops and this perpetual fall vibe I can’t quite explain but is very real. I wore a sports bra reminiscent top grossly mismatched to my location with a mesh skirt from The Reformation, doing my best to mitigate the cheerleader vibes with every single other piece involved.
