More of this little suede suit from the back alleys of the Kasbah of the Udayas in Rabat.

I think it’s helpful to oneself to always be looking for new versions of things that one overwears. I abuse the crap out of my braided Chloés so thought I would take some of the pressure off them by introducing a new option. Love the giant buckle and mule-ishness going on here. What do you think?

I’ve been in Japan for the past week dividing my time quite carefully between the responsible and the irresponsible. So many outfits to share with you as a result of both! This was shot pretty early in the morning in Shibuya thus the lack of people swarms. To stay cool in what was already suffocating wall of steam from every direction heat, I put this handy algae colored net over silk separates that are basically pajamas. Accessorized with espadrilles I picked up on sale at Jeffrey’s in New York and a big old bucket bag by Barbara Bui.
Matching way more than usual continues, shows promise of becoming a series. Proximity to the beach makes it more acceptable to wear two layers of sheer items as a full look, right? This Anine Bing combination is on the verge of being too sweet but the white ringer details give it that 1% athletic vibe to balance it all out. Paired with boots from a few seasons ago by The Kooples I found on eBay and my faithful giant duffle.

Though I dread being asked to sum up my style in a neat coupling of synonyms, it happens often enough to where I’ve decided that “minimal yet bohemian” is a nice way to answer before mumbling something about how I get dressed based on my mood. But this look is exactly that. I love Aurélie Bidermann’s Copacabana collection – the thick colorful braids on gold just scream summer.

I’ve fallen behind on posting and having trouble believing that these were taken almost two weeks ago now! Shot on a bright perfect day in Silverlake aka my 2011 stomping grounds. Love the pointed hem and secondary spine detail on this whisper thin knit.

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.
Photo diary of an hour spent roaming Venice Beach on a Sunday. Was it surreal because I was delirious or was I delirious because it was surreal?

More from beautiful Stinson Beach. It’s been a while since I’ve added to my stack of wispy white dresses..I love this piece by Australian brand Willow that I picked up in San Francisco last week.
