This week has been a scorcher in LA. Triple digits hot, which means sleeveless tops and dresses 24/7. I suppose it’s my chance to get summer clothing out of my system, but it’s just making me more anxious for REAL autumn weather (and clothes).
It has been far too long but now I’m back, with a new camera, new hair, and far too many fun things to wear!
Not sure what you’d call this look, but I’m all about these non-country pigtails and cuffed overalls. My hair, done by my neighbor’s eleven-year-old granddaughter, are semi-edgy dutch braids (the reverse of french braids where the hair is crossed under rather than over) and these overalls are rather boho-funky.
If it’s over 80, chances are, I’m in a tank top of some sorts. Today’s ensemble is rather a layered bodysuit a la Flashdance, Fast Forward, or any other 80s movie you can think of.
Oh how much I have been looking forward to these 4 days off! I get to go to Nashville and visit my new niece… and come back just in time for fireworks. Can’t wait!
Through the month of June the infamous pink wall at the Paul Smith Melrose store has been transformed into a rainbow to mark Los Angeles Pride and LGBTQ Pride Month. Touristy and crowded with pretentious hipsters? Absolutely. But I couldn’t the fact that I really loved the overwhelmingly-colorful backdrop.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my new pair of 90s aviators had a tragic fate after just 24 hours. (Thankfully I only browse designer sunnies and I don’t actually buy them!). But I stumbled over 9 pairs recently (all either super-affordable or on sale) that I love them for this summer (including these crazy blue flip up shells!).
It has been far too long! All of my time and energy has been focused on work and the little one… and in the few remaining minutes of my day I try to eat, clean, and do all of the other things that I’m supposed to do. I’ll be honest, I even resort to showering while I give Addison baths just to save time. Plus better for the environment, right?
When I initially heard that Victoria Beckham was Target’s next collab, I was beyond excited. But then when the lookbook dropped a couple months later, I was left stumped. Largely disappointed, and quite confused by the mixed bag of looks. I did shop it that morning (I got a little caught up in the excitement and had to do a ton of returns after trying things on), but I didn’t buy nearly as much as I did for the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection.
Now, two weeks later, the frenzy has died down. So… what’s the verdict?
