SHORT hemlines usually call for some overcompensating elsewhere so I covered up in my new cropped moto leather jacket. It’s the perfect outer layer for Los Angeles mornings and nights that start and end a bit chillier than mid-day weather. Among the things I miss most about living in the northeast, especially in the summer? Those consistently humid nights!

Wishing you a great rest of the week!

OH you know, just running around town pantsless. Kidding. I’m far too modest to do that… in public. If you’re looking for a great body-hugging nude slip to wear under sheer clothing, I highly recommend the DKNY ‘Fusion’ slip, which I wore underneath this shirt.

On rotation: cutout shoulder button-downs, shirt dresses and my RF for Kith X Quintin Selvedge Denim hat!

VENTURED into foreign territory when I picked up these distressed skinny jeans since white denim hasn’t graced this behind in years. Without fail, I’ve managed to unintentionally kick my foot through the knee holes every single time I wiggle into these tight-ass jeans. Luckily, distressed denim is forgiving in that sense.

Hope your weekend was as relaxing as mine, and that you were able to take a moment to observe Memorial Day. Yesterday started off with getting woken up by a call from my college friend Steve who is currently stationed in Germany — before that he was in Afghanistan. After 2+ years of being stationed abroad, he will be transferring to a base in Florida pretty soon. Great news around a holiday that saddens many seems almost bittersweet, but big shout to Steve — who always asks me about my blog — WELCOME HOME, BUDDY!

ONCE I start mixing prints, I have a hard time putting limitations on just how far to go. I’ve mixed stars and stripes together before, but decided to throw in some polka dots because WHY NOT?! If I had any style rules that were destined to be broken, they’d include: sometimes more is more; screw “in moderation” and boundaries are meant to be pushed!
