Acne Studios Lash dress, Rachel Comey Faye sandals

Is it obvious that I only brought one pair of sandals to LA with me yet?

My go-to during those hot, hot days. This shirtdress is loose enough that it doesn't stick to me when I sweat plus it's made out of a crisp cotton poplin that's cool to the touch. Perfect for summer. Fabrication makes all the difference.

Fun shooting new spring things around TOC earlier this month. Since moving to LA I've found that I don't miss Portland all that much (considering) but if there's one space that I do miss terribly from time to time, it's Table of Contents. So lucky to get to go home even just for the weekend.

You should check out Shu and Joe's Freund von Freunden feature that my friend Joanna shot a few months ago too. It might not inspire the same happily homesick feeling for you, but it's worth a look just to marvel at their incredible library.

Very much in love with the work of Alexandra Verschueren. Beautifully refreshing.

All about navy these days. You'll see.


The skirt.


A few weekends ago.
It's so nice to have friends visiting to wake you from your work routine (and take your photo so you can finally update your blog).

You can't really tell it's anything special from this photo, but this sweater has received a surprising number of compliments since I got it. I cut the side seams up to the armpit, creating a really nice A-line shape and exposing a bit of skin. A quick snip of the scissors and a regular old Hanes sweatshirt is now a frequent talking point for me.

Something so simple has helped remind me of what I love so much about clothes: the changeable natural of materials. While I belive in paying a certain amount of respect to the intended design of clothing, my personal philosophy is that clothes exist to be played with, altered and I encourage the liberal use of scissors. Some of you might remember long ago when I took a Sharpie to an expensive pair of heels and while I'd probably bring them to a cobbler now, I like thinking back to the spirit of a younger me, so brazen as to imprint her mark on something.
