on a whim skirt



secretly, i think that i do take pride in following trends by not following them ... or following them but in my own "off the beaten path" way. take the birkenstock arizona trend, for example. i have interpreted this trend to mean that i should wear the most unusual (by mainstream standards) birkenstocks that i can find. like the athen* (worn on my feet a few posts ago). or the montana (worn here). (i can't wait until my dundees and/or my priens arrive! in the meantime, i am looking forward to wearing my maines!)

*i nearly fell off my chair when i saw these on the runway recently -- the sacai men's collection for s/s 2015. what gives? hands off my birks!

i am wearing a pullover, dress and skirt by rundholz black label. my shoes are the montana shoe by birkenstock.

a rare glimpse dress


so you buy a piece of clothing because you absolutely love it when you try it on in the store. then you bring it home and, while you still love it, try as you might, you just can't figure out how to wear it. i am really not talking about you here, because i am sure this never happens to you. i am really talking about me, because this happens to me all the time. this type of occurrence used to bother me ... a lot.  how could i not know how to wear something that i love? is is because it wasn't true love? recently, i have learned to go with the flow, based on a few experiences where i just waited and was rewarded with the perfect way of wearing the clothing. i trust that i know what i love and that everything will eventually work out ... that good things do come to those who wait.

i am wearing the catalina dress, the best vest and the circle scarf by kaliyana. my boots are the cylinder boot (box collection) by trippen.

my take on it tops and bottoms



this is probably as close as i get to wearing a tshirt and sweats. although made of linen, the top has a tshirt shape ... sort of. and the skirt is made of french terry cloth. so ... tshirt and sweats ... no? (the jacket is ... well ... just a jacket ... from the same label as the top and skirt* ... in other words, nothing remotely tshirt-y or sweats-y about it ... that i can think of. too bad. now if the jacket, like the skirt, were made of french terry cloth ... .)

*in keeping with my current obsession for dressing head to toe in the same label.

pinstripes set on their side skirt


air-conditioning. when i can control it, i love it. when i can't control it, i usually hate it. because those who can control it usually crank it up so high that i can see my breath.  imagine how miserable i would be in the summer in an environment with air-conditioning that i had no control over if i didn't love layers!

i am wearing a top, pullover and skirt by rundholz black label. my jacket is by rundholz rundholz*dip. i am wearing the keith shoe (idol family) by john fluevog.
