Ballet flats: Zara | Shades: Bartell's drugstore
TUESDAY. Harnessing all the energy I possibly can for my upcoming roadtrip south to desert weather. Vitamin-packed juices and flats. No questions.

WEDNESDAY. The throw-around satchel. Blackened clasps and zippers, soft pleather -- which, wasn't sure how much of a possibility that was. Tough canvas interior and small enough to not play hide-and-seek with my purse things.

 If there's an 
opportunity to become a chameleon, I'll take it. This just might indicate a misinterpretation of the allure of monochromatic wardrobing... Still, this structured timberwolf dress from French Connection revived from 90s lookbooks everywhere seemed to want a barely patterned garage door in the exact same shade as a backdrop. I can't say I blame it.

te amo,

Slip: Victoria's Secret

TUESDAY. A little bit of murdering went on, as far as pretty pinks go. I bought both the slip and robe with this Chantilly lace and sheer pink fabric during Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale and kept the robe in its natural make. But I've been needing that black lace peekage under oversized sweaters or with blouses with sloppy cuts here and there.. I ideally still want a dress formula.. non sheer fabric, longer hem... but this DIY has been plenty loyal to me so far.

Cami: Goodwill, unbranded |  Shorts: Ingni | Cardigan: Hinge

TUESDAY. In the hunt for lighter neutral dresses/slips/easy to put on things, I am messing with the tans and creams already in my closet. Think silk camis and breathable dresses. I picked up these shorts in Tokyo last summer and am still coordinating outfits unsuccessfully. I think the issue is how they accentuate hips in unflattering folds. Still, spent the day jean hunting... and killing, via All Saints... and having Turkish coffee and sweets with my girl friends between breaks. How can you say no to black coffee with cardamom and summer sales?
