Dress: Zara | Strap: Eileen Fisher | Purse: Liebeskind | Sandals: Sanuk

WEDNESDAY. Took a short getaway to Portugal's Alfama neighborhood for my annual fix of cobble streets and seen-it-all alleyways. As much as I love the challenge of artful layering, I savor the moments life allows me to throw on a single piece of garb and slide out the front door. This suedey dress and roped go-to travel sandals gave me just the Dornishy vibe I was hoping to have whilst exploring old town. And my living accommodations consisted of an inconspicuous grey exterior with a skeleton key for the entry portal, so there was that. Pat on the back, Airbnb.

Unearthed this tshirt from the back of my dresser drawers..(That sect of clothing I'd totally outworn in my travels/contemplated chucking). Glad left-brained Jessie thought to keep it- it's the softest, tissue-y, most basic (just barely black-green) no fuss thing.. Wore it with some silk trousers, cuffed, a more obvious green because it just felt like more than a tshirt and jeans type of weekend. Layered up with my trusty lightweight cracked faux leather jacket..floppy lapels, standard. Anddd an old lizard-skinned clutch.. for Godknowswhy..I told myself, no more purses, you don't need more purses. 
$17 and some mothballs later.. 
Last, but not leastest, my new bamboo-framed sunnies from Panda. We're only half way through summer, Gents. I'd recommend getting an actual good pair of sunglasses like these ones. 
Read my review, HERE. *slash/my last post...*

What a hodgepodge going on here. 

P.S. This jacket doubles as a grass covering blanket, so going to grab a bottle of Campari and a copy of the Stranger and watch people catch Pokemon in the park. Ciao for now.

SATURDAY. Patriotism, smoked meats, and your best sunshades.

Panda Sunglasses sent me a pair of their Monroes to don this weekend and all the sunny weekends of summer. I love keeping these lightweight, bamboo frames by my apartment door for accompaniment on those let's grab brunch at now-o'clock or do you remember how to toss a Frisbee? last minute moments. The actual "shade" part of these guys are actually effective, which seems like a given thing to say for sunglasses but (trust me) it's not. With the way the light is caught/transformed from glares into prisms, I feel totally capable of not walking into telephone poles, running over self-righteous pedestrians whilst driving, successfully pretending to not see acquaintances walking your opposite, et cetera... Y'know... things you do with your $5 pairs.

And, speaking as a totally visually-impaired human being, I LOVE that they provide corrective lenses for those who can't necessarily prioritize/self-provide for the sake of seeing clearly.

A safe Fourth for all.

MONDAY. Of this. Less of that. More reaching out(side), hours with good company, happy drinking, looking up, positivism... less anxiety, material baggage, excuses for laziness, excuses period. Also, less clothes. That's where my mind was, all of May. fyi.

Slip: Spanx | Pants: Anne Kleine | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Shades: unbranded vintage, London | Blazer: unbranded vintage, Tokyo

MONDAY. Precisely when you think you're being fashion ninja, your mother reveals that she's some equal kind of sneaky. Like when you assume you can get away with an oversize nude slip as a top, spring dress, whatever exposed article of clothing... but actually no, she spills your secret in front of Dad and Brother over brunch. Mother-daughter disagreements aside, layering undergarb with professional-ish clothing is going to be a spring thing thing. These super touch-friendly suede trousers (hand-picked by my mother *hem hem*) meld so well with the inappropro clothing article for my sun-time aesthetics. So there.
