Double pink



It's entirely possible I'll look back on these months in a few months and gag at all the pink pieces I've acquired, but for now, I'm enjoying the proliferation of any and all items being made in this so-called "millennial pink." I've also been on the biggest vintage jean buying kick ever. Whether I'm finding the jeans at vintage stores, ebay, or etsy, I continue to be hungry for more. I've found that boys' or men's jeans work best on me when I'm going for that high-waisted relaxed fit. Hopefully I can share some vintage jean hunting tips when I've been at this for a few more months.

Bristled



I've long wanted to visit Joshua Tree National Park; visions of purple-y dusk skies and bristly Joshua trees dotting the horizon fed my photographic sensibilities well. Of course I wasn't exactly prepared given my limited time on this trip. I didn't even pack sneakers. So my ability to properly explore was limited (every five steps, I'd have to empty my sandal of rocks and sand), but it was a worthwhile visit nonetheless. I realized how much I love the desert landscape on this trip, much more so than beaches or mountains. I love the dry heat and how quickly it cools down when the sun goes down, and I love the natural textures that are so lacking in my city life.

Wind



I spent a glorious two days in Palm Springs photographing a new Lo & Sons campaign (more to share when it goes live!). The windmills there have become one of my absolute favorite locations to shoot. At dusk and dawn, they are mesmerizingly eerie, all moving at different rhythms and speeds. I found the repetition of them across the horizon really beautiful and otherworldly.

Ultra pink



Apparently pink is all the rage right now. I've been guilty of eying a few pink pieces myself that I would have never considered back in the day (particularly this sweatshirt that I'm kicking myself for not picking up before it disappeared in almost all sizes, ugh.) But, these ultra pink strappy mules from Loeffler Randall also satisfy my pink and chunky heel desires (use code EVENT17 for 20% off). Ooh, and how pretty is this peachy pink shade sandal?



Now that I've completely gone down the pink sandal rabbit hole, you can find more of my picks below. I could do this all day...

Coral



I'm adding a little spring in my step with these bright coral pumps from Everlane, just released today. Stylish and functional? I'm all about that. I got to test them out a few days in advance of their release, and I can truthfully say they are quite comfortable and I've already walked around the city in them. I did go up 1/2 size from my usual, but I'm sort of in between sizes.

Oh, and sales from this la femme shirt will benefit UN Women. (I'm wearing a Large for anyone interested, as I think I'm allergic to fitted tees.)

No dress zone



A sleek bodysuit and wide-legged pants (er, trousers if you're being proper/English) – my kind of alternative to cocktail dress garb. I'm not the biggest dress wearer and much prefer separates when I can, so I threw together this look for a cocktail event last night. This particular bodysuit isn't quite evening-wear material (it's like a mid-weight jersey) but I think its sleekness and neckline make up for that. I love the volume on these pants and how incredibly high-waisted they are. Gotta fake those long legs!






Get the look for less with this bodysuit from Asos and high-waisted pair from Missguided. These Chloe pumps are multiple seasons old, but I found an exact pair here for an amazing price (if you're a size 7.5!).

Floral



The recent weather has been totally messing with us here in New York. One day it's 65 and sunny, the next it's below freezing and there's a chance of blizzard conditions. What?? So until real spring comes along, I'll have to create a fantasy spring, and there's no better way to do so than immersing myself in the lushest pink and white blooms and Michael Kors' Sexy Blossom fragrance. And if you, too, want a break from this seesawing weather, come into my fantasy world for just a little bit, and imagine you're walking through a garden in springtime.

Black and metal



I'm ducking in for a quick post to share some of my new favorite black and metal accented accessories. When I first saw these shoes, I added them to my wishlist, then revisited them barely a few days later and every size was nearly sold out - including mine. Those who know me IRL know I'm very persistent and good at tracking down hard to find items (probably to a fault), so I did find them from a small boutique in SF and pounced. It was love at first sight when I put them on. They required zero breaking in and I've already walked far distances in them. If you're on the hunt yourself, you're in luck, because there are still a ton of sizes available on mytheresa. Run, don't walk!



I'm also smitten with this little guy from the kind ladies at Kozha Numbers. (Use code NEEDMORE for 15% off.) I'm always a sucker for box calf or smooth leather, especially paired with a strong metal accent, so this mini tote checks off all the boxes. There's also a larger version of this bag, and some other really nice functional/minimal pieces in the rest of their line, which are all made in Portland, OR.

En Rose



This video was shot a bit spontaneously while Jessi was over one day. I made one edit to get the general vibe going but Jessi's awesome roommate, Matt, did this proper edit.

Striped


Hello, new favorite silk shirt under $100. It's a lovely thicker silk with some heft, to hold up to the wear I'll be putting into it. (p.s. size up for a more relaxed fit like I did.)


I'm also fully embracing my inner nerd with these glasses, which I had ordered months and months ago, but I made the mistake of getting my prescription filled online and via a UK site (as the prices were slightly cheaper). That was a terrible mistake. Long story short, I had to get them re-fitted with new lenses to match where the center of my pupils actually fell on the lens. I put it off for the longest time because I knew I would eat the cost I originally paid for the lenses (over $350) and have to pay for new lenses (my local place cut me a 'deal' and they were still $400 – I have a pretty awful prescription so I have to get the thinnest ones available). Two lessons I learned from this: never get prescription lenses online; and prescription lenses are not a place in life to try and save money on!

Sky-diving


Not really. But that's what a friend jokingly dubbed this outfit as, so I'll run with it. This was definitely one of those outfits I hesitated to actually wear out, and I definitely texted at least three friends asking if it looked completely ridiculous. But it was 62 degrees again and so I thought why the hell not.
