dreaming of this lately // caftan living
summer dressing is always an exercise in restraint and editing. i think i'm getting better at it though, year after year. making less trend-based mistakes and staying more true to what i'm genuinely comfortable wearing. this season's wardrobe planning focuses on carefree, easy silhouettes that add color and print personality to my more monochrome f/w foundations.
tall gladiator sandals (also here) // the coolest sandals of summer. and way more versatile than they look.
linen tees // i'd been living in my two linen tees for several summers now, time to stock up!
an abstract silk dress // love the modern art print and seamed details.
a print jumpsuit // all about this one-piece this season. the gateway jumpsuit from last month has paved the way for a summery printed one.
mid-height summery wedges // still wishlisting these...it's slightly comical at this point how many wedges i've looked at and rejected for one reason or another.
toms // one of the most comfortable and practical shoes i own – i think it's time for a fresh pair in white or red.
black jersey maxi dress // easy and chic and completely essential to wear/pack/slip on for the weekend.
Band of Outsiders navy blazer // the sad news of the company folding made me realize this was my last chance to snag one of their iconic schoolboy blazers.
the minimal sandal heels // the best budget alternative to the chic Givenchy versions.
elegant cotton t-shirts // all about the drop-shoulder.
recent favorites on repeat:
'girlfriend' jeans // white v-tee // gauzy silk-cashmere shawl // classic leather birks (on sale here!) // vintage-fit denim jacket
- Nick Knight's latest interview with Kate Moss on those iconic Calvin Klein ads, and supermodeling in 90s NYC. love her down to earthness!
- mood colors: tropical prints, ocean blues
