TASSELS


Zara sale find to give my Dieppa Restrepo's a much needed break.

I've been enjoying only owning a few pairs of shoes; a sneaker, loafer, sandal and boot are all I really need. But without several pairs to rotate between and with all the walking I do, the lifespan of my shoes seems to fly by. My sneakers have holes in the toes and the stitching on my sandals is unraveling in several places so I've been picking up backup pairs.

TORTOISE


Finds from Tortoise General store a few weeks ago. Some day I'll buy an entire Hasami dinnerware set from there... *___*

One of my only complaints about living in LA is how difficult my skin is here. Dry desert weather plus the disgusting air quality downtown has transformed my previously minimal effort beauty routine into a high maintenance ordeal that only barely staves off clogged pores and breakouts. This clay and charcoal face soap combined with an exfoliating towel is helping a lot right now but I think I need to look into new moisturizers as well. Any recs for super sensitive dry skin?

COME SUMMER

Acne Studios Lash dress, Rachel Comey Faye sandals

Is it obvious that I only brought one pair of sandals to LA with me yet?

My go-to during those hot, hot days. This shirtdress is loose enough that it doesn't stick to me when I sweat plus it's made out of a crisp cotton poplin that's cool to the touch. Perfect for summer. Fabrication makes all the difference.
