White on white with Proenza Schouler on top

A hazy day rediscovering old high school cast-offs

I’M WEARING VINTAGE CULOTTE SHORTS, A WHITE AA TANK, PROENZA SCHOULER BOXY BLAZER, AND ALEXANDER WANG ROPE HEELED SANDALS

THE HAZY DAYS OF SUMMER GIVE PHOTOS SUCH A PERFECT ATMOSPHERE

YOU CAN’T QUITE TELL IN THE PHOTOS BUT I’M WEARING MY NEW FAVORITE MATTE BLACK SUNGLASSES BY HOUSE OF HARLOW

I’ve been tucking my hair inside jackets lately – it’s like having a bob without the commitment

I AM A BIG FAN OF UNI-COLORED OUTFITS – SO I TOOK OFF MY JACKET AS THE DAY GOT HOT TO END UP WITH THIS CRISP ALL-WHITE ENSEMBLE

THESE ALEXANDER WANG CREAM ROPE HEELS ARE IN HEAVY ROTATION IN MY CLOSET

My stylish mom has always been a risk-taker in fashion and urged my teenage self to do the same (much to my resistance). I thought I knew what worked for my body and I wanted to stick to it (usually a short flirty skirt) – but frankly I was probably just afraid to look silly and lose my cool-girl image. Culotte shorts were one such example – I couldn’t fathom why my mom would want to wear this odd-fitting garment… look at me now hahaha! As I got older and my taste in fashion was refined, I learned that this beautiful creative outlet called fashion is just that – an outlet – to try new things and experiment with silhouettes, shapes, and colors… without fear. Now if I could only find mom’s 70s jumpsuits!
