Well it's basically summer again in LA, which is kind of bullshit. I love this city, but we could do with a little more seasonal variety. Even this romper was a little too much clothing yesterday, but I'm not ready to commit to sleeveless things just yet. Holding out in hopes of a hint more winter!
Is that a crop top in January? Oh, LA... One day you're broody and raining, the next you're practically looking like Spring. Not that I'm complaining. Thank goodness for easy outfits that transform from warm weather appropriate to cozy with the throw on of a light jacket. Shaffer is a new handbag line started by a good friend of mine, and this metallic clutch is the perfect transition piece - appropriate for any season.
Nothing like a fuzzy sweater and knee high boots to get you in the rainy day spirit. It's probably not the best idea ever to puddle hop around the city in suede boots but I use the term "rain" loosely, as the rain here in LA is mostly a consistent drizzle with rare downfalls that somehow always seem to happen only when I'm driving or in bed. This ouija board clutch (my new favorite item) seemed fitting for the gloomy weather. Seriously though how f-ing cute is this thing.

Ever since I snapped up this little number back in November, I've been trying to figure out how the hell to style this thing for every day use. Aside from the obvious night-out appropriateness, it was tough to decide how to style a seriously sheer mini with mesh cutouts that verge on dangerously short. Thank goodness for this bomber (that I've been practically sleeping in since it arrived) - it made it much easier to be seen in this gorgeous Wang dress during daylight hours.

So um, hi. Anyone out there? I'm fully aware that it's been a ridiculous amount of time since I last showed my face around these parts. After a period of transition in my personal and professional life, I'm finally finding the time and motivation to get back into this blogging thing. My new projects involve a lot of working from home, so usually my daily uniform consists of zero makeup, jeans or sweats and a messy topknot - but on the days that I actually drag myself into the world I try to look like a decent human being. This Zara top is perfection and you'll be seeing a lot of it in the future. And I know this CV clutch is everywhere, but it seriously never gets old for me. It's one of those pieces I'll probably pass down to my granddaughter one day. Having fun with asymmetry once again. Hope you all had a great holiday season. Ready for 2015!
