6 OUTFITS FROM THE 'GRAM

Friends! Times are crazy both professionally and in the world. It's difficult to find the time to take outfit photos and honestly fashion seems like the LEAST important thing on the planet. Like some of you mentioned on the 'gram, a little distraction is NOT a bad thing. With that in mind, a quick and dirty look at some #LEWKS from the 'gram.

LEWK #1 - vintage Gucci sweatshirt and the One Teaspoon shorts that have served me so well this Summer. A Summer which has extended all the way into November -_-

SHOP LOGO SWEATSHIRTS!

LEWK #2 - What? The weather dropped below 75 degrees, so I broke out the Jonathan Simkhai super textured sweater. Worn here with Rag and Bone sweat pants. 

Vintage chunky rings on heavy rotation. 

LEWK #3 - This is an off-beat moment. What you see here is an Alexander Wang body suit, worn with a silk Suno button up and silk drop crotch pants by Phillip Lim. 

Isabel Marant wedge sneaks. PS - these are a basic/staple not a trend. No comments! 

SHOP BODY SUITS!

LEWK #4 - Hot again you say? An OOOOLLLLD Vena Cava jumper worn with a men's white tee. 

LEWK #5 - This is punching up basics with pattern on opposite ends of the body. An APC men's camo shirt and Celine cheetah print espadrilles. 

Necklaces both by Isabel Marant, although I altered them both from their original form. 

SHOP CAMO BUTTON UPS!

LEWK #6 - Business on top, party on the bottom. This is a Bridge & Burn Indigo top with the One Teaspoon jump offs again. 

OUTFIT//ONE TRICK PONY

Well, as these things go - once I find something I like, I run it into the ground. Is anyone else like this? It's a quasi-addictive personality thing for sure. In this case, I'm running these One Teaspoon shorts and Gucci crossover heels into the ground like roots.

SHOP THE SHORTS

Same shorts, same channel. This time worn with a men's (DUH) APC sweatshirt from many seasons ago. Yes it's LA, we can wear sweatshirts with short-shorts and SOMEHOW this makes sense.

SHOP SPORTY SWEATSHIRTS!

A jacket, not for "styling purposes, but for those very real moments of walking into a building that is CRANKING the ac. 

SHOP KIMONO STYLE JACKETS! 

Knotted in the back - is the built in belt.

Last looks - with the jacket.

Annnddd without. So long! 

PHILOSOPHY ON PERSONAL STYLE

Obvious fact: People perceive things about you, (whether you like it or not) based on how you present yourself. This is NOT about whether people should judge you on your taste. We all know judging ain't nice.

I'm talking about the basics - what you put on your back "says" something about you. For better or worse. 

My philosophy: when it comes to personal style, the most important thing is to have a perspective and then ask yourself if the clothes you're wearing communicate it or not.

IF you're a person who enjoys travel and learning about new cultures, how will I know that about you? You get the point.  

It's not about getting crazy or being too literal - it's just about perspective and taking the opportunity when you get dressed, to honor it. 

Today, I was "adventurous, bold, comfortable in her own skin girl"

3 prints aren't enough? Add some leopard! Side note: slip-ons worn as slides, cause I'm lazy like that.
