cream of the crop top

rationing the amount of times i wear this sweater because i always snag it in the gnarliest way no matter what. already have 3 huge holes going. only allowed 1 wear per 2 months. or i could just not wear jewelry with it. but that just isn't an option, cause then i'd be naked.
 been in a monochromatic mood. (no surprise there i'm sure). monochrome down to my pasty cream skin that is so desperate for a tan but is s.o.l. cause california's straight up refusing to have a summer. chilly/slightly warm/back to a chill is just not the jam. leaves for some uninspired dressing.....i've worn both this little fatty bubble tank and lace diapers before, though in very different hair moments! i miss my red hair. it went away too quickly. i know this isn't a world issue or anything, but i think about it every once in awhile and pour out a little liquor for my red that once was. why were you an upkeep nightmare? and why did you turn dull carrot orange in one wash? we could've had some nice times together red. you blew it. on the work tip, we've been shooting a ton of cool lookbooks for planet blue lately. (here's a recent favorite). since it's my job and we do the lookbooks every week, by the time it's done we are brainstorming and onto the next one. gotta start posting them more often. i mean at least then you guys will see what i do all day and why it takes me a hundred years to post!
shorts: h&m, top: recollection, sweater: rebecca taylor, bag: chloe

  1. There's sooooo much to ogle in this post! Love the entire monochromatic ensemble...your bubble top looks fab with the fitted lace shorts and those sandals are lethal!...Also digging the way your ombre locks instantly become a feature in this post...Ahhhhh outfit envy for sure! You look stunning babe!

  4. LOVES it! Head to toe brilliance :) Those shoes are BEYOND!!! I need to take a page out of your book and "cool" myself up a bit...I have such a hard time getting away from Liberace and J.Lo as my style inspirations. You know, the whole more is more sequin thing. Ugh.

  7. I love the monochrome look and your lace diapers. Any mother would be proud. As for the hair, I know what you mean. Red is a bitch to keep and blonde gets brassy so much. Have you tried the shimmering lights line? It's worked well for me.

  8. Job envy pouring across the internet and hope you feel it!!!! Anyhoo don't be blue (that rhymes btw). Loving what's going on with the hair nowadays and there's always the dieback to give Red another go. Loving the rings, the arrow necklace, the lace diapers, the monochrome!

  22. rocking it again and in such pretty colors. how do you manage to make soft creams look totally edgy? love that. i think it's the jewelry of course. you know how to accessorize yourself, haha. I put on a little ring and then I'm like..."errr maybe I should take it off. It's too much."

    ReplyDelete
  23. How are you so freakin cool! Looooooove!

    Omg! We have the same arty ring!! Yay! Husband surprised me it for my birthday!

  27. It's a damn good thing you don't post everyday.

    It's not enough that your writing is entertaining as F, but then you have to have amazing style and photography as well.
    Hmph. This is just the type of thing that forces me to procrastinate the evening away so I can't work on my own blog.

    Keep up the good work :)

  30. I love the washed out look of your photos! And you definitely rock the monochrome... love your boots! I have some similar but in black, I like yours because they look less S&M dominatrix and more summer hippie :)

  49. Those shorts are a great H&M find, I wanted them when they were out but I think they only had a size 12 or something, boo. I know how you feel about the snagging thing, and not wearing jewelry isn't an option for me either. I love how you have a ring for every finger. I have serious ring envy every time I visit your blog.

  50. oooh, aaahhh, I LOVE that bag...so freaking gorgeous..I am jealous.
    You look so soft and feminine here...loving the shots...
    I love how much you change your hair...wish I had an ounce of balls...mine has been long and brown for EVER....so desperately in need of a cut...my hubs told me I looked like Splash the other day..and I corrected him and said I look like Darryl Hannah...what the hell ever happened to her?
    ok..I am being random..

  51. Gahh I adoreee this cream colored outfit! Those shorts, that crop top..and those sandalsssss (that I'm assuming are a nightmare hellish pain in the ass to put on/take off haha) I lovvved your red hair too! You are so lucky, you can honestly pull off everyy hair color! I've experimented in the past, and let's just say those were some dark days hahahaha. And I've been absolutely obssseeessed with all of the Planet Blue lookbooks! Makes me want everything!

  54. these photos are perfection, I understand the whole skin-unfit for ca thing because I sat in the sun for too long and now I have at least ten new freckles and I should probably look up skin cancer?
    your boots remind me of paper snowflakes.
