The Impressionist

THE IMPRESSIONIST
Sitting back and watching the shows filter in at the speed of web becomes more and more interesting each season, breath, technological nanosecond. It’s incredible to see how instagram can take a show and with a quick snap, viola- the eye of the beholder captures that moment that we want to see. I still sift through the single shots of shows searching for common denominators that evolve into trends and love the process but find myself going back to the instagram moments. I love how these snapshots are more candid, less produced and present a bit of lifestyle.
Below, a few of my favorite snaps from the weekend vs. the rich and regal trend that paints an Impressionist-like picture on the body. These monochromatic blends of texture, dimension and fabrication are cozy and sumptuous, structured and swaying. The sweetest balance.

 It’s 80+ degrees out, yet my brain is already deep in Fall. Staying ahead of daylight savings and the seasons for work can place one into the oddest time warp of a headspace. I’m constantly stuck in the season ahead of which we are in.

Which leads me to the following inspo board: ‘Feeling Present.’ An oxymoron of inspiration: Present vs. past. Fall vs. Summer. My head is stuck wrapped around France’s Summer songs of the 60s & 70s, Resort collections of 2015 and who knows what else. Ultimately leaving me at a crossroads. Choosing to live in jeans and without a bra but doing my best to throw in a flirt of a skirt or two.

19??: Party in your pants. Levis

What year are we in?  Who the hell knows.  We just play along how we please.  This Summer Levi’s let us play as we pleased at the re-launch party of their orange tab jeans.  We frolicked around the grassy knolls of Topanga Canyon in our vintage favorites, floral headbands and unlimited pabst beer.  Goodtimes were had as we rocked out with artists such as Dave Grohl covering the classics.  Party in your Pants or party in your seat…brace yourself for some fun favorites pictured here.

CLEAN:   Incredibly excited with the on the edge of your seat (or pants) expression of anything goes this year.  And I don’t feel like we’re going to calm down anytime soon.  I do tend to personally reach for an eccentric take on my personal style and constantly have to remind myself to simplify.  Which is probably why I’m starting here with a white and clean story.  Trending here:  oxfords, laces, layers of mesh and technically placed appliques.  This eccentric season of spring ’14 carries through even into our whites and I’m loving it!
