St. Regis Holiday

Last weekend I took a "break" and stayed at the St. Regis at Monarch Beach. Cavorting down deserted hallways lined with colossal mirrors and the kind of ballrooms that are ideal for echo circulation led me to this room flooded with sunlight that can potentially stimulate your eyelids, if nothing else can. I feel like the grand stairway plus piano situation and cloud paintings as ceilings calls for only the most ladylike attire involving luxurious fur over a sheer silk shirt, a non-microscopic pencil skirt, and low heels. The piano was tightly locked away. Otherwise, I would have done more than sit so primly.

To the Moon and Back

Photos by Conor & Griffin

Based on my limited experience of being in not quite deserts but in landscapes that seem to be microcosms of them, I decided that dressing in absolute white with slight variations in tone is the only acceptable option there. Anything that freely floats with the subtlest of winds is a match for combating oppressive heat levels while contributing some ethereal effect. I can get used to overlapping highly concentrated whisper sheer lace with the right amount of ruching on a jacket where they are least expected. Something not to get used to, however, is wearing perforated footwear on surfaces that are like the shallow sandboxes they're not.

Parade of Yellow Petals

Giorgio Armani top, Forever 21 skirt, Chanel: purse, sandals, and watch, Givenchy earrings

Joining in that athletically inspired fashion movement (which is really not so sporty anyway) with Chanel tricolored sandals. Love the sensibly low height and unexpectedly exposed heel, both features that complement the minimal design. This is all a testament to how air thin black silk and the tiniest doses of simple white lines can make for one of those multipurpose default summer uniforms.

I Dreamt We Were on a Sea Journey

We the Free shirt, skirt I designed myself, Louis Vuitton bag, Alexander Wang heels, Herm├Ęs bracelet, Yves Saint Laurent vintage earrings

Here is to breaking my unforeseen month-long absence from blogging and assimilating summer after graduating. After tracing the perimeter of a multitude of stationed sailboats, I now wish they would all just launch and sail out to nowhere all at once instead of being so static and boring in one spot. There is nothing more appropriate for boat-gazing at the harbor than wearing an impossibly wispy white shirt with wooden buttons and a floaty skirt as blue as the vast seawater. At least as blue as you, environmentalists, and I would like it to be.
