The Next Seashore

Forever 21 shirt, Ksubi shorts, Mont Blanc belt, Balenciaga sandals

Staring out at the water and running to save my sandals from the waves was fun. I should come to the beach more often, more like every day, considering I live five minutes away. The more of the world I see, the smaller it feels and it's a comforting thought to know where everything is. Maybe because staying in one place too long makes you feel like the globe's dimensions are boundless or so little that it's like everywhere outside of where you live doesn't even exist. Kind of like zoning in on the sea, wondering how far or close the next seashore is.

Quiet as the Forest

Theory top, Ksubi shorts, ChloƩ boots, Eugenia Kim hat, Mont Blanc belt, YSL ring

Hiking around apparently asking for a clump of sap to step in with assurance that it is viscous enough to cement ChloƩ boots to the ground. Not so fast, I wouldn't even consider leaving barefooted without them although doing so at this site sounds fun. It was pretty close to happening while I was balancing on that tree stump that had an irregular, partly sap-coated face. As for the hat, I somehow feel like a masked magical pirate nymph princess when I wear it like this. That's a fairly confusing reflection on something so basic but the rawness of the doubled rope detailing and the option to instantly slant the brim accordingly leaves much to the imagination. Especially mine.

Sun Kisses

Sandro leather dress, Isabel Marant zebra heels, Yves Saint Laurent ring

This Sandro shift might be familiar from my month-long adventure through Europe by sea. It instantly jumped out at me because of its simple cut and color that I think is nonexistent on the spectrum, somewhere between a toned down gold and nude that wavers in very specific light. It is unreal how thinly cut the leather is on this dress, a perfect canvas to justify accessorizing with like zebra inspired things and this bracelet I bought at a ceramic store in Kusadasi.
