Happy Androgyny

Sweater: Cristi Conaway, Shirt: Equipment, Skirt: UO, Shoes: Alexander Wang, Bag: Chanel, Jewelry: F21, Vintage Gucci

Ok, so here's the thing. It's June. June means summer. Summer means sun, fun and the whole megillah. But, by the looks of these pics (and my mad dogging face) summer seems to have returned back to that mother's womb. So...yesterday in an effort to woo the sun out of the womb I threw on this androgynous and happy ensem. The yellow sweater, equipment shirt, and a little Alex Wang was all I needed to turn my mood around. That is, until it became blatantly obvious that my outfit was not weather appropriate, my wooing skills obviously needed work and my winter down jacket would have to suffice. Hey, can't win em all...

Here's to a fun sunny weekend all!

Love this! So, so cute. It's been kind of gloomy here in LA. And I'm heading back to Chi just in time for RAIN! :) Lovely.

Glad you read the post about my mole removal. Really -- perfect timing right before running all over the city without sunscreen. The most important blog post I have ever written!
