so it's summer

Although I think I've expressed my distaste for summer dressing let me repeat myself. I actually hate dressing for summer. I feel most comfortable in skinny jeans, sweaters and ankle boots. Black on black on black is kind of my style mantra. Although I'll usually take a little sweat action if it means I can wear my favorite pieces, this becomes a bit of an issue when it feels like mid 90's in the sun and jeans just aren't an option. I know these little denim skirts are v trendy right now but I couldn't help myself. Its super cute and was only fifty bucks. I figured, if I can't wear skinny jeans, at least I can sneak denim into my summer wardrobe in the form of a mini skirt that just happens to be the perfect rise to pair with cropped tops.

#rimaroma

As you've seen from my instagram posts, I'm in Italy this week! Thankfully the mild weather this trip has allowed me to pretty much stick to my usual year-round basics; denim & silk. Although I said I'd never do it, I bought a pair of all black leather Birkenstocks while stopping in Toronto for a few nights late last week. I've got to say, they're kind of the comfiest shoes ever and I've worn them almost everyday here. This afternoon we wandered around and almost got caught in the late afternoon down pour. I'll be sad when we leave Saturday but know that I'll visit again. Arrivederci!

denim summer

I need to start wearing more dresses. They're an easy, no-fuss, one and done. This little denim number by Sam & Lavi, via my new friends at zebraclub.com, is the perfect summer staple. Denim & a looser, bf fit makes it a great day to night option that looks just as cool with sneakers as it does with heeled ankle booties. Maybe I'll actually enjoy dressing for summer this year....maybe

Forever Faded in hemp denim

When my friend Rachel told me that the hemp denim company she's been working with released a limited run denim jacket I jumped at the chance to check it out. Hemp/organic cotton blend, this jacket is the perfect wash and mid-weight denim. Perfect for summer evenings in LA thrown over a little tank and skinnies. You already know I'm already a huge denim chick but make it sustainable too?? Sold.
