From your dad back home in Ohio to the latest it-girl in France.
… everyone wears Levi’s.
Except for me, apparently.
It makes sense — I’m not your dad and, as hard as I may try, I’m not a French it-girl.
This might be gross, but…
You know how in college when you’d pre-game and then you’d really really really needed to go pee, but people would joke and be like, “don’t break the seal?”
I graduated like seven years ago though, so bear with me — this isn’t about binge drinking on a budget…
This is about how I accidentally broke the seal on expensive bathing suits when I bought my Eres bikini.
While I’ll moan, complain, and send around a “million strong against Instagram’s algorithm” petition.
… and I’ll think I’m totally justified in my frustration with Instagram’s algorithm and their
stupid “you need 10K followers to have links in your story” rule, it’s because of them that I found Natalie Martin.
Sure, Rihanna’s been photographed in Natalie Martin dresses and she’s done a collaboration with Anthropologie before (Natalie Martin, not Rihanna lol).
… but, like, I’ve been literally living
under on a rock for the last 4 years.
Eres swimwear is the kind of swimwear that
you I have always dreamed of.
I mean, Eres was the first brand dedicated to swimwear.
… and they’re owned by Chanel — so you know their bathing suits have to be pretty luxurious, dreamy, and extra special.
After all my “I wanna be a dream French cool girl” nonsense, it makes sense that Eres would be my ideal swimwear brand.
… but, my Eres obsession has nothing to do with that whole “dream French cool girl” stuff.
I don’t remember how or when I heard about Lunya.
… it was probably during one of my (many) silk slip dress searches.
Lunya’s thing is high quality pajamas — like high quality nice pajamas.
Every night I just throw on a beat up blink-182 t-shirt to sleep — hoping for dreams where I’m front row at the rock show.
Basically, I’m not really one for nice pajamas… however, silk is one of my favourite fabrics.
Sometimes, you get overwhelmed with what’s new.
The new brand that’s splashed on street-style stars, the new Instagram It-brand…
… so much “newness” that you forget the classics.
For a new white button down shirt, my first stop was Everlane… which was new to me.
A trip to Palm Springs here, a week driving down to Newport Beach there…
The past few summers have been road trip heavy.
All of these road trips have taken the I-5 through the San Joaquin Valley.
Dry as a piece of straw, it’s the opposite of torrential summers in Panamá (where I call home).
Last fall, I was scrolling through photos of Alexa Chung.
In one photo, she was wearing a baby blue sweater, jeans, and mini Chestnut Uggs, and I was like that’s what my wardrobe has been missing…
… I mean, the baby blue sweater, not the Uggs.
At this point,
your my consumerism is ruining the planet.
It’s hard to accept that buying more cashmere to keep you warm, is in fact making the planet warmer.
… but leave it to Reformation to make all of us feel a little less guilty about ruining our planet with their cashmere sweaters.
