July 9, 2010

they chase their dreams and inhale the sky.









f21 crochet top, madewell denim shorts, boutique 9 boots.
zara blouse, random lace skirt from hong kong, random belt.
vintage white slip, diy harness.
vintage silk trousers, j.crew sandals, f21 flower rings.

My summer lookbook of sorts...mainly just current favorite pieces and stuff on (pretty heavy) rotation right now. For someone who's not really a fan of crochet, I've been wearing this crochet top a ton. I think it's because all the holes make it a perfect piece for layering in the summer without passing out from heatstroke. Throw in some watermelon, a pomegranate and berry popsicle, and a nice cool pool and you could almost call this a post on some simple ways to not melt in the sweltering heat. Of course, air conditioning is nice too-or maybe standing in front of the freezer-but nobody's going to drag their favorite fishy beach chair inside to do that.

this black sort-of-looking-like-it's-knitted top is an extremely tricky thing to wear, I guess. You totally made it look cool with the whole outfit but let me tell you that in Poland, A LOT of women in their 50s would choose a completely different styling for this haha :)

the crochet top is awesome..but what's more beautiful is your DIY harness over your white slip...looks so delicate and hard-ass at the same time!
