(rodarte skirt from yoox.com, mandy coon leather top, jil sander shoes from jane)
Summer has arrived and it is high time indeed. Oh, how Chicago's winters can drag on and on, and leaving us aching for a spot of warmth and bit of sun. This ensemble was cooling and took me to brunch. I am enjoying exploring my new neighborhood; taking in a matinee at the resplendent Logan Theater or eating charming rustic cuisine at Longman & Eagle (located conveniently around the corner from my apartment), or even just stumbling around amongst hidden bookstores and art spaces. This neighborhood fills me a sense of home that I have always ached for. Maybe that's one reason I love this skirt so much; with its cerulean vase print, it too, feels like home.
Quite possibly the most beautiful shoes I own, and walkable now that excellent brunch spots are just across the street.
Subtle leather fringe on the back of my leather top, brooding, quiet moodiness, and a compelling detail.
