Who remembers those chokers made out of ribbon that Kristin Cavallari used to wear all of the time on Laguna Beach? I’m pretty sure that after she debuted those on tv, I started wearing them with my outfits to school. What a trendsetter. When I was visiting Gelesia in LA this past September, I caught her wearing a similar style – this time – with a little extra fabric, thinner, and made of suede. I asked her if she could cut me a piece before I hopped back on the plane to San Francisco. I loved wearing this with my red dress and dressing it down a little bit more casually. Basically you wrap it around the front the first time then when you circle it around the second time, you tie the knot and let the rest hang down. It kind of makes me feel like a modern cowgirl when I wear it with my hat.

By the looks of this month’s closet collection, you would think that we were already gearing up for fall! That, however, just isn’t true. I’ve noticed recently that while out shopping, I’ve been indulging in pieces that tend to be on the more neutral side – whites, creams, grays, and blacks. I’ve always been a fan of the classic style, but one thing is for sure – I definitely don’t get dressed up as much as I did in college. Back then, bold and bright pieces were my trademark, but these days – I’m not really dressing for anyone else other than myself and I’m not meeting new people every single day so getting dressed in the morning has become simplified. With that, here are my picks for July!
Without even noticing, every “A Collection” post has some sort of a theme. I always enjoy going back and looking at the different sets asking myself what the common theme was. What was I feeling that day? Why did I select this photo, that photo, and this series of photos? I started writing this about a fourth into completing this post and I noticed that all of the photographs are pretty simplistic, but also muted. There are times when I won’t remember why there is a theme, but I think this completely embodies how I’m feeling right now. Somewhat muted, but it’s a refreshing time right now because there is so much that is unknown. Also – Seattle has the hottest weather in all of the country right now, which is incredible and NEVER happens. Funny, because you would think that these photos would be much brighter to resemble that, but they are not. Surprise!
