Sometimes, if you lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known

Sheer sleeves blazer from Hong Kong boutique, Flesh Imp tank, Adam silk shorts, Zara sandals, Balenciaga Arena Giant Envelope clutch

These were taken at La Jolla Cove after brunch at Nine Ten when my boyfriend and I were in San Diego a couple weeks ago. I could sit on that ledge for hours just watching the ocean swell and slam into the rocks below eroded smooth by constant crashing waves. If there was public Wi-Fi access, I'd be out there with a lawn chair (or probably something more comfortable if I thought it through) and my laptop writing and working.

Anyway, about the clutch, I was debating between this color or black, but I like that this dusty blue is muted just enough to go with everything. Btw I wore this to the Gilt City Seattle blogger luncheon I posted about. Yes, I'm a frequent outfit repeater and will wear something almost a week straight if it's comfy and I'm lazy enough.. probably too much information and now you're all kind of grossed out but tis is my life. Except I dressed it up for the luncheon with some half metallic/half mesh/full awesomeness Maison Martin Margiela heels I'll have to post up another time.

  12. Great choice on the clutch colour! I used to go for the black of everything, but I'm trying to mix it up a bit these days. I think the blue is muted enough to almost make it grey so it's almost a neutral, and I can picture it going with a million things!

  16. Excellent choice going with the color vs black option. I know black is all sensible but this is much more fun. I bought my PS1 in black and not a day goes by that I wish I had got a fun color instead;)
