Coated Casual

I might be the only weirdo in LA who actually enjoys the “June Gloom” part of summer. Until I moved here, I had no idea that the sun is basically absent for the first half of every day in June and there’s a chill in the air. I like the oddness of it. You could easily think that you’ve been transported into Fall, which creates this twilight zone of fashion inspiration.

This outfit is comprised of all my go to pieces as of late. These coated trousers from Zara are so comfortable – perfectly stretchy yet sleek and they are made for the transition weather. My chambray shirt is probably the most reached for thing in my closet right now, and I’ve been telling every single one of my clients that they need one too. It suits pretty much everyone and gets better the more you wear and wash it. I love how this version is a bit oversized and longer in the back, giving it a an extra touch of drama.
