CHOLITA

Jun 26, 2011


Mom's shirt // vintage Mexican baja shorts // Balenciaga cut out boots // Margiela bracelet

A little Proenza Schouler, no? I warned you I'm all about the cholo shorts this summer.

My mom's wool and houndstooth shirt from the 70s. One of the few things I have left of her. I always wondered what I would eventually wear it with. I imagined it needed to be just perfect. Probably the most unexpected combination, but you know when you have those aha moments? Well here's mine. My absolute favorite summer outfit. California girl through and through.

Always loving your simple, clean looks.
The blue nail polish + MMM bracelet are a perfect touch for finished up look.
