I generally don't plan for or even dress for seasons, but this Fall I'm inexplicably (not really) obsessed with finding as many jumpsuits in as many textures as possible and the perfect pair of leather overalls. Neither of which have any shred of practicality for the mild Los Angeles "winters" but both of which would make me so happy (and even more masculine). yay!

I don't know if it's the perfectionist in me or the creative in me that strives for a certain aesthetic level in the things I put out - be it my real life work or these here blog posts. Isn't it natural to keep wanting to progress? Well I fell into this cycle of pushing myself to do better and better posts and so would only publish outfits or photography that seemed worthwhile. The truth is, I dress the same most days so that boring repetition seemed to serve progressively less and less a purpose here. But I had to remind myself that this is for me. I'm not trying to impress anyone. The more I approached it as a project to overcome, the more it felt like a job. It's always been an accurate representation of me, but lately the more polished parts. I'm just going to take it back to a more balanced peek into my life. Boring days and all.
You can take a girl out of Corona, but you can never take Corona out of a girl. I'll always have a soft spot for serapes, hair nets, and oversized-too-long shorts. Maybe it's this affinity that's making it easy for me to love Shaun Samson. It's probably no coincidence that his California roots seep into his menswear design, UK-based or not. From last year's needle punch flannel knits to (above) SS12's colorful Mexi stripes, to (below) FW12's heavy cholo vibes, it's all hitting home for me.
