This weekend Sam and I attended the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. It’s probably one of my favorite social events of the year. I get to catch up with industry friends all the while sipping on some of the best bubbly. This year I wore a very special dress I bought when Sam and I were in Paris last year. It’s by a Japanese designer, Tsumori Chisato. She adds an incredible sense of whimsy to all of her designs and creates her own beautiful prints. The  sailboat print for this dress came from watercolors she painted herself. It’s one of my favorite pieces. It’s delicate, playful, and the sheer draping adds a romantic touch. I pull it out whenever I need something special to wear. I love feeling confident knowing no one else will be wearing this dress.

I’ve always loved a good pleated skirt. I think it is a great addition to any seasonal wardrobe. This style has been around for decades and has consistently earned a spot in my wardrobe. My very first midi length pleated skirt was a gold vintage YSL piece that if you’ve been following this blog for a while is very familiar to you. This pale yellow version from Elizabeth & James is really lovely. Its’ subtle yellow hue makes it feel fresh and youthful. I can’t wait to continue styling it with booties, cozy sweaters and pretty coats as the weather cools off.

Something simple I’ve been wearing this week is this delicate silky slip dress.  A light jacket and layered gold accessories take the slip into the long summer nights. One of our favorite summer evening activities is the Yamashiro Night Market. It’s a low key farmers market with some great local food, live music, and breathtaking views of the city. With summer wrapping up I’m looking forward to fall, but I’ll miss all of the warm weather happenings that spring up around the city.

This summer has been all about summer dresses for me. I’m totally guilty of getting stuck in mini style ruts. I often gravitate to certain shapes, cuts. and colors. Twirl worthy maxi dresses and pretty floral prints are always going to catch my eye. It’s part of my personal style and I’ve learned to appreciate having a certain aesthetic that works for me.

Easy breezy outfit for a Monday spent running errands.  I picked up beautiful hydrangeas for the house, my favorite Diptyque candle, and a couple of new cook books. Summer days in the city of angels are long and slow, just the way I like them.
