Pleats and studs

Here in LA it already feels like we're in the thick of summer and when I step out, the last thing I want to feel is extra weight or clingy fabric on me. This translates into stepping out in shapeless tops, open, a-line pleated skirts, and maybe the most crucial accessory of the season: a mini cross-body bag. Because who wants to lug around a heavy shoulder bag when the heat already feels all too-consuming? I know the cross-body has been around for a minute but I'd been on the look out for THE one--the right shape, structure, leather type--and finally found it in this Saint Laurent beaut from Gasmy. One that met all of above with an added touch of detail- the small silver studs did it for me.

The little things that elevate basics--necklines, pleats, discreet studs--are what make it perfectly okay for me to continue purchasing things in my wide color spectrum of neutrals. You know, for easy dressing and for effortless integration with other classic basics, like this denim jacket. When the heat finally gives in to some evening time breeze, a broken-in rigid denim jacket goes over the pleats and studs- done.

I like everything about your outfit! Your blouse is very pretty and I love your skirt (I'm obsessed with every type of skirt. You make me wanna have summer, but unfortunately where I live, we're all enjoying (or maybe suffering) autumn.
Nice look!

I'm not one for cross body bags, but I agree, that is definitely the one! Very cute! I love the skirt and the top too! I wish it were hotter here--we can't even put on the AC yet... I think we have still been using heat actually!

I love your outfit! That blouse is pretty and comfortable and the pleats on your skirt are just so beautiful! I always thought cross shoulder bags are a little childish, but you made it look so good I might have to try it out myself :D
