Walter De Maria is one of my favorite artists.  He passed at the age of 77 yesterday.  His works were astounding and fine examples of minimal yet monumental art installations. Two of those are pictured below (The Broken Kilometer and the Earth Room).

It may be hard to look bad when you are Daria Werbowy, but she should be applauded for this sophisticated, yet young get-up on the Lancome/Alber Elbaz step and repeat.  Spot on with the beachy waves, statement lip and all nude ensemble.

Every year the CFDA fashion awards brings a wide variety of talented designers, models and celebs.  I think it must be the best dressed event of the year.  Would never have predicted this, but by far my favorite look of the night was Nicole Richie in Marc Jacobs.

It’s wedding season!  I am in 3 weddings this year.  One of my dearest friends is getting married in Mexico, another lovely friend in Santa Barbara and my little sister is getting married as well!  This Acne dress is what I’m wearing as a bridesmaid in Santa Barbara at The Presidio.  Can’t wait to see all my lovely ladies on their special day.

There’s something about warmer weather that makes me want to toss aside anything cumbersome.  But, alas, I’m still a 9 to 5 kind of gal and need to carry all sorts of oddities around.  Hence, my newest obsession.  Sturdy cotton canvas bags from WANT Les Essentials De La Vie.

These bags first entered my world when I bought the O’Hare bag in black.  It fits everything and doesn’t break your back.  Then I went for round two with a khaki smaller bag called the Orly bag (found at one of my favorite stores Maison Kitsune).  Understated, simple and did I mention LIGHT?

These looks don’t feel entirely new, but it’s what I crave come warmer weather.  Now, if the weather could be a balmy 60-75 F we’d really be set!

My first time to Austin and to SXSW.  Went for work and couldn’t have asked for a better place to capture fun summer trends.  Great music, people watching and food!  Saw some bands including Solange, Chvrches, Alt-J and Vampire Weekend to name a few.  All in all a fun week of work + play.
