color scheme.



Forever 21 open knit top | Zara silk petal shorts | Zara dual toned heeled sandals | Forever 21 various rings | Theyskens' Theory "vala" leather messenger bag | Ray-Ban large classic wayfarer sunglasses | Essie "eternal optimist" nail lacquer

Something about the summer makes me want to go monochromatic with my wardrobe. Not sure if the strong rays of the sun already uplifts all things of bright hues, or if the heightened temperatures make me want to stay simple in apparel. Either way, it makes my mornings much more efficient pairing the two colors that are the foundation of any palette. I am also keen on open knit tops. Always like the somewhat rocker and airy look of them, which aided to the persona of the summer stroll we took in the artist district in downtown L.A. Even the lightweight shorts that were on the verge of being athletic and lounge wear simultaneously were a nice assistance to cooling down.
