My love affair with bralettes has long been documented on my blog— lace, cutouts, asymmetric straps, you name it, I probably have it. I remember Cosabella being one of the first lingerie brands to begin the bralette revolution, as I'm going to call it, and to make me start considering the bralette as an option outside of structured, padded bras. Now, I would say I wear bralettes about 80% of the time, and am thrilled to finally own some timeless Cosabella pieces! Their pieces are handmade in Italy using their signature stretch lace, and I already know they'll stand the test of time.

The sheer trench is my new closet obsession. I find them tricky to style, especially in white, but I absolutely love the double cape-like layer on the back of this one, which I think makes it more this-is-actually-outerwear and less I'm-wearing-a-sleep-robe. The weather is still warm enough to throw it over summer basics— I even wore it over my swimsuit to the beach during our trip down the coast the other weekend!

And this necklace! I've been all over the Dylanlex trend, as I'm sure many of you are. But with prices upward of $1000 (!), I had to resort to finding the best inspired piece. So far, this is the best one I've found on the market. (And just found this great one too for a bit more of an investment.) Not much of a silver-wearer these days after switching hardcore to gold-toned jewelry a couple of years ago, but I'm making an exception for this one!

A more obvious title for this post would have been "No White After Labor Day," but let's be honest, white on white is my fave combo all year long. Now let's talk about these One Teaspoon shorts— they're perfectly shredded, unbelievably soft, and effortlessly slouchy. I finally get what all the hype is over One Teaspoon denim. And all Aussie labels, for that matter. DailyLook has a great selection of some of my favorite Aussie brands, including CameoBless'ed are the Meek, Finders Keepers, and Keepsake to name just a few.

In other news, I spent the holiday weekend relaxing down the coast in Big Sur. I first made my way down there last year, and this time made sure to hit up this spot that I've been dying to see— did not disappoint!

A quick grab for an outer layer as an afterthought while running out the door turned into this little matching short suit. I've always loved the matchy-matchy shorts + blazer combo, but have never owned the perfect pieces to pull it off. Enter these delicate organza silk shorts from local boutique JYJZ in the perfect creamy hue. Accidental or not, this ensemble has quickly become a new favorite for these lingering summer days.

In other news, a huge thank you to Refinery29 for including me in their roundup of the coolest SF bloggers! I've been reading Refinery29 for years and years, so it was pretty amazing to see myself included among such kick ass ladies. As always, thank you for following along!
