What I Wore: West Coast Ivy

I’ve been experimenting with the polarizing denim-and-blazer look a bit lately, and while it may not ever become a central part of my style it’s worked out better than I initially thought.

A Trip East

One of the most challenging aspects of packing for me is dealing with tailored clothing – it takes up a lot of space, doesn’t respond that well to folding, and, as much as I love wearing it, can be a hassle during a trip. For that reason, I’m trying something new for this trip and […]
