Sezane Denim

March 27, 2017


Stylestalker top
Sezane jeans and boots

Nothing more easy than a good pair of blue jeans and white menswear-style blouse. I like my blouse crispy white, a bit oversized and able to be tied or wrapped.

My mind and bones have been warmed as a result of a day free to frolic in Los Angeles. As soon as I step foot back home, I start to feel a little bit more relieved from the stresses of delayed subways, long commutes from north Brooklyn to South Brooklyn, overcrowded sidewalks, overpriced vegan food and french fries, overly sceney Soho restaurants that make me feel like I have to do my hair before entering, endless apartment hunting that is endless because nothing is exactly how I want it to be, winters that slap you in the face and heavy Whole Food bags that break on the walk home. Then there is the fact that there is never enough time to read a book at the end of the day, let alone on my long and sleepy commute. Time to get everything on my to-do list done in one weekend? Impossible. Man, if life could really be as simple as blue jeans and a white button down shirt. Los Angeles, thank you for being that simple combination for me. A little denim escape that encapsulates my mind for the few days at a time that I am home. 

Don’t get me wrong, all the annoying little things about New York City will never overshadow all the beautiful, amazing, substantial parts of it. But right now, I’m feeling very much like a L.A. Woman in her blue jeans and white blouse.

Sun Drenched Denim

Sezane jacket, jeans and purse
Elizabeth and James top
Topshop mules
Argento Vivo earrings
Cluse watch

This weekend is going to officially feel like spring. We get a warmer Saturday here, and I get to relax with my boo doing fun things to celebrate one year of our relationship. And then I’m off to Los Angeles for a few days for a little family and friend time, but also for an exciting launch that my sister and I will be a part of. I’m so, so ready for that west coast sunshine . . .  I’ve been craving it so much these past few days. 

Make sure to watch out for the relaunch of Sezane denim on March 29. It’s so fab! And one can never get enough denim, right?

The One Day I Dressed Preppy

The one day I dressed preppy . . . and it was totally okay. This blue stripe and blue denim combination wasn’t really meant to happen, but for some reason it did and for another reason it fit right in on my a lazy Sunday exploring the Brickell, Miami neighborhood the day after a bit too much champagne. Is alcohol now motivating my fashion decisions?! Lol. Mmmm, most likely not . . . although we could say it is the case here. Really, I think I’m just opening myself up to options usually found to be unexpected to me. And I allowed myself to get away with that, and without asking the permission of other’s. Is this too preppy for me? No one else had to answer that for me. My own answer though, would be along the lines of . . . probably yes, a bit too preppy for my usual rock and roll taste, but sometimes I like to tease myself into taking on a different sort of persona with my outfit choices. Just a little tease for the personal excitement . . . not for anyone else, just for myself. But not all of myself is teased away here . . . the belly baring, the kitschy pop of salmon pink, the dangling teardrop earrings. I wouldn’t give myself up that much for the sake of trying something outside my usual box. The same can be applied to dating, and friendships and even job interviews.Even one’s approach to a workout routine! There are always things to be sacrificed and molded a bit to suit certain situations and mindsets, but never should the core of who you are have to diminish in any way. Now I look at these pictures of myself, and see the distinct parts of who I am amplified in a new way by the conservative stripes paired with basic blues. A grown of version of Dylana who I am now completely open to getting to know more. Maybe you’ll see her around a little bit more. It’s all a matter of making room for all the different parts of yourself to co-exist at once.

Girl on Fire

The Seafarer suede pants

Kate Spade shoes

I’ve been loving these red suede pants by The Seafarer lately; addicted to their color punch ever since I first wore them during NYFW. Since then my fashion routine has been dedicated to them relentlessly. I’m surprised they haven’t been stained to a never-to-be-worn-again state already, but I’m grateful for their sustaining durability. This pair has been getting AROUND TOWN, and they’ll keep on going. Never underestimate a good pair of red pants. Especially a pair cut to Audrey Hepburn length perfection. Beaming in direct sunlight. They were made for spring baby.
