Three Outfits from Last Week

As I’ve written extensively (and ironically) here on Substack, I find myself longing for the analog life. Life feels more real when it’s not documented continuously, when outfits aren’t chosen for some fictional audience but for yourself and your day. The “undocumented life”* is something that greatly appeals to me right now.

Two people (Leandra Medine Cohen and Harling Ross Anton) shared posts about outfits “in the wild” this week, which you can read here and here. These both were a big inspiration in viewing how I share my outfits going forward. I love to get dressed and share successful looks, but at its core, getting dressed for me means dressing for my own, actual life… and not for Instagram.

This is particularly true in the summer. I love getting dressed in warm weather because everything feels so much easier: probably because my outfits are dictated by function. That clear criteria is a fun challenge to make my outfits interesting and lovely as well as practical. Here are three outfits from last week I particularly enjoyed.

Share Fewer & Better: The Staple

A few additional notes for your Saturday:

Net a Porter is having a strikingly good sale: everything on sale is an additional 15% off. It makes picking up black tie or cocktail dresses much more palatable!

I’m eager to hear your thoughts on your perfect summer activities!
