Yin And Yang: Cuyana Poplin Cinched Waist Dress

You know that one friend that seems to always show up coordinated with you - not because you planned it, but because your guys are just on the same wavelength? Well, that’s us, every single time. Here’s our latest fashion mind-meld moment…

I also insisted on a stop at Joan Didion's childhood home, which was completely worth it. She's written about this home a bit here and there, and it was pretty special to be able to place this literal cornerstone of her early experiences.

I also used the trip as an excuse to break out these Jenny Bird earrings, which I actually had the honor of seeing before the were produced back in October, when I visited Jenny in her studio. They were my favorites then and they are now IRL. I love the fresh white enamel - it's such a eye-catching essential for the warm weather months (although I'll be wearing them all year - can you imagine how good they would look with a turtleneck?).

Stephanie and I don't get to see each other that often, but between talking on GChat and Whatsapp nearly every day and making trips to see each other at least twice a year, it's been easy to stay close. Hopefully she'll come visit me soon again down south...
