I would not consider myself a shoe person. I don’t like shopping for them, I don’t like wearing colorful or bright ones, and you won’t see me wearing pointy heels unless I absolutely have to. When I think about how I want to spend my money, it’s usually on things like Martha Stewart iphone apps and polka dot shirts, not shoes. But I’d be lying straight to your face if I said I didn’t dabble in ankle boots every so often.
Pretty much the only shoes I wear are boots of the ankle variety. I just love them. They speak to me. They say “Janelle, we GET YOU. We understand you. Let’s be together forever.” I mean, I can’t really say no to that. Laced, Chelsea, motorcycle, heeled, faux Isabel Marants, you name em, I love em. But my love for shoes starts and stops there. I don’t care about any other kind, really.

I love, love, love hot weather. My soul craves it. My pale skin obviously needs it too. I swear these photos were taken BEFORE I laid out by the pool and not after! But give me a 90 degree day and a pair of shorts and I’m in my happy zone. Also, I’m that person who wears a palm tree shirt in Palm Springs. I just HAD to. It felt right, ya know?
As mentioned here, I spent the last few days in PS and I’ll be damned if my soul doesn’t feel a hundred times better! The heat will do that to ya. More photos from the trip coming tomorrow.

We all have those clothing items that we’d wear every day if we could. Don’t you dare deny it. Oh if I could, I’d wear a combination of this outfit every damn day. But you’d probably think I was a weirdo, so I reign it in and only wear it about once (okay twice) a week. Not this exact outfit in particular per se, but a version of it. Sure, I’ll add some extras into the mix like a button-up shirt under the sweater or a colorful knit scarf or maybe even shorts instead of the jeans.
But for the most part, I like it just like that – simple and unfussy, easy and boyish. It’s ME and this is what I’m comfortable in.
My uniform is as follows:
a crew neck sweater (I prefer this Everlane one)
+ perfectly worn denim (these Madewells are similar to the ones above)
+ Wigwam socks (the comfiest of comfy socks)
+ ankle boots (these Chelsea versions have been in heavy rotation lately)
And yes, it’s about to get hot in LA so my exact uniform will be sidelined for a bit, but don’t worry, I have a summer version of it and although I’m sure you can guess what it is, I’ll share my summertime uniform soonsies!
What’s your uniform combo?

You guys. I’m doing a little spring cleaning and selling a few thangs from my closet on Copious. I’m an eBayer at heart but love the look and feel of this new-to-me selling platform (plus The Man Repeller and Oh Joy use Copious and I pretty much trust them with my life). I’ve listed a few pair of jeans (ranging from Acne to J Brand), some dresses (Topshop, ASOS, etc), a couple sweaters, a sweet pair of Soludos, and an adorable floppy fedora that matches my hair color exactly so would probably look way better on you.
I’ll be reloading the shop often so come back anytime. Also, if you click the “SHOP” button in the navigation bar at the top of my site, it will go directly to my Copious listings.

Kyle and I sometimes wear the same shoes. We also have a lot of the same clothing items. Is that normal? Probably. Maybe?? Not at all? I don’t know really. But don’t worry, we’re also polar opposites in a lot of ways. I mean, whereas he uses only one notebook to jot down his thoughts, I rotate between 5 and 15 notebooks at a time. How can a person get by with only one notebook?
Anyway, here are a few of our snazzy and somewhat similar things side-by-side (my stuff on the left, his on the right):
HER: Madewell Polka Dot Shirt (similar here) // HIS: Gitman Bros. Polka Dot Shirt
HER: Bumble & Bumble Semisumo hair product // HIS: Bumble & Bumble Sumotech hair product
HER: Rotating stack of notebooks // HIS: Evernote Moleskine notebook
HER: Supergas // HIS: Supergas
