losing my cool

The Steele Maiden: Losing my Cool
This lace dress has now successfully transitioned from Summer to Fall to Winter (okay, okay, it's not so hard when that's only been about a 20 degree temperature swing in LA.. but still).  These days I'm loving mixing it with super casual pieces like this perfectly cozy sweater from my friends over at Langford Market (50% Off right now!) and this thrifted men's button down.  The look plays into a whole laid back cool that I try and channel on my days off.  But, because the universe serves to come and knock you back down to size, immediately after taking these photos I fell off the top bleachers.  And I don't mean a little misstep.  I mean, backpack flying, skirt lifting, limbs sprawling fall that resulted in pavements burns and bruises.  Sometimes, fashion really does hurt.  Wishing you a slightly more graceful entry into the weekend.
