Warm Weather Whiteout

When I saw the Accuweather forecast pinned LA in the 90s this week, I knew I had to do something to beat the heat. What better way to reflect some rays than with an easy all-white look? (Yeah, I know it isn't Memorial Day yet... but who believes in those silly rules anyway? Carpe Diem, ya know?)

That - coupled with this amazing east side discovery I made earlier this week while meeting for coffee in Los Feliz - and this look was born. This work of art is entitled "Projection" and is an ephemeral piece by French artist Vincent Lamouroux. Formerly the dilapidated Bates Motel - aptly named because of its location on Sunset & Bates, and because of its eerie resemblance to the Hitchcock haunt from Psycho - now appears completely transformed thanks to a thin layer of limewash.

Truly, this work is even more stunning in person. It almost hurts my eyes to look at it, or maybe hurts my brain... it's one of those sights that seem impossible, or too unusual to be real. But there she stands. So, Nick and I went to work and shot this look outside its palm tree lined and barbed-wire covered gates (also painted white, of course)

I'm wearing a classic white tee from the Gap, and a great pair of rip & repair white denim shorts from Madewell. Paired them with my simple Madewell cuff, and trusty pair of white Chucks and managed to pull off a full whiteout, without looking like a house painter. Like the look? Click the names to shop!
