Mondays are usually pretty rough, right? Add to that the fact that I’m feeling pretty beaten up from a minor climbing injury… and I am definitely in the mood to phone it in today. I’m looking at a 4-6 week recovery time for my knee (details shamelessly on Instagram), so I have the feeling I’ll be rocking lotssss of loungewear and pjs these days. Because I’m pretty much confined to the sofa with my trusty ice pack, I did a bit of online shopping, too, and let me tell you… the loungewear assortment at Urban Outfitters right now is spot on.

One of my favorite things in the world is when a t-shirt feels more like a whisper than a layer… especially when there is a lacy bralette underneath! The vibes are totally casual, but still sexy thanks to juuuuust-sheer-enough tees, draped flannel shirts, and hits of lace on otherwise nondescript panties.

Side note: are you one of those people who feels like ‘panties’ is a weird word? I’m sort on the fence.

Also, have you had enough of the ’90s revival yet?? Cuz I haven’t! Let me just say how jazzed I was to find the Calvin Klein pieces. Be still my ’90s-loving heart!!

So this will probably be my ‘look’ for the next few weeks… thoughts?

There’s something about summer that practically begs me to shirk all responsibility and just be outside instead. And, as hot as it’s been, I’ll do anything to catch a breeze. Living in the most urban part of Seattle, getting outdoor space can be tricky — hence, my studio’s fire escape. It’s not exactly the green space I crave, but at this point, any outdoor spot will do!

For the longest time, I was always really worried about pairing a voluminous top with boyfriend jeans. It’s just… a lot of fabric and a higher possibility of making, ahem, certain areas appear larger than they actually are. That being said… there was something so natural about pairing this top with these jeans. Maybe it was all of the skin I’m showing in the back, almost like it’s a distraction from the layers of fabric making my butt look enlarged. Or maybe it’s the skinny tie at the waist that helps to define and contain the volume. Either way, this look is both comfortable and super wearable for my day-to-day.

And can we talk about the back of this top?? I’ve had it hanging in my closet for the longest time and was always too much of a chicken to wear it. Then, one day, inspiration struck. It’s funny how that works, right?

nordstrom anniversary sale must-haves jojotastic.com

If there is one sale that I shop each and every year… it’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Fun fact: did you know I used to work there? Long, long ago, I designed bedding for them! Every since being part of the ‘Nordstrom family,’ I’ve felt this strangely special connection to shopping there. It might even be rooted in earlier memories: my mom took me there for my first bra fitting and I bought my prom dress at Nordstrom. And don’t even get me started on every single positive experience I’ve had at the beauty counter… that place can be dangerous!

When I shop for jewelry I tend to have two modes: oversized, ornate vintage pieces or clean-cut geometric pieces. The latter is become my favorite more and more, especially as my style transitions into a less-fussy vibe during the hotter summer months. Enter Morning Ritual Jewelry. Maker Shayna creates what she calls “visually concise jewelry” and I couldn’t agree more.

Simple geometry is clearly the inspiration here, but what really does it for me are the materials: malachite, matte onyx, and even marble. Oh, and she names each piece after famous industrial designers like Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer — clearly this is a jewelry line after my own heart!

Wow — where is summer going?? I can’t seem to wrap my mind around it being July next week. It’s been such an incredible summer here in Seattle and, for real, it feels like it keeps getting better and better. Next week I’m headed to Vancouver with a friend for a little road trip action, too. It’s kinda weird that we’re going to Canada for the 4th of July, definitely didn’t plan that one out really well…

The height of summer is really just the perfect time to wear all white. And, of course, me being me… I need to have at least one pop of color. Enter these gorgeous blue suede heels I scored at Nordstrom Rack for a song. They are simple, elegant, and just quirky enough to fit in with my personal style. I bought them to wear to a friend’s wedding this summer, but you know… you gotta break in the new shoes, right?

Then there’s my new favorite summer piece: this incredible lacy sheer maxi top from Free People. It’s so amazing. Kinda like one part dress, one part tank top, and soooo much boho style. This top is unlike anything else I’ve ever owned and definitely a great addition to my wardrobe. The appliqué and embroidery on it is so perfectly delicate, lending a great amount of texture to an all-white look.

art x denim — a gorgeous collaboration with textile designer susan connor and everything golden // www. jojotastic.com

Denim cutoffs are one of summer’s absolute must-haves — it kinda feels like you can never have too many pairs. Textile designer Susan Connor reached out to me recently with this new collab she did with Everything Golden and I’m more than obsessed. (check out the post I wrote about Susan over on Anthology, too). The collection is made up of 7 vintage pieces, each reimagined with patches of Susan’s handprinted fabrics.

I think one of the most special details of this collaboration is that the pieces traveled from Bozeman, Montana (one of my favorite places) to NYC and back again, making it a truly cross-country project.

I’ve got my eye on the cut offs, but how great would these boyfriend jeans be come fall??

STYLE // casual bohemian www.jojotastic.com

Working for yourself is kind of a funny thing — I’m not ashamed to admit that much time is spent working from my sofa simply because I can. The novelty has yet to wear off. But now that I’m in Seattle, I’ve got shared space and it’s been truly life changing. I have a normal-ish schedule for the first time in a long time (hello, weekends) and it requires me to actually get dressed for the day. This means I’m rediscovering so much good stuff in my wardrobe, especially since it’s spring, too!

STYLE // casual bohemian www.jojotastic.com

My style has always felt more bohemian, less preppy… more casual, and less formal. I want my tops to billow and float, my jeans make my ass pop, and my shoes to give lift without impeding my crazy-fast walking pace. Oh, and I need a huge bag on me at all times.

STYLE // casual bohemian www.jojotastic.com

Sometimes I feel like my style is a bit weird. I’m a firm believer in basics — i.e. I practically live in tees and jeans. But my style also veers very bohemian, making my look way more about layering basics than I think is traditionally associated with boho style. Don’t get me wrong, I love paisleys and prints of all kinds… but I tend to steer clear and opt for a pop of pattern with an otherwise simple look.

My boho spirit also tends to come out in the way of accessories: oversized sunglasses, a great turquoise ring, and a super silly printed tote.

Clearly, I am so pumped to be doing style shoots again!
