Riccardo. I absolutely die for these pants. Not only are they super comfortable but they are the only striped pants I’d ever wear. Actually, that’s a lie – I’ve worn other striped pants but these are just cool in their own way. The yellow sleeveless blouse is a stolen vintage Prada shirt from the one and only place I shop, my mothers closet. These pictures were all done on a whim. It was after a long weekend, so the hammock was my favorite place to shoot. Doesn’t get any better than being in a peaceful environment, swaying on a hammock in beautiful weather, and of course in a really great outfit. I am as we speak on the hunt for a birthday dress. My birthday is the 13th but celebrating this saturday the 12th, so I don’t have much time. Any suggestions?! Something bright and summery!
x, A

    A few things things about this look other than the fact that IDIE for it…

    1. Earrings didn't get enough credit, I love how Fenton Fallon does the perfect job of designing jewelry with both an edgy and sexy/feminine balance, they were a V-day gift from my boyfriend and the best gift ever- Don't forget to check out Fenton Fallon's collaboration with J.Crew, so many fabulous pieces!
    2. These pants as i'm sure many of you remember are a total Balenciaga knock-off. We have all seen unfortunate cases of girls trying to pull off the Balenciaga stripe but i knew Arielle would rock it well, and the contrast of the hammock netting makes for great artistic quality in this photo!
    3. I still think you should have called this look Rasputtin. Great Post Ar, can't wait for bday dress shopping!
