four eyes

calivintage: bonlook

today is an extra special outfit post because you get two for the price of one! that’s right, my brother and i planned a little shoot together while i was visiting my hometown over the holiday weekend. we’re in front of my grandmother’s old house on the stoop where we’ve spent so many summer afternoons since we were little kids. and this is what we wore on a sweltering sunday to beat the 104 degree heat. on days like this, the philosophy of “less is more” most definitely rings true. one more layer or even slightly heavier fabric would make the weather pretty much unbearable.

we were both in desperate need of some new frames, so my sponsor bonlook, generously let us pick out some new glasses for the occasion. and when an outfit is simple like this, it’s the perfect opportunity to accessorize with a pair of statement glasses. i’m thanking my lucky stars to have discovered them because their $99 price tag certainly beats the $400+ i spent on my last pair. in fact, i’ve already got my eye on a couple more styles to mix and match with different outfits.

i am wearing…
top: j.crew racerback tank
skirt: asos
shoes: kork ease teresa sandals
bag: j.w. hulme mini legacy bag
lipstick: ysl fard a levres rouge pur in rosy coral
glasses: bonlook simply fabulous in brown

on my brother…
top: american apparel raglan shirt
pants: thrifted vintage levi’s 501s
shoes: alden indy work boots
glasse: bonlook cocktail hour in black & tortoise

  1. What a great photo session. You and your brother look so much alike and I love both of your styles. I also like the sort of hazy atmosphere of the photos, which obvs reflects the weather but also is a nice touch with the fact that you’re at your grandmothers house.

  2. Hooray for siblings. I like how you two coordinated with clean and cool whitte, blue and denim. These photos are great. Good to see you smile.

  3. I mean this as a sincere compliment: the chain ring grease mark on your bro’s jeans? I’d recognize that anywhere. Bike lover realness.

    1. thank you! i’m really glad that you appreciate it. it’s a little different from what i normally do, but i feel that it is a very personal and important portrayal of who i am. thank you!

  4. I agree with agata, your brother reminds me of John Lennon, too! Love both of your spectacles, I need a new pair or two lol.

  5. So cute! I need some new frames too. I checked on the Kork-Ease website for those amazing shoes you are wearing and I couldn’t see them. Are they last seasons?

  6. definite resemblance here & he has great style as well! these are adorable pics of you too & love your skirt & shoes & your grandma’s old house looks so cool!
