This week’s editorial collage is inspired by Pantone’s colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. The perfect union of two opposites, finished in a dreamy saturation…gauzy fabrics that mimic sunrise clouds, and luminous finishes that mimic a dewy morning and a sunlit sky.

Going away for the holidays? Planning your honeymoon or another romantic getaway? Already stressed about coordinating looks without hauling your entire closet for a week?
Lucky for you, lingerie-inspired fashion looks are trending up — which means packing light just got a lot easier. Selecting lingerie items that pull double as bedroom stunners, comfortable under-layers and stylish statement pieces can help you condense your packing to very little effort and maximized style.
MORNING LINGERIE STYLE
Bralettes with longline silhouettes or accents down the ribcage are perfect for pairing with breezy tops with cutouts or dresses with low armholes for an easy-going day look. We selected a pastel palette and contrasted soft, delicate silk with rough and tumble denim.
- Silk accents
- Rosy mauve beauty
- Fresh scents
- Sturdy day dress
AFTERNOON LINGERIE STYLE
Even if you’re doing a lot of walking or seeing the sights, pretty accents can femme up an otherwise utilitarian base garment like the shirtdress. Look for one in a light and breezy material, then dress up with layers of show off lace underneath. Delicate, but comfortable and practical.
- Lacy peekaboo lingerie set
- A breezy shirtdress
- A little color & shimmer for your skin
NIGHT OUT lingerie style
A little edge after dusk? We think yes. Pairing sheer layers over this flirty demi cup bralette makes it a perfect 10 for nighttime looks. Nude look layers of creamy mesh and black lace are alluring, while still covering you up. We love a sheer cami for helping us take pretty lingerie out of the bedroom and into our outfits.
- Skin-softening moisturizer
- A luxe, sheer crop cami
- Romantic scents
- Nude-look lace
- Silk choker
Have you ever wished you could escape to an all pink whimsical wonderland? Have you ever wished such a place even existed? Welcome to dreams of Fuji Shibazakura — a springtime flower festival. In Japan, at the foot of the infamous Mt. Fuji, lies a breathtaking 2.4-hectare flower field where you can be surrounded by nearly 800,000 pink flowers, known as “shibazakura.” Surely, the flower festival is a surreal experience and a must-see for both nature aficionados and those who love all things pink!
Edgy eyeshadows, loud leggings, and lacy lingerie — kind of hard to pull off all at once. But Halloween is the perfect opportunity to stretch your imagination and pull out all of the stops from your wardrobe.
We’ve styled some of those items that get unfairly neglected all year round for the perfect Halloween inspo. Go equal parts edgy and romantic with 80s pop, genderbend with the spiders from Mars, or dramatic, beautiful & scary with a certain forgotten fairy…

I always go for Halloween costumes that fit my favorite beauty and fashion trends — it makes it easier to assemble a look. It’s the one holiday where the lesser-seen pieces in your wardrobe — out there accessories, bold makeup looks, and pretty underthings — can finally have their moment. (When in doubt, remember that the hardcore girls just wear lingerie and some form of animal ears.)
If you think about it, models are the perfect icons for Halloween. Who better knows how to play dress up and put on a new identity for a night? This year, I’m exploring fashion editorials and candid personal style images of my favorite top model/chameleon, Kate Moss, to brainstorm ideas for the perfect Halloween costume… featuring items I already own.
From timeless beauties like Marilyn Monroe to cult classic leading ladies like Penny Lane from Almost Famous and Cher & Dionne from Clueless, famous musicians like 90s Madonna, David Bowie & even Kurt Cobain …yep, Kate Moss has emulated all of them, and they’re all perfect Halloween inspo with accessible, everyday pieces (plus those items you never get a chance to wear.)

You might be thinking of water — a tidal wave, a rippling lake, a rhythmic river. However, all of the above qualities echo in the gorgeous spirals and formations of Antelope Canyon, found in Navajo Nation, Arizona.
If you haven’t noticed, harnesses are kind of having a moment. They’re not just for rock climbing and horse-back riding anymore — they’ve been reincarnated as alluring accessories for intimates. Strappy and structured, yet delicate and detail-oriented, the trend harness is a little garment with a lot of personality.
However, the lingerie trend harness can often make a look feel really “tough” or just very suggestive very quickly. Since its roots are in bondage wear and BDSM, a lot of the harnesses hitting the fashion world have been made of tough materials like leather, with thicker straps, heavy geometry, and suggestive shapes. I love that about harnesses, but as they make the transition from innerwear to outerwear, I would love to see softer interpretations as well — harness pieces that add femininity to a look, while still keeping that power balance between softness and hardness in play.

This week’s dreamy wonder of the world is not a specific location we could wander around on our next vacation, but I’d certainly love to if I could. Modest rocks on the outside and glimmering caverns on the inside, geodes are truly hidden gems. I can’t help but wish I could shrink down to the size of a pebble and explore the complex worlds of geodes from the inside like Ms. Frizzle from “The Magic Schoolbus.”
Sometimes, when I’m trying to find the dreamiest places on earth to feature here, my astonishment is a bit more reserved and polite. You know — in that way where you’re like “wow, I can’t believe this place exists on earth,” but it’s not entirely a sublime experience and you’re also like “well, of course it would.” Like, “this place is amazing, but not stretching any realms of possibility — it’s just really beautiful.”
That is so not the case here. There is nothing reserved about the pinkness of the Pink Lake. It isn’t politely pink. It isn’t “pink when you fiddle with the hue/saturation levels.” It is real, honest to goodness, cotton candy pink — “naturally fuschia,” which is a strange and beautiful phrase. It literally seems like a figment (pigment?) of the imagination, but there is a “pink lake” on this green earth, and the water is legitimately this Barbie-Dream-House, cupcake-icing, nauseatingly cute shade of pink.

This week’s moodboard is an editorial collage, inspired by high fashion photography. I wanted to juxtapose lo-fi aesthetics with the spirit of romantic receptivity. This mood is not about who you are or how you want to be perceived, but a more inward reflective sense of who you want to be.
