This cami dress/top is my new favorite thing to wear for warm nights out-
I'll always find an excuse to wear something maxi, especially if it's in a soft color and a flow shape. Is it a dress? Is it a top? It's both!

Decided to go with chandeliers on my ears and a lantern to hold the essentials.

Gold Geist


Bing Bang NYC nameplate 
Lulu Frost earrings 
Thrifted tee

I'm a Geist- or, as the German word translates; a spirit beyond just a ghost or life force, but a floating, infinite sort of intellect. My dad took back my grandmother's maiden name when he was in college because he felt like he ought to live his life according to this word we don't quite have a perfect translation for in English, but universally sort of get.

I stopped by the Bing Bang NYC studios in Chinatown last year and placed a special custom order, the result of which you see here.
The brand was founded by Anna Sheffield, who is more prominently known for her namesake like of beautiful fine jewelry. Her designs are known for being unapologetically juxtaposed- daring and still sentimentally elegant. Bing Bang is a perfect, free-spirited little sister brand to Sheffield's namesake line of custom engagement jewelry and irreplaceable ultra-fine pieces 'cause they're meant for everyday, but they carry the same uncompromising reach for quality in fine jewelry.

Bing Bang's pieces are meant to be worn and knocked around every day. They're finished by hand, plated by hand, and they all have whispers of Sheffields' thinking: prongs are sharp, pearls and jewels are small and elegant, but always sourced and cut as if to only exist as wearable sparks. This here nameplate I'm wearing has quickly become one of my favorite pieces- not because it's my name (although I'm biased), but because it miraculously became a wearable statement: this is me. There's even a period made of a tiny garnet.

Standing in the sun apparently makes me wanna put my arms up in the air??
Speaking of standing in the sun- I just had my 26th birthday, and after realizing last year that I had been playing fast-and-loose with my sunscreen application, I have started collecting different sunscreen compacts and travel tubes of SPF to throw in my purse whenever I leave the apartment. The one I've used to death and need to reorder is this one by Vant 36.5, which I nabbed on Amazon while shopping for some kinda nonsense like rubber stoppers for doors and a six-pack of sponges. It has a wonderfully matte finish and it smells faintly of baby powder- PLUS it's super cute!!!! If there are any particular steps I have become crazy about when it comes to my skincare routine, it's a) Not touching my face with my hands unless I have washed them, and b) wearing sunscreen when I'm outside. These compacts have become essential so that I don't have to sweat either of these for sure.

Oh yeah- and! I found this Proenza Schouler tee at Beacon's Closet a few weeks back, and by 'back' I also mean I haven't worn it the correct way around since I nabbed it. The ribbon ties are a fabulous and cheeky detail when worn in the back, but I love them in the front, creating a little vent while worn with high-waisted jeans or pants.

I think it's safe to say I wear a duster at least 2-3 times a week. Whether it's a cardigan, or an open dress like this one. I dunno, I guess it just adds opportunity for play and a little drama when I walk down the street and a gust of wind picks up, or when I take a seat on the train and wrap it around me.
The tunic here PLUS the ribbon ties on the dress/duster gave everything here a little pirate-y flair, which I'm ok with.
