I’ve been hanging around the Ocho Placas Tattoo Company lately. Chris is getting his sleeve finished by the incredible Javier Betancourt (who tattooed either Tegan or Sara from the singing duo, by the way) and I’ve been tagging along with him on his appointments. When I’m not on my phone while sitting in on these two-to-three-hour-long sessions, I get a chance to snap some photos, read Javier’s tattoo books (which are pretty much just picture books with beautiful traditional American-style sketches), and look around at all the cool little decorations he’s put up in his work room.
I’ve been practically living in this outfit for the past few days. Nisolo’s Ecuador Huarache Sandal in Burnt Sienna is my footwear of choice for the summer. They’re beautiful, handmade, and easy to break in. The Everlane linen tee dress in heather grey keeps me cool and is effortless (dresses are an easy pick–throw one on, and you’re done).
