Profile Feature on LoCro Blog!


Hello! My new designer pal Loren Crosier started a really wonderful series on her blog featuring photographs and interviews with creative people. I am very flattered to be included and it was fun getting lunch and taking photographs with Lo! Here are a few of my favorite pics, but go see the rest and read my interview here!


You probably notice that things look a little bit different around here ;) I am working on a bit of a facelift for my site - nothing too major. You will see quite a few of the photographs from Lo around the new site :) I am going to post about my changes and branding update tomorrow before Designer Vaca!

Style Monday: Palm Springs Dream Outfit

Exciting news! I snagged a last minute spot at Designer Vaca - a design conference/retreat down in Palm Springs! I had signed up for the waitlist ages ago, and then just this Friday a few people dropped out and I was able to sneak right in! Luckily my pal Chelsey Dyer had space in her room, and I was able to get a flight using my United miles - making it easy and affordable to make a trip last minute! 

Today I looked at the weather for while I am in Palm Springs and nearly fainted. It is slated to be 103° !!  I am such a wimp when it comes to hot weather - San Francisco is pretty much always 65° and so when it gets any hotter than that my body puts up a fight. Hopefully the rooms/hotel will be nice and air-conditioned and I will just spend the rest of the time in the pool. 

I really don't have a lot of warm-weather clothes, though probably enough for a quick 3 days trip. I decided to pull together this little dream outfit from the drawings I created in collaboration with Twice. I would love to own a nice thin white cotton top, and some cute graphic high-waisted stripe shorts. Also those sandals are so amazing, wish I had a pair! 

Looking forward to this trip! (Though also very nervous). 

Happy Monday!

Weekend Links: Vintage Flight Attendant Outfits, Emma Watson, and Losing your Cool

Hello! I have recently been experiencing a lot of link love, and have realized that it is such a great way to foster community in the blogging world as well as motivate me to read more. I have to admit that even though I depend on others to read my own blog - I am horrible at keeping up with others! I have been trying to change that though, and having this weekend links column every other week should hopefully keep me on my toes ;) So here we go!
