Glitter on my hearts

This may come to as a surprise, but I am really not a DIY person. I’m a DIY-admirer and I’ll do a DIY if I need to, but I’ve never liked working with my hands. I took a sewing class once and hated it. I never liked baking, either. Maybe it has something to do with having eczema all my life and my hands getting irritated by touch. I think that’s why I’ve naturally gravitated toward photography, graphic design, blogging, and fashion styling instead of more hands-on crafts. With that being said, I consider it a major achievement that¬†I made this necklace myself! It took every ounce of patience I had and I’m good for a few more months before I delve into another DIY. ūüėČ

I am head over heels in love with the print and fit of this Dusen Dusen jumpsuit. I wore it in the bio photo for my mom and my HGTV.com article. I feel like it would be flattering on virtually any body type.

I snagged¬†these Bass x Rachel Antonoff oxfords¬†from Crossroads. I fell in love with the girly¬†glitter hearts, but have had them for months without wearing them because I couldn’t find anything that matched. Funny that the first thing I found that “matched” (I use the term loosely) was this patterned jumpsuit. What can I say, I love a good pattern-on-pattern.

Nature Looks Good on You

Nature Looks Good on You

Well, THIS post is a long time in coming! At the beginning of April, my mom and I launched a tee for Drifter Organics. You guys have been KILLING it with the styling (follow us on @drifterorganics to see the regrams of our favorite looks).

With the first day of summer tomorrow,¬†it’s t-shirt weather and I thought I’d share how I styled our Nature Looks Good on You¬†tee on me. I think the tee looks amazing¬†knotted off or tucked into a¬†pair of high-waisted jeans, but I forced myself to be creative and gave myself the challenge of NOT styling the shirt with jeans. I found these culottes at Anthropologie on sale for $9.99 (not sure what the original price was), but get this, folks: They were AN ADDITIONAL 25% OFF, so I think the total came to $7-something. UNHEARD OF at Anthropologie.

I really love the look of dressing up a tee, so here’s how I would wear a t-shirt to a fancier occasion, like out to dinner¬†or a networking event. “Nature Looks Good on You” is our tagline over at Drifter Organics and it’s become a mantra so close to my heart that it influences every decision I make. I wrote about what “Nature Looks Good on You”¬†means here.

California Standing Still

California Standing Still

For the past few years, California has been in a serious drought. Two years ago, I think we got maybe five days of rain total? Not good. It mainly only rains in the winter and the amount of rain we get in the winter sets us up for the entire year to come. This past winter, we got a lot of rain‚ÄĒprobably more than we’ve gotten these past three years combined! When spring came along, legions (or myriads) of wildflowers bloomed in Southern California.¬†California (and the rest of the world) stood still, in awe of the miraculous “super bloom” (you could even see it from space!). Wildflowers in Northern California by my home bloomed, too, but not as multitudinous as in Southern California. Thousands flocked to Southern California locations to see the rare bloom¬†in person and capture it¬†with¬†their cameras.

Being that¬†these flowers have been dormant for years and I didn’t¬†know when the next super bloom would occur, I took a weekend trip to Southern California to visit the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve.

I photographed¬†my long-time Internet (now turned in real life) friend, Melissa. She was one of my OG blog followers‚ÄĒbefore Instagram was even a thing, can you believe it? It was SO fun not only meeting her, but collaborating on¬†something creative. Melissa is an English teacher who has an amazing aesthetic and a jewelry business of her own.
