I met Jenny Strange at West Coast Craft last month. Her booth was diagonally across from my mom and my Drifter Organics booth and she is the absolute sweetest. Her real (married) last name is “Strange” which is pretty cool, too. I always wanted to have a cool last name. I suppose “Hoo” is catchy, although it would have been nice if it was spelled “Who” or more streamline and edgy like “Hu.” I have a friend with the last name “Cherry” and I think it takes the cake as the best last name ever.

These pants and shoes are from Vreela, which is a new online womanswear boutique based in San Francisco. I found them through my friend, Logan, who modeled for the inaugural lookbook. Madison, the owner, does a killer job at curating the best emerging independent designers. I love how each piece in her shop is beautifully and ethically constructed—an art form rather than a fashion trend.

Glitter on my hearts

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. 😉

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 look 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.
