Color

rule breakin'.

Recent outfits... and white jeans after Labor Day! It has been a quick and colorful summer! Many things I did not get to wear. My daily Tim Gunn calendar says I should get rid of the summer clothes I didn't wear... hmmm I will at least consider a few things Tim Happy

Also, holy hair growth! Chopping my hair has given it new life and it has been growing like a weed! Had to chop again yesterday.

throwback thursday.

Since it's Thursday, I thought I would share some vintage items I've worn this past week: blue skirt, in heavy rotation at the moment, amazing vintage geometric blouse borrowed from my sweet gal pal Allison, and The Cure tee shirt I've had since 7th grade... Laugh

tattoo style.

I got my first ever tattoo last week in Dallas, TX. It is something I've thought about for 20 years... I wrote about it, shared about it, and suddenly it was the right time for this rite of passage. I knew I wanted a retro, round, very vibrant and colorful design to match my aesthetic... this is a piece of art that I will wear forever and it had to be right on! I traveled to see friends and work with an artist with 20 years of experience that I trusted. It hurt like hell, and the process was more complicated than I realized, but I'm so happy with the result!

While I pulled from lots of things, this design came the closest to articulating what I wanted:

color girl.

In the spirit of expanding on the rainbow theme, another reason I love it so is because I love color.

Over the past few years my appreciation of color, style and aesthetics, and sharing this with the world through what I wear has blossomed, and it has become something easy and enjoyable for me to do. I am a novice now, but I'm sure I'll get more polished - in the meantime, it's just fun! A few recent fall outfits:
