2014. overall winner. 
maison scotch blouse. destructed overalls by kensie jeans. swedish hasbeens super high clogs.
oh my goodness. it’s been forever since i shared an outfit post. sunshine has finally returned, and i took the opportunity to wear overalls. yes, overalls! i wore overalls constantly as a teenager with roxy tees and big sweatshirts. i thrifted a couple pairs last year but they never fit properly (blame my long torso and legs). after seeing indiana in her cute overalls, i caved and bought new, full-price overalls. the verdict? i love them.
if you’re interested in overalls, mine are by kensie. they’re not maternity overalls; i sized up for a looser fit. plus they’re a little stretchy. i’m 5’9” so they’re a tad bit short, but they look fine with a heel. i also like that the straps are long enough for tall girls.
like most men, my husband is bewildered by overalls. oh well. he already put a ring on it.

2013. the same. maison scotch dress. MIA boots. pendleton canyonville tote.woohoo! we’re married! michael and i tied the knot during columbus day weekend in the presence of our family and closest friends. a common question couples receive after a wedding is: how does it feel? i think it feels the same but a little sweeter and definitely a lot calmer.after the wedding, i came down with a cold and then got a stomach bug. on friday i felt the most terrible and feverish i’ve been in a loooooong time. but now i’m on the mend, and i’ll share stories from our special day soon. meanwhile i’m happy to get back in the routine of teaching, drawing, and wearing something other than pajamas.the look | similar dress | similar boots | similar bag

after the wedding, i came down with a cold and then got a stomach bug. on friday i felt the most terrible and feverish i’ve been in a loooooong time. but now i’m on the mend, and i’ll share stories from our special day soon. meanwhile i’m happy to get back in the routine of teaching, drawing, and wearing something other than pajamas.

2013. rule of thirds.
maison scotch dress. thrifted sash. leather tote c/o cuyana. lotte clogs by loeffler randall.
in photography, the rule of thirds helps you compose a picture. in clothing, the rule of thirds helps me get dressed in the morning— i pick two or three things that go together and run, walk, play, and shop with them.
my friends at cuyana sent me this sweet monogrammed tote, and i adore it. it’s pale pink leather and embellished with the golden letters LPS (my future mrs. initials). the cuyana philosphy is fewer, better— collect less things you like and more things you love. that’s one rule that might be better than the rule of thirds.

2013. not so neutral. maison scotch sweater. splendid sweatshirt. verdugo leggings by paige. sidewalk wedges by madewell.usually when i engage in “tone dressing”, i wear blue from head to toe because blue is my favorite color. on sunday i broke out my best beiges and they all happened to match.michael calls this sweater “that sweater” i.e. he isn’t a big fan of it. sometimes i wish he would refer to our candy bowl as “those candies”— consequently i could have them to myself. until then, at least this sweater that sweater is mine for keeps.the look | sweater | similar sweatshirt | similar jeans | similar shoes
