textures + textiles

Print

I always seem to be drawn to textures and textiles when ever I am looking for inspiration. The gals at the Block Shop { image two } are creating beautiful block dyed scarves and that lace in the first, used in Marissa Webbs Spring/Summer ’13 collection, is so delicately beautiful. It’s hand spun and hand woven from genuine natural Indian cotton. In addition to hand weaving the base fabric, fabric artisans hand embroider and hand cut eyelets – perfect! Happy Sunday xx

statement sweater: all is fair

There’s a new cool kid in town. Fair Isle sweaters may have been an ‘ugly Christmas sweater‘ thing of the past but now, when done right, are super comfy, cozy, and cute for the cooler season. Bundle up, it’s getting chilly out there!!

fall style: military jackets

I am crushing big time on this trend and seeing it everywhere! Military style jackets just seem to go with any look; from a white tee to a party dress! How would you wear it?? xx

nude & neon

Can’t decide between neutrals and brights? I say, go with both!

What started out as a gloomy, rainy afternoon, turned into a fairly nice night. Just back from a great run and I’m ready to settle in for a relaxing evening.

We’re halfway done the week already! Any exciting weekend plans? Almost there…

i heart fonts

It’s a new year, a new semester, and time for a new class! I have decided to stray from the interior design program and try something new! It may come as no surprise that I have a crush on all things font, image, layout and graphic design related in general. Sooooo it made perfect sense that the class I take be Layout & Typography I.

After the first class tonight I think I made the right choice. It’s definitely up my alley and it will also be beneficial for my blogging. Annnddd a weekly assignment involves searching Pinterest for favorite images… you had me at Pinterest! Looking forward to falling in love with new fonts ; )
