Rad Gal, Theresa Crim

Monday, August 12, 2013

Rad Gals is a new series started by Craft & Culture featuring powerful creative women with a  flair for style all their own. The first Rad Gal featured is Theresa Crim, a curator who runs a multi use gallery space in Seattle called Land Management. Shot in their own homes, wearing Craft & Culture clothing and accessories, Rad Gals is one of my new favorites. Also if you haven't visited Craft & Culture be sure to check out their online shop!

I'm Still Here...

Monday, August 5, 2013

I'm still here... I'm just four months pregnant-  so I took a bit of an unintentional break from this blog. I was sick most of the first trimester and wasn't up for much of anything other than feeling sorry for myself, which caused us to push our annual (northern hemisphere) summer vacation up a whole lot. So instead of visiting family in the States in mid July we left the first week of June and we've been back in Virginia ever since. It's been so great to have all the extra help with Wills and now that I'm feeling like my old self again I'll be back around here more often. Here I am- 18 weeks pregnant.

The Wedding of Karin + Craig

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Four weeks ago I went to the wedding of my dear friends Karin and Craig. It was one of those amazing weddings filled with so much love and thoughtfulness that everybody was grinning from ear to ear. The flowers were arranged by the talented Marissa of Opus Studio, and the photography was by the equally talented duo, Love Made Visible.

Sick Of Being Sick & A Winner

Friday, May 10, 2013

I don't want to be a downer right before the weekend and all but man this week has been hard. Everyone in my little family is sick- the really not good kind of sick like the throw ups and the shakes and the "oh my god when will this end" kind of sick. Combine that with a major case of the home sickness blues and we're really struggling over here. Hope you're fairing a bit better than we are. Have a happy weekend and hopefully I'll be back to my old self next week! Oh yeah- and congratulations Rachel F- you are the winner of the Na Nin Vintage giveaway!

Babe New York

Friday, May 3, 2013

One of my longer term goals is to start buying clothing of higher quality- pieces that will cost me more but will last me much longer.  (I have a terrible Forever 21 habit- don't judge!) Buying the basics is a good place to start. Babe New York is a new line that has recently launched in New York City. They provide a mix of basics- wardrobe foundations that are beautifully designed and locally made in NYC. Currently you can find them at Steven Alan and Frances May or you can buy direct from their new shop

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

I saw that this cute little line was one of Miss Moss' new sponsors. If you're in the market for a new bag- Arc Of A Diver might be just the ticket.

My sister in law recently snapped these pictures while we were getting coffee the other day. Wills stole my coffee cup and took a sip which was pretty adorable- mostly because of his reaction. He was so pleased with himself (don't worry, there was only a few drops left- mostly foam). I can't believe I'm the mother of an almost one and a half year old. How did that happen?

Outfit Inspiration

Monday, April 22, 2013

What I'd wear everyday this Fall if I could. Cooler days crept in last week with lots and lots of rain and clouds but this week- all sunshine and warm weather! That's the thing about Fall around here, it can be pretty inconsistent. But I don't mind as long as the sun keeps shining!

Juliette Hogan Spring/Summer Collection

Friday, April 19, 2013

Designer, Juliette Hogan, hosted a breakfast to launch her Spring/Summer Collection. The breakfast was hosted in her own work room and the models sat around chatting and wearing the designs, dressed perfectly against the white background. Fashion and breakfast, it's kind of a no brainer.

Northern Hem / Southern Hem

I'm starting a new series called "Northern Hem, Southern Hem" because every time the seasons change my mind has a complete disconnect. "Fall in April? That can't be right." Growing up and living in the Northern Hemisphere (Virginia to be exact) for my entire life, April is firmly planted in my mind as Spring, just as July is Summer. But since moving to South Africa four years ago and thus the Southern Hemisphere, my mind hasn't quite been able to make the mental switch- especially when talking to friends and family back home and seeing tons of warm weather related posts all over the internet. Anyway this is a very long winded explanation of the new series. Here's the first edition. On the left you have your Northern Hemisphere shoe- perfect for Spring and a steal at only $38! (it also comes in this other great color) And on the right you have your Southern Hemisphere shoe- perfect for Fall. I have these shoes on the right and I love them! Both shoes are from Need Supply.

-This Academy Jewelry look book and this Giant Lion look book caught my eye- both of my eyes in fact. 
-And remember if you are in Cape Town, don't forget to buy your Kinfolk ticket(s) for April's workshop and dinner!
