base range

Nobody does basics and pretty little underthings quite like the European-based brand Base Range.  Not only is this line beautiful, but it’s also sustainable through use of organic fabrics.  Perfection!

color play vol. 12

This photo drew me in immediately because of the colors.  I loved the mix of tans, clay red, green and blue.  The vividness of these colors next to each other really make you feel like you’re present in the scene.

let there be wind

James and I shot this outfit over the weekend on a gorgeous spring day with LOTS of wind.  This makes for some lovely photos when the timing is just right.  If you time the wind wrong, you can look like this.  Given the perfect windy conditions on the day we shot this, I found myself occasionally shouting, “Let there be WIND” as if I were the force that is created that perfect breeze.  Now that I’ve set the scene for you, I think it’s a good time to start telling you a bit about this look.  You will recognize my beloved Marlena Tank from Elizabeth Suzann that I’ve been blogging/raving about for months.  I loved it with the casual v-neck in the front tucked into these printed pants.  Paired with my favorite leather slides, this look felt perfect for a spring day…which I described above.  Wow, see how I did that?  A perfect circle.  You’re welcome.

rachel sees snail shoes

Oh, I don’t think you could ever understand the joy I felt when I came across Rachel Sees Snail Shoes on Pinterest.  I soon clicked to a Refinery29 article featuring Rachel, the gorgeous gal behind these gorgeous shoes.  Rachel currently lives in Portland and not only sells her handmade goods online, but she also teaches workshops on how to make your own shoes.  It quickly became a fantasy of mine to travel to Portland (which James and I have talked about for quite some time) just to attend one of her classes.  I can’t wait for you guys to see the custom pair of shoes I ordered from Rachel when they arrive in May!

I don’t know what it is about these jeans, but I’ve had them for a long time and they always keep their shape.  I also accidentally machine washed and dried this gorgeous hand-wash-only and hang-to-dry blouse from Tienda Ho.   Somehow, it came through that debacle totally unscathed.  What I’m trying to say is that the two essential pieces (essential as in you typically need pants and a shirt to leave the house) in this outfit have been through a lot in their short lives and they are still standing tall and, for that, I am very thankful.

Aside from marveling at the strength and dignity of my favorite basics, I’m loving my new minimal black sandals from Madewell.  Don’t you hate when your summer sandals get that icky sweat mark from hot summer feet?  I love how these shoes feature a black sole so that wear and tear isn’t as visible.  They took a bit of time to break in, but I don’t think I’ll need any other pairs of sandals this summer.  My favorite Crescioni necklace that I got for my birthday was the perfect unexpected detail to finish this look.
