Hi.

I like to make things.

We all know what it's like to be chastised by the dentist.



How often do you floss?

You know. You must know. YOU MUST KNOW BY LOOKING IN MY MOUTH THAT I DO NOT FLOSS REGULARLY!!!

But what about being chastised by the eye doctor?


During my most recent eye exam, the doctor was quite appalled that I wear my two week contacts for more than two weeks. So after steeling myself against the shame and marching out of that office with my head held high and a glasses prescription in hand, I decided to invest in a new pair of frames from Warby Parker.

Because my eyes are bad, ya'll. Like I should have probably been naturally deselected.

I love my new glasses! They are the Finch frames in Violet Magnolia.


And how about this cute tunic?? This is the Green Bee Patterns Lela Top in the tunic length. It's the comfiest, breeziest thing to throw on over skinny jeans and boots. It's a little hard to tell from my version, but there are really interesting seam lines that lend themselves to some neato color blocking possibilities.


The fabric is a light, crisp cotton from The Fabric Store in LA. It somehow magically doesn't wrinkle after washing. I do not understand the magic. But I accept it. 

If you're local and haven't gone to The Fabric Store yet, GO THERE NOW. They are awesome. They're headquartered in New Zealand, and have such a great selection of beautiful fabrics at totally decent prices. [If you want more fabric eye candy, my friend Christine has a fabric laden post about some of the goods she found there.]


Tangent: When I was taking these pictures, Hootie was having a kitty crazy time in the yard. There is one picture when, right as the shutter went off, he decided to leap into the air. Just the beginning of his leap made it into the frame, but it's in one of the pictures in this post. Can you find him?

Also, if you like the necklace I'm wearing, it's made by rad local artist Cathy Callahan. Check out her website, she's awesome!
