Finds from Tortoise General store a few weeks ago. Some day I'll buy an entire Hasami dinnerware set from there... *___*

One of my only complaints about living in LA is how difficult my skin is here. Dry desert weather plus the disgusting air quality downtown has transformed my previously minimal effort beauty routine into a high maintenance ordeal that only barely staves off clogged pores and breakouts. This clay and charcoal face soap combined with an exfoliating towel is helping a lot right now but I think I need to look into new moisturizers as well. Any recs for super sensitive dry skin?

Acne Studios Lash dress, Rachel Comey Faye sandals

Is it obvious that I only brought one pair of sandals to LA with me yet?

My go-to during those hot, hot days. This shirtdress is loose enough that it doesn't stick to me when I sweat plus it's made out of a crisp cotton poplin that's cool to the touch. Perfect for summer. Fabrication makes all the difference.

Fun shooting new spring things around TOC earlier this month. Since moving to LA I've found that I don't miss Portland all that much (considering) but if there's one space that I do miss terribly from time to time, it's Table of Contents. So lucky to get to go home even just for the weekend.

You should check out Shu and Joe's Freund von Freunden feature that my friend Joanna shot a few months ago too. It might not inspire the same happily homesick feeling for you, but it's worth a look just to marvel at their incredible library.
