Xiao Wen Ju and Arlenis Sosa by Michael O'Neal for Vogue

These photos are a few months old at this point, but I'm still so into this mini Instagram photoshoot of adorable cuties Xiao Wen and Arlenis. Hilary Rhoda not so much...


Ready for winter and dreaming of spring with my two new pairs of shoes. Both by Rachel Comey.

Photos by Joanna Han for Kinfolk

A few weeks ago, Joanna and Paul hosted a small pizza party potluck. We each brought a few ingredients and together made several very delicious pizzas. Even Toby got in on the action!

Incredibly inspired by the work of Amy Revier. Beautiful handwoven textiles stitched into one of a kind pieces.

More photos from Kyoto.
Slowly but surely making my way through all my trip photos. The thing about shooting only film is footing the $100 bill for having it all developed and scanned when you get back. I do love the anticipation though, a little bit of a wait can be very rewarding.

Two looks that caught my eye recently. Understated and unisex.


Beautiful greenery around Kyoto.

I love the look of a bare wooden chair but aesthetics aside, they can be pretty uncomfy.
I made the washed out pastel seat cushion last year, and yesterday I finished the cranberry one to switch out for fall.

MUJI Moisturizing Milk, All-In-One Essence, Charcoal Face Soap, and Face Brush

My beauty routine is simple- really simple. I rinse my face with warm water twice a day, exfoliate with a washcloth in the shower, and moisturize with Gold Bond Healing with Aloe. I'm not even sure if it's supposed to be used on the face, but it's the only lotion I've ever used that hasn't made me break out in hives or pimples. If I'm going out maybe I'll wear lipstick or fill in my eyebrows, but in terms of an everyday look, that's it. And for the past three years, unless I go HAM on pizza and ice cream too many nights in a row, my skin is generally pretty blemish-free.

But lately, I've been feeling like my skin could be better and while traveling last month my skin was so traumatized from the heat, humidity, and changes in water quality that I picked up a few things for my skin at MUJI (I'm a sucker for packaging). I've only been using the soap and moisturizers for a few days now but so far my face is happy and the moisturizing milk gives my skin a nice dewy look.

APC sweater / thrifted shirt / Acne skirt / Dieppa Restrepo loafers

Reevaluating the functionality of my current wardrobe.

I realized the other day while getting ready to walk Toby in last weekend's downpour that none of the coats or jackets I own are waterproof and only two have hoods. Not sure how that's possible having grown up and lived in the Pacific Northwest for all twenty years of my life, but I guess in my pre-dog days I never had to spent two hours a day outside regardless of the weather. So now, as my wardrobe needs change and I search for a new coat that isn't ugly but will still keep me dry and warm, I'm also working on another edit of my closet to remove the unnecessary and improve upon its functionality. If you're in the market for any cool new duds, keep an eye on my eBay listings in the next week or two.

Really into this sensual power bitch styling by Olivier Rizzo.
Love seeing Elise too. I remember making crappy graphics for an Elise Crombez Livejournal community when I was 12 or 13 haha.
