...You say you want a revolution

I know it seems like just yesterday that I was planning my outfits for spring break in the dominican republic. But I am blessed enough to be heading out on another adventure in a ittle less than two months, so it's time to get packing!
My friend is writing a travel article on how to visit Cairo post revolution. From there we'll be sailing on down the nile and checking out the pyramids. Since I don't have to start work until July, I'm trying to figure out where to hang my card after visiting Egypt. Snorkling off the Sinai peninsula? Exploring the ruins of Petra in Jordan? Only time will tell!

While my itinerary is still a work in process, my vision for my suitcase is already shaping up.

dusty pink t shirts tucked into blousy off-white linen plants, fedora, ray ban aviators, silky tunics over white bermuda shorts, long flowy skirts, w thin drapy tees tucked in
white tank tops with gauzy wraps to cover shoulders, leather sandals, wrists and fingers draping in jewelery picked up in souks along the way...

pictures to come soon ...maybe

J Crew has a tumbler?

not entirely sure why it has taken me this long to find this on the jcrew website, or how it hasn't been all over my favorite style blogs. I know that at times the J Crew worship can seem overhyped, but I enjoy wearing their clothes, and the website is jam packed with styling ideas. Needless to say I am anxiously awaiting to see the shape that their blog takes.

Defining Style

I struggle with defining my style. I see admire elements in all of the different tribes, and my favorite is constantly in flux
flipping through the photos that I've saved, I've come to realize that my style could most closely be described as the nexus of Grace Kelley and the Grateful Dead.

Rules for My Unborn Daughter...

Wear Sunscreen.

But also enjoy the feeling of sun on your face in the late afternoon. Enjoy the rosy glow of your cheeks in the evening. Enjoy the sight of your nose peeling.


I borrowed my friend's longboard, and ever since I've been bombing around the little hills around my apartment. I'm become obsessed- the sun on my shoulders, wind in my hair, and my hands dirty with the powder of the black asphalt.

My goal is to become confident as a longboarder so that this time next year I'll be skating down the west side highway.
