There’s endless inspiration in this extraordinary fiber art by Grace Kubilius. I’m completely blown away. See more beautiful work on her portfolio.
If I had the closet of my dreams I’d be wearing these beautiful things on a dinner date with David to celebrate my birthday this Friday. I’m excited about turning 28 (one year closer to 30, which for some reason I’m really looking forward to) even if the weather is likely to be gloomy and wet. Time spent with David is my biggest wish of all. There’s something very special about having someone else plan a celebration for you, big or small, and I quite like the idea of being surprised for once. I feel so loved.
The tiniest bit of proof that the house is coming along. Also, shorts weather is magical.
I first discovered Complex Geometries in college and it quickly became my favorite brand. The aesthetic maintains that balance of edgy and delicate I feel suits me so well–a considerable amount of black and asymmetrical shapes to be worn in multiple ways, dressed up or down. Every season I’m impressed by the updated silhouettes and dramatic proportions, and lately some really incredible and unexpected colors, prints, and materials have been added to the mix. It’s been great to see the brand evolve. These SS15 pieces arriving in store certainly don’t disappoint. That oxblood tunic is a stray from my usual black, grey, or white but man is it striking.
Yesterday we took advantage of the beautiful sunshine by going down to the lake to read. Relaxing outdoors with David is always a highlight of my week. There were so many friendly people out and about and it was a delight to luxuriate in the day collectively. I’m hoping for more moments like this soon. Next time, a picnic is definitely in order.
// I’ve been wearing this oversized denim jacket so much. It looks good with everything and makes picking out what to wear simple. I can’t wait to throw it on with my favorite dresses during the summer. Bare legs, I miss you.
// Many tacos were consumed last week. This breakfast variety was a favorite. I love meals I can whip up using whatever’s in the fridge. Salads and omelets have been on heavy rotation as well for the same reason.
// I’m working my way through The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber. I love the design, the detail of the gilded pages (which I didn’t get in the shot). The premise–pastor sharing the gospel with beings on another planet, creepy/mysterious corporation establishing a colony, life on earth increasingly disastrous, etc–is certainly intriguing and I’m very curious to find out how it ends.
