Birthday Post

birthdaypost

One particularly notable occurrence since my last birthday, as you know, is that I have my own studio- which has essentially banished all my pencil skirts and heels to live full-time in my closet while I live in hard working separates: classics, with a twist.

This birthday suit is made of a J. Crew madras blazer bought years and years ago (last seen here), a very very old tee from my mom that says “My Art Belongs to Dada”, a new pair of Levi’s high waisted jeans, my regular All Stars, and an updated pair of Ray Ban Aviators (I got a new mirrored blue tint, hey!).

You might want to peek at my previous birthday posts. Here is 25, and here is 24. Cheers!!

Scottish Rites

In celebration of recent events, my nuclear family is jetting to Scotland for the next week (and London for a few days). It wouldn’t surprise you to learn that before almost every trip, I draw out a packing list that looks something like this. Doing so helps me focus my vacation vision, which inevitably has turned into an homage to my ultimate semi-sportif hip-hop lady-playa who digs the rolling hills – a flat brim hat, some Adidas spandex, an incognito trench, etc.

I’ll be carrying on my dad’s old backpack, a Lands End Canvas fisherman sweater, the St. James tee, some American Apparel and J.Crew tees, my London Fog trench, my Urban Outfitters jean jacket, Cheap Monday and Zara jeans, Adidas running spandex, a Gap henley, a Lands End Canvas polka-dot button up “borrowed” from mom, my men’s department J.Crew shirt, new Converse All Stars, Bass boots, Target socks, the Avs, the Cat Eyes, and SEE glasses, a DC baseball cap from Jonas’s baseball team, mom’s scarves, books, books, books, (screw e-readers), Moleskines.

The Media Blitz Continues

When it rains it pours, I guess? In addition to a pretty amazing Refinery 29 feature, the great folks over at Ready Set DC¬†thought I’d make a willing and eager subject – they were right – for an interview, a photoshoot, AND a video.

Thanks to the amazing folks (and new friends) who photographed, videoed, and wrote both pieces – you made me look good, and for that I am eternally grateful.

Switch Up Sunday

No seriously, I wear a version of this outfit all the time; this one was made of a J.Crew tuxedo shirt, Banana Republic white jeans, Chuck Taylors, the J.Crew belt I “borrowed” from my mom, and the Ray Ban Avs.

Oh, and I just bought what was on my list (tights) with the steely control of the good financial educator I used to be. Ha.
