Amazon Fashion has asked me to put together a board highlighting some of my favorites. Lately I have been living in grey skinny ankle jeans and t-shirts or plaids, sometimes I’m even swapping the jeans out for shorts (ahhhh San Diego, you’re a crazy city). On my list for finding soon is a comfy pair of sneakers (I bought a pair of bensimons second hand to try out – not bad!) and possibly a new pair of sunglasses (though still loving these guys a lot). The mommy uniform and I are getting along really well lately. I have even parted with three of my used-to-be-favorite wool suits just recently and while it was a sad adieu, it was overdue given the working-from-a-coffeeshop days that fill most of my weeks. I guess make that years, now. I remember freshly graduating school and feeling that bit of power and strength that comes from a tailored suit. I can’t forget that feeling! It’s a nice feeling. I’ve kept a jacket or two for when I’m needing an umph. Until then, bring on the comfy jeans.
It’s hard to believe since we’ve only had about 10 days of winter but the weather feels like it’s already changing seasons here in San Diego. While I’m not ready to give up cool for warm, I do love what seems to attract itself SO much to this next season: baby showers, weddings, birthdays, wine tasting… that’s my kind of celebrating. A little inspiration today for all of that.
Kevin has been making quite a few pieces for the master bedroom remodel. He’s been interested in carpentry for a while, but in the last couple of years welding has become a major hobby.
He gifted a beautiful set of three planters for our outdoor table as one of his very first projects:
Our outdoor coffee table is a mixture of his two favorites: reclaimed wood and steel.
When I couldn’t find stocking hooks that would fit our handmade mantel, he used his welding tools to make a bent flat iron set that was perfect.
I’m not going to lie, it’s one of my favorite passions of his :). His creativity abounds and his artistic side is always coming up with new ways to bring the old back to life or unusual solutions to common household problems (like welding a button to fix a fridge latch or designing an extra long iron bracket to hold up a speaker).
I’ll share some of his bedroom & bathroom remodel creations soon!
