SUMMER WISHLIST

summer wishlist June is one of my very favorite months. Everything smells amazing. (I mean, lilacs and russian olive trees?? Ooh, I say.) The skies are extra dreamy. And almost every activity takes place outside. Preferably with cold beverages...

Here are just a few things from my summertime wishlist. Cuz what better way to celebrate warmer temps than with a watermelon tank, Warby aviators, and a too cold to hold ban.do drink sleeve?? Plus an absolutely gorgeous photo by Max Wanger that I'm hoping will help me hang onto this summer feeling all year round...

IN LOVE: ALT SUMMIT ATTIRE

Guys. Alt Summit SLC is officially next month... eep! It'll be my first time going to this incredibly rad conference. Right now I'm equal parts excited / nervous / in complete disbelief I'm actually going. Of course, one of my concerns is what to wear... thank gawd there's a free Alt class next week that covers this very topic (thank you times a million, Bing!). Silly? Maybe. Necessary? Hells to the yes. Until then, here's the Alt wardrobe wishlist I've been building in my head... and on pinterest.

Cute flats, sweaters, fancy pants... what do ya think? Who else is going to Alt? I'd love to hear from you! What are you guys wearing??

 

1. Tipsy Kate Spade flats | 2. J.Crew bobbled sweater | 3. mini ban.do hearts | 4. Madewell tote | 5. boyfriend blazer | 6. ASOS collar necklace | 7. ASOS skinny crop pant

ART MEETS FASHION

Hello from New Mexico, friends! Boy do I have a great guest blogger for you today. She will totes become one of your favsies... pinky swear. Hi Artsosh kiddos! I'm Shaunna from A Style Moment and I'm delighted to fill in over here while Miss Erin is away. I'm pretty awkward when it comes to discussing art and my palette is not nearly as developed as Erin's. I'm the girl at an art show that stands and stares at one piece for forever (trying to memorize it's beauty) and all I can seem to muster out is "beautiful." Ok, lame. Use your grown up words. But I just can't. Sometimes, the inspiration is so intense that it generates the immediate need to create, usually in the form of fashion or style. I may not be able to muster out the exact words, but you bet your little bottom that I can create a fabulous outfit that speaks the words for me. When I came across this piece by Mia Christopher, it almost seemed alive! I wanted to feel it (created with acrylic) and see it up close in living color. Does it make you feel that way?

Without further ado, feast your eyes on Art Meets Fashion, featuring the artwork of Mia Christopher.
