Camera Ready

Check out my little friend Mikayla. She is TOO MUCH. Such a funny picture, I just had to share. She was so affectionate that day. I love the kids!

Must-Have Monday: Carolina Benoit Rope Blouse

With summer around the corner, stocking up early on easy, breezy staples in crisp white is a must. Nothing is more effortlessly elegant than classic white on sunny days. This week’s favorite is Carolina Benoit’s Rope Blouse. It can be tied two different ways to either get a higher or lower neckline or even layered on top of another piece. I personally love a good plunging v-neck with some high-waisted shorts/jeans.

Must-Have Monday: Cat Eye Sunglasses

There’s nothing like a good pair of tortoise shell cat eye sunnies. Paired with something bold like a fiery red lip or a simple all black outfit to add a little oomph, you can’t go wrong. You just can’t.

Cat Eye Sunglasses

Our sewbie.com must-have pick is of the vintage variety from our one and only Hello Again Vintage. It’s a throwback tortoise rendition of just the right amount of oversized-ness. Because although Monday is the gloomiest among seven days, we’ll still stunt in our cat eyes to hide the tears.

Journal Fetish

Blank books, journals, sketchbooks, notebooks, whatever you want to call them… I want them. ALL. It’s a little bit of an obsession really. I swear it started in the 5th grade when the teacher announced we’d be making our own books. We each started out with a clean, blank book and we could put whatever our hearts desired in it. Some wrote stories. Others drew pictures. And for some reason, I couldn’t figure out what the hell I wanted to put in my book. But I was as excited as ever, despite sitting there staring at empty pages for hours. It didn’t occur to me then but now I realize the reason why I love journals so much is because they’re clean slates waiting for beautiful things to happen. I get giddy at the thought of its endless possibilities and the potential great ideas it will house. There’s a whole row on my bookcase of blank books that can attest to this.

My Sewbie business partner, Neil, put me up on the Moleskine book for Evernote after he yelled at me for not using Evernote often enough and I explained that I preferred writing my notes in an actual, physical book. Ta-da! The answer? The Evernote Smart Notebook. It satisfies my journal obsession and his techie tendencies. Proof that both sides of the brain can work together in harmony.
