Things I’ve Learned This Past Week: Fashion Edition

Jeans and a Henley are great for days when you’re so bored, you rearrange the entire shop.

There’s no need to fear stripes so long as you find the stripes that work for you.

You can actually go the whole day wearing a white shirt and not get a speck of dirt on it.  Also, you can dress up a basic outfit so long as you have the right accessories.  It’s all in the details.

If you want to go for the partial tuck look, tuck it and leave it.  Any artful rearranging is going to look like you’re trying and isn’t the whole point to make it look like you wake up just looking that cool?

Leather jackets go well with “camel” colored shirts. [I prefer the term "cognac" personally]

Midi-rings work great with kickboxing bruises.

Weekend Read


Britt and Tim - March 22 2014[my dad came and visited me at work]

Long time, no reading list.  How’ve you been?

Here’s a little list I’ve pulled together for you on this fine weekend.  I mean, Saturday is DEAR Day [drop everything and read].  Might as well act accordingly, right?  Right. :)

Have a happy weekend everyone!

Cheers.
Britt

Display Game

A fair portion of my time at work is spent rearranging displays, partly to keep the shop looking fresh, but mostly to accommodate items coming in and going out. [I'll admit, my favorite days are the ones in which someone buys a large piece of furniture because then I have more space to play with]

Thought I’d snap a few photos as I went about my never ending rearranging.  Enjoy.

Weekend Read: Parisienne

May or may not be having a thing with all things French/Parisian at the moment.  Of course this manifested itself in trolling the archives over at Garance Doré, because she’s French. (possibly a Parisienne as well?)

So enjoy this weekend read’s Franciscan theme, yeah?  D’accord.

Have a lovely weekend!

à bientô.

The Range

The range finally opened!  I went over the weekend to see the finished product.  My brother and his boss have been working towards this for ages, it seems.  Finally nice to see it all come together. {we also ran into friends of ours while there. it’s now the place to be}

Pancakes

My uncle likes to cook.  And he’s a damn good cook.  Pancakes and pies, though, are seem to be what he’s famous for. (the dude also makes a mean stew, awesome flan, homemade granola, his own marmalade, bread pudding… you get the drift?)

Anyways, he made pancakes and doesn’t follow any recipe, so I was busy scribbling notes I now have to go back and decipher.  But rest assured, they were some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had.  I also love how he uses the egg shells to measure his oil, because he doesn’t like having tons of dishes to clean up afterwards. (I feel ya, man.)

Wine Country

Most of my trip may or may not have been spent in a car.  But hey, I got to see some gorgeous country… specifically wine country.

After shopping, the ladies went to a marvelous food/wine pairing at the Kendall Jackson winery.  Being underage, not all that interested, and having been feeling a bit ill at the time, I went back to the suite, ate some delicious pizza, and marathoned Criminal Minds.  Win-win in my book.

Here was the trip. (at least the parts I saw)  Enjoy.

(and yeah, it did rain the entire time)

Chico’s Farmer’s Market

Apparently there are THREE markets in Chico.  One on Saturday, one on Wednesday, and I think the other is Thursday? Or Sunday? I can’t remember.  But we took a quick jaunt to one right before the baby shower started (the reason we were in Chico) and I must say: Chico knows how to handle puddles.  Also, there are way too many nice people and delicious food.  And nice people. (I mean heck, I can’t remember the last time I met random strangers who went out of their way to make me laugh)

Enjoy.

Chico

 

 

So I went to California.  For a week.  Spent most of my time at my aunt’s place in Chico.  Both her and my uncle are artists (gourds, glass blowing, metal work, etc) and their home is made of mud, grass, and other free and handmade things.  It’s a cross between Narnia and Lord of the Rings.

I took pictures. Ate delicious food. And had a wonderful reunion with relatives I haven’t really seen much of… or had never even met.  Check out this little visual diary to see what I was up to in one of the coolest places I’ve ever been.
