Island Time

 I recently spent a few dreamy days on the beaches of Mexico. While most of my stay was spent in a swimsuit and cover-up, I did put on real clothes a couple of times. All the bright colors of both the natural landscape and architecture were so aesthetically inspiring, and I thought this vibrant vintage frock was well-suited to the surroundings. More vacation pictures to come!

Happy Camper

While I'm not much of a camper myself, I do love hanging out in the woods. When some friends ventured out into a majestic, mossy swath of land at Mount Hood, I crashed the campsite for a few hours. That quick visit was enticing enough that I plan to actually spend the night next time.

Fall Back

This odd '70s vest (that surely had some matching wide-leg trousers at some point) was one of those thrift store finds that I was inexplicably drawn to without really knowing why. While I wasn't sure how or even if I was going to wear it, I went ahead and grabbed it. Seeing it as part of an outfit, I can safely say I dig it. It may not be a new staple, but I'm happy to take it for a spin.

Special Agent Dale Cooper

What would a Twin Peaks Halloween be without good old Agent Cooper? And, of course, plenty of doughnuts and coffee black as midnight on a moonless night.

Happy Halloween from Twin Peaks!

Happy Halloween! Not only is Twin Peaks one of my favorite TV shows, but its upcoming return to the screen and my new home in the Pacific Northwest made it seem like a perfect costume this year. While there are many amazing characters to choose from, I went with Nadine (post-traumatic head injury). As far as I know, Nadine is not one of the characters returning for the reboot, but I feel like a cheerleader for the show in this look! Oh, and it's fun to pretend to have super human strength.

Halloween is my favorite! In the process of geeking out over the spooky holiday, I usually end up with multiple costumes (who can pick just one?!). This is my more low-key look this year - the impeccable, original, octogenarian fashion icon, Iris Apfel. This costume was super easy. All I had to purchase were her signature spectacles, and everything else I pulled from my closet. If you have yet to catch the recent documentary about her (Iris), see it now! She is impossibly charming, hilarious and insightful, and her relationship with her husband will make your heart melt. My second costume (as well as Igby's get-up) is coming tomorrow! Stay tuned.

Fab Fabric

 Lately I've been unable to resist textured textiles and fringe of any kind, so it's no surprise that this wrap skirt spoke to me. Paired with a super lived-in tee, classic denim jacket and my tried and true Chelsea boots, this outfit was fit for an easygoing evening.
