Good Friday

afterlight (1)

Today is Good Friday, and as I prepare to unpack the darkness of what took place on this day all those years ago, I was reminded by yesterday’s crazy weather just how beautiful it is when light breaks through darkness. This Sunday we will celebrate Jesus overcoming the darkness of sin and death with the triumph of His Resurrection!

WEEKLY WEDNESDAY

Sorry for the lack of consistency with this one. Took me a bit to get the photos off of my camera. Featured this week is David Schmidt’s handmade, under the eyes of Marty from Geekhouse, road bike. We went out or a morning ride two weeks ago, in a thick thick fog. Was awesome getting out and riding the Mercer Island Loop again, my favorite ride in Seattle. Be on the look out for a disposable series from that day as well. .

Music Mondays


I just received this album. I had pre-ordered it months ago and forgotten about it, but what a pleasant surprise. The artwork is so great, the record is blue vinyl, and this song makes me want to learn to tango so bad! I just can pick being in a sweet tuxedo, whisking around a snazzy dressed woman to this song. Modern yet class. Love what Monster Rally is doing. Enjoy.

*EDIT* I began searching around for images that represent this music and immediately thought of 50′s-60′s Modern Beach Houses. Somewhat futuristic and clean but also laid back.


Fashion Friday





So I know that I missed this weeks Weekly Wednesday Post – I have been crazy busy, so it will have to wait til next week. Instead I wanted to share some photos that have been keeping me inspired on the design side of things.

**EDIT** I’m seriously obsessed with the first photo in this post. I love the look. I’d never wear it, but there is just something so awesome about it. Maybe it’s the contrast between a flannel one of the most manly and casual things, and the slightly feminine extremely formal jacket it is paired with.

WINDOW TO THE WORLD

This is pretty rad.

WHERE’S MY YELLOW

Yellow Blog Strip

A good friend once commented to me, after viewing an Ann Demeulemeester collection, “where’s my yellow?” It’s a fantastic quote and has continued to stick in my mind. All black or all grey is great (I mostly wear just that) but it can get monotonous (pun intended?) Whether it’s muted, neon, goldenrod, ochre, whatever… working yellow into your outfit is fantastic.

BEACH DREAMS

This is just too funny to not post. I miss the beach. Thankfully, I live only a few blocks away from a lake that is swim-able in the summer. Rocks are not the same as sand, but they also don’t stick all over you either. Looking forward to warmer days, they are just around the corner.

Photo from Wes Anderson’s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom in case you didn’t already know. ┬áMy current obsession for a few reasons.

The soundtrack:

Okay so pretty much every single aspect of the movie! I love that my blog posts about things are a year after they have been out. I am certainly not the most current, but always relevant!
