April Photo-a-Day | weeks one & two

The last two weeks definitely aren't chronological here... in fact, they weren't logical or systematical or even typical in any way.  
But they were were unbelievably beautiful.

This lake.  This friendship.  This day.  This beautiful life.  I love it all so deeply.

Oh, hope does spring eternal.
Joy, it's good to know you.

What orange said

Outfit Details:
tulle skirt by Kellie Falconer
top, cardi, belt are thrifted
scarf made by me (I hemmed it later that day...)
glitter flats from ModCloth
anchor bracelet by KJP

New for the shop - The KFD tulle skirt in clementine.  

I don't understand orange very well - I had to do some translating to put together this ensemble.  But what I found orange telling me was this.

"Celebrate color!  Delight in texture!  Embrace Spring and be bold and eat sherbet and don't be afraid to show your flamboyant side."

And I just had to say yes.

What does this outfit say to you?

March Photo-a-Day | week four

ONE // an abstract shot of sunset over the amusement park meets a little Adam Young.

TWO // spring is in everything.

THREE // love it when a friend holds my camera and I find a cool shot hiding there.  Thanks Alex!

FOUR // building fairy houses by the creek will never grow old.

FIVE // can I just say I love working with these materials?  It's a good thing, too, because approx. 70 yards of tulle went through the studio this week.

SIX // my mother riding a yak.  A Yak named McCloud.

SEVEN // working all day - listening to Peter Hollens, The Proclaimers, and Chris Thile, broken up with an exhilarating run to the top of the mountain and then back to the sewing machine till after dark.  Making plans for the best summer of all time.  Dreaming dreams and thinking deep.
These are the best days of our lives.

Let it Go

jacket // ModCloth
denim skirt // Kellie Falconer
top - bag // thrifted
shoes // ModCloth
Yesterday I went to town with my dearest Tasha and Michelle to see Frozen.  Finally!  
Am I the last one on earth to see it?  If not, I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I have to say Hans had a baby face that prejudiced me against him from the start, and Christoff was adorable and wonderful and we all loved him.  The costumes were amazing - I want Anna's boots! - and the ice animation was absolutely delicious.  I suspect a large part of my love for Christoff was appreciation of his connoisseur's eye for that gorgeous ice. :grin:

We had an amazing time.  It was my favorite kind of rainy day - grey, but not cold, with this snuggly holiday atmosphere pervading everything.  Is it really spring?  I keep getting this feeling that it's playing good cop bad cop and the snow is lurking just around the corner in case I get too excited about this beautiful weather.  (Yes, rain is beautiful!  bare feet in flats are beautiful!  Puddles are beautiful!)

We went out for coffee afterward just like posh and glamorous girls with cell phones ought.  My shoes sparkled all gold and scallop-y.  We sang Let it Go as we came out of the theater and went through the parking lot, loud and unashamed.  I treasure these times so much.

The Piano Guy's cover of the hit theme is absolutely brilliant.  Be sure to press play up at the top!
Melting together Let It Go and themes from (my favorite) Vivaldi's Winter is one of the best things that will happen to music this year, I have no doubt.

Happy Saturday!  I'll be sitting at my worktable with my serger pedal to the floor - er, to the accordion case, because that's what it's resting on so that I can reach it from my high stool.  I'm so excited to show you what I've been working on lately.  

It's basically the bomb.  :whaat:
