If Work Permits

IMG_4226 This lace tee is coming through for me again, making all of my summer dresses work appropriate. I first tried it out by layering and knotting the tee over a floral dress for a summer look, but I like it over this striped dress even more. (Which is pretty impressive because I really liked that first combo!) I then added my all-black essentials, grabbed my laptop and drawing tube, and was out the door!

I wanted to share a small preview of some of the things I have been doing during my work day. Assisting an architect with floorplans and planning out a subdivision are what's in store right now. I love that when I go to work I have some things I am consistently working on, but also new information and projects pop up every day!

Hey guys! I wanted to share about my field trip in San Diego this past weekend and what I wore each day. It was super warm in SoCal so I kept it simple and functional for all of our events. On our trip we did 4 studio tours, went to the Salk Institute and UCSD campus, the beach, and the Kobey Flea Market! ps. this also is the first post i've done about architecture, so I've added an Architecture category to the blog!

My class went on four studio tours learning about the techniques and built work of various firms around San Diego. I really learned a lot from each firm, but I have to say that touring the studio/home of Lloyd Russell was my favorite stop of the day. He is an alumni of my school and is basically a certified badass. I really admire his hands on involvement in the construction process of his buildings and his ability to save money on projects.

This image shoes the glass window that we could stand on. The window was hooked to a motor that let it down as it opened to the outdoors and became a glass patio.

For the last part of our trip, my friends and I hit up the Kobey Swap Meet! I had never been to a flea market before, so I was really excited. The flea market had a good mix of clothing, antiques, and home decor items--but I ended up buying just a couple of non-fashion related items.

This is the vintage toolbox I scored to store all of my architecture supplies in studio. I also bought a blank skateboard deck for $2 that I plan to paint in the future.
