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!

"Artist Appreciation"

Photo May 01, 8 25 22 PM I've been eyeing and laughing over this shirt for at least six months now. I first learned about the artist through Instagram (seriously where I find out about anything cool) and finally took the plunge and bought it with some commission money from a recent art piece. In my opinion no one is more destined to be a closet metalhead than Ron Swanson, and judging by the smirks I got from passerby's at school today, I think many would agree. Confused? Watch Parks and Recreation. He had me at "meat tornado."

During a study break last night I also made this headband from some extra tshirt material! It adds some extra excitement to a pretty basic outfit. I was hooked and made another for myself and one for my roommate. I can't wait to show you the others in future posts!
