Internship Attire

IMG_4095 I am excited to say that I have a new job and have been back at work the past few days! It is a summer internship within the architectural realm, but dealing more with real estate and site development. I worried at first that my design background wouldn't translate well to the real estate world, but have been surprised at how much I enjoy the work. We have been going on site visits, meeting with the city, and I work on land plans using Illustrator both at home and in the office. I am loving it!

For work attire I am drawn to geometrics and neutrals. I like an outfit like this for work because it is professional, but still young and bold. I'm also carrying one of my favorite notebooks by Quattro. The paper is thick and high quality, and I love the fold over cover in charcoal that is very minimal.

Electric Ladyland

IMG_3645 The legacy of graphic tanks and shorts continues. This has been my uniform for the last few days because of the heat, but I'm not complaining. This is a favorite look for me because it is comfortable and I can just add interest with accessories. I'm loving how the bright print of the shirt and the grass in the background are giving off an electric vibe.

This morning I got a long overdue haircut and I am loving the healthy feel. It may look shorter because of the curls my stylist gave me (which I love) but it's still got a lot of length. I can't wait until I have long locks!

OOTD_100 "Restart"

DSC_1246 Since today is my 100th outfit post (eek!) I wanted to be sure to wear some special pieces. I am completely obsessed with these leather UNIF pants, and even more obsessed with the price. I picked them up a month ago on eBay for $17. Basically unheard of considering their normal retail price. Today I am rocking them with this awesome muscle tee and am accessorizing with black, what else?

Because today is a special post, I was sure to feature one of my favorite bands, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! Today's outfit track is their newly released song "Restart" that came out yesterday. Listen to it here while you view!

Now that I've hit the big 100, I think from here on out I will stick to outfit titles with just song names for a cleaner look without numbers. A little "restart" if you will ;)

ART_"Guster" Skateboard Deck

DSC_1230 I have another music inspired deck to share with you today! After working with a client on this board, she asked me to paint another board for her and of course I said yes. This time she wanted me to reinterpret the album cover of Lost and Gone Forever by Guster. She asked for me to just focus on the main boy and also paint him in stencil style similar to Banksy.

I also wanted to share more of my process with you today. I started by playing around with the album cover in Photoshop, and ended up with this.

For the rest of the painting process, you can watch this quick iPhone video I made featuring music from the album. Otherwise, there are more detail photos below!
