Lost Keys

photo from last year's trans-sib trip

i'm on a horseshit weekend streak
lost keys on friday
lost my mind trying to find them
i blame tile for not shipping their product on time
but seriously
why am i so awful at these things?
this did prompt me to organize,
and realize how much i rely on my bike,
... and make churros
thank god it's monday?

Tycho Poster


Last weekend I finally got around to hanging the poster I got at the Tycho concert. (It's signed!) I couldn't think of a good place for it until my mom had the brilliant idea of rearranging some other pieces. I like it here. Wouldn't it look badass juxtaposed with a vintage Dark Side of the Moon poster? Just sayin'.

Now that my "desk" is done, I'm playing around with the idea of replacing the couch. No rest for the wicked.

Have a lovely weekend!

gorgeous photo by the one and only, anna.

This weekend was horseshit.

But it's a new day. It's Monday, in fact. So, let's kick it. I'll say kick it, and you'll just kick it with a tasty groove, OK?

Everlane Shorts


The Everlane shorts are solid.

I'll be honest with you, I was a little wary of the pleats (anchorman anyone?). But they are just the right balance of baggy + tailored. These have a tiny bit of stretch too. I have a feeling I'll be taking them on a quite a few bike rides this (indian) summer.

A note of sizing: these run a little big. I'm wearing size 2 here. I mostly wear medium with Everlane. (In fact, the tshirt is a medium.) So, I was pretty sure size 4 would fit. I got both sizes, just in case, and ended up keeping size 2. Size 4 ones were far too... puffy, if you will. For the reference, I'm 121/5'7'' (technically, 5'6'' and 1/2).


Everlane has really been killing it this year. The silk, trench, poplin, shirt dress, and now the shorts. Bravo! Have you gotten anything recently?

Had to include this photo because it's hilarious. I'm pretty sure I'm pontificating to the cat.

Steven Alan Sample Sale

photo via la mariniere

Steven Alan gets it. In addition to making spot-on gamine essentials, they curate a selection of other brands. And really, I should limit my shopping at Steven Alan to this time of the year. Even on sale, most of it is absurdly expensive. Although I find it's totally worth the discounted price. (Paid full price for this one. What's more depressing? I don't regret it at all.)

Besides stocking up on the basics (rs shirts + quality tights), here are the pieces that I'd pick...
