I’m not sure if I am feeling more inspired lately or if the new year is just bringing some wildly awesome editorials…I just had to share these photos I stumbled upon via Pinterest. Gotta love late night pinning and studio time! The styling is so on point it hurts!

I know its not Wednesday, but here is my Woman Crush a day early. Meet Lex Weinstein. This brilliantly creative wanderer currently calls Byron Bay home. She left the 9-5 “stable life” in search of inspiration and adventure. If you follow her blog or Instagram its pretty obvious she has found just that. It has been an honor to watch this beautiful woman’s journey unfold. She has an air of confidence and self love that I truly admire. Here are some photos from her feature in Majestic Disorder Magazine, shot by the also super talented Carly Brown, who happens to be a great friend of Lex’s. (OK woman crush x 2)

Every wondered where your clothes were made? Or who made them? Those are the kinds of questions Awear is urging consumers will start asking. I’m sure by now you have heard about the Bangladesh factory collapse…If not, please enlighten yourself here (http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoconnor/2014/04/26/these-retailers-involved-in-bangladesh-factory-disaster-have-yet-to-compensate-victims/)and ask yourself, is buying that cute, uber cheap dress REALLY worth someone else’s safety, possibly their life…

Some tips to becoming more Awear when purchasing clothing:

1. purchase USA made

2. shop at thrift stores

3. purchase fairtrade items

4. eco friendly, sustainability, or vegan

5. check out more on the Awear website at http://www.awear2014.com and see how YOU can join this amazing movement 🙂

It’s been a while, but  I have decided to dive into the personal outfit posts again…Besides The Be Kind Project tees (which you can shop here) this Spell tee has got to be my new favorite! Super comfy and I’m obsessed with the graphics and the vintage feel. And of course it reminds me of my favorite Stones song…The turquoise ring is vintage…I found this little gem in a thrift store back in Delaware. Mermaid and shell ring is by Echo of The Dreamer, a designer that has been a huge inspiration to me. Buddha necklace is an oldie but goodie by the one and only Vanessa Mooney. Turquoise necklace was a gift from my boyfriend’s mother from a swap meet in Arizona! I love how jewelry always has story behind it. After a day of running errands, we made it to the beach just in time to watch the beautiful sunset. Thank you mother nature!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Home studio envy doesn’t even BEGIN to cover it. I finally caved in and bought one of Kelsi’s beautiful sundial watches this past week. I have been eyeing them for a long time, and decided I just had to have one. This morning as I was scrolling through my daily blog roll, I stumbled upon an article on Houzz.com on her beautiful Maui jungle home meets studio space. I love seeing where all of the magic happens and it is easy to see how the creativity flows so easily in this space. Each watch is handmade on her airy lanai (aka veranda). Here a little peak into her magical abode…
