As you may already know if you've been following this blog for any amount of time, I hardly ever wear pants. So imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this dreamy rust hued pair, which might just be my ideal trousers. I'm excited to style them every which way. I have a feeling you will be seeing me in pants a bit more often now...

grass & pods

This week's "just for fun" floral arrangement, featuring some strange green pods that I found growing from a tree. Does anyone know what these are? I love this particular color palette, with the soft yellows, greens, creams, and just a teensy bit of rust hiding in there, much like colors I would put together in an outfit.

A lil' one, made entirely of clippings from my tiny cutting garden I recently planted and a few foraged bits from the side of the road. I found the cute vase at a flea market and it's the perfect size for playing around with smaller scale arrangements like this one. I have a feeling my vase collection is going to become completely bonkers now...

love in a mist

I think Love in a Mist is my new favorite flower, it's so weird and fuzzy and I love that I can use the really long stems in an interesting ways to create shape. I keep seeing it growing on the side of the road here, since pretty much everything growing on the side of the road in California is amazing. It takes quite a bit of willpower not to snip every little bit that I see!
