more bloggin'

On top of recently starting my own blog, I have also been working with the gallery that I intern with (83 Gallery in Columbus, OH) on producing bi-weekly posts for their website. The experience has been so much fun so far and has given me a great opportunity to practice writing more each week. My first post on Swiss contemporary artist Urs Fischer was uploaded yesterday! Check it out!

settle down

Ever since the release on Monday of their new single, "Settle Down", I have fallen in love all over again with No Doubt, the third wave Ska revolutionized, multi-platinum band of the 1990s. Well, I guess I've never really stopped loving them considering you can still find me jumping up and down in my room whilst blaring their tunes... ultimately resulting in my neighbor asking me to turn down the "noise". Their music never was and still is anything but "noise" and with that said, I am highly anticipating the release of their new album, Push & Shove, to be released Sept.25.

Here are a few of my favorite retro No Doubt jams...

dont sweat it


I am always appreciative of the summer weather, especially since growing up in a very frigid state like Wisconsin, where the heat only rolls around once a year and lingers for a mere 3 months. What I can't appreciate though is the added sweat factor that the summer blaze can bring along with it. And I must say, there has been a handful of blazing 100 degree weather  days so far this summer. So what is a girl to do in the swelter when she loves to layer and wear long sleeves and when her only options to stay cool are limited to wearing either really tiny shorts or well... nothing?

Current fashion designer and former television star, Whitney Port does it right, shown here shopping in Malibu on July 14. This white, open knit sweater is perfect (maybe not quite for a 100 degree weather day) but for those perfect summer days when you've exhausted all of your fun summer tanks. Because this sweater is so loose and light weight, Whitney is allowed a relaxing day of shopping without having to worry about her clothes sticking to her skin. Who would've known? Not to mention, she completes  the look with lace scalloped shorts and a pair of leopard print flats. Trรจs chic! 

Still not convinced that you can pull off a sweater in this weather? Follow these simple tips from one of my favorite blogs and you'll be well on your way to feeling confident when it comes to mixing the seasons...
