Paleness, Away!

Let the sun shine!!

Spent the morning and early noon working an event so when it ended, I bolted for the outdoors. Traded in my polo for a tank and grass. Sam rocked his new neon pink sunnies from Avalon and I threw on paisley prints from J.Crew...outlet clearance, of course. Had a sun bathing good time for an hour before I had to develop some prints and dinner date with a friend [oh HI HEATHER!!] 

Rock some pink shades:

And some paisley pants:

The Stomps of Blue Footed Boobies

What a revitalizing weekend!

Been feeling a bit boggled by academics lately- the mid-college slump? future planning strugs? should've been in architecture? ShouldaCouldaWouldas of a week.

So instead, I painted all Friday and we hiked around Laumeier Sculpture Park today before I returned to touching up the painting. It was terrific, and just what I needed. More photos of the painting to come as it gets finished up, but I realized that it's not always hard to do what you love. I'd like to think that my logical self is appeased on the regular by my studies and academic direction. And even my whole self knows that I truly do enjoy marketing. But more recently than ever, I've been wistfully wishing that I had been brought up just a little bit more liberal, not that I could ever blame my beyond impressive and hard working parents. But I wonder what I'd be like if I had dived into art years before the latter half of college freshmen year. Right now, I've just breached the threshold of "oh, this looks like a painting." I haven't quite reach the confidence level that would allow me to fully believe in my skills so I struggle a bit to commit. It's been 5 months since I last painted- EEKS! I don't even plan on waiting more than a week this time around.

I think I have very sporadic and choppy thoughts..

On a brighter note, baby blue footies [!!]:

And Had A Really Really Really Good Time


Had the most AHMAZING internal-organs-squishing-front-row-pit-jamming concert ever yesterday. WUSTOCK is one of WashU's largest free concerts to the students and...MACKLEMORE CAME THIS YEAR!! But because of a freak snow storm to welcome spring, the concert moved to the Pageant venue and only 2,000 people were allowed. I lucked out and was able to go.

I am IN LOVE hearts and all with my sequin shirt from Avalon. I wear it to Macklemore. I wear it to lounge.  I wear it on gloomy days. So here are some more snazzy sassy sequin tops:
black leopard
geo block
heart cutout
leaf tee
colorful ombre

We held him up standing above the crowd. And then everyone fell and my legs were flattened by the weight of the crowd (actually.) I cried during Same Love and Otherside. And And Sam caught a water bottle Macklemore threw. And Julie and I pleaded with security to let us take it out.

Then we walked a couple miles in the snowland home. Basically, perfect.

Old Montreal Youngins

And we're backkk!! Sprang Breaked in Montreal like a bamf. We ate and walked to the next place we'd eat. And perused art galleries home to a dog named Moose. I'm dedicating this post to Old Montreal- a beautiful section of the city that housed crafts of all different sorts and felt oh-so-European. The air was pretty balmy in the 40s so we strolled around the nestled cobble paths for most of the day, taste testing maple butter and pastries along the way.
