I know Summer isn't over just yet (and thank goodness), but I'm already excited about a new season of flowers and foliage in some of my favorite colors. I'd like to think that this particular arrangement is directly inspired by my wardrobe, which as always is brimming with rust, mustard, and white.

august haze

A few images from the past few weeks. I've been busy, still roaming around like a gypsy, still sleeping on different couches, still getting my hands dirty with flowers and meeting so many new people constantly that my head is spinning in the best possible way. I read this article today about traveling and friendship and it has left a mark on me in a way that it probably wouldn't have just a few years ago...

"You travel to get somewhere, and you travel for the sake of adventure, for the scenery, for being in motion, for discovery, for being uprooted and at large, that nice expression that seems to suggest that liberty is an enlargement of the self, that you grow as your scope does. But maybe the final art of travel is arrival, the end of the story that eludes so many of us who are afloat or adrift, who believe there should be, must be, something next."

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...
