Dancing in the Street

11th June, 2013

DancingInTheStreet1Life has been a little scattered for me lately, and not in a bad way. Like I mentioned to you HERE, I’ve been spending a lot of time out east, painting a massive mural inside an airstream trailer. It was supposed to be a quick and easy weekend project, but I have a bad habit of going all-in on everything ~ meaning I got really into it, the idea evolved, and somehow it’s turned into over 6 weeks of on-and-off work. In order to keep things moving on it, and also keep up with my clients, meetings and shoots in the city, I’ve been constantly crisscrossing back and forth between country and concrete till my head spins! But it’s felt good to throw myself into a creative project unrelated to fashion. I’ve missed painting; it’s something I grew up doing and then haven’t done for nearly a decade. There are never enough hours or days to do all the different projects I’d like to do. Making jewelry, making paintings, making epic photo stories: they all take time and thought and a lot of love, and I’m giving all I’ve got.DancingInTheStreet2I’m really, truly happy when I’m making stuff. I don’t enjoy being idle; I can only relax when I’m getting my hands dirty with a rewarding creative endeavor ~ so as you can see, right now I’m pretty darn contented. Summer is slowly creeping up, the sun is shining, and the possibilities for how to fill a day are absolutely endless. Getting dressed up in the city for collaborative brainstorming sessions or wearing oversized sweats, covered in paint ~ I need both in my life, so thank goodness I don’t have to choose.DancingInTheStreet3|WEARING| Westward\Leaning sunnies, Kenneth Cole vest, Primary tunic (worn backwards), Ben Minkoff bag, Rebecca Taylor pants (previously seen HERE), super-old L.A.M.B. shoes (also worn yesterday! they’ve been on heavy rotation again lately)
