Summer calls for striped socks paired with ridiculous shoes and new reading material.

Sometimes inspiration shows up in very unlikely places (like J. Crew catalogs). I loved the colors and handwritten type treatment in these.

Not that you can tell from these photos, but it was 106 degrees in Portland a few days ago. Totally unfathomable. My brother and I couldn’t take it any longer (I was sitting in my office trying to do freelance while dripping with sweat!) so we drove downtown and wandered through air conditioned stores.

I was particularly impressed with the lighting set-up in Anthropologie.

I’m on a major promo kick at the moment. These postcards just arrived and I just did a prototype of my media kit in a book format. Tune in on Monday for the outcome!

I don’t really know where this week went. Between juggling freelance and painting the dining room with my brother (cue disaster; it’s a good thing we’re ripping out the carpet because he kept dropping the roller and the floor is covered in paint!) the days have completely evaporated. I can’t believe it’s already August tomorrow….

How was your week?
