Getting settled in.

My friend Andrea Trew runs a store called MODafind, and we met recently to talk about selling some of her jewelry designs at Hello Holiday. I fell in love instantly with this multi-strand bracelet made of vintage gold-toned chains, orange glass beads, and rhinestones and never wanted to take it off.
I’m not a big jewelry wearer–I definitely have strong preferences when it comes to accessories and I’m picky about the kinds of things I wear. This bold, costume-y piece is the perfect addition to my carefully-curated collection of baubles and feminine fineries.
In addition to jewelry that is EXACTLY my taste, MODafind also sells some well-chosen vintage items including brightly-colored and completely fixed-up vintage typewriters! In teal, orange, blue, red…and more are being added all the time. Just one of those cute little shops that’s worth adding to your faves.

I guess it’s lame to start a blog post by talking about the weather, but ’tis the season to blab on and on about how nice it is outside in Omaha! We finally had a gorgeous sunny day in the 70s here and from the looks of the forecast, the lovely days are here to stay. In Nebraska we tend to bypass Spring completely and go from 50 degrees to 90 degrees in the span of a week or so.
So pretty much every time we go out to take photos near our office, we get catcalled by somebody. Either a guy drives by and feels the need to yell something out his window, or it’s a group of kids (kids!) walking home from school, or it’s a person walking in or out of one of the nearby bars. I always respond with the thumbs down. Sometimes I say “I don’t wanna hear that” or “Go f— yourself.” I like that Sarah keeps taking pictures as I react.
The other day a man with his young son in the front seat of the car rolled his window down and yelled “Hey ladies! Lookin’ very sexy! That’s what I like to see!” You should have seen Sarah rip into him about being a role model for his son. Shoutout to men who end the cycle of street harassment by not modeling it for their children. Thumbs downin’.
At first I was kinda unsure of how to wear this shirt with the beautiful sheer panel, but when I put it on I wasn’t uncomfortable in it at all. I’ve never worn anything like this and I don’t have the most confidence about my midsection but with a pair of high-waisted shorts it was perfect. I’m thinking about picking it up for my trip to Germany this summer. (I’m going! I’m going! June 10-18, tickets booked.)
