I went on my first dumpster dive the other day. Now that I’ve done it, I think everyone should experience it. Nothing compares to being inside a dumpster and seeing first hand what people throw out. To learn more read my blog post over on The Sound.

Spring 2016 Style Inspiration

The things I want to wear for spring and summer are so basic they hardly seem worthy of a post. I just want to wear linen t-shirts and skirts.

I’ll continue to carry my oversized rattan bag. It’s great for carrying library books and that extra cashmere sweater that you need when the AC is too high.

I want to work a giant silk scarf into my spring/summer wardrobe. I’m inspired by Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre. [say that 10x fast] I attempted to make something like this once already. It came out horrible, but I’m willing to try again. Who is up for another #portcitydye?

I’m not going to pretend I can wear anything but a sensible shoe. I stand at work and I like to go for walks. I think a pair of  Teva sandals in a pale color would look good.

For days off I’ll throw on some cropped jeans. I recommend going directly to the men’s section at thrift stores. You’ll have more luck finding well-worn high-waisted Wranglers and Lees.

I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to Jean Fringe.

I cut my hair a little shorter than I love so for the time being I’m going to sport a Victoria Beckham knot or a short pony. I realize how insignificant that sounds.

I think that covers it. What are you wearing for Spring and Summer?
