Are you taking a vacation this summer (or this season)?  Where are you headed and who's going with you?

we are going to portland, seattle, santa rosa, mammoth and maui in the next few months. plus hopefully a fun los angles weekend for dinner, disneyland and family.

clothes! today i wore my pink vox t shirt! yesterday i had on a simple red t with a tiny little pocket. wednesday i wore a baby pink h&m t with a brown nest tank from doe. tuesday i wore my sweats all day, we had gym class so i had on my dark blue nike sweats and an amy tangerine 'go' t. monday i had on a button up that i got in portland when i was shopping with lydia. and if your reading this lydia, i don't think i'm going to keep it. it feels a little too bit costumey-rock-a-billy to me. and i've also worn my marc by marc jacobs red thermal with blue flowers on it and my love all creatures great and small t this week.

What is your home decorating style, and how has it changed over time? Do you have plans to redecorate? 
Submitted by enSue.

i think i hold back to much in my decorating style. i'm really into minimalism and modern. and andy tends to be afraid of this being too cold so i end up adding shapes and colors that aren't my first choice. my other reason for holding back is that i've always been waiting to do what i truly want to do for the house we own/build.

so i like simple but i also like little bits of lovely personality with photos, art, sentimental pieces, but not cluttered. as i design my dream house i'll be incorporating built-ins and shelves, places for art, big windows. i start salivating at the thought. i really want to design a home for us.

clothing! on monday i ended up with a third outfit! i put on a lacy white tank layered under a marc by marc jacobs tunic top and true religion dark jeans with the woman patch on the butt. tuesday i wore my charolette i love you red and white striped tee and jeans to eliot's new gym class! wednesday i did camp consultations and had on my white tank under my lamb pirate ship tee, marc by marc jacobs green gauchos and black boots. in the evening i went to an amazing event* with eliot in menlo park and wore a lovely black top with satin covered buttons on the 3/4 length sleeves, a key hole back and fitted, jeans rolled to my knees with tall black boots.

*roz savage gave an inspiring talk telling her atlantic ocean tale and answering questions. eliot even got to touch her big boat!!

outfits: today i wore all purple again, the same outfit i wore in ojai. yesterday was a long walk to the park in a brown tank, stripey belt and seven jeans. and the day before was my marc by marc jacobs smile dot top.

so i wore the same outfit twice already and i shopped in ojai and i did buy a pair of booty shorts for $10 the other day. which i totally said don't even count, because you know, they're $10 booty shorts. i'm not  sure  i'll  ever  wear them outside.  and i  feel  these  posts  are probably a  bit boring…  is my  experiment over after just one month? no, i'm going to keep going and i'll keep documenting it here because it is convenient.

so if you know me you know that i shop too much. and i shop everywhere. i shop at boutiques online and inperson. i shop at old navy. i shop at target. i love clothes. lovvvvvve them. but, i spend too much money and often don't get around to wearing the stuff i buy for way too long after i purchase it. i've been thinking for awhile that i need to go on a shopping hiatus. so i finally came up with something that would inspire me in my closets and when i am tempted to shop. like i said, if you know me, this is huge for me. i've decided to give myself a wardrobe challenge. and it is simply this: i must wear every single piece of clothing i own before i can allow myself to buy another item. and if i am tempted and buy an article of clothing, i have to start the entire process all over again!

i started as of yesterday, tuesday february 20. i wore a brown long sleeved sweater/thermal layered under a short sleeved thermal tee with a brown heart on it, brown angel cords and my campers love flats. and a marc by marc jacobs redish hoodie fake fur lined jacket.

today i wore a red and white long sleeved tee and grey cable knit cropped sweater cardigan, both by proenza schouler  for target, seven for all mankind dojo jeans dark wash, and red patent leather maryjane flats.

andy and i were joking that this could take me like 6 months! wish me luck! seriously, wish me luck.

What do you collect?

1.i'm a big sucker for all things sanrio. primarily hello kitty and chococat. i buy notebooks, bags, wallets, shirts, jewelry and more. it's a problem. i am a grown woman after all. but i enjoy it still.
2.i collect tori amos stuff but not as obsessively as i have in the past. some of my prized collection of tori includes never released photos, they are the 3×5 prints from a photo shoot in studio with michael stipe, a signed little earthquakes promo cassette and a personal message from tori when i met her that she signed on my scarlett's walk map.
3.i love marc jacobs and betsey johnson, i think of my clothes as collections. fantasy is to have a room with all of my art supplies and crafty crap in it. i get giddy around fabrics and ribbons and other trims. i'd be lost for hours creating and organizing.
5.tom robbins
6*.thomas the tank engine is very big in our house and is beginning to rival all of my collections and my husband's put together.

*technically my son's collection, but we all enjoy it.
