Weekend Update….

Hello!  Hope you are all doing well.

A young lady I know was graduating middle school this weekend so all things have been geared toward that.  In searching out a dress or two for the various events surrounding said graduation, we had great luck in finding lots of options at Aritzia.

Wilfred Bressan Dress $99

I grew up with this store in Vancouver, BC, first as Hills of Kerrisdale and then eventually their current world of Aritzia.  Although I enjoy shopping there for me, they have plenty of age appropriate options for the teen set and everything in between.

On another note, I have secured a work studio/office space in Seattle starting July 1st so super excited about that.  A space for meeting with clients as well as collaborative projects with my fellow creatives.  My head is thinking about the decor and set up, I will be keeping it fresh and bright.  These are some pinterests that inspire the look.

Happy Tuesday!

Not sure what these gray clouds are doing but just yesterday we were talking sunshine x 10. Hopefully, they are short lived.

Where is Monday Man, Tuesday Tip and all the regular content these days?  Perhaps I am more of a free flow gal and the regiment of specific content is not my deal.  Things are forever adjusting and this site falls under that category.

This week I am prepping for 2 photo shoots, one editorial, one product launch.

Excited to work with Becca Lynn again for one of the shoots.

I am also meeting with an amazing jewelry creator.  Her pieces are beautiful and can’t wait to share more.

I also snagged my web gal (Lonnie) yesterday and she helped me set up long ignored projects (tech is so NOT my thing) so I could bring them to you.  One such thing is my Current Faves tab on this site.  I’ve wanted a space, besides Pinterest, where I could share some goodness I am finding in a simple and clear format.  Men’s, women’s, accessories and perhaps even decor.  These items will change regularly so be sure to check this tab often.

So, the one constant?

That I am on always on style mode.  Whether it is a private closet, an editorial shoot, or an Inner|Style  client, I’m doing what I love.  And when I have good things to share, this is where it will be.

Thanks for being a part of the ride!
