Crazy cat lady

No, I am not a crazy cat lady. But lately, I'm totally obsessed with all things kitty cat.  I don't know what has come over me.

 I'm completely beside myself over this adorable planter from Leah Reena Goren. I've been trying to get my hands on one forever but they always sell out before I can buy one. (Picture a very sad faced Katie here).  In LOVE with this.

 and this ring from Datter Industries..... killing me! Anyone wants to buy me one a size 7 would be fantastic! LOL! I love how his face is super grumpy. Maybe what I have is a grumpy cat obsession?

 ...and then there are these amazing scarfs from Leah Reena Goren...... one of each please! Fabulous!

First day of school

Are your kids back in school? Ronan just had his first day, and I can't believe how big he is getting! It doesn't look like it from this photo...but he was actually really excited to go to school...just not super happy about me taking his picture.  Taking a picture in front of the door to the house has been a tradition in my family forever, it had to be done! Sorry Ronan! Look at that grumpy face!

Oh happy day!

I got the opportunity last month to meet one of my blogging heroes, Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day!  She was doing a craft night at her studio, and I just so happened to have a scheduled trip to San Francisco at the right time! I lucked out! Yahoo!  Jordan does these amazing workshops every year and I've always wanted to go to one. Specifically, the screen printing class. Folks you would not believe how much fun this was! We had 8 amazing designs to choose from and you could bring as many t-shirts, bags, pillowcases etc as you liked to print. I walked away with about 20 adorable shirts and bags.  Ronan is going to have the cutest shirts in his class this year! We were also treated to yummy snacks and goody bags full of super cuteness. If you are not familiar with the fabulous Oh Happy Day blog...check it out here! She is the reason I started blogging and is an inspiration to me daily! She is amazingly creative and talented.

My new favorite dress


 I have newly discovered this dress from Madewell (looks like it's on sale!), and friends...I am obsessed with it. Now really, it's a possibility that I should NOT be wearing this dress. It is indeed...a trapeze dress/swing dress. It's very long and roomy and it's supposed to be that way.  It's probably definitely made for tall, lithe Twiggy types who are the lucky owners of legs for days. BUT...I tell ya..this dress is fabulous. It strikes the absolute perfect point between comfort and elegance.  I just can't even stand it. I want to wear it all the time. I love this dress so much that I bought it in both patterns, because I think they strike very different notes. The black and white being bold and a bit funky, and the blue one being a bit more sweet and vintage feeling.  I think that I carry it off pretty well, being a super shortie, by sporting heeled clogs with it.  In fact, I think everyone should sport heeled clogs when wearing it, even Twiggies, because heeled clogs are rad.  Ok fine, if you are a 6' tall Twiggy go ahead and slap on some super cute flat sandals.  The rest of us mere mortals can pair this amazing dress with these ABSURDLY AMAZING clogs from Maguba (don't you just love that color?), and a lovely long necklace from my favorite jewelry artist Takara. I have the necklace on the bottom and it's just perfect with the dress. 
Trust me friends. This one is a keeper.

I gotta tell ya...these pants are snazzy showstoppers! Excellent work ladies! Check out the shop over at Thief and Bandit for the whole line.
