The ROUNDUP // 8.20.17

A few of my favorite finds in fashion, art, interiors, and more from around the web.

1  I'm so inspired by Rejina Pyo's Fall 2017 collection. I think it is both incredibly current and also timeless, and that's a hard balance to strike. (Honestly WTF)  |  2  The piercing gazes and layered prints in Kelly Beeman's fashion illustrations are really captivating to me. (Kelly Beeman)

 

3  This home tour of an Austin "Vintage Treasure Hunter" is full of charming finds and clever decor ideas. (Apartment Therapy)  |  4  My current favorite TED Talk: Françoise Mouly, The New Yorker's art director, tells the stories behind the magazine's iconic covers. (TED)

 

5  I loved this studio tour with Heidi Lee, an innovative milliner inspired by surrealism. (Nylon)

 

And a few more...

These tiny dioramas blew my mind.

Color Factory looks so cool!

Are you going boot crazy yet? These pink velvet beauties and these trompe l'oiel sock boots are topping my list.

I love the heirloom quality of this Stella & Dot necklace.

The most high-fashion temporary tattoos to ever exist.

I loved this article about leaning into what you already are.

This is my life: 14 examples of extroverted introverts.

And my favorite thing I've read lately, Austin Kleon on a major lesson in learning from his 4-year-old son.

And in case you missed it around here, I shared a retro-inspired Last Days of Summer playlist.

It's also the last day to enter my Maskcara giveaway, so if you haven't done so already, head on over to Instagram and tag a beautiful friend!

FRIDAY VIBES // Keep Swimming

Friday-Vibes-Keep-Swimming-Dive

I have a very draining creative cycle. It basically involves having big events and deadlines, like Sunday's runway show for Alternative Fashion Week, and working kind of obsessively for weeks, not sleeping nearly enough, you get the drill. Then the event or deadline passes and I'm in massive recovery mode for a couple of weeks, needing to catch up on rest and all the self-care that I neglected the weeks before, until the next big event or project is on the calendar and it's back to the cycle. While I have definitely been resting up this week, I'm trying not to fall too deep into recovery mode. I instead feel like I just need more structure and balance at all times, looming deadline or not. This is the constant creative struggle for me.

I love these swimming images because they're basically how my mind feels right now. Or, I suppose, how I aspire for my mind to feel. I've never been much into swimming myself, but I love how swimmers seem to have this perfect balance of zen mindlessness and focused purpose, kind of like meditation. The repetition of motion and pattern in these images is speaking to my quest for routine while the overall vibe is reminding me not to obsess or shut down, but to patiently and continuously keep pushing into the next phase. Just keep swimming.
