Distressed Denim

For a while I was on the fence about distressed denim, but it’s grown on me over time… as long as it’s not TOO distressed. These denim shorts from Old Navy have been a staple for me this summer, and the necklace I’m wearing is my favorite find from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale… there are lots of great deals if you haven’t checked it out already!

Shirt: Caslon
Shorts: Old Navy
Sandals: Steve Madden
Necklace: Dogeared


Summer is about half way over for my daughters and they are really enjoying it so far. We recently went on a family vacation to Brasada Ranch in central Oregon… this was the cabin we stayed in during our visit. We did some biking and played a little tennis and volleyball but ended up spending most of our time at the pool. :)

One afternoon I went on a trail run/hike to a place called Spirit Rock… the desert view was really pretty!

Trinket Boxes, Denim, and a Shadow Puppet

Here are a few photos from my ongoing personal photography project… the inspiration topics for these photos were vibrance, red/white/blue (I decided to omit the red), and shadow. Thanks for looking! :)




And, just for fun, a few links to check out!

As someone who does not like airplane travel, this does not look promising.

I loved this show as a child, and the app is fabulous too!
