A quick glance of the transition of my summer to the start of school. 

All I can think about is getting out in the sun, which I can only think to blame Bridget for since she is a California girl and a lover of sunshine. We went to the beach a few weeks back; she blared music as we sped down the highway with the windows down, the quintessential spring day of a girl living in her twenties. 

I’ve been thinking in patterns lately, which is very out of the ordinary for me since I usually stick to bold colors, mainly black, white and blue. Last night I was cleaning my computer and somehow managed to damage my wireless USB adapter, enough that it stopped working. Without internet to distract me I started drawing shapes and putting them together, which is sort of tranquil, actually. I happened to be watching the Rodarte Spring 2012 RTW show on my tablet, which I took as a sure sign that marigold must be added to the mass of blue. 

I want to make more patterns, but I wonder what to do with them? 

Mirrored patterns give a masculine, geometric aesthetic, which balances the over-all femininity. 

*As you can see, I am having too much fun. 

Lately I really love color. Especially blue. 

Be truly glad. There is wonderful Joy ahead.

Wonderful bag that was a gift for graduation. It’s orange in the sunlight!
