last week, i very quietly packed up my belongings and said goodbye to the bay area. i will be sharing more posts about the move and everything else, but until i get settled, i thought it would be fitting to share this pretty editorial by the loved one. these sunny summer photos have got me in just the right mood for my move to los angeles. and now that i’m in the area, i’ll be able to visit their pasadena shop for the very first time. in fact, they’re having an event this friday night and i plan to make my first visit, so come on out and say hi!

one of my favorite things about the internet is being able to discover new brands and to connect with people all across the globe. which is exactly what happened yesterday when i received a little press release announcing the jane sews spring 2013 collection. i don’t think i had ever heard of them before, but one look at this fresh lookbook and i was hooked. they are a small label based in durban, south africa creating easy-to-wear vintage-inspired pieces using natural fabrics and timeless silhouettes. that pretty much sums up what i want my closet to look like, so of course, i am now lusting after many of these dresses and separates.

if you noticed the silence this past week on the blog, i apologize! i went off to visit family over the holiday weekend and came back with a bit of a bug that kept be down enough that i wasn’t even checking my email. it was a blessing and a curse as i am now desperately trying to scramble and catch up before the week ends! but now that i’m finally back on my feet, i thought i’d share the new spring 2013 lookbook from new york-based in god we trust. the entire collection is made and designed right in new york, and this season was all about capturing the essence of summer in the city. owner and designer, shana tabor says:
“as any proper new yorker knows, half the fun of summer is finding ways to get out of the city—whether it be to a beach, a lake house, or upstate for the weekend. honestly, sometimes you just want to get the hell out of town.”
i may not be a new yorker, but i think we can all relate with that desire to hit the road for the weekend. and what better way to do it than in easy silhouettes decked out in silly novelty prints like over-sized sunglasses and world-travelling kitties, or in crisp, clean colors with cool cut-outs and interesting proportions? you can shop the entire collection right here.
