Art, Inspiration, and Life. Sharing all the inspires me to create.


Back to school vibes

It's the first day of school and that means my feed will be filled with first day of school pictures.  As I scroll past these, it makes me crave those first day of school vibes. I lived for the first day of school. Not necessarily for actually going to school, but because it meant I could break out all my new fall school clothes.  It didn't matter if it was too hot to wear them, I did it anyway.  I mean, fall is the BEST season for clothes. I want all the cozy knits, chunky scarves, and warm coats. Throw in a good boot here and there and I'm all set.

I've started putting together my wish list of things I'm coveting (read not buying, as I've put myself on a strict budget these past two years as I have too many clothes to begin with).  I'll be sharing them throughout my 30 day creative challenge.  First up is this Toga Pulla coat.  When I saw this on Blair, my heart skipped a beat.  Is it wrong that I love clothes so much? It really is another form of art for me. Seriously. I had to learn more about this new to me brand.  It's a Japanese brand started by a former costume designer/stylist back in 1997.  The line puts together elements of western wear, vintage, and modern, sleek shapes. I'm obsessed. I'm also really loving their shoe line.
