It's been a few months now since we made the big move from Portland to Seattle, and everything is starting to fall back into place. We recently opened up our studio for the First Thursday Art Walk in our new hood, Pioneer Square, to show off the new space. I get so excited coming to work every morning, and feel so inspired in the new studio. I hope you like it! -Kim

My sister and I found the prettiest lookout yesterday. The weather has been so nice lately, that we decided to venture out and take some outfit photos. Kerry Park has one of the best views of the city, and is a must for anyone visiting Seattle. I love finding new places and getting to know this city. I think this spot would be the perfect place to relax, take in the views and watch the sun go down. -Kim

Last week I had what I like to call a "dark week." I had the worst cold ever recorded (Okay, I might be exaggerating ever so slightly) and spent most of my time in bed watching old Gossip Girl episodes. While I was hiding under the covers, Seattle decided it was finally time for spring. The weather has been nothing short of amazing, and I couldn't wait to get outside and finally get to enjoy some of the sun.

I'll be spending most of my time catching up on work and decorating the studio. What do you have planned for the rest of your week? -Kim

Seattle has so many cute little hidden streets and alleyways. I found this amazing brick wall right by the studio, and couldn't resist stopping for a few poses. Every year I dread daylight saving time. I mean who really wants to lose a precious hour on Sunday? No one. It seems to take me forever to get back on track, but somehow this year the lost hour has made me more productive. Anyway. I can't wait for warmer weather. Spring feels like it's just around the corner! Are you having a productive week? -Kim

First of all, I want apologize for the long absence. I flew home for the holidays right after my last show, packed up and moved, then the next thing you know it's March. So there's that. I will be sharing details about all that in the coming weeks, but for now I want to share my new favorite tee. I know cutesy french phrases can be a little cliché (especially in floral), but I don't care. This tee is comfy, cute and just the right amount of spring for March. I can't wait to wear it with my favorite skirts in the summer. What's your favorite piece of clothing right now? -Kim
