Friday!

Well, this was another week was full of triggers and things that make you want to scream. I again want to send out love to everyone else out there feeling the weight of patriarchy trying to crush our spirits. Don’t stop the fight, don’t stop resisting, but DO take care of your mind and body and spirit. Take a break. Take a walk. Find a way to help empower and back the issues you find most important without putting yourself constantly in the maelstrom of hate. I need to take my own advice here, too. It’s hard when every impulse in your body is in fight or flight. It isn’t sustainable. Take the time to enjoy the moments and the season and your loved ones or you will run out of steam. I love you. You are valued. You are important. You are smart. You are strong. You are powerful. Take care of your wonderful self. xx Jen

Tuesday Catching Up…

honey-kennedy-sezane-fall-2017-01

Good Morning, friends. I hope you had a good weekend and start to your week. I know it’s tough right now to keep our heads up — I’m feeling it big time. It’s hard to get my posts about design and beauty and other musings rolling when all I can think about is gun control, the people of Puerto Rico (Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz is an American hero), racism, and the blatant greed and abuses of power going on in our government.

I love what I do, but I’m here with you feeling all the anger and sadness. I just wanted to send out some love to everyone out there because writing about dresses can feel tone deaf. I do feel strongly about supporting small businesses, local events, and primarily women-owned businesses — especially in this climate of corporate greed being allowed to run rampant and given so many perks, publicity, and the financial ability to promote themselves across all the corporate social media platforms so many of us are tied to.

I’m going to be here doing what I do, talking about talented creatives and beautiful shops, celebrating design, celebrating women, and calling attention to the things that catch my eye. I just want you to know that it isn’t without the constant waves of consternation we’re all feeling right now — it can be emotionally paralyzing and it’s definitely infuriating to deal with so many nonsensical actions from people who are supposed to be leaders. Lots of love to you. xoxo Jen

HAPPY FALL! I turned on the heat for the first time yesterday and nature has finally brought us some heavy rains in the NW. Fall will always be my favorite, but it is a bittersweet farewell to roses and stone fruit and long nights. I’m so happy cuddled up on the sofa with big cups of fancy tea (Earl Grey with lavender and rose!!) from my friend Jenna. I was blindsided this week when I woke up with a horrible cold and high fever on Monday morning and haven’t been able to get all my posts together this week. I’m looking forward to a mellow weekend of rest and visiting with friends in town. Have a cozy one, friends! See you next week! xo Jen

Happy Friday, friends! I’m moving from kicking and screaming about the end of summer into excitement about fall rather quickly. Fall will forever be my favorite season, but I just wish there were roses, stone fruit, and rosé on the patio enveloped in all that autumnal splendor. I thought this floral headpiece and fainting on a Salvador Dali sofa summed up the drama and transition pretty well. Ha. Have a great weekend! See you Monday! xx Jen
