It took me a while to get into Instagram. I resisted because the fact of it is that my daily life is not always so beautiful! But I thought I would share some of my favourites from my account here (user name: fieldguided), because not everyone has an Instagram account or an iPhone and friends of mine have jokingly told me that they feel left out (I know there are web viewers for Instagram, but that’s just one more item to add to an already long list of websites to check). Sometimes I cross-post to Twitter, sometimes I don’t, and apologies if these are all old news to you.
No makeup, satin housecoat, Something Else moonstone sunglasses from Summerland; we went to see Moonrise Kingdom recently and when we exited the theatre at 9.30PM the sky looked like this; a cool intersection we found while going for a coffee at Belljar (hi, Odette!); a locket from BHLDN, complete with a picture of the cats (this will most likely be attached to my wedding bouquet, because I am nuts); a photograph by Rodrigo Daguerre from the exhibition Youth; sandals that I splurged on to get married in (I’ll keep my white oxfords for dancing).
Hazards of throwing your clothes on the bed; the former Catholic schoolgirl in me loves a good church; trims; a party for Etsy Canada; Oreo in a party hat for our friend Annie’s birthday (sorry, Oreo—this lasted about four seconds); Heather sent me the newest OLO scent, Tulare, which smells of sun-baked oranges and earth.
I had a coupon code for a custom Case-Mate phone case, so I decided to create one using a detail from a painting by Adolphe Étienne Piot. I had to cut off her head and much of her dress but I really love her hands; postcards.
