laura’s jean jacket diy

i, laura, have had this crazy jean jacket idea for a few months now, but it wasn’t until may when i finally had time to get started! i slowly acquired patches from etsy, thrift stores, local stores (like patina and i like you) and random chinese websites hahah! i bought an oversized, rather basic jean jacket from forever 21 (similar here) and put it together 2 weeks ago! i love it because it’s much more personalized than one i could find at the store. i also look forward to filling it with more patches over time!

daily summer posts coming your way & lake harriet!

hi, all! sorry for our lack of posts, we have been busy with graduation and sooo many grad parties! hope everyone is well.

we wanted to let you know that we plan on doing daily posts this summer, like last summer, and that we have so much fun coming! we have been busy coordinating with different companies and brainstorming fun ways to work with them.

i, laura, wanted to share some photos of lake harriet (in minneapolis) that i took the other night! for those of you that haven’t gone and that live in the area, i would definitely recommend that you come enjoy the lake soon! it’s a great place to run, walk, fish, swim, paddle board, enjoy concerts, and eat at too!

this is the rose garden, a beautiful, large park-like space with a bunch of flowers and fountains. it’s right across the lake on the east side.

m is for marist! (my college, if you missed our announcements a few weeks ago)

thanks for reading! see you tomorrow!

happy thurs!

it’s almost the weekend! i, laura, plan on soaking up some sun, running around lake harriet, and catching up on some sleep.

i recently read the best book called isn’t it pretty to think so by jake miller that i would totally recommend!! it’s kind of a bildungsroman that also features great imagery and unique thoughts that cause you to question life as you know it. i could not put it down!

i’ve also been enjoying abstract: the art of design on netflix. it’s a very tastefully done documentary series where each episode features a different artist in very diverse fields of art. it is seriously inspiring, interesting, and amazing- check it out!

as for songs, i’ve been listening to the following: bound to you// jocelyn alice, love// kendrick lamar, how i want ya// hudson thames, doing good// milky chance, wicked// mansionz, and shot down// khalid.

also! i turned 18 a couple days ago. 17 was a great year for me, full of tough decisions and personal growth. 17 brought me fun concerts: broods, rock the garden, børns, trips to new york, naples, miami, and LA, college decisions, late nights of studying, experimenting with writing & photography, memories with family and friends, and a greater understanding of who i am. i am excited for the future and feel very content with the past- every day really does matter and i hope to make them all count as an 18 year old.

thanks for reading! take care & find some sunshine!

highlights of summer 16

today, we started school. it is a sad day but we are excited to get busy with our senior year. this summer was a really good one, one that we will never forget. here’s our summer in pictures.

(scroll over pictures for captions)

laura:

jane:

since we are back in school, we can’t promise a creative post everyday, but definitely have lots in store. stay tuned !!

thanks for following along this summer !

through the lens

today, i, jane, got to photograph a close friend to celebrate her senior year of high school. it was fun to see her through my lens and let her work the camera; different from our usual time spent in school or on the lacrosse field. here are some fun shots I got of her.

photos were taken at lake harriet and the lake harriet rose gardens in mpls.

thank you maddie for being such a fun model !

bye bye summer job

i, laura, absolutely adored my summer job. i spent everyday taking pictures of clothes for an online website and got to learn the ins and outs of an online business. it was everything i could have asked for and more. my last day was last friday and i’ll admit it was pretty hard to say goodbye. i have nothing but respect for the great company i got to work for and an even greater appreciation for my coworkers that made each day full of laughter and fun. i cannot wait to join the full-time working word one day and i hope to do something that can combine my love for business and fashion.

so, fawbush’s thank you for having me this summer. it was a pleasure.
