Jeans: skinny or bell bottoms?

Skinny Jean - Indigo Stretch

Stretch Bluebells - HighRise Indigo

I'm currently on the hunt for a great pair of dark wash jeans.  You know...the pair you immediately regret buying soon after you walk out of the store. The pair of jeans you find yourself fibbing about to the husband. "Oh, they were on sale!".  Not so much. The pair you realize was worth the price after 2 years have gone by and they're still your "go to jeans"! That's the pair I'm talking about. The only problem is...which style? I'm loving both the skinny jeans and blue bells from EmersonMade and wish I could just purchase every article of clothing they sell!

I may be leaning towards the skinny jeans, only because it's so easy to go from flats to wellies when Seattle decides to show it's true colors! If I lived in California I would purchase the bell bottoms in a heartbeat! What pair would you choose?

Bon Iver - Holocene

I can't stop watching this video set to Bon Iver's "Holocene". Apparently this was the creator's first attempt at stop motion animation. Well done! This is my favorite song from the new album. To me, "Holocene" feels like a journey and this video fits it perfectly!

Friday Flashback

Do you remember this video? I was in love with The Wallflowers back then, and I still have a little crush on Jakob Dylan. Oh those baby blue eyes!!! Happy Friday!

Sweet Delivery

My wonderful friend/cousin-in-law, Brandy, was kind enough to drop off a few treats at our doorstep last night. We scored some homemade strawberry jam, puree, and fresh squeezed lemonade! She went strawberry picking with her husband and 2 adorable boys (Tanner and Ryder) this past week and came home with a lot of strawberries.

Doesn't that sound like a sweet way to spend your day? And how cute are her jars and tags? The tag reads "From the Kitchen of...Brandy".  Love it!
