q&a with Garmentory

q&a at garmentory | unruly things

the ladies at Garmentory asked me a few questions about my favorite things. read my Q&A here.

speaking of Garmentory, have you ever heard of it? it’s is a fantastic site which offers clothing from various boutiques and brands at discounted prices. see something you like? make an offer on it. if your offer is accepted, your item will ship directly from that boutique and if not, try again! such an amazing concept. here’s a few things that I’m eyeing.

bite + sip : what to cook when it’s hot hot hot

bite + sip : keeping it cool |unruly thingssince the temps hardly ever reach super high and nights are cool, most homes in Oregon don’t have air conditioning – like ours. so when it gets hot in the afternoon, it really gets hot. we’ve been in temps over 90 for a week now, with no immediate end in sight. I can hardly imagine turning on my oven nor do I want to! so this week I’ve been hunting for recipes that only require stovetop use or no cooking at all. salads, pasta, wraps, etc. here’s a few of my inspirations.

what do you cook for dinner during the hottest days of summer?

little things : our favorite summer clothes

little things : our favorite summer clothes | unruly things

lately Wolf has spent almost every waking second playing outside in the backyard. it’s almost summer and it sure feels like it. he runs around bare foot, sprays the hose, helps me water the plants, hunts for four {and five!} leaf clovers, ants & flowers, and just has a blast being a kid. since he’s outside a lot, I like to pick comfy clothes for him that are still stylish but can take a beating. one of my very favorite brands is Nico Nico. the clothes are made with the softest organic cotton you can imagine and fit great. I’ve enjoyed many of their past seasons but I must say, this Spring/Summer collection is one of my very faves. with the combos of bright colors, indigo dyes & stripes and camo, you can’t ask for much better. have a peek here.

end of summer getaway

end of summer

Levi and I have been dreaming about an end of summer vacation to the Oregon Coast.  if you know me at all, you know the Coast holds a very special spot in my heart.  plus, we haven’t really done much in the form of traveling this summer and are itching to get away.  I created an outfit, perfect for combing the beach for treasures, to get me inspired {and perhaps give me the kick in the pants to make the adventure really happen!}
