x’s and o’s from Bario Neal

unruly things | x's and o's from Bario Neal

I usually don’t get into Valentine’s Day but this year, especially now that I’ve got a kiddo who understands a bit more, I’m way into it.  I’ve found myself drawn to hearts and kisses and anything remotely tied to love.

these X’s and O’s from Bario Neal are just perfect, aren’t they?  as you would guess, I’m dying over those studs.  you could wear them anytime you’re feeling a little love.  and under $100, they make a pretty great gift if you ask me!  find them on Bario Neal’s site here.

wearing : my favorite earrings

over the years, my style has become a lot more simplified.  and one of the ways that I’ve toned down what I’m wearing is by building a little collection of mostly stud earrings.  I found out quickly that while wearing shiny, dangling earrings with a tiny baby was a blast for him, the tugging on my ears was not.  so my dangling earrings dwindled and studs came pouring in.  these are my faves which I rotate on a daily basis.

inside circle : Satomi Kawakita twin pearl studs, Fay Andrada Nasta earrings, my beloved emerald-cut garnets which I received as a highschool graduation gift
and that sweet little wooden bowl I keep them in is from Herriott Grace.

wolf : 0652 + epic snow

unruly things : wolf 0652, photo by Alyson Brown

we had snow this weekend, of seriously epic proportions.  as the snow kept piling and piling up outside, I kept giggling to myself and thinking, is this real?!  over all I think we got around 25 inches.  that’s over 2 feet, you guys!  it was mind blowing.  and boy did we take advantage of it!!

we built a snow cave, rode on the neighbors snow mobiles, busted out the ski attachment for Wolf’s bike, went sledding, hunting for buried toys in the backyard, made snow angels.  it was SO fun.  I felt like a little kid all weekend, giddy with excitement!

now the snow is melting and the roads are a slushy mess.  but it was so much fun while it lasted.

I adore this brand new clothing line from former Converse designer, Stephanie Beard. after nearly ten years in the fashion industry in NYC working as a menswear designer for brands such as Converse, Levi’s and Tommy Hilfiger, Stephanie quit her job to move to Austin and launch ebsy.  and it’s really great, don’t you think?

the initial season will be funded by Kickstarter – with limited runs of 30-60 pieces each. once these styles run out, there is a chance they may not return.

Wolf : 0552

we’ve been sick around here.  the worst season for colds ever.  I think between the months of December and January we had 4 colds and perhaps the flu.  just terrible!  but as sick as this kid was feeling, he still managed to smile for the camera.  and that’s why I love him so!

I’m going to try to be a better blogger this week.  but being this little guy’s nurse and my OWN nurse was more important in the last.
