Creature comforts

creature comforts - drifter and the gypsy blog

This past weekend I literally spent painting a Color Theory project for 10 hours straight each day, with meal and bathroom breaks in between. I finished and submitted it late Sunday night with 2 hours to spare until the deadline. Needless to say, this weekend was all about comfort alllll the way. I found this button-down Steven Alan shirt at the Crossroads SF Shopping Party last week and basically lived in it this past weekend.

Cutie Patootie

You may have seen the Leith Clark x Warby Parker collection as it was released late last year, but I found it too good not to share.

I don’t know about you, but I was the kid who always wanted glasses (I also always wanted braces and ended up having to get those, but that’s another story).

Quick trip down memory lane: When I was in first grade, I got sand in my eyes while playing in the sandbox and proceeded to get really excited because I thought I might need to get glasses to see better. I was kind of messed up as a child, I know;)

This collection makes me want to get glasses all over again. Retro and preppy with the perfect amount of dreaminess.

Since I still don’t need prescription eyeglasses, maybe I’ll get myself some sunglasses instead!

Now which ones could you see YOURSELF wearing?

A Wendy for Every Occasion

When I was younger, I had a friend who had a pretty awesome playhouse. It was built by her dad who was a contractor or something cool like that in my little 7-year-old eyes and I was oh-so-envious.

The original Wendy house was built for Wendy Darling in J. M. Barrie’s play, Peter Pan. Wendy was shot by the Lost Boy Tootles after arriving in Neverland, so Peter Pan and the Lost Boys built a small house around her where she had fallen. Now a Wendy house refers to a small playhouse for children that is large enough for more than one child to enter.

Hey guys! This Thursday, January 30th from 6-9 pm (at a very secret location in downtown san francisco), I’m hosting a pop-up shop with Crossroads Trading Co. The space is limited to 150 guests who get the rare opportunity to shop racks from all 6 of Crossroads Bay Area stores in one convenient location. You can view photos from last year’s event here.

I’ll be tagging my favorite pieces on the racks, so you can shop my favorite picks too! So many of my clothes come from Crossroads, I’m super excited to be hosting this event with them.

In addition to the pop-up shop, there will be wine and refreshments. If you’re in the Bay Area on Thursday, you should come (it’s completely free to attend) and we can talk and shop and do other fun things!

Please RVSP to lholmes@crossroadstrading.com to get on the guest list and receive the details of the location.

Horseback Riding at Piiholo Ranch

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to go horseback riding while on vacation. I’d always bug my dad to take me, but he was never too keen. He finally obliged in Aruba when I was 9 years old. We had so much fun that day that we decided to do it again at Piiholo Ranch when we were in Makawao, Maui.

The ranch is located away from the coast and it’s really funny how much the topography of the island changes once you go inland. No more beaches, no more resorts, just rolling hills and open space.

Our rancher tour guide, Morgan. She had such an awesome spirit and personality, I loved her vibe!

It was such a fun day! I think my dad liked horseback riding even better than the sunrise at Mount Haleakala. If you’re ever in Maui, I highly recommend you check out Piiholo Ranch (they also have ziplining!). Who knows, maybe I’ll try ziplining next. Eek! I’m kind of scared of heights though. Have any of you guys gone horseback riding while on vacation?
