I’d love for you to meet my dear friend, Jess (aka @jessbobess). If you’ve ever swooned over our fashion illustrations on TME (like this illustrated capsule wardrobe, or THIS), then you’re familiar with Jess’ art. She works out of a soft leather notebook (pictured), which is filled with illustrations, watercolors, pen and ink, quotes, lists (OMG the LISTS), spilled wine/coffee/whatever and is just one big mishmash of inspiration and spirit.
I can pour over the thing for hours. Such an amazing peek into a beautiful soul. (And go check out her blog – This Wild Precious Life. It’s a little bit of everything – art, style, humor, real life…I love it.)
Are you as obsessed with her Birkenstocks as I am? They’re the Birkenstock Yara Thong. She wears them everywhere with her quirky turquoise pedicure. Love.
Want to see a few of Jess’ latest doodles? Lately she’s been craving cool, patterned flats and quirky, colorful sneaks.
Just the thing to ease us into Fall, no?

Raines’ first day of school – in his new school – was today. It was gut wrenching watching him walk into class alone, head down, hands in his pockets. True to form, I came home and sobbed. Mamas, when does the whole crying-on-the-first-day-of-school stop? So far, I’ve done it every damn year. (And mind you, it’s ME, not Raines.) But he was totally fine when I picked him up this afternoon, and is making friends. “Mom, I feel too shy to say, ‘will you be my friend’ to someone….but I feel really lucky when someone says that to me.”
Oh, my heart.
