Tomboy Style + Pop-Up Update
via Tomboy Style
One of my favorite style blogs, Tomboy Style, recently launched a brilliant grid system for figuring out your tomboy style. This is truly dead-on and has some great inspiration points. Are you the American or the Import? I am all over the place on this grid and it's fun to mix and match!

Speaking of mixing (nice transition, right?), we have moved back our Bows + Arrows Pop-up event to Thursday, September 29th from 7-10pm. The original date was September 7th, but between the extreme heat and other craziness, we are moving our date back in hopes of cooler weather and also Style Week in Austin. We hope you can join us, as it should be a killer party with an art opening as well.

Canoe at Dog & Pony
Canoe at D &P
We're so thrilled to have Canoe at the wonderful shop


located at 2712 Guadalupe St and 27th here in Austin, TX. We've been hatching plans with Star, the fabulous owner, for a few months, so it's great to see it realized. Dog and Pony is our only permanent retail location for Canoe, and we'll be stocking the rack with a mix of heritage clothing for men and women. Check out all the clothes in person Tuesday-Saturday, noon-7pm and Sunday, noon-5pm.

Some outdoor inspiration
Succulent vertical wall
We are wrapping up the last major renovations on the inside of our house, so naturally my mind is jumping to the outside renovations. Our summer of 100+ weather means not much gardening, but when it does cool down I am putting in succulents, lots and lots of succulents.

concrete recliners
These photos are all from Flora Grubb, my absolute favorite gardening store. Last Christmas I took a trip out there, and I still revisit those images daydreaming about having giant concrete recliners in our yard. I would mind having a massive wooly pocket room divider of plants hanging from the ceiling, either.

Tooling again
Working on new prototypes
This week I am back to tooling, working on new prototypes for the Fall collection of Canoe. The leather I am using is much heavier and I've got some killer hardware and new shapes. Can't wait to show you more, but for now, here's what the studio looks like when I'm knee deep in making. It's been several weeks of drawing, so nice to be seeing ideas come to life with leather.
