With a background in painting, print making, weaving, welding and woodworking, Mary Meyer founded her clothing company in 2005. I was initially drawn to how simple and accessible her designs are, and the kind of pieces one could (cheesy but true!) completely dress up or down. They also look really comfortable, which is a plus.
The site is a grab bag of original and handmade clothing by her, as well as pieces (clothing, accessories, body products, and jewelry) from a range of other designers, including big wigs like Betsey Johnson and smaller (but equally rad) designers like Baggu. Here are some choice products that I fell in love with in particular.

We hosted my Mom, Grandma, two Aunts, one Uncle and one cousin for a late lunch of tacos and pomegranate margaritas. It was great to get everyone together to enjoy the sun breaks and the yard I've been busting my rear on.
The Huffington Post featured my Mom's Day table from two years ago (above) and that motivated me to put something fun together for this party too. We bought my Mom a gift certificate to Skye Nursery and I couldn't resist their amazing selection of succulents and tiny little teracotta pots.
I added a cake stand for height and some of my recent treasures (vintage apples, spotted eggs, and chess pieces) to add some unexpected fun to the table.

However, everything changed last week when I was hooked into stopping for a refreshing beverage on my way to the grocery store, thanks to an enticing sandwich board advertising a horcata iced latte. HOLY MOLY, do yourself a favor and spend your well-earned $3.00 on one. It'll revolutionize your coffee experience. I haven't dabbled in any of the cuisine at TNT yet, but if any of the food is half was delicious as their coffee I would imagine that it'll be just as sacred of an experience. Highly recommended!
