the in the field opening was a smashing success and great fun. it was such a treat to see #sac1sac2 so stylishly merched and cozy with my spirit-sister heathermarie’s moccs!
the nytimes t mag gave a glowing review (people, it is time to retire the word hippie) and there’s a super nice feature in the new santa barbara magazine.
there’re practically 0 degrees of separation between ab and carrie and matt of denim revivalists imogene + willie. it’s an all around love fest. i too, covet the catherine jean and will be adding it to my denim pile post haste. here’s a little IG love. be sure to check their store when in nashville! a road trip is definitely planned for 2015.

la HMH: the farmer’s daughter 2
many moons ago, i was working on a commercial traveling throughout the washington state. the last leg of the journey took us to eastern washington, colfax/pullman area where i met heathermarie and the wonderful heaton family. we stayed in touch. she and her brothers are now the fourth generation wheat farmers and cattle ranchers, harvesting land originally homesteaded by their great-grandfather, working along side their parents, carmen and blake. in my book, that makes her the farmer’s daughter!
shortly after, she moved to LA where we became the bestest of friends, working as stylists, enjoying many epic road trips and adventures together. when heathermarie married and moved to mexico city (read all about my recent visit here and here,) she continued styling and designing, but she always returned home each summer with her family to participate in harvest and showing cattle – a tradition she continues with her sons.
several years ago, on one of her trips to the states, i noticed she was wearing some pretty awesome moccasins. she told me they were her modification of traditional styles found at her local market. a while later she sent me a pair of some traditional sandals she was ‘tweaking’.
i wore out both pairs. to. the. ground.
now you too, can get in on the HMH action here and here. moccasins and sandals are just the beginning. i’ll keep you posted…
