Thoughts On the Sky

Living Life Creatively, Spiritual Practice, ThoughtsCait SherrickComment
LK-ThoughtsOntheSky.jpg

I’m not exactly sure why, but I’ve been noticing the sky a lot more lately.

Blue skies, cloudy skies, rain clouds, sunsets. Light, dark, blue, gold.

I sit, I scan every detail, I think about absolutely nothing other than that moment + I quickly snap photos, usually while driving...safely of course.

It feels more + more introspective every time. Like I’m moving closer toward myself + also away from the things I no longer need. Like I’m incredibly self-aware + also strongly connected to something larger. Like I’m such a small part of the universe + also the entire universe all at once.

So much contrast in such small moments.

So much humanity in such quick moments.

So much emotion in such beautiful moments.

Maybe it’s the colors, maybe it’s the space, maybe it’s simply me becoming more like myself.

More like my light.

More like the sky.

I might not be sure why, but I’ve noticed + that’s all the why I need.

3 Ways to Wear Linen Overalls

StyleCait SherrickComment
LK-3WaystoWearLinenOveralls.jpg

I've been on the hunt for olive green linen overalls for years. Two years to be exact. So when I went to Target to buy mascara, decided to casually browse the clothes section first (c’mon ladies, I know you do it too) + saw these, I grabbed them without a second thought. I tried them on to be sure, texted my sister, texted my best friend, instagram storied them (yep, I know you do all that too) + eventually bought them after finally grabbing my mascara.

I’ve been wearing them any chance I can get for a variety of summer events + outings, so I thought I’d feature them here + share a few ways you can easily style them too.

Don’t have olive green linen overalls? You can totally use these same combinations with any pair of overalls, shorts, jeans or even skirts. Don’t have a striped shirt? Try a different pattern. Don’t have any LK jewelry? Wear something you already have.

The whole point of my style posts is to offer you a fresh way to look at your clothes. Old or new. Trendy or not. Take what you need, adapt what you want, leave the rest.

How to Clean Brass Jewelry

LK-HowToCleanBrassJewelry.jpg

Brass. We all love it for its gold tones, light weight + budget friendly qualities. It's an easy, artistic alternative to gold...until it tarnishes, right?

I hear you.

Tarnished brass jewelry doesn't bother me as much as it bothers some. I like how a patina gives it character, makes it unique + shows that you love it enough to wear it often, but I definitely prefer when it looks fresh, shiny + gold.

More than one person has asked me how to clean it over the years, so I thought it was time to create a tutorial of my own + post it here for ease of access. This tutorial is quick, easy + it requires only two standard kitchen ingredients that you probably already have at home.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 a lemon

  • 1 tsp of baking soda*

*adjust according to juiciness of lemon

INSTRUCTIONS

// Squeeze 1/2 a lemon into a small bowl.

// Add 1 tsp of baking soda. It will fiz A LOT, but it will settle down as you continue to stir.

// Keep stirring until you have a paste. Add more lemon juice/baking soda, if need be.

// Apply the paste to your brass jewelry with a soft cloth or your fingers + rub. I mostly used my fingers + rubbed until I saw a noticeable difference in color.

// Re-apply + repeat as necessary.

// Rinse off the paste + dry your jewelry.

// For an added shine, buff your jewelry with a soft polishing cloth.
