I absolutely adore my new denim button-up. I've been waiting one for so long now, but I could never find one that fit me the right way until now. I think it'll be a great staple in my wardrobe from now on because I don't think I will ever tire of denim. Also, this is the first time I've worn this ikat skirt, I'm not sure why, it's a great fitted skirt with a great summer pattern. It's been sitting in my closet for over a year now, but for some reason as I was buying my denim shirt I had this skirt in mind. I think that textures and colors work well.

So, today I went to the Des Moines Art Center with my friend Lauren, we wandered around checking out the various new exhibitions. I really enjoyed seeing Midwest Pressed's art on the walls too. I'm a fan of how they utilized screenprinting to create these colorful, fantastic works. I like the gesture line qualities and the layering effects they use. Also, I was really excited to see the new exhibition, Pyllida Barlow: Scree. I enjoyed the large sculptural installations that seemed to take over and engulf parts of the art center. I love the raw materiality and textures of the works. Just breathtaking. You can read more about the exhibition here.

I think, if you live in Des Moines, taking photos within one of the cairns is pretty cliche. This doesn't stop me from doing it of course. Anyways, this piece in the photos is called "Three Cairns" by artist, Andy Goldsworthy.

What would you wear with a denim button-up shirt?
