Day 18 of Dress the rainbow

Mindy Gledhill in Dress the Rainbow

Day 18 of Dress the Rainbow in bright yellow with my pal, the one and only Mindy Gledhill, an indie singer/songwriter, whose music will leave you swinging and twirling. You might remember her from when I did her sets for her album, Pocket full of Poetry, and from the background music to some of my classes. Needless to say, I’m a big Mindy fan. I’ve gotten to know her more and more since living in Provo and I admire her work ethic and desire to live an authentically full life and it comes across in her lyrics, videos, and mannerisms.

Mindy has had some exciting projects on her hands! First of all, she remodeled a vintage tour bus, which we are posing against, and took it on a cross country tour with her family in tow. Watch a new web series about it at ulive.com. It’s so dreamy!

More recently, she announced the upcoming release of her new electro-pop duo with @dustingledhill called “Hive Riot” (@hiveriot), which I’m totally thrilled about. The album is set to be released in the fall. Stay tuned and make sure to follow her here.

See more pics of her awesome tour bus below!

Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow and This Week

Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow with Hedley and Bennett

Day 12 of Dress The Rainbow with Hedley and Bennett

We’re already on Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow and it’s orange red in my new Hedley & Bennett apron. Have you heard of them? Ellen Bennett started the company after working in several restaurants in LA and noticing the mundane aprons, she set out on an apron crusade. I heard her speak at Martha Stewart’s American Made conference in November in NYC and the girl is pure joy. She loves aprons and life! Call me a convert. Mind you, it doesn’t convert me to cooking, but I’m not opposed to going Amy Sedaris style walking around town in an apron. And a pet bunny on a leash.

Day 4 of Dress the Rainbow

Dress the Rainbow with Damask Love

Have 4 of #DressTheRainbow is with the lovely Amber of Damask Love, who I first met at Alt Summit a couple of years ago. With her fun, colorful, crafty aesthetic, I knew she had to be a part of the project. I was thrilled when I realized that she would be at Alt in Salt Lake City in June. It was meant to be! Of course, she chosen hot pink, her go to color and it took a trip to a downtown adult novelty store to make it happen.
Hint: if you are looking for colorful walls, always look in the seedy parts of town! They do not disappoint!

Dress the rainbow

Dress the Rainbow with The House That Lars Built

Well friends, I’m off on another color adventure. After #CraftTheRainbow and #LetterTheRainbow and most recently #PopsicleTheRainbow, I decided I couldn’t get enough. Or I am nuts. Both really. So I decided to start…#DressTheRainbow. With the help of some color loving friends, I’m taking my color experiments to some colorful walls with a handful of bright frocks by my side for the next 50 days! It’s a large undertaking but there are colors to wear and walls to be discovered!

I’m inviting you to join in with me on this fun project. Every day for the next 50 days I’ll post a pic wearing a color of the rainbow against the same color background. And YOU can do the same thing too by selecting any color of the rainbow and finding a wall near you and snapping a shot and posting it to Instagram where I’m hosting the project. It’s been really fun to discover colorful walls in my hood. Warning: once you start, you can’t stop! You’ll be identifying colorful walls from here on out! Just post your photos with #DressTheRainbow and @houselarsbuilt.

At the end of the 50 days I’ll choose a winner who will receive a $500 gift card to Asos, my favorite place to buy colorful clothing.

You ready??? Alright, get, set…#DressTheRainbow!

Letter the rainbow

letter the rainbow 12

After the success of #CraftTheRainbow I got to thinking, how I can do something as rad that will challenge me creatively and allow my audience, you swell people here, to join in on the fun? I immediately thought of hand letterer Becca Clason, whose work I’ve loved and admired for the past few years. She recently moved to Utah and I thought this was my chance to do something awesome. We came up with #LetterTheRainbow, where everyday for 2 weeks we would Instagram words out of craft supplies. Becca did the lettering and I did most of the styling. We invited everyone to join in and letter their own craft supplies, and once again, you brought it! Check out the hash tag #LetterTheRainbow on Instagram to see all the entries.

But first! Here’s a collection of all 14 posts we did. They’re arranged according to how many likes you all gave them on my feed.
