Wearing: Mowgli Surf

Super stoked on this swimsuit Mowgli sent over. Reminds me of Jenny Lewis' airbrushed rainbow suit!

Earlier this month, the awesome folks at Mowgli Surf let me pick out some complimentary items from their spring and summer collections. You can find a selection of their items at Urban Outfitters, and the full catalog at their site. Standing by their chosen slogan "the enemy of average," Mowgli Surf's clothes are happy, loud 'n proud, and adventurous. I'll be sporting their bright colors and wild patterns all summer long. Life should be fun. Clothing should be fun. Mowgli Surf makes happy clothing for active lifestyles, perfect for all the outdoor adventures I've been clocking in this summer. Their garments are made in California, and almost all hand-dyed or printed. Really dug this interview with the twin brother founders over at the UO blog.

Below are some of the items I picked up, and some favorites I'm still drooling over.

70s Rock Stars In Their Parents' Homes

David Crosby

I've been so fortunate to spend a whole week with my parents this holiday. It's an interesting feeling, being a grownup back in your childhood home. So many details are exactly the same as they were when I was a kid. I'll always be their child, even while sneaking vegetables onto their plates and trying to stealthily scoop up the check before they can. No matter how old we get, we'll always be kids to our parents. That fact is frustrating as a teenager, but becomes more endearing to me the older I get. (See SNL's "Back Home Baller.")

From the LIFE archives, and found via DailyMail: In 1971, photographer John Olson photographed some of the most influential musicians of the time in their parents' and grandparents' homes:

Bone music: Soviet-era bootleg X-ray pressings

Around 1946-1961 in the USSR when certain records, say, rock n roll or jazz were banned sounds, resourceful audiophiles salvaged used x-rays from hospital waste bins and pressed the contraband music into the thick exposed film.
