Bloom

After quite a few days of being cut off from everyone & everything, I'm back from my mini vacation! I spent three nights of last week out at Bodega Bay with two of my closest friends and had such a blast. Our campsite was right on the beach, it was perfect! After setting up our tent the first day, we dropped everything & headed out to lounge on the beach. The whole trip was phenomenal: hiking, climbing rocks, tide pooling, sleeping in the sand, chasing waves, flower picking, sitting round the fire, story telling, wine sipping and star gazing filled each day, which made time fly by. Even though the trip was short lived, I enjoyed every moment & am so glad I was able to take a few days to relax and reanalyze life. Being surrounded by nature is one of my favorite things, so I felt totally at home while layered up in sweaters, scarves and extra socks chatting under the stars till the late hours of the night.
Below is an outfit post totally unrelated to my camping trip. These floral jeans are so damn rad, and even better than I expected them to be! For future wearing I plan on pairing them with even more floral (ohh yeaah) for a crazy eclectic/overwhelmingly loud look. The more people I can blind, the better.
I titled this post after Beach House's newest album, Bloom. If you enjoy dreamy, hypnotic music then I'd suggest taking a listen! I've had it on repeat ever since it came out earlier this year; it's by far one of my favorite albums I've listened to this summer.

felt laptop case: c.o. koshka / gold watch: michael kors / bracelets: asos, h&m / rings: vintage, h&m, jewelmint
How sick is this felt laptop case? It was gifted to me by Koshka awhile back, and I've been using it to lug my giant MacBook around school ever since. I love that it's made out of a single piece of felt and made in Japan! The quality is insane, and I'm so glad I was able to find a stylish yet durable laptop case. 

Happy Monday everyone!

    1. Thank you! The weather around here is sporadic, so one day it's hot and the next it's freezing.
