{I'm obsessed with the wash of these shorts, the stitched detailing at the seams, & the lace scalloped pockets!}
lace blouse, vintage 
I got my septum pierced! I've wanted this for years.

Good morning & happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is doing well & if in a sun soaked area, I hope you're taking every chance to
enjoy the heat {just as I've been doing}!

Last week, the sun was at it's peak of the day {as was the heat}, so my friend
Miguel & I made the wise decision to drive up Mount Tamalpais, where it would be +10 degrees warmer than everywhere else, adventure 'round and take photographs.
Met with a mild to nonexistent breeze and blistering light,
the two of us had a bittersweet time, enjoying the view and silence, loathing the heat wave.
Thankfully I was wearing my new garments from Free People, which saved me from an all-embracing death.
I can envision myself wearing this outfit on//in different occasions & settings: from a festival weekend to a day at the beach,
I'd don this mix most anytime, anywhere. Huge thank you to Free People for the rad lace top and jean shorts!

{life updates & such}
There are just a few weeks left of classes for my spring semester, & once school is out, I'll be spending most time in nature.
I'll be out to run, hike, swim, tan {sleep, read}, canoe {& kayak} and hopefully camp!
Whether it be with friends, my love or myself, the goal this summer is to do all of the above and more.
The more: spending as much time as I can creating. While school is in session, I find myself creatively deprived & unmotivated,
not having enough time to focus on the arts I love.
By taking time to draw, photograph, write and blog this summer {yielding a bounty of accomplishments}, I feel my upcoming semester at Sonoma State will be greeted with excitement & ambition to grow and learn all I can.
