Live freely, but purposefully.

“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”

Last month I took a trip that seemed far too short. I visited Aspen, CO and am honestly surprised I came back home (but not without a few extra days added to my trip!) Believe me when I say Colorado has something aesthetically captivating about it. I mean, I’m still having withdrawals…

I’ll be back in Colorado soon. I can feel it.

Lia snapped some photos of me playing on the beach, which was where we called home for three days. We slept right under the stars on a single blanket in the sand. I woke up to the sound of waves crashing right next to me and the sun rising in front of me. It was incredible and the bug bites were beyond worth it.

I’ve been spending some time with these two lately. It certainly doesn’t suck.

When 1:45 a.m. on a Monday night rolled around we figured.. what better time for a spontaneous photo shoot? So, here we have some shots I took of Jessie in the middle of the night with a few street lamps as our light source. 

P.S. this girl is my soul sister

So glad to have this little gem of a lady here in Atlanta now. Shoots on shoots on shoots are in our future. I was recently promoted to Social Media Coordinator at my store (Free People Atlanta) aka get ready for many more posts to come. This was just a quick little shoot in a back alley of a music venue in Atlanta. Of course, any spontaneous shoot includes outfit changes in a car and improvised accessorizing, which happens to be a pretty accurate representation of my daily life.

the perfect poncho

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Thiiiiiis poncho is one of my new favorite pieces. An eco-friendly Ketzali product that was handmade in Guatemala by an artisan named Miguel Tax (it’s handwritten on the tag). The company also donates 5% of their wholesale profits to educational projects in Latin America. Gotta love good clothes for a good cause.

Channeling my inner Joplin x Nicks wearing pretty much all Free People as usual.
