Summer is officially here. This month has been pretty jam packed full of traveling, reworking, and a good amount of sturdy work, but unfortunately I wasn't able to do so many outfit posts; something that will be changing very soon. I've filled up my recently added playlist on my iTunes with bundles of new music so I've got all I need for some productive work times ahead. I've been working on my jewelry side of business like a maniac! I've been so inspired lately to get my oh so young jewelry store off the ground and taking it's first steps. I've been beading, wiring, organizing, planning, jeweling like crazy and I love love love it. I'm currently stocking up for a big event that I'll be selling at, but I'll be adding some of it to my store for a quick preview before it all goes to happy homes! Otherwise I've been mostly trying to fall back into pace with a life that feels familiar to me. These past couple months have been an absolute whirlwind and I have to say I couldn't be more excited for some quiet, steady work only broken up by the occasional trip to that big beautiful ocean of mine (yes, I'm claiming it, but you can have it too!)
I was feeling withdrawals from not posting, so I did an easy outfit post in my own house. My little pup, Mika, had to show her face a little since it's her house too. This look is one that I love so much since it has such an indie/boho vibe. I first paired together a light crop top with some fun summer dolphin cut shorts. Then layered a tribal knit over and let one shoulder slouch for a laid back look. I then used a belt that is divinely handmade, and wrapped it like a head wrap to tie in the colors of the knit. Lastly finishing the look off with a bunch of accessories to really push the bohemian feel; I went with some brown ankle booties and a matching belt to tie in the browns, then adding some of my new jewelry from my new tribal line that will be released in weeks to come online. I'm wearing a couple necklaces, and some layered bracelets; my personal favorite is a rose quartz bracelet to keep the love coming my way all day.

Pinching my thighs, with sun on my spine
Feeling each and every ray of warmth, like fingertips beneath my skin
I took a deep breath and inhaled you in, along with this soft day
But was left alone with the all too quietness of my blank naked bones
Sometimes in the stillest of moments I think
I can feel the whole Earth down to the bottom of the deepest ocean
And then all the way to the limitless bounds of the atmosphere
Until the very fiber of my being has been twisted and spun
Turning into some figment choosing to exist neither here nor there
But rather in my own glinting world of impossible feats and unrealistic ideals 
of happily ever afters and a love that burns harder and stronger
Than anything we've ever known to be true

Feel the World Beneath Us Start to Slow

What I'm wearing
Necklace // Rowsden Jewelry
Heels // Forever 21 (heels)
Feeling the wind and a pull on her heart she flew through fields of wildflowers. Knowing all too well the expectations waiting outside this vast space, and how easily she could escape from it all. Time falls short in her mind, each time faces begin to turn. Life was a game that she felt had more innocence in the rules than the people around liked to let on. Somehow between the grime and dirt of everyday happenings she found solace within her own naive reality of sweet songs and love notes. Hidden underneath skies of tall grass in her little secret garden she thrived, building up a world in her head too lovely to exist in real life.
This Sunday just feels so calm and steady-which is the nicest contrast from my as-of-late-hectic reality. This song has been running through my head on repeat all morning so I thought I would share it. I'm feeling excited about this week because I am now in the countdown to my one year anniversary for my blog. It was one year ago that I found out my life was taking a very unexpected turn. My years and years of knowing I wanted to be a fine art photographer all changed around this time last year when I realized just exactly what I wanted to do-this fashion blog, my jewelry, fully commit to my art, just a big huge life full of creating and beauty. I was a little lost up until that point, working really hard at something I wasn't that passionate about. Now one year later I've created a business plan for myself, and not only that, I wake up everyday so absolutely in love with what I get to do. I feel like I've only barely gotten started and still have a lot to learn and long ways to go, and that thought makes me so happy! I feel so lucky to have found my passions, even though being an artist can be a rather stressful life, I wouldn't give it up for the world.
 Now really fast about the outfit- I got this dress from the American Apparel Warehouse down in LA, if you're ever in Downtown Los Angeles I highly recommend stopping here. I have wanted this dress for a year and when I finally went down to get one they only had teeny sizes-oh well! I do not normally condone buying clothes that are too small, but I had to make an exception-it was the last one..I Paired it with a simple brown belt to give it a little something more and then some brown heels that have the same criss cross laces similar to the back of the dress.
