West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home, country roaaaads. Back track to Thursday night, before the sunburns, but after the delirious sleep-deprived road trip into West Virginia. After the 1am texts reading "Are you too excited to sleep too? 8am? Okay, maybe I'll pick you up at 8:30?", 9am rolls around & with 4 hours of sleep under our insomniac belts & we're on the road to All Good. Back to Thursday night, after a non-existent nap, laughing incoherently at our camp neighbors tripping their faces off, John Denver comes on a radio somewhere & Mike jumps up in the tent & starts dancing around like a monster springing out of a dark corner in a haunted house, with such energy that I didn't think could possibly exist at that moment in time. At that point I knew the next 3 days were about to become completely unhinged in the best way possible. 3 days of not caring if your phone died or if you were wearing a bra or what you were wearing at all. 3 days of being unable to form complete sentences from sleep deprivation but completely being able to understand every word each other was saying. 3 days of just turning off the fact that the outside world exists & just living completely in the moment with the company you're around & soaking in all the good vibes. I wish everyday could be so laissez faire. Until next time...

Let's take note of this moment in history where I wore non-black jeans & color. & let me stress real hard, no black. I'm dying a little. Too much, too soon maybe?

urban outfitters x swimwear part 3.


The last of my swimwear posts with Urban Outfitters, so I'll be keeping myself clothed around here for the foreseeable future. Heh. This bikini by Amuse Society is my absolute favorite mostly because of the little silver embellishments. Not cheaply flashy, but just enough for a little bit of added interesting texture. Moving onto some real shit, which is something I don't do enough of on here. I shot these in front of the fridge for a reason: body image. I'm sick to death of being told that we as females need to pick either the mac & cheese or the bikini. Living in NYC was probably the only time in my life where I ever felt so strongly uncomfortable in my own body. I'm a size four, & because I have an ass & hips that don't lie, I was judged in a negative way by a lot of people. That's as ridiculous as it sounds. A size four people. The way that the fashion industry & society as a whole views beauty is so beyond fucked. But a two is the new four & a four is the new eight. I don't know that this will ever necessarily change, but I think just speaking about it is something to start with. So while I'm, ahem, letting it all hang out so to speak, I'd like to say, just eat the damn mac & cheese & drink the cheap champagne if that's what makes you happy. Because I'm all about being on the pursuit of happiness these days.

Seester seester. Since these baby doll dresses were so similar, I thought it would be fun to shoot them side-by-side with my baby bird sister for this last road trip piece with Urban Outfitters. We did try taking some actually facing the camera, but every time, we would burst into uncontrollable laughter (check out a front-view of just mine over on Lookbook). Totally not working, we decided to walk towards the sunset all cute & shit. Though, I'd best describe our relationship as that of Daria & Quinn's: polar opposites, forever agreeing to disagree.

I swear this blog isn't turning into one big Urban Outfitters ad, but I really just can't turn down an opportunity to work with a brand I genuinely love. So UO is road trippin' this month & what better place for some road trip scenery than the countryside? When I saw these dandelions, it was a match made in sartorial heaven. This golden yellow dress reminds me of one I had as a kid & I mean, who doesn't love a 90's ditsy floral print?

urban outfitters x swimwear part 2.

UrbanOutfittersBlackWhiteLaceBikini

Some black & whites of some black & whites. I'm all about a good piece void of any color but not void of interesting details. This Blue Life x Urban Outfitters teeny bikini serves up a side of sexy with the lace detail on top combined with an overall sporty edge. Proof that simplicity doesn't always have to mean boring.
