High Tide

Looking out over lush marshes, The sun is shining, and we are totally alone in the wild.  
Mon Chaton & I took a weekend getaway to Moraine State park to photograph the regatta/craft market for my internship. What a wonderful trip! We hiked through the misty morning and by afternoon the sun was blazing.  We snapped these shots on a beautiful blue stretch of the water.  The the lake was at low-tide, the grass was high and the waterbugs and bullfrogs sounded in the distance. It was a heavenly little escape from the day-to-day.   Cooler winds are drifting in and we are entering the transitional peak of the year.  Change with the season and embrace the energy of autumn.

Sunset & Moonlight ☾

- Caught between a burning sunset and a mexican moon ||  In the Half-light of dusk -
An evening of exploration ahead of me and hours of indulging in the sun-drenched beaches & iridescent waters behind me.  What a day.  But, in the spirit of savoring the sunlight, I was off... out into the streets of the south. I had a desire to scour the city, capture all of its lively spirit with my camera, and for family& friends back at home-- gather the most unique souvenirs. We even had time to grab a drink during the rainshower!
Silk trousers:  tight white lace top : hemp-knit fedora. This look chose it self, Light, Flowy, Free- perfect for the night unexpected. A dash of silver coated my arms & crystal (for luck) round my neck. My mum and I headed  to the vibrant city, where the shops meet the sand: searching for the best of the local vendors. The night was as wonderful as it was unplanned. I think that stepping away from the norm, and allowing the evening to unfold is the key to making positive//perfectly unpredictable memories.

Red, White, Blue is in the Sky

Summer's in the air and
Baby, heaven's in your eyes.

Late summer// Early Autumn-- a perfectly hot sun overhead & an empty schedule. I leave my summer clothes unpacked for the first weeks of autumn for occasions like this... But don't get me wrong I  always keep a denim jacket on hand just for the evening air.  An afternoon of antiquing calls for something old and something blue: like this navy stitched vest, paired with these vintage high-waisted sailor shorts. My favorite vintage accessories are ones that have been passed on to me, like my grandpap's  well-worn bandana. Stay on the search for those statement pieces from yesteryear.
