Sun Chasers

Free People Heart Beat Printed Tunic | Jay.Nicole Western Choker

There we were, in the middle of a race with the sunset. Stuck on a seemingly endless freeway with no exits in sight. With a good song blaring, the beach in our dust, and the feeling of sand on our skin we were determined to find somewhere we could be wild and free. We pulled off the first exit we found, took one right turn, and stumbled upon a enchanting meadow of wildflowers. Couldn't have been more perfect if we tried. Despite the signs that read "No stopping." we pulled our car onto the grass and stayed there in the field until the stars were in sight.

First off, my apologies for being a terrible blogger this past month. I swore I wasn't going to let my full time internship or the move to a strange city affect my blogging habits but some things are just out of our control. So far I've been having an incredible time here in Philly and I've been loving every second of it but there will be a more in depth post about that later. 
For now I want to talk to about home. These photos were taken before I left Portland in my lovely little apartment that I miss so dearly and will be back to in just three short weeks. However, looking at these photos don't make me sad or anxious to get back. These photos make me happy because I know I'm going back. It's going to be hard as hell to leave all the amazing friends I've made here and to go back to school and retail after having gotten to experience my dream job. But it just feels good to know that I have somewhere to go back to. Home does't have to be a place. Sometimes home is person or feeling. All I know is that I have one and I feel so lucky.

Todays blog post features two new things; black and white photos (courtesy of the lovely Jess) and my forehead. The whole reason I got bangs in the first place is because I hated my forehead and I hated the shape of my head without them, just stupid little things but enough to make me perminatley fixated on one hairstyle. I love my bangs too but sometimes they just get in the way. Moral of the story is that we all have insecrities and we all do things to try and lessen the sinking feeling of imperfection but at the end of the day you are who you are. Someone once told me to never point out something about someone else if it's not something they can fix in 10 minutes and I actually think thats really good advice for ourselves too. If you can fix it then fine go for it but if it's a part of who you are then you have to learn how to be comfortable in your own skin. 
Without that we have nothing else.

That American Philly Life

Hello my loves! Here is my first photo shoot since the move to Philly. I'm still getting used to the new city but I'm loving every second of getting lost in familiar places and exploring every little corner. I can't believe my time here is already half way finished, I still feel like I just barely arrived. I'm going to take in everything I can while I'm still here and just be young, wild, and free.

Vintage Vibes

Okay before my mom starts having a panic attack, these are temporary tattoos. Truthfully, I've been really wanting more tattoos (and have actually gotten one more since these photos were taken) so I bought a bunch of temporary tattoos to satisfy the need until I'm completely sure of what I want. What I always know I want though is more Novella Royale. I saw this dress on Threadsense and decided I couldn't live without it. I actually wore it to my first day at my Free People internship here in Philly. Which, by the way, has been amazing so far. I'm still getting used to Philly as a place to live but seriously loving the office. I'm actually taking over the snapchat tomorrow so be sure to follow us (freepeople) on snapchat to see a day in my life as an intern.

Can you tell my mind is all over the place right now?
