At this point we’ve finally peeled away those layers worn into the very beginning of summer, proving the uncertainty of this spring’s weather pattern. It’s hot as hell now, and the uncomfortably hot, humid east coast summer weather is finally here to stay. During the time of these photos, it was well into the spring months teetering between hot heat and 60 degree weather – an odd time for fashion decisions. Wrap skirts are ideal for shaky weather patterns. When it comes to heat resistance they are a great idea for letting in a nice breeze, yet long enough to protect from the sun’s harsh UV rays. Go for a light fabric such as polyester, viscose or light cotton. I found mine at my local vintage shop down the block for 8 bucks! What a steal. Walk into a thrift or consignment store of your choosing and do some digging! Sift through hangers and rifle through bins with an open mind and you never know what treasures you’ll find.

// TIP: Remember to slather that sunblock on your face and body. You should be adding this step to you face routine in the morning EVERYDAY – not just in the summer, but ALL-year round. Your face is exposed to the sun 365-days a year, and not to mention it hosts the most gentle and sensitive skin cells on your body. Enough of that random spiel/ lecture on skincare, but hopefully that encouraged some action on self-care. //

 

 

Nature inspires me most, therefore naturally my photos end up amongst forests or fields I happen upon through adventures with my partner in crime, Neivy, who photographs my beautiful images. Green is my favorite color and summer is the best time to see the most of green scenery.

This day we stopped by the side of the road to take photos near the woods, then drove further on and came upon fenced off marsh land surrounded by fields of grass. We pulled over to the side of the road to capture it, and enjoyed our time there.

At day’s end, we visited the local beach near Neivy’s house and caught the beautiful sunset that lit up the skies red and orange. My favorite days are those tranquil ones spent frolicking through and appreciating the beauty this Earth holds.

 

 

*** Please be mindful of our Earth by implementing daily habits that vitalizes sustainability and our planet’s healing. Start out with the small stuff: carry reusable water bottles, say no to straws and plastic utensils, cut out meat and dairy a few times a week, and shop second-hand more often. ***
