the end of AUGUST

All I can say is the end of August snuck up on me faster than I could have ever imagined. My world suddenly became overwhelmed with CHANGE. And change isn't typically a word that I like to deal with. Change is scary. But it's also exciting! 

August was a huge roller coaster for me. My emotions and feelings have been everywhere lately. The month started out pretty rough and slow and the days seemed to drag on and on. But then things started picking up and I started getting decorations ready for college and focusing on doing my "last activities" with my friends and family which really helped make it better. But then I realized that it was my last time riding my bike with my little brother to watch the sunset every night. It was my last late night car drive with my older brother. My last time swimming in our pool, playing the piano every day, and my very last blog post with my sister as my photographer for a little bit.. And wow that was hard to think about! Luckily I'm not too far though and I can come back home and do these things on the weekends with them/ when I have a break from school. 

This past weekend I ended up moving away from home for the first time. I don't think there is much to prepare you for something like that. The first day almost didn't feel real. I thought I was going to be going back home with my family at the end of the day. We are finally getting settled in and it's starting to feel more like my own little home. And GUYS. IT. IS. SO. CUTE.

Just wait for my next post coming up shortly, it's going to be all about my apartment makeover. I hope you guys love it as much as I do because it was the only thing that was getting me excited for the big move to be honest. 

But, it's such a fun experience. This week has been completely crazy. So many things can happen in ONE DAY here. I feel like I hardly have any free time right now. But I absolutely love it. I didn't think that I would love it this much to be honest! 

Life is good. College is good. You are good. Thank you so much for reading. I love you all so much! 

In this post I'm wearing my turtle-neck tee from H&M with my pink maxi skirt from White House Black Market. I just paired it with some AE sandals and my boho necklace from Express. I definitely used to wear turtle necks when I was little and call-me-strange but I am SO happy that they're coming back in style and are finally cute to wear. Too bad I'm a broke college student now because all of the clothes that are finally 'in style' at the moment are my FAVORITE. Like yes, bring back these updated versions of the 90's please.

I'm really excited for the rest of this semester. I can't wait to see what else happens in this year. It's going to be full of change and new things constantly but I think it'll be the perfect way to grow. I'll keep you all updated!

 Hope you enjoy this last post with my cute sister Jensyn from Stripes In Bloom <3

Until next time,

the other side of GRUNGE..

gotta love new adventures!

I had another chance to work with my buddy @findlayphoto and have some fun with another post. Both of us are moving away for college and things are about to get crazy! So we had to get one last shoot done in the city. Funny story about this post is we were supposed to go to a different location but it was under construction and so we had to improvise and come up with something new and I am so happy with how these turned out.

These were taken at the Kilby Court in Salt Lake which is a hot spot for teenagers and small bands to come play and perform at. I loved taking pics on the iconic Kilby Court couch which has the sign right above it.

This post is more of an artistic look and has a grungy vibe which is a little new to me! But I am excited to break out of my shell and try more than one look for my blog. These are just so fun! I say, "why limit yourself?" I believe that we can do whatever we put our minds to. And nothing hurts in trying something new. There are so many opportunities and options out there in the universe that you don't have to limit yourself or define yourself as one thing. I am not "just a blogger." I am so. much. more.

This week's post I'm wearing a wool vest over my cropped star tee. Paired with my high waisted magenta shorts and my black booties. I added my bullet necklace to tie it all together.

Speaking of new adventures, I mentioned earlier that I'm moving away to COLLEGE! Which is incredibly exciting! yet terrifying.... However, in order to keep my scared feelings at ease, I've been making a lot of DIY projects for decorating. And I'm telling you, these decorations are to DIE for. Once I move in and get all settled, I will be making a special DIY post on my blog to show you how I created my look! So keep an eye out for that because I am SO EXCITED!!!

I'm saying goodbye to bad thoughts, scared feelings, and limiting myself from new opportunities/chances.
Now I'm saying HELLO to all of these new adventures heading my way.

Thanks for checking out my blog! You guys rock!!

not all who wander are lost but i'm getting pretty close..

Well! This is not my typical pose in the backyard with shorts and a tee shirt post haha! This last week I had the opportunity to go out to a grassy field in the middle of a canyon and take some artistic pics with a friend of mine. 

I've been wanting to show this outfit on the blog for a while now. My sweater is a high-low crop top knitted sweater and it comes with a hood! How cool is that?? I hardly ever wear this shirt but after this shoot I definitely think I'll wear it more often. I threw a crochet vest over top to really give it a bohemian vibe. My pants are a whole other story! They're the longest pants I've ever owned and I still trip on them in my heels... But they go perfectly with this sweater because I literally have to hike my pants up to my waist in order to walk in them. 

I also have a ton of little accessories that I threw on and off throughout the day. I love having so many different accessories that are so easy to mix and match/pair with whatever. It's so fun to create a whole new look with just a few simple changes.

Life is getting even CRAZIER. Sorry I fell off the face of the earth for a bit there. I feel so lame for saying I'll get better at getting posts up but it seriously just depends on how much free time I have during the month. Which is not a lot these days! I'm getting ready for fall semester, moving out, working, saving up, and lots and lots of new and EXCITING adventures coming up that I can't wait to share with you!!! 

thanks for staying faithful readers!
