hurricane isaac at the 11th street diner.

as luck would have it, the day i planned my final photo shoot for school ended up being the day hurricane isaac was the craziest. luckily my model was my friend leah, and my photog was (of course) matt, so we made the trek to the 11th street diner to shoot!

i have to say, the whole experience was really inspiring! i wanted to add a bit of edge to my typical feminine style. the diner was such a beautiful backdrop, and the lighting peeking in through the raindrops outside created such a lovely effect. + leah was amazing! i guess my outfit kind of matches those in the shoot-- a little dark :)

i will post the shoot photos tomorrow! xo!

when there's a hurricane...

i have a love for dreary days, so i threw on my coziest sweater (that i've been saving all summer for a day like this), and matt and i did fun things on the first day of hurricane isaac. we went thrifting, sifted through old records and then grabbed ice cream with my brother. luckily it wasn't really raining yet, it was overcast and the sky was beautifully grey.

i hope all of you on the east coast survived unscathed ❤

never think of never, let this spell last forever.

dancing in the desolate streets of downtown miami.
dreaming of buying a loft apartment in the building i am standing next to.
daring to wear a floral skirt for the second time this week on here (oh no!)
delighting in the thought of my trip to NYC in a few weeks.

❤ happy weekend!

if i was unfathomably wealthy, i would spend every penny traveling the world wearing my top 10 vintage pieces with matt by my side. that is all i really feel like talking or thinking about right now :)

it's no good unless it's real.

one of my favorite small businesses on the florida coast is carnival confections in sebastian. the entire place is shaped like a carnival tent, and they have yummy muffins and cupcakes! i've been on a floral skirt binge, and all i really wanted was a red velvet cupcake to match my skirt :)

last night i was looking back through some old e-mails matt and i sent eachother when he lived in nicaragua and i lived in NYC, and they made me so teary eyed/happy.

life feels good to me when:
♥ i remember why matt and i fell in love and how worth it being apart for almost a year was. because now we get to build an entire exciting life together :)
♥ my career feels like it is heading in the right direction and going to work doesn't feel like a job
♥ the people closest to me are all inspiring & good people.
♥ my family is healthy
♥ there are goals and dreams ahead of me that i can work toward and achieve. reaching goals is the best feeling.

i just love making happy life lists. try it! sometimes it can make you realize how good things really are :)
