COUNTRY GRUNGE.


i've been wanting to change up my blog posts and include elements other than photos of myself. i try to include music whenever possible, but i've had the idea to add aesthetically pleasing photos mixed in with my outfit posts- specifically art that i love. this time, it's art by no one other than my insanely talented boyfriend- jesse draxler. you should definitely take a moment to check out his website. he inspires me constantly by all the pretty things he creates.

so, i'm visiting my parents for a couple days in central california. it's so much easier to photograph out here in the vast open space... last night i was laying in the backyard while watching the meteor shower (i didn't see much, but it was still beautiful). the stars here are literally breathtaking at night... the night sky completely engulfed me and i found myself incapable of looking anywhere but up. something like that can definitely bring on an existential crisis- it made me feel so small and meaningless. but anyway, it was the little break from the world that i think everyone should get once in awhile.
