tell me what's on your mind

(unif tank from wasteland, jbrand jeans, boots c/o pipers shoe parlor)

it's been a while, i know. after a flu, er visit, ear infection scare, hearing loss scare, tonsillitis scare, and mono scare, i'm (almost) recovered. it may have triggered a quarter-life reevaluation of myself. i think about my career, my friends, and what i want to do a lot more these days. and my style has also been affected. (oh and a few new tattoos showed up.) this was a fun shoot to do with sam one weekend because it's just me hanging out in my apartment with my dog. wearing my standard uniform of boots, jeans, and some kind of ragged top.

i wanted to start back into things with this post because i've decided to share more about my life and interests with you. 2013 is going to be my year of adventure. i recently decided this. i'm moving my ex-boyfriend down to LA in a couple of weeks and then returning again to see burgerama. i also bought tickets to see lou reed the day before my birthday in april. and i'll be taking a road trip to austin psych fest at the end of april. pretty stoked to turn my year around after a pretty salty beginning.

more pics below as well as a song from one of my favorite bands on regular rotation.

Allah-Las - Tell Me (What's On Your Mind)


oh you pretty things

i took a long overdue vacation last week, and what better place to go than my favorite city full of some of my favorite people? so much food. so much drinking. so much shopping. shot guns. drove an atv. saw amazing friends. it was incredibly fun and just what i needed to step away from reality - even if it was only for a new york minute. 

did you catch all the pics documenting my trip on instagram?

i can't believe it's been something like two months since my last post. so much has changed, and during those months i took a lot of time to reflect. work took over my life, and i'm only beginning to develop a better work/life balance. it's a challenge when you really want what you do to be successful. threadflip is amazing and i'm excited to see what the future holds for the company. i also ended a 6+ year relationship with my boyfriend and best friend. there are no hard feelings and we'll always be close friends, for which i am so grateful. i'm looking at these changes as an exciting turn of events where who knows what's next. life has chapters, and at the quarter-life, i'm ready to start the next one.

even my interest in clothes has seen a bit of a shift. dresses. yep. i'm wearing them a lot more these days. maybe i've gotten lazy? maybe i'm over the overstyled thing? whatever it is, i'm enjoying this simplicity.
