A storm is settling in, so I tied my beloved jean jacket around my waist to add visual interest and texture to my skirt, and to act as a butt shield. No exposed underwear for me today.

If you’re someone who likes skirts or dresses with pockets, then I highly recommend a thin jacket tied around your waist this spring and summer. The pockets on my jacket hung perfectly on my side, and helped hold my guitar pick and remote inbetween shooting photos. It was a convenience I didn’t expect to have. Aw yeah, functional style.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Maybe.

I’m looking forward to cleaning out my closet this spring. I plan to give up certain pieces, such as this jacket, to make way for new styles this year. I like to feel like I got enough wear out of every item in my closet before I decide to give it up. I want to buy more clothes that are high quality, and versatile between seasons.

TL;DR Spring is coming.

Absolution Calling

Let me tell you a little fact about myself: I love Incubus. I have been a fan ever since I saw their video for “Drive” on a VH1 music video countdown when I was 11. My brother gave me their album Morning View for Christmas that year, and thirteen years later, that album title inspired the name of this blog. And now they’re coming out with a new song tomorrow.

No matter how much I start to love other bands and new music, Incubus will always be my “If I were stuck on a desert island and could only listen to one band” choice. Their lyrics inspire my writing, and Brandon Boyd is still the most beautiful person I have ever seen.

If you’re unfamiliar with Incubus, I recommend listening to Wish You Were Here or Stellar.

Leather and lace

I have a lot on my mind at the moment. An opportunity presented itself this week and I’ve begun the process for a possible career change. Nothing is guaranteed, and I am worrying about insignificant details. There’s a lot to be thankful for, so why am I so stressed out?

Layered tops, layered thoughts.

And then it rained.

I may need to trade these wedges for a pair of rain boots, and this dress for a pint of ice cream and Friends on Netflix.

I’m still struggling with my new lens. My viewfinder makes it look like everything is clear until I review my photos on my computer. Do any of you take your own photos? How do you focus on yourself? I’ve seen some people set an object on the ground where you’ll stand, focus the camera and then just stand where the object was.

Or I could ask my boyfriend to take my photohahahahahaha. Yeah, I couldn’t even finish typing that. As if that would work.

“How many photos do we need to take?!”

As many as it takes to not look like a drunk oyster in 15 consecutive shots.
