Into The Ocean, Into The Sun

Boy, life has gotten so hectic that I'm finding it hard to keep up with my usual posting schedule! It's kind of sad when you're too drained to even edit pictures...haha. I also don't have as much time to take pictures, so you may see fewer posts for now, unfortunately. It's hard to squeeze in photoshoots in the 20-30 minutes of free time I have between things during the week. I pretty much live for the weekends when I can have days like the one I had when I took these pictures. It was gorgeous out and I felt like we could finally go hang out at the beach without being freezing. SPRING'S FINALLY HERE, YOU GUYS.




Weekends are for lazing around outside and taking in as much fresh air and sunlight as you least for me anyway. I live for being able to travel around and enjoy the outdoors. I envy those travel bloggers who make a living by just seeing the world and writing about it. That is my dream life - to be paid to travel. I really need to look more into travel credit cards so that I can start earning miles and hopefully be able to earn enough for some cool vacations! It can be overwhelming trying to pick one, though. Just another thing on my list!





Weekends are also for sleeping in and then waking up to play iPhone games for an hour as you lay around in bed. Saturdays are my favorite because they are usually spent sleeping in and then galavanting and spending the day with Chris and sometimes our friends. Plus they end with the promise of another day of sleeping in and relaxing.





Nadia came down to hang out for the day (she lives a good drive away), which is always fun since we don't get to see each other enough! Whenever we visit each other, we always try to take each other to places that the other hasn't been yet. I had decided that this local beach would be nice since the weather was great, so Chris and I met up with her there. It was so nice to sit on the rocks and enjoy the view, the warmth, and the smell of the ocean.





We ended up heading to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants for dinner later on. I can never get enough burritos. Ever. Chris and I make our own crunchwraps every now and then and it's one of my favorite meals. I always feel like I'm going to explode afterwards, but it's worth it. It would be a crunchy, spicy, delicious death.





This red hat is one of the hats I got at the vintage show I was talking about in my last post. I love wearing red, but red accessories are especially fun because they can add just the right amount of pop to an outfit. Plus, it's an essential color for a nautical scheme. :)

Easter is coming up, and I am planning on doing some baking this weekend. I am always called upon to bake a dessert for family holidays. I'm thinking about making Easter-themed cupcakes this year. I rarely make cupcakes, so it'll be a nice change for me. I was originally going to make a cake, but ain't nobody got time for that. Cupcakes are much easier, so cupcakes it is.


  1. Dude, time is hard to find! And those 20-30 minute photo sesshes usually have an extra hour or so into them just getting set up and at your location and putting everything back in place. I feel your feels. These pics are incredible though, like aaah, the lighting is perfect and THAT. DRESS!

  2. Yes! I love this one. Red, white and navy; a classic color palate that will never go out of style, and a favorite of mine. You really hit the jackpot with that vintage hat. I'm quite jelly.

  3. These photos are so beautiful. I love the nautical look with the lovely background. And that hat? too perfect <3

  4. Beautiful! And a flawless nautical look.


  5. Wow I love this more than I can explain. Love this colour combination and nautical is one of my favourites. Stunning dress. You inspire me to wear my nautical dress soon. I adore your blog and your style so I am going to have to follow you know!! :)

  6. Oh, you look so, so adorably nautical and that red hat does indeed at the right amount of pop!

    As for the travel credit cards- we do that and it works well. Good luck!

  7. I've been living for the weekend for ages now. It's great now the weather has warmed up too, I can get out and explore around.
    I agree, I want to travel full time, it's my life goal. I have a few more years of study but my bf and I have been seriously looking into it and how it's possible. In 3/4 years time I hope to make the move to travelling all the time.
    Having a blog to write about it is great, we've just started a joint one to document our journal from now until travelling. I'm so excited for it, it's taking a large amount of willpower to just not pack all my stuff up and leave right now. But I must wait and enjoy Belgium while I'm here :)

    1. I'd be really interested in how you guys are going to do that!! That sounds awesome! :)

  8. You always have the best nautical outfits!! Love this!!

  9. That blue nautical dress is the nautical dress of my dreams. <3 You look wonderful in it!!! If you ever get tired of it though, I'll buy it from you ;)
    It's perfect!
