I'm a huge fan of showing off some leg in a casual sort of way. Think high-waisted denim mini paired with my favorite boots. I'm such a skirt sort of girl. Skirts that take me from day to night are the best (really how many times do we have to repeat this statement?!?). Most days I don't actually have enough time to change, so the more quickly I can transition, the better. Being the tall girl I am (I'm 5'11"), finding skirts with a length that hits at the right spot are hard to come by. They are either too short, or too long. Why is it so hard? And taking time to make extra alterations are not too fun. As well as expensive! This skirt from Cotton On is perfect in every aspect. I feel so French school girl in it!

Been thinking up more ideas for my lifestyle section of the blog, and I want to involve more wellness into this. More feel good about yourself topics, and ways to approach life in a more positive way. Even some of my workout tips. It's something we have to deal with on the daily, so I thought I'd make sure to not leave it on the back burner. I've just been so engulfed in some current creative projects that have taken up more time than I thought, and with fashion week around the corner things aren't made any easier. But once I get back into the daily groove of things, you can be sure to expect more of the good life stuff on here :)

Nicaragua 3 | In The Cove


Happy first day of September! Can you believe it?!?! And shout out to photographer Josh Maready for taking these wonderful photos of Thania and I frolicking in the cove at Aqua Wellness Resort in Nicaragua. We paddle boarded during the most perfect burst of sunset, and the water was deliciously warm once we sunk our bodies in. Sometimes its hard to get epic moments like this caught on camera, but we made it happen this time around. Thania and I wore matching O'Neill x Anna Sui crochet bikinis (they are both one of our favorite swim styles from the surf/skate brand). I almost didn't take it off my entire time in Nicaragua. Thanks for the memories Aqua Wellness Resort! We had such a relaxing and spectacular blast. There really is no place like Nicaragua.

Just a hike through the hills around Aqua Wellness Resort we found a hidden gem of a spot. Playa Gigante. A large and quiet beach where the surfers like to come out and play when the waves seem appropriate. A few locals fishing on the edge of the rocks, while along the shoreline are rows of colorful hostels and small places to get a casual bite to eat. The paint on them all worn down in a beautiful way. Quite a change from the zen and luxurious calmness of Aqua Wellness Resort just a 20 minute walk away, but still calm in its own, unique way. Where locals and backpackers can be found catching a drink right next to each other and pigs and dogs are free to roam. A little more hippie and grungy, Playa Gigante was the perfect exhibition of laid back surf life. Where the only requirements for a day fulfilled is a good wave and a good catch of fish. But finding a beach like this basically all to yourself is really quite a rare gem! So happy that Thania and I had a day to explore and relax in some hammocks at the top of a cliff for the most epic view of it all. We soaked it all in.
