Puerto Rico

Jul 16, 2018


I realize this blog is quickly turning into my online photo journal, and I'm kinda diggin it. I like to share what I wear and where I go, but in realistic settings. I'm not into the 'putting on outfits just to post' anymore. It's just not fun and it just makes me feel silly haha. Anyway, here are a few photos from our stop in Puerto Rico! I loved San Juan and the colorful buildings. The locals were extremely nice and I picked up a silver necklace with an amethyst and quartz charm in a crystal shop. Some of these pics are blurry so forgive me, but beggars can't be choosers when someone is willing to snap a photo haha!

ps: check the braid still going strong :)

Friday we had planned to drive to the sunflower field in Raleigh to take some photos around sunset and we knew it was going to be epic! LOL. It rained the entire time. ((Thanks Accuweather, not as accurate as you think are ya??)) It was so muddy our feet were sinking in the puddles. We just went with it. There's not really much you can do after you are ankle deep in mud and soaking wet except keep the camera safe under the umbrella, have some fun in the rain, and get the darn photos! It really was one of the best nights this summer. Afterward we went to a coffee shop, washed our feet in the bathroom sink (classy), and chatted while we sipped our drinks. Ugh, I love summer nights. 

PS: My blue Italian leather bag is from Armadio (gifted). The leather is like butter and the bamboo handles make my bohemian heart flutter. Also, it's rain friendly :)
