Ext. Park on a Cloudy Day- Day
At the tennis court dark clouds replaced the golden hour and she wondered for a moment if those caged walls might be real. The couple next to her loses a ball over the fence and she watches as one of the kids playing outside tosses it back. She stands and begins to walk home still thinking there met be freedom in the future.


It would be the one day that I specifically wait around trying to timeout the golden hour aka the few minutes of perfect picture lighting that nature gives us each day, that it decides to turn completely cloudy hiding any evidence of the sun or it setting for that matter. You win some you lose some. Still feel like this outfit is a win though. Even though I've a week of VERY little sleep sandlots of stress (note the dark craters beneath my eyes that I argued with myself over editing but decided not to bc hey I'm trying to keep it real here y'all) I still felt like I could run off to some late 60's freedom land having mixed denim, platforms, and a retro looking crop top. Yeah, I know you're "supposed" to wear it off the shoulder but I'm sorry I just like the way it looks worn all the way up better, plus that means I don't have to adjust it after every time I move my arm.

Anyways, hope you enjoyed these gloomy polaroid looking pics and that it's nice where you are. Promise it won't be another week before you see me, that was my bad. Have a good one, humans.

Ext. Field in Spring - Day
There are plenty of times she wished she could forget, but this certain sunny afternoon, she wanted to remember forever.

 So, I don't know if you can "couple crush", but I'm gonna go ahead and do it because week after week my #mcm is Elvis and my #wcw is Priscilla, so might as well just list them at the same time right? I've been spending a lot of time lately just wondering what is it that made Priscilla's hair so voluminous and wonderful? I had a theory about maybe she didn't wash her hair that often, so here I am 6 days shampoo sober (well I mean I got a helluva lot of dry shampoo in there) and my bouffant is still not nearly as banging'. I'm now on the theory that she had some sort of fairy dust or magic potion, or ya know maybe she just had a lot more arm strength than me, because I really can't hold my hair up long enough to tease every single root. Point is, whatever she had, I want it.

I'm pretty happy right now, because the sun decided to show it's face today after 8 days of nothing but rain. April showers are getting a little of hand around here people. Taking full advantage of these UV rays by taking Autumn to the lake and wearing the micro mini of my dreams. Srsly, best Etsy purchase ever.

Sorry for being so late with this post, but as I mentioned before the weather has become my nemesis lately, and didn't allow me to create pretty things even when I really wanted to. Good news is, I'm opening up my schedule a little bit more and have lots of good things planned. Like literally, I have Talenti in the freezer to go with whatever Netflix show I watch tonight. HAHA......I'm pretending to be funny so I'm going to go, but really I have some nice stuff coming so check back soon :) See you in a day or two!

Ext. Chester Frost Park - Day
She sat on the pier watching the ripples in the water and feeling the sun on her face. She was still in town but her head was on holiday.

You know the Mad Men episode where Betty and Don go to Rome and when they come back Betty is upset and wanting to go away again? (It ends really beautifully with some sort of dimming spotlight effect as Don stands staring after her.) Anyways, I can totally feel her on that right now. I've saving up for the past year to be able to move, and am just looking for the right opportunity so that I can make it happen, I'm hoping it won't be to terribly much longer, but in the meantime I would really like to take a vacation somewhere. Not having any trips planned until the end of May though, I got all glammed up and took myself to the county park on what seems to be the only day that rain wasn't forecasted for this week...meh...for about an hour of peacefulness. The fancier than usual ensemble up against the watery background had me pretending I was posing for Slim Aarons rather than my tripod. *DREAM*ON*

Hope all of you humans had a good weekend! Have to say, I did spend some of mine trying to live vicariously through all of the Coachella updates on Instagram! Keep 'em coming.

Ext. Hidden Lake - Day
Caught in a storm between her head and her heart she finds that the rain hides her tears and washes away the confusion.


Basically spent today out here in a scene from The Notebook dressed as a modern day Allie Hamilton looking for Ryan Gosling to come and sweep me off my feet. Umm hello? Ryan where are you? I know you've "retired" from acting for a while, but for me it was never over! The Notebook, is the only Nicholas Sparks book turned movie that I actually liked. To me it didn't seem nearly as cheap or cheesy as the others, the acting was legit, I felt it was overall well directed, and of course the costumes left a lasting impression on me. So, normally when it starts to rain (which it's been doing way too much lately, do I even still live in TN, or did I move to Seattle?) I pack up my bags refuse to subject my camera to such elements. But, today, something struck me a little different. At the first roll of thunder I found myself pulling on one of the first pieces of clothing that I ever made for myself (vintage Desirae Danielle lol), wrapped my camera in Target bags, and purposely got caught in the rain...then accidentally forgot to bring extra dry clothes to wear on the way home. *smacks hand to forehead* I wonder how many of the same outfits they had for Ryan and Rachel when filming their rain scene? 

Also, no I did not chop my hair off, just pinned it up like a magician.
