Hey everyone,

So, the last few months have been the most surreal and busy that I have experienced in a very long time. First, (for those of you who don't follow me on Instagram) I went on a trip to San Francisco with my two best friends--probably one of the most amazing experiences in my lifetime so far. Whilst there, I managed to pick up this amazing vintage Haori from a small vendor in Japantown. Second, I went to Las Vegas for my brother's bachelor party which (to say the least) was a very different experience than San Francisco, but a fun one nonetheless. Finally, I traveled back to my hometown for his wedding, and spent time visiting with both close and distant family whom I have not seen in some time.

Ultimately, I want this look to commemorate all of the new and amazing experiences I have had so far this summer, and how they have altered my perspective--as it is a promise to myself of a better and more focused quality of life.

I hope you all continue to follow me in my adventures, and I am glad to be back!
