Dress: Nasty Gal//Coat: U.S. Apothecacy//Headband: Anthropologie

Soaking up the tasteful back-patio space of Sara's gorgeous Beaufort home with Henrik one warm July afternoon in a hand-sewn coat unlike any I've owned or seen that I can't wait to whip back out again in the fall. You'll be seeing much more of this piece. With just enough sun on my face to make me stand out from a white wall, I'm almost too happy here.

Perfect Pancake

K for Kaitlin and L for Laken.
We're just cute like that.

Pancakes by Kaitlin because I purely do not have any pancaking skill.

Radical, salty waves in Maine weren't so harsh as to make me need to wear my knee brace in the ocean (ie. my incredible fashion statement made further south in the Carolinas) but just enough to rock you to sleep.
Swimsuit; Nasty Gal
Oh yeah and it matches my towel...

Camp Out

I've sat here for quite  a while not knowing where to start with this, because this evening was one of the most breathtaking of my life. It started with a small campfire that really didn't amount to much, and yet lasted hours upon hours into the darkest and brightest night I've ever experienced; I found myself pointing out The Big Dipper, shooting stars and satellites in a sky tremendously lit in one corner by an enormous orange moon ready to take a dip in the sea. But before any of that was this campfire in a sunset that itself caught the sky and clouds on fire, can't you tell? I held the sun as it outlined Kaitlin in gold before she played one-sided badminton with baby cousin Daniel, bathing in the shower of light. Playing with sparklers like we were Voldemort led to veggie dog eating, sand-mountain building, silent sky searching, coal crackling, and splashing in the black water where the luminescent sea sparkled from our touch. Fruity words like these don't even come close to how I felt that night.
