August, you dreamboat you! I seriously love this month. It’s definitely my favorite summer month — and it’s my second favorite month of the year. October is definitely first. I’d say August second, May third, December fourth. That way… you get each of the seasons, fall being the best, winter being the worst, but December is at least redeemable because of the holidays. LOL. These are the dumb things I think about in my head. But anyway, I’m here for this month. I can’t wait to do all the summer things, bask in all the golden hour light, get ice-cream, dive into Lake Michigan, take several road trips. It’s all happening; and I’m HERE FOR IT.
So I’m really into black lately! Well, I’ve always been into black, but I’m really into all black looks right now. I just got these Emmett Wide-Leg Crop pants from Madewell (have always wanted them, finally went for it!) and I love them. I ended up getting rid of an old pair of black “dress” pants and my black wide-leg denim because these pants just replace both. They’re great for work and play! I also picked up another color of this tie-front tank (the yellow version hitting the blog soon, but check this IG post if you’re curious now). It was on super clearance, and I love it! Definitely a unique piece, perfect for summer, and I’ll love wearing this under chunky cardigans come autumn. I spent some serious coin on Madewell’s new fall arrivals, but I’m really excited about everything I got. Check my closet Pinterest board for everything I’m buying before it hits the blog!
These photos definitely feel a little old-school Selective Potential! I think it’s partly golden-hour… I haven’t been shooting in this time period lately just because summer has been so busy. But I’m excited to start shooting more! Lots of blog trips coming up that give opportunities for photos… and I have a bank of stuff I’m sitting on that I need to catch up on. So I’m going to husttleee these next few busy months on the blog and on Instagram, so be sure to follow along there! Content always hits there first. I was also laughing because I think this is the first time I’ve ever shown the slightest hint of cleavage on my blog LOL. I literally scrolled through all of my past photos and was like… nope, not even a HINT. So here ya go, boobies meet the internet. Internet, meet boobies. 🤣
Other than busy, fun summer plans, not much is new! Still the same ‘ol, same ‘ol. We’re headed to Ohio this week to a new town I’ve never explored before, so I’m excited for that! Planning a BIG trip to the Upper Peninsula at the end of summer has gotten me all heart-eyes. I’m so excited to cross the Mighty Mac, and see five new lighthouses I haven’t seen before. THE BEST KIND OF TRIP. I just got to see a new lighthouse super close to home too that I’ll be blogging about soon! Hmmmm. I’m coming up on my 10-year blogiversary too! I have some really fun things planned, lots of throwbacks, a big giveaway, so stay tuned there! Okay. I’m off to watch BIP (such a guilty pleasure, lol, if you know, you know). BYEEE!
