loving craving wishing waiting: august 10th

IMG_1597 IMG_3066loving: 

relaxed days off at the beach with close friends

waking up early for coffee before work

tanned hands (kind of) and a mix of big and dainty rings

cat stevens, gordon lightfoot, pure prairie league, and other folk singers

my new phone! finally upgraded from my very cracked, very slow, very broken iphone 5

rewatching the first and second seasons of the rachel zoe project

insanely gorgeous sunsets every night

craving:

fruit! it’s all i want to eat

long, salty swims

more piercings

wishing:

simultaneously for a longer summer and for fall clothes

for that perfect pair of booties (i recently ordered these – i hope they’re everything i think they’re going to be!)

for a sephora to pop into – i have a very long list of things i want to try

i was a mermaid

waiting:

honestly, i’m not really waiting for anything.  i’m very at peace with where i am right now, this very minute.  and that is a beautiful, very satisfying, very unusual (for me) feeling.

a collection of dainty rings –
various designers including claire kinder studio and drift/riot

simple black bikinis – mostly old navy (did you know they make the best suits?!)

flow-y, open weave sweaters – brandy melville and loft

the softest jean jacket of all time – madewell jean jacket in ellery wash (i sized up one size)

salty beach hair – i’ve taken to not washing it after swimming in the ocean (at least not until the next day)

soft, fitted tees with baggy denim shorts – it’s a little unusual for me to wear tight tee shirts, but hey, sometimes a girl wants to have a body

covergirl lash blast length mascara in very black – i got this drugstore mascara a few weeks ago and i absolutely love it.  it’s very much like the bare minerals flawless definition mascara that you all know is my favorite, and a little bit lighter in formula than the l’oreal telescopic.  it is really really natural and just gives your lashes a bit of oomph in color and length without any clumping whatsoever
