I've always loved the outdoors. It's been ingrained in me since childhood - the smell of sage, the brush of the wild grasses - the smell of dirt. Yeah, I get made fun of for that one. But anyone who was raised in a rural area understands what I mean.
Nature is my happy place.
It always has been. Being outside, moving and breathing in the air allows me to think. No matter how many stresses life brings, taking time in a quiet place outside always brings me peace. Maybe it's because nature is untouched - just as it was when it was created by God. There's no distraction. It's just me and Him - enjoying each other's company.
My mom made a joke today as she was photographing these images. She remarked that I always take my pictures in the dirt. Granted, that may be partially true.
I'm the girl that goes exploring, whether I'm in hiking gear, or a dress and a pair of heels. Unconventional? Maybe. But that's how I roll. I have yet to break and ankle, and I'm not about to let a pair of shoes get in the way of memory making.
This skirt from Romwe is another piece I've been loving for mixing and matching. The dark charcoal color serves as the perfect neutral to pair with my autumn toned wardrobe.
