Earthy Free Sunday

After three very eventful weekends of traveling from west to east Texas then back to central Texas I finally had a weekend all to myself! So, I went camping for the FIRST TIME EVER on Friday the 13th (a lot of  the Blair Witch scenes came to mind while I was out there) luckily my friends are pros and have all the unfamiliar camping gear needed, since I was completely unprepared. We headed out to Mckinney Falls State Park a little outside of Austin but not before making a pit stop for s’mores supplies and champagne (of course!).My goal was to avoid all technology, (which meant no photos…sorry!) think, and enjoy the night under the beautiful full moon and the oh so annoying cicada bugs singing, all night!

For the most part my mind never stops and when thoughts of the future lurk it makes me anxious and restless. But to be isolated from “society”, to be close to nature can help you clear your mind and give you new perspectives on your own lifestyle in a different way. To live by your own wishes and not live constrained by society, your job, schedules, bills, expectations is a tough thing to do and I found that being outdoors can help you gain that balance. My thoughts were less scattered, clear and blissful.

And in the spirit of being earthy and free, Sunday I decided to take a walk with that same state of mind and let my thoughts wander within the city limits.

LA Dreaming in Texas

I am not a fan on spending a ton of money on fashion. There are a lot of ways to get around spending your hard-earned money staring at a screen all day. That being said I will confess when it comes to music festivals I am weak! There is nothing like the festival struggle, the sun beating on you, the crap-py porta potties, the sea of people pushing and shoving. All worth it, once you get caught up in the listening to your favorite bands live, and that same state of mind that unites you with all the sweaty people around you… Most of the excitement for me is to watch what people are wearing and putting together my ootd, here is what I wore for Free Press Summer Festival, in Houston Texas.

Forever21 top, Express Shorts, Aldo Booties, Anthro sunnies.
