Mother Earth

Let's forget it's the middle of July and pretend that it's a 68 degree Fahrenheit day in May. Because this is what this fit is made for. Funny story actually, I originally picked this out for this past Mother's Day. I was way into my last minute (like running almost an hour late for dinner last minute) look that I really thought I had to stunt it again for the blog. If my 13-year-old-self was me right now, she would remind herself of when a friend from middle school said to her, "You never repeat an outfit!" Did I feel super cool that I never committed what was then such a crime? Of course. I wasn't embarrassing myself like Lizzie McGuire did. Now that I'm Grown™ and people are cool and sustainability is even cooler, I chose to not give myself too much of a hard time. 

After being employed by the holy grail that is The Gap for a little over 2 years, I have developed my collection of Gap items. As in... this whole look is from Gap. Lolz. I have some sort of weird obsession with eyelet embroidery and also the color white. Definitely mostly the color white. Eyelet, though, is sweet and innocent like a doll. And yep! Yes, this top fits both of my obsessions. Also, these super cool straight wide leg take on the normal khaki, fit like a glove and are incredibly flattering. Big cheers. For this shoot, we wandered around the neighborhood of Lake of the Isles and found some earthy and beautiful scenes. You'll soon understand why the word khaki and Mother Earth are written in the same post. 

 Ok real quick I need to address something, we were doing pride tattoo's at Gap one day, so there is a faded 'TOGETHER' tat on right ankle that you will definitely see throughout this blog post. Part of me wishes it wasn't temporary.
