Spring Playlist

Being the complete music junkie I am, I thought a playlist during this awkward winter to spring transition time was fitting, especially with the range of music I have been into. There isn't really a consistent theme to the genres, which is really the essence of my iTunes, particularly during warm weather. I mean, one can't help it that they like alternative, pop, classical, or…Disney, right? Just checking.

 I hope you guys enjoy these tunes and I will be back with less lack luster posts Friday, via New York! Eeep so excited to shoot in Soho and shop till I drop (in the hotel). xoxo Gossip Girl (Isabelle) 

P.S. Three episodes of GG left. Noooooooo. Seriously avoiding the last episode.

Spring Fever

    On the *extremely* rare occasion that I manage to find pants/shorts I actually like, I tend to tell myself it is justified that I buy every print available. Alas, I now own these adorable high-waisted shorts in a blue floral and this vintage-y darker pair. You've got to balance dark and light, right? Seriously crossing my fingers that this (shot last weekend) will be the last time I have to struggle my way into tights. Spring weather is looooong over due

Speaking of nice weather, I trudged through a 3 mile run in the freezing rain today, which was quite awful I must admit. This wonderful afternoon activity of mine is not only to blame for my (developing) frostbite, but also for my uncalled for hiatus. Track meets are a time killer. However, I will be headed to New York mid-next week, which calls for photo diaries, outfits, and posts galore. Woot woot! Talk soon and hope your week is off to a pleasant start. xo

P.S. Yay for 150 posts! :O Lots more posting to come.

Taking *full* advantange of my surroundings, I of course had to shoot an outfit on the steps of our hut on the beach. Looking out onto the beach "doing my thang", I recall my troubles of aching sunburn and approaching school stress  fading….it's things like post-vacation blogging that make you realize how starkly  you transition from basking in the sun one day to being nearly bored to tears in the classroom the next. Despite being as weary of change as I am, I realize that change comes often, just like the school days are quickly dwindling down and soon enough I will embark on more travels- New York City, Greece, and other unknown adventures. 

Post-vacation depression aside, I really am digging this whole red lip + breton t-shirt dress + gladiator combo I had going on for our smoothie refreshers @ "The Shak". There's nothing that says vacation quite like boxy-striped dresses, head-to-toe sunburn, and brain freeze inducing smoothies. 

Hope you guys have a fabulous week ahead of you! Take a smoothie break…or two (or 4). xoxo

Belize Diary

1. Taking in the beauty after hiking to the "Big Rock" 2. Delightful breakfast on our porch in the jungle 3. Sneaky butterfly at the butterfly farm 3. Insane cookie/soy ice-cream dessert for lunch 4. "Charlie" the horse 5. Snap from my last post at the beach 5. Colorful shacks by the water in the nearby town 6. Paradise 7. Little selfie action with my favorite mom-ographer 

     I finally got around to sorting through my maybe a 1,000 photos from Belize into this photo diary. Keeping with the nature of the trip, the order transitions from our jungle adventures to relaxing on the wondrous beaches. As much as I wish I were back in time, actually living these photos, the cold (literally…snow? c'mon) reality of school awaits. 

Sorry to keep this short, but we're in the midst of a track 'preseason' week and I am ready to collapse on the floor. I really wish I were kidding. But get excited, because I've got one or two more posts from Belize coming very soon. ♥ xoxo

   Mid-day yesterday (pre-stand up paddle boarding and hammock lounging), my mom-ographer and I decided to capture at least some of the wondrous beauty that is Belize. If it weren't for my array of peeling and bug bites, we probably would've done blog posts all day everyday. But nonetheless, here are some shots from paradise (more to come in a photo diary), featuring what I wore for the latter of our adventurous trip- shorts, tanks, swim suits, and bare feet. Ah, simplicity. 

   However, all good things must come to an end…and a very abrupt one at that. Despite just returning home today, I return back to reality aka school tomorrow, with last minute assignments already brewing in my email. How lovely. But fear not, I will be back soon with more snaps from Belize very soon! Hope you guys have a fabulous week where ever you may be. xo Isabelle
