             This was shot in downtown St. Paul on top of the bridge above the Mississippi river on the Wabasha street bridge. It was a gorgeous, sunny fall day and couldn't be more perfect.

             Menswear is a staple for me, I gravitate towards it because of the clean cuts, crisp tailoring, and of course, timeless quality of it. The blazer I'm wearing is actually from my dad's closet! I figured since this exact style is all over my feed and in stores, might as well. Other than the shoulders being a bit too big for me, I'm not mad at it! There are so many gems from actual menswear I find to be more classic than their womenswear counterparts. Honestly, go thrifting for some of these pieces because it's hella affordable, or raid your dad's closet lol. #ballinonabudget

Eternal Summer



I'm still in denial that summer is over even though classes started a few weeks ago. Summer is my season, always has been. I live for those super hot days and vacations of course. Right after I took my finals during the spring semester, my mom and I jet-setted to Indonesia. Crazy right? Being in Minnesota it was still a bit cold in May and I was ready to leave the continent.

First order of business was to visit my mom's cousin in Jakarta, Indonesia. We stayed in a cute and tiny hotel near the major shopping district and I was surprised to see stores that weren't even in my city. The heat was getting to be too much so we flew off to Bali, just an hour flight away. This happened to be the best decision we made. I was in awe. From the architecture, to the lush landscape and stunning beaches. I even tried surfing for the first time!






Our cute villa


The rice terraces were larger than life. Pictures just can't do them justice.







It was so worth the 30+ hour flight to this beautiful island. Until next time Bali and farewell summer.
