Wild and Free

I have really been into the bohemian style recently. Maybe it’s because Coachella is going on, but I’ve hopped on the band wagon with the whole 70’s trend. I’m not a big print person, but I fell in love with this vintage cross pattern. The warm colors create a softer look and give it a more romantic feel. There’s something about Spring that makes me want to wear light and flowy pieces. But I do like to pair them with tougher accessories to give it some edge. This bag I got from H&M is one of those pieces. I can’t resist fringe so I knew I had to have it when it first caught my eye. It has been one of my best purchases, and it is surprisingly versatile.

To join in the spirit of Coachella, I’ve been listening to Florence and the Machine non-stop.Words can’t describe how much I want to see her in person and I’m sad I have to miss out. Instead her latest single St. Jude has been playing on repeat from my tiny dorm room. For those of you also wishing you were there, I’d love to hear what’s on your festival playlist?

Almost Famous

I can’t help but feel like Penny Lane in this big, fluffy coat. It was an impulse buy and not normally something I would buy for myself. But when I found it for only $20 at TJMaxx, I knew I had to have. It has to be the warmest thing I’ve ever owned. I was surprised with how easily it fit into the rest of my wardrobe.

As I am sure you can see, we already have snow here in Wisconsin. This weather has already dropped below 10 degrees and has made it harder to go out for photos. But I braved the wind to take some before my Thanksgiving break. I’m afraid I’ll be working most of it, and having to deal with the madness that is Black Friday. I only have one more day of classes before I can head home for the holiday.

Railways

34152

I am always on the lookout for new locations. So it was much to my delight that I found myself taking photos at this abandoned railroad. It was something I had seen last year, but never really considered. But while I was out scouting some of our nature trails I came upon this spot. The entrance to this railroad is surrounded by trees and is quite a ways up from the ground, but after seeing it I knew I had to shoot here. Though the sun wasn’t on our side today, my friend managed to snap some really great shots for me to post. It’s this type of scenic locations that really make me appreciate this town. Though I will forever be a city girl, I do love the imagery that the countryside provides. Menomonie is filled with so many beautiful historic locations, I’m excited to branch out more and explore new places.
