Dress || Shoes || Earrings || Lipstick || Bag (sold out, similar listed)

New England, is just really fun to capture during this time of the year.

There is something so magical about the 4th of July, and how New Englanders embrace it. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of quintessential New England moments, like driving down little town streets, covered in pebbles while taking in historic New England beach homes.

Someone told me the other day that being 23 is basically the equivalent of freshman year but for ‘adulthood’. Just let that soak in for a second.
