Outfit: Good Vibrations

Hi, guys! Who's so stoked about marriage equality in the USA? It's about time that everyone could get married to anyone they loved. Seeing the Supreme Court ruling on the news this week really was fabulous and the Gay Pride Parade is also happening in Chicago this weekend. What a week to celebrate breakthroughs for the human kind! We have a long way to go, but it's nice to know that we are advancing and giving equality to all (who have always been equal to begin with). There is only love and only marriage.... here's to 2015!
This gold costume jewelry was my Great Great Grandma Marie Berta Frisina's..... I love it so much and my mom just recently passed it down to me. I am so honored to have a family heirloom that has been in the family for this long!

Outfit: Sun Worship

Yesterday my friend Elliott and I went out to Montrose Beach around noon. I am amazed that these turned out so well considering it's the harshest time of the day to shoot! There were so many people on Montrose Beach that day that I was so glad to have a companion rather than my tripod... I always feel slightly insane posing for a tripod when I am dressed like this! Haha! I bought this romper from American Apparel a few days ago and I am obsessed.... the hat is also from American Apparel. Happy Summer!

I'm still REALLY loving my Agate Volcanic Rock necklace from Uncommon Goods! It is just my style... petite and classic! Take a glance at Uncommon Goods.... they have very unique items and this necklace was also made by a local artist named Lucy Dalton in Park Slope, Brooklyn NYC! One of my ultimate passions in life is supporting ethically made goods!

Outfit: I'm All Eyes

Lately, I feel I have a super sensitivity to oras and light emitting from human beings... and by lately- I mean the past couple of years. It seems that I couldn't possibly be wrong about the intentions of a human being after closely examining their body language up close and also from a distance. I would like to think I have something like a provincial eye for these kind of things.... I wonder often if it's because of my recent obsession with practicing yoga and meditation. Meditation helped me overcome depression- it's so powerful! Another thing about this outfit is the "Seeing Eye" earrings c/o Now Or Never jewelry. The seeing eye reminds me very much of Egyptians and with this wig I am wearing I felt a little like Cleopatra (or at least the Katy Perry version of Cleopatra... haha!) I also love symbolism of the Eye of Ra in ancient Egypt and how it represents royal power, protection and good health. 
I love these earrings from Now or Never jewelry so much! I get compliments on them where ever I go and I like to think that they resemble the illuminati symbol of the seeing eye (which I am really intrigued by.)

Buckingham Fountain Chicago

 Dillon & I went to Navy Pier yesterday and walked around Buckingham Fountain, too. The weather was a complete dream and we even ate a churro sundae and had photo-booth photos taken at Navy Pier. Successful day off! Of course it wouldn't be spring without me taking tons of photos with the flowering trees, now would it? :)
