Long time, no post! I have to apologize – school has been on my tail for the past couple of weeks and I can’t catch a couple of minutes to work on a post for you guys! With that said, I totally forgot to post these amazing photos from my road trip to Big Sur over spring break.
As you may recall, I went to Big Sur last summer and realized my undying love for the small stretch of coast. So when my friend suggested a road trip for a couple of days, it was naturally the first place I thought of.
We hopped in her Jeep and made the three hour trek (a small price to pay), where I got to show her the famous cliffs and waves for the very first time! It was as magical as ever – I can confidently say that of all the places I’ve been, Big Sur is my favorite.
I experience a different sort of excitement here. The absolute, raw beauty is unlike any other you’ll ever see and it creates a sort of hope for the future. When you’re driving down Highway 1, taking in the sea breeze and sun rays, you just know that you’ll visit a lot of places in your lifetime, but you’ll make it back here again.
This is my favorite photoshoot to date.
Favorite stretch of road, favorite dress, favorite time of day… Everything is pretty much ideal. I’ve been really inspired by the idea of flying by the seat of your pants recently, and even though I’m stuck in a library during most of my spare time, it’s nice to look at pictures like these and revisit those wistful notions again. They can inspire even the littlest of things, like a trip to a new coffee shop or area of town – there’s loads of new places to discover here in Montreal and sometimes you just need that little extra push to get out of the house and move.
I feel like my more recent posts have reflected that – a desire to move, shown through outfits with movement. Forget the backdrop, I don’t think you’d see an outfit like this on somebody totally content with being stuck in one place for a while.
It’s pretty convenient that I’ve been getting this cliche wanderlust, though, because I just found out that I’ll be spending a semester abroad in Edinburgh next Winter! It’s a whole year away but I’m confident the time will pass quickly, as it has been lately.
There isn’t much else to say, so I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
