The Green Gables

 All photographs are self portraits taken by myself using a tripod.
Styling:  Esther Boller

I remember the first time that I felt homesick for Indiana after moving to school in Savannah.  It was about half way trough fall quarter and I was helping a friend with a photo shoot.  We drove past the marshes just outside of the city, and it was my first time out of the downtown area.  As I looked out over the marshes I realized, "It's - So - Open."  There was so much space for my eyes to breathe.

Growing up in Indiana I was always surrounded by flat corn and soy bean fields, so my eyes grew up with the privilege to look out for miles at a time.  In that moment in the marshes, there was so much space again, and I didn't even realize how much I had been craving that till I had it again. 

Well the other day, I walked the Chelsea High line (my favorite place to walk in NYC so far) and I was soaking up every chance I got to see out past 100 feet.    I'm very happy that I found a place for my eyes to "breathe" in NYC.   I figure that no matter where I move, as long as I'm able to get a place to look out, I'll be ok.   

Hat:  H&m, tank top: forever 21, Skirt: muslin tulle skirt I found in the throw-away bins at school.  Belt:  Goodwill.  
Photos taken last summer while on a camping trip in Michigan with my family.  More photos from that trip are on the way.



  1. Glad to find your blog! Really love your style and imagination!

  2. As always: beautifully written. The outfit looks soooo good! This is such a pleasure to read your posts and go through your life-and-fashion-ideas.

  3. Love the winsome effect of your outfit ~ that skirt is so pretty and looks perfect for the setting! It's funny how tulle can be so perfect even when it's impractical half of the time. :) ❤

  4. I first started following you on Burdastyle and then your blog not just because of the lovely photos and clothes, but because of the open spaces in your photos. I miss the open spaces too. The sky especially.

  5. Your pictures are amazing!!!
