pretty / dirty


L - Nikon / T - taken by my dad

Taylor's style has changed over the last year. Now she likes to wear dress or skirts with boots or cute little heels – she used to wear flats and very rarely wore a dress. Now she lets her hair go natural more times than not, letting the curls fall as they may – she used to straightened her hair every single day. Tonight she wore it up with a peacock feather in her hair and I thought she looked pretty sitting there with her cat waiting for me. I wished I had taken time to get a better photo but she was in a hurry. / okay, so it's just a job working for my dad. but still! i'm really excited to have a summer job that's outside and not inside some grimy restaurant. it's nice to spend time with my dad and get in shape at the same time. it's hard work, but it's way better than sitting around all day. (i'm going to be so tan by the end of summer..)

Love the view of the two sides of T! How great to have an outdoor job that will keep you in shape for the summer! Here's the mom part of me talking, Make sure you wear sunscreen!

Love this. And remember how much cooler Thelma & Louise were once they started letting themselves get dirty? Less makeup, more courage. Of course, we don't want to fly over a cliff like them, but still, they were cooler.

Look at that minuscule waist. Feeling envy over here. Great combo, by the way.

Some of my best memories are of working outside when I was young and sweating it out hard. Yes. Good times.
