Twin Lakes


Yesterday, I had a strong desire to go somewhere beautiful, so Zak suggested we go to Twin Lakes, a lake and nature trail nearby. I had such a wonderful time roaming the woods, looking at the slightly mucky but still lovely lake, taking too many photos, and laughing my butt off with Zak. One of the main things I dislike about living in New York City is how difficult it is to escape from the urban to the natural. Taking outfit shots around my neighborhood is a hassle because no one, including myself, even has a lawn, let alone a nice field of flowers by their house. So, when I get to escape to places like this, even if just for an hour or so, it makes me quite happy. So happy, that I take way too many photos and post them all here. So yeah, this is my warning that this post is going to be a bit photo heavy.

  11. One photo heavy post once in a while is great! Especially with pictures from such pretty places and such another great outfit of yours!

  12. This is awesome! Beautiful scenery and cute outfit! I love the scalloped shorts. I've seen them around and I feel like I'd be addicted to them if they lived in my drawers.

  13. Ok I have to reblog this in my tumblr because it is a combo of all of my favorite things. One of my favorite color combos (red+white), high-waisted shorts, a tied blouse & a hat! Perfection! Plus that close-up of you is the cutest thing ever.

  19. This location is stunning! And I see you figured you out a way to wear the red shorts. Yay!

  20. I mean, living in a big city has its ups and downs, but wow! You live in NYC! How amazing is that? Besides, you still get to find those awesome spots, which are beautiful! There's no vegetation here :p I'd rather have no lawn, than have no trees around :p Your hat and your shoes are so perfect! They look very camp-ish :P does that makes sense? camp-ish?! D:

  21. Twin Lakes in beautiful. I should go there :) Have you been to Thousand Islands? It's STUNNING. I really want to get out of the city for even just two days!

    I like how you knot your shirt!
