leather jacket 4 review

stolen from his, oversized leather jacket review

Black jeans, a white tee and a leather biker jacket are three items literally everyone should have in their wardrobe. They don’t go out of style. They’re comfy, and extremely versatile. In fact, a true minimalist wouldn’t need much more in their wardrobe at all. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | leather jacket c/o:LEATHER JACKETS 4   A capsule wardrobe represents the core essential pieces you’ll wear over and over. They’re the pieces that can be mixed and matched with everything else, and the ones you’ll likely wear out from repeated use before you’ll ever have the desire to replace them. An eternal icon of rebellious style, a genuine leather motto jacket is a wardrobe staple for both his and hers. While admittedly owning more than a couple in my loosely translated “capsule wardrobe”, somehow I always find room for one more. Changing it up this season, I’ve received a new, oversized leather jacket courtesy of Leather Jacket 4. Leather Jacket 4 is is an online retailer that originated out of Florida, producing …

inspiration of the season

seasons of the setting sun

How did we get here. We stood there in the breeze. That moment was right. Even if the road leading there wasn’t perfect. Even if tomorrow was not going to be ok. We stared into the distance. The silent mountains bathed in the clearest of spring lakes. The setting sun slowly painted and re-painted the horizon. Hues changed from the vivid lakes and trees of the day. Sunset transformed the earth to gold. Dusk settled in smokey pinks and blues. It was like watching the earth become reborn overnight. Everything old melted with the sun, only to be brought back to life more beautiful each time. Life has seasons. Some colorful and exciting. Some are crisp and clear, letting you see for miles. Some seasons are hazy and dark. Sometimes it feels like the sun may never rise again. Yet, that beautiful circle of light rises each day. Every day we are reminded we have something to be grateful for. Everyday is reborn, with a chance to start everything new.   We often can’t see …

rosemary beach summer home

the most perfect day at Rosemary Beach, Florida

Just be. Sit. Inhale. Exhale with your entire body so that it can refill on nothing but the sea-filled air. This is the moment you’ve been holding your breath for. A single wisp of cloud moves ever so slowly with the late summer breeze. The sound of waves crashing is all that breaks the silence. Welcome to Panama City Beach, Florida. Not quite the tourist trap as Miami, not the cultural experience of Bali or Costa Rica. Only simple, uncomplicated beauty lies on the horizon. This place is one to relax. It is the time to enjoy a moment of complete stillness. A small entourage of comrades join together to enjoy this extended weekend getaway. We’re all here for the same reason. Where the beach is, happiness ensues. At that bliss is all that fills our hearts. We dreamt up this moment for what feels like an eternity. The 5-day sanctuary from our daily lives has begun. The escape to the beach was a success, and we’re so, so ready. What’s different this year? No …
