Indian Diaries: Pt. 1

DRESS: (c/o) Johanna Ortiz/SANDALS: Topshop

I’ll admit it. When Chelsae Anne (my photographer) asked me to join her + her crew in India during their month-long journey throughout Asia, I said “Chels, you’re crazy…” Only to take a step back and realize this was an opportunity of lifetime. Exhausted from traveling nearly every week the past two months, I put on my big girl pants, called my travel agent while I was in Mexico with my boyfriend and said, “book the ticket.” I didn’t check my bank account. I didn’t think twice about flying halfway across the world by myself. I simply thought, “go.” So, I sourced outfits for what would be one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever shot at and a week later, found myself en-route to mystical India…

Was it a week ago? Two weeks ago? One month ago? I don’t know, can’t remember. Time seems like a blur lately (but in a good way) so please excuse me for not knowing!

As I slipped into my bathing suit in Cartagena, I realized I didn’t bring a cover-up with me so I grabbed a midi skirt and ran downstairs to meet Chelsea, my photographer, for breakfast and a quick photoshoot. Only to realize that my outfit was pretty cute! “Who would have thought a bathing suit could double as a top?” I thought. Chelsea encouraged me to shoot the swimsuit (with the midi skirt). The pictures came out great! I loved it so much, I decided to post it to IG and the response was fantastic.

Which left me dreaming up the many possibilities of swimsuits…

Le sigh… one of the most beautiful spots I found at GoldenEye in Jamaica was this rooftop ledge overlooking the mountains. In the early morning, mist would rise to the top, birds would sing while ocean waves would gently kiss the coastline. Sunrises are my favorite time of the day and I promise you they’re even better in Jamaica! If only I could travel back in time and go back to this very spot – with a cup of fresh Jamaican coffee. Today I’m unpacking, doing laundry and re-packing (yes, re-packing) my very tired suitcase in a pair of leggings that haven’t seen a gym in years and a college t-shirt – with a cup of bland coffee…
