Since changing home bases from Ohio to California, my favorite season has changed too - Summertime was always my favorite but now I think I've switched teams to Spring. There's something magical about Los Angeles in April and May - everything is in bloom and it feels like you're on another planet. The trees are purple, the days are hot, and everything just makes you feel alive.
I had been looking forward to visiting the Flower Fields in Carlsbad for quite some time, and one day in April on the way down to San Diego my little flower child dreams came true. I was so incredibly happy with everything in my life (see last photo for reference) and cant help but to look back and feel that feeling again. Everything was so perfect.
It was a chilly day - too chilly for a dress or anything that would give my legs goosebumps, so I opted for pants and sandals instead. You'll also start noticing that I have a SERIOUS obsession with florals right now...

The title of this post is from the lyrics in the song Summer Skin by Death Cab for Cutie. Though my favorite song on the album Plans is I Will Follow You Into The Dark, this song is a little more fitting for the season (plus, I really try not to depress you guys as my musical taste could probably push someone off of a bridge).
