badlands


On Sunday my parents and I went to the badlands located outside of Brampton near a little town called Terra Cotta. The badlands are composed of a clay substance called terracotta, hence the name for the town. It was just an incredible sight. The mounds and hills don't look like they belong there. Mother nature is astonishing sometimes because I honestly think that the badlands look like they have been photoshopped in the rest of the scenery.
My parents and I had a wonderful time climbing the hills and taking photos. Now whoever said that climbing in a dress and sandals isn't appropriate, was completely and utterly wrong. I found myself a much better climber than many of the people clad in shorts and running shoes.







My parents.














Wearing a handmade dress (not made by me), sandals from Style Sense, vintage belt, Ray Ban Wayfarers, gifted jewelry.
Mom is wearing Michael Kors flip flops, Dior sunglasses, Marciano dress.
Dad is wearing Aldo shoes, Parasuco tee, Guess jeans.

adslkajdsl AHHH THESE PICTURES ARE INCREDIBLE. I kind of want to print them off and send them as a postcard, but I won't because that's, you know, creepy/weird/stalkerish/tooawesome/etcetc.

But seriously.

And climbing in a skirt, FTW. I'm always "overdressed" for nature excursions and related things but I'M FINE.

P.S. your mom looks so fierce! I wonder where you get your fierce fashion genes from hmm...

You must have the most stylish parents in the world. That picture of them jumping is too cute for words. I love all of this.

You asked what senior pictures are...so I'll tell you! In my area, when you're a senior in high school, you get a different picture in the yearbook than kids in other grades. It's taken by an outside studio and you can get other ones taken too, depending on what package you buy.
