// chasing light //

Do you ever have one of those days where you just wake up with an itch to explore? To head out with your friends on an open road with the speakers bumping the finest spring & summer tunes? With nothing on your itinerary - only the open road ahead and that refreshing feeling? Well, I faced that the other day, so I followed my intuition and headed up the Angeles Crest Highway to Mt. Wilson. While doing so, I wanted to show off (and offer some inspo for!) a great festival look brought to you by Express

First and foremost - I have to do a little happy dance due to the bracing views and brisk air. I mean, how could you not when you're wearing that top and surrounded by mountains?

Now it's time to pretend to tie my shoes, because I want to 'casually' show you how amazing they are.

Oh and dear sunlight, thank you for gracefully backlighting my stance of contentedness.

We continued to drive up the mountain to chase that light, and we found ourselves surrounded by the most vibrant sunset. Here we are, above it all, and the colors are hypnotizing! We brought our speaker along, so we had it playing some ambient music for a nice sunset soundtrack.

Sunset, I can feel you! ::)

All in all, the experience was revitalizing and I'm happy I followed my intuition to head out on a day trip to the mountains. It paired nicely with this festival get-up by Express. If you guys are still searching for that perfect (and affordable!) festival look, they have so many great selects. Check out the pieces I chose below!
