♡ On Monday I made another spontaneous trip up north to the stunning Big Sur coastline. My love, Daniel, and I, camped beneath the trees and spent two days wandering the crystal clear seashore. I’ve been to this wonderland many times, and this trip goes down in the books as one of my favorites.
Because of construction along Hwy 1, we could only access the stretch of coast from Plaskett Campground to Big Sur Bakery via a narrow country road. The route took us through the mountains as we climbed higher and higher to eventually descend to a breathtaking view of the iconic highway coastline, winding along a sparkling ocean.
Driving the road felt apocalyptic in comparison to the usual Big Sur crowds. Monarchs gently fluttered by and whales swam in the distance. To complete this daydream, the weather was eighty degrees accompanied by a soft breeze and the cool mist of ocean waves.
I always find myself among the wild ocean air in Big Sur. I know I’ve written this before but every visit reminds me of being a young girl and marveling at the beautiful intricacies and peaceful sounds of nature. When I’m there, trivial worries melt away and there’s this component of a natural sensory overload that stuns me back into understanding what’s truly important in life. I’m engulfed in the present. Overcome with love. Willing to surrender to uncertainty.
I hold this feeling close to my heart and take it home. Reminding myself to reject the plague of worry or fear and instead fill my mind with the love, beauty, and freedom this special piece of California coastline radiates from deep within.
Once again, I found myself caught up in the magic of Big Sur.

thoughts & daydreams
On this trip we also shot the first glimpse at the new collection of Wild & Free Embellished Denim! I’ve been working hard to get this collection finished as I know many of you are patiently waiting, and the time has come to finally disclose the date of release! This next batch will include elephants, wild & free signature styles and new Thai floral designs (like what’s pictured above!).
Mark your calendars as on October 15 this new collection will be hitting the Wild & Free Jewelry website! Due to some feedback from international customers, the collection will go live at 5pm California Pacific Time.
To make things even more exciting, I’ll be doing another Jacket Giveaway on this blog starting October 7th! It’s been a while since I’ve hosted a giveaway on this platform and I’m ready to make it extra special, so keep an eye on this space for all the details.
Sending love & light on this beautiful Saturday evening.
