Free People Summer Trends // Oceanside Talks

I have been reading Patti Smith's memoir, called "Just kids". It usually takes me a while to get into a book but this just kept my attention from page one. She is such a beautiful writer, a true poet. She talks about tales of living in NY in her young 20's, living in the Chelsea Hotel, and all the creative artists and musicians she meets from Janis Joplin to Jimi Hendrix. I love how she describes people with such intent and describes how each one has impacted her life, in either a subtle or striking way on her path to releasing the artist within her.

"What is the soul? What color is it? I suspected my soul, being mischevious, might slip away while I was dreaming and fail to return. I did my best not to fall asleep, to keep it inside of me where it belonged" - Patti Smith

Some new music I am loooooving lately:

My friend's band Peach Pit - they just released a 4-song EP that you gotta listen to. It is rad. 

Andy Shauf released his album The Party - and it is GOLD. I have worn out my earbuds listening to his last album Bearer of Bad News, and this new album is just as good. 

I just found out about Gallant, and have been loving his album "Ology" - R&B sultry groooooooves.

and of course... there's Beyonce. Tegan and I have been singing and dancing to every verse to this saucey album. 

I have been loving two - piece sets for summer! This Free People outfit - off the shoulder crop top paired with these wide legged pants are SO fun. I love that with this one outfit you can also mix and match both pieces with different articles of clothing, or can be worn together for a fun outfit. Perfect to throw on for summer! 

Tegan and I have had so much fun working with Free People on this 4 part summer style series! (We also have a VERY exciting giveaway coming up!)
