Ryan Adams & The Shining

brooklyn fashion blogger

Last week I saw Ryan Adams play Summerstage in Central Park. My friend Kayli and I had been anticipating this show for MONTHS. For me, Ryan's music has always been tied to a certain ex, who introduced "Heartbreaker" to me years ago. It was bittersweet seeing Ryan live - nonetheless one of the best shows I've ever been to. 

It's kind of funny how one can attach certain foods, places, songs, records.. art or anything to a certain person. My ex is turning 30 this year and I'm talking to boys on Tinder about Pokemon. Truth is, you shouldn't let heartache or heartbreak spoil the things you love.

Still, the reason I love Ryan Adams so much is the fact that he is such a god damn misfit. It's ok to be who you are, wherever you are in life, as long as you are doing what is making you happy. As long as you can unpack your feelings and instead of feeling sad or wistful, just enjoy those memories that are triggered when you hear "Come Pick Me Up." Ryan fucking Adams making me feel the feels, then making me feel okay about those feelings. What a guy.

#feels #feelings #allthefeels how many times can I say FEELINGS? Actually, there's a pretty good Spotify playlist titled ALL THE FEELS. You should check it out.

Oh, hi mom! Thanks for reading. Sorry not sorry 'bout putting my business on the internets.

I picked up these vintage rings from The Times Vintage, a shop my super gorgeous / artsy / talented / kind friend runs in North Fork on Long Island. Greenport, to be exact. I recently went out there and couldn't believe the last tmie was almost three years ago! Below are some moments from when I saw Liz last that I photographed on film.. when she was just starting out with her store.
