    Those candles remind me of ones I saw up at a store near my parents’ in Vermont. The candle was made of some sort of wax blend that, when heated, turned into a nourishing hand treatment. (I wanted one so badly but it was a wee bit out of my souvenir budget for that trip.) Best of all it came in a hand thrown pottery vessel which I believe they sold refills of the wax blend for. It was so dreamy…

    I’m wearing almost the exact same denim jacket right now – but Levi’s. 🙂

    Also, that sun patch is the loveliest thing. <3

    Happy weekend!

    I also indulged in a new spring sweater. I’ve been on the search for an indigo cotton number for a few years and Mollusk Surf Shop put out the perfect slouchy fisherman’s sweater this spring and I also have no regrets!
