Life & Thoughts

Summer Mood Board.

Ah, we’re currently living it up in the season of the shining sun! I’ve written a winter mood board post before, where I let flow my tangible perceptions of the cold season. Summer brings with it a host of different sensations, textures and moods. So I decided to bring to life my cognizance of summer (ooh fancy) quite similarly to its colder clime version.
Jump right in, let us? *the poorest Yoda imitation ever*
