Pack your sandals, strap on a pair of booties and get to exploring.

A Slice of Life | Keep It Classic

I’ve always been a sucker for classic cars, so I was thrilled with the opportunity to spend some time with a gorgeous Chrysler New Yorker. It seemed as though everyone walking through Cardiff were also keen on it; we had tourists and locals alike coming up to snap photos and admire the beautiful car. I also received some sweet compliments on my retro outfit, featuring SWELL’s mania top, Raga printed bell-bottom pants, BC buckle sandals, RAEN Fairbanks sunnies, and my mom’s vintage hat!

SeaMade: Best Of

leadimage_chris grant
Transitions are an inevitable part of life. Whether they are planned or unexpected, they keep life interesting and push our limits. This week marks the transition of SeaMade to my new blog, The Salty Wolf.  I’d love it if you checked it out and bookmarked it for future reading. There will be lots of fun adventures and creative works featured to keep you inspired and pushing outside your comfort box.
But before we say farewell to SeaMade, let’s take a look back at a few of my favorite posts over the last year..
