This book. Always this one.

“What Corrigan wanted was a fully believable God, one you could find in the grime of the everyday. The comfort he got from the hard, cold truth–the filth, the war, the poverty–was that life could be capable of small beauties. He wasn’t interested in the glorious tales of the afterlife or the notions of a honey- soaked heaven. To him that was a dressing room for hell. Rather he consoled himself with the fact that, in the real world, when he looked closely into the darkness he might find the presence of a light, damaged and bruised, but a little light all the same. He wanted, quite simply, for the world to be a better place, and he was in the habit of hoping for it. Out of that came some sort of triumph that went beyond theological proof, a cause for optimism against all the evidence. ”

Classic Combo.

by: Kayley Anne

I know I’ve been wearing this white on top, denim on bottom combination a lot. Something about this classic look has captured my attention lately. It feels effortless, but stylish, and is a simple go-to for most of my days. This look was photographed in Grand Rapids. I was in town the first week of [...]
