#NowPlaying: Every Time the Sun Comes Up

Every time the sun comes up, I’m in trouble 

Every time the sun comes up, I’m in trouble 

People say I’m a one-hit wonder 

But what happens when I have two? 

I washed your dishes, but I shit in your bathroom 

 

Sharon Van Etten, sing it to me girl. Tap here is you need something groovy.

I’m known amongst my friend group as the girl who likes to hide in her clothes. Read: if it’s not oversized, it’s not for me. So sometimes I think it’s a little contradictory that I also love weird-ass patterns, bright shit and overall fun stuff. The weirder the pattern, the better. (Side note, have you seen this? And don’t you love it?) I’d never really thought about a full, two piece outfit before until this amazingly groovy Clayton set came my way.

If you haven’t seen their collections, I’d check them out.

Sometimes when you put on an outfit, it makes you feel a certain way. Kind of like when you listen to a particular song and next thing you know, somehow you’ve found yourself in a silk kimono robe (why do I have one of these?!), sloppily holding red wine and dancing around your record player as the vinyl spins. Who do I think I am? Penny Lane? Maybe. Eh, you caught me. I paired this Clayton piece with one of my favorite Sharon Van Etten songs for a reason.

‘Every Time the Sun Comes Up’ is kind of dark and moody, but also a little comedic when you really take a hard listen. I like the slow hits of the drums against her swoony voice and the melodic guitars that make you feel like just swaying a little (or a lot, I don’t know your life). We shot the Clayton Aspen top and Jaya skirt in a remote volcanic cone right at 5:30. It was pretty moody. And I think wearing the red against the stark, dark background made me feel a little badass. Sometimes you just really freaking like the way something makes you feel.

It’s not because of the jersey knit material which hugs nicely, but because of the essence of the piece that I like this Clayton combo. It feels very 70s and free-spirited and that’s what I like about it. Like, I could wear it out and just dance around, party of one, with no cares. Fill my arms with jewelry and my fingers with rings and wear some crazy amazing mules. I mean, it’s red so it’s bright and brings attention – but I don’t think that bothers me. For some reason, I just feel wild and free when I wear it. But also like, a little moody and mysterious.

If you haven’t caught on now. I basically picture myself dancing around in it, listening to a little Sharon, and prancing around on a volcanic cone in the desert. Oh wait, maybe that’s actually what happened. I dunno.

Maybe it’s because I’m an aspiring screenwriter who doesn’t do enough with her every day life, works from home, and has like….four friends (whoops), but I just like to imagine my life in scenes. Or like mini-music video vignettes. I think the moral of this story here is to find and put together pieces and outfits that make you feel like you’re living out one of those exciting daydream scenes. Trust me, it will keep things a lot more interesting.
