flowers and stripes.

do you ever get dressed and fall in love with the outfit you picked out on the first try? it is a rare occurrence for me, but i picked out this outfit in one try! i just knew this bag would look perfect with stripes and some mustard yellow! on normal occasions i change about five times though, so do not be fooled. some of…

know that i love you, my every thought is of you.

all it takes is a tiny hint of loneliness to remember how wonderful human beings are to know, and to be surrounded by. when matt travels for work, i walk on lincoln road with claude and i gravitate toward the most logical place to find friends, j.crew. i spent the evening catching up with old co-workers, and remembering how beautiful it is just to KNOW…

anything answered: a vlog!

3 day weekends ☀

one extra day of the weekend increases my sense of adventure by about 80%. if only we could tack a few extra hours on of work to the other 4 days of the week and always have a three-day weekend! i am in daytona beach, florida– about 4.5 hours north of miami. so far i’ve… devoured the largest ice cream cone in my life (…

cherries and mint.

the other night i was cleaning the dishes and the thought of my own mortality (and that of my parents) popped into my head, and a little baby tear formed in the corner of my eyes. the kind that lingers there just long enough to slowly trickle down your face; just one tear, that is all. i am getting older, and sometimes i worry about…

miami beach moments.

oh dear what can i do, baby’s in black.

one of my favorite parts of attending fashion events is bringing others with me who are not bloggers. the fashion industry, to me, feels like this little world that is so far excluded from reality that it’s seemingly mythological until you are there, and in it. i can remember my first fashion event ever, when i worked backstage dressing models, and how chaotic and foreign…

a weekend at miami fashion week ♥

with Dany from Nany’s Klozet even during miami fashion week i refuse to wear heels (and maybe, just MAYBE NYFW could get me in 1-2 inch heels). sometimes i look around and feel like i am the only gal at the party in flats and a hat, but i like being me, and i like being comfortable! i wore this to the kick-off party of…

gentle people with flowers in their hair ✿

don’t you wish you felt as full of happiness on monday as you do on friday? friday’s always leave me thankful, giddy, open-minded and creative. it is somewhat heartbreaking that the thought of free hours in the day and personal freedom lead to this overflow of stimulation that sits dormant for such a large part of life. but alas, i guess that is why freelancers…

taking it easy.

hello there! i just got back from a quick roadtrip up to Orlando to see Deer Tick! It was a great show, plus i got to visit some of my old favorite college spots and see some old faces. i absolutely love the vibe of orlando– a mix between grungy hipster kids and cobblestone streets, plus there are so many thriving small businesses. i think…

date night dreamin’

happy monday after a lovely long weekend. matt worked all weekend, so we stole some quality time on friday night and walked to dinner and a movie. that’s my favorite part about living on miami beach– you can walk to dinner! and not to mention, pass a ton of interesting people-watching along the way. i wore an all-vintage getup– summertime makes me really love wearing…

miami beach dusk in florals.

miami is by far the most beautiful at dusk, so i of course had to capture it for this little ole’ miami fashion blog ♡ the houses are mint, the skies are cotton candy colored and me– well i match too, and not out of coincidence. i’ve been in the mood for pastel/vintage outfits, so here’s a fun one (i think). the blouse is a…

caturday date.

saturday is always my favorite day to wear cat clothing. i thrifted these overalls thankfully, because every pair i’ve tried on in stores fits me awkwardly! i have a small waist with hips, sometimes a tricky body type to dress 😉 vintage clothing usually does the trick. life has been extraordinarily busy, so when i have two hours to lie in bed with my puppy…

dusk in my room ♥

There is nothing more beautiful than that time of evening where the sun is shining a faint pinkish/red light through your bedroom window. As you get ready for a night out, you can feel it’s warmth peeking in. I adore that anxious feeling of getting dolled up, engulfed in my cozy place, and about to walk out into the world and the unknown. In my…
