Style Story: So Long Sweet Pink Summer Days

On October third,
he asked me what day it was.

On Wednesdays, there's pink.
I just couldn't help myself.

The movie Mean Girls debuted over thirteen years ago yet I find myself referencing this iconic film to this day. I mean,
how can you resist?

While the leaves turn orange and the temperatures drop to Autumn, I want to reminisce on sweet summer days one last time. I don't think I've had a summer in the past where turning swimwear into streetwear was ideal nor posing in front of pink backdrops, let alone walking in the streets of Nolita showing lots of legs and midriff and skin. If summer truly is about letting loose, growing up a little and being more adventurous in both lifestyle and wardrobe, I think this past summer, 
I did just that.

And I'm glad.

With all of the violence and hate going on in the world that continually remind us how short, unpredictable and fleeting life is, there isn't much room for doubt and negativitytowards one another, especially towards ourselves. I think it's important now more than ever to just be. I think it's important now more than ever to own the body you're in, say what you feel, speak your mind and confidently trust yourself in everything you do. I have not fully attain all of this yet but I think I am on my way.

I hope I've inspired you to at least be on your way too.

Caught In Ruffled Reverie

It's June. Whenever I reach this particular month of the year, my mind wonders off to two simple thoughts: never-ending sunny happy days and a million miles of blue skies above me and checked off boxes on my laundry list of resolutions written in the beginning of the year.

But while expectations sky rocket and daydreams of said never-ending happy sunshine days commence, the sound of New York City rain hitting my umbrella breaks my reverie. This gloom is in fact our current reality.

Every new month poses the same mentality: new month, new possibilities. Whether it's one month or six months into the new year, there is always room for change and progress if you aren't afraid to let it happen. With that said, how are your New Year's resolutions going? For me, my list consisted a lot of DOING AND BEING MORE IN 2017. From traveling more to reading more and being present more to simply being myself more;

I am still working on it.
