The snow is finally melting and I'm waiting for the sun to come out.
Like I promised, I am finally back with outfit posts, kicking it off with this schoolgirl-inspired look. It's no secret that I am an absolute sucker for any sort of statement collar. I particularly love a sweet peter pan, however a crisp pointed collar like this one is a close second. The dress is so simple so I styled it up with these polka dot tights and cute little bow flats. Also I couldn't resist adding this red hat... I pretty much always have to have at least a little bit of color in all of my outfits. As for this polaroid camera, I found it at a thrift store the other day and couldn't resist giving it a try. Who knows if it will work, but I've always been a glass-is-half-full girl, so I am hoping for the best! Plus it made a whimsical little prop.
Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!

A new month, is a fresh start...
Hello again, lovely blog friends! It's been a moment, hasn't it? I apologize for my long pause from blogging, but I decided to start fresh with the month of March for many reasons.
On the lighter side, t's one of my favorite months. If you're lucky, the weather starts to get a bit warmer, trees start to blossom, and flowers start to bloom. Winter's gloominess begins to fade away and things all around seem just a bit brighter. On another note however, the reason for my pause is not-so-fun. I am not quite ready to get into the details of it all yet ( I swear one day I will ) , but what I'm willing do delve into now is bluntly this: After seven ( has it really already been S-E-V-E-N?!) wonderful years of blogging, I hit some sort of wall. My inspiration was fading for some inexplicable reason... a writer's block if you will. The truth is, I am only human and I was mentally exhausted. Life's stresses got the better of me, and keeping up with the blog I have loved for so long just was not at the top of my priority list. When I invite people to my page, I want to fill your eyes with beauty. I want to share life's wonderful moments and leave you feeling happy with those warm fuzzy feelings. But alas, life is not always that way and I am just like all of you. Boyfriends, break-ups, being completely broke, fights with friends, questioning my life's existance... as a 20 something, these are problems I face too. So while I was, let's say 'figuring my life out', I decided to take a break from blogging since my heart just wasn't fully in it.
A month later it's crazy for me to even write this because after my little hiatus, I've taken a step back, traveled back to Texas for a bit, spent the month reflecting on what i DO have. I traveled around the state with friends, reviving my mind, body and soul. No, things still aren't perfect, I am still figuring things out ( I don't know if I ever won't be) , but I feel completely refreshed. Like after a long pause my whole spirit finally hit play again. I can genuinely say that I feel happier than I have in a long time. And with all that happiness I want to share it all with you, the way I used to! I have many things planned to share with you all this March. Including two exciting trips that I plan to document fully, my beauty routines, 35 mm photography, music I am currently into, my thrifting secrets, and of course my daily outfits!
I've always said that I am trying to find beauty in everything. What I have been doing this last month is finding beauty in myself. ❤

Oh boy has it been a while! I have to say...
I have missed you all so much! I know my absence was quite a long one. Maybe a bit too long, but what can I say... after almost five years of blogging I needed just a bit of a break to gather inspiration and just have a bit of a cleanse. It's been a strange past month with it's ups and downs. But I have started the new year with a clear head and goals to make it the best year yet! I just got back to NYC from a refreshing trip to Texas where I got to spend time with friends and family. Now I am back in my favorite city in the world, ready to kick this years butt!
I am starting off my first post year with a partnership from DailyLook! This adorable native-inspired coat is from their site, a piece I knew I had to have! I love the faux-fur lining and have been rocking it on these super cold nyc days we have been having. Anyway, expect to see a lot more of me this month! Cannot wait to share with you all everything I have in store.
And say hello to my absolute favorite Christmas sweater! I am sure you all have seen it on my blog/instagram, but here I paired it with my new favorite dress from 23 Skidoo Clothes !
I just love an exaggerated collar, so obviously I was immediately drawn to this dress. Plus I am a sucker for the LWD. I wore this dress in a more casual setting so I paired this sweater over it. I definitely plan on wearing it to upcoming holiday parties though. It has a beautiful white floral detailing underneath that I can't wait to share with you all.
Anyways, it's a dreary Monday here in NYC, but I am making the most of it! Headed to a holiday party tonight with some of my favorites. Hope everyone is having a good one.
