Reflecting on blogging edition 2015, there have been more unexpected challenges and exciting opportunities than I ever could have imagined. So much can change and develop in just a year’s time, here’s to you for joining in on the ride. One such opportunity that I’ve been just dying to share with you guys: I’ve joined up with the Berskha team for a series of features on their blog! You can see shots from the first shoot below, on a journey through D.C. Their team has been incredible to work with, and their collection is simply amazing. It was difficult for me to narrow down which pieces I wanted to style together for each shoot, but settled on some solid basics and nautical accents for this story of the city. They are an international retailer, so their broadened scope of fashion and trends can really be seen in the details of each item. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | head to toe c/o:BERSHKA Gotta love being surrounded by some of the nation’s most monumental pillars of alabaster marble. Want the full scoop?

Sitting and contemplating today’s topic of conversation. Somehow my mind isn’t pulling any specific thoughts together, which I think just might be a good thing. Not that I’m condoning mindless leisure, but really – we all need a mental break sometimes.  And honestly, it feels absolutely lovely. There is something beautiful in the quiet stillness of this moment. As if the entire world has gone blank… in a new, fresh sort of way. Apparently correlating fashion into my demeanor with a similar blank canvas. Discovered CYEOMS as a great source of unisex basics, and dressed this shirtdress understated with milky white essentials. The cotton is super soft, and I like having the option of wearing it as either a dress or shirt. Did someone just say beach cover up? #ohthepossibilities. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | shirtdress c/o:CYEOMS | backpack:FOREVER21 | timepiece c/o:FJORD | iphone case c/o:FELONY | marble earings c/o::ROCKSBOX (use my code: dayinmydreamsxoxo for a free month of jewelry!) | sneakers:NIKE AIRMAX Rockin my euro style with a normcore kick.

where we go

Our world is forever moving, and the places it takes us are a mixture of beauty, excitement, sadness, joy, and the unexpected. Life wouldn’t balance without a little of each. I find it best to accept all with a sort of reverence to the bigger picture, which our minds are so often incapable of comprehending in the moment.  This week has been a blur of each, as I say goodbye to two of my dearest friends. (no, they didn’t die). Their lives are taking them on beautiful adventures! And I couldn’t be more excited for the new opportunities they’ll experience with a change in work and new surroundings. So proud of you guys… but seriously… did you both have to leave in opposite directions in the same flippin week?? #youleftmeallalone jk I’ll be visiting soon. And to my friends that remain, I’m sorry but you’ll be experiencing an increased dose of me in weeks to follow. With the addition of fall setting in, I’ll be searching for life’s little comforts. On the east coast, it’s been sunny and 75 …

say you’ll remember me

Walked into the grocery store this weekend to the welcoming aroma of freshly brewed, pumpkin spice latte, only to discover on my way out that it was actually perfumed pinecones… who came up with this madness?! While usually apprehensive of the changing of the seasons (hey fall fans… did you forget that WINTER comes next??)… this year I actually find myself quite ready for the cool morning air. Feels like a fresh start every day. Plus, I have been eying my growing stack of knit sweaters that I’m dying to get into. So much so, that I would actually feel a bit deceitful if I did not also share with you, that I am currently wearing said sweater – even though outdoors should reach the mid-eighties today. Hey – it’s cool in the air conditioning. #dontjudge White after Labor Day? Bring it on. (I just realized all of my paragraphs begin with “W” today… weird) Wearing a new top from Danice Stores that was a total steal, and layering on the white for fall transition. Fashion rules are made to …

i’ve already forgotten you

Learning to let go. The future is now, and the only direction she moves is forward. Took Friday off for an impromptu holiday. Not a thing to do or place to go. Just because the sun was shining, and I thought it best to indulge. Something about being “wasteful” with my sparse vacation time – it felt wicked good. Ended up at the beach for a day with my girl boo, a fresh set of soft tan lines, and a closet full of clean laundry #winning Expressing my oh-you…-that-was-so-yesterday attitude in this sexy 2pc set from Rose gal. Wore it as a swim cover too… whacha gonna do about it. Like it? I got two by accident (how does that even happen?). But good for you! Because I’m giving away the second set on my Instagram, so check it out HERE and enter to win. Warning: it’s see-through, so wear a slip (or don’t…) your call. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | 2pc set c/o:ROSE GAL | timepiece c/o:CHRISTIAN PAUL | trainers:BDG Trying to decide if my obsession with marble has …
