casual sport sneaker style

Kick back and let your hair down, summer is here and it’s time to squeeze the most enjoyment out of each day. There are so many experiences possible in life’s journey, and I plan to take as many as possible. So many times we get caught up in daily routine and forget to spend time relaxing or getting out to explore the world. Instead, have a mindset of get-up-and-go with a no-excuse attitude for getting stuck in the rut. So far so good with days spent poolside, mini trips to D.C., VA beach, NYC and beyond. What’s on your jetset list for the summer? Don’t make excuses of why next weekend might be better… GO! photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | slip-on slacks c/o:FABRIZIO GIANNI | leatherette top c/o:THE RUSHING HOUR (30% off with code: dayinmydreams30 ) | saddle bag c/o:DESIGUAL | purse pom pom c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | casual sport sneakers c/o:WINDSOR SMITH Nothing makes me feel more relaxed and ready to go than casual sneaker style that lets me run as fast as my feet will take me. …

sport white

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.

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 …

one should recycle

Apparently blue is my hue of the season. So there is a story behind this leather top… It all started one dreary day, when I had nothing to do but stare blankly out of my windows… (Ok sorry I’ll get to the point) I was going through my closet, which is a huge task in and of itself, and is saved for days only when I have ample amounts of time. Often times when I do so, I discover pieces that had been shoved so far back, they were totally forgotten. Many of those – they were back there for a reason. (Goodwill, here we come) But a few pieces, it’s like shopping all over again in boutique Kristina. Well, this was a tuck-back-to-the-depths or donate item. But then, sometimes beautiful things can come from what might otherwise appear to be worthless. I got to looking at it (believe it or not, it was a jacket back then, a very, very ugly jacket). Out came the scissors, and a few snips later – I was …

apparently jogging

Happy Friday followers. I don’t know about you but I was ready to make a dash out of the office no sooner than I had arrived. And apparently this ootd is just perfect to do so. I got asked twice at work if I was on my way out for a quick run. Which means I take sports influence way too seriously, or maybe it just really hasn’t caught on in this tiny town in Virginia yet. Either way, jog or not (let’s be honest, I prefer not) I’m feeling pretty content and ready to take on the weekend in my Nike track jacket and Dimmi trainers. – Sooner rather than later. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | dress:SILENCE+NOISE | track jacket:NIKE | sneakers:DIMMI
