a moment in time

As much as some sick part of me misses being able to sleep in my college dorm twin bed til noon, I’ve learned that the best mornings always start early. (Or maybe that’s just what I tell myself now that I can rarely keep myself still after my eyes peep open in the morning). Regardless, being able to enjoy the first of fall’s cool air shifting through my window screens over a hot cup of green tea…. that = happiness. Welcome to a look inside my home on one such morning. And do you know what else makes me happy? Online shopping. There are worser vices right? #addict And I swear I’ve just discovered the most fun online shopping experience that I’ve ever had. Literally, you get to search for $2 coins hidden all over their site everyday. On the 24th of each month, you get to spend them on their curated selection of designer clothes. Oh, and did I mention you can save up to $180 a month in coins for said shopping spree? DID SOMEONE SAY FREE ONLINE SHOPPING? …

Worlds colliding this week with preparation for FFaNY and WWDMagic, in addition to having family in town for the next couple of days. Yet again, finding myself wishing there were a few extra hours in each day, but then – that’s better than wishing them away. The past few months have brought with them many changes, and I find my heart to be as restless as the world around me. On the brink of a breakthrough, or on the edge of devastation – some part of me finds pleasure in the conflict. It’s like being a speck caught in a whirlwind – and as unsettling as that might sound, the adrenaline rush is totally worth the ride. Carrying over the winds into this week’s wardrobe, I found myself playing a lot with combining sport elements into a casual-tailored blend. Those mornings when you find just the right combo and think… “yes. heck yes. today is going to be a killer day…” yeah, it was like that. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | kimono:FOREVER21 | shoes c/o:CLARKS  |  double bar cuff c/o:ROCKSBOX (use code:DAYINMYDREAMSXOXO for a free …

First of all, don’t mind the same J Brand jeans two post in a row… told you they were a staple! (I did laundry I swear) Second of all, these photos were taken on 11/11, the month and day, not the time – however I am considering them to be lucky all the same. Lastly, I know it’s been a hot spell since my last post, travels have kept me away, but I’ll be sure to fill you in on the posts to come. For now let’s just say the past 10 days I have been in NYC, Wisconsin, Florida, and finally back home to Virginia. So the short of it – I’m going to bed immediately after this post is written, even though it’s currently 7:15PM. What it is (in my best gangster voice): The coat is called Ada by Marc New York, so immediately I thought it would be fabulous. The leather detailing on the sleeves sold me in a heartbeat. Sadly, it collects lint like CRAZY. Had this discussion with a couple …
