minimalist watches from charlize

Many of you are fully aware of my watch obsession, and Charlize is one brand of minimalist watches which I own not one or two styles – but several. So in honor (more like dread) of daylight savings time today, I thought it only appropriate to post one of the most beautiful ways to tell the time. (though let’s be real – I use my phone for that… watches are for decoration right?). photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | timepiece collection c/o:CHARLIZE (use code: dayinmydreams15 for 15% off!) | beige knit c/o:VIDEO | white jeans c/o:PARKER SMITH | gold stack rings c/o:GRAMERCI | silver hardware cuff c/o:GRAMERCI | gold weave bracelet c/o:CAROLYN COLBY | white marble iphone case c/o:RICHMOND & FINCH The time change hit softly for me this year, spending the hour in an Airbnb for a weekend in NY with not a place to go or thing to do other than cater to my lazy whims. Spending the first hours of the morning delved into the blog, and likely spending the other half with croissant and mimosa …

light and night

Playing with contrast. Two things contradicting each other, yet existing side by side can be a truly beautiful thing. They say opposites attract. While I can’t always agree with that, there is something to be said for differences making everything a bit more interesting. Without one side, how could you truly appreciate the other? If you want to see the whole bunch and caboodle side by side, go to New York. There isn’t a type of person there you won’t find. And in fact… I love it.

These pointed boots from Clarks have quickly become one of the most worn pairs in my wardrobe (and trust me, that’s saying a lot).

from the other side

Hope everyone survived Turkey day with nothing worse than food commas and pumpkin pie overdose. Gotta love a holiday that centers around over-eating. Seriously. I love it. And couldn’t have had a better weekend with a full house  of loved ones and record 65 degree and sunny afternoons. Finally, one year I don’t dread the post-turkey trot with frost icing over my face. #gobblegobble So yeah, coat weather… not such a big fan – sweater weather, that’s a whole other story. Who wouldn’t love cozying into this oversized knit from French connection (another TJMaxx find!) and wide leg trousers from Parker Smith. Why is it that the best denim always comes from California? Californians, I’m officially jealous of your cotton loving, jean weaving state. I must come visit you. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:NIKON D90 | knit:FRENCH CONNECTION | wide leg trousers c/o:PARKER SMITH | timepiece c/o: THE FIFTH | rings c/o:K D’Angelo Designs | ear cuffs c/o: BOUTIQUE MINIMALISTE New timepiece from The Fifth.

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.

day in my dreams

Took a dive, started on a whim, and ended up being one of the most incredible adventures I could have asked for – Happy 1st year anniversary to day in my dreams. The experience is beyond what I could ever have expected it to be, and you have made it that. Thank so much for supporting me from the very beginning through this first year. Your encouragement and inspirations have not only kept me blogging, but also brightened many days in my own personal life, like a close group of friends along for one of life’s many journeys. Having this opportunity to take something that is a passion and inner release for me, and being able to share that and interact with so many incredibly talented people, brands, and companies – is something I will be forever grateful for. I feel truly blessed. Also, feeling a bit cheesy (but truly want to know how grateful I am for each of you) after this extended speech – so let’s get back to it shall we? Thought it appropriate to make …
