what I made.

You wake up, pour a cup of coffee, go to work, do stuff. You don’t always realize what you’re creating unless you start out with the intention to do so. It wasn’t until I spent a #selfcareSaturday cozy in bed, in need of a healthy soup that I realized all the creative potential I’ve been tapping into lately.

And so ends another great week in 2016; another getaway, another nap curled up on the couch, another lunch comprised of leftovers from brunch and another week where I wore a sweater to work backwards by accident. I love 2016 already. Everything about its sleep-in-late-and-watch-The-Hangover-3-while-your-boyfriend-makes-breakfast kind of mood has been good for my soul. It’s been a long time coming but I think that 2016 is going to be quite the year.

What 2015 Taught Me

As I’m sitting here agonizing over what to say in my return to blogging, I realize that it is only getting harder to hone in one one specific topic or excuse for my inconsistency. The truth is, for the past few weeks, I have been happily living my life, missing summer (like ACTUAL summer), consuming my body weight in holiday treats and reminiscing on the adventures of the past year. I have made more trips to the new Primark location at Downtown Crossing than I am willing to admit, snuggled with everyone’s favorite four-legged sidekick Lucy and logged some serious hours at the ballet studio. I have loved every minute of it but now it’s time to reflect on how each of these memories has culminated into the person I’ve become over the past year.

Closet Remix: Summer to Fall

As is customary on most Monday holidays, I spent the morning in my pajamas and played in my closet. It was the perfect day to assess what pieces will carry me into fall as the temperature drops without needing to completely re-up on stylish components.

Cool Girl Summer Style

Currently, it’s humid night and I’m sitting in a jersey Citizens of Humanity dress while I try to cool off with a brownie sundae. With the threat of thunderstorms and the holiday weekend rapidly approaching, I’m seriously questioning how I’m going to survive the next couple of months, sartorially speaking.

Survival Tips For Your Quarter-Life Crisis Any Day of the Week

With four months to go, I can nearly say I’ve survived my quarter-life crisis. That being said, the struggle is so very real and I can personally attest that there have been quite a few instances where I have felt disappointed or overwhelmed. When people talk about the “formative years”, I’d like to think they specifically mean your twenties, a period of time where you are literally forming into the person you will ultimately become, encountering, enduring and appreciating situations all on your own without the help of anyone else.

Because you're only mostly grown up.
