No, I do not live by the beach. However, I do live by a creek! Living in Ohio, there is an abundance of two things for sure; flat lands and lame rivers. Regardless, I still got to enjoy a beautiful day lounging near the water and embracing the breezy weather. Here I am wearing a body con dress layered over with a basic slouchy tee. The print of the dress is reminiscent of 80′s abstract pastel art, which is totally awesome at times. Mix that with a shirt with a scene of the 60′s to make it doubly awesome.
It’s starting to get a bit sunny outside! I decided to celebrate by taking a walk in my favorite neighborhood in German Village. I was in a cheery mood so I decided to color block. When color blocking separates I like to keep basic color theory in mind. Here I used a basic triadic scheme with the neon yellow/green skirt, blue blazer and orange watch. With those basic color set, I kept the rest neutral with the white lace shirt and white shoes.
I recently accidentally stumbled upon this abandoned warehouse decorated with local artwork on the south side of downtown Columbus. I was rather intrigued by the graffiti art and to whom it was paying homage to. Turns out, Train’s Across the Sea is a song written by the Silver Jew’s in the early 90′s.
I looked up the song and I think it’s a pretty morbid. There’s a man who dreams of trains across the sea where there are “no troubles on the line.” Instead his life passes by and he lives as if there is no worth in it, like a series of boredom and bad events has created an apathetic attitude. I think passion is such a scary thing to lose, whether it’s a strong love or intense hate, it moves you towards a goal. So kids, make those choices that will drive you forward. Live with passion so you don’t become victim to apathy, live the life you will be happy with.
Anyways, here’s my outfit. (I wear this pleated maxi almost every day.)
Something about wearing all white makes a woman pop out, especially in her colorful surroundings. I know all white can be a scary thing, but don’t be afraid to try it! When experimenting with an all white look, always keep it simple. That way, it always stays clean and sharp. It definitely makes a high impact!
If I could dress causally fancy everyday, this is exactly how I would do it! To dress it up, simply accessories your jewelry for more formal occasions. To wear it more casually, dress it down by throwing over a denim or leather jacket. Since it’s still a little chilly out, I wore my Dolce Vita nude booties. However, when the weather warms up I can’t wait to pair this dress with some gladiator sandals or some strappy wedges.

On my way to lunch! This is what I wore on my walk to Cafe Illyria on 214 E State St, Columbus, OH 43215. If you’ve never been, it’s a quiet little cafe in downtown Columbus that serves a BOMB chicken panini.
Life is a chaotic little thing. While juggling through one’s own happiness, there is a daily mental exhaustion of thoughts spiraling through the mind. There are obligations to fulfill, people to please, money to make! When I get a chance, I like to simplify my mornings by slowing down. Occasionally, taking the time for yourself to unwind before the start of your day creates room to breathe. Start off with your best, and move forward with that mindset! If you could devote your mornings to simply savoring your favorite senses, fully present and aware, how would you spend it?
Here’s what my simple perfect mornings would look like:
1. indulging in makeup
2. picking out accessories
3. pampering my toe nails (most days they’re gross)
4. finishing up a book and skimming through magazines
5. drinking fancy tea (my favorite? Green tea, cinnamon bark, cardamom, and saffron leaves)
