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.

trains across the sea

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!

Brrrr, it’s still FREEZING outside! Just because its cold, doesn’t mean you have to slack on style. Stand out this winter with your favorite winter coat! My coat of choice, is this white one from zara. The lines of this zara coat is so chic! Pair it off with a cream turtle neck for extra warmth, and slip into some leather skinnies for that slick look. I kept the shoes neutral to complete the outfit. Currently, I’m loving these tan booties from Dolce Vita.
