Photo Diary // Cherry Blossoms & Brooklyn








I finally unpacked my SLR and totally remembered back in May that I saw the breath taking cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Even though it was bustling with people — the first true lovely Spring weekend — it was such a peaceful and meditative experience to walk through the gardens.

Outfit // Killer Colors

{ June 10, 2014 }

H&M motorcycle jacket; ICB dress; Modcloth heels.

Whew! It’s been a crazy month — hence the sporadic and late posts. What’s happened? I moved to a new kick ass apartment in Brooklyn, finished up a long but eventful year teaching 9th and 12th grade, and somehow managed to sneak some fun in here and there amongst the chaos. All while wearing this dress fit for a superhero. 

Photos snapped by my main bestie, Christine, on my iPhone because who knows where my SLR is until I unearth all of these boxes. 

Outfit // Floral Print Dress

{ May 10, 2014 }

Thrifted Crossroads dress; Vera Meart cat cross body purse; Modcloth sandals; Mini minimarket sunnies.

I think we all need to agree that this cat purse is perfection. One of my favorite things about warm weather is feeling free. Just grabbing a printed dress, sunglasses, and a cute bag — and I’m off. 

Little Flower

Phillip Lim for Target dress; H&M motorcycle jacket; LA Fenice sandals; 
Anthropologie sunglasses.

Can we talk about how awesome this floral print Phillip Lim for Target dress is? I bought this dress on a whim and wore it once and never thought much of it. A few months later, I can’t get enough of it. 

The pink hair? Don’t be fooled - it’s a Ricky’s hair extension. It’s so much fun to play around with other hair colors, without the commitment.

Touch of Mod

{ April 26, 2014 }

Asos dress; H&M motorcycle jacket; GC Shoes via Alter; Vera Meat cat bag; Mini Mini Market sunglasses.

Oh, the cat bag. Can we talk about this cat bag and how I’m seventeen kinds of infatuated love with it? Yes, I am. I love a good cross body: tiny and cute but magically holds all of the things I need for the day. Perfecto.

Secondly, I’m vibing all over these white collar and black dress combos lately. Maybe subconsciously, I just want to live inside a French New Wave film. 

Weekend Casual

{ April 19, 2014}

Tobi shirt; H&M motorcycle jacket and jeans; Mini Mini Market sunglasses & bag; nOir ring; Forever 21 flats.

On warm days, I love to dash out the door with my favorite moto jacket and grab an iced tea from Ovenly and a sea salt chocolate chip cookies. Then, I wander over to Transmitter Park to do some people (and dog!) watching and stare dreamily at the skyline. Read a book, write a little poem, these are my favorite kinds of lazy weekend afternoons.

Bow Tied

Because any time is the right time to rock a bow tie.

The past year or so, I’ve been shifting. My aesthetics are veering towards more retro inspired looks, especially pieces that seem to step out of a 1960s French or Italian film. Black and white combos make me feel classy and put together — definitely a newish staple to my wardrobe. 

Heaven In A Black Leather Jacket

{ April 12, 2014 }

BB Dakota Leather Jacket via South Moon Under; Forever 21 dress; Circus by Sam Edelman flats; Bauble Bar necklace; Vintage opal earrings, gift from my grandmother; Urban Outfitters sunglasses.

I’m 77 kinds of excited that I can just walk out of the door in just a leather jacket and one of my favorite little black dresses. Talk about a winter of discontent. 

On the Shore

Fox’s cardigan; Random black tank top; House of Harlow Arla skirt; Karen Millen flats; Anthropologie sunglasses.

California. I already miss the warm sunshine.
