rainy summer days// vintage floral shorts

sometimes it's hard to admit to yourself that a style just isn't right for you-- which was the case for me with short-shorts. i have a small waist and hips, and i am not complaining about it, but i look really odd in mini cut-offs. when i was younger i felt silly being the only girl at the party not in denim short shorts or chinos, but now i happily accept that high waisted vintage shorts with a longer length are more my thing. it seems like looser fitting shorts are everywhere this summer, which makes me so happy! guess i was just MADE for high waisted vintage shorts!

who else prefers these type of shorts? some of my friends say they would look ridiculous in high waisted, but now it's just my normal!

p.s. it rains here every. single. day. =(

With every inch of my being i believe in fate. 

has anyone watched the film "the secret"? i had a teacher play it in fashion school, and while it is filmed cheesy(queue elevator background music), i connected so strongly with its message. bad things happen, yes. some weeks are hard, some days are hard-- some MINUTES are hard. but the goals that i've set my mind to i have always aways accomplished. 

the energy we put out into the world has to have some effect on desired outcomes, otherwise life is just a long strand of odd coincidences. and things fall into place way too many times for coincidence to truly exist. what do you guys think?

Do you ever love a song so much that you replay it halfway through?

Do you ever love a day so much that you could die happy if it ended by noon?

I wrote that down in the "notes" section of my phone the other day, after replaying the Ben Gibbard Former Lives cd about 8,000 times, and never feeling quite sick of it. 

this blog has done wonders for me, but sometimes i have to admit i quite dislike it (not you, but it). these pictures, this writing, this space-- it does not really capture even 1/30th of me. sure, i've tried to share snapshots of where i work, or where i walk to, or the meals that end up in my digestive tract, but none of that can portray how i FEEL. how i talk, how i laugh, how i think. i am a human being, just a human being with a camera taking pictures of all of the best moments in my life. it doesn't differentiate me from anybody else, really. anybody can have a blog, anybody can take photos on the day that they dress up, and anybody can create a "brand" for their life. my brand and me, we are two different monsters. sometimes i just hope that the world knows that.

we traveled to madrid with matt's family to meet his 91-year-old grandpa. it was a family reunion of matt's dad's side of the family, and his siblings and cousins flew from all over the world (buenos aires, serbia, new mexico, etc.) to be there! it was wonderful being able to meet new relatives, and to learn about the history of my (now) family name! it added new meaning to my new last name, and made me feel even more a part of the fam!

we spent day one wandering around near the Gran Via and Plaza Mayor. i thrifted this vintage dress right before we left, and it was a definite staple all trip! europe is the perfect place to dress creatively and pull out my favorite vintage finds, because the backdrops are so beautiful! i will be back to share more soon! xo

after an 8 hour flight to London and a 3 hour flight from London to Madrid, we arrived! Yesterday we made sure to stay up all day to combat the time change, and falling asleep was the BEST thing in the world. i forgot how it felt to walk the narrow streets of spain, but the second we walked around the feeling came back! some places don't feel too different from the US, but Spain definitely does. Everyone walks with such an ease in their step, and there is never a rush!

i wore this outfit out to dinner with maria the night before we left. we snapped some outfit pictures before we ate sushi! it's really great to have "blogger friends" but having "friends who blog" is even better. there is definitely a difference between the two! i will be back sharing pictures from madrid soon! xo

walking around the streets of long beach, long island, on one of the most beautiful days of the year. it was a lovely mixture of sunny and windy-- the kind of day that makes you want to park your towel on the sand and fall asleep. after traveling so much this month, i've realized that success to me means being able to see new places and try new things all while making a living. i've realized that working hard feels so great because of the reward that comes later on. love to work, love to play!

i am off to Madrid.. if you have any suggestions on where to go/see, please share! xo

i flew up to long beach, new york to surprise my aunt for her 60th birthday party this weekend. it was a quick "pop" in, and a lovely reminder of how lucky i am to have such a fun, supportive and absolutely crazy family waiting for me in the best state in the world.

of course i tried to pack some fun outfits for the trip, and i though these overalls from LuLu's would be just perfect! they were originally pants, but i shortened them for the summer! the long beach boardwalk feels a lot like coney island without the ferris wheel and arcade games, and it is always so breezy and beautiful to walk around and soak in the sunshine. let's just say i am back in rainy humid florida and having major NY withdrawals =(!

happy friday from miami florida! even though we're all reading this from different parts of the world, we all can enjoy the same feeling of FRIDAY! what a great universal feeling. i am off on a mini vacation, and will of course snap photos along the way. (you can follow on my instagram!)

this heart romper had my love from the second i laid eyes on it, although i do wish it was a TINY bit longer. i am not one to wear anything super duper short, but i guess HEY why not embrace being 20-something while i can, right? i just prefer to be a bit more covered up-- who is with me?
