Snowy weather and ice cold winds aren't exactly my cup of tea, and often I can find it quite hard to stay happy during the winter, considering how much I'm devoted to being a summer gal. As of lately the thought of a warm breeze, sunny skies, and beautiful flowers has been a craving more desirable than chocolate! Yes, chocolate, this is serious. For those of you who don't live in a cold state or NYC in general this particular post might just serve for artistic purposes, but for me taking these flower photos was a serious escape into what a dream land summer is to me. Sometimes it's important to take those small things that bring us to our happy place and create a whole new work of art.
Today, looking out the window with the visuals of a white world it didn't phase me or surprise me one bit considering just how cold this winter actually is brrrrr... To maintain my winter sanity I usually keep flowers in my room and as I began to change my flowers and pour the water down the sink I noticed my flowers were dying. It wasn't until this very moment that I realized the sight of these flowers were my bliss. At first it upset me that they too had died along with the rest of summers flowers, then I really looked at them and realized they hadn't lost their beauty but in fact they had a new beauty formed around them in their entirety.
I managed to find a new perspective on winter in a matter of seconds
after this realization I tried to express the true art form that had just been reborn before my eyes. These photos are now my true blissful escape to a season I love. Without winter I wouldn't have these amazing photos and new found appreciation for the small beauty expressed so uniquely in every passing season... Cold or not we can all cherish a new detail.

As Winter creeps upon us, running outside the second the sun peeks over Octobers hues has been a daily routine. Yesterday was certainly a gorgeous one, I could't resist sitting outside my humble abode and sharing this lovely light with you fellow readers.
"If it is a crime to wear white after Labor Day, then make it a Lime Crime..." By that I totally mean trying something new such as changing your usual black liquid liner to this amazing Winter white color.

I have always admired bohemian everything, as of lately I have made the steps to slowly release all negativity in my life and just focus on finding every aspect of myself.

Wearing knits especially in the summer is uncommon and usually quite the style challenge, but I took the challenge since I absolutely am in love with these knitted hats from Collection 18! I have them in three amazing colors and can't wait to show you my collaborative style efforts on the blog! For this look I wanted to emulate a sort of modern day bohemian woman with almost effortless Parisian style. I just felt so cool bouncing around in my jellies walking through the meat packing district, drinking cool jasmine tea and making a surprising new discovery... blocking the sun from my eyes with this knitted baby!
Style Tip: Don't be afraid to try out the sporty look, add some touches of simple brass or minimalist jewelry to compliment the style!
Hope you all are having a beautiful Saturday!
