NYFW S/S 2018 Day 3 OOTD

Day 3: aka one of my craziest, most stressful days of NYFW to date! Between the madness of the shows, I managed to get a few shots of one of my favorite outfits for the week.

NYFW S/S 2018 Day 2: A Childhood Shawl and Eight More Miles in my Stilettos

It's that time of year again, when all of a sudden thousands from the fashion area flock from all around the country to run around New York in more sequins and feathers than a craft store.

  That's right, New York Fashion Week is upon us and in the madness I forgot to recap my OOTD from Day 1 {although you can see it on Instagram by clicking here}. Nevertheless, day two I took a completely different direction for my look, jumping out of my comfort zone.

Getting Nauti in Lilly Pulitzer Shorts

  If there's any summer wardrobe essentials I can't live without, Lilly Pulitzer shorts, gold wedges, and white tops with the perfect details are at the top of that list. Those three items make it easy when I haven't the haziest as to what to wear I'm trying to run out the door because I'm already running late the who knows what.

Currently on Repeat: Week of July 23rd, 2017

  If there's one thing I love about summer, it's my playlist. Since I haven't done a music update in a while, I figured I'd take a moment to share some of the songs that have been the soundtrack to my summer!

  If you'd like to play all of this music nonstop {like I've been} click this link to play through this entire list on one nonstop playlist!

1. Mura Masa - Mura Masa {the entire album, but especially "What if I Go? featuring Bonzai"}
      This album. Released just over a week ago, Mura Masa strikes again with the perfect chill EDM album and I've fallen in love.

2. "Slow Down Love featuring Chelsea Cutler" - Louis the Child
      This is currently my most played song at the moment. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Louis the Child and although some of their most recent releases haven't been my favorite, this song is no disappointment.
      "Slow it down, love, it's too bright out there | Out there | Hold on, love, you're walking thin air | Thin air"

I Don't Love Myself, but I'm Trying -- and Here's Why

 It's a strange feeling to admit to yourself that you don't love yourself.

  So often we look at ourselves in the mirror and critique. We pick ourselves apart citing any reason we possibly can find as to why we look less than perfect: our waist, the length of our hair, our dark circles, our eyebrows. Maybe it's all at once, maybe it's just spread out, but for me, I never realized just how often I do until I started thinking about it, because it's constant, and I don't actually think I can look at myself in a mirror without finding a plethora of things that I just don't like about myself.

  So often, we look back at past conversations and things we did and just ask ourselves "why?" Why couldn't we have been better, why couldn't we have been less awkward, why didn't the other person like us as much as we liked them, why did he leave me on "opened" or "read," why didn't we get the promotion instead of the other person, the list goes on.

  So often, the answer to all of those questions is "us." We're convinced that we were left on read or didn't catch someone's interest because we are the problem.
