I've learned, over time, one simple truth when building the self's inner confidence: 

The goal is not compare yourself to others, but to compare others to yourself. 

The reality (always has been, and always will be) that you are good enough. 

Always put yourself first.

Stripes, yellow, and pearls! Oh My!

There is a large sense of lethargy in my world. The simple task of taking a trail of thought, and the energy which one must consume in order to document such thoughts -- bring about an utter and total sense of loathing. Why not simply think it and be done with it? 

The beauty of the mind recorder is that it enables the thinker to return to these thoughts and be able to expand on them. To journey further into the mind where these wisps of ideas first originated from. The same thinker who was once too lethargic to give a literary symbols to these thoughts, is inhibiting his ability to expand on them at a later time. This is partly why the art of philosophy seems to be slowly dying out. 

My mind wanders to these moments at the most inconvenient times. The fleeting moments before sleep. The slow car rides on each monotonous morning. The small moments of silence nestled in my tiny corner of Corporate America. But how do you begin to make sense of a mind that is in constant and utter disarray. How does one reconcile their thoughts in this kind of life. One in which small moments are only available for brief moments during the hours of sunlight. 

But to overcome the lethargic impulses at night is to recover the scattered pieces of the days forays into the mind. It is to overcome the boundary between you and everlasting thoughts. If one was to simply take the time to record these thoughts upon arrival, they would not be left to scatter with the remnants of sleep. 

They would enable the thinker to create something that would live forever. 

"We all die. The goal is not to live forever, it is to create something that will."

Sometimes you just want to free fall into life. 

Take what the world has to offer and run wild with it. 

Play in the life's sandbox. 

The only thing I ask, is that you run by side.

Itty Bitty Mini Skirt


Mini Skirt: J. Crew | White Blouse: The Limited | Sunnies: Gap Inc. | Oversized Chain Bracelet: J. Crew | Leather Strap Watch: Michael Kors | Leopard Belt: The Limited | Black Pumps: Steve Madden | Purse: Chanel 

I've had this mini skirt in my closet for years. But I've come to the simple realization that all J. Crew pieces are timeless pieces. They never seem to go out of style. Paired with a leopard belt and white top, it's simple day into night outfit choice. 

This look can be easily adapted for casual outings with friends, or for a night out on the town. The look screams casual brunch and/or lunch date, but gives enough leeway to transcend into an after work drink at happy hour. 

Either way the color combo, paired with the bold statement pieces is enough to make any girl happy. 

Until next time friends <3

Black and White Basics


Black Dress: The Limited | Floral Statement Chain: J. Crew | Black Pumps: Steve Madden | Purse: Chanel | Ring Stack: Henri Bendel 

My outfit inspo is quite simple... literally. 

An ode to the simple basics of black and white. The white floral chain, big and chunky that it is, always pairs well with minimalist colors. It doesn't get any simpler than your basic black and white. 

The simple elegance of an all black ensemble, pairs with the perfect Chanel bag screams simple high fashion. 

These pieces are quickly becoming closet favorites. 

Until next time friends <3
