So I may have titled this post ‘Black Florals‘, but after scrolling through all of the shots of me in this post I may as well name it ‘hair grab‘ since that seems to have become one of my ‘go-to’ poses while shooting new looks :p I am not quite sure how I always end up posing the same way (especially when whoever is shooting tells me to act ‘natural‘…my version of natural is being posed I suppose haha) but as I keep going through my iPhoto library I tend to see a ton of ‘hair grabbing / flipping’ shots #LongHairDontCare!
The past few weeks have been a little hectic for me which has in turn given me less time to blog, but rest assured once I am settled in to my new apartment with my little work area (complete with an instagramworthy set up of course :p) I will be back on track and writing tons more content (hopefully…fingers crossed haha)
Today is a bit bitter-sweet…by the time all of you are reading this, I will be on the road for my big move to California! If you didn’t catch Monday’s post, I announced that I am moving to LA and leaving the only place I’ve ever known, Long Island, for a new journey filled with great opportunities and of course some adventure.
It’s crazy to think I will be leaving my family and friends behind to venture out on my own and really become an adult but hey…it has to happen eventually right? Well I decided today was the perfect opportunity to do a little flashback to a look I shot a few weeks ago at one of my favorite Long Island hot spots, Prime American Kitchen & Bar (during my college years I actually hosted there during the summer). I have always loved being by the water and soaking up some sunshine so hostessing there was one of my favorite jobs and not to mention the food was kindaamazing…(and by kinda I mean it was in fact amazing!). Ok so maybe I am getting distracted…I love this look and even more the scenic Huntington Harbor backdrop (hey maybe it’s meant to be I am moving to LA…there is a Huntington beach in Cali isn’t there?)
Happy Monday Ya’ll! Sorry if I haven’t been writing as much the past two weeks but between my trip to LA a week ago and a newrevelation that just came about, I have been overwhelmed, swamped and just needed a moment to breathe (you know you have totally had those kind of weeks :p).
Now that I got that out of the way, I wanted to pre-warn ya that today’s outfit post is far from typical. I won’t just be talking about what I am wearing because honestly the news I have to share is WAY more exciting…
And…it’s Wednesday! The week is at it’s halfway mark and I couldn’t be happier! With this gorgeous spring weather all I want to do is be outside enjoying the sunny vibes so that’s exactly what I did this past weekend…and it just so happened to double as an opportune time to take photos…what can I say I tried to kill two birds with one stone :p
I am still having the struggle of transitioning pieces I loved during the winter into my spring wardrobe, so today’s look is a great way to still wear some of your winter sweaters in warmer temperatures (within reason of course). One way? With cropped skinnies and some bright sunnies and sexy sandals! Nothing transitions pieces like some perfect accessories and footwear right? 😉
The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and i can finally get back by the water to share some spring style. There is nothing I love more than being by the beach, the water and enjoying nice weather…which is exactly what I did all weekend. I did some spring shopping (did a little damage during the Lord & Taylor ‘Friends + Family Sale’ and got some preppy pieces from J.Crew…I can’t believe I haven’t shopped there more often) And I stocked up on new tech accessories for my car and my new iPhone which is coming in the mail tomorrow…can’t wait! I hear the camera quality on the 6 blows the 5 out of the water so I can’t wait to find out!
One of the other things I did this weekend was get outside and head to the beach to shoot this look. I have a thing for bomber jackets…I styled bomber jackets two different ways on the blog so far (here + here) and now here is one more…with a chic chiffon dress perfect for a spring date night or to go from the office to happy hour!
