If you know me well you know how obsessed with plants & flowers I am, no like seriously OBSESSED. The only problem is I’m still trying to figure out if I actually have a green thumb ? Ironic huh? I guess this is the reason I love spring & summer.
I recently flipped through the pages of the newest Elle magazine featuring my woman crush, Zoe Kravitz , when I stumbled upon an article called ” Flowers are never just flowers” and I was immediately intrigued.
Flowers have such a deeper meaning than just something pretty to look at. Have you ever realized how much meaning they hold ? They’re used as a grieving gift when a death may occur, as an apology to a loved one, finessing the shit out a first date, perfecting a weddings decor, adding color or flavor to food, and the list can go on for hours.
On this beautiful day roaming the lower east side I paid a visit to one of my favorite hidden gardens. I wore a men’s vintage button down shirt that I actually wore off one shoulder and used the sleeve as a waist tie. I paired the button down with my absolute FAVORITE Jbrand wide leg jeans. Jbrand jeans are seriously the most comfortable jeans I’ve ever worn, they fit like a glove and really accentuate your curves. On my feet I wore a pair of tan suede lace up sandals from Public Desire and of course I paired the look with my newest thrift shop pickup. If you follow me on Instagram, I bragged about my new wicker basket bag I recently discovered sitting on a shelf at the Goodwill for only 2.99! If you don’t thrift shop, girl you need to get up, get out and get something !
