Ugh finally some warm weather is coming in ! I totally take back all those times I bragged in February & March for the unusually warm temps! It feels like we’ve been battling April showers for most of May and now June. Not only has the rain put a damper on my mood and vibe it’s totally ruined my time to share some summer outfits. I have no clue what exactly is going on with the weather in New York but It’s given me no choice but to dwell on living some where much warmer.
I am such a summer-flower loving-beach bumming- roof top hopper that all I can dream of is Cali. I’m sure we all have went on vacation some where that made us reconsider returning back home. That place for me is California! I took a last minute unplanned 3 day vacation to L.A. about 3 summers ago & its been on my mind since. I lovedddd the free spirited vibes I felt everywhere I wandered, along with the warm & dry air ( if you live in New York you know how hectic the humidity can get). I felt right at home, in just 3 days I was convinced this is where I was meant to be.

While discussing my visit & my excitement with other past California residents now living in New York, I received a lot of negative feedback about LA in particular. Everyone pretty much agreed they could see me in Cali but not Necessarily Los Angeles, they suggested I visit other areas like Palm Springs, San Francisco, & San Diego before I commit to moving to Cali. So I guess I’ll have to re-write my vacation bucket list & add in an adventurous road trip around Cali in the mean time. Dude where’s my car ?

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 !

One job in New Jersey and the other in New York. Continue reading
