My (late) New Year's Resolution

January 12, 2016

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not big on new year’s resolutions. There is nothing wrong with them but I never keep them haha I always try to workout more, swear less, and work harder but my goals and dream tend to change a bit as the year progresses. I just like to make a general list of things I’d like to try in the new year. For example, I think last year I wanted to get closer to God, travel more, and expand my blog. These were things I knew I could achieve realistically and that I would happily want to continue. I joined a new Church, budgeted for and planned an amazing Eurotrip, and was able to go to cool NYFW events thanks to my blog! 2015 was really fantastic year, filled with immense growth and lots of love. 
I only have one thing I want to do in 2016. I want to put more love out in the world. That’s all. It might sound silly but our world is going through a lot of turmoil, and I know that I’m little and cannot change the world myself but I just encourage all of you just to put a little bit more love out into the world. Let everything you do be done in love. Love each other more, let the love in our hearts speak through our passions, let the love we feel be reflected in our words and actions. Let’s make that the goal for 2016.

Stripes on the Sea

January 1, 2016

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s officially 2016, and I wish you all a happy and healthy new year. I hope you all enjoyed a glass of champagne (or 3) with your family and friends! I’ve been cruisin’ the Caribbean with my family, hence my difficulty with internet access. I’ve been traveling and falling in love with the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos, and apparently it snowed back in NYC? Someone please tell me I’m wrong, I refuse to believe snow has finally covered the tri-state.

Anyone like to break fashion rules? I sure do! Being petite, we’re told not to wear maxi dresses, stay away from big prints, stick to empire waist dresses. Um, no thanks. I decided to break lots of rules this vacation because 1) I’m on vaca and 2) well sometimes fashion rules are meant to be broken. This is where my big striped maxi-dress comes in. I bought this easy breezy dress 2 summers ago from Banana Republic. It screamed sailing and vacation so I bought it and thought it was fitting for this trip. Paired with my favorite red lip, I was ready to sail the seas.
