The Summer Shoulder Shimmy

Sorry cleavage, this is just not your summer 

The best off the shoulder tops for summer

Who knew that shoulders could be such a point of interest? All these years I'd been doing myself a disservice by wearing sleeves (of all lengths) and sweaters (of all kinds), not thinking for a second that shoulders could be the next big thing.

Thoughts On Watermelon Juice

I been drankin', I been drankin'

How to wear gingham

This is perhaps the closest I've felt to Beyoncé in a long time. First off, who knew watermelon juice was a thing that could happen? And secondly (or is it second off?) who knew it was so refreshing? Certainly not I, but this weekend when I found a little Brooklyn coffee shop with a fresh squeezed pitcher, I discovered the endless wonder of this summer fruit. Look, if watermelon is good enough for Bey, it's good enough for me.

Eternal Disappointment of the Sunless Life

Well, at least it was warm for two days last week

I spend a lot of time compiling lists. To-do lists for work, grocery lists for home, and things-I-will-buy-when-I-become-a-rich-housewife lists because a girl can dream, right? Today's list is brought to you by the sudden change of seasons in New York; the thing that allowed me to wear shorts and a tank one day and forced me to wear this jumpsuit and a jacket then next.

Happiness Is A Warm Island

Thoughts while sitting under a banana tree

At this very moment I am sitting on a lounge chair around the pool and under rows of coconut and banana trees of my Air BnB'd home for the week in Curaçao. Life is good. Even if I weren't on this amazing tropical vacation, I'd probably be singing the same tune. Life is good.  Life is good.

Just Keep Going

And you too can wear fancy clothes in SoHo & have your own NY apartment

Currently there are sirens wailing outside my window. Not nearly as alarming as it may seem considering it's Sunday night in New York. To be honest, sirens any night of the week are the norm here. The only thing new is I'm hearing them from my new apartment in New York—my new apartment. Something about those sharp, blaring ambulance sirens sound so much sweeter hearing them from a place all my own.

Love x Style x Life

A pretty coffee table book worth reading

I own two categories of books: books of I've purchased with every intention of reading and books I've purchased because they look pretty. Whether it's the cover art, the font, or the color, I'm easily sold when it comes to coffee table books. Love x Style x Life was purchased for this very reason, so imagine my surprise when I cracked open this book and found that the anecdotes were as wonderful as the aesthetic.
