Two-thousand-seventeen moved slowly and incredibly quickly at the same time. Fueled by disheartening events, it was a year filled with prolonged self-catechizing questions about substance and intention, sprinkled with quick spurts of relief by way of travel. To be completely honest, in hindsight I mostly just remember the good parts-- that time my mom and I finally got to travel together in Japan; that time a few girlfriends and I'd spontaneously whisked away to Tulum; that time I'd unplugged completely in the woods, on a beach in the South, and most recently again in the South. The most important thing, I've realized, is not what or how things troubled me, but the ways in which I'd pushed myself to overcome and proceed. Leaving this year in the books as the last in which I will be latent. Happy new year y'all x

Taking this time to reflect on the year and feeling grateful that the year was actually marked by the number of attempts made to improve oneself and not the unfortunate circumstances that came before those instances. Cherishing the b-roll moments while striving to be better and ultimately just hoping for the best. Cheers and happy holidays to you all x

Most of my sartorial inspiration comes from images of inanimate objects and interior design, rather than mainstream magazines or fellow fashion bloggers. Don't get me wrong, I like seeing things on people, but there's something delicious about continuity in style, food, and home goods. Currently coveting smokey clear objects, super slick black, gold foil, and plush, velvety accessories. More interesting pieces inspired by inanimate objects continued:
