Hometown Love







As most of you know, I'm on a little 2-week siesta in my small little hometown before I depart for Paris!  It's been nice thus far, relaxing a little and enjoying some time with my family, friends, and my doggies (haha). 

One of the things I love about being home is the nature of people around me, and of course all of the colorful old buildings. There are a lot of historic little spots, and cute little nooks and crannies to explore.. It inspires me to dress a little more colorfully as opposed to the mostly black, white, and neutral fashion of New York (not that I am opposed to that either).  I'm obsessed with this vibrant chiffon kimono as it just drapes beautifully over even a simple little white dress. I paired them with my favorite bag and shoes of the moment and I feel completed!

My brothers recently gifted me those beautiful tiger's eye and quartz ring. I love having special, simple, accessories that go with all my outfits to remind me of what's truly important in life! Remember to always cherish the time you have with your family :)

Kimono: Trigger State (Find it here!)
Dress: The Editor's Market ( Find it here!)
Sandals: Shoe Cult by Nasty Gal ( Here!)
