So this day was spent with some of my favorite people who threw me a surprise party for my 18th birthday. 18. That’s a pretty pivotal moment in a teenage girls’ life. Maybe I won’t be at the club every weekend but 18 is still another year older. I could get that tattoo I’ve always wanted (haha no I can’t thanks to my parents), or i could get married (again not happening) but still knowing these are tangible things is pretty crazy to think about. I feel like my life is just starting with the commencement of college- new people, new classes, new ways of thinking. People say when they turn 18, they have a different outlook on life. Their priorities change, their interests change, and everything in between. It’s all too exciting to think about and I can’t wait to see what 18 has in store for me!

Desire

IMG_9187

Desire is the strong feeling of wanting something important to happen to you. Looking back on it, the only desires I  had growing up was the desire to get the boy in math class to like me, but those have changed along with age. Now my desires fall under careers and personal goals that I hope to achieve in the future. Many people are scared of their desires because it means they have something to work toward that they may fail at, but in reality that should be more of a push.

One thing I probably have the most desire for is fashion. I have the desire to grow in the world of fashion and find my true calling within in. Growing up I always loved fashion, even though I didn’t really understand it. I knew I always had to have cohesive pieces so I didn’t look completely crazy, but it also gave me joy when I put a specific outfit on. Fashion is a way to display your personality on a different level from others because you call the shots. With that much power and decision you are allowed, you are bound to make something magical from it.

With the infinite amounts of bad days and heartbreaks we experience in a lifetime, desire keeps us sane. It’s a way for us to persevere and consummate our hoped for milestones, which should be enough of a reason to see desire as a positive and not an intimidating and daunting task.

Brunch and Bombers

Sundays are for brunch and bombers. At least I think they are. The perfect way to spend a Sunday is waking up, drinking some lemon water and getting ready for the best meal of the day. This time I was a bit risky stepping out in this bomber, but you do it for the blog, am I right?

Bombers have very well become my second skin these past few months because they are so versatile and comfortable! They work for so many different occasions whether I’m hanging out with friends or going out at night. The best place to get bombers is at thrift shops because there are so many old vintage pieces you could find (even though mine is from H&M, but it was $6!) You are bound to find some insane pieces there.

Thinking about when to wear them? Bombers are perfect for the transition between winter and spring (and if you know me, even summer) so I suggest you snatch one up quick!

DUMBO, BROOKLYN

Dumbo, Brooklyn the smallest, but busiest “town” in New York. One main street connecting to a bunch of tiny side streets makes this place both quaint and modern, making everybody who enters fall in love. I know I did walking through on this chilly and windy day, but don’t worry we braced the cold and got the pictures down!

 

 

How To Wear Adidas Superstars/White Sneakers

As we know, white sneakers preferably Adidas Superstars are all the rage. (and for all good reasons) They have recently been seen everywhere on the streets, styled with so many different pieces and patterns. We have seen them on some of the hottest celebrities as well as that girl who sits next to you in math class. They are some of the most comfortable and trendy shoes that are so versatile and manageable, there is no reason not to purchase them.
When they first came out I remember seeing them on everybody which kind of pushed me away, but looking at them more I realized what all the hype was about. (They’re freaking awesome!) Hopefully they stay relevant in the world of street style and become timeless pieces because they are definitely worth it.
