Who needs a top when you can just wear your silk scarf instead? This is something I would wear on repeat over the summer when I got bored of my closet and wanted to switch it up a little. The versatility of your mom’s or grandma’s everyday silk scarf is one of the best things to have in your wardrobe and I rarely want to leave without one.
It’s summertime, which means barbecues between friends and family, days spent by the pool, and admiring the flora around you. There’s something so uniquely pleasant from watching and listening to the light breeze rustling the leaves on trees. In the countryside, it’s so easy to spend hours admiring the unpretentious world around you and feeling the utmost sensation of being calm. Watching the stars at night, observing bees collect pollen from a distance, sitting on freshly hydrated grass. Nature is majestic, watch and take it all in.
Roofs in New York City are a special thing… The city is immense and no matter where you go, you’re surrounded by tall buildings. When you’re at the top, you feel like the smallest person yet you feel like the whole world belongs to you. After walking up the stairs of an East Village building (and feeling quite out of breath), you reach the place where you can spend some time with yourself and take in the city as a whole. You watch the sun go down that reflects from the glass windows across the street. On those days where you feel a little down, the roof seems just slightly magical.
Spice up your outfit with a statement mini skirt for the spring/summer. If it isn’t warm enough, do it anyway by topping it off with a cozy sweater and a semi-long coat. Wrap it up, buckle it, add fringe to it, whatever you want. But go on, show off those legs.
“Enjoying life’s simple pleasures”. It’s all you have to do when it’s cold outside or you don’t necessarily feel like leaving the house. Spending time with friends by the fireside, reading a book, laying and rolling in bed for a while, taking a bath. Nothing beats those cozy moments when you don’t only feel warm on the outside, but also on the inside. Cherish and treasure them, let it ignite and cuddle your soul.
