New York City Fashion and Lifestyle Blog: Denim and The Beach

“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”¬†Agnes de Mille

While these photos definitely stray from my typical “street style” / fashion posts, I feel that Grant did such a great job of capturing the moment as we sat on the beach, watching what wound up being my favorite day of our road trip, come to an end.

I am not trying to go all hippie chick here, or get too deep into self-reflection (because really, that shit gets old pretty quick). That said, I feel so lucky to have a blog where I can share not only my outfits, but also my thoughts and feelings on things that I know we all go through in our own unique ways…especially during our 20’s.

The past few months have been filled with a lot of change, and even some struggle. Change is something I did not handle well for most of my life. I found comfort in the familiar, and enjoyed a stable and predictable lifestyle. But, since moving to New York, I’ve found myself learning to embrace, and even welcome change. There is something so exciting about living a life of uncertainty, and not knowing what will come next. Sometimes you’re up, and sometimes you’re down, but it is all a part of the process, you know?

I had no idea I’d be spending the month of November bouncing around on the West Coast, learning more about myself in a matter of days than I could have ever expected. And now another unexpected scenario – I’ll be spending much of December In Los Angeles and San Francisco, enjoying some sunshine, catching up with family and friends, and working on a few new projects. For the first time in a while I am feeling really inspired. No, I am not totally sure where it’s going to lead me just yet, but there definitely something to be said about the California sunshine.

    This past few months have been quite a journey for me as well .. I’ve learned so much through these times and I think we can learn from the down-moments as much as we can from the up-ones. I’m glad to see you’re sharing your thoughts like this, it’s so liberating and at the same time so nice to read! :)
