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! :)
