Tides of Nature

It's been nice to go home and be overwhelmed by the greens and pinks of nature. I've been able to capture some of the gorgeous flora and fauna that we grow around our property:

Story time: When it comes to style, I was against floral patterns or colors for a long time. But the truth is, they add a sweetness to an edgy or otherwise dark look, and I love that:

Comme Des Garçons RTW F/W 2012

Raf Simons

Dolce and Gabanna S/S 2012

It turns out that for both men and women, hints (or full blasts) of florals can be really arresting. They have the ability to soften or sharpen any style, when paired with the right components. Alas, this is all I have for now.

All of the Lights

Currently trending in my world right now are neons and pastels. The summer heat is intensifying my usual color palate, I guess. Instead of dressing in stars and stripes on the fourth, I tackled bright yellows and pinks and greens. Recent additions to my wardrobe and items I fancy:

My Fourth of July celebration ended in a boat trip up long island sound to see fireworks that seemed to be set off no more than 200-300 yards away from us. Then we got caught in the most terrifying (but beautiful) lightening storm I have ever seen. It's pretty wild seeing lightening strike the ground and water so close to you. Though at the time I was panicking, to say the least. Happy to be back on shore. Namaste!
