One great thing about living in upstate New York is that there are many hidden trails and secret spots where you can melt into the world.  I drove by this nature trail countless times and truly had no idea what was beyond the gravel parking lot and the large sign hidden in the shadows.  Then came a day where I was spontaneously invited onto its path and was completely enamored.  I loved the small wooden boardwalk which seemed lonely, but also warm and curious.  The cattails teetering in the wind pulled me down the trail and every corner I turned was new, yet familiar.

Another great thing is this dress.  I was in such a rush to find something light and summery, but also slightly sophisticated.  The long sleeves and the dainty florals are what grabbed me initially, and then the open back and the criss-cross detail completely sold me.  I love a great find when I least expect it.

Dress: Forever21 | Shoes: Converse

Love it Madly

Love it Madly is a personal fashion blog I started as a way to channel my creativity while figuring out the journey of young adulthood. I am a twenty something from a small farm in Upstate New York who recently lived New York City for a while chasing a dream. From a young age I have always loved style and clothes and even took pictures of my outfits in middle school, not realizing that blogs would eventually be a thing! What inspires me most are other people, their style and diversity, but also every aspect of nature herself. To love yourself and others in all forms is a significant part of this life, and something I continue to learn every day.
