Roots

The ultimate cliche–gone back to my roots. Watching movies where the character seems to have lost it all, they return to where it all began.  In that process the realization sets in that what was once lost has been there the whole time. Living in that cliche I’ve learned the core of your being stays the same, no one can take away experiences, your love for people and the things that created you.

My life is in constant motion, the sun rises and the sun sets and not a single person can stop that.  Anxiety provoking? Yes. However, it can be therapuetic in way knowing the current situation won’t stay as it is as long as I keep waking and resting with the rest of the world.   Opportunities keep yeilding themselves to me, and every one I take I learn something new.  I am grateful for what is yet to come and for all that I’ve had.

I’m en route to New York City as we speak to add another experience under my belt, Coterie. A global event really, the mission: to present and sell spring 2019 of various designers to retailers around the world.

Wearing Vintage Levis jacket | Truly Madly Deeply top | BCBG skirt | Steve Madden mules 

The weather has been unseasonably warm here in upstate New York. Usually around this time of year I’m wearing the a coat, so to be bare-legged and feel comfortably warm is beyond ordinary.  Keeping a light denim jacket by my side is perfect for when the sun goes down and the temperatures begin to drop again. I snagged this Levi’s jacket in New York City at a flea market. I just could not pass it up; I tend to find the best things when I’m not really looking.

For now, I’m happy to soak up the sun and swim in the colors of fall on this sunny Sunday afternoon.

Wearing B.yu faux fur coat | Free People sweater and denim | H&M booties

While living in New York City, I yearned for big open fields and fresh air.  I guess growing up with that left me somewhat spoiled knowing I could walk outside and be surrounded by it. Fall is absolutely stunning in upstate New York, the trees display vibrant colors, the local farms set up stands with all of their summer’s harvest and fresh hot apple cider, and the weather is perfectly cool and sunny.

I blogged this faux fur jacket this past spring in the post “Faux Fur in Central Park.” I reconnected with it then after being in my closet for almost three years.  Styled with wide flared jeans and this awesome multicolor knit sweater to gives it this really cool 1970s vibe.
