come away with me

i am aching for a new journey.  i am a restless soul and whenever i am in one place too long my mind and soul begin to wander, searching for the next place to call home, at least for a little while.  a true gypsy at the core, a wild spirit that needs to run free.  a trip is definitely in order.  where will my feet take me next?

a melancholy romance

i am drawn to the melancholy and romance of these photographs.  sometimes you don't need words to describe what you see, sometimes what you feel when you see it is enough.

let it all go

one of the hardest lessons we learn in life is how to let go.  moving on from painful memories, past loves, a difficult past, it isn't easy.  sometimes clinging to the memory is easier than accepting a world where that life no longer exists.  but if there is one thing i have learned it is that there is beauty in letting go of the pain and embracing the exciting and sometimes frightening new world that lies ahead.  it is truly liberating.  today, try to let go of the things that have been burdening you, that have been weighing you down.  embrace the reality of what you are going through, no matter how difficult, and take comfort in the fact that a beautiful new world lies before you.

live for you

with all the things we have going on in life it can sometimes seem to be too overwhelming to deal with. it is so important to take a step back, gain a new perspective, and do what is truly best for you.  we all need to live in a way that is true to our genuine selves.  so every day, take what you need.

flakes dancing in the wind

  snow has officially over taken the east coast, coating the shore in a whimsical layer of white.  i have to admit, i have been reluctant to embrace this time of year, especially after enduring the wrath of sandy.  but the first snowfall of the season has reminded me why i have always adored the chillier months.  days spent cuddling up on the couch with my pup, cozied up in my beloved winter sweaters and cute little wool socks, sipping on my signature hot chocolate, watching the snow fall and dance outside my window.  pulling out long forgotten winter coats from the back of the closet and layering on the scarves and mittens and beanies, all necessities for bitter east coast winter, and some of my favorite cold weather pieces.  oh how i love these snowy winter days.

oh sandy

and so it has begun.  sandy has descended on the east coast, essentially shutting down the entire coast line. but im sure you know this already since the news is treating this like the apocalypse. while i am dreading the prospect of no power for upwards of 7 days, i am loving the downtime that sandy has afforded me.  i plan on spending plenty of time in my bed with my puppy, a good book, and a cup of tea.  nothing to do and all day to do it. oh the possibilities are endless...

look at this stuff, isnt it neat?

i felt that a little mermaid reference was ever so appropriate.  i've posted about my anthro outings before, and i must say every time i drop in i am met with an overwhelming amount of inspiration.  thus, i give you, anthropologie part due.  

my beautiful best friend hailee! 

would it be completely inappropriate to live in anthro?  a girl can dream.

long lost summer days

i finally got to downloading the many pictures from my camera and happened upon these snapshots from a beautiful summer day.  i was leaving work and was so captured by the beauty of the day, i had to commemorate it with a few pictures.  makes me long for those hazy, lazy summer days once again.  ah, memories.

taking it easy

so its no secret that i am more than a little infatuated with the perfectly disheveled, model off duty look.  to me there is nothing sexier than a slouchy t shirt paired with destroyed boyfriend jeans and a pair of amazing heels.  and maybe an oversized sweater.  or blazer as the case may be.  heels may not be included in everyone definition of "casual dressing" but i've always been one to stray from convention. viva la casual.

& in the blink of an eye...

I am so infatuated with the idea of capturing a moment in time.  Whether in film, word, painting, anything really.  Time is so fleeting and precious.  To capture it is to see a memory, to relive a moment of time.  It is so whimsical and magical to me, truly.  So go out and capture a moment today.  Revel in it.  And keep it forever.

gypsies roam

kind of goes along with my last post, but i just love the idea of wandering around with no particular place to go and happening upon a beautiful, secret place all your own.

During this beautiful season of change I am always drawn to the woods.  I feel so at ease amongst the trees.  The overwhelming silence of the forest overwhelms you, punctured only by the occasional song of a bird hidden among the limbs or the rustling of a creature unseen.  Soft, hazy light filters in through the leaves, and everything around you feels so alive yet so still.  Take a moment and loose yourself among the trees.

street style

Im feeling rather inspired by this lovely fall weather.  I love the model off duty vibe that these looks give off- carelessly thrown together yet undoubtedly stylish and chic.  The ultimate, "Oh, this old thing?  I just threw it on," look.  What are your favorite fall looks?

her gypsy love den

I swoon for romantic bedrooms.  White everything, exposed brick, plush bedding, antique furniture, soft, hazy lighting.  I need to be able to feel completely at peace in my bedroom, and this romantic, bohemian atmosphere captured by these bedrooms makes me feel so at luxurious and at ease.  I am lusting for that last bedroom, the ceiling really takes it over the top for me.  It reminds me of the forts I used to make as a child.  One day....

with stars in her eyes and flowers in her hair.

commit to yourself

Work, class, homework, laundry, papers; it seems like we always have something going on.  But I find that when we go through our To Do Lists,  "me time" rarely makes the list.  How is it that we have become so busy that we cant schedule time for ourselves?  We should all make a commitment to ourselves to indulge in a good book, wander around in the woods, cook an amazing meal for yourself: to set aside some time and devote it to yourself.
