Paradise Daydream

Everyday I am living in a ‘Paradise Daydream’ that I can not escape from. Do you ever just get that feeling that you just want to get up, get on a plane, and fly to the beach and just stay there for a month? That’s all I have craved lately, adventure, and something new.  I want to relax on the beach and just stare out into the ocean and not only stare out into the ocean, but hear the waves crash up upon shore. I have always been in love with the sound of the waves. Sometimes when writing blog post I’ll go to google and type in ‘waves crashing’ and the inspiration really starts flowing. I also used to listen to it while doing homework.  I think I am actually a beach bum that hasn’t gotten her chance yet. Hopefully in time.

This outfit is just perfect for the beach too. Nice off the shoulder dress designed with such a breezy fabric, stripes that look good whether you’re at the beach or at home hanging out, and fringed sandals with a gold plate around the heel. For accessories I am rocking my white round sunnies and my jewelry set from Micha Store. This mint jewelry set can really tie an outfit together.

I also love rocking my purse from Tommy Hilfiger that I got back when I was interning for him in New York City.  The quality is fabulous, and that gold platted TH really brings in some cute detail. It’s crazy to think that at this time 2 years ago I was living in New York City, and let me tell you, living in New York City was such a beautiful experience. Living there showed me what I really wanted, and that was that I didn’t want to make New York City my permanent home. New York City is beautiful, adventurous, and so many other words, but I guess it’s wasn’t really for me. New York is that city where you just blend in with everyone around you. You don’t ever get the chance to stand out. It swallows you whole and really never spits you out. You get used to the long hours, you get used to city time, and you get used to doing the same thing day in and day out.

I want my days to be controlled by me. I love getting into my car and taking myself to work. I love relying on myself. Even though I’m living in a paradise daydream, I know I am closer than I have ever been before to making it my reality.

My path is leading me to it.

    I know that feeling of wanting to just get up and go. NYC is definitely a place worth visiting, I’m actually going back in September, but as far as living there… whewwww… I don’t think I could do it. That’s awesome that you interned for Tommy Hilfiger, I hope it was great! Love your outfit as always 🙂
