Inspiration: Blues

I’m getting back in to the swing of things after spending a little over a week with my family in California for my grandma’s funeral. It turned out to be a great experience seeing so many family members and reminiscing about old times and all of the great memories we had with her. I really wanted to visit my childhood home where I lived from pre-school to 8th grade, but time didn’t allow for it. It was the longest we lived anywhere, after that we moved around every couple of years so I don’t really have many lasting memories of those homes.I just want to see what it looks like now, and maybe if the owners are nice, check out the inside too. Deep down I am such a sap, and I love a good nostalgia session! One of these days, I am going to make it happen!

Side note – I used to think moving around so much was a bad thing, but now I feel like it not only made me able to adapt easily to any new social or work environment I was put in, but it also gave me a different perspective on people and life that I now appreciate so much. I think everyone should either travel a whole lot, or move around growing up so they can also appreciate the diversity of people and ideas across the country and around the world.

It was so incredibly hot during my trip to Sacramento, I kept thinking of summer dressing – even though it still feels like early Spring here in Chicago (seriously why?!) – but I think maybe if I put out those positive summer vibes in to the universe, it will actually come around. Just maybe?

A few things on my list at the moment: easy breezy tunics like this denim style (that comes in a few different colors), an updated version of my favorite aviator style sunglasses, a  bag in an unexpected hue like this bright blue bucket style, a dainty necklace with a sweet moon and star detail, a leather watch, and these flat sandals that lace up and give the heel some support – which is so key for comfort, for anyone who does a lot of walking around.

Thank you for visiting! I’ve recently updated my Shop page with some of my favorite things so definitely take a look!
