If you follow me on Instagram, I posted this weekend, that when I walked in to my house, this bag and flowers were sitting on the table waiting for me as a surprise from my husband. I had mentioned I wanted a cross body leather bag, as it would be practical and classic, and I could use it for NYFW. Low and behold, he found this amazing bag, and I couldn't love it more. It is so useful, the perfect size, and the color is a year-round classic.

When I got this romper, I loved it but was hesitant all the same. I didn't know if it could be casual, or only to be worn on special occasions. However, once I tried it on, I loved it. It is a bit revealing, but the looseness and length of the shorts compensates. At night, I threw a little jacket over it and it worked as well as it did for brunch that morning. This is one of my favorite colors to wear, and I am a sucker for a low back to outline shape.
Confession, I have worn this outfit THREE times in two weeks. It's just so easy to wear while running errands, going on a walk..and it is just the right amount of polished for a Summer day. While I am ready for Fall, the last days of Summer are so sweet to enjoy on the beach, with popsicles and bike rides. Though in Miami, Summer never truly ends, I like to thoroughly enjoy the season traditions.
When I am in a solemn mood, nothing brings me together like flowers. I read the book, " The Language of Flowers" a few months back, and it helped me understand the connection we have with flowers. I have always felt the most peace when I am surrounded by nature. Maybe because to me, God and nature are one, and because my parents' house, where I grew up, is surrounded by the woods and acres of land. Nature reminds me I am so little in a world so big. And I have so much to be thankful for. In college I read "Nature" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and I took this quote with me:
"The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship"
shirt (sold out, but love this one) / pants (want these) / sperry's / gigi new york clutch / ray bans / Ara Nicole Bracelet The neon bracelet that I am wearing is from the very chic boutique, Ara Nicole, and I just have to speak of the fact that it is a special bracelet, because it is made of 14k gold plated materials, and the delicate neon thread is so intricate and fun. It's a great collection piece to add some color to an arm party!
