Come Fly With Me






Living out of a suitcase has actually been pretty fun. My choices are limited, so I've been utilizing every piece I have on hand. I recently acquired a few springy scarves that I love, but wouldn't normally reach for...and for a couple of weeks they were just staring at me from my suitcase. Yesterday, I put on this outfit with a regular navy belt, but then changed my mind and grabbed this scarf instead. I tied it into a bow sash and ended up liking the outfit so much more.

In other news, Miku and I will be flying home tomorrow morning! My extended visit in Florida has come to an end. It's always bittersweet going back to New York. On one hand, I'm relieved to return home to my own apartment and get back into my routine. On the other hand...I always want to bring my family and friends with me.

Outfit Details:
Teal cardigan thing - thrifted and reconstructed
navy lace camisole - thrifted
denim skirt - thrifted and shortened
heels - Calvin Klein, Beacon's Closet
RACHEL Rachel Roy scarf (worn as a sash) - courtesy of the Rachel Roy team


Love love,

  12. I would never be able to live out of a suitcase - I always pack way too much! I love the scarf as a belt, completely finishes the look. And I love how you matched your eye makeup with the cardigan.

  27. This is a brilliantly innovative way to wear a scarf. I've recently been toying with ideas of what to do with the massive pile of scrap fabric in my studio/office and this gives me great ideas. Thanks!

  28. I know what you mean about wanting to bring the friends and family back home with you! Same for me! In other news, I love how you're rocking that giant scarf-turned-sash as an alternative to a belt as a way to bundle that cardigan together.
