Summertime Red

I haven't worn much color in the past few years. Something about bright hues and over-saturation that made my eyes hurt. It might sound harsh, but I couldn't help it - If the tones felt too busy, I didn't feel much like myself when donning them.

Which made for a wardrobe comprised of quiet shades of neutral and a ton of denim. Not necessarily a bad thing.

But something funny happened this year, as I began to feel an attraction for colors that hadn't been on my radar for years. And while I've always randomly had a soft spot for red, this Aritzia top has recently reignited my flame for it.

Red is what I'll be wearing all summer long.

Sunny Side Up

I like to think of myself as a pragmatic realist. I'm not an overly bubbly person, but I'm not particularly negative either. I tend to approach things with skepticism but ultimately give every situation a fair shot to be assessed without bias.

Somehow, though, when you're wearing a joyful sweatshirt that reads Sunny Side Up on the back, it's a bit impossible to not feel a tad more enthusiastic than usual. Especially so when the sun is shining bright after a particularly drawn out and rainy spring.

What else is contributing to this pep in my step? This super practical Tumi leather backpack and my favorite Glossier Generation G shade (zip). A subtle pop of color that complements the rays on my face perfectly.
