Fashion | The merry flowers of June

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.

It’s July, but hey, this beautiful song is in Lord of the Rings and I’m wearing a top with the LotR map printed on it! Gotta love that dork life. I bought this very inexpensive top from a Store Envy shop called Hearts & Minds, and I absolutely love it. I knew I had to style an elfish outfit around it and so I paired it with this chiffon skirt I bought at Piperlime over three years ago. I love how much this dreamy outfit flows.

Fashion // Embrace the Mess

Maxi skirts make me feel like a princess. This gorgeous, cranberry chiffon one is a couple years old. I wore it when I visited Paris a couple years ago and now it always reminds me of that magical trip. I wore this outfit on May Day, just strolling around town with my sister, shopping and enjoying the sun. It’s been an amazing spring so far!

My sister and I have been celebrating May Day every year for the past few years because of some obsession with paganism. Sometimes we go for a picnic or visit a museum, or do something simple like visit the New York Botanical Gardens (across the street from my alma mater, Fordham University). It’s really an opportunity to celebrate spring and pretend we’re cooler than we are. (Is paganism cool?) Anyway—

What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. – Nora Ephron
