HAPPY BELATED.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably know my birthday was this past week, July 26. The big TWO-SEVEN. I don't know why, but I have a good feeling about this year.

Twenty-six was a tough one for me. It was a year of change—a lot of change. It was a year of growth; figuring out what I want, who I am, where I want to be, and my definition of success. It was also a clean-out year: getting rid of dead weight, negativity, bad vibes, and stuff that no longer contributed to my life (or my closet) in a positive way.

But this year?

Girl. When I tell you, I'm ready. I'm so ready. 

One of my good friends Kai—who also happens to be a life guru in her own right (she should really charge for her advice) and is so chic and just #goals AF)—always tells me, "Embrace it—the older you get, the more knowledgeable and fierce you are." And, you know what? I believe her. 

While the old me would be having a meltdown over turning a year older, the new me? She's confident. She's fierce. And, she knows what she wants. 

The best is yet to come.

ABOUT THE LOOK

It's so hot and humid in NYC, that I've given up on the idea of being cute. Sweating through my clothes, face makeup melting off, sweating out my blowout—it's inevitable.

By the way, is anyone else completely over summer fashion? Every year right around this time I get so excited for fall fashion and completely over summer. 

But I digress...

I've been wearing some variation of this look all Summer 16: midi or maxi skirt, an airy top, and sandals, or these espadrilles—which to me, are a more updated and edgy version of traditional ones you see everywhere. Staying cool is the key.
