The Katniss Dress

edits-2a-2crop-3Florals are blossoming all over the S/S 2014 runways and I love Apartment 8 Clothing‘s take on the trend with their Katniss Dress. It’s light and silky, which makes it perfect for staying cool in the summer heat. I’m particularly in love with the neckline! It’s interesting enough on its own that I can skip the necklace.  I paired it with dangling sparkly earrings (also from Apartment 8) since they were my only accessories.

Here are some of the floral looks I loved from the runway:

In a couple of days, my sister is graduating from MIT (#proudsister) then flying off to Germany before finally settling in Seattle for grad school. I am going to miss her so much so I’ve been spending as much time as I can with her before she leaves.

I’ve also started a new project called The Night Parade. It’s titled after one of my favorite collections of poetry from Edward Hirsch. It’s where I’ve been posting most of my writing for the last month. It’s 365 days of fiction and the occasional poem. I am a writer before anything else and would love it if you guys could follow me there!

Since summer’s finally reached Boston, expect more outfit posts! I’ll be heading to Cape Cod again in a couple of weeks (yay!) so more beach outfits are on the way too! I’ve missed you guys and really appreciate your steady support! I’m looking forward to having an adventure-filled summer with you all!

Spring Saturday

photo 1photo 3photo 2photo 4photo 1Today it finally felt like Spring! It was warm enough to ditch a coat, but breezy enough that walking was a pleasure, and walk we did! A little over six miles to be exact. I’m loving this weather and can’t wait for the tulips to bloom! Hope you’re all having a sunny weekend! Good riddance, winter!

Reunited And It Feels So Good!

rachlunch-3Four years, hundreds of Skype calls, and one 24-hour plane ride later, Daddy and I are together again! It’s been such a hectic last few months and I’m thrilled to be able to take a minor break to spend time with my Daddy-o and to reacquaint him with Boston. reunited
