Wearing:// Dress: Urban Outfitters, Sunnies: Céline, Shoes: Jack Rogers, Bag: Gucci, Nails: Essie "Bikini So Teeny"As many of you guys know, I went away to boarding school at age 14. That experience taught me many lessons about life, academics, and myself, but most of all, it made me realize that I am meant to travel. While most would rejoice in time at home, I find what I consider to be my lack of productivity in relaxing at home to be taxing. It's not that I would rather be in school, but I just need to find a distraction or go on a new adventure. Moreover, I spent this past week in Miami seeking a "rejuvenation" of sorts in the Florida sunshine and the Miami art scene. As I wrote in this Instagram picture caption, just walking around the Wynwood area, with the changing murals and quirky art on the ground, makes me so increidbly happy. I guess it's just the creative side of me that loves taking in all of the vibrant colors and the stories being told through the paintings. I encourage you all to find a place, activity, or even a song that lights you up and reminds you of what you have yet to discover on adventures to come in your life.
For this outing, I went more for light + airy rather than fashionable and potentially weighing-down pieces. The last time I came to the Wynwood Art District was in February, and I can tell you wholeheartedly that the Miami sun is about 1000x stronger right now. I've been loving this dress from Urban Outfitters lately (I even got it another color!) because it's so easy for hot summer days. Basic pieces like this are ideal because you can maximize on the accessories and create an endless amount of different looks.
While I am not so happy to be leaving Miami tomorrow, I am looking forward to finding other places through college and beyond that, like Wynwood, make me *so* content. I hope you all are having a wonderful evening/day! xoxo Isabelle
