Personal Style | An ode to beginnings

There's something so joyful about beginnings, it's indescribable. The start of my childhood vacations are as clear as day to me. All I could visualize were mornings spent sleeping in, a backyard full of possibilities and more popsicles than my hands could hold. While those days are now a wonderful memory; I'm still enamored over so many blissful beginnings.

This time however, they are different kinds of beginnings. Like the onset of sale season, where there are racks of clothes as far as the eye can see and the anticipation of trying it all is heightened. Or that exact point on a Friday night where the weekend is beckoning with thoughts of bottomless brunches, spa days and dance parties. The beginning of summer felt just like that. With the sun shining down on me, all I could envision was cocktails served in mason jars, a wavy bob for days and my shoulders catching some sun. While the time has now come to give the summer a teary goodbye, I'm reminiscing about the beginning. I'm going back to the time when sunglasses were an expected accessory and no amount of florals were an overkill.

My summer loving enthusiasm needs no introduction so this look was a sort of farewell to my favorite season. While cold shoulders are all the rage, I paired the trend with an abundance of florals, miniature accessories and delicate shades. So as the summer bids adieu and it's time to safely keep away my sneakers, maybe it's time for a new beginning like a brand new season with foliage glistening under the raindrops and sudden showers. I may not get to wear my whites as much as I'd like to or I may have to add an umbrella to my staples but you never know what wonderful beginnings have in store.
