This past weekend I escaped to Southampton to visit one of my closest gals. There’s nothing like a few days of wine tasting, dancing to live music, feeling the sand beneath your feet and catching up with an old friend to refresh the brain. I said my goodbye to Summer and I’m ready to embrace Fall (my favorite season) with cozy, sweater-clad arms. It’s time to start appreciating what I have and working harder for what I want – whether it’s making time for an art project I thought of years ago or getting rid of my snooze button habit. Here’s some inspiration, as always.
Get organized – love the feel of Claudia Benvenuto’s Bungalow Office
Start playing the piano again
Find the perfect Fall booties! Love these by Emersen Fry.
Meet friends for coffee (Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is officially back!)
Make time to sketch and paint
Take advantage of the city
Try new recipes!
Make new outfits out of clothes I already own like this…
Wish and pray – but don’t expect.
Isn’t it amazing how a thought-out composition and a different perspective can completely change your opinion of something? In every day life I don’t daydream of puddles and shadows, but they sure do look good when photographed the right way. They DO happen to be two of my favorite elements to capture when I’m romping around with my camera. Maybe that’s why I’m so fond of this awesome collection I discovered on Pinterest (BONUS: it contains some super cool old shots of New York!).
If only we were as talented at placing that strategic composition and positive perspective on every aspect of our lives.
