Sunday Styles: Weekend Inspiration

Hello and happy SUNDAY, everyone!

For the regular readers of this site, today’s post might throw you off a bit — because I normally don’t post on Sundays!

So first, thanks for just being here — I know that Sunday is a “funday” AKA detox-from-electronics day, so I appreciate you taking a few minutes to see what’s new on the site. But second, the reason I’m posting is because beginning with today, I’ll be sharing my week’s activities & vintage experiences in pictures every Sunday to inspire YOU as the week closes and opens into a fresh start on Monday.

The vintage lover in me held off for as long as she could, but a few weeks ago I bought into the “must have” electronic of today: the iPhone.

I’m so glad I did, though, because it’s inspired ME to inspire YOU by capturing my life in New York City and its stimulation that keeps me on my fashion-forward toes to share substance & style through the lens of my life on this site.

I love life. Life is beautiful (see picture above, captured on the Williamsburg Bridge yesterday!). Sometimes I struggle falling asleep at night because I just find life and its opportunities too exciting!

So, to calm my restlessness AND release some of it here, this weekly Sunday post will capture some of that excitement to inspire YOUR excitement, too. We all have so much to share with one another from wherever it is we live and the lens of our special, unique-to-us lives.

I look forward to hearing from you about my caught-on-iPhone pictures — from the vintage I spy, graffiti I geek out at and the fun events I’m so blessed to have the opportunity to attend.
