Vancouver | I Can Hear The Waterfall From Here

Kiara and I found this epic point to watch the waterfall from on our way up to Whistler in Vancouver. Despite the cold, we rid ourselves from our coats and did some twirling in the sun's rays coming in through the trees, which was our only provider of warmth (at least for a few minutes). Mystified by the rainbow created above the waterfall, this day couldn't have been more perfect and inspiring. I could have stood there and listened to that waterfall all day long. Nature really is one of my greatest joys. We need to learn to take more time out of days to get out and enjoy it for the simplicity of what it is. So much of my imagination as a child revolved around our adventures in nature growing up. The memories are worth a lifetime.

You know, just the normal everyday stroll through the neighborhood's graveyard. During the daytime I find graveyards quite beautiful and peaceful.  A place of rest and quiet resonance. I've never though of visiting graveyards as something disrespectful, but actually quite liberating. It's quite a powerful place if you really think about it, even if you don't have a loved one there to actually visit. Sometimes it can be the best place to go and reflect on one's own life; putting things into perspective and realizing that it does not make sense to ever take things for granted. The people in your life, the tangible things you have in front of you, the places you have been. The list goes on and on and it all should be savored in the present moment as fully as possible. A cemetery should never have be a scary place, as long as it reminds you to keep on truly living. And if it can serve as inspiration between an outfit post on this blog, then let it be that, too.

This is probably one of my favorite outfits of fall!! How am I just posting it right now? This top is the epitome of bad-assery . . . tough girl meets sexy girl meets futuristic mama. And maybe even a little Edward Scissor Hands thrown in? The armpit cutout is just fab yeah? Haven't been more excited to show off my armpits until I got this top in my hands! We photographed these pictures in a hot minute in Williamsburg after a long day of meetings in the neighborhood. It's always wonderful to stay local on a work day and support my favorite Brooklyn designers and shops. Plus, it leaves me with the chance to catch the epic sunset from this side on the east. The view we get from Manhattan from over here beats everywhere else.

The coldest days in New York City still aren't enough for me to not make the trek outside on the weekends and do some exploring. I think that I will forever be a tourist in this city, and especially so on the weekends. The streets are never empty, no matter how cold it is. There are still things to be seen and things to get done. It's wonderful seeing how strong the beat of NYC's heart is, no matter what the circumstances. UGG boots, North Face coats and all. It keeps me going.
