Rooftop Dancer

May 5, 2014

Paige denim overalls, Free People top, Frye boots, Filily by Luiny choker necklace

Hello start to a fresh new week 🙂 The city is literally alive with the sound of music. Or at least that’s how it feels to me. I have a week full of meetings and picture taking sessions with some really awesome people. Big changes are coming and life is probably going to a be a lot more unexpected for me. It’s a little scary to think about sometimes, but deep down inside I couldn’t be happier. I’m ready to explore and test myself, meet as many inspiring people that I can, and finally take on every endeavor with full on passion and enjoyment. I feel like in every job I’ve had since college, I’ve never fully been able to reach my creative potential. I was always just one or two steps back from what I really wanted to pursue. Which is okay, we all have our own timeline when it comes to what we want to achieve out of life, be it personal or something revolving around work. The journey, no matter how short or long, is always the most important part. Make it or break it. Stumble and get back up. Never say never.

Friday and Saturday were fully dedicated to friends and celebrations in Brooklyn over beers and dancing until 3am. Sunday was me working away on my computer prepping posts, catching up on abandoned emails/projects and working on organizing the crazy world that takes up space on my hard drive so I can finally have the space and a clear mind to work on some fresh new things for ya’ll. I’m getting there! Get excited people 🙂

In other news, I really LOVE LOVE LOVE my Paige denim overall shorts, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY need some sort of haircut of sorts. And now, off to see Iggy Azalea tonight with Revolve!


When You Wake Up

May 4, 2014

LULU*S crop top, BCBGeneration crochet pants and gladiator sandals, Vanessa Mooney necklace, Rock N Rose flower crown

Let’s time travel back to Coachella. Sweet, sweet memories of sunshine that digs deep into your skin. Crop tops ONLY. I was imagining myself on a Balinese vacation in this outfit. Massages on the beach, sea salt in my hair, my arms tanner than ever, smiles visiting me at every corner. Flowers around my head not just because it’s trendy, but because someone made a crown just for me. A goddess of the sun and a mermaid of the sea. Imagination gets you far in the summertime. The sunshine allows for our minds to wander a bit more than normal. It even dances its way through the crochet to remind us that while summer is not officially here just yet, it’ll linger around for quite a while once it does finally arrive. So let’s dance like the sun dances. A state of mind to carry with us during summers in the city or wherever we might just happen to be. 


The Mid Length

May 1, 2014

MISSGUIDED midi dress and jacket, Modern Vice boots, Stela 9 bag from Threadsence, Filily by Luiny choker necklace, Shashi long necklaces
Slowly but surely I’m unveiling a little but more leg each week, when the weather calls for it, of course (and depending on whether I’ve shaved my legs or not). Lately, warmer days have meant for gloomier skies, but I’ll take that over a leftover windchill. A day full of meetings calls for something put-together, but still comfortable and casual since I’ll be running around the city a lot. This Missguided midi dress hits that perfect sweet spot that everyone wants out of their everyday spring dress. I’m actually about to run out the door in just a bit, so keeping this post on the shorter side of things. But do look forward to more special projects to come to Color Me Nana (and hopefully a blog revamp before summer!). Spring is definitely going to be the creative awakening for me and I’m fully ready for it. 

Home Is Wherever I’m With You

April 29, 2014

MinkPink kimono from Bloomingdales, LOVE NAIL TREE tee, Spell and the Gypsy pants (shop similar HERE)

Lounging calls for an ultimate devotion to kimonos and earthily printed pants. I’ve been in a mood to sit back, wake up earlier on the weekends to catch up on reading . . .  maybe even write a poem or two . . . watercolor a painting to put up on my wall. I can’t remember the last time I’ve done these things. One of the main struggles of living in NYC is the one-sidedness of urban life. Work work work. Every day is task driven. Every day a job needs to get done, but its never fully finished, so the next day you drill your way through it again. Sleep is usually no more than 5 hours a night for me. The city is beautiful but it moves so fast, sometimes it’s hard to see it for what it is from the outside again. I want this to be the summer of appreciating what NYC has given me, and for me to give it something back, while at the same time letting my mind wander a bit more and not have to feel rushed into the next thing as much. Maybe now I can have time to make my own coffee in the morning and really get to taste it. Maybe start a conversation with someone on the subway and not just leave it at that.
