In the event my obsession for florals wasn't clear enough, here's another post that might sway you. Hitachi Seaside Park is a 470 acre park in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan that showcases 170 varieties of tulips, daffodils and approximately 4.5 million baby blue eyes (AKA Nemophila). Nemophila are annuals that bloom in spring. When this event happens, hundreds of visitors flock to this park to see the sea of blue. Ah-mazing.

Japan sure has some magical spots to see. Do you remember this one?

Life has a funny way of balancing out. Sometimes, things go smoothly but, then you hit a rough patch of events. Sometimes, these events happen all at once or they occur back to back or they even happen throughout all the good things in life. We all ask ourselves why certain things happen but, I'm a firm believer in things happening for a reason. We may not always recognize the reason but this mantra helps me focus on the positive.  

Being the introvert that I am, I like to retreat and take time for myself to re-energize when life tips too much one way. This kind of "escape" helps me regain focus and keeps me thinking of all the positive in life. I feel my personal perspective shows on the outside and in this case, it reflects through my outfit. My look is definitely plain and easy-going but, this look is comfortable, which is what I want I need/want right now.

Those Birks Though

Each time I've posted an outfit with Birks it seems to stir up fashion controversy from folks who either love or hate them. Admittedly, the sandals don't scream cute. Regardless, they are easy to wear and give off a vibe that screams street style chic. Oh, I know I'll never look like that but, hey, a girl likes what she sees.

Wednesday Whim - Aerial Summertime

The word "vacation" is synonymous with the summer season. Part of the joy comes from taking a break people get from work or school and spending time with people you love. As editor, Hadassa Haack from mb! Magazine describes it, there are two things that make you see a city in a completely new light: showing first time visitors around and going up in the air. 

Melbourne-based photographer 
Tom Blachford has a taste for a minimal and clean aesthetic, which he showcases in his aerial photography of his hometown. From this perspective, summer activities that are energetic and noisy seem peaceful and artistic. As a viewer, I can appreciate the value of the outdoor life summer-goers have. Taking his skills to the air he says
I saw another side to everything. Some buildings I would never think of shooting from the ground may have had incredible patterned roofs or arrays of panels that created amazing patterns. Some amazing buildings I love to shoot from the ground were a mess of cables and units from above.

Silver Accents

I may be biased with gold but, I actually enjoy the color silver. The accents in this outfit are minimal but they pick up enough light to grab your attention in a subtle way.
