where palm trees sway

Hello I'm Morgan. I'm not dead. After I got back from Mexico I was very sick for two weeks. I had planned to immediately share photos from my trip. That obviously didn't happen, so here are some now! Better late than never right?

Vintage 1980's sundress, thrifted hat, years old Marshall's sandals. 

Let's just say Caribbean life agrees with me. The sunshine, the breeze, and being able to wear sundresses whenever I want! I got this dress back in December and was sad that I would have to wait months to wear it. Then the solution hit - take it with me! I loved wearing it so much that I wore it twice during the trip.
Life is so much easier when I can wake up to sunshine, throw on a dress, and be out the door. Such simplicity.

My time in Mexico really taught me that I honestly loathe any temperatures below 40 degrees. I'm just not suited for life here (is anyone suited for this winter?).

How is your winter going?

january stagnation

We find ourselves in January. The month where everything slows down, freezes over, and stagnates. Especially my style. When it's 15 degrees out, the motivation to put together an outfit just dissipates. So I apologize for the lack of posts. My outfits have just been black jeans and a sweater. Every single day. Sometime I'll throw a beanie on just to spice things up. Nothing worth posting. Maybe it is, but it's just too hard to take the photos.

I'm leaving for Cancun on Sunday, so hopefully I'll take some photos to share while I'm there.  This time I'm trying to take some cute vintage sundresses, so hopefully that will bring future posts!

In the meantime, here's a video of some new clothes I just bought at Forever 21:

five years of blogging

Today marks the five year anniversary of my blog. I honestly can't believe it's been that long. I wanted to reflect back on how much my style has changed. Thank you to anyone who has ever taken the time to stop by my blog, it's been a pretty great documentation of this crazy thing called life.
Here are some of my favorites from over the years (WARNING: This post is picture heavy):

I'm so happy that I started blogging. Over the years it has really forced me outside of my style comfort zone. I tried things I never would have and really refined my style. I love change and I love that style can constantly evolve. I'm happy I've been able to do this for five years and hope to do it for five more. Here's to 2015 and all the changes it may bring.
Happy New Year!
