Morning Reverie - OJ AND CIGS

Morning Reverie

Night bleeds into day. The hours melt together. I sway with the sea, lean into a reverie.

How many nights have you stayed out and lost track of time? Next thing you know day breaks. You feel one of two ways: really guilty yearning to wash yourself clean of the previous night’s debauchery, OR really alive and at peace, thankful for a brand new day. Here’s to you, daybreakers, to all those late nights and early sunrises that made you shine from within and beam with gratitude… 

About the look – A blazer is a staple piece to have in your wardrobe, as it can be styled different ways and be worn all year-round. Here, an oversized blazer and boyish silhouette are offset with ladylike details – sparkly sequins, chic heels, pearl buttons. The Calvin Klein halter top adds a touch of sport, as I’m pretty obsessed with sportswear and have been incorporating it into my daily looks, either dressed up or dressed down. I should note, I just returned from SS18 New York Fashion Week and came back super inspired by all the runway fashions and badass street style, so stay tuned for more, and follow me on Instagram for my daily musings 🤳

  • Archivistlady

    I am completely enchanted with this photography. I think I went back to look at it several times.

  • WOW! The photographs in this post are so beautiful, you look so pretty and enchanting in all of those. Love your sequinned pants and your eye makeup! x

  • Sreekar Harinatha

    Wifey loved the set! Now she will scroll the internet till she finds it! 🙂 Lovely pics she says!

  • You make looking like going to the beach is a fancy thing with that outfit– yet it is so casual! I hope you had a great time at the beach.

  • God, I’m in love with this look! You look totally gorgeous, and I’m jealous of your hair. I should probably wear more blazers as they look many outfits better.

  • Laura Dove

    Oh how beautiful!! You look amazing and your hair is too gorgeous!! Love what you did with the mirror, so beautiful.

  • Melanie Edjourian

    Before having my children I used to love halter tops and wore them often over the summer. I can’t get away with them now although I am now training so maybe next summer. Love that halter top its like the ones I used to have.

  • Kallia Manika

    I love your style! I would have never thought to put them together and yet the whole look looks classy, yet easy going!

  • Beautiful poetic words. There have been many nights were I have just lost track of time and before I knew it my real life would begin again. That is time for you, it is constantly slipping through our fingers. On another note I love your storytelling in these images x

  • Alison Rost

    Love this thought. When I was in my 20’s and 30’s I used to have lots of mornings where I though”ugh” Now that I’m in my 40’s .. those are rare. After a while, you stop having too many regrets. x

    • I guess that is what getting wiser teaches us. To live in the moment and be more open to living our lives in a meaningful way x

  • Early sunrise walks are always very beautiful. I loved your white Zara pants. Black halter top is really going it with this pants very well. I loved the photography with long grass and strong winds. I can feel strong winds from photos only.

  • Jhilmil Bhansali

    Early morning walks are so beautiful, completely in nature without any hustle and bustle of busy city life. Loved those Zara Pants and the heels.

  • I really like how your photographer is making use of mirrors in your photos. You were lucky to attend the Fashion Week, I can imagine how inspiring it must have been.

  • it’s been a while since I went out and it turned into daybreak lol. I love the way this outfit was put together, You look awesome and I love the blazer.

  • David Elliott

    I love your style here. It’s just very beautiful and unique. I love the blazer with the top and the skirt. Just very beautiful and I love the hair and the rest of your look as well.

  • Sonika Balyan

    Your outfit is very unique. I love your hair too, what colour do you use? I too like sportsware and I find it impressive how you manage to incorperate it into other styles

  • The photos are so beautiful. You look great. Love the hair and your top.

  • Mayuri Saxena

    These are rare mornings for me and I still yearn to stay up all night without thinking about the next day. I might call it “guilty pleasures”. I loved all the pics you have shared…love your style, location and shots taken.

  • Kristine Nicole Alessandra VA

    I love the outfit. It looks so carefree, perfect for the topic of this post. I work crazy shift, starting at 2am and ends at 11am. My circadian rhythm is now so mixed up, it confuses me whether I am eating breakfast or lunch or dinner!

  • Those are some gorgeous shots! I love the whole vibe of it. 🙂

  • ⓖene ⓡose

    I love that jacket! It looks like it would go with so much! And your nails are amazing by the way.

  • Nayna Kanabar

    The jacket looks really nice and it totally pairs well with the pants. The oversized look although is big looks really stylish and suits you .
