I never announced this hereon my blog, but I decided a while ago to quietly relocate to a new platform and website HERE over half a year ago. It seemed fitting that I did so quietly, as my new website exists as more of a mix between travel, lifestyle, and style posts as well as my photography, all of which I didn't really explore so much here on this blog. While it has been a fantastic three or so years with this blog, I no longer feel drawn to personal style posts so much as they are so abundant here on the internet now. It is, I think, a more adequate reflection of my current aesthetic tastes and aspirations. However, I will continue to share what inspires me and what I'm subsequently inspired to create on my new site as well as Instagram, as always @highstitchedvoice.

Thank you all for always being so patient and encouraging through the years.

Love from the bottom of my heart xx,

I don't know what it is about the color blue, but it's my favorite color this season other than the usual neutrals. I've been reading Maggie Nelson's beautiful book of poetry Bluets, and that may be partially why I keep on thinking an unnecessary, almost inane, amount about the color, but I've come to the consensus that I don't care if over half the population's favorite color is blue, because I love it, too. She writes on the color blue as a favorite color: "It is tempting to derive some kind of maturity narrative here: eventually we sober up and grow out of our rash love of intensity (i.e. red); eventually we learn to love more subtle things with more subtlety, etc., etc. But my love for blue has never felt to me like a maturing... for the fact is that one can maintain a chromophilic recklessness well into adulthood."

It's funny that a lot of my time here in New York thus far has consisted of some major park-hopping, and the juxtaposition of natural spaces within the city. I think that having left a lot of greenery in California, I've just been drawn to these little pockets of green. I am slightly obsessed with Prospect Park (despite the fact that it is a ways away from me) and the Hudson River Park/Pier 40 (which is, at the moment, within walking/running distance). What I love about the two aforementioned parks is that you don't feel like you are in New York necessarily and there are definitely less tourists than in Central Park. Thankfully, Central Park on the Upper West is less touristy as well (the place in the pictures), and has enough room for frolicking. The sun has been setting so late, and I've really been able to spend time until late evening inside of various parks.
