It’s that glorious time of year where the chill has subsided, the sun is shining, and flowers are-a-blooming…and that also means the time for festivals has officially begun. And while there are plenty of Coachella-and-beyond style tips out there, I put my own spin on it with more timeless options that will keep you comfortable and lovely while still padding your wardrobe with versatile pieces.
To hear more and get details on where each piece comes from, head on over to Drifter and the Gypsy!
“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms.”

Ran across these words this morning here and felt they were such a perfect Monday reminder for me and for anyone in any field. A reminder to not concern yourself with comparison, to fight any feelings of inadequacy or concern, and allow yourself to feel confidence in your own long-term visions, your own goals (big and small). Allow yourself to bloom on your terms, where you stand. Offer the world your version of beauty, your vision of positivity and purpose, and not only will you radiate a unique beauty, but you will add to the community of creativity — there is room for us all in the lovely bouquet. So bloom friends, bloom!
Happy Wednesday friends! Today marks the second installment of the Millay Vintage style column over on Drifter and the Gypsy, so be sure to head on over to get more information about the outfit you see above, where to get each piece, and learn how we *really* feel about the 1952 film classic Singin’ in the Rain.
My love and I are making some decisions together about our future and what the next few years might look like, which has been quite an exciting time, but a time where I have been eagerly wishing that months would move faster and that it would be summer already. But then I looked up and realized, holy hell, the first quarter of the year DID fly by and it’s already Spring!
March was full of celebrating a friend’s Parisian engagement, General Gazpacho’s birthday (woohoo!), the first peek at local Spring markets, and lots and lots of prepping of new Spring inventory for the shop. We also just wrapped up our biggest sale to date at Millay Vintage and excitedly packaged up a ton of wears and wares for lovely new owners. (I can’t thank you all enough for your patronage of the shop, I love love love each of you!) And there are some big things in the works for the shop that will come to fruition in the coming months, and I am so humbled and overjoyed at Millay Vintage’s growth thus far and the exciting future ahead.
Ok ok, before I yammer on for too long, I bid you adieu March! Thank you for being so kind, but do take your cold weather and snow with you and bring that sunshiny warmth to Boston already.
Any of you have some big plans coming up for the month?

Hi loves! I’m excited to announce a fun collaboration I’ll be doing over on the beautiful Drifter and the Gypsy blog: I’ll be serving as a fashion and style contributor for a six-part series where I’ll be taking over their “Imaginary Outfits” column. Today marks the first installment, so be sure to head on over to get more information about the outfit you see above!
” Try to learn to breathe deeply,
really to taste food when you eat
when you sleep
really to sleep.
Try as much as possible to be wholly alive
with all your might,
and when you laugh,
laugh like hell.
And when you get angry, get good and angry.
Try to be alive. ”
— William Saroyan
The sentiment of these words has been my life anthem these past couple years. To be present, to not limit life with expectations or experiences with preconceptions. Letting go of what I am supposed to be or do or look like and allowing myself to simply **be alive** has completely changed my life; the way I love; the way I am able to be loved; the way I take on each day and the challenges they bring. So when I saw these beautiful words scribed by Chelsea Petaja, I made a quick impulse buy because the articulation here is perfect and now I get to look over while I work and be reminded continually to really—no REALLY—experience life.
