I KNOW WHAT you're thinking and I still wish I had this Minnie Mouse tee, too.

Left to Right. Big Brother <> Little JaKenna <> Bigger Cousin.

Also, I've been THE WORST about posting lately and I promise to change that very soon! 

Love,

the ides of march: et tu brute?

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN fascinated with the Ides of March. Besides being a Shakespeare lover (and I say that with the utmost pretension...JK, but seriously that dude is responsible for our modern language), I'm also intrigued by Caesar's ignoring of his murderous prophecy. If it were me, I probably would've hidden in my bed while watching MadMen and eating pints and pints of ice cream until midnight rang and the Ides of March were officially done-so.

But this also makes me think about how many times I've ignored my intuition and ultimately regretted a decision. Well, not exactly regretted... more like screamed DOH! whilst slapping my forehead.

Note to self: must trust self.

Anyway! In the spirit of this Roman remembrance, I've chosen a few of my top SUMMER choices inspired by the great empire... with a twist. Obvi :-)

Love,
JaKenna

snapped in tompkins square park

I WONDER WHAT I was thinking as these photos were snapped. 'Tis a mystery as I don't remember. But I'll leave you with this:

The act of forgetting is crucial to create preciousness.


Yeah, ponder that.

Love,

THERE ARE ONLY so many times you come across a sparkly tie. And when you do, your only choice is to purchase said sparkly tie. At least that's what my internal dialogue worked out. Do ya dig?

When I wear this look, I immediately feel like a:

A) British rock star
B) Secret agent
C) Ninja
D) ALL OF THE ABOVE

If you have selected D, then you are correct, my friend. You are correct indeed.

Love,
JaKenna
