Puff Sleeve Dress & Pouring into Yourself

Treat yourself like a garden, you have to pour into you and nurture yourself in order to grow and flourish! So I challenge you to do at least one thing each day that brings you joy and nurtures you.
Pouring into yourself can be as simple or elaborate as you like. For me sometimes it looks like being still, reading something uplifting or journaling my thoughts. Other times pouring into myself is spending time in nature enjoying beautiful scenery. Remember to treat yourself like a garden, you have to nurture yourself to flourish and grow!
One positive that has come out of this pandemic is that it has motivated me to do more local and domestic traveling until I'm ready to catch international flights again. These photos were taken in the Colonial Park Rose Garden which is about 20 minutes away from my apartment in New Jersey.  I can't believe I only discovered this Garden a few months ago, but I am glad I did! Also glad that it was actually warm enough to wear this outfit a few weeks ago when it was in the 70s because it's officially getting cold in New Jersey at 50 degrees this week!

For my look I decided to be simple with puff sleeve dress from Target and Bronze Crocodile ankle boots from Vionic. See more of this look and inspirational reminders on my Instagram post here.

  1. This dress is so so cute! Did it come in different colors? Also, I agree that prioritizing time for self is so critical. Especially in these Covid/political times
