Sunflower Fields Forever




For some reason these pictures scream “ahhh, to be young forever.” Like the ultimate emblem of youth.

I have a love/hate relationship with growing older and just aging, period. Like half of me loves this crazy, tumultuous ride through life and the other half of me wishes we could just pause and stop time.

Do you ever find yourself reminiscing about memories and think holy shit that was 5 years ago, how is that even possible? Where did the time go?

It’s honestly scary and I feel like the older I get the narrower my blinders become and I sometimes forget to just stop and enjoy the moment. I forget to soak up all of the sweet little things in life that are so easily taken for granted.

I had a grounding moment today when my friend Cilia and I took her girls out to the North Fork to have some fall fun at the farms. I wish sometimes I could see life through a child’s lens with just pure innocence and no predispositions. The joy on their face over the simplest things like running through a field was the sweetest thing.

Like, does ANYTHING get me as excited as they were sucking the butter off of their roasted corn on the cob?

It was a humbling moment and made me realize life is chaotic but you need to slow the f down or you’re going to end up like Adam Sandler in the movie Click- disclaimer – that movie gives me full blown anxiety.


Call your grandma.

Go on that walk.

Tell your mom you love her.

Reach out to your friends.

Don’t assume they will always be there tomorrow.

Be present. Life goes quick.

  • I get a lot of questions about what the name of my blog means so I figured I’d give you a quick rundown.
5 years ago me and one of my good friends Christina (major boss babe- give her a follow @sunkissedbychris) started a fashion blog for fun. When thinking of names we tossed up the idea of “grace and vanity” but I made a typo and for some reason we liked it. That’s when @stylebygraveandvanity was born.
Fast forward to now I still have the same name but there’s different meaning attached to it. A synonym for grave means “having a matter of importance as a topic” and I think that describes 1/2 of my blog. I talk about real shit i.e. finance, career, and self improvement. The other half of my blog is keeping up with trends and fashion and all things in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with that being said, if you are not subscribed to my blog go do so now because you’re not going to want to miss what’s coming! That’s not just an open invitation for women- there’s something for everyone. I’m devoted to creating valuable content that’s not just girly and empty bs.
If you’ve been following me for a while and would like me to discuss more on a certain topic, please give me your feedback below 📩

These past couple of weeks have been insane and can sometimes feel like life is in the pits (😏) but I am so grateful for all of the amazing people that support me and keep me going. I decided to take on a couple interior projects🔨 while working a full time sales job📈and building my blog💻andddd planning a wedding👰🏼so basically my heads about to spin off - BUT I’ve never felt more fulfilled. This is what life is all about! I can’t wait to share the content I’ve been working on with you guys, I love and appreciate you all!
  • Happy Monday friends🌷I used to have a serious case of the Sunday scaries but not anymore because I’m in complete control of my week now. I just posted some REAL SHIT on my blog about my thoughts on student debt and the status quo. Like does a degree that’s antiquated in today’s market warrant such crippling debt? Is there a bubble?
Check out my latest post and let’s discuss!🤓
