Ext. Park in Early Spring - Day
Sunsets come and go right before her eyes. Where does it all go? Why leave her behind? She grasps at the wind trying to hold onto time, but the clock keeps on running.


I'm almost always able to feel the pressure of time. Much of my time is spent thinking about the future and trying to reach the goals that I have for myself, and often times I'm left feeling like there's just not enough hours in the day, or that I'm falling behind if I stop concentrating on it for even a second. I just hate how fast it goes, when I still have so much further to go myself. That's just life though, and I have to keep reminding myself that if I keep working then I will get where I want to be, and that 22 is actually not old (even though it's hard for me not to feel like it is). 

Umm, ok idk why we are talking about the inter workings of my brain when we could be talking about how Jackie Kennedy I feel in this pink houndstooth structured dress. If only I had worn white gloves and a pillbox hat it would've been perfecttttt, and maybe a little over the top since I wore this to dinner and the movies and not on a presidential campaign or anything Kennedyesque at all. (too bad!) Turns out I snapped these photos just in time, considering just a day later and these pretty trees have already turned almost completely green. I also gave myself quite the sinus headache doing so. Bradford pear trees don't play, when it comes to them, beauty really is pain. 

Hope all you humans are getting plenty of vitamin D! (we're talking about sunshine here) Also, if you get the chance you should head to Sonic and try a Strawberry Vanilla Coke because it is in fact the actual bomb.

That awkward moment when a stranger doesn't know whether they should walk in front of your tripod or not so they sort of freeze mid step.

Spring Mixtape



Alright everyone, I challenge you to think back to a time before spotify playlists or even CD burning, when it was customary to make your favorite humans a playlist via cassette. Considering we have a new spring season among us, I thought it only right to make one to share here, with all of you. Mhmm, you're welcome. If you follow me on any of my social media accounts then you've gotten a preview of this already, but since you have traveled all the way to my actual blog, you get not just one, but 5 extra songs! And on that note, I'm going to stop before this gets anymore weird. (I just ate ice cream, so you're dealing with a sugar hyped Desirae at 1 AM). Anyways, here's a few songs for you to perform in the shower, at your local karaoke joint, or even accidentally for all the other cars you get stopped at a red light with...guilty!

1. The Lovin' Spoonful - Daydream
2. Mumm-ra - She's Got You High
3. LEN - Steal My Sunshine
4. Black Lips - Bad Kids
5. Lana del Rey - I Can Fly
6. April Smith and the Great Picture Show - Wow and Flutter
7. Rilo Kiley - Silver Lining
8. George Ezra - Budapest
9. Shovels and Rope - Birmingham
10. Janelle Monae - Tightrope

Ext. High Street - Day
Heading West on High Street she pauses for traffic, mentally adds a red scooter to her already long wish list, and crosses to the other side. (Horns honk. Softly muted music changes with passing cars.)


I would like to go ahead and deem today #modmonday. If that's not already a thing, then it definitely should be. We can all just wear breezy shifts that are as comfy as oversized t-shirts and block heel flats that are as cute as they are easy to wear. Funky poses and matching backgrounds are of course encouraged. My ootd was all of these things and maybe a little bit more thanks to the geometric overlay on this Cindy+Johnny dress. Dresses like these are what I like to call "Twiggy Approved". Something tells me she would've worn this, only with better hair and eye make up than I had today. (Give me a break, it's Monday for goodness sake!) Dresses like this are also what makes me wish I was about 3 inches taller. It's already super cute, but if I had some long T. Swift stems just think how fab this dress would look! All in all though, I'm good with my height, and everyone else should be with theirs too, because we're all uniquely made and the differences in each of us are what makes us interesting. And interesting is good. Allow me to sum this up the best way I know how...you do you, boo boo.

Have a happy Monday humans, and if the moment feels right, hit me with the #modmonday over on Instagram @tennesseeroseblog or Twitter @dear_desirae_ so I know it's real.

Ext. Neighborhood Parking Lot - Day
Her hair catches wind as she sits upon the hood of her El Camino inhaling spring and exhaling freedom.

Good news! I found a new car! Don't be mislead, I literally found this one en route from the doctor's office to my favorite Mexican restaurant, passed right by it in an empty parking lot, and whipped right back around to go take pictures with it. Thank you, to whoever left this little baby all by itself, and could somebody please leave me 50's/60's Cadillac or Chevy Nova, something like that around next? That would be my favorite. Ahh, maybe one day I'll own the pastel retro car of my dreams, until then you can catch me rollin' in the Sentra.  Probably on the way to get tacos. Those are also my favorite. For my day of hanging out at the doctor's office reading outdated People magazines and chewing about a half a pack of gum before getting called to go in for my 10 minute appointment (waits can be so crazy there!), I showed up in a floral SKORT (basically the mullet of clothing: business on the bottom and party on the top), a classic button up, some comfy oxfords, and some gold chains 'cause I'm still a G. Some actual good news, the doctor officially declared me staph free! If you've been reading regularly, you've heard that I was really sick with a staph infection ab 2 or 3 weeks ago, but thankfully now I'm well! Gone are the nights where my sleep cycle is interrupted by 3AM antibiotics! Whuuuuuuuut!

Hope you all have a happy first day of Spring!
