Student. Greenpoint. 

 

Sarah was born in a beach town in Florida. Seeking more energy than the small towns she was accustomed to, she moved to Brooklyn with her husband two years ago to pursue a degree in Nursing as well as be closer to her friends.

I wake up around 8am, do 30 minutes of exercises & yoga stretches. I then have my coffee & breakfast while perusing free craigslist and my horoscope.

I mostly shop at Beacon’s Closet, and at Darling to fulfill my desire to have new clothes.

I don’t have a particular aesthetic; First, I go for things that make me feel excited, then I ask myself can afford this/will wear this? Although that gets thrown out if I decide I’m in love with it.

I love McGorlick Park for its roses & peonies in spring, the beautiful square with the archway, and the farmers market. Transmitter Park is another favorite of mine. I love to walk my dog there.

Sarah's Favorite Books.

Sarah's Favorite Books.

These books have been in my life for quite some time! I first read A Hero of Our Time in high school. I love rereading favorite books periodically throughout life. Each time it’s a different experience with a new perspective. A Hero of Our Time never gets old to me. I love the antihero, Pechorin and I’m always moved by how beautifully and accurately Lermontov depicts winter.

I’m so lucky to live with an amazing fashion designer, illustrator, and boutique owner, Donna Jean Baxter. Whenever I don’t know what to wear or have anything to wear, she dresses me up... it’s like having a sister who only has the best stuff.

Sarah's beauty products.

When buying beauty products, I want it to smell good, work well, and contain natural plant based ingredients. I get a lot of my stuff at this shop in Greenpoint called Brooklyn Groove. I think the most important things are to wash your face, moisturize, and protect it with sunscreen.
 

Sarah's Favorite Records from Left to Right:  Daniel Johnston 'Hi, How Are You' ; Elliott Smith 'From a Basement on the Hill' ; Mulatu Astatqé 'Mulatu of Ethiopia' & Cocteau Twins 'The Pink Opaque'.

I know these are probably everyone’s favorite records, but there’s a reason for that.

Lately I’ve been inspired by Laura Sfez & Goldie Hawn from Overboard. I like classy, simple silhouettes that are both classic and sexy. And then somedays I want jeans and a T-shirt and flats!

My ideal weekend would be to drive upstate to the New Paltz area since I lived there for two years and miss the nature and small town charm. I would climb to the top of a waterfall, go swimming in a mountain stream, go shopping at the antique and thrift stores, and eat farm-to-table!
