Charlotte Jane Memorial Cemetery in Coconut Grove, Miami

 Back in December 2020 my parents and I visited the historic Charlotte Jane Memorial Cemetery in Coconut Grove in between our tours of tropical gardens in the area. This cemetery is rumored to be part of the inspiration for Michael Jackson's Thriller music video. I saw this graveyard from the road and immediately was intrigued. I have loved roaming graves for years, but I've never been to a cemetery as thrilling as this! Back in 2016 I visited Nola on a solo trip and explored many historic cemeteries alone. I love reading what the epitaphs say.. I love seeing how old the dates are. 

I don't think my parents totally understand my obsession but they humored me and joined me on the little tour. Thanks for humoring my love of morbid things, Mom & Dad! <3

thanks for taking a look. Do you enjoy visiting cemeteries? What's your favorite part?

love, polly


Outfit: Florida Keys Christmas

Traveling to the Florida Keys is a tradition in my family as you might have noticed... and after the year 2020 presented I decided to take my ticket and just go for it. I spent Thanksgiving alone while everyone else seemed to gather with their families. I did my best to always wear my mask and stay away from other people. It was so incredibly nice to be in the sun and swim in a heated pool. Seeing the palm trees and iguanas roaming around is also always a favorite part for me. I am really thankful I was able to spend the holiday with my parents seeing beautiful nature and we were able to eat our meals outside while distancing ourselves.
Happy New Year!
love, polly


Outfit: Not the End of the World

Has anyone been listening to the new Katy Perry (KP5) album? I just got the vinyl in the mail and I've been spinning it here and there.. I think my favorite album is Prism but this is a cute album and a cute idea! This look was inspired by Katy and the name of this post is one of my favorite songs on her new album! I can't wait to go see her live for her KP5 tour! Hopefully we get a safe and effective vaccine soon because I am also about to start attending my sonography clinical site where I will be working in a hospital for 3 days a week! I am very excited to get the hands on experience I've been craving with the public! I feel like as a wardrobe stylist and florist I bring a unique approach to medical imaging and the personal care aspect attracts me because I feel I help people feel a little more at ease when they are feeling nervous about their exams. I've been very hands on with wardrobe fittings and theatrical backstage assisting as well as assisting on commercial shoots and film sets with changing and alterations. I am hoping this translates nicely to the hospital setting and I hope to improve lives!
