CHANGES

Today's blog post topic is something I'm really excited to talk about: CHANGE.

It's a word that can be scary sometimes, but in my experience it always leads to growth. That doesn't mean that change is easy, but the best things in life never, ever are.

Y'all know me well enough by now that you know I'm passionate about fashion and style reflecting who you are. Clothes, shoes, hair color, nail color - these are all opportunities to express your individuality! Ever since the first time my mom let me get highlights at 15, I've been addicted to changing my hair. I've never been the kind of person that sticks to one thing. It's too much fun to try new things! My fashion style too is definitely a direct reflection of that.

As I got older, switching up my hair style was based on the change of seasons, or even just a change in my mood! Other times it's been the result of a breakup (I went platinum blonde after the last one), or a career change.....a place of just desperately needing to feel like I can get myself out of whatever rut I've fallen into. It's really amazing what the thrill of a new look, and the confidence boost it can give you can do for you soul. 

I also like to think of my hair changes as bookmarks for different chapters of my life. We should never stay the same. We should never stay in one place. As humans, we were created to evolve and change - to keep being better! Beautiful things happen when we do.

So this is me, encouraging you to dye that hair - Do something that scares you - Move to that new city - Tell that guy or girl that you love them - And if you need a change.....MAKE a change!


All of those hair changes I just told you about? Here's an overview of just the last few years!

Roses Are Red

      When it's this hot outside, I'll use ANY fashion trend as an excuse to not wear pants! (LOLOL I know) With all the athleisure love still going strong, and with a nod to the Kardashians / Jenners, bike shorts are a thing and they work PERFECTLY under an oversized shirt that you want to wear as a dress without flashing the whole world when the wind blows. Backpacks and roses are everywhere right now too, and this vegan leather backpack is adorable + inexpensive. I also just discovered this super affordable eyewear line and went with a small lens style in a black frame to compliment the black bag and shorts. These boots - feel free to hate on me for wearing them ALL the time, but they were one of my few splurge pieces and after wanting a pair for years, I finally pulled the trigger when Balenciaga dropped the white ones earlier this year. Shop the exact pieces I'm wearing below! xx
