Hint: It involves not giving a damn and having fun doing it!
But first, a confession: Posting outfits makes me feel a little strange!
It's a litte more "look at me!!!" than I'm used to and honestly, I started this blog with the intention of focusing more on healthy + magical recipes.
So why have I been posting so much about style?
You see, I've always really loved reading style blogs and there's something magical about the process of watching someone's image evolve over time.
I've been following some of my favorite style blogs (like this one! and this one!) for years and it seems like their blogs have really been places for wardrobe experimentation and refinement - they've all grown stylistically so much since I've been keeping up and have really solidified their person styles in ways that make me a wee bit (ok, a big bit) jealous.
I've always loved clothes and playing dress up but I think the prospect of going to grad school this fall (eeeeeeeep!) has had me really thinking seriously for the first time about developing my style - who do I want to be now that I'm almost a real live professional adult?
Answer: I want to be the kind of professional adult that wears flower crowns and crop tops.
Flower crowns have been a major thing across the Land of the Internet and I couldn't be happier about it: what's more fun than wearing giant colorful flowers in your hair?
I'm on a mission to make them more ubiquiotous off the internet and away from the festival scene, too - why not wear flower crowns, all the time? That's my politcal platform y'all.
I wore this summery combination of giant fake flowers and cosmic flamingos for a day wandering around LA's Olvera Street - the oldest street in the city, filled with a market selling traditional Mexican crafts and candies, restaurants with dreamy patios and margaritas, and seemingly constant dance parties happening under the street's oak trees - what better place for a crazy flower crown?
