Spring Blues

Spring Blues

It's finally starting to feel like Spring in Chicago and I am LOVING IT. The other day I thrifted some blue suede Madewell mini-wedges and wanted to put together an outfit that emulated the beginning of Spring to me, even when the temps are in the low 40s (thanks, Chicago).

Season of Change

Season of Change

Spring is turning into summer, so the weather has been a bit temperamental lately! Along with the changing of the seasons, it's been a season of change for me personally as well. I'm done with my junior year of college, my internship ended, a new job is starting soon, I cut and dyed my own hair (I think it looks pretty alright for a DIY!), my family got a new dog, and I'm not quite sure what it is, but I'm feeling the best I've felt in a long time.

Reflections

This past year has been a great one-- I had to move home to the suburbs and commute to school, I fell in love with the ocean, out of love with fashion, a personal relationship ended, I almost changed majors, fell in love with the environment, became inspired by ethical fashion, spent some good time outdoors, moved back to Chicago, started crafting and creating again, got hired at my favorite company, started a new blog, deleted that blog, re-did this blog, and here I am. The year is coming to a close and I am grateful for each and everything that has happened to me. It has definitely been a roller coaster of emotions, but for the first time in a long time, I truly feel like myself. I can honestly say I'm not the same person I was a year ago, but I'm better because of it.
