Pastel Pink Hair + Gingham and Polkadots

I know it’s still “Fashion Month” and designers all over the world are debuting their upcoming fall/winter lines. But I don’t care what the fashion industry says, summer ain’t over ’til it’s over. And until I see leaves changing, I’m still rocking my summer essentials. TRY AND STOP ME.

The fashion world moves sooo fast, and maybe it’s just me, but I often have a difficult time keeping up. I’m past that period of my life where I just want to buy all the new shit all the time. And I care more about buying things that I’ll still love in a year (or 5 years), bonus points if the thing will actually last as long as I aim to keep it.

As a fashion blogger, you might think that part of my job is to sell you clothes, but honestly, I’m not here to do that. That’s never what I wanted to do when I started this blog. And frankly, if that were my underlying mission, it would be kind of gross. You already have a million other messages vying for your attention and pressuring you to buy certain things, or look a certain way, or fit into whatever box women are supposed to fit into these days. Fuck that.

If you fall in love with a piece that I’m wearing, and you buy it—awesome. If I introduce you to a brand or product and you end up loving it also—great. But that’s not my sole purpose here. This is not a dig on other bloggers, I just want to be clear about my mission and what you should expect to find here. This is a place for experimentation and fun and inclusivity and self love. Which is kind of the opposite of the fashion industry now that I think about it…

Anyways, what I’m trying to say is, this place is yours. It exists for you and because of you. If there is anything you want to see here please let me know. As always, thank you for patiently reading yet another one of my rants. I appreciate you following me and supporting this endeavor!

  1. Such a good read! The fashion industry is like a mile a minute and it creates so much pressure for people! I love your summer wear and if it’s hot out, why wouldn’t you wear it! Also why wouldn’t you wear the same things you did last year, what actually is wrong with that!!! Stay true to who you are. Love this girl!
