Hi!

I feel that everyone needs some sort of creative outlet, or passion project. This is mine. I share original and curated content of everything from photographs of my home, to my love for plants, to my carefully curated playlists. My hope is that this blog will serve as a source of inspiration for you as well.

You ever have a vision in your head about a specific look that you want to create, from the perfect basic tee, to that perfect pair of hip-hugging jeans, to those perfect ankle strap sandals, but can never seem to bring that vision to life? That's me. My style is very minimal; I don't particularly care for bold colors or patterns, and I don't wear much jewelry or bulky costume pieces. My idea of accessorizing is a pair of diamond-esque stud earrings and a nice watch. Knowing this, you would think it'd be fairly easy to create all these super cool minimal looks I envision in my head, and perhaps sometimes, I do hit the ball out of the park, but there's still work to be done.

There are very few people whose style I completely obsess over. In fact, I can probably count on one hand who they are, if we're being honest. What's interesting is that my top style icons all have a style completely opposite of mine. Tracee Ellis Ross, Solange, and Kelis to be specific. Their aesthetics are ironically divergent from what my eyes would normally go towards in a store (with the exception of Tracee - give me all of her clothes. I'll wear bold colors and patterns for SURE, if I could adopt her wardrobe).

I guess that in some way, I would take something from each of them if I could, or else they wouldn't be on my list. But, I'm a nudes & basics girl through and through. I love grays, blacks, taupes, and whites, with an occasional army green, and I am completely content with my entire wardrobe primarily consisting of only these colors. Lately, I've been loving blush tones as well, which, to me, is also considered a nude. Give me all the nudes.

 This evening, I was online browsing for new inspiration when I came across a photo of a young lady on Pinterest. I loved her outfit, and wanted to know more, find out more, plus see more photos of her because I just knew that if she looked this damn fly in the photo that I saw, surely her flyness was consistent across the board. I did a google image search (because Google is indeed the best friend I've always wanted), and found her blog  & Instagram account in seconds. If I had to sum up all those super cool and effortless looks that I create in my head on a daily basis that I seem to have a hard to bringing to life, they would look something like Andy Csinger's aesthetic. It takes a lot to impress me, and it's very rare that I fall head over heels for someone's style, so when I do, it's a big deal. She literally gets it right every time.
