Plaid & Denim



"In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer."

I found this location over the weekend and my mom instantly had a vision for a photo that she wanted to capture.  She framed me perfectly within the scenery and this was the outcome.  As soon as I saw the image, I was instantly reminded of the quote above.  I love when a picture speaks to you or conveys a message.  Of course, that message will be different for everyone, but for me, this is it.  No matter how hard the world might push against me, within me, there is something stronger - something better, pushing right back.  I feel like everything around me in this photo represents those difficult times, but here I am, in the midst of it all, still standing strong. 

Outfit Details 
Plaid Shirt: H&M (love this one) / Chambray: Kut From The Cloth (old, similar
Sneakers: Target / Bag: H&M (love this) / Sunglasses: ThreadSence 

Switching gears for a moment, I wore this outfit for a little bit of Sunday Funday.  It was so beautiful outside and I really wanted to wear something a little different than what I usually go for.  I styled this long plaid shirt as a dress [4'11 benefits] and decided to keep it casual with these white canvas sneakers.  It seemed too plain though, so to add in an unexpected element, I tied this chambray top around my waist.  Shirt dresses are a big trend right now.  I remember back in college when I asked my father if I could wear one of his button down shirts as a dress.  I ended up wearing a blue one and belting it.  I think he thought I was crazy. :)

I've really been doing my best to come up with new content for the blog, which includes different styled looks, topics and a better variety of scenery.  I hope you like! 
Enjoy the day loves. <3
