how has my style changed since elodie came into my life? call me romantic but i imagine the way she sees me and it makes me want to put on a flowy dress or a vibrant print. i always think about the memories i am creating with my family. my husband says i live too much in a fantasy land...'and i remember my mother, the bustle of her skirts, the song she sang and her honeysuckle perfume.' but she is a part of my story and i am a part of hers.
my life experience has made up so much of my style -- riding bikes, music, foreign countries, loneliness, cooking, the desert, dinner parties, becoming a wife, work presentations, being a sister, making new friends, becoming a mother, reading biographies, staying up late with my grandma at bingo, living in a city, growing up near the ocean, rocking my baby to sleep, singing, heartache -- these things and more have overlapped creating me. along the way i have worn whatever i fancied without thinking too much about it. vintage, modern, rock n' roll, prep, bohemian -- whatever caught my eye and felt right made it's way into my closet.
