. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Risk Taker

August 19, 2012

Risk Taker

shirt: target ($3 pajamas section)  skirt: tjmaxx (similar)  headband: made myself  bracelets: target

The words risk taker, spontaneous and adventurous are words that are far from my personality vocabulary.  
I desire routine, consistency and predictability. 

I prefer things to stay the same, so much that even changing my hair color drastically is a big step.
 And I was extremely proud of myself for dying my hair dark. 
After this post, someone left me a comment that made me incredibly happy,
telling me that I had the hippie look going on. 
Dream. Come. True.


I've always wanted to rock a headband like a hippie but am too much of a wuss to try something out of my comfort zone.  Well here it is. 

Gosh.  Who knows what's next?
Maybe I'll even attempt pattern mixing. 

And apparently I think this is what hippies do.


Peace Out Friends!

I really, really enjoyed this post! I feel as though we could be long, lost sisters because I struggle with the same exact thing. "What will people think of me???" is almost the first thought that pops into my mind, and this drives my safe, comfortable routine-even in fashion. You look adorable, are rocking the hippie look, and as always-inspiring!
