Bodysuit Vibes

Free People Basic Bodysuit | One Teaspoon Awesome Destroyed Baggies | Bandana Bolo Necklace | Off Duty Lieutenant Hat

When you live in a town where sunny days are far and few, you do everything you can to soak it up and breathe it in. You drive an hour outside of the city and you dance barefoot in the mud. You ditch your shoes, hat, and pants at the beginning of the road and keep on running. You pretend just for an hour that you don't have a job, you don't have insecurities, your heart doesn't hurt, your body isn't tired, and you focus only on how good it feels to let the sun touch your winter skin. Despite the cars that drive by every few moments and slow down to stare and despite how cold the February air feels on your face, you smile and remember to remind yourself to let go more often.

Heres another blog post featuring my limp right arm!
One of my favorite things about this blog is that I'm able to look back and see what I was wearing and feeling a year ago. It's crazy to look back at my posts from last January or two Januarys ago and see how much has changed with both my style and my life. I went through a time on this blog when I still wasn't sure who I wanted to be and that showed in the things I wore. All I knew was that I wanted to stand out. Hell, I still do! However, I'm learning more about who am I and the type of woman I want to be and of course my style is changing along the way.
Theres going to be lots of exciting changes this year and I hope you all will be along for the ride!

Free People Portland

My favorite part of my job, by far, is running our store Instagram @freepeopleportland. My sling may keep me from being in front of the camera but it can't keep me from being creative. We pulled this shoot together in a matter of minutes and I'm so happy with how it came out. I'm fortunate enough to work with  some really gorgeous women who are willing to wake up early and get creative with me no matter how bossy I am from behind the camera.

Injured Style Blogger

Hi everyone, meet my sling! 
She'll be staying with us for about 6 to 8 weeks so I thought it would be best to introduce you to her. Since she's here to stay I decorated her with some pins (theres a few more now) and now she's looking at least a little bit cuter. I won't be wearing her in photoshoots, I'm going to try to ditch her as much as I can for photos (my last blog post is a great example) and I am actually organizing and styling a few photoshoots that I will not be in so don't worry, I'm going to keep this little blog very busy.

Bodysuit Days

If you look close enough you can probably tell that my right arm (your left) is limp. Although, I think I did a pretty good job of hiding it. Truth is, I'm going to be stuck in a sling for six to eight weeks which makes being a style blogger a difficult task. Fourtunatly with a really good bodysuit and an understanding photographer I was able to go sans-sling for a few moments in order to snap these shots.
