Stuff and Fluff (Pt I)

Seattle is getting caught up in a snow storm this weekend. I thought, what better time to do a “get to know me” post. Beyond my love for dresses and the color pink, I’ll be sharing 10 things about me, some “real stuff” and some “fun fluff.” Let’s start with the first 5, so be sure to check my upcoming post for Part II.

1. I’m quite shy. On the exterior, you may never guess it, I can smile, make small talk and engage in conversations. On the inside, I’m rattled and having a mini social anxiety moment. I’m not one to be the center of attention although what’s on the outside doesn’t always reflect that. I like to wear bright colors and standout patterns and you would think that I have a loud, outgoing and boisterous personality. However, I’m quite the opposite. Maybe the things I am wearing on the outside is just myself projecting who I want to be internally. My love of pink and animal prints may well be a good reflection of who I really am underneath and this is my way of bringing her out.

2. When I was younger, my dream was to be a model and a writer. I went about it the unconventional and non traditional way, but I can actually say that I’m living my dream. This may not be everyone else’s idea of being a model/ writer, but it’s mine. This is making me happy and I’m falling in love with the process. I get to wear my dresses and write about it! Always be your own star! Therefore, in my eyes, I’m  model and a writer.

3. I’m hopelessly directionally challenged. It doesn’t matter if I’ve been there a dozen times or if my GPS is on. Chances are, Ill take the street right before, miss an exit or just take a wrong turn in general. I’m not sure how it happens, but if you want to be late or lost, I’m your girl. I try, I really do.

4. I love coffee! I’m not sure if it’s a prerequisite to love coffee if you are a Seattle-ite, given that there are Starbucks and barista stands on every corner. I started when my son was a toddler, just to keep up with all of his energy. Years later, I’m still finding excuses for my morning cup of joe. There is nothing quite like a jolt of java that gets me going into high gear.

5. I’m a vegetarian. At times, i can be a “flexitarian” but generally I choose to go meatless. It was a choice I made a few years ago and I’m genuinely happy with my lifestyle change.  Don’t get me wrong, vegetarian doesn’t always mean healthy. I can’t turn down cheese and indulge in more than my fair share of chips and candy. With meat though, I just don’t have a taste for it.

A Splash of Pink

Brrrrr… it’s cold and snowy, it’s most definately winter. I like a little snow here and there but I’m really hopeful for an early spring!  A splash of color is a fun way to break away from the bleak winter days. Pink is my favorite color. Pink can have a calming effect and can help ease symptoms of depression and anxiety. Sometimes, a bright pink can be a little challenging to pair or even a little intimidating. I’m not one to shy away from brights, especially pink. Let the vibrant color speak for itself by combining it with a shade that’s toned down. By pairing with a neutral shade, it’s much more wearable.

Can we take a minute and talk about Hunter boots? The rain boot, the ever popular Wellington’s that even the royals and everyone else under the sun that’s been sporting them. I’m in love with mine and even with the endless colors and styles, I still gravitated towards the bright pink pair. No regrets in getting a bold hue at all, I’ve worn these on repeat at least a dozen times now. Living in Seattle, rain boots are a must have. Yes, it’s true, it’s always raining in Seattle. It rains over 150 days out of the year and you can bet I’ll be wearing them a lot! Do you own a pair of hunter rain boots? Which color is your favorite?
