So. First post. WOW. It’s been a long road to get here and I’ve been dreaming about this first post for weeks. What will I say? How will it land? Curating this space has taken months and although scary, it feels like a breath of fresh air to finally get it out there. To all of you who have supported me on any step of the journey, words cannot begin to express my profound gratitude. Whether you sat with me over coffee listening to my crazy brainstorm sessions or read my list of 47 emails containing endless website notes, you know who you are. Your words, your love and your enthusiasm are and continue to be invaluable.
That said, my “word”, if you will, for 2015 is GROWTH. To push myself beyond anything I’ve done before and put myself out there in all the best ways possible. I’ve never been a big one for resolutions because, let’s just call it what it is. Resolutions by definition are an act of solving a problem, fixing that which appears to be broken. Not that I’m against bettering myself, quite the contrary, I just want to see my 2015 from a different lens. Growth is a core value of extreme importance to me, be it personal or professional. It is only through continued growth that we can offer our most amazing self to others and support them in doing the same. So I want to cherish all the best of 2014 and charge powerfully into this next year, with all of you!
Anddd (drum roll please) here it is-my first personal style post of 2015. The spinning and bouncing around felt very appropriate, as did this lighter weight, yet still warm look, as Los Angeles has been a beautiful 60 degrees as of late. These jeans are borrowed (with every intention of stealing…?) from my mother-the strong, beautiful woman who taught me that there is never a failure in this life, only growth and learning. So here’s to every one of you, looking to grow and create something amazing in 2015.
