r + r.

Sorry for the radio silence, but a week of rest and relaxation was just what the doctor ordered.  Last week, I made an overdue visit to the beach, indulged in my favorite summertime treats, and had one last hurrah in downtown San Diego.  The quick trip was just what I needed to feel rejuvenated.  Now it’s back to the grind and our regularly scheduled programming.

Froyo that was too good to pass up.

Nothing says summer like a little (or a lot) of neon.

And now, back to work!

hello world!

If you’re reading this inaugural post, then you probably already know me and were loving/curious/bored enough to click on my Facebook link.  Thanks for your kindness!

And if we haven’t met, well get ready!  My name is Jen and I’m a second-year law student from Arizona.  When I’m not reading court cases or writing memos (but am probably supposed to), I’m following my biggest interest in life: fashion.

It didn’t take me a long time to discover my passion, but it did take me a while to admit it to myself and to you.  So here it is: I love fashion.  I love culture.  And I love that style is a form of personal expression limited for the world to see.

So as my interest in style and culture grew so much that I could no longer keep it to myself (and the boyfriend can only listen to so much of it without exploding), I decided to start this blog.  It’ll be part personal style, part fashion, part culture, part inspiration board, part scrapbook, and a whole lotta miscellaneous.

There are a few people in my life who are currently following their dreams against all odds and I envy them.  Some of them moved across the country, some of them turned their passions into objectives, and some of them were just brave enough to get out of a career that knew they never wanted.  This blog is dedicated to them.  Because of you, this is what I tell people when they ask me about my post-grad plans: I don’t know what I want to do, but I know where I want to be.

I’m not sure what exactly will become of this blog, but I do hope you follow along on my journey.  Enjoy!
