red + blue.

So I’m definitely busting out another romper — not just because I’m obsessed with them, but because I’m wild about my school.  The past week was all about donning the red and blue as we watched our basketball team bring their best to the NCAA Tournament.

While we had our hearts broken in the Elite Eight, all of the cheering, camaraderie, and ‘BTFD’ Facebook statuses, reminded me of how much I love being a Wildcat.  I love our team and my Wildcat fam, and I can’t wait for next season!  Bear Down!

We may still be a few months away from summer, but that didn’t stop me from busting out a romper last week.  I absolutely adore these one-piece getups.  As the temperature rises, the layers of clothing decrease, and a romper offers a simple solution for casual attire.

While my initial experiences wearing a romper were limited to poolside activities, I began embracing it for its youthful versatility.  I prefer a romper with a fun pattern (of course) and a little frill at the bust to minimize frumpiness.  Throw on a skinny belt and wedges, and this outfit is ready to go places beyond the beach.

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!
