My personal style is always evolving. I think that is part of the beauty in fashion. I love that I can wear something one day and something entirely different the next. For example, Rihanna can dress head to toe in a grunge goth outfit and then the next day she can pull off her sweet pretty-in-pink Rihanna aesthetic. Prime example is her latest music video for work which by the way is impeccable if you haven’t already seen it. Now I’m no Rihanna, but I do think we should all channel our inner ‘Rihanna’ and dress without boundaries.

Somedays I love my vintage threads and other days I love embodying more urban styles. I constantly find myself torn between the two, which isn’t how it has to be. You don’t consistently need to wear one thing for it to be yours. Yes, many people have signature looks, or pieces that we associate with them. But maybe incorporate that particular piece with a different look or style. Try to explore the fashion boundaries we sometimes confine ourselves within. No one is forcing you to portray yourself in one uniform way.

For this look I ditched my vintage mom jeans and traded in my cowboy boots for shadow greys. I’m wearing a head to toe V-files look, with the exception of my thermal underneath, partially because it was freezing outside! Whenever I put an outfit on I get consumed in the story behind the look or who this girl is. So I decided to take this look to the streets, quite literally, and do a shoot in a jungle gym and on the courts. Whenever I put something on I always want to showcase a version of myself. Even if it’s something you wouldn’t normally wear, I want to encourage you to take risks and just wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
