Well, in four days I'll be in Italy. The time is nearly here which is so hard for me to believe. It feels like I should still have so much time left before this all begins, but I don't. On Sunday morning I'll drive to Kent, then take a bus to Detroit, a plane to Paris, and then a plane to Italy. And I will live there for four months.
I've been very busy getting things ready and finalized for the trip, as well as, trying to see people before I leave. It's been a somewhat stressful and chaotic time that I'm looking forward to leaving behind me. Ready to just get there and start adjusting and living life across seas. It's hard to imagine and prepare for something you have no idea what to expect out of.
On a different note, I've noticed that my style has definitely changed in the past year and I find it really cool to study. In high school I dressed very authentic vintage, and then my first year of college progressed to more vintage inspired. My sophomore year I began to get into much more casual dressing of mixing things up with jeans, no heels, and relaxed hair styles. This summer I've strangely found myself leaning towards easy, bohemian sorts of styles which actually kind of shocks me because that's never been something I've been interested in! There's just something about the ease, flow, subtle femininity, and naturalness of the style that really appeals to me in this point of my life right now. I picked up the shirt I'm wearing in these photos last weekend in Columbus and it's kind of unlike anything I've ever worn...but I really love it and want to find more pieces like it! I know it can probably be disappointing to see my style change because it's what attracted many of you to my blog in the first place...vintage style is a very specific community and I feel I'll always love vintage style and still dress in it. But for me, it's important that my style evolve with me as a person and not just stay stagnant because that's my 'niche' or what people want to see from me. I want what I wear to be the best representation of who I am at that moment, in that point in my life...and I hope you all can understand that! Thank you for loving me no matter what I wear! x
Hope to get a few more posts in before I leave; I'm really, really going to try because I don't know how soon I'll be able to get back at it once I'm over there! x
