Greetings my summer loves! Hope everything has been going well for all of you! I've recently been trying to revamp TDF, and have finally gotten to it! What do you all think? I've realized going through this process of recreating the site, I wanted it to reflect me more and it got me thinking into the deep roots of why I started this blog in the first place.
So I went back looking at my old posts/outfits and realized that I've changed style wise. When I first started TDF, I didn't read as many blogs as I do now and I didn't have an Instagram; all I went by was photos by Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman and the editorials published on Fashion Gone Rogue. I felt as if now I was just wanting and feeling the need to look like all of the bloggers I follow now and see on Instagram. (Nothing it wrong with them, don't get me wrong but I feel like I was just getting lost) It's great that I was feeding of inspiration, but I realized I have to get back to my roots. My weird, print-mixing roots. I think I was having a semi-indentity crisis and I can't believe I'm actually opening up about it. But alas, I just needed a little insomnia one night to get me thinking. And it feels really good to be back.
I've had this Prabal Gurung top from his Target collection since the first day it came out and I'm finally showcasing it! If you don't know, Prabal Gurung is pretty much one of my favorite designers EVER. His clothing is cool, fun, and sophisticated with the right amount of hip elegance. So obviously, I ran to my Target to snag what I could when his collection came out. It's the perfect loud print shirt I needed, so why not pair it with the perfect loud pair of pants I have? Thank godric for my neutral Sam Edelman Trinas though, I can wear them with anything! Aren't they lovely? Until next time...
