“Midwest kindness” is definitely an active term on the East and West Coast. I moved to the West Coast three years ago, and I quickly learned that these people live a bit differently. Everyone has somewhere to go, and no one will stop them from getting there. It sounds a bit intimidating, but once you get into the swing of things, it turns into adrenaline.
There is so much confusion as to what the word “tunic” actually describes. It started in the Roman Empire in the 3rd century BC. A Roman tunic was used as an under garment for a toga or just a long shirt for the lower classes. The word evolved with history, and it ended up describing a shirt, layering piece, and a dress. Different class identifications were associated with it as civilizations came and went.
Contrasting patterns are like eye-candy when it comes to outfits. It adds and eclectic and curious element to a look, and it leaves people staring (in a good way). There are some rules to follow when putting the ensemble together.
I’ve been drawn to vintage/worn-in tie-dye tees lately. The best ones in Goodwill or in vintage shops are always the kid sizes. They have profound graphics and color. When I found this one, I was shopping for a styling job. I couldn’t say no.
Laying in bed ignoring my alarm, I had the most random thought. My mind flashed to a seen of my pre-teen self flipping from one television station to another. One of my favorite after-school-activities was to come home and watch Friends. When that was over I moved one channel up to watch That 70’s Show. This was pre-Netflix, so our modern binge-watching was watching reruns of television shows everyday after school.
Random half awake thoughts are my favorite because they give me the best inspiration. Mine are often random flashes of the past, possible encounters of the future, or just flat out weird scenarios. When I have them, I often use them to get dressed in the morning. That being said, I channel my inner Donna, Jackie, and Fez.
