There’s a poem by Elizabeth Bishop called “Questions of Travel” that I remember reading way way back during my high school days (good ol’ 90s fashion included). For all you poetry or literature nerds out there, I would encourage you to read it. The poem is kind of sad at first, because it pokes fun at tourism and how people travel the world without really engaging in different cultures, which is true.
Throughout the poem, Bishop talks about how staying home might be the most valuable kind of travel, if that’s even considered travel at all. I, for one, love traveling. If you read my blog, you know that. But the places I travel to are really like second homes to me, not places where I feel like an outsider tourist. If you can think of any places that feel like second homes, let me know! I wanna hear all about it.
As an adopted child, I was lucky enough to have a wonderful home growing up right in Texas. These days, I’m spending lots of my time flying to LA and NYC as I expand my horizons. I’ve been doing a lot of shoots there, especially since I know some sweet photographers in the area.
Today’s style is a very “girl next door” feel. After all, don’t you feel most comfortable in your clothes when you’re at home? You can where whatever you want without having to impress anyone, while still looking cute and comfy. I absolutely love this slip-ons with the zipper on the side, and this oversized tee makes it easy to lounge around.
Yep, it’s good to feel at home.
