Yesterday, I went on a pinning spree and I decided to take a closer look at my boards and what I've been pinning for the last few months. I was immediately reminded of Bri's comment about her own pinterest boards, that they almost make her teary eyed because she can see so much of herself in them. Our personal style is always a journey, but I began asking myself, do I see myself in these boards? Does the images represented here scream out "ANNE!" or are they merely copies of others I admire?
I weeded out a few images, but for the most part, I was happy to find that I do see a lot of myself in these inspiration boards.
As a Colorado girl through and through, I am immediately drawn to naturalistic, simple style. I love neutral tones and clean lines. As an artist, I am a lover of bold statements, patterns, colors and shapes. I also love bright lipsticks and pops of color. When I went to school in New England, I donned a lot of sporty, preppy pieces, but a lot of those have been given away since graduation. I have to remind myself that it's okay to try new things! So I went through a nautical, rugby, Ralph Lauren phase! Who cares? I will always love j.crew, too.
Head on over to Pinterest to check out my boards! My favorites right now are: style, at home, and nom + nosh.
