When re-writing the focus of my blog, I sat down to many blank sheets of paper with no real idea of how to make all my funny ideas come to life. That’s the thing with being inside my own head – I visualize these pretty cool things, but before you know it, I’m off running in the yard with Olive or picking things in the garden before I can make any real plan of action. So those many sheets of paper? Let’s just say I wasn’t being exactly environmentally friendly with my doodles that day (sorry, tree)…
While this “wellness is stylish” thing is totally new for Style Activist, it’s 100% real and true to my everyday life. What you see is what you get, dudes. What I’m sharing here is all stuff I actually do, and I may even tell you weird details that might make us all a little uncomfortable at times (though mostly not, I hope). My life is not really glamourous at all. I’m usually found shaking off my Sorel boots, covered in mud, after another trek with Olive. I wear my Converse to Trader Joe’s. I eat and drink a lot of kale (duh). I wear Nike’s much more than pumps. And I’d rather be biking around the country than shopping at a mall. But I totally feel like there’s real style in all of that: in being yourself and letting it shine. Plus, kale is like the new trendy food apparently or something.. sorry ’bout your luck, Romaine.
The bottom line is that these style posts are now more than just about what I’m wearing, but more about how I attempt to live a happier, healthier life. Because in the end, that’s what really matters, right? There’s nothing more stylish than making awesome happen everyday, whether it involves kale (though it really should), biking (that too), Karl Lagerfeld (meh), or all of the above. Um, but sorry InStyle, if we feel amazing and rock a post green juice glow all day long, we’re best dressed in my book.
I love this internet space, with you, because we can talk about what we love, what we don’t love, what our favorite foods are, when our bloating gets rough, and everything in between. It’s like having lunch with friends except we’re just a few towns away.. maybe?
