Juxtaposition: Styling Striped Trousers

I'm keeping it short and sweet today because I need to rest. It's been super non-stop since I came back from Florida. I'm not complaining though, because I've loved every minute of it!

The thing I love most about these photos is the juxtaposition. I love it when things are slightly off, slightly out of place, unexpected.  There's something so intriguing about juxtaposition, don't you think? Whether it's a summer in the city glamorous outfit down in the country or whether it's juxtaposition in your personality. 

It's so interesting how people will often pigeon-hole you as one type of person. The most magical thing about being a human being is that you have the opportunity to be a multi-faceted individual, so it's funny when people see one side of you and think they have you figured out. I truly believe you can be anything you want to be. You're not and should not be defined by one single aspect of your personality. I mean it's possible for one to be both hard and soft, wild and reserved; it's possible to be a fan of both documentaries and awful reality tv.

So maybe we should take the time to get to know people, really soak up the many magical aspects of an individual and stop trying to pigeon-hole people?
