"I’m writing poetry now” - wait, what?! I can’t believe this is coming from my mouth. I don’t know the first thing about poetry. And yet, I once said the same thing about fashion. I started blogging because I had no clue how to put outfits together (other than a knack for coupons) but I wanted to learn. And then it became a career and now brands hire me to create outfits - go figure. Life is funny.
These days, I am constantly encouraging people to embrace the “audacity to enjoy yourself” with anything creative, especially fashion. But am I practicing what I preach? Writing poetry and sharing it felt like an opportunity to do just that.
I can’t explain exactly why I’m doing it, other than I’m enjoying it. I’m not sure if I’m doing it correctly, but I figure the best way to learn is to practice. And ultimately, I doubt the poetry police are going to come get me. It’s all so subjective. And I’m not sure I’d disagree with them. 😉
So without further ado, here are a few favorites:
