The Not-So Plain Amelia Jane

I believe in the smell of rain & the taste of PB&J. I believe in the thrill of closing my eyes at the tip-top of the ferris wheel.  I believe in the glitter of sea foam, the sound of cracking crème brûlée, the touch of a kitten’s whiskers. I believe in rainbow sprinkles, & that you’re never too old to ride in the shopping cart. I believe in red lipstick. I believe in the impossible human journey, the web of souls, & that flowers have feelings too. I believe in love at first sight & lust at first whisper. I believe in the sound of hands, pressed against chests, beating for eachother. I believe in touching everyone’s heart. I believe in changing peoples’ minds. I believe in the feel of hands, through hair, wind through loose clothes, & water on my lips. I believe in beach hair. I believe in bows, ribbons, glitter & tons of frosting. I believe in ice cream sundays. I believe in the loss of inhibitions, the power of confidence, & the conquering of self doubt. I believe in words like “sweetheart”, “mushy”, & “freckled”, I believe in phrases like “doe-eyed”, “charmed”, & “I adore you”. I believe in polka-spots. I believe in glittery nail polish & yellow tights. I believe in pancakes for dinner & candid photos. I believe in dressing well to go to bed & dreaming big city dreams. I believe in the chai tea. I believe in kisses on the cheek & hugs with two hands. I believe in the earth between my toes & sand in my hair. I believe in the colors I hear, the sounds I taste & the lights that warm my heart. I believe in the little things in life.

I believe in love, above all else.

I believe our generation can will change the world.

I love fashion & being able to express myself though it. It seems as though I can’t pick which life to lead; the adventurer, the homebody, the quiet book worm or the charismatic loud mouth? Quite frankly, I’m whirlwind of colorful frocks, basic patterns, classic staples & wild trends.  I adore trying new things, I relish my careful basics & I’m obsessed with crazy statement pieces. I adore my cat, Crème brûlée more than words can say. I love to write & take photos, & of course, blog about my adorable life, my beautiful friends & my wonderful family.
The goal of this blog is simply this: To show you how to be yourself in hundreds of different styles.
Who says you can’t wear pretty dresses with combat boots? 
Who says you cant be vintage & retro?
Who says you cant be classic & wild?
Who labels your sense of style?
Who told you that you had to fit into a category?
Why be careful when you can be colorful?
Why hide yourself when you can shine.
