Today’s challenge is to channel someone. Kayla said it could be anyone, whether or not they are famous, and I almost immediately settled on my dear friend Bethany.
She’s a blog friend turned real friend (we overlapped in Boston by about six months) and I am awe of her in practically every way. She is truly one of the kindest people I know, she and her husband are the most darling couple you could know, she kept inviting me over for dinner when Bart was out of town, and she, Casey, and Noah were always ready to join Bart and me on some Boston adventure (now that I have a child, I am amazed by how good they were at taking him around with them). She takes the most beauitful photographs.
Oh, and she has amazing style. She lent me a ton of clothing when I was pregnant and it was sad how much better her PREGNANCY clothes were than my regular clothing. Every time I saw her in real life and now (because we live far apart) when I see her on her blog, I think “I need her to get me dressed. And also buy all my clothing.”
Which is why, when I saw this shirt at Forever 21, I bought it. Because it looked like something Bethany would wear.
When I think of Bethany’s style, I think stripes, plaid, small prints, drape-y sweaters, and pink, pink, pink. And she also always dresses in a way that makes you think she just threw things on and just happens to look fabulous, not that she spent a ton of time making herself so lovely. She dresses like a real person, like a mom who snuggles her cute babies (including her 10 week-premie daughter) on the couch, and a friend who laughs at your not very funny jokes.
I love Bethany.
