You Belong Among The Wildflowers - Tom Petty

" Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere all bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you .....

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worries
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free "

- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Above is partial lyrics (not in exact order) of "Wildflowers" by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. The lyrics of this song was the inspiration for today's set. I was thinking about the numerous incarnations of fashion, and how varied the definition of style is depending on the individual. It's a concept I wholly embrace and thrive on. Several decades ago style had stricter guidelines, there were no grey areas or blurred lines. If you did not fit into one particular box your style was automatically dismissed. For me, that kind of compartmentalization can be very boring. I do not find any pleasure with everybody looking and dressing the same. If everything looks alike I just stop noticing. That is why I'm loving today's set. It's casual, feminine, rugged, and street. A great and stylish mix for those who dare to step out of the box.

  1. What I like so much about your blog is that you don't just post a lot of images of fashion, but you take inspiration from things such as the lyrics above and make an outfit have a meaning. Now that is true fashion to me.

    1. Thank you Olivia-Savannah! I have an artist eye and a creative spirit. It helps me find inspiration in everything.

  2. The lyrics of that song are beautiful!

    1. A really well written and timeless song.

  3. Ohhh, that floral tee is gorgeous; I'm so into dark florals right now.

    1. I like that floral tee too. It would work well with many outfits, so is a good item to have in your wardrobe...

    2. That floral tee is perfect for a casual look and you can pair it with a skirt to dress it up a bit as well.

  4. That's one of my favorite Tom Petty songs. I think this is my favorite board yet. Love this style!
