"Surprise!" I popped up, waving my arms about as Ivy gasped.
"Wow, I can't believe it! I've been wanting these for so long!" Ivy gazed down at the small metal trinkets, light bouncing of of them. "Thank you, Kaya. I really appreciate this."
"You're welcome," I said. "Anything for my best friend!"

Hello, all! Today I plan on discussing one of my favorite topics: travel! Traveling is a great way to introduce yourself to new cultures and their customs, something I think is very important. When my photographer took my sister Kaya and I to China, we got to try new foods, see new things, and learn more about my heritage. I think it's incredibly important to be aware and respectful of all cultures and people in this world, and traveling is a great way to achieve this. Kaya and I may not have enjoyed every food we tasted, or thought every piece of art we saw was beautiful, but we were still respectful, and that's what's important.
Like travel, I wanted this outfit to be fun, but at the same time safe and comfortable. Whether I'm trekking through the Amazonian rainforest or shopping through 5th Avenue, I want to have an exciting experience. At the same time, I don't want to get bitten by a piranha or run over by a taxi. That would be bad. This outfit looks fun with all the bright colors and sparkles, but is also. "safe". In this fashion world, I hope it inspires you to create a travel outfit of your own!

I adore the ruffles on this skirt, they give my outfit a little extra sparkle. As said before, this ensemble was inspired by springtime, but more specifically, flowers. Let me explain. The boots, which are a light, earthy, brown color, are the roots. The skirt is the stem, and my favorite part, this trim, is like leaves. The shirt, vest, and necklace (which conveniently has a flower on it) are the bloom, the most beautiful part of the flower.
Modeling outfits after real objects, like I did here, not only ensures a aesthetically pleasing look, but it's also loads of fun!
Experiment with these examples:
Bird Pencil Tree
Beak-Orange headband Graphite-Gray scarf Leaves-Green shirt
Body-Blue shirt Wooden Tip-Tan shirt Trunk-Brown pants
Wings-Black pants Body- Yellow Pants Roots-Black boots
Feet-Orange shoes Eraser-Pink shoes Birds/flowers-colorful bracelets
Try an outfit like this at home: Go ahead--experiment with color blocking in your next outfit! I recommend looking at a color wheel beforehand. This way, you'll know which colors look great together. Also, be aware of your surroundings. Inspiration comes from everywhere, so take a look around--you might just spot your next outfit!
