As those who know me can attest, I have quite an issue with authority, I may have mentioned it before… Let me explain, it's not because I can't respect someone in a position above me, but in the way that I don't like anyone to feel like they have to be confined or put in a box. Total art school hippie mentality. I like to stand up for the little guy… I don't like people to be judged solely on their outward appearance, and I LOVE when folks do a little something unexpected! Especially when it comes to their wardrobe! I like to think of my style as a weido, chic, boho, casual rocker, so on the days when I want to dress like my name is Arabella and I'm going to brunch with my fundraising committee ladies, I do it and I enjoy it!!! Fashion is meant to be fun, so have fun! I love a good pencil skirt and paired with the silk top, we have a sweet respectable little look. I can't do anything without a little flare, so add some leopard print booties and you are good to go.

Oh and come on, how freaking adorable is Franklin the dog!? I mean, COME. ON. Perfection.

So tell me, tell me. Do you have a fashion alter ego?

As you will soon see, Blissful Happenings loves a good hippie moment. I just can't help myself. The older I get the more and more of a hippie I become. Not sure what that's all about but this SoCal air probably has something to do with it. It's all the sun. Totally fries your brain. This look was one of my favorites from a recent shoot with my most favoritest Tatum. Because sometimes you just need to frolic around the forest braless with a flower crown. If you want your own little bit of backless fairy fun, I'm more than a little obsessed with this on here. And get excited, there's a DIY post in the works... Soon you can make your own flipping flower crown for a fraction of the cost of your Coachella ticket!
