While living in Massachusetts, I was inspired to create a brand that brought together mindful moments, minimalist style, and the beauty of everyday life.
After returning from a magical trip back to my second home, New York City, I spotted a pair of angel wings painted along The Coop in Harvard Square. I knew the story I was writing for myself wasn’t authentic- and this piece of street art gave me the confidence to leave a career that was crushing my spirit.
I bought a blank sketchbook and began to paint inspirational words, design clothing, and come up with ideas to make old things new.
Now back in my hometown of Traverse City, Michigan, I’ve picked the sketchbook back up and started leaving rocks with inspirational messages around town. Through bringing together my writing, art, and photography, Miss 1984 was born- and there’s a little Miss (The Mindful in Style Shop) in all of us.
I hope to inspire others to pause, look within, and enjoy the beautiful moments all around them.
Hooray for PAIGE helping to keep the community stylish and safe!
In an effort to preserve supplies for medical staff, Paige Denim joined LA Protects and Mayor Eric Garcetti to produce non-medical masks in their to help protect non-essential workers. They’re also donating a pack for every 4-pack sold! Whenever I shop these days, I’m always conscious of the social good the company is doing- and want to be sure others know, too.
You can shop the Paige masks here, and check out 91 more stylish selections from Vogue for this “new normal.”
I’ve loved seeing how designers, brands, and social media teams have helped bring people together during this time. From music to inspirational talks, it’s been amazing to see how creative the world has been!
