Look Up

As a full-time fashion blogger and social media addict I find that I am always gazing into a screen…my laptop, my iPhone or iPad…and sometimes even all three. 
When I heard about the smartwater Instagram Challenge “look up” I knew I had to try it!
  smartwater promotes technology breaks throughout the day and that is something I have been trying to incorporate into my daily life. 
Taking mini breaks away from a screen to just look up into the sky and disconnect myself. 
I put away my phone on a weekend walk and when I looked up I saw a group of colorful balloons floating in the California blue sky.
 It reminded me of my carefree childhood days filled with laughter and play. 
I decided to take inspiration from those balloons and create a fun, playful outfit very similar to those I wore as a little girl. 
Pink baby doll dresses were my daily outfits no matter what I was doing! 
I stumbled upon this H&M dress which is an adult version of those I used to wear. 
Paired it with simple accessories and nude sandals for a fun night out…without my phone. 
Disconnecting myself and taking the moment to look up made me feel free and reminded me of the days when cell phones were non-existent. 
It inspired me to observe my beautiful surroundings and reminded me to always keep the kid in me alive.
