Flower Fever

Boyish Chic Flower Fever | Road To Here Blog

I totally hippied out for the Kind Proposal film we shot last week. How could I not with these incredible, vibrant flowers?! Their liveliness just makes me break out into a smile, especially with sunflowers in the mix – my favorite flower alongside the poppy.

Sunflowers are just so dang happy with that bright yellow. Fun fact: sunflowers are called tournesol in French which, word for word, means turn toward the sun. How happy is that? They’re little reflections of the sun. These flowers are a perfect reminder on how to live each moment: like a mirror for the sun.

Unexpected Pit Stops: Culture and Koi Fish in Tainan

Biking around Tainan City last week, we happily stumbled upon the colorful, historical Chihkan Tower. Also known as Fort Provintia, Chihkan Tower was once a Dutch outpost. Then, it was destroyed by an earthquake, leaving behind a ghostly glimpse of a staircase in a hidden underground room. This cultural monument has intruiging remnants of aboriginal times and is a worthy short afternoon stop (it’s also supposedly gorgeous at night).

Boyish Chic: Keeping it simple.

Style doesn’t need to be over the top or expensive to be stellar. Often times, the simpler the better (and the more comfortable – bonus!). Because it’s so hard to nail down just right, effortless style is quite unique and refreshing. Here’s some shots from an afternoon of toning it down and biking around in our basics…

New Boyish Chic challenge: How to make the most of a limited wardrobe

Thinking about ideas for Boyish Chic lately, I’ve realized it’s taken on a new spin: Eric and I have been faced with the challenge of looking stellar while living out of a backpack. Sometimes, it’s more difficult than it sounds (like when I get tired of the same things and start to miss the hell out of my closet back home). But, styling a limited wardrobe has also been a fun experiment in making the best out of what little we have and finding out how many different ways we can wear the same thing without looking like we don’t do laundry.

Boyish Chic in Tainan & A Call to Fellow Bloggers

Hello, 2014. Fresh start, new year, and plenty of time for… adventure time! I’m all in. I’m pretty psyched about this year and what’s happening with this blog. I’m really enjoying writing and photographing. I’m also hoping to do a site and logo re-design when my tablet finally comes in.

In the mean time, I’m calling out to my fellow bloggers about guest posts and to artisans or clothing companies. If you’re interested in submitting content for review on the blog, please email me at RoadToHereBlog@gmail.com with your ideas. If you’d like me to style and review a product for the Boyish Chic section (for Eric or me), also please email me! I’d love to talk to you about partnerships.

Enough serious talk, let’s get on with the Boyish Chic of the week:
