Idaho lifestyle photographer, Heather James, calls her style “Dork-Chic”. It’s quirky, but easy-going; Full of bold and happy patterns, but with toned down, depthy Fall colors that she considers to be super peaceful.
“Where is far, far away and how do I get there?” Adventure fuels my soul, but i’ve felt incredibly stuck. I MUST maintain inner peace as the first step in any new adventure. This peaceful and adventurous outfit embodies these things.
I felt inspired to bring how i was feeling onto paper in the form of conceptual fashion sketches.
I thought i’d share them with you for two reasons:
1. To give hope that you’re not alone and that others understand what you’re going through.
2. To shed light on what mental health issues feel like–anxiety in particular–and hopefully bring in some more understanding and sympathy.
