A Taurus And Pinky Promises

August 31, 2016

words from our newest team member

Ellie Hoge

I am an introvert, a Taurus. My aesthetics include: rainy days, oversized sweatshirts, neon purple signs, the stars and moon, fresh linens, fall turning into winter, pinky promises, and long car rides with the windows rolled down and the music blaring. I thrive off the feeling of laughing so hard you can’t breathe and the pain in your cheeks after smiling too much. I am happy around the people I love, when I discover new music, when I binge watch TV shows and movies.

Something I recently discovered about myself is that I need to take more chances and step outside my comfort zone. I crave a life that I know I will not be able to have because of it. I want to go on more adventures, surround myself with good energy, connect with new people, learn new things, and continue to grow. I love the sense of knowing what can be accomplished when I give myself the power of being in my element, loving life and loving myself.

Fashion holds a place in the life that I crave, a niche I have always had. The textures, colors, patterns, and fabrics help me create and express my style of feelings, thoughts, aspirations, and interests. Nothing gets me more excited than arranging articles of clothing together.  

As for my personal style I am drawn to bohemian, retro, and vintage pieces. I feel most comfortable in loose, flowy tees. I fancy anything high waisted or bottoms that have skinny ankles, but more recently denim and corduroy skirts have become my new obsession. Although no one can go wrong with a simple necklace, my favorite accessory are earrings, especially when I throw my hair up and add bold earrings which make a statement. Although I have never been a fanatic over shoes, Converse and Keds have always been my go-to. However lately, my boot collection has been growing in numbers. 

I am thankful for the past challenging few months that have pushed me to new heights and allowed me to find my true self. I am hoping that this new chapter brings more wanderlust, more adventure, more memories, more accomplishments, more laughter, more breaking open, more lessons learned, and more love.

As I turn to a fresh page in my story, I am thrilled to have an opportunity to intern with a company that inspires me to seek my creativity, adventures, dreams and home. I am ecstatic to be a part of the Homesick team!
