Lainey's Five Words: DREAM

Photography / Makeup: Madison Dizon

DREAM: Some might say that dreamers are foolish, but I believe that those that dare to dream are the ones that end up changing this world.

I was inspired to do this new series because of the motto that I came up with initially with my blog:

Be What You Want, Wear What You Want

I created this motto because I wanted to spread a message that you should always do whatever it is that makes you happy—whether that's a career path you want to take…or the endless amounts of rainbows and unicorns you want to incorporate into your #OOTDS. 

I went to UCLA for college, studying medicine on top of taking the LSAT to go to law school, doing it all because that’s what I thought I had to do….not because I wanted to. I went through a lot to try to find out who I was and what I wanted to do with my future until one day I finally decided for myself that I was going to head on an unguaranteed path that was against what was expected of me because I wanted to do something that was going to make ME happy. It all then led me to starting this blog where I wanted to become an example for others that you should and CAN do whatever it is that you want-- which in my case now meant becoming a redheaded-unicorn-rainbow-loving-blogger .

So in honor of that original message, I wanted to create a series that would illustrate that. In these next few weeks I'm going to be revealing the 5 words that I live by that inspire me on the daily (and hopefully will inspire you!) to never give up or be afraid to do and go after the things you believe in & love.
