I was always a pretty fearless kid. I was always the first to test a dangerous theory and I never backed down from a dare, especially a double-dog-dare-you. My curiosity has always been my greatest ally and most formidable opponent. I like asking questions, I like poking around, and I like being open to the world around me.
When you’re willing to wonder freely and not sit idly by, magical things can happen. Many of my most treasured experiences and memories were a direct result of my desire to satisfy my curiosity. We only have this one world, and (as far as I’m aware) we only have this one life – why spend it sitting still?
This month, I’m stoked to partner with Express and provide my life’s mantra as part of their #ExpressLife campaign. So what’s my mantra? Never stop exploring.
Last week, I popped into my local Express store to pick up some of their new performance stretch jeans… I’m obsessed. (Y’all know how hard it is to find pants that fit my waist-to-leg ratio.) This version is the Straight Leg Slim Stretch and they’re essentially heaven.
I paired these jeans with a camouflage shirt-jacket and an amazing suede jacket that I picked up at Express, as well. And yes… these are all pieces you can find in-store right now!
