Roc The Life...A New Life

Hello stylistas and stylistos! I know you're probably wondering why isn't this on your other blog? Well, after a lot of thinking, I realized that I have become quite bored with the "Sarah Jane R. Style" lifestyle I was living. I have been going through a lot in my personal life and have realized that I just need to take a deep breath and embrace everything positive in my life. A lot of mistakes and heart-breaking moments have caused me to re-evaluate my purpose with my blogging. I realize now that the most important things in my life that actually made me happy, I didn't blog about. The outfits that I actually wore day-to-day, only got captured on Instagram. Isn't a personal style blog supposed to actually show personal style?

Sitting in my living room, I realized that I was more than just style, and I want to showcase that now. I want people to hear about my personal struggles, my love of food, my weird taste in music...I want to give you an all-access pass into my life, unscripted, raw, and real. So, that is where "The Pursuit of Love in Style" began.

I am in the beginning stages of a relationship that I know in my heart is meant to be but I recently screwed up bad. Needless to say, I have no idea where it will go from here but as I take this very very tiny break from this person (meaning just giving him space to think), I will take this opportunity to work on me. Work on my anger, my health, my finances, everything. By cocooning myself in this way, I hope to emerge a butterfly of personal joy, which in turn I can give to him. Babe, if you're reading this, don't take it the wrong way. This isn't a break up or an ending. This is a pause and a bump in the road that I hope will only make out bond stronger.

What can you expect from this blog? I have no idea. This is literally going to be an open diary into my everyday struggles. I will share my issues and life-learned lessons on love, life, and yes, fashion. You'll get a photographic view into my universe, as well as videos. I'm not a perfect woman. I've made mistakes, and I am opening every wound that has caused me to hide behind so many disguises.

The photo shoot featured here was the third look of a three-part installment I had on my former blog. Samira Regueiro photographed me in an abandoned area in the Wynwood Art District in Miami, FL. These shots truly capture how I am feeling right now: A person who wants everyone to look at her outrageous outfit so they can overlook her flawed ways.

Criticism will come, good and bad. But at the end of the day, this is another step towards my endless pursuit of love...in style.

Peace, Love, and Happiness
