about me:

Aloha and welcome to my blog, a place where I talk about my love of fashion and the “Without Rules” lifestyle. I am half Korean and half Finnish, born with one foot in Korea and the other in Finland. (metaphorically speaking of course) I am a self proclaimed fashion and makeup junkie who also happens to have a deep-seeded love of all things related to horses, the ocean, surfing, paddle boarding, and skateboarding. While growing up, I was very self-conscious about my appearance because of my mixed ethnicity.  I wanted to fit in and look like my peers. With that being said, it has taken me many years to embrace the woman I am today.

“Dayna Without Rules” is a mindset as well as a style philosophy. It is about taking current rules that guide fashion and tossing them aside to define your individual style. Pablo Picasso once said, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” He may have been speaking of art, however, this statement can be equally applied to fashion. Fashion is art. The female form is art. My philosophy is simple….define yourself by being yourself. Wear what makes you feel confident regardless of whether it is on-trend or not; however, don’t be afraid to be adventurous and try new things. Fashion may be predicated on certain guidelines, but style is conceived from creativity and thinking outside the box. To varying degrees, we all have a creative and artistic side, so take advantage of it to curate your personal style canvas everyday. Thank you for visiting my site and happy reading. Now, let’s throw the rule book away!!

Much love, Dayna xoxo
