Hello there, and thanks for swinging by! I’m happy you’re here and flattered you want to know more about my blog.
I started Imperfect Idealist as a wee little middle schooler who wore way too many colors and layers (see this instagram post for reference). Back then, the blog was actually called “A Burst of Color,” and I mainly posted outfit shots.
In high school, I started sharing more personal stories in my posts (crush stories and all LOL), and changed my blog title to Imperfect Idealist. The blog has followed me ever since, through college in Western Mass, study abroad in Bordeaux and Oxford, my post-grad teaching fellowship in Dijon, and now my life as a working adult.
Imperfect Idealist has never really been a niche blog (the blog strategists would gasp!). I’ll post about anything from dumpster diving to embarrassing travel stories. It’s really a synthesis of my latest adventures and what I took away from them. What you’ll see most often are sustainability tips, active travel guides, and race and running gear reviews.
Below, I’ve compiled some of my favorite posts, organized by category—take a gander and feel free to follow along!
