Hi, friends!

Welcome to Imperfectly Erin, a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blog. My name is Erin Dawn Waller, I’m 21 years old, and I live in Williamsburg, Virginia. I’m a girl who believes an ordinary life can be extraordinary, there is beauty in imperfection, and that magic can be found in the everyday.

I’ve always enjoyed experimenting with the latest makeup trends, with looks ranging from simple and bringing out our natural beauty to glamming it up for a special date night.

I’d like to think my style is a mixture of Parisian, bohemian, and minimalistic, and you can almost always guarantee I’m wearing a dress– they are my absolute favorite fashion staple.

Right now I’m a nursing student pursuing a BSN degree. I love animals, which brought me to becoming vegan. I’ve grown up with two potbelly pigs, four dogs, a cat, and two birds. My own fur baby’s name is Bugsy– he’s a little Miniature Pinscher and Chihuahua mix puppy. I bring him with me everywhere I go. I am obsessed with musicals from every era, and many songs from them I like to play on piano. I also listen to indie artists like Bon Iver, Hozier, The Neighborhood, and Vance Joy. My favorite ways to relax are through walking in nature, meditation, a glass of rosé, and shopping. All of those have something in common– getting lost in my happy place.

A term I like is “jolie laide” which is French for “beautiful ugly”. It represents seeing beauty where others may miss it. I find most of the time our unexpected events in life turn out to be the most memorable. You’ll get a glimpse of my life through my blog, and I look forward to getting to know you! I love reading the comments– I’m open to stories, suggestions, and ideas. Here’s to expressing ourselves through beauty and fashion, immersing ourselves in environments that help us flourish, and living our perfectly imperfect lives.

Cheers, Erin
