“KaylaCore… who is Kayla at her core? Well first, I am a pickle lover. That’s probably not what I should start with, but it wouldn't feel right explaining the essence of who I am without mentioning my love for dill right upfront. Anyways, I could tell you about the soft and neutral tones I’m drawn to like warm beiges and browns and pinks. I could tell you about how much I appreciate a good corinthian ornamentation or a detailed woven pattern and how I think my style is quite natural yet eclectic. But more than a visual aesthetic, my core is how I approach things. I value authenticity, empathy, and experiences, and I’m not afraid to speak my mind or to be bold. Rather I enjoy it! I love things that are complex, yet seem effortless, like stars and perfect glowy skin. Like how does that even work? Overall, my core is modern, but classic and deeply inspired by genuine interaction”.
