imperfect idealist is blog dedicated to mindful and active living. My goal is to write helpful guides based on my personal experience and research.

Hello, friends! I’m Lily, a 25-year-old lost and confused recent college grad. I went to school at Amherst College, a small liberal arts school Massachusetts, where I studied math and French. I’m currently based in Boston, where I work remotely for a startup. In my spare time, I train for endurance races, cook plant-based food, and write for this blog.

Imperfect Idealist began as a fashion blog in 2010, where I would share my most outlandish outfits (shorts over skinny jeans, anyone?). It’s since become a space for sustainable fashion literacy, race recaps, travel guides, and everything in between.

So browse about, and let’s be friends.
