Hey Merbabe! I'm Dani Mikaela, a Chicago-based ballet dancer with a love for fashion. I recently graduated from the Chicago Academy for the Arts as a dance major. I created Mermaid Waves as a personal style blog, in December 2013 to be an extension of my popular OOTD posts on Instagram. I believe personal style should be empowering and make people feel fabulous, I have never fit in to a mold and I hope to inspire others to dress outside the norm. Fashion has always been in my vocabulary, I changed my outfits numerous times a day as a child, it was not unlikely for me to walk outside in a tutu and boa, with Kanye's confidence level. When I moved back into the city at 14, my love for fashion flourished, I began to feel more comfortable testing out the latest trends from socks and sandals to rose gold hair. I love street style and find inspiration from people walking through the city displaying their own style. I am most likely to be seen with a matcha in one hand and a slice of pizza in the other, all while taking video selfies for snapchat.
