With the new year upon us and finally having the time to reflect on 2018, I'm ready to start creating new content and reach new lengths in life and my style! I'm not really one for the 'new year, new me' shit (because I'll always be late) but I do believe in setting new intentions.
I’m a bit too hard on myself when it comes to my blog and what I put out there vs what I feel like I ‘should’ be doing. It’s the typical me vs me battle that most of us deal with on the regular. I have to find the beauty in pure creativity again and that means switching things up to discover new routes.
I scare myself into the if it’s not broken, don’t fix it corner and it blinds me from letting my creativity run free. I also find myself still being scared of rejection which then stops me from maybe wearing those boots with that outfit or switching out the loud top for the simpler option.
Wether I get 50 or 5000 likes, I need to love what I’m creating first and foremost! So yes to the animal print mix and matching, yes to the all baby blue outfit on a Tuesday, and a BIG yes to everything and anything I want to wear.
I bought this rad waist belt from Bershka weeks ago and couldn’t quite decide what to wear it with until I picked up these I.AM.GIA pants. I threw it together and it just felt right- ya know the feeling when you put something on, look in the mirror, and just nod in agreement with yourself. I couldn’t help myself when I saw that my thrifted cashmere sweater was the same exact shade of blue either.
The look was already so powerful so it was fate that right before I walked out the door, I remembered what I bought the day before at Nordy Rack. Sitting in my bag was a pair of two tone blue earrings from Madewell! I basically shrieked of happiness when I realized how perfectly these completed my blueberry look. I tossed on all black accessories and an oversized leather jacket to finish the look.
2019 is the year of finally releasing ourselves from these shackles of rules we were taught to live by. We need to remind each other, and mainly ourselves, that mistakes are welcomed. Creative ruts mean beauty is forming and nearby!
Based in New York, NY, this blog is a public display of my deep affection for clothes, home decor, traveling, all food, and beauty. Take a look around and make yourself comfy!
