Every September is the beginning of a new chapter (New Years resolutions are overrated). New season, new style, new projects, new focus and new routines. Only several months ago I began a fresh journey and it has been an incredible awakening for the soul and so thankful for every moment; Challenges, opportunities and discoveries.
The most important thing that I have learned is this: Take every opportunity that comes your way. Simple, right? Well, it has a higher impact than you think. When you embrace this, not only do you prevent the question “What if?” but the possibilities that come from it are exciting. If the outcome is negative, turn it into a positive by learning from it, there is no time like the present to learn what you are capable of or what you are surrounded by. Create your own opportunities.
Having several goals and dreams to conquer in this life, I am enjoying it day by day, but I work hard. Dedication, commitment, persistency, focus and confidence are only a few traits you need to own. Often I hear that I am doing too much at once or that some goals are too difficult to achieve, but my determination does not give me the option to give up. I will continue to work hard to get to where I want to be.
Always stand for what you believe in, sometimes that means you have to stand alone.
Next week I begin a new route in this awesome journey when I begin school full time to pursue my passion! No words can explain my excitement. With being a full time student, it’s going to be next to impossible to shop… I know, first world problems, right? However, I am looking forward to the challenge of experimenting and coming up with new looks with what I have already. With that said, stay tuned to see what I come up with! These outfits will be under a new category, which will be announced next week.
Now lets turn our attention to the outfit…
‘Finding Balance’ is fitting for the chosen outfit, this one is my “go-to” right now. Black and white is classic, so crisp and versatile, as said before in previous posts. However, with fashionable-proportions it’s important for the pieces to balance with each other. If one is loose fitting, for example my voluminous top, than another piece should be more structured with fit (my form-fitting leggings), otherwise it looks sloppy.
Being obsessed with these BCBG sandals made my decision for this ensemble effortless, however, they bring the outfit together. For an edgy touch I wore my long ALDO Aztec necklace because the length compliments the longer top and the clutch is a softer touch complimenting the mixed metals and fierce shoes.
