Cleanse

I'm cleansing my fashion palate. I'm so the girl who piles on every accessory to an outfit and still that isn't enough. The idea "less is more", is not normally how I would describe my style but I think my fashion sense is maturing and changing. I'm in love with sleek, modern clothing styled very minimally. It makes me look for stronger pieces of clothing.

This nude croplette (is that a thing??) called to me as soon as I stepped into City Chic. I'm loving nude as an alternative to black. This whole outfit is from City Chic, shout out to them for quality and fit.

Effortless

SO let's be real, life can get hard, like really hard. It can be like swimming upstream and that's exhausting. I believe that, the overwhelmed feeling is a sign. A sign that you're trying to force something that isn't supposed to happen. I have stayed in MANY a situation, friendships, jobs, relationships, etc. trying to make it work but just ended up feeling like I was working too hard. That is never worth it. I think the key is to listen to that voice and like Elsa, let that shit GO. Nothing should be that hard. Love shouldn't be that hard. Keeping a friendship shouldn't be that hard. Everything doesn't have to be so hard. This is something I learned many times over, that if it isn't effortless it might not be the right thing. You may think that this is the person you NEED to be with, or you NEED this job but trust if it's not meant for you, it's not meant for you. I feel like I wasted a lot of time trying to, metaphorically, fit a square peg into a circle hole in my life. I got tired. I got tired of fighting the current life was pushing me in. Once I surrendered to whatever experience I was in and trusted in myself, new opportunities opened up. My dreams became bigger and the doors that closed on me looked tiny next to the windows that were opened for me. Things started to feel right and more importantly things started to feel effortless
