Hey guys! I cannot believe it’s already Wednesday, I’m not complaining as I am feeling extra tired this week. But it’s mostly due to lack of sleep and stretching myself too thin. Over the past weekend, I was spending time with one of my dearest friend and she reminded me how lucky we were. The majority of my friends have great careers, some are married to the love of their lives and wait for it, many of them have both. This made me think that I need to take a step back and be more appreciative of the life I have. I know I’ve worked really hard, but none the less I am blessed with health and the drive to accomplish my goals. So basically today if you are feeling down, or you’re complaining about not being able to buy those cute shoes (wink wink) remember to be appreciative for your family, friends, health and overall your blessings, as this is the real source of happiness.
Now about this outfit, I got this skirt about a year ago but I was a little too tight and I never bothered returning it. Thankfully it fits now and I was so happy to see this style back during the J.Crew NYFW presentation. Now this is one event I would have loved to attend as I am a huuuuuge J.Crew fan.
Did you shop the Shopbop sale? If yes what did you get? I am seriously interested in knowing as I am nosy as hell. If you are nosy too, this is what I ordered (this, this and this). I hope they are all keepers.
