In a flash, meaning, I woke up way too late to go to church and so it was zoom, zoom, zoom...whatever goes. I don't think Jesus would mind much what we wear right? Hence, this is the outfit of the day...something unplanned yet put together. I think a black blazer would always look put together, as do tiny gold jewelry and black flats and a bag. Of course fun culottes and a peplum top are always welcome too.

Life is moving too fast, and to tell you the truth it's terrifying. I remember being a more devil-may-care, spontaneous person once upon a time, but things are different now. Now, I feel safe in the knowledge that I have a plan. Yes, I know that life will always have those sharp 180 degree turn (flash wedding, anyone?) and that it's nothing to fear, but how about those things I know I have to change because it's not right for me anymore, but I know that doing so might put me in a less-than-safe position? Don't understand? Well, let me let you in on a little something I've been thinking for a long time - I'm quitting my current job, and I have no safety net to fall back on. No one forced me, and it will be a mostly amicable separation, but it does mean that I would lose my resources - for how long I don't know, and it's terrifying. So much so that I still doubt about it, yet in my heart I know I should do it. I know if I don't, it will be a sort of personal failure, even if I do become financially secure for another few months. Sigh...difficult, I know.

Anyways, in happier news, we had a great day when I wore this, went out to have a large Portuguese lunch at Miramar, which is somewhere I've always wanted to try, and then went on a shopping spree with my family. A great day, in my honest opinion.

So I'll see you soon?

  1. I am a planner all the way. I think it's easier that way, but it can also make you insane when something happens that is not "in the plan". I love this combo of the floral shorts, peplum top and blazer!

  2. You look amazing. I love the shorts.
    I'm a planner but I plan for all possibilities including the worse but tend to live as it goes. I panic about hard times but still run towards them (such as starting uni with no finance). Everything works out eventually
