Just a year ago I was having one of the most stressful moments of my life. Trying to finish all the assignments in university and closing the door to that chapter of my life. Just a year. I still don't know how so much can happen in one year, and yet feel like nothing much is going on in your daily life. But maybe I'm just fooling myself. I actually feel so overwhelmed lately. By everything. Pressure at work, pressure to not neglect my blog because it's what makes me happy. Then all the chores, and many other little things get in the way and leave me exhausted to the point of where I catch myself praying I don't break down. And you know when that happens you need to reevaluate your life choices. I feel like I just need to get away for a little bit to gather my thoughts, to get back my energy. It won't take just a few good night's sleeps, it needs a lot more than that to go away. Or will it ever go away? I feel like I really need to get in tune with my mind and body, because it all feels too much right now. It wasn't like that one year ago.

I used to spend hours writing essays, or working on projects, dreaming of working on my blog more to get to a stage where it is now, to have a fun personal life living in a more exciting place. All of those things happened and I couldn't feel more grateful, yet my mind is still in the wrong place. It's not able to process all the craziness around, and just needs a little break somewhere peaceful. Speaking of which, I have a two-week vacation coming up in May, any suggestions where I should go? Doesn't matter where, I will consider anything so long as I could come back relaxed from that place. So if you do have any suggestions I would be grateful if you shared. And now to get back to the photos over here, I somehow felt like channeling a little Carrie Bradshaw with this outfit. I won't lie, I am not very good at coming up with outfits for blog posts and I find it hard most of the time (the irony of someone who does it as a hobby and works in retail too). This time I chose a second hand blazer that I've kept in my closet for way too long, a shirt gifted by my mom years ago, ripped jeans from UnJean and some pointed toe lace up sandals. Chic and classy! Let me know what you think of this outfit.

With Love,

  1. Bri,

    I love this outfit but I love your honest thoughts even more. I think life does eventually calm down. Unfortunately, for me and many others I knew, it was a rollercoaster all throughout the twenties decade. I remember thinking so many times how I wish it would all calm down and that I could just survive this thing and the next without having a breakdown. The older you get, the less frequently the ups and downs seem to come and go, so you get more time to enjoy calm seas. :-)


    1. Ohh Aimee thank you so much for these uplifting words! I do hope that it gets better with time. I love peacefulness, but then I get bored so I think it's all about that balance, which I'm struggling to find at the moment. That was a very very beautiful comment, thank you again! Sending you a big hug
