I wanted to throw my military jacket over this and really fall it up today but it's kind of hot this week and while it would make for the cutest outfit, I'm trying to be more present with my thoughts and actions. Wow, I know -- that's quite existential for an outfit post and for it being this early in the morning. But I was talking with a friend the other day about worrying and anxiety and other things that haunt me at night and she gave me solid advice that I can't quite remember in her exact words. In my defense, I'm a terrible listener. But it was something along the lines of being fully present always and being thankful for the moment you are in right now. I usually reserve this type of advice for those moments you truly want to be in -- the good ones, the happy ones, the meaningful ones. I usually want to escape the other moments -- I'm really good at that, too. To be honest my mind is usually somewhere else while my body is trying to do many different things at one time. I don't think to be present in the things I do every day, I just do them like a machine. But what if even in the details, like how I got dressed today, helped me I mean you have to start somewhere right?
I tend to rush seasons with my clothes anyways. I get so excited for the next that I forget the now. So although I have the cutest military jacket from bloom hanging in my closet, it's still warm* here and I'll just have to wait for when it is cool. But for now, I'm happy to be in a tee with an almost excessive amount of necklaces. I have no comment on this heat though.
*I'm being polite. It's not warm, it's effing hot.
