journeys.

vintage coat and belt; h&m sweater (old), scarf (old) and hat; forever 21 skirt (old - similar here and here); 
target tights; zara bag; michael kors watch; vintage boots. 

my girly days are the more fun. skipping around the neighborhood in a swingy floral skirt, so many layers that i can barely feel the cold, and not a care in the world. topshop is selling an identical pair for $130+, but i picked up these boots for less than i paid for my strawberry milkshake at brunch - the best. fashion is cyclical and this goes to show that with a little hunting, you can find vintage classics that look exactly like what's currently in high street shops. i toned down the feminine skirt with an androgynous peacoat, another favorite find that was last worn here.

many thoughts come to mind as i write this post, but one thing that is sticking out most to me is something i've taught myself: act without expectation and let go of the outcome. it really is all about the journey and not the destination. and love yourself fearlessly.

This quote just came at the right time today- feeling a little overwhelmed with work. Sometimes you forget to actually "live"

Love the ease of how all the pieces in this outfit fit together! and nice score on those vintage booties - I've been trying to find some leather ones about that height. They look great!
