Trust the Journey

Hi lovelies! Yay its almost the weekend and I’m looking forward to having brunch at Bill’s on Saturday with myself. However, looking at the menu, I can’t quite figure out if I’d have an Eggs Benedict or Blueberry buttermilk pancakes topped with bananas and strawberries. Decisions, decisions!

Whilst I may have made your tummy rumble, let’s talk about my outfit. I picked this shirt up at the Zara sale and its one of those shirts that look so easy to style but its been the complete opposite. I tried tucking it into high waisted jeans, leaving it out and wearing a belt over it to create a peplum effect but nothing worked due to the structure. I literally had 5 minutes to change into this look and I just thew on a pair of culottes and tucked the shirt in halfway. I really liked the outcome mainly because of how unplanned it was. I mean sometimes, we just overthink things.. outfits, life, our futures etc. I’ve reached a point where I’m trusting and enjoying the journey because I can never be 23 on the 19th of January again. Trusting God, staying focused and working hard, I’m not walking around life with a heavy chip on my shoulder anymore and it just feels so good.

Well, that mini rant was rather unexpected! I hope you like this look and do have a fabulous weekend

Alex

  6. Gorgeous combo! I tend to stick to dresses when I’m in a hurry for this precise reason – trying to get the right shape/structure of blouses with bottoms. Looks great on you πŸ™‚
