What I Wore: Hat (Topshop), Shirt (c/o Sammydress), Jeans (Gap), Shoes (Modcloth), Pearls (Similar Here), Bracelet (Popbasic; Similar Here)
Last week, I ran across this wonderful quote, "There isn't enough room in your mind for both worry and faith. You must choose which will live one there."
Boy, these past few days have been a challenge to that choice. It is a constant choice to let faith be what fills you. In that spirit, I've been trying to really notice and enjoy those things, small as well as large, that make me happy, and not just happy, but happy to be experiencing this life. Silly though it may be, those happy things include this hat (a little crushed on arrival but Solonah gave some good advice on using tea kettles for steaming the hat back into shape), and playing along the beach with puppies. There is just something about a floppy hat that makes you feel a bit more carefree, isn't there?
As for the rest of my outfit, it features a few other newer items to my closet too. The shirt is from Sammydress. I've been looking for a white draped shirt forever, so when they sent this to me, I was excited. And it is lovely, very soft and worked well for this afternoon playing by the water. Sammydress provides many cute items for crazily low prices. Still, you get what you pay for; most of the buttons on this are just for show and I'm sure it will not last beyond the season. So, while I enjoy it for now, the lesson is learned: buy those investment basics as, well, investments.
What about you? What do you do to keep worry out and faith a mindset to live in?
