What I Wore: Can't Slow Down

What I Wore: Shirt (American Eagle), Pants (American Eagle), Sweater (American Eagle; Similar Here), Clutch (Popbasic), Boots (Crown Vintage), Necklace (Similar Here), Belt (Similar Here), Scarf (Similar Here)

It seems an age since my last outfit post. But things just won't seem to slow down. Part of it was the flu (don't worry; my germs couldn't get at you through the screen, even if I wasn't finally cured). But a lot of it is work. I mean, I love my work and I could (and do Just ask The Boy) talk about my work. All. Day. Long. It makes sense because, hey, you're at work all day long, and then when I come home.... well, my classes get to make robots and mummies and cool stuff like that (and learn. Obviously. We don't do anything for "just because," but learning is cool). But.... it is still only one topic.

Here's the thing though. For awhile, it seemed like everyone's lives changed at such a rapid pace. For a few years it was about college with new classes every semester, and moving, and job hunts and relationships. Things do still change and new adventures pop up now too. It is just at a different pace. Though I feel like things won't slow down (in work, anyway), things don't- and don't need to- change in our lives at a such a fast pace now. For any armchair phycologists out there, you probably know this is because I and most of  my similarly aged friends are shifting gears as we move from one of Erikson's stages of development to the next... an odd, but content situation. Let's generate, not stagnate!

 And, for all the rest of you to whom that sounded like psychobabble, don't worry. It's just a long-winded way to say "I haven't got much to say."  Anyone else like to see how you fit into the world through psychology theories? Do tell!

  1. Love the sweater! What a cozy way to transition into spring. It is interesting how the pace of life changes as we get older :)

  4. Great outfit - love the color of your top. <3 I'm also loving your hair - very chic!

    I'm glad we both got through the flu - it definitely can put a stop to things for a while!

  5. I'm still very much in the stage where everything's changing- I want to be in the spot where it all slows down! I'd love to have my career and home established so I can focus on other things, it's very stressful :/ But onto happier and lighter topics- I love that sweater on you! It's so different from your usual style, but fits you to a tee. Very pretty :)

  6. Oh that sweaterrrrrr, YUM! I am in a spot much like this myself. I realize that because whenever someone asks me what's new, I'm all "...just working. You know." Totally at a different pace. I don't hate it! Happy Thursday!!

  7. Oh my gosh yes! I can relate. My job just keeps me so busy and on the weekend I just want to slow down. It's funny reading your thoughts now as I just started writing something yesterday for my blog (which I haven't done in a while) about my need to move at a slower pace, especially when everything around us seems to move so fast these days. In terms of personal development though, I sometimes miss the excitement of that time when everything was changing quickly. But then remember how stressful uncertainty could be and think I much prefer how some things have stabilized (relationships, work life). I feel more free now to evolve in different ways. I still prefer if I can do so in my own sweet time :)
