seersucker trousers: lux
silk scarf: great grandmother's
a few days ago i read a quote in a heartbreaking work of staggering genius that i thought was incredibly relevant to the way i have been feeling of late. a character in the novel says, "Every day we start with a fresh world--or, better yet, each day we start with this world, the one we know, and by nine, ten a.m., we've destroyed it." lately i wake up feeling positive and ready to take on my 'fresh world' and by early afternoon my spirits are broken by one thing or another. after reading this i found myself more aware of how i was letting the attitudes and words of others change the way i feel about myself and my world. so my new goal is to stay in my own little bubble. does this all sound really silly? probably. but i am okay with that because it has really been working. a positive mindset really does overpower the negativity of the world around you. just a hint.
onto more relevant things like my outfit today. after i mentioned that i felt very preppy yesterday i was reminded of, quite possibly, my preppiest piece of clothing; these seersucker wide-legged trousers. i felt ready to jump on a sail boat and float off into the harbor. i wanted to add a feminine touch, and thought this basic black tee with ruffled shoulders was a great compliment to the pants. this silk scarf was my great grandmothers and i am enamored with the pattern and the colors. who knew lime green was being worn way back in the day?
sorry if i went off on a tangent. i just want everyone to be reminded how important it is to surround yourself with positive people. i am so thankful to have amazing friends, family and the best boyfriend in the whole world. so thanks guys.
