“She doesn’t wear fur because she is cold, she wears fur because she is glamorous.”
Like my New Years, this outfit is pretty busy! I decided I wanted to put all they style elements I’m digging right now into one look.
However, unlike putting everything into this outfit, I wouldn’t try putting
EVERYTHING into your life!
For me, 2017 is going to be all about saying NO.
Hear me out, life can be so full of everything and anything that it can be #HARD to manage it all and keep your sanity at the same time. So I’m not going to. I’m done with feeling like I always have to do everything. I will not constantly overextend myself, or say yes because I feel I must.
I’m going to spend this year learning what is really important and what does not hold any value in my life.
This outfit might mix camo, paisley, fur and bell sleeves as my favourite style features, but my life is going to hold #GOD, #FAMILY and #GENUINEFRIENDS (you know what I’m talking about….); I’m letting go of:
Societal pressure: With the advent of social media (especially with being a #BLOGGER), there is soooo much pressure from society to make every aspect of your life perfect. I don’t want to spend 2017 pretending mine is!
Pressure of tradition: I do things far to often because that’s how I always have or my family always has. Yes, at times this can be good, at other points, it’s time to throw that shawl off and forge your own path.
Gender pressures: Let’s be honest, as #WOMEN we are expected to do it all and handle it all. I don’t need to do twice as much as any man to show I’m just as good, and I won’t.
Kisses to each of you and to 2017! Let’s get this year started right, so we can finish it even stronger.
