This post was meant for my usual Fashion Friday posts but it just didn't happen. Lately life just seems too difficult to keep up with and I had to stop mid-week and let some things go. Honestly, the week wasn't significantly different from any other except I think it all just kind of caught up to me.
Why do I, and so many women, put so much pressure on myself?
Why do I insist on keeping all the balls in the air at all times?
Why do I feel bad/disappointment/guilty/inadequate when one of the balls finally drops?
Well, I don't really have the answer to these questions, but as I've gotten older two things have happened.
#1 I've come to realize that I have these expectations and feelings.
#2 I have started consciously fighting against these feelings and admitting that I can't keep up all of the time.
That's what I did this week and now I feel a little more balanced going into next week.
Anyway, last week I wore a few of my favorite fall/winter pieces one last time, before washing them and placing them in the winter bucket. Excuse the work bathroom selfies.
By the end of the week the temperature was rising and the sun was shining. This bell sleeve top is not new to the blog, check here, and is sticking around for spring. This time I paired it up with these adorable flower pattern flats that I snagged at Walmart last year. Also I stacked a long necklace that I have been getting a lot of wear out of, with some pearls. I love how elegant , yet trendy, the jewelry and the top look together. I also received my shopping items form The Bay on Friday and the Get Your Pretty On Spring Challenge is starting on Monday. Stay tuned to see what I have in store for spring! I hope you all have a great first week of April!
