If you haven't noticed, I have decided to change my fashion post day from Tuesday to Wednesday. For some reason it just works better for me and I would like to start posting more than twice a week and having my post days more evenly spaced is helping me out. So now I bring you Wardrobe Wednesdays, where I will be shopping my closet instead of online and bringing a little spice to your work week! We all know Wednesdays needed a little spice anyway being the middle of the week not quite the weekend but so close that you can feel the netflix binge calling your name? I am here to help boost you through those last two work days!
This Wednesday has brought with it some heavy thoughts, I am blaming the gloomy weather in Savannah for my wallowing and deep thoughts. How often do we think back to when we were kids and weren't stressed out? Not everyone is lucky enough to have a stress free childhood but those of us that were tend to take it for granted, I know for a fact that up until recently I took my childhood for granted. Even my teenage years when I thought I was stressed with school work? HA no. Good joke Hayley. Wait a few years. Not that I am saying I have all the problems in the world, there are definitely people with way bigger issues than me and I am adult enough to realize that. But I can't help but wonder if we ever get to a place where we are happy with the way that we are and where we are in life to live stress free? Will I ever reach a point where I am not constantly berated by media telling me that this persons life is better? Or without inflicting those thoughts upon myself because I see someone with a nicer car or what seems to be a better life? Realistically I know we all have our own issues but some people are better at putting on a show. I for one try to appear to have my shit together and I most definitely do not. And sometimes I fail and recently I've gotten tired of trying to make people believe it. So starting today I am making a promise to myself to stop stressing over things that are out of my control and to keep going after what I want but not to the point that it kills me. But also if there are changes that I don't have the guts to make right now, to be okay with that too. I will keep getting stronger and once I am strong enough to make changes then I will make them and right now it might just be the universes way of telling me it's not the right time. But I am confident that time will come. Are there any of you who have found a way to not let the world stress you out?
Well now that my little rant for the day is over and probably made you think about things that are just too damn heavy for a Wednesday, on to my outfit for Wardrobe Wednesdays! This dress is a product of my lack of self control. I went into the store Dry Goods because of a dress I saw in the window, I had ZERO intention of actually buying the dress but I knew that I would regret it if I didn't at least try it on. Well I got to looking around the store, found two more dresses that I just had to try on. My mom shook her head when I went into the dressing room because she knows my shopping problem. Of course I fell in love with all three and bought them all. One of them is a very professional dress that I rationalized as being part of my new professional wardrobe. But the dress I have for you today is not that dress, while it is still very professional, if a little too short to be strictly business dress, I have styled it with a Chloe and Isabel necklace, my go to Target caged sandals, and my Victor + Alexander bag. I strongly encourage you to visit Dry Goods e-commerce site, but I warn you, you will fall in LOVE!
Target alas also does not have my shoes in stock any more but they have some equally as cute cage sandals!
My Chloe and Isabel necklace is still in stock! It is a perfect staple piece that adds life to many of my outfits! Be sure to shop through my merchandiser Heidi Knepper and get this piece before it's gone!
