Pleats and Flowers

I would’ve never opted for this outfit combo 5 years ago. My mantra had always been to balance the proportions of the outfit. If the top is big and flowy, the bottoms should be slim and fit and the vice versa. Why you ask? Because I’m not your average skinny girl. I’m curvy and have always been. I love my curves but sometimes it gets tricky to dress up when you love a piece of clothing but your body shape doesn’t agree with it. So you got to balance it out. This helps accentuate the curves and doesn’t make you look like an apple with a head and legs! So well, here we are.
This year all I want to do is wake up everyday and break my own set notions. I feel like all these boundaries that I have created for myself, must be taken down. All our lives we set these limits for ourselves – we must not do this, do that or I won’t ever wear this or that etc. and all that crap. Time to break it all and set yourself free. 🙂
P.S. Would you believe if I tell you I found this gem of a skirt for merely 12 bucks lying in the sale section of H&M. I lucked out, right?
P.P.S. No make up (except sunscreen), since I wanted the flowers to do the talking. Just kidding.. forgot to wear my lipstick! Ha. 😉
P.P.P.S. {Promise this is the last one} I cut my hair short (again, I know!) to a short bob (think Winona Ryder in Square Dance minus the bangs). So this is the last post with longer hair, or a pony if you will. Ok bye.

Sundown

It was almost impossible to take pictures that evening with the crazy wind blowing (and that is why my friends, you’ll see me trying to control my hair in every other picture.. smh). Out of 30 pictures that we took, only 5 came out right (where I’m not eating my hair, or have a hair-mustache or blinded by my own hair)! But I’m not complaining since summers here in Florida are so hot and humid – I’ll take whatever Spring weather I can get.

Pink pants. Never thought I’ll ever wear them. But here we are. These pink chino pants are so comfortable, how could I not? What I really liked about them was that they are not ‘in-your-face-pink’. The faded pink color gives them a more casual look and makes them more wearable.

While in Downtown

I am not one of those fashion bloggers who specially dress up for the blog posts. What I wear in my personal life is what I post here (I’ve said this before). This is the idea behind street style/personal style blogging. And truthfully, this outfit is exactly what I wore today to grab a cup of Almond Latte in Lake Mary downtown. It’s nice and warm in Orlando, and undoubtedly I am welcoming mini skirts with open arms.
It’s almost spring, I know.. but then I felt like dressing up for Fall. Ha! I promise, I will include more flowers in my next outfit to soothe your eyes, and to maintain balance of the universe. 😉
Would you believe if I say this skirt was a thrift find (and is almost 2 years old)! Also this top is making it’s second entry on the blog today. Judging by the positive response it got when I first wore it, even I don’t know why I never wore it again (on the blog). Of course I wore it many times but never clicked pictures. Better late than never!

Time is of the Essence

There… just when you think you are having the best time in the world, the moment passes, the day goes by.. It comes to an end! Everything changes.. Nothing remains forever.

And specially when time doesn’t wait for us, why should we wait for the ‘right’ time? Actually, there is no ‘right’ time. The time is NOW! I strongly believe in this, and live my life this way. If I want to do something, I will do it now. Not tomorrow, not day after.. Now!

You should try it sometime.. you would be surprised, how much you will get done, and how soon!

On the outfit front, this is what I wore for a lunch date, a haircut appointment, evening coffee date and then a movie (Martian.. pretty amazing huh!)! I had to be comfortable, because it was a long day out. We are having a ‘dream-come-true’ kind of Fall weather lately.. And these shoes kept me on my toes! Oh how much I want the time to pause.. only if it was possible..!!
