Sometimes a little bit of color goes a long way. I love this pop of mauve velvet in these booties, and I love how it brings the whole outfit together. My outfits on the weekends stay simple and comfortable, especially when running around during outfit shoots. If we're running out for coffee I live in these yoga moto leggings with an oversized sweater. What really makes the outfit is the accessories, and the colors. The color inside the bag, and the color in the booties is perfect for this season transition.
This weekend was spent celebrating my 30th birthday and I am still recovering! *I guess this is thirty* I had such a great time, and I feel recharged for the week ahead. I am always a huge fan of the days following my birthday because the holidays are just around the corner, and Christmas shopping is in full swing! Around this time every year I have written a post about the things I have learned, and how another year in the books has changed my perspective on life. This year, I am still mentally working on that post, and I am hoping it comes to me over the next few days/weeks. I don't want to force it, and I know that it'll be right when I am ready.
The only words that come to mind at the moment are that I am very blessed and grateful to be where I am today. It was a crazy year, filled with unexpected twists and turns. This year more than ever I have been reminded of the friendships I have that mean the world to me. I have also been reminded that not everyone that comes into my life is always there for the right reasons. I've learned that gut feelings are usually spot on, and when someone is hurt, they will in turn try to hurt others. Happiness breeds happiness, and misery loves company. Surrounding myself with positive people and positive thinking has changed my entire view on life.
I have learned to let go of things that I have no control over, and to focus on what I do have control over, and that's myself. Every day I remember to be grateful for everything I have, and for the people that are in my life. I know now more than ever that everything we do in life is a choice, and our happiness is self created. I am happy to be surrounded by the best people, and I can only pray that as we get older our friends continue to be as important to us as they are now. So here's to 30, I know that this will be the best year of my life.
