ASOS maxi dress, Dorothy Perkins shoes, shawl from Aleppo, Syria
I’ve only worn this dress once, it’s too stressful to wear so much white especially for someone as uncoordinated as me. I love the comfort and simplicity of it- perfect for those days where I lack the effort to dress up but I do have to iron it first, and I suck at ironing, bleh.
I’ve been thinking too much again about my career, where I’m going in life, settling down, etc. but I had a lovely, long talk with my mom so I feel heaps better. I want a different life, you know? not the typical city thing of how much you earn, what car you drive, what clubs you’re at, etc. I definitely don’t want to be in the corporate world but I guess I have to make sacrifices for now to at least try and get where I want to. Money seems like the solution and cause of so many problems and dreams.
Anyway, I hope you have a lovely weekend. Mine is just ending (boooooo!) but it’s alright, this week involves my cousin visiting from Melbourne, an appointment for a facial and blow dry, and hopefully an ASOS package 😀 so bring it ON. I definitely work my ass off at work for those ASOS packages haha.
I have Kris Allen’s Live like we’re Dying song in my head and I think it’s an amazing message which a lot of people seem to ignore. You only get one life, push all the trivial crap aside and just focus on your happiness. That’s all we really need at the end of the day.
Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
And we could make a feast from these crumbs
And we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you,
What would you wish you would’ve done
-Kris Allen, Like We’re Dying
