Many of the conversations I’ve had this week have all lead to “I need to get back into doing what I love” . Through my own experience and listening to friends I have realised that there is so much healing in putting your thoughts , feelings and emotions somewhere. It may be in someone’s ear, in a journal , in a song … Or like me in a blog. Somewhere where you can be honest with yourself and forget everything and everyone around you. In writing down my thoughts and being honest with my feelings , i have been able to reconnect with the core of who i am , and what i love to do…To find that balance in life.
This look is my version of boho chic. Raw edges, but also very feminine. Those boots!! They give me goosies, they’re vintage Steve Madden. Not Bourke Street Melbourne …but Atlanta GA! Where all the girls in the store couldn’t get over the fact that I was born and raised in Zimbabwe, lived in Melbourne, on holiday in the states and spoke like a “white girl” (yes the Aussie twang came out.. I couldn’t help it). It was too much for them! My Walker Texas Hat, the one my mom would probably try and get me to take off indoors because it’s disrespectful to talk to your elders with your face half covered, and I would proceed to let her know that this is an indoor winter hat and it stays on! Even if your eyes start to water because you can’t really see! Commit!!!! Walker Texas hat…from your local Target. The cardigan brings the balance. It reasons with the ripped Jeans and the layers of black and it tones down those boots .
I wore this ensemble to a kitchen tea a couple of weeks ago. My advise to the bride to be : Negotiate. Break Even. Allow the balance.
