I can’t believe that June is almost coming to an end and we are all set to enter the second leg of 2015! The second half of the year has always been my favourite so I’m not really complaining. It’s a completely different thing that I am not even half way done with my ‘Things I have to accomplish this Year’ list and I am definitely beginning to feel the pressure. Although, I am quite happy about the things that I have been able to get done. For example, one of things that I wanted to do was become more active! Be it taking that extra dance class or just heading out to finally meet up that old friend who you have been making plans to meet with since 2014 or getting involved in a project close to your heart. I’ve realized that doing these small things out of my regular routine, makes me a happier and more satiated person instead of just being jealous of someone’s I-will-brag-on-Facebook accomplishments or even overcoming that feeling of just not doing enough! Thanks to social media, we often fall prey to comparing our lives with someone else’s curated display of happiness, not realizing that it is probably not even the whole truth. What I have come to realize is that, happiness is a choice, feeling happy for other people is in fact, a sign of a mature person! It may take some time to get used to but once you’re there, you will feel so much better from within!
Another thing was blogging more often! I did get to a slow start but I have been making a conscious effort to keep up with it. I have been trying to make the content as interesting as possible with, the images we churn out or even the write ups to go with it. Before the rain gods showered us with these sudden, crazy bouts of rainfall, this look was definitely my ideal summer look and working on this post has provided me with that much needed closure from summer! A printed maxi dress can be a staple through the year and you can style it in so many different ways! Personally, I love the hues of this dress and paring it with this light lace vest made it a favourite. Trying to recreate an image I saw on Pinterest, we scouted for this location and played dress up with this minimalistic accessories. If I was to wear this look for a regular day in the city, I would just add a fringed tan bag and just replace the head gear with a straw hat! Another way would be to to just add a denim jacket of the vest and thrown on a black bucket back and lace up sandals. See, there are just too many ways to rock this dress! How would you style this piece? Also, head to the Only store this weekend and if you’re lucky, you many be able to snag this beauty on sale!
