Summer Remains

Shirt - Topshop // Skirt - American Apparel // Choker - Topshop // Leather Cuff - Ebay // Shoes - Nike via Asos

In the spirit of summer, I decided to bring back a little colour to my wardrobe with this skirt. Also in the spirit of summer, I thought I’d talk a little about my current state of mind. I can’t tell if it’s the fact that it’s summer or the fact that my personality is evolving that I have become a lot more unconcerned about certain things that may seem trivial in the grand plan that is my life. I’ve been a lot more willing to try new things and experiences and I tend to shrug off negative situations. I’ll give an example. I recently applied to a job I really wanted and got through the interview phase but I ended up not getting it. This could have had me feeling super down and awful but I kind of shrugged it off and tried to see the positives in situation. I figured that at least I had more practice with interviews as they are so essential in the job application process. I decided to let go and not dwell on the bad situation and just kept applying for other jobs. (I am aware this is not the usual story one hears from bloggers or people ‘trying to make it’ as they only show the side of things going great in their lives but I’m going to be real with you and tell you that nothing is going great for everyone 24/7 haha). Everyone has their ups and downs and their own stuff to deal with but what’s important is how you approach the negatives and bounce back from it.

Finding that I’m more chilled about a lot of things (again this might just be summer fever talking) has been pretty cool and it’s been fun, I mean it’s Summer Sixteen (s/o to Drake), but it also has its faults. It means I let a lot of thing slide. When I say I let a lot things slide I don’t mean I’ve let myself go or have become lazy (lol) but what I mean is that I’ve let a lot of people’s actions towards me slide. Things I probably should be mad about, I just can’t find the energy to dwell on. I acknowledge someone has acted wrongly but I try and forgive or at least move on and try and find the positives in the situation. People that don’t stay in your life usually come as lessons. No-one’s presence in your life is truly a waste, as long as you find the lessons to be learned with them.

To put things simply, summer is a time to let go of things and relax a little and maybe go on an adventure or two. I know it’s so much easier said than done but it gets easier once you decide to. And when you decide to, life (or at least summer) becomes a lot more fun.
