Skirt? Vintage, vintage Shirt? Denim, Gap Shoes? Ralph Lauren Necklace and clutch? Thrifted
I can't help but think that this skirt deserves more though... I'll just say it. The movement of this skirt and the amazing floral appliqué deserve to be captured by a street style photographer. Preferably as I am rushing into a Paris fashion show, talking on my phone (busted... no one talks on a phone any more) and being important.
While obviously this skirt (or I, myself) did not make the Paris fashion show cut, this is the skirt I wore during the day of my 30th birthday yesterday. And yes, as much as I want to pretend turning 30 is not a big deal, it still kinda feels like it any ways.
I have lots of thoughts on turning 30 but it's Canadian Thanksgiving today and there is family to see and food to eat. I will say that I had a few moments yesterday where I was verklempt with gratefulness. I think as I get older, I realize more and more that being a human being is hard. That life in general is complicated and messy and happy and sad and crazy and boring and every adjective out there really. But I am so blessed with my family and my friends; I am so blessed in general. Yeah, maybe my camera isn't working so well (in the grand scheme, not a major thing but an annoyance) but there is often a guy behind that camera who, despite the fact that he cares little for photos or for fashion, takes the time to snap a few shots for me... And there is a friend who listens when I ramble on about dreams or when I then, in turn, ramble on about my fears in realizing those dreams. And there is a mother, who gives me the best hugs, and who can still laugh even when it's not funny.
My skirt is great but my people are even greater;)
