Crunch Time

Turns out day light savings time and starting a little store mean there are few opportunities for outfit pictures. So here is a half crappy picture of my go-to fall outfit. This was before I decided to open a store in a month. I was probably day drinking and knitting kitten hair mittens...

Dress? French Connection Boots? Steve Madden (here)

Matt said to me the other day that he was impressed at how I was handling the stress. Which made my life because I am trying to be very active in not allowing myself to morph into stressed Yen. Especially because stressed Yen takes it out on Matt and he is being supportive and awesome. Go Matt. 
I won't lie, there is a lot going on and I do feel frazzled and nervous. But when I feel overwhelmed, I either step outside, eat something or repeat to myself  'Calm Down, you are not that special!'. Because it's true. I'm not the only one to take a little chance and follow a dream. Big things are happening all around and flooring choices are important but should not be all consuming. Besides I have so many people who are helping and who have my back. I cannot tell you how many people have offered to help me paint.
With all the painting offers I am thinking of starting a painting company. Might be more lucrative than a vintage shop. But a lot less fun to Instagram...

At least your momma is back and with her the best hugs, which are very helpful in times of stress :)

Oh I know that's the down part of light saving schedule.! But this outfit was just to cute to let it pass, glad you captured it, plus the wall is super fun! Matt is such a great support system, you are so lucky to have such an understanding and supporting significant other!

Cee. ♥

I'm so excited for your new journey and think you'll be great...I only wish your store was a lot closer to Iowa! I also love that advice to, "Calm down, you are not that special." It kind of takes the pressure off a bit. Best Wishes!

I love the "Calm down, you are not that special." I totally agree and need to use that statement more often!
