Dynamic Duos


I enjoyed a mild day yesterday with my LBD, a trench coat, and a pair of heels I resurrected from underneath my bed. Combining closet essentials, I created a dynamic duo that almost any fashion forward gal can achieve simply using staple items (a little black dress and a trench coat). You can take a simple ‘fit so far to achieve an effortlessly chic look that goes from day-to-night and still owns an aura of elegance and femininity, without being too over the top.

...So have you ever experienced a moral hangover? You know the one that can't be treated with greasy food, Advil and gatorade? Yeah, that's the one. Sometimes I live thinking that what I do isn't that bad. But then all the feelings of canceling on a friend, bashing someone, splurging on shoes effervesces over and then you're like shit! So, we justify our actions by saying "well at least I'm not homeless" or "at least I'm not a crackhead". What happens when we keep using this mentality of justification and become nothing more than someone who is living at least? Don't lose sight of your goals and quit justifying blowing off deadlines, meetings, study dates, bucket list, and promises (to others and yourself). Change life's outcomes before you wind up perpetually licking the wounds of your moral hangover.
