top - madewell / skirt and belt - uo / belt - cotton on
I got this top at the end of June when I was still on my $100 Summer budget. I love that the stripes on the front and the ones on the back are different colors--that was enough reason for me to add yet another striped 3/4 sleeved tee to my closet. I just know it's going to be so good for Fall. I was actually going to take it with me to NYFW this week, but somehow I think I have too many options for NYFW (which means I've been doing too much shopping lately) and just decided to give in and finally debut this top.
Random Sunday morning reflection: I think I'm in a life-rut. Sometimes I think I get too complacent and comfortable too easily. I settle too easily and I stick to what I know. I'm okay with mediocrity because I'm afraid of change and to fail/to achieve success. I've stopped feeling the good effects of my weight loss because it's been quite a while since I've actually lost any. Eventually change loses its newness and just blends in with who you are now. My body just doesn't feel 'new' anymore even though it is 25-lbs lighter than when I started. Right now, I feel like I'm back where I started: uncomfortable with the skin I'm in. Maybe it's the anxiety of fashion week and looking like a whale compared to thin bloggers that is sparking these dark thoughts, but that doesn't mean I should settle for a job half-well-done. It's time to get a move on and not lose sight of the goal I set for myself back in February.
Until next post,
