Alone, Not Lonely

To be alone and not feel lonely was an important lesson I learned this year. A friend told me a little while ago that if you're bored, you're boring. At first I didn't quite understand what it meant, but after some pondering, I realized that a person is only interesting as the things he/she does. You are what you do, and as long as I have my camera with me, I will never be bored or lonely. As much as I love it, last Wednesday afternoon during my Thanksgiving break, I didn't want to be bothered with setting up my tripod and manually focusing. I decided to take a leaf out of Jen's book and shoot snippets of my outfit and of a beautiful Fall afternoon at the lake. It might not always be at the lake, but I'm definitely going to try and do more of these quick shots so I can blog more often. I've been really drawn to the color orange this season. My mom tried to talk me out of buying this top since she wasn't a fan of the color, but I love it as well as the peter pan collar. It's also extremely comfortable. I've worn it several times to fieldwork already since I got it last month. 

Until next post,
top - marshalls
sunglasses - raybans 
necklaces - brandy melville
jeans - gap
shoes - american eagle
watch - nordstrom


  1. I agree with your friend and with you, Jasmine. I gather you and your boy are no longer together. I hope you are well and surrounding yourself with positivity. :)))

    You look adorable as always.

    xx Love & Aloha

  2. i think the top suits you well!! :D glad you still got it! :D

    hugs for you, dear! :D

  3. This is my first time commenting, but I really love what you're saying here. I've heard that "if you're bored, you're boring" saying before, and I always thought it was kind of silly, but I really like your interpretation of it. I have to disagree with your mom, too - that top is a beautiful color! I'm a sucker for reds and corals.

    (And this is kind of weird, but I'm so sure I've driven by that lake before!)
