Easy Breezy

I had a pretty bad shopping week this week and splurged on a few things, two of which are these awesome shoes and floral kimono. I had a pretty big event today though, so I wanted to wear something new for the occasion. 

Since we had a DSW open up in town recently, I booked it there and got these early 2000s-esque shoes for under 40$! I saw a pair at target for a few bucks cheaper, so make sure to check both places out. They look eerily similar. 

The kimono was a last minute pickup to use as a cover up but I actually ended up falling in love with it. I don't know how I am going to incorporate this into more outfits, but I can't wait to see what I come up with.


Embracing Loneliness

Like most people, I've had trouble making close friends since leaving high school. It puts us in a situation where we've had to put a lot of work and effort into simply just trying and understandably it gets tiring. With lack of response, of course, comes discouragement and we end up getting lonely. I have gone days really upset that things didn't work out and in turn makes it that much harder to get up a try again. The longer you put that contact off, the harder it becomes for us to try to get on our feet again.

For me, this blog serves as a mean of social contact, although it isn't as direct as I previously stated, it helps me get by until something comes along. Thats how it is with most people, I have come to learn. Everyone is a lot more lonely than they want to admit, whether it be through social media or something else. But here is my question to you.... Why are you ashamed to admit you are feeling alone? We are all there. We all understand, yet we fight off any signs of weakness to save us the embarrassment. I'm tired of pretending I'm okay all the time. I just want someone to be there with me and hopefully I can also be that person in return.

Yet even as I type this, I still feel alone yes, but I understand that I am not the only one. I will not allow this feeling to drown me. I will not allow myself to give up, and neither should you.
