Post-Break

I had been dealing with stress and anxiety for the past 2 weeks due to my assignments. I was the kind of girl who strived hard to achieve good outcome so to not to disappoint my family, especially my parents who had worked hard to send me for higher education. I never want to let anyone down, basically. I wasn't dealing my work really well because of people that cooperated less with me- or maybe I was just not doing well enough. Perhaps I was putting too much trust on a person that I barely knew. I didn't understand how some people can use their inefficiency to ruin other's hard work. Lesson of the day: If possible, do everything you can by yourself because some people are just going to destroy it and you looses out, not them. I realised I understand Ed Sheeran's song, Save Myself better now. Moving on to the outfit portion of this post, I wore this look to college except for the hat, choker, sunglasses and purse. I was glad that I found this wrap skirt from my mom's wardrobe. I love the fit of it and I styled it into a sporty, festival look.

Button Up or Down

I'm confused whether button up or button down is the exact word to describe buttons on clothes, but i loved to use both up and down as they both make sense. I'm not going to debate on that silly thoughts, so I'll move on to post-related story. I had this denim blouse for a few years, but I never wore it as I couldn't think of ways to style it. I found that woman's denim blouse are usually tight-fitted and has more of a figure shaping silhouette which can look too hugging and stiff on the body if not styled properly. Last week, I constrained myself to style this blouse with my current wardrobe apparel so I'll get use out of it (even though I thought it was ugly). I wore this blouse to uni the other day pairing with my button up/down skirt. The buttons from the blouse aligned perfectly to the buttons on the skirt. This style somehow made me look taller because the buttons were straight in line. I styled this down with a pair of Converse but if I would style it up, a pair of low block or strap heels will give off a semi-formal impression. Furthermore, a pair of unmatched earrings can turn a dull denim look into a twist of fun.  I would definitely find more ways to style a feminine denim blouse in the future, so stay tune! Happy Weekend x

Shadows

I had always been enjoying posting and sharing my creativity on this platform but I somehow went off wondering if I should be involving in other activities. Sitting down here, pouring out my thoughts may not be the solution. Nonetheless, I wish to record my dilemma of choosing what I genuinely want to do (for reflection purposes in the future hah). I love writing (but I still lack of expression when writing), taking pictures, editing, trying out new styles/products- basically letting my creative juices flow. I put too much effort in deciding whether or not to participate in activity that has similar prospect as writing a blog, which end up draining my energy from posting online and procrastinate when I should be doing my assignment. My indecisiveness gives me the anxiety and sleepless nights thinking what I should do next. I thank God He affirms that decision through my conscience and peacefulness of my heart. Bye to messy thoughts, and hello to confidence. I decided to choose this blog over anything else as I see my self-growth spurting through this and this is what I love in the beginning. Listen to your heart, because they really speaks of what you have to do. I listen to it, hope you are too. Happy April Fools!
