It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult....... Lucius Annaeus Seneca

What a gorgeous day it is today!!!! I LOVE this time of year......

I took a trip to goodwill yesterday, it was a treat to myself before the dentist. :) While there I found this vest. (along with a few other goodies) I think is one of those pieces that fellow shoppers have held up to their friends and mockingly said "I think you should buy this" followed by a "yeah right" and giggles. It however was too ugly for me not to snatch it up for whopping 100 pennies. I can't wait to play with it, I envision cutoff jeans and layers or maybe over a jersey dress with pearls....hmmmm the possibilities!

Tunic: Target
Necklaces: Nordstrom
Vest: thrifted
Shoes: Target
Leggings: Target

What are you holding back in your life? What is it that you really want but are afraid to reach out and grab it?

I am afraid to truly embrace who I am, what my likes, dislikes, hopes and dreams are. I am too swayed by what I think other people will think of me. I no longer want to be held back by other any area of my life. Fashion included!


  1. I love this outfit, i love the combination of colors, red, blue, white, i have always liked these colors together, for some reason. I love your shoes as well, totally my type of shoes. You rock leggings by the way, i am totally affraid of wearing leggings due to my very short and muscular legs, eek!

    What you just described on your footnote, is what i am exactly affraid of as well.."What will people think of me" -mostly-, i don't know why i can't let go, sometimes, i do let go, but most of the time, it holds me back, when it comes to everything, i know, i need to learn how to become free, and express myself, the way that i wish i could, i know, it won't hurt anyone, anyways.

  2. haha! i think that vest is fantabulous! everyone else's loss i say! it looks great over the tunic!

  3. love that flowy top! you look great. i tried the shoes on at target, but too high for me. bit of a wimp here. love them though!

    i am very slow to forgive and it definitely holds me back.

  4. delurking for the first time.

    I have a similar flowly tunic from Target, its a white with blue polka dots. Does your legging roll down. Target wa sout of stock and I got one from Forever 21 and still I had to keep hitching it up.

    Love the outfit. and I love how you dont even look like a mom to 3.:)

  5. This outfit is perfection! I absolutely love everything about it! Gorgeous!

  6. This outfit is so amazing. I hope you realize how amazing it is. It is. AMAZING.

    What am I afraid to grab? Responsibility for myself, sometimes. It's so much easier to slough it off. Thanks for the reminder.

  7. Awesome. I'm so impressed that you pulled this off. I think it's really fun.

  8. I sooo like the outfit...cute vest and shoes!

  9. this outfit feels like a piece of your soul. like it a lot!!
