Tough Balance

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Get the look:
I'm normally not the moto trend-wearing type, but I decided to step outside my style comfort zone with this jacket. To make my outfit a little more feminine, I paired it with a dress rather than jeans or pants. I always like to find a nice balance of different style elements to keep my outfits as classic as possible. Initially, I was a little worried about how to style this jacket. But, I'm happy with how it paired with my grey sweatshirt dress and I definitely think it will be a good piece for fall.

Speaking of balance, this is something I've been struggling with lately. Being the Libra that I am (yes—I'm secretly into horoscopes), I have a tendency to feel unsettled whenever I don't have a sense of balance or moderation in my life. I'm still catching up on sleep from sorority rush and there is so much going on since it's the first week of classes and no one is actually studying yet, that I feel like I haven't had a second to just relax. It also feels SO weird to be back on campus since I was working full-time this summer, so I think that might be throwing me off too. Like, I have to wear a backpack and study on weekends instead of just have fun? What? Anyway, honestly who knows where this ramble is going buuuut yeah, balance.

Ok that's all—happy hump day :)
