Fans and High-Waisted Shorts
Monday, April 18, 2011
So on the days that I don't need to wear business attire, I am very excited to get dressed. So excited that I can't decide on what to wear. It's almost as if my whole entire closet opens up! Although it was very ironic that I finally decided on pieces that could be used in the office (i.e. collared shirt and slack like shorts)
I think that these are my first shorts of stylish nature and my favorite pair. Before this pair of shorts, my style was very plain. I loved shopping but I wouldn't necessarily buy the things I wanted because I thought that I wouldn't look good in them.I think the purchase of these shorts made me realize how much more fun clothes could be. And that I didn't need to be a certain "cool" to buy certain clothes. It doesn't matter as long as you like it and you think it looks good. My boyfriend bought them for me as a valentines day gift...so I guess I'll have to thank my now varied taste and appreciation in fashion to him. =)
I don't have that many accessories, but I really like the ones that I do own. This ring (the big one on the right int he picture) was one of those I got to have it moments-It was too pretty not to! Fans have always been such a pretty symbol for me because they remind me of one of my favorite books "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden. After reading this book I became obsessed with the history and culture of geishas. Coincidentally I found the simple silver fan ring ( the ring on the left in the picture) the day after I finished reading the book and told my dad that I had to have it. I wore it everyday for like a year, and then I decided to wear different rings. Recently during the last year I found it again and I decided to wear it again. From that time on I haven't taken it off since.
I have been obsessed with this bag since I found it my closet back at my home home. It's just the perfect size for all my things! It was my mom's when she was younger. Oh how I love shopping through her closet. =)

The last picture is a nice little reminder to breathe. Don't forget to breathe! Literally. Okay just kidding, you know I meant figuratively. Life's too short to be worried all the time. Revel in those sweet moments like a beautiful sunny day and time spent with family and friends. On this note I hope everyone starts off their week with a fantastic Monday! =)
