What is it about animal print that makes me feel like I can strut down the street and take over the world? In one word, animal print makes me feel CONFIDENT. Since I haven't been as confident in myself lately, I have been leaning on animal print items in my wardrobe so I can "fake it 'til I make it."
As I was putting this birthday post together, I kept thinking about how quickly time has gone by. There are times when I stop myself and think, "woah, I'm in my 30's!" because honestly, it feels like I was just 21 a second ago. When I was a kid, I remember my parents always talking about how quickly time moves and I thought that was ridiculous because time moved so much slower for me. Now that I'm 33, I really understand what they were saying. But you know what? Not one part of me wants to be 21 again. I really love the age I am and I feel like with each year, my life gets better and fuller.
Why do special pieces give me that ooey-gooey butterflies in my stomach?! It's so weird to say that an inanimate object like a piece of clothing but it really is true. Whenever I find a piece I know I'm going to have for a long time and one that feels special for my own personal style, I can't help but get a rush.
Lately, I've been hiding from you. Well, really, I feel like I've been hiding from myself because it's been a weird two months for me. I've gone back and forth about whether or not I wanted to share this publicly (I'm an introvert by nature and try to keep things as private as I can and not overshare), but it hasn't seemed natural to NOT talk about it so here we are.
