Strange Fruit.

So I turned 19 today, and I've been having a late teen crisis of sorts… I would say most of my issues would come from a disease of over analyzing and simply dreaming beyond my means. I've wanted to figure everything out ever since I turned 18 last year, suddenly I couldn't wait to map out my whole life down to the very minutes seconds, but unfortunately life doesn't work that way.

I ended up procrastinating because I just couldn't focus on the little things…I was greatly obsessed with achieving the unattainable, I got lazy and at the end of the day I made no progress…just a whole lot of wasted time. This time around I am going to slow down a bit, take things one at a time, work on the little things and just remind myself that its okay not to have everything figured out and that the bridge will be crossed one way or another…even if I have to kayak through it.
Wishing y'all a lovely day.

  1. You look amazing. Love the leaf-wreath, although I don't think I would be able to pull it off!

    (And I've been thinking much the same recently...I'll also be taking it a little slower from now on.) x

  4. Happy Birthday! Girl slow it down. At 28 I'm not where I planned to be when I mapped out my life at 18 but I'm glad for the experiences along the way. 19 was actually an awesome year for me then at Summer of 25 I really started to find myself. Enjoy the journey, make your mistakes, enjoy your triumphs.

  7. I agree with the two ladies about me, you have time to just stop and smell the roses, your life will certainly fall into place, but, stressing about it or wanting to organized every little detail will just cause you headaches. Hmm, I think I might just take my own advice. Ha! Anyway, Happy Birthday and you look amazingly beautiful and ethereal as usual. xox

  11. Hey girl, listen, "dreaming beyond your means" doesn't exist. I grew up in a very small German village and moved to New York City when I was only 20, all alone... nothing is impossible! Never give up, but you are right, take life one step at a time, that way it's even more enjoyable. Great text, even more wonderful outfit! I love that skirt combo and your sexy heels :) Keep it up, you have a wonderful blog! Feel free to check out mine , xoxo from Spain

  18. you killed this look babe. fabulous. and for the record -- theres no such thing as dreaming beyond your means. you can achieve anything in this world you want, you just need to find out how and make sure to take the time to pay attention to signs the universe gives you.

    much love from NYC
