Three Thoughts

Jeans: (old) Legit; Shirt: Vintage Shoes: Woolworths;
Trench Vest/Dress: Karen Millen;
Bag: Sowearto; Sunglasses: Elle magazine


Thank you to my colleague Smanga for these pictures.


One. I'm thinking that I really like this shirt I wore the other day, when it was rainy, and a little bit cold. I'm learning that you don't have to wear a period piece the way it was worn in that period - mix it up. Like this one - untucked, skinny jeans and an edgier vest.

Two. I think about my ballet days a lot. I do regret quitting (can I start again?) - despite the 'you'll grow frog feet' scare. I mean, I already own my not-so-bad posture to my ballet days. Anyway - that's not what I'm thinking now. What I am thinking about is that award I received one year - Most Conscientious. I remember that I didn't know exactly what it meant, but I was disappointed that I wasn't named Best Dancer, or something that sounded more like first prize.

Now that I know a few more words than that little girl, I know conscientiousness is a good trait to have. I hope she left that for me to use.


Conscientious:  
  • involving or taking great care; painstaking; diligent; careful; meticulous; particular
  • governed by or done according to conscience

Be careful with the words you speak. Be careful with the friends you choose. Be careful with the decisions you make.  Be careful. Be thoughtful. Don't be so careful that you do not stop to enjoy the things this life has to offer. But be careful; because while there may be a second chance, there is always a consequence.

Just some thoughts, thank you for reading.

p.s. Three. New stock is in the shop.
