There are always those times where you’re just so busy that suddenly it’s like everything goes on auto-pilot. You’re feeling drained and losing inspiration and motivation. That’s where you need to be like, “PAUSE. I need a break.”
Don’t be afraid to hit the pause button on life. Seriously. You shouldn’t have to over-work yourself to do what you do. You need to put yourself first.
When you’re overwhelmed with things or your brain is fried, you need to take a step back and take time to yourself. Go do something you love. Kick back on the couch and binge watch Netflix. Go walk around and catch Pokémon. Put on a face mask. Take a nap. Sing and dance like no one is watching. Draw. Read. Play sports. Get out there. Blast music.
I’ve been going on autopilot for a couple of things. I’ve been juggling several things I wanna do at once and just burning out. I decided that I needed a break, and that’s okay. Originally, Sunday was a day where I planned on being extremely productive. I was going to get XYZ done and then some. But what happened? I ended up doing nothing. I slept. I smacked on a face mask. I caught up on tv shows. I worked on my ECLP. And then I called it a night.
Do I regret it? A little. But I’m soooo happy that I decided to tell Life, “Time out.” And do me. So sometimes if you need it, shut off your phone and do you.
Now let’s get to this outfit, shall we? Back story: I walked into Zara and fell in love with this bomber because of a) the phrase, duh and b) the white. Once I saw it, I knew I needed it and here we are. Again, I’m scared of getting white dirty… but it’s just so beautiful.
Since the writing is in red, I figured a red top would compliment it just right! So here we are with a red crop top from Brandy Melville. I didn’t want to take attention away from the bomber, so I paired this with a black skater from Forever21. Chokers are a thing now so I just tied this suede necklace on from Na-kd Fashion. And wedges have been my thing for the summer, so here are some gladiator styled ones. Woo!
