While most people mourn the beginning of what is traditionally a 5 day work week for those with traditional jobs, I see it as an opportunity to celebrate. Especially when I’m on day two of my week long vacation. And while the thought of lying around all day in my PJ’s watching countless hours of law and order is enticing, I much rather prefer dressing up for blog shoots, working out and soaking up the sun. I stumbled across a captivating quote on Instagram yesterday (follow me at Just_Jess_Fashion.) The caption read “the fear of wasting a great outfit on an insignificant day.” And truthfully dedicated readers I have had this fear all my life. I truly believe it is this fear that led to the inspiration for creating a blog. While I may not live in Hollywood, or live an ultra glamorous life comprised of day to day professional photo shoots. I live each day fulfilling it by my definitions of happy, and that is enough for me.
Today what made me happy was putting together an ensemble that reminded me of my ultimate fashion icon, Holly Golightly. I know I’ve blogged about how much I adore this legendary fashionista but I could seriously type for days on how I idolize the classic, effortless and fabulousness that is Audrey’s most infamous role. I initially opted for a more casual look. But casual is borderline a swear word in my vocabulary. So rather than pairing this weekday appropriate top with a pair of shorts, I opted instead for my favorite leather skirt (which by the way was only $7 at H&M. Gotta love those end of season blow out sales.) As I was looking in the mirror trying to figure out what was missing I looked down and low and behold my pearl necklace, also from H&M, just happened to be sitting on the counter. It seemed to be screaming “pick me!” Alas, I put it on and I instantly felt like Cinderella gazing at her reflection after being transformed by the fairy godmother. And when you can compare a wardrobe decision to feeling like a Disney Princess, you know you’ve put together a good ensemble and totally worthy of sharing with the world. Thus although nothing life shattering happened today, I did have an opportunity to share my great decision with you, my loyal readers, and that is today’s biggest accomplishment. Take that insignificant day!
