Gap jacket, Zara tee, Urban Outfitters high waist jeans, Urban Outfitters sneaker wedges, vintage Coach ‘Willis‘ bag, Marc Jacobs spike ring
If you love something, you wear the bajeezus outta it, right? Exactly. Part of the rotation is this jacket (see here) and these high-waist black jeans that fit like a glove. Oh and sneaker wedges, been coveting since day one yet avoided purchasing a pair for the longest time. Already owning more than a handful of kicks that I hardly wear now, I didn’t want another excuse to allow them to collect dust. Then a sale happened (a while back) and I got saw these wannabe Isabel Marants at Urban Outfitters for about $20. SOLD. Saved me from questioning a $600 purchase on the real deal; so sorry fashion gods, please forgive me for I am just the typical broke post-college student of life now trying to get her shiz together, haha!

Given in love. To defend. Given in love for protection. Whatever the translation on this Latin phrase may be on my bracelet, it is of that gist. The word “love”, thrown around so loosely yet the display and actions of love seem a bit harder to come by when watching the news or simply walking to work. But, I believe it’s still there and it’s all around, even if its hidden in the nooks and crannies. I’m a hopeless romantic. Just because I’m not currently in a relationship, it doesn’t mean all of a sudden I’m cynical. No way, we still have our relationships with so much more; love, to me is beyond just two people. It’s with family, friends, the self, strangers, across nations, and for everything.
What I meant with needing more love in the world is a friendly reminder to do a good deed for someone that you owe nothing to; it’s as simple as a gentle smile. If you’re having a lousy day, wouldn’t you want something randomly sweet to happen to turn that frown upside down? Well, I’m sure at least five other people around the world are feeling the same exact way. Anyways, some food for thought. Have a good day : )
