in a funk.

 stolen from mom's closet jacket; Forever 21 shirt; Forever 21 shorts; Jeffrey Campbell "foxy" platforms; c/o TIKKR "burnt orange" watch; c/o Konstantino bracelet; vintage & handcrafted jewelry
I love that I look like a deer caught in headlights in basically every picture I take. Except that's total sarcasm & I don't actually love it. What I do love? This sweet watch sent over to me from TIKKR. I hate that I'm always such a neutral nancy but I have the absolute hardest time integrating color into my outfits. I'm taking baby steps though by trying to add little pops either in my nail polish or lipstick or accessories & these watches totally enable me to do that. They come in a variety of colors (GLOW IN THE DARK TOO!) & the bands swap out so you can change to whatever color you're feeling that day. Peep their store HERE & go get yourself some TIKKR.

So I've been in a total funk the past few days. It happens literally every time I come home from NY. It's just some shit because I know I need to be living there & I just need to make it happen but it's so hard to just pick up & move to a different city & have to find a new apartment & a new job & start a new life. But I want all those things so I'm not sure what my deal is. I think for the past 8 months now that I've been living with my parents I've fallen into a hole of comfort & easy livin'. & I've been waiting for some sort of fairy god mother to come swoop me away & give me my dream job because when you're 23 with a bachelor's degree (& 75 effing thousand in debt due to getting said degree) life is supposed to be sorted out right? Ew, easier fucking said than done. That was just me thinking out loud.. sorry for THE longest post ever.

  5. I'm the same way when it comes to wearing colors. I've found that it's easiest to slowly add color via accessories, like you said.

    As for your out loud thinking: I definitely see you in New York. Go for it, and don't look back!

    P.S. I love the platforms.

  10. I've always loved your blog and think you have such a great style. I never thought about commenting your blog until now because I have never knew anyone else who is in the same situation as I am! I used to live in the city on my own too and I went to school for my AA in fashion marketing. After that I had to go back home to figure what I wanted to do next. I've been living back at home for 6 months. Its nice and all but I hate the area lol. I visit my friends in the city and every time I come back home I'm like why the hell am I still living here! haha. It really is hard to start over again. The thought of it scares me to be honest. But yeah sorry for the paragraph lol. I really feel like I relate to you and it makes me not feel so alone. The situation sucks, I feel your pain!

  14. Love the shoes!
    You'll figure it out eventually, it's an important decision but you should go with your gut feeling... also change can be a nice thing, you should embrace it and look forward to everything that can happen in a different place, also...it's best to regret something you did than something you didn't.

  20. I know exactly what you mean about being in a funk. I was the same way after I visited NY- coming home just SUCKED. Something about that place just makes you realize how much every other place blows in comparison.

  26. I'm realllly into that watch...I think I most def need the glow in the dark version.
    Also. I'm super sorry about your situation- a friend of mine (actually, the girl in my "fashion icon" post) is going through the same "knowing you should be somewhere, wanting to be there, but still feeling absolutely overwhelmed" thing. Good luck!
    Oh- hilarious that you think your post is too long- as you know, my posts are about as lengthy as "War and Peace". Maybe I should work on that...
