I found this jacket on a thrift store expedition (FOR LIKE $4!!!).
As I picked it up, I imagined putting it on, looking in the mirror and seeing this:
Today, I tried and I got this:
Not exactly what I envisioned.
But people, I've got so many REAL problems in my life (for instance, those indentations around my ankles when my socks are too tight ... or the Flixster app on my iPhone shutting down before I'm able to see what time the Bieber* movie is playing in 3D) that I have little room for minuscule wardrobe worries like this one.
Sure, it is less "Michael Kors" than I was imagining... but it's still pretty stinking cute.
Camel Jacket (thrifted); Boyfriend Jeans (similar)
Black Beret (similar)
In case my sarcasm didn't communicate it (and it rarely does), I was feeling incredibly grateful today. It was one of those days where I was faced with the magnitude of my good fortune. My life is far from perfect, but there are just so, so many things that are incredibly easy in my life. I stumbled onto this realization today when I really did worry for a minute about the indentations on my ankles from my socks! Seriously. I wouldn't make that up. I mean if I am so blessed (sheltered, clothed, well fed, employed, loved) that I have time to worry about some sock indentations... let's go ahead and call me fortunate.
Mega shout out to The Big Man (occasionally that's what I like to call God) for his incredible generosity!
What is the most ridiculous thing you've caught yourself "stressing" about recently?
*Oh and for those of you keeping track that is 3 Bieber mentions on this blog in less than a week. I hadn't considered going for a record... until now.
