I read a quote the other day that simply stated, "Stop focusing on dumb shit." This quote resonated with me. I needed to be reminded of this. After reading the quote, I quickly decided to really work hard on not over-thinking and giving my attention to stuff that won't even matter the next day. I'm in the process of truly freeing myself (we will talk about this later), and I don't have time to sweat the small stuff or use much needed brain power on unimportant crap. I'm on a certain type of journey right now, and this journey requires that I surround myself with peace, positive people, good energy, good food, and good outfits. With that being written, check out my oversized sweater look below.
I got this oversized sweater off the sale rack at Gap for $25 (sold out, similar here). I usually don't shop in Gap that much anymore, but something told me to go in there and see what they had. I walked in and went straight to the sale section, and this sweater was hanging up waiting to go home with me - so, I adopted it.
I paired it with my over-the-knee boots from H&M, my Berkshire fishnet stockings, Urban Outfitters bag, two-toned leather gloves (sold out, similar here), my beanie, and my Slim Thick Black choker from Intuition. I've learned over the past several months that chokers make any outfit edgy. I can put on a simple shirt, add my choker and boom - my outfit is elevated. Chokers were definitely one of the best comeback trends in 2016.
Check out more looks of my outfit below.
FYI - I took all of these pictures in my new neighborhood ya'll! (Yup, I'm overexcited). The photos above and below were taken on my front porch. I live in an historical New Orleans neighborhood, and I'm just in awe every time I pull up to my place. There's so much inspiration right outside my front door, and it's exciting! I've grown to appreciate antique houses/buildings, graffiti/street art, and quaint coffee shops/bars - and this area has a lot of all that. I'm in love!
I'm still getting settled in my new world, so forgive me for not blogging as much as I usually do. I've been super busy learning my new area, rearranging stuff, laughing hard, eating everything in sight, and being lazy. :-) However, it's time to get back to the business - I got people to see, moves to make, and things to do. See you all again on here soon!
Don't focus on dumb shit!
