Guys, guess what day it is? Come on, guess what day… IT’S HUMP DAAAAAY…

…and that means it’s almost Friday. But you know what? We are always looking forward to Friday, today I am going to enjoy TODAY. It seems like we are always looking at the next thing, or wanting the next thing. I want to learn to be content in this season of life that I am in. To be content in today. I have so much to be thankful for, so today and every other day will be Friday. I don’t have to limit myself to enjoy life just on the weekends. All I am promised is today so, Cheers to everyday being a Friday!

Okay rant over. I might be slightly obsessed with this anorak vest. I love the structure, the look, the length, all the details … and the color!

I am sure you have heard of Rocksbox, and if not take a look at back at this post. I love the pieces I was sent in this month’s box. Only thing is, the necklace is a little too much for me. I have had a really hard time pairing it with my outfits because I feel like it’s so fancy. UNTIL…. I decided to mix things up again. Mixing this anorak vest with such a fancy statement necklace turned out perfect! I feel like what really made it work was the off-white in the necklace that matched the shirt.

I have said it before, and I will say it over, and over again. Don’t limit yourself, try new things and push the boundaries. You might end up surprised! I have learned so much about myself and what I really like by trying new things.

    Elly, what a great blog post! Not only do I love this outfit, but I also love the message! I am definitely guilty of constantly looking ahead and then wondering where the time went?! I also want to make more of an effort to seize the day (even if it’s not Friday!) Xo! Natalie
