At 25 I was a very selfish person. I thought more about myself and my needs than any one else. I picked fights with my husband, left friends in need, acted in a way that mostly benefited myself, and thought the world revolved around myself. Which I think is typical of a 25 year old (I hope?) I had yet the learn the etiquette of writing a thank you note, or bringing a gift to a party, or bringing a friend food after a baby. I was basically all talk and no action. I’d like to think I would be pleasantly surprised to find that I truly enjoy helping people, and that I often do things for the pure enjoyment of helping a friend in need (with zero expectation of reciprocation.) I have better manners, a better understanding of how to be a good friend, and a need to become a better person each and every day.
I blogged a look similar to this once and really liked it, so when I found this top hidden in the back of my closet I decided to recreate it! This Forever 21 top/dress is a favorite of mine. It is silky and loose and makes me feel really cute. Who doesn’t want that? I am eyeing a similar one from Free People that has really caught my eye, too! Also, these flats from Nordstrom are so fun and on trend, and work for me equally in my personal life as well as for work!
Finally, this Rocksbox (Kendra Scott) turquoise necklace above is something I’m debating on keeping. It’s $64, is that worth it? Help me!
