Oceans Apart

What I'm Wearing
Hat // Forever 21
Crop Top // Dear Diary in Santa Barbara
Jacket // Forever 21
Denim // Abercrombie & Fitch (bought at Crossroads Trading Co.)
Boots // Dear Diary in Santa Barbara
Gold Triangle Necklace // Etsy
Tote // Billabong
Oceans apart with no where to go, Tuesdays with you in mind. As of late my body works at a quiet still, numbering my days with each glittering sunrise and sunset. I've no need for time in this place that I live, not since I realized the full length of this life and of you and I. You came in with a silent bang. I felt your footsteps before you entered the room, complicating my once simple way of life before I could even take a breath. I'm still staring at the pieces wondering if what we've destroyed will become something unheard of, something too beautiful to have existed with us before. It's all too close to look at...My biased judgement will tell me to run. Run because this vulnerability you show me could blow me to smithereens. You were so easy to wish for until you arrived. I've found myself staring down the dreams of what could be and realizing they were so much bigger than I could have ever imagined. And I would be lying if I said a part of me didn't shutter at the overwhelming feeling this brings on, but I've asked for it, and I'm working for it, so I have to think that something inside me knows I deserve it.   
I've written my whole life, whether it was for school, for myself, or for publication. I love to write. Creatively though, that's for sure. One of the many things I love about my fashion blog is that every once in a while I can share some of my own personal writings. I've always been pretty shy with sharing a lot of the things I'm passionate about, especially my writing, so most people don't even know that I do it, but as I share more and more I'm beginning to get more confidant in it, and I love that. So today I decided
to write something on the spot for my blog, and finally talk about my writing and the fact that this shall be an ongoing thing :) Now for the outfit. Summers coming to and end, so I wanted to do a nice transition outfit into fall wear(keep in mind the summer outfits will probably still keep happening since I'm spoiled with where I live). I started with this scarf I just got on sale at Urban Outfitters for the biggest steal ever. I wanted to do a really neutral light look since I knew I was going to be wearing the dark pants. I went with a cream colored crop top to go under the scarf, and added a belt to the pants to hold them up :) I then paired the boots to tie in the look and rolled my pants to show a little ankle and definition since these pants can be baggy. Lastly finishing the look off with one of my favorite hats, a tote, and a cream jacket for when the sun goes down.
