I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. On Sunday, I dragged one of my dear friends in medical school to my favorite local park. I’m joking, of course; she joined me very willingly! Wouldn’t you, if the alternative was fluorescent lighting and the company of a thick book? 😉
Predictably, I handed A. my phone, and asked her to snap a few photos for me to share with you this week. A. is stellar in the sciences; I often hear about her leading the pack on her rotations etc. But she’s also very open to learning, playing and creating in interests that she doesn’t dive into day to day, like (iPhone) photography, blogging and fashion. Her openness is as inspiring as her drive to make it in medicine–and that is truly saying something.
Yet just as A. is a well-rounded, multi-talented individual–I know you are too. It doesn’t matter if you’re a “fashion girl”, a “beauty junkie”, a passionate teacher or an amazing doctor. No matter how focused and successful in one field we might become–no matter how niche our blog might seem–there is always more to us, just waiting to be uncovered, and playfully (without pressure) explored.
I love this olive coat from Forever 21, because the metal buttons add a sort of “heft” that signals high quality….without costing me very much at all. This pleated Jason Woo for Target skirt, thrifted last week, is definitely looking like a new staple for the season for me (the perfect length, and a nice balance between sexy and polished), and my beloved Burberry cashmere sweater offers a touch of upper shelf luxury and much-appreciated softness. Yes, please!
The darker my wardrobe choices, the more I’m loving my Ralph Lauren pale wood aviator sunnies. I highly recommend always lightening at least one element of your look up for fall. If you’re anything like me, I’m willing to bet there is enough darkness involved in the look as it is. Why not just try it? Like a lighthearted Sunday photo session with a friend, fashion is a matter of play. Enjoy!
