The plaid takeover

Long live the plaid (and first world problems)...

So. First world problem #101 - how to respond (correctly) to a conversation you have no words for (except for that awkward 'haha' [aka. I don't know what to say but I hope this passes the topic] kind of response). Don't get me wrong, most of the time I'm pretty good with my words but lets just get this straight - I’m not THAT good that the world signifies my every sentence. And with no surprise, most situations turn into nightmares waiting to happen - I'll give thanks to my incapable use of words (you go Brooke!). And how does this all happen? Well i guess it all starts with me - listening to all sides of my controversial thoughts, feeling somewhat power worthy of a judge in his high court, deciding my plan of action and the results of such a decision; more often than not, a bad decision that once thought was a good idea (at the time, as it always is, right?). 

So what’s currently on the agenda then? London. My heart tells me yes – My head tells me maybe – and my surroundings tell me a big bold NO – dang it! Why play life safe? I enjoy the un-expecting chaos that spontaneity brings. I’ve come to realize that as of late, my words have become irrelevant – there’s no point passing time talking forever and a day about something you ‘one day’ want to do; the only time we’re guaranteed is now and the only way we’ll create a future is to first, create a now – do things while the doors are open, take chances on love, say yes to opportunities when given and say goodbye to the times of yesterday.

London is calling me and so is plaid. It was love at first sight the moment I stepped into the t b-e-a-utiful city that is, London. I think it’s only fair that I go back and make that place mine, yeah? Oh, and perhaps find a man too? #wishfulthinking but alas, you never know.

Anywho, enough talking, more doing. This outfit was inspired by the glorious days of London. Where fashion is full-front and freedom is almost a staple. Sipping tea, devouring delicious scones whilst dining outside - listening to the sweet sounds of Friday afternoon bliss: captivated, absolutely captivated.

Enjoy your weekend you beautiful specimens.
