Slow Hummingbird

  Tee - Theme, thrifted
Necklace - thrifted
Skinny jeans - One Star, thrifted new stock
Flats - Indigo by Clarks, ebay

Today's post comes in mutiple parts. First up on the agenda - yesterday's outfit. I got grease splatter on my shirt from cooking dinner (stir fry! yum!), and wound up just changing. I wasn't planning to photograph this, but I really loved how the little star necklace looked with this blue (mullet!) shirt. The star pendant was a goodwill find. There's a wonderfully sweet lady who works there that I've discussed my style preferences with - so she hooked me up! I wouldn't have noticed this necklace because it was hidden on a mannequin, but she pulled it right off for me. She also promised to keep an eye out for future stuff.

Part two: I used to have a Mission Statement page. It has now been renamed due to This Awesome Post. I really like the idea of having a personal mission/directive to my style and life aspirations. It's hard to put it all in words, but every time I've gone to edit that page, the text says everything I base my blogging on. The only thing that hasn't felt right is the title. While those things are my mission, they're only my "main" mission - there is so much I want to get involved with. Silly, yes. Nerd-gasm Happy inducing, absolutely.

Part three: Shooooooes These are the first of the ebay batch. These were a reasonable BIN, loved the shape and color, wish I had known to size down. They'll be a fine flat for winter, but they need socks or I feel a bit slide-y in them. The other pairs fit great though. So 3/4 perfect fit, awesome. These ARE comfortable nonetheless. I'll happily grab this brand again - in a size 6.

Part four: I feel like I've barely slowed down. I've been horribly sick, had test after test, got bad news, good news, and kept on running. I think now is a great time to talk about my Wellness project. I plan to begin meditation on a daily basis starting Monday. I feel like I'm cracking a bit at the seams, and I don't want this reflect through to the blog. Wish me luck.

(if you made it through all that, thanks!)

  1. Bonus you got a friend at the Goodwill. That can be a great little treasure to have. Our Goodwill is so big, I don't think I have even seen the same person working there.

    The shoes rock! Love your new Prime Directive statement.

    Also, good for you to take action and start meditating. I think sometimes in our busy and crazy lives, we never have a minute to just stop and breathe. It can certainly wear you down. I am a crash and burn type person. I can go like the Energizer Bunny forever, and then I just crash and get sick and sleep for two days. Good luck!

  2. Sounds like you have a lot going on!

    Having a Prime Directive is such a good idea. I am the type of person who likes things to develop organically and am so bad about stuff like that.

  8. Haha--mullet shirt. :)

    That's awesome that you're going to start meditating. I'm a semi-Buddhist and I can't wait to hear how it goes for you. I recently had to take a step back from life because I was burning out. Take care of yourself! What else are you including in your Wellness project?
